10 brave souls posted in the Midoriyama heat for a not-so-typical Q from YHC. In attempt to keep the PAX guessing about the workout, YHC consulted the exicon for some exercises he hadn’t performed in a long time (or at all for that matter). YHC could tell his Q’s were getting predictable when half the guys started burpees a minute before the workout began. They said they were “getting a head start on things”. Whatever. Unbeknownst to them, my weinke had 0 burpees. Good work on the EC, boys. No FNG’s, quick disclaimer given, let’s get going.
- SSH X 10
- FLUTTER LICKS X 10
- LOW SLOW SQUAT X 10
- DON QUIXOTES X 10
- MOROCCAN NIGHTCLUBS X 10
Like YHC stated earlier, he wanted to mix things up a bit, so we started with 11’s Route 66 style. Start at first light pole and all PAX perform 1 Flying Squirrel, 10 Little Gumby In The Woods. The Folsom deficient PAX immediately asked for a demo. They are known as Smurf Jacks on the exicon, but they were sorta renamed Little Gumby In The Woods after watching Gumby knock them out at Folsom. It’s a SSH performed while in the squat position. It’s funny to watch tall guys like Blart perform this one. Anyway, 10/1 at first pole, mosey to next pole 9/2 and so on until 1/10 achieved. Legs were smoking already.
YHC then led the men to the shady part of one of the soccer fields for the next exercise. If anyone ever posts with Def Leppard and Karaoke is called, he wails out the most God-Awful rendition of George Strait you’ve ever heard. Even Whoopee would be crying and begging for some Rush. YHC picked out another country singer inspired exercise called Tammy Wynettes. She was famous for her song “Stand by Your Man”. Grab a partner. While standing beside your partner, P1 does 10 Merkins, P2 does 10 Squats in sync with P1. Flapjack and perform 5 rounds for a total of 50 Merkins and 50 Squats per PAX.
Next, Mosey to the small soccer field for a little Run D.M.C. Run one lap around the field, then 20 Diamond Merkins. Run another lap, then 20 Merkins. Run one more lap, then 20 CDD’s.
Mosey back to the shady part of the large soccer field for the Gross. 12 reps of 12 different exercises. They were: Merkins, Squats, Big Boy Situps, Werkins, CDD’s, Plank Jacks, Military Merkins, Side Squats (Right), Side Squats (Left), and Flying Squirrels. Yes, YHC realized that’s only 11. Diamond Merkins were missed. Q fail. But then again, it IS Midoriyama.
PAX were then instructed to partner up with their earlier partner and perform 5 more rounds of Tammy Wynettes (which would be 100 Merkins and 100 Squats total for each PAX).
Running low on time, the Q pushed hard to get 11’s Route 66 style done with Flying Squirrels and CDD’s. A bunch of negative mumble chatter was directed towards YHC on this decision. Defib pushed YHC to the 4/7 mark with just 2 minutes to go. Omaha was called and we Moseyed back to the flag just in time.

YHC took us out in prayer.
Def Leppard led a great “Cliff’s Notes” study on the apostle Paul at the Forge Wednesday night. One point that stuck with me is Paul urging Christians to be imitators of Christ. If you are a Christian, people are watching you to see if you “practice what you preach”. The very next day, I had a moment where I wasn’t acting as Christlike as I should be. As soon as the moment passed, Def Leppard’s words from the night before came to mind. Screwed up again. Thank the Sky Q above that he is more than willing to forgive us if we are truly sorry for whatever we said or did.
Great work by all the guys for pushing through the Midoriyama heat and getting it done. Thanks to you men for coming out and supporting me and allowing me to Q. It was awesome.
Until the next time,
