  • AO:
  • QIC: Flush
  • FNG's:
  • PAX: Shocker-FNG, Night Cap, Jim Cantore, TopHat, Norwood, Dolph, Mayor, Edison, Pockets, Mile High, Flush

The workout started with a little confusion when it was discovered that not one, but two Q’s had arrived with plans to lead the PAX.  After a brief discussion TopHat allowed YHC to proceed with his VQ.

Warm Up:

Side Straddle Hops x 15 IC

Mountain Climbers x 15 IC

Windmills x 15 IC

Prisoner Squats x 15 IC

The Thang:

Mosey from the park, up the hill (all the way) to the back parking lot of the First Baptist Church.  The lot was ironically one of the locations TopHat had chosen for his Q; providing us a preview of what’s in store for next week…..don’t miss it.  It’s going to be good!

The PAX circled up for a HIIT beat down that included 2 rounds of 10 exercises.  Each exercise (see below) was performed for 60 sec, followed by 15 sec of rest, with a 60 sec break between the two rounds.

  • Burpees
  • American Hammers
  • Peter Parkers
  • Catcher’s Calf Raises
  • Inch Worms
  • Prisoner Squats
  • V-Ups
  • Quad Push-Ups
  • Revers Lunge with High Kick
  • Kick-Outs

The mumble chatter slowed a little near the end of the first round but the AC/DC soundtrack kept everyone moving and they did an awesome job grinding it out to the end.  After a quick count-off we moseyed back down the hill to the track behind middle school.  Once everyone gathered in turn 1, YHC made a brief comment about how the various demands on our time requires us to have balance and focus in our lives to avoid getting into a rut.  With that, we began working on our balance and focus. Much like the HIIT beat down, each of the exercises were done for 60 seconds, followed by 15 seconds of rest.  The difference being, these exercises were a lot more (or exactly) like yoga poses.

  • Pointer Plank
  • Tree
  • Captain America Punches
  • Warrior II to Half Moon
  • Warrior III

    There were minor complaints about yoga from the PAX but in the end most agreed it was harder than in looked and walked away with a new found respect for the difficulty of gaining balance and focus.  There was even discussion about throwing a little more in next week.My first Q is now in the books.  It was a pleasure to lead y’all.  Everyone did an awesome job!
