Training for the Beach

THE SCENE: Cool with a nice break in the rain (i.e. perfect)
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER (no snot rockets, don’t get close enough to hold hands and swap spit)
WARM-O-RAMA:

SSH x 15, IC;  CP x 5, IC; Tie Fighters, front and back x 15 each way, IC
THA-THANG:
This is a 4 corners workout.  To maintain social distancing protocol, no more than 5 in a corner at a time.  This is a workout scientifically designed to get a HIM ready for the beach.  First order of business is to, one at a time, grab a coupon from the CMU pile.  This is yours for the entire workout.  Because HIMs are the ones to carry all the heavy stuff across the sand to the beach, everybody carries a CMU everywhere they go.  Beach themed music provided.

  • First Corner – 3 exercises:  Curls (for the girls) x 25; Flutter Presses x 25 (2 ct); Goblet Squats x 25
  • Second Corner – 3 exercises:  Superman Swims x 25; CMU rows x 25; Lunges x 25;
  • Third Corner – 3 exercises:  Derkins x 25; American Hammers (with CMU option) x 25 (2ct); More Curls x 25;
  • Forth Corner – 1 exercise.  25 Blockees (it helped to think of the CMU as a cooler full of beer)
  • If you hear Queen’s “Bicycle Race,” stop what you’re doing and hit your six for Freddy Mercury’s the duration of the song (3:01).
  • Complete at least 2 circuits
  • Q calls an audible after 2 circuits to go run a little bit.  Groups split up to run up Baby Everest and down the Dragon or vice versa, stopping at one point to knock out 5 burpees.  Race ensues. Bunny may or may not have taken a short cut to beat Gibbler.  All wagon wheel and finish together at the AO.

MARY:
Just enough time to get to 5/20 on Capt. Thors
COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Explained the ongoing chaos in my life.  For the last month or two, more and more responsibilities and obstacles have been added and I have been poorly managing them.  I am working on controlling the items I can, taking the time to decompress and be the father and husband I want to be.  Control the Chaos.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA

21 HIMs got it done!

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Shared scripture that QIC has been meditating on recently in pursuit of “cleaning up my act” by living more intentional in my spiritual life, my emotional/social life, with respect to my physical health, and my financial health. Shared Psalm 127:1 and spoke about the importance of recognizing the Lord must build our “house” or we labor in vain; Reminder we each have various “houses” that we are building – our home life (house), work life (house), church life (house), and private/secret life (house).  Important to inspect these houses and be sure the Lord is the master builder and foundation.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Convergence and Q 101 on Sat, 2/29 at Asylum at 7am; Bring food and drink for Wesley House donations (next week last week to donate)

They don’t call me Charmin for nothing

THE SCENE: While still a little damp on the ground, Charmin delivered on his no rain guarantee.  Around 50 degrees for perfect weather.
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
WARM-O-RAMA:

SSH (IC) x 20 while everybody slowly trickled in (looking at you Cheatsheet); Imp Squat Walkers (IC) x 15; BAC forward and backerds (IC) x 10; Rocky Balboas on the curb (IC) x 20; butt kickers across PL; high skips back to the other side.

THA-THANG:

  • Mosey to CMU pile for a very quick partner round about (back to back, with CMU passed around) x 20
  • Mosey to Pav-A-Lon for partner leg raise-wall sits (one partner on the ground trying to kick the other one in the head while he does a wall sit and tries to throw the legs back to the ground).  Timed for 1 min, then switch.
  • Mosey to Circus Maximus for some partner exercises.  Each partner runs in opposite directions.  When they meet, do partner Merkins x 20 twice, then partner BBS x 20 twice, then back to back squats x 20.  3 total laps.
  • As we’re about to do another set of the above, the Q feels a tremendous sense of urgency to call an audible and mosey toward the bathroom.  His name is, after all, CHARMIN!
  • While the Q is humiliatingly otherwise engaged, Code Brown (yes, I get the irony too!) assumes the reins and calls out a burpee route 66 up the tail of the dragon.
  • The Q having caught up and knocked out a few punitive burpees on his own, the PAX moseys back to the CMU pile to unwind what was wound up at the beginning.

MARY:
Dealer’s choice (Buns calls out Hello Dollys; Fabio calls out Am. Hammers); then we finish strong with ATMs.
COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
Use the TAGS on right-side to record PAX (BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOURSELF) in attendance. Be sure to select the AO in CATEGORY above TAGS and then delete these notes!
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Been reading “First Lead Yourself.”  From the book: “Leading from good to great requires discipline – disciplined people who engage in disciplined thought and who take disciplined action.  To engage in disciplined action first requires disciplined thought, and disciplined thought requires people who have the discipline to create quiet time for reflection.  The net result is not doing more, but doing less.  Stop-doing lists reflect greater discipline than ever-expanding to-do lists.”
