The nominated Q was not present, so scramble start for this Q. Off for a 0.5 mile warm up run. The main event was set with teams of three men. Each man picked a style of merkin and each man in the team did it to max together. After each team had done three sets, … Continue reading Ouch
Today’s theme is the humbling reminder that TODAY we’re all 1 day closer to ‘leaving’ than YESTERDAY! My younger son’s friend lost BOTH grandfathers within a week . . . also, day of workout I failed to make the connection with Pearl Harbor Day that made our theme even more fitting! Warmuparama: OYO: head rotations, big arm … Continue reading Q4: Leave right
The Q was voluntold due to an unexcused absence. Theme of the day was elevator: I., 5, 10, 15, 20. It seemed better in theory than reality, especially when it was Burpee time. Sets included: calf raises, SSH, v-sits (the 1, 2, 3, 1 count was a bit much), American hammers, incline merkins, box jumps, … Continue reading Fleetwood Tough
Normal warmup (SSH, Grasspickers, run). Then the Pax divided into two groups of 5 men.

Punishment included dragonwalk, BTTW with mountain climber legs, broad jumps, box … Continue reading We Are Still Here – Even if the Backblast is somewhat iffy
Seven guys each took charge of six minutes of the Q. The goal was to see which Q could bring the most pain. The result was an impressive level of max output for 42 minutes.
We met at Fleetwood park and did a mix of merkins, high knees, duck walk, side planks, windshield wipers, V-sits, Navy seal sit-ups and push-ups. Each PAX member then chose an exercise and we did as many reps as their age. Finished off with crab soccer working those triceps till they were toast. It was … Continue reading Wet n Wetter
The Pax circled up and each man took a turn choosing what type of merkin and abs to lead in. Chest was pretty well spent after 45 minutes.
Dealers Choice starting with 10 and increasing by ten up to 100, then back down. Then back up with travel exercises thrown in between sets. The dealer rotated around the Pax for each selection. Lots of fun.
Standard fare of merkins, dry docks, flutter kicks, people's chair with run in between each exercise. Last 15 minutes was crab soccer and bear-crawl handball. Good times!
60 seconds of max effort then change to another exercise for the same. Do it for 15 minutes. No break. Alternated with legs, chest, abs. Then 30 minutes of soccer. Penalty for out-of-bounds or being scored on was merkins.
