 I wanted to do something different this morning. SO starting with the normal “template” of a workout, I started over. Warm-up with no Side Straddle Hops created a little mumblechatter as we moved to the field. There wasn’t as much interaction between the group as a whole, but there were in essence 3 groups each I’m sure. In my group, it was mainly Chairman, Sauce and me… I got a “Fuck You Rump” out of both of them, which I’m considering a win! I wasn’t sure if we would get done with two rounds and have time left or not. It looks like not. I think this would be more fun with a larger group and maybe add some running.

Dual QOTY for Retail Therapy

Hey Dirtbag hold my beer real quick…

Special Sauce Trash Panda Stingray Stingray Meatball Slushii Rump Roast Draper sound machine DFib Jobu Sex Panther Bleep Phelps (Tim) Noah “Don’t Call me Baby Shark” Phelps, Shifty McCoy, and Sally joined AlrightAlright and YHC for the first ever Dual QOTY beatdown

Warmup:
SSH, ISTs, Veggie Pickers

The Thang (alternating Q’s with every other song)
AlrightAlright took us up to rock out with our Camp Gladiator friends to flex our muscles and intimidate them with our EDM beats

Then I ran us to one of the parking decks and stopped us on an incline for some Mary to work on the lower core

AlrightAlright made us do some spider man push ups and and mountain climbers…Draper and other PAX showed some genuine concern about “just” holding a plank for a bit and were disappointed that planking was the exercise we were doing

OG Icebox Alert!
Listening to Baby Shark, SSH with burpees every time they said “Shark” (basically two minutes of burpees)

AlrightAlright ran us up to the top of the parking deck and had us doing bear crawl suicides

Because YHC is a sadist we followed that up with a few minutes of Arms by Mrs Icebox

AlrightAlright wasn’t done bear crawling so we had to bear crawl down a flight of stairs and followed that up with some irkins

YHC then went for a mosey to a different parking deck and was disappointed in the lack of hustle by the PAX so started to burpee, even more confusion by the PAX as I’ve never instituted the burpee rule during a Q which led to 21 burpees once the 6 was in (would’ve been 40 if AlrightAlright had been doing the burpees)

AlrightAlright took a page of of the DJ Icebox instruction manual and had us mosey to a big stairwell for Mony Mony dips (listening to Billy Idol’s Mony Mony, hold a back plank and do a dip every time they say “Mony”)…Jobu asked how many that was and I promised I’d do a real OG workout where I count out the number of reps for each song

AlrightAlright then took us back where we started to roll around and do merkins on ant hills (clearly his tolerance for ant bites is greater than his disdain for doing core exercises on concrete)

Someone must have said something because AlrightAlright used some words my playlist wasn’t allowed to use and made us run around Starbucks, taunting us with what we could be doing instead of working out

YHC then rocked out with 4 more minutes of Mary on the ant hills since we were already contaminated

Shield Lock groups are there to increase accountability and discuss real issues that we face as men. YHC has formed a Shield Lock with F150, Phelps and DFib and will report progress as we develop deeper relationships and get into meatier issues (

MOLESKIN:

AA’s Slaughter Starter was not a crowd favorite as YHC asked him to take over the warm up so I could quickly grab my weight vest after being shame goaded into it by Slippy & AA.  Slippy wowed the crowd by announcing he was wearing 50lbs in his vest to start the workout, however I think he quickly reassessed once we started the workout.  Mumblechatter was varied throughout.  Rump Roast accused YHC of not knowing what he was doing during the “mucho” exercises, but as I recall I was spent at this point.

MOLESKIN:
Good time today. Thanks to all the PAX for showing out and welcoming YHC back to Q’ing.

H/t to Jobu for bringing the Chicken Alfredo, all PAX carb-loaded up 5 minutes before kickoff. This gave many of the PAX incredible energy and strength. Supermen out there. And only one chunder.. YHC will let you guess who.

Trash Panda was unfortunately a couple minutes late, incurring 20 penalty burpees. Meanwhile, the rest of the PAX did flutter kicks. This brought loads of mumblechatter.

Rump Roast brought an upbeat positive attitude today, even thanking the Q for pushing his limits instead of cursing him. A shocking change of heart.. will it last?!

Silent Bob was happy to “see the other side of the park.” Not necessary to get a good workout to leave the immediate AO, but definitely can be a good change of pace :).

Rain mostly held off. Prayed to get better and use our gifts for good.

Everyone stayed after for some 2nd F. The glue, baby!

Happy Friday.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Rump Roast prayed us out with a few specific prayer request this morning and thankful to be in the gloom with our brothers. 

MOLESKIN:
Agnes had the bright idea to Quad Q a #westside workout. Yesterday we started planning on what to do and when. Normally the rain would have been an easy excuse for some of our fartsackers but they prevailed. Tclaps to Phelps and Classified on the continuation of the quest for the perfect month! We had a willy loman from F3 Naperville join us this morning. Waterfall was thankful to not have to wear a mask and still be alive! DFib was able to beat the fartsack and join us during his second busiest week of the year, thanks DFib! Trash Panda was thrilled to jump right into the mud. 

Rump Roast thought it would be fun to immediately mosey to the field and get right to a Ring Of Fire with T Merkins and Hand Release Merkins. Lots of mumblechatter around being wet and dirty right off the start. 

Once we got to the fountain during Bleep’s 10min many of the PAX washed off their muddy hands before heading back to the park for YHC to take over. 

YHC put everyone back on the grass for 10min of non stop core work. 

Agnes led the PAX to the tennis courts for a lunge leg destroyer!

While I may never be an Army Ranger… I AM one meat slingin’ son of a beep test! 11 men joined me this morning to explore the AO, Shops at Park Lane. The parking was nice and easy at 0524; we all meet up in front of the Starbucks. F150 waits to tell me last night at 930pm that his CG insider advised him they could be back on the property… Good news right, then he tells me they HAD to get permission. So I’m a little freaked we may get the boot. The warm-up was just long enough for the security guard to get bored watching us and for Alright Alright to start moanin’ and groanin’ about us staying in one place for our entire 1st workout. Also, some friendly debate about YHC’s arms not hurting because I didn’t do the Murph yesterday. to which I replied that it was voluntary and I didn’t want to do it. I stand my ground, I’m grown and don’t have to do it!

We then moseyed down to the stairs for an elevated learning session. I’ll be working on the Beef 101 class throughout the summer to get it just right.  We started with B.O.M.B.S which for time, I Omaha’d into BOMB. It quickly drew a few mean mugs and side-eyes, along with some mumbles which I took as a good sign. At the top of the stairs, you could see the CG crew in the Whole Paycheck parking lot. Noticing we were getting short on time I called it, as I was realizing bombs took way too long. I skipped Elevens altogether and sort of combined them it Elevated Lazy Dora. Also drawing moans and groans from the crowd. Again we cut it a little short to head back for “Free time”… I had a planned surprise but the drone pilot I found out later fell asleep. Before I could call the exercises some of the crew decide to just sit down and chill. AA was keen enough to point it out so we all did 10x burpees. I got lots of feedback that this was a good one and I know I was smoked. I expect to see each and every one of you men/leaders take some time to Q at this new spot! There are tons of places to see

Back at the launch, we used some benches to pull off a quick Dirty McDuce knock-off, some Mary, and called it a day 

Announcements:

THA THANG:
YHC had a plan, and it just spiraled out of control once Trash Panda showed up 3 minutes late, to which all PAX paid 3 penalty burpees.

Mosey over to the parking lot behind Lake Highland HS

Jacob’s Ladder (mistakenly called Dora by YHC) 5 burpees, 1 double count lunges … running across the parking lot

Took a page out of Trash Panda’s book and ordered an Indian Run from the parking lot to the trail behind Lake Highlands, all PAX finished strong and kept moving (shout out to Phelps)! 

Moseyed over to the Tennis Courts for an actual Dora: 2 teams of 2 PAX and 1 team of 3 PAX completed 100 squats, 200 merkins and 300 LBCs (150, 300 and 450 for the team of 3) running all 4 tennis courts. 

Had some time left so had to hit YHC’s favorite and bear crawl 2 tennis courts … crawl bear back. 

Moseyed back and finished with some quick Mary

MARY:

Heels to Heaven – OYO until time

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Name-o-rama and YHC prayed us out and thanked god for continue to push us all to keep getting better and stronger each day as well as asking the Lord to bring us together as one nation no matter our differences and continue to cherish our existence here.

MOLESKIN:
Not much mumblechatter throughout the workout, but at first it was a like head shaking at YHC failure to figure out how to do a workout with odd numbers … YHC folded under pressure and just went truly live with it. YHC truly forgets how long of a run that Indian Run can be.  Some mumblechatter was had on the Tennis Courts as Jobu was flying around like a mad man. After the workout Slushii informed YHC that the PAX ran 3 miles … how about that for a Westside led workout? 

Also, Slushii wore his chin condoms.

MOLESKIN:
YHC was very torn on what to do for his first SCT posting and Q, and after some discussion with other PAX, YHC decided to go back to the TID crowd pleaser of a parking deck suicide with some bear crawling (which was promised in the preblast, not beers. Reading is tough eh Special Sauce?)

The PAX enjoyed the spelling of the warmup exercises, but did not enjoy the next phase. Several PAX jokingly asked if we were doing the TID suicide again and when YHC informed them that yes, we were, quite a few four letter words similar to the word spelled by the warmups were uttered. It’s always a crowd pleaser. YHC even got an “EAD” from Rump, which YHC thinks is at the top of the Rump scale, above the F bombs.

The bear crawling was also a crowd pleaser, but everyone finished in time to mosey back to the park. We took the poop stairs back which led several jokes of bear crawling, crawl bearing, crab walking, and walk crabbing those stairs, so now YHC has ideas for his next 2CT Q.

Some good 2ndF after the beatdown as Slippy humble bragged about being an Hawaii expert and gave YHC his recommendations. Some Band discussion about the length of running during the workout, with some apps showing about 1.5 and Alright Alright’s showing over 3. We agreed it was closer to 1.5

THA THANG:
Mosey to the George W. Bush Presidential Center (GWBPC) from Burleson Park. There, in the parking lot, we began the first of many 43 Strategery workouts. 

The PAX was instructed to do to following:

3 Rounds: 43 Squats > Run 43yds > 43 American Hammers, repeat…

3 Rounds: 43 Lunges (Double Count) > Run 43 yds > 43 LBCs,  repeat…

3 Rounds: 43 Good Mornings > Run 43 yds > 43 Mountain Climbers

We made it through 1 round of the last group of exercises before moseying back to Burleson for Mary.

MARY:
Circled up and went around doing 43 reps (single count oyo) of everyone’s exercise choice. YHC began with Freddie Mercury’s, followed by Agnes’ Penguin  Crunches, followed by Lifeboat’s Bear Crawls twice in a circle, followed by Slippy’s Frog Crunches, followed by  Lil Smokie’s Supermans, followed by, last but not least, Classified’s JLo’s.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC prayed us out, giving particular thanks to the men of F3, our community and the freedoms we enjoy in this country.

MOLESKIN:
YHC dressed up for the occasion, in my best early 2000s presidential running gear. The plan was to do the workout in the GWBPC field, but multiple security guards, all of which were packing heat, deterred us. During the workout, GWBPC employees kept driving around the parking lot, backing into parking spots etc. I particularly appreciated the person driving a blacked out late 90s model Lincoln Town Car. Such a great automobile!

As always, I am nervous to Q and always feel that my workouts aren’t that great. I felt much more confident when Agnes looked over mid-workout to drop an “FU Gold Digger” in Rump’s voice. Arguably one of my favorite things in life is hearing Rump getting pissed at everything around him, even when he’s not physically present. Thanks Agnes. I am particularly proud of Lil Smokie for crawling out of the fart sack to post. Keep it up Braaa. Lifeboat left to go back to ATL. Come back soon! Silent Bob was silent, Slippy was stealthy,  Classified was sweaty Slushii’s calves were, well… sexy.
