BLIMPS descend on #GideonsHouse

  • Workout Date - 08/03/2016
  • Q In Charge - Floppy Disc
  • The PAX - Inspector Gadget (respect!), Double Windsor (respect!), Juggernaut, Quickie, Whoopee, Caviar, ACA, Bondo, ⚽️Mom, PETA, Floppy Disc(YHC)
  • AO -

So YHC offered to Q last week at #GideonsHouse as part of my summer tour/change it up a bit/bring something new to the yard.  Unfortunately, YHC had a #TechnologyFail  and completely #Fartsacked.  So after acknowledging my #QFail, YHC was offered this week’s Q, on the contingency of a 50 Burpee #Apology. Not one to shirk responsibility, the #ShovelFlag was planted, #50Burpees were paid, and it was time to roll. Good to see @Juggernaut come and visit up from #TheWood. Always good to have Pax from another region. We waited on @InspectorGadget and @Caviar as they rolled in hot on 2 wheels.

For some reason the #Mission and #Disclaimer seemed to take quite a while. Thoughts on that @Caviar?

78 degrees, and more humidity than any of us want or need, so let’s get it started!


  • 20 SSH IC
  • 16 IW IC
  • 22 Merkins to honor #22Kills – the average of 22 vets that take their lives each day, and how we need to support our friends and neighbors who have served

Now that we are all warmed up, there’s a lot to do, so let’s mosey!

The Thang – BLIMPS Factory

Welcome to the #BLIMPSFactory. Partner up, size doesn’t matter, and instructions are as follows:

P1 to run the loop, and flapjack with P2 when they arrrive back to the #FactoryFloor. Partners rinse and repeat until all 10 BLIMPS are complete:

  • 50 Burpees
  • 100 Lunges (Dbl Count)
  • 150 Imperial Walkers (Both knees)
  • 200 Merkins
  • 250 Plankjacks
  • 300 Squats

Mosey back to the flags, and circle up for:


Bodies On the Floor: As Bodies by Drowning Pool is played, all PAX assume the plank position.  As you hear “Let The Bodies Hit the Floor”, do a donkey kick. As you hear them count 1, 2, 3, 4, do a merkin for each count.  3:26 song, 26 donkey kicks, 21 Merkins, assorted planks during the song.


  • @Juggernaut needs some help with the @F3Houston launch.  Needs Pax to sign up to go to give this away.  If you can go, this would be an amazing experience. #GiveItAway
  • Pray for @Quickie’s sister – going through some struggles with breast cancer.  Also for @Quickie as he awaits results from a follow up MRI after having headaches last year
  • Pray for @Bondo’s sister as she has finished an addiction recovery program, but may be struggling to maintain.  Praise as well for @Bondo as he transitions from #Gideon’s House after finishing their program this past 12 months


  • 50 Burpees before you start – leaves a mark about halfway through.  #Don’tFartsackTheQ
  • Strong work by @DoubleWindsor and @InspectorGadget at the factory, #SmokingAllThePax there
  • Heard some #Mumblechatter about the song choice for Mary perhaps inciting youth to violence. Might have started that amongst the #Pax as well around a minute into the song
  • The #2ndF #Coffeeteria at #Gideon’sHouse is always worth sticking around for.  It’s the glue that makes this more than just a workout.  Make the trip over if you can.

I wouldn’t do this alone gents, so thanks for the chance to lead.
