Sub freezing Q

  • Workout Date - 02/11/2016
  • Q In Charge - Floppy Disc
  • The PAX - Easy Bake, John Denver, Floppy Disc (YHC)
  • AO -

When YHC volunteered for the Q today, I thought there would be a good showing since Thursday is well attended. Sent out the pre-tweet to drum up some interest, and got together what I thought was a solid plan. I knew the low temps and wind might be a bit of a deterrent, but not this kind:

Two Pax ignored the 22 degrees and breezy weather, and joined YHC for their #DRP, so off we went.



  • 5 Burpees
  • 10 Lunges DC
  • 15 IW DC
  • 20 Merkins
  • 25 Plank Jacks
  • 30 Squats

Now that everyone is suitably warmed up, let’s mosey to the Garden of Tranquility for…

Thang 1 (Tabata Thursday)

All Pax pull up some bench for 3 rounds of each exercise, 40 seconds max effort, 20 seconds rest of the following:

  • Box Jumps
  • Mountain Climbers
  • Sidewinders – hold the end of the bench, start with feet in line with left shoulder, and then jump over to end with feet at right shoulder.

Now that the legs are nice and warm, let’s mosey on to the playground for:

Thang 2 (4 Corners)

Since we had a large group of 3, we stayed together for the following circuit, 3 rounds total:

  • Corner 1 – 5 pullups, 10 merkins
  • Corner 2 – 20 squats

Between corner 2 and 3, let’s crab walk down the 1st set of stairs, sprint to the next set, and Joe Hendrix Bear Crawl up the 2nd set of stairs

  • Corner 3 – 30 LBCs
  • Corner 4 – 30 dips, 1ish minutes of People’s Chair

Time’s almost up, so let’s complete the lap around the school back to the parking lot for:


Only 1 minute let, so flutters for 1 minute.


  • Prayers for John Denver’s mom – having an outpatient procedure today, quick recovery
  • Announcement – Convergence Downtown on Sat 2/13 Pre Debate – 0700 at Liberty Bridge Falls Park



The pax was a bit late in showing, but so was YHC, so glad it wasn’t a solo deal.  The #2ndF this AM was enjoyable, especially the astronomy lessons during People’s Chair, thanks for that @EasyBake. Definitely took my mind off the burning legs.

If the M wasn’t so averse to facial hair, I might have to grow out a #NaturalFaceWarmer like those sported by all of the pax except YHC this AM. #JustABitJealous
