Pax: 14 GlenRoss (Q), Abacus, Fall Guy (RR), Diablo, Plethora, Nugget, Scratch, OJ, Double Down (R), Goodman, Little Jerry (R), Peach, Butcher, Wham!
Conditions: Cloudy, 40; feels like 38 (sadly it was warmer last time I Q’d in January at the O)
I signed up to Q the BoW over three weeks ago with three things in mind.
1) Being April 10, this God aweful winter will be over
2) I was posting down at another AO on spring break and was excited to bring back some new exercises to the Pax
3) There is also a cheap discount beach wear store that sells $5 Tanks, so I was going to grab a few and bring it out today.
Unfortunately, the weather is sill aweful, I fartsacked twice and the only time I went out was for a mistaken workout that was actually a one and half hour ruck training/ beatdown. Shoulder was sore so skipped the other 2 days to go rucking with my M on the beach. Lastly, the beach house was ravaged by stomach bug so we got the hell out of there 1 day early and forgot to get my $5 tanks.
So instead of doing something different I did a lot of the same things from my W/O 2 weeks ago at The Rooster.
Disclaimer was given and we moseyed for quick warm up at the tennis courts.
10 SSH (IC)/ 10 Imperial Walker (IC) 5 BOYOs and off for a quick Prisoner Indian Run through the neighborhood
First stop- 5 BOYOs, continue with Prisoner Indian Run, next stop 10 Prioner Jump Squats- we did this at 2 more stops until we re-entered the park. Total run was 1/2 mile, but the Prisoner run is a heck a workout- thanks Old Bay
Next everyone grab a spot on the walls over by the restrooms. One of favorite spots about the O and I always work something in over here. Quick stop for some Barbara Walters: Dips/ Derkins
Partner up for coupon work. Partner 1 starts with Curls, Partner 2 runs to cone/ light for 10 squats. Repeat until the group gets to 200. After we finished Curls, we switched to back presses. Same thing- but switched to 10 Lunges. Stop at 200 presses.
We did another set of each- lowered curls and presses to 150 and then one more of the curls up to 100. 10 minutes left we put up the coupons for some Mary
Found a nice, grassy area near volleyball court- also known as dog shit field. It didn’t matter, my ass is tired of doing Mary on the concrete. Did the following:
20 LBCs (IC), 20 Gas Pumps (IC), 20 American Hammers (IC) 20 Fred Mercs (IC). Repeated this for one more full set.
still had 3 minutes left so we did another set but cut it to 15 (IC). Got all of them in except for Fred Mercs.
Finished w/o and back to the Flag.
Lots of intentions today- all of which are also on Slack. But worth mentioning is VQ week next week. Good to hear the O is filled up for both days- let’s make sure we have big numbers all next week to support these guys.
Intentions: moment of silence for all intentions.
And ended with prayer for all the HIMs today. As men we all struggle and carry a lot of stress, anxiety and tremendous pressure. I wasn’t feeling it all yesterday or this morning. Saw a tweet from The O earlier this morning and it got me pumped up to be with you guys today. Thank you for letting me lead. I needed it today
