I loved the Farside comics. Especially the ones about Hell. Today at the Mutt, two of my favorite Larson gems totally sum up how my Q went. But first, the formalities.
PAX: (20) Tiger, Nugget, Glen Ross, Seabass, Long Snap, Backdraft, Plumb Bob, Old Bay, Sump Pump, Meatball, Left Eye, Tom Bodet, Windshield, Tommy Boy, Flounder, Digiorno, Tureen, Soft Top, No Show, Geppetto QIC
Weather: 27* but felt warmer once we got moving.
Gear: Winter stuff. Ready to put this shit away and get out some tanks!
7:00-Introduced myself to the pax. No FNGs. Moseyed around the school.
Arm circles (little/big, forward/back)
Abe Vigodas IC x 12
Grass Grabbers IC x 12
Downward Dog/Cobra stretch/Runners stretch
SSH IC x 30
Another lap around the school.
Circle up for several rounds of Webbs. Mixed in some dumbbells and kettle bells to make it a little more interesting. As often happens at the Mutt, especially the Hurt, the mumblechatter was strong. Which leads me to my first cartoon. As much as I was trying to punish the pax, the gossip, giggling, and ball busting was at times overwhelming. As quoted by Flounder “Make your Q harder, so I won’t be able to talk.” Ok. Fair enough, let’s see what I can dish out.
Thang 1: Jack Webb with random weights
Circled up. With 20 Pax we set ten random weights in front of every other man. Weights were (2×20#, 2×25#, 2×30#, and 4×35#) Jack Webb 1:4 up to 10:40 Merkin to overhead press using the weight in front of you. Then pass that weight to the right and next set. By the time we made it up to 10:40 fair to say we were all smoked.
Lap around the school to catch our breath.
Thang 2: Captain Thor with random weights
Same as above but doing big boys and American Hammers with the random weights.
Thang 3: Round 2 of Jack Webb descending count
10:40 down to 1:4 alternating weights.
Thang 4: Lt. Dans
1:4 up to 10:40 squats/jump lunges
By now pretty sure most of the pax, and most definitely YHC could relate to this one.
Thanks for all the pax that came out. I actually love the mumblechatter. It’s a big part of what makes this group special. Until next time.
