Great crew this morning at Pleasantville: Skirmish(R), Sandtrap(R), Milton, Grizzly, Old Bay, Geppetto, Big Bird, Plumb Bob, Grinder (Q) We started in the usual way, with some COP, but after leading us in SSHs, I had the other PAX lead the group in Abe Vigodas, Merkins, Grass Grabbers and Copperhead Squats. I finished us upContinue reading “Backblast 8/9 Pleasantville Q School”
I’m ready to make back to school fun for all those ready to join me at Pleasantville in the Gloom. Expect to learn a little and participate a lot…especially if you have little to no experience Qing. We may be on the grass a little (amphitheater stairs), we will run (in spurts) and I recommendContinue reading “Preblast- 8/9 Grinder Q School – Wisteria at Pleasantville”
PAX: Cowbell, Sump Pump, Deuce, Buschhhhhh, Fridge, PED, Rhi Rhi, Glen Ross, Zima, Fergie, Porkchop, Tureen, Snowman, Plumb Bob, Pope, No Show (FNG), Grinder Q Due to time constraints, I’m going to exhibit as much creativity on this BB as I did to the workout. No re-inventing the wheel here: Mosey around the school, COP:Continue reading “Backblast- Blender at the Mutt, 7/31, Grinder Q”
I keep hearing about all these new faces at the County and the O. I’d love to see some of those at the Mutt tomorrow. For every PAX making their first post at the Mutt tomorrow, ol’ Grinder will give you one burpee…perfect form, of course. Let’s see how many we can add up. Also,Continue reading “Pre-blast 7/31 -Blender at the Mutt, Grinder Q”
I didn’t say it at COT, but I was absolutely humbled by the crowd at the O yesterday morning. I know it had very little to do with me, but regardless, it was cool. I had planned a workout expecting 8-12 guys and instead ended up leading 22 PAX: Jeter, Jitterbug(R), Zartan, Face(vested), Dorothy, Pixar,Continue reading “BB – 7/23 Bag of Wrenches”
My apologies to those that attended for the delay in getting this out. PAX: Blueprint, Tiger, Geppetto, Plumb Bob, Sump Pump, Cowbell, Mouth, Glen Ross, Deuce, Noxeema Jackson, Wham-O, Grinder (Q) We started with a lap around the school and a standard COP warm-up. Next, we headed down Brookfield for a Scout Run with theContinue reading “BB – 7/16 Rooster at the Mutt”

Looks like things may be a little soupy at the Mutt in the morning. Stop by so ol’ Grinder can give you a HIGH FIVE. SYITG
PAX: Skirmish, Speed-bump, Viking, Scratch N Dent, Old Bay, Grinder Q Great crew at Pleasantville this week and great to meet Skirmish for the first time. Our focus was on slow, full range, full body exercises with explosive movements and some hill sprints mixed in for good measure. After a short mosey and warm up,Continue reading “BB – 7/12 Wisteria at Pleasantville, Grinder Q, It happened.”
That’s right. A second Grinder Q two weeks after the last one. If you were there for it, then you know how much fun we had. Come on out tomorrow and let’s have some more.
It was an absolutely beautiful morning in Pleasantville. We could have used a little more wind, but otherwise it was perfect. Gearlander- 5” (yup, 5”) inseam Patagonia Strider shorts, Hoka Cliftons, Features no-shows, 10-year-old Nike Dri-fit top and Junk headband. Crushed it. PAX – Speed bump, Sand trap, Fructose, Fridge, Viking, Uncle Rico, Grinder (Q)Continue reading “BB -6/28 Wisteria at Pleasantville”
You read it right. Grinder is back in the saddle after a short stint on IR. Come join me at Pleasantville ITG for what should be a beautiful morning. I may be a little slower than I was a month ago, but I promise I’ll keep us moving.
PAX: Plumb Bob, Snowman, Old Bay, Zartan, Grinder, Q (All) Looking at the Q calendar for this morning, there were lots of great options, none of which I felt I could do in my current condition. My current regimen includes showing up about a half hour before the workout to warm up and stretch, soContinue reading “BO – 6/19 at the O…That’s what friends are for.”
Thanks to Snowman and Glen Ross for joining me for a light, rehab BO at the O this morning. It was good to get some movement after nearly a month off. We took two slow laps around the oval, stopping for some PT along the way and finished with some Mary. Lots of great 2ndfContinue reading “6/10 BO at the O”
Always a good time at the County! PAX: Bulletin (R), Giselle, Cochran, Fungi, Cold Call, Crock Pot, Catfish, Pew Pew, Wildflower, Meter Maid, Abacus, Scratch n Dent, Jerry McGuire (R), Ladybird (R), Grinder (Q) As part of my disclaimer at the beginning, I should have noted that I stole this entire weinke from a workoutContinue reading “BB 5/14 The LOCO”
It was a great time at the Mutt this past Saturday with 17 PAX in attendance including five 2.0s, four of which were FNGs: Porkchop, Duplo, Cornbread, Zima, Deuce, Windshield, Pepperoni, Soft top, Tureen, Sump Pump, Miyagi, Beast Boy (2.0), Cutlet (2.0, FNG), Car Alarm (2.0, FNG), Spida (2.0, FNG), Air ball (2.0, FNG), GrinderContinue reading “BB – The Hurt at The Mutt 5/11”
Lots of oldies but goodies planned for tomorrow. Be ready to keep moving. SYITG
Have you been out of the gloom for a while? Keep reading. Have you been injured or put on some unwanted weight and you’re apprehensive about jumping back in? Keep reading. Have a 2.0 that’s not the most fit or athletic and you want to get him out to F3 so he gets excited aboutContinue reading “PB- 5/11 The Hurt at the Mutt (New Beginnings)”
After a day of relaxation with the family, it’s time to get back to the grind. Start your day with me and Abacus for a Beast-mode beatdown at North Posh. Everything else you do tomorrow will feel like a breeze after what we’ve got in store. SYITG
Thanks to Backdraft for letting me pick up the Q this past Wednesday at the Mutt. It’s always good to be back home and always a pleasure to lead. Here are the studs that came out to enjoy the morning with me: BUSCHHHHH, Backdraft, Sump Pump, Cowbell, Old Bay, Cornbread, Glen Ross, Tasty Freeze, Snowman,Continue reading “BB – 4/10 – The Blender at the Mutt”
If you’ve got anything left in the Tank after your 100-1-50-1, then come join me tomorrow morning at the Mutt. Bring your gloves and running shoes and be ready to rock. SYITG
Selfishly, Pleasantville is my favorite AO. And despite all the areas there are to explore there, my favorite spot has always been the path along the pond leading to the amphitheater. From this time of year through the early Fall, there’s just enough light through the second half of the workout to see the waterContinue reading “BB – 4/5 Wisteria @ Pleasantville, On Golden Pond”
Let’s get after it tomorrow. You V. You. If you were at S Posh on Monday, you got a preview. Bring your running shoes and a headlamp may come in handy for parts. SYITG
It was no beach, but it was really an ideal morning for a workout. Clear and crisp with little to no wind. After a little movement, we were warm as could be. Add a great group of HIMs, and it was about as fun a morning as it gets. PAX: Ladybird(R), Abacus, Ashley, sweetTART, Mr.Continue reading “BB – 4/1 Incubator at the Posh”
Does North have a monopoly on Beast Mode or Run Heavy? I think not. Come to South tomorrow and let’s get after it. It’ll be a cold one, but I promise you’ll be sweating before you know it.
This past Monday, I had the privilege of Qing The Incubator at South Posh. I had lined up a number of Qs at the local AOs back in January when the Double Down Challenge was proposed and this was the final one. Much to my surprise, I was informed the Saturday before that Double DownContinue reading “BB- 3/25 – Return of Double Down/ Embrace your 111”
Tomorrow we celebrate the return of one of our favorite brothers and relish in the importance of how much we need one another to get through all the hurdles of life. You’ll be relying on each other for most of the workout. Bring gloves and be ready for some partner fun.
Always a treat to hang with the County boys. The weather was great this morning (32 and clear) and there were 8 HIMs in attendance: Jerry McGuire (R), Sweater Vest, Scratch-N-Dent, Ashley, Bulletin (R), Abacus, Valdez, Grinder (Q). We started with a Scout Run around the school. Everyone got two turns at being the ScoutContinue reading “BB – 3/12/19 – LOCO at the County”
Grinder and Pew Pew pulled the old switcheroo. Now I’m Qing tomorrow and have no clue what we’ll do. Promise I’ll figure something out so the workout’s not a big pile of poo.
F3 challenges me to step outside my comfort zone and push myself harder than I’d ever do if I was working out alone. It’s a big reason I keep coming back and I’m sure a lot of you would say the same. There are a lot of mornings I start the workout not really wantingContinue reading “BB – 3/4/19 The Silo at North Posh”
