Preblast- The Tank at Vets, 3/18/20

Tomorrow is my 20th wedding anniversary, so we’re going to kick it with some tunes from the year 2000 and do 20 different exercises: After COP, we’ll do a short, staggered mosey, then settle in for some tabata- a minute and a half each of burpees, copperhead squats, merkins, flutter kicks, SSHs, front lunges, T-Merkins,Continue reading “Preblast- The Tank at Vets, 3/18/20”

Preblast- The Cliffs at the Garden, Grinder Q

What better way to make my first visit to the Garden than by leading? I’m relying on intel from trusted sources that have told me the terrain is very flat and that most attendees will probably want a light easy workout, so that’s what I have planned. You should probably leave your running shoes andContinue reading “Preblast- The Cliffs at the Garden, Grinder Q”

Preblast- Blender at Le Mutt, 2/12, Grinder Q

You will stay dry tomorrow. Chances of rain at WO time are slim, and there’s always the portico if that changes. I promise I’ve planned much better for this Heavy than my last, so we should be able to get started by 5:37. I hope Glen Ross is in a good mood tomorrow, because heContinue reading “Preblast- Blender at Le Mutt, 2/12, Grinder Q”

Backblast- 2/4 Loco at the County

Great group of guys and a Crock Pot is one heck of a Site Q. I kept it simple and tried to do a WO that would allow everyone to push themselves regardlessContinue reading “Backblast- 2/4 Loco at the County”

Preblast- Loco at the County, 2/4/20, Grinder Q

It’s been over eight months since I’ve posted at the County. That’s terrible. But, to distract from my shameful support for my County boys, I think we’ll focus on some other numbers instead. Seven and eleven would probably be a good place to start. We’ll run a lot (sprints, not distance), crawl a lot andContinue reading “Preblast- Loco at the County, 2/4/20, Grinder Q”

Preblast- Wisteria at Pleasantville- Grinder Q 1/3/20

Glen Ross and I used to joke that it always rains in Pleasantville. When we first started out there, it seemed like it rained, without fail, every Friday morning. It’s only fitting then that there’s a 90% chance of rain for my return to the streets of gold. As Old Bay says, you only getContinue reading “Preblast- Wisteria at Pleasantville- Grinder Q 1/3/20”

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.

Pre-blast 7/31 -Blender at the Mutt, 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”

BO – 6/19 at the O…That’s what friends are for.

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.
