6.17.22 Back Blast: The Avenger @ The Patriot

I was ahead of schedule. I had all my stuff ready the night before. I woke up early and was out the door, sure that I had plenty of time for a nice easy drive out to LaGrange. As I walked outside, it was still hot but not like the prior days this week whereContinue reading “6.17.22 Back Blast: The Avenger @ The Patriot”

6.18.22 Pre Blast: The Ruiner @ The O-riginal – BigBird Q

So…not really…but it might be perceived. Mostly, just wanted to catch your attention. My wife’s been asking me what I want to do for Father’s Day and really, I’m pretty easily pleased. As long as I’m with my family I’m happy. But it did get me thinking. What’s something that I really like? I wasContinue reading “6.18.22 Pre Blast: The Ruiner @ The O-riginal – BigBird Q”

6.17.22 Pre Blast: The Defender @ The Patriot – BigBird Q

Been a little on the warm side lately. Tomorrow will offer much of the same as every other morning this week ITG. But never fear! There is some sweet relief on the horizon (if only for a couple days). But….you have to earn it! Come out tomorrow. Put some work in with me. And feelContinue reading “6.17.22 Pre Blast: The Defender @ The Patriot – BigBird Q”

6.9.22 Back Blast: Big Kapowski @ Bayside

Inspiration for this WO would come easy. This week I have been doing homework listening to REO Speedwagon, Styx & Loverboy on my ad free, 6 month free trial Apple Music membership in preparation for Saturday’s concert at Riverbend. At some point during reminiscing I remembered that I had the Q at Bayside. Bayside, beingContinue reading “6.9.22 Back Blast: Big Kapowski @ Bayside”

6.7.22 Back Blast – BO at Goshen

I had been to Goshen only once and it was on their opening Thursday. I’ve been meaning to get back but it seemed like I was always being pulled somewhere else on Thursdays. Now, as the quickest growing AO in the region following The Patriot, Tuesday is an option as well. When Tuesdays went fromContinue reading “6.7.22 Back Blast – BO at Goshen”

6.9.2022 Pre Blast: The Big Kapowski @ Bayside: BigBird Q

Zack: Heyyyy BigBird! Bird: Yo Zack! What it do?! Zack: Did you know that Loverboy, Styx and REO Speedwagon are coming to Riverbend this Saturday? Also I heard you have the Q at Bayside on Thursday! You should give them a blast from the past! Bird: That’s a totally rad idea Zack! Duuudes! If yourContinue reading “6.9.2022 Pre Blast: The Big Kapowski @ Bayside: BigBird Q”

5.26.22 Way Back Blast: The Agony @ The County

Golly! Almost two weeks and just now getting the back blast out is unacceptable…I will say that two months into a new job has made it difficult for me to make the time like I used to be able to do whilst being pretty much unemployed. And even though Jewel says it doesn’t need toContinue reading “5.26.22 Way Back Blast: The Agony @ The County”

6.7.22 Pre Blast: BO @ Goshen – BigBird Q

This is one of the mottos that I live by said by one of my favorite characters of all time.

Don’t get me wrong, we’ll still work hard butContinue reading “6.7.22 Pre Blast: BO @ Goshen – BigBird Q”

5.23.22 Back Blast: The Incubator @ Posh

Look at our boy Stick Up graduating from Site Q to 1st F Q! It’s always good to see men accelerating, injecting the region with fresh ideas and objectives. One of the last things he would do as outgoing site Q of the Incubator would be to fill up the calendar to make for aContinue reading “5.23.22 Back Blast: The Incubator @ Posh”

5.26.22 Pre Blast: The Agony @ The County – BigBird Q

Calling an audible here. Subprime has found himself feeling a little under the weather and asked me to step in. So for those expecting a Subprime type of workout, never fear. He has shared his wienke with me and it promises some moseying, partner work with coupons and some sprints. We’re going to turn aContinue reading “5.26.22 Pre Blast: The Agony @ The County – BigBird Q”

5.16.22 Back Blast: The Motivator @ The Abyss

At one time or another hopefully we were all motivated to get out to the Abyss. It really is a fantastic site. You have a playground for pullups, a basketball court for guys like Pelican to tell you how awful you are at basketball, a portico to keep you dry, benches for dips and finally,Continue reading “5.16.22 Back Blast: The Motivator @ The Abyss”

5.23.22 Pre Blast – The Incubator @ Posh: BigBird Q

I had so much Fun at this Guy’s workout last week that I thought I’d play it back and roll it out for the Poshies.

PleaseContinue reading “5.23.22 Pre Blast – The Incubator @ Posh: BigBird Q”

5.10.22 Back Blast: The Loco @ The County

5/3, and after an Asian Zing (R) birthday celebration under the portico due to the wet conditions Hush Puppy accidentally on purpose forgot to grab the shovel flag. Since I was the last one to roll out I grabbed it with the intention to post at The County the following Tuesday to return it. AContinue reading “5.10.22 Back Blast: The Loco @ The County”

5.10.22 Pre Blast: The Loco @ The County – BigBird Q

Man!! Today has been unbelievable! Quite possibly the most beautiful day of the year! Tomorrow looks to bless us with much of the same.

Come out with me tomorrow ITGContinue reading “5.10.22 Pre Blast: The Loco @ The County – BigBird Q”

Back Blast: 2022 Pull Up Challenge

12…1,281…40,953 Nope. They’re not coordinates that will take you to a buried treasure. It’s not any kind of new mathematical equation that will earn you the Nobel prize. These numbers are far better than that. 12 is the number of dudes that reached at least 2022 pull-ups from January 1st – March 31st. 1,281 isContinue reading “Back Blast: 2022 Pull Up Challenge”

3.31.22 Back Blast: The Moonshiner @ The Boondocks

Was really looking forward to this one. I found myself in a fortunate position where I could put the cherry on top of a couple of conquests. The pull-up challenge that started January 1st along with the Iron Horse challenge that would go all of the way through the end of this day, March 31st.Continue reading “3.31.22 Back Blast: The Moonshiner @ The Boondocks”

3.21.22 Back Blast: The Motivator @ The Abyss

How time it does fly…Since the beginning of the year I’ve only been to The Abyss a few times and hadn’t Q’d at all. About 6 weeks ago Harbaugh was looking to fill up the calendar so I decided to have him sign me up for this one so I could check it off myContinue reading “3.21.22 Back Blast: The Motivator @ The Abyss”

3.22.22 Pre Blast: The Tank @ Vets – BigBird Q

I’m every job that must be done there is an element of fun. Just like Mary Poppins coming in with the East wind, your Bird will be swooping in to give you a spoonful of a beatdown that will be the medicine to help you be better equipped to take on your hump day. NoContinue reading “3.22.22 Pre Blast: The Tank @ Vets – BigBird Q”

3.20.22: The Motivator @ The Abyss – BigBird Q

Usually making a left hand turn is synonymous with something bad or having made a turn for the worse. Tomorrow ITG left hand turns will be a good thing as the hard work we produce will prepare us to dominate our Monday, setting the tone for the rest of the week. So get up, turnContinue reading “3.20.22: The Motivator @ The Abyss – BigBird Q”

3.18.22 Back Blast: The Baptizer @ El Jardín

This was my first time getting the nod at Friday’s Baptizer workout. The Garden Goons know how to bring it so I wanted to make sure I put together a wienke stiff enough to meet their expectations. This would also be the day after St. Patty’s day and round 1 of the NCAA Tourney soContinue reading “3.18.22 Back Blast: The Baptizer @ El Jardín”

3.18.22 Pre Blast: The Baptizer @ The Garden – BigBird Q

1,609 meters…1,760 yards…5,280 feet…No matter how you spin it, it’s all equivalent to a mile. You might run it in 6:30 or 8:20 or 10:45. But on this day it will take us a lot longer than that. This will be the longest mile you will have run and at 0615 the Grim Reaper willContinue reading “3.18.22 Pre Blast: The Baptizer @ The Garden – BigBird Q”

3.5.21 Back Blast: The Hurt @ The Mutt

Friday afternoon, 3.4, I ask Frosty if there is a pre Hurt ruck. His response a short, sweet and to the point, “0600.” He would later say that it was likely going to be just the two of us. All good with me. I was immediately looking forward to some one on one, quality FrostyContinue reading “3.5.21 Back Blast: The Hurt @ The Mutt”

3.5.22 Pre Blast: The Hurt @ The Mutt – BigBird Q

Come out to The Mutt tomorrow ITG and we’ll be sure to say hey to Carl at least 11 times! We won’t be needing the cache of coupins but definitely bring your running shoes. Your Bird will do his best to work over all of your muscle groups and make your decision to come outContinue reading “3.5.22 Pre Blast: The Hurt @ The Mutt – BigBird Q”

3.1.22 Pre Blast: The Max @ Bayside – BigBird Q

About a month ago I made sure to secure a spot out at Bayside before they were all gobbled up by IHC participants. Not too long after that Site Q extraordinaire Slide Rule educated me on the fact that March is Women’s History Month and since the Q would be the first day of MarchContinue reading “3.1.22 Pre Blast: The Max @ Bayside – BigBird Q”
