Perfect morning for a beatdown

14 Highlanders met in the gloom for a perfect morning to suffer together.


  • Mosey towards bus lot
  • High Knees
  • Butt kickers
  • Imperial Walkers
  • Stoli Skips

Circle up:

  • SSH x 15
  • IST x 15
  • Windmill x 10
  • Merkins x 10
  • Mtn Climbers x 10
  • Apollo Ohno x 10

Mosey back to Middle School parking lots

  • Bear crawl halfway, crab walk the remainder (first mumblechatter starts)
  • Next length: lunge walk halfway, inchworm merkins the remainder (audible… that sucked.  karaoke to the end)… Significant mumblechatter achieved
  • Last length: broad jump halfway, karaoke the remainder

Mosey to the wall for some Peoples’ chair and Hip Slappers (REPEATO)

Head to the track, jump the fence and partner up

  • Partner A jogs at 50% speed
  • Partner B cranks out 10 merkins and chases down Partner A
  • Once B reaches A, switch roles… make it all the way around the track
  • REPEATO with 10 squats on Round 2
  • REPEATO with 5 merkins on Round 3

Hop back over the fence… no wait!  Bootstrap discovers that the gate is open… YHC’s fault

Bleacher work: 10 derkins, 10 dips (REPEATO)

Mosey back to the ES lot for MARY

  • W x 15
  • Reverse Crunch x 10
  • Pretzel Crunch x 10 (each side)


Smoked moleskin:

  1. I mentioned that I hadn’t had the Q in a while and I certainly felt it… had to shake off the rust a bit.  I believe it was Bootstrap who said “you must have been planning this mess for months..” nope, just since 10pm last night.
  2. Some mumble chatter about the bear crawls and crab walks “If this is your idea of fun, I wonder what you do on the weekends”  Not sure who to credit for that gem, but it was priceless.
  3. Great weather, love the feeling of Fall and less humidity… still broke a nice sweat, though
  4. Always great to see our runner friends on the track.  Such a friendly bunch…

    Thanks for the opportunity to lead you all today men. Great effort out there and welcome to our FNGs. Keep coming back, as we always say “the workouts don’t get easier, but you do get stronger”.

      @ Shazam – Great beatdown today. Good to have you out there again with the Q. I know I am in trouble anytime we do something to mimic an animal or an insect and today you did three of them. Brutal.

  2. Bootstrap

    @Shazam great lead! Always brutal when you have been absent for a couple weeks like myself.

    Someone needs to humble the angry runners on the track. They do know they are outnumbered and outweighed right?!?! Just sayin…chill out bro…how bout you share the track with us
