Sneaking a Peek ….Quadrant 1
Five MeCa Pax enjoyed a nice and cool morning at The MineShaft this AM and were treated to a advance showing of the Quadrant 1 beat down route for next Saturday’s premier CSAUP event – The Gremlin. We also learned that marijuana may already be legal when used in light rail overpasses in North Carolina !!! This was basically a People’s Q workout with YHC demoing the Quadrant 1 route to the Pax for a final dry run prior to next week.
Warm-Up / The Thang
Mosey to the Alumi Pavilion for some recon while Indy led the group thru SSH, Cotton Pickers, Plank variations and several yoga stretches as a warm-up. We discussed whether the pavilion would be big enough for the 100+ participants next week and decided that it would work so off we went to our next stop.
Mosey over to the baseball stadium for a Deuce led beatdown of 8’s – merkins at the bottom and squats at the top while running up the steps on ether side of the entrance.
Mosey over to the light rail overpass at JW Clay blvd for our next stop and were greeted by the strong smell of weed which seemed to be trapped in the overpass from some late nite or early morning party goers. We debated the health impacts of second hand smoke and proceeded cautiously for more squats and merkins – starting at the first stairway with 10 squats and over to the next stairway down to the road for 10 merkins and return to the starting point while stopping on the way back in the overpass walkway for 10 monkey humpers. We repeated this circuit 4x and all Pax reported they were hungry after experiencing the light rail overpass smells 🙂
Mosey up route 29 and return thru campus at the entrance across from old Kohls lot. Indy shared fond memories of prior El Dorado workouts beatdowns that traveled thru this same area. We stopped at the courtyard/quadrant area above the football stadium for 10 dips, 10 derkins, step jumps/bunny hops up the steps of 1 building and across over to the other side for lunge walks up the steps of that building. We repeated that circuit 4x and then tried a spiderman/merkin variation down the steps towards the football stadium which will likely be retired from future usage.
Mosey over to the outside corner of the football stadium facing towards start of Gremlin – Quadrant 2 route and some final recon to plan that muster point.
Start mosey back on the path to the pavilion and tennis courts while stopping multiple rounds of Jimmy Buffet led curls and overhead presses using the rocks under the overpass.
Mosey back thru the West Deck and to the launch parking lot for COT!
Thanks everyone for coming out this morning and traveling thru Quadrant 1!
