When Smuggler organized this Q combo, he must’ve known a lot of PAX were looking for that Saturday morning push. After some banter back and forth between the WEP Q’s and us Alcatraz Q’s, we were pleasantly surprised to see car after car after car roll into Runde Park this Saturday morning. The weather was warm and the PAX were primed with the early mumble chatter. With the typical “don’t hurt yourself and don’t sue if you do hurt yourself” disclaimer, we took a very abbreviated (10yd) mosey to the right side of the parking lot (a slight teaser for what was coming).
Jog to the other end of the lot and back then repeat.
Walking lunges 1/2 way down then high knees to the end. Same thing on the way back to the start.
Windmills & deadlifts to warm up the legs a little more then mosey to the top of “THE HILL”
PAX squat for 20sec then jog to the base of the hill followed by an all-out sprint back to the top of the hill and squat for the six.
Repeat for a 40sec squat hold then the jog down/sprint up and squat for the six.
Repeat for a 60sec squat hold then the jog down/sprint up and squat for the six.
Find some curb and 50 calf raises each leg.
Mosey to the field for a circle up.
This was when I think they really lost my mind…Lt. Dan’s (1 squat and 4 jumping lunges (2ea side counts as 4)) and we went to 8:32 before handing it off Tesh!!
With Tesh on Q, you just had a feeling this was going to get bad.
With the PAX in a very long plank:
10 Mountain Climbers
10 Peter Parkers
Various Tesh-approved CORE exercises
Mosey to the fence line:
Merkin-Turtle crawl (can’t explain…you had to be there)
Bear Crawl 50yds
More Tesh-approved CORE exercises
10 Bombjacks x 3 rounds
Mosey to the playground and split into 4 groups
Rotate through 5 pull-ups & 10 dips. For those waiting, hold the Al Gore pose.
Yet more Tesh-approved CORE exercises

Closed it out with 6min of Mary which couldn’t end fast enough.

I’m sure Smuggler will get a little verbal backlash on this but hey, it made us better and everyone crushed it.
