A Steaming Mug of TLQ to Start the Morning

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 2/2/17
  • QIC: Drone
  • The PAX: Synapse, Snuffy (respect), Big Bird, Jumanji (tribute), Eileen, LIFO, Disco (welcome back!), Heisenberg, Toxic (double respect), PUD, Pyro, Bing

A baker’s dozen pax posted under the library parking lot lights for the Thursday edition of the Jax Pax Freak Show.

Today’s objective: Total Leg Quiver

Conditions: Low 50s perfection with a dash of north Florida humidity.

  • Slaughter Starter – 10 Burpees OYO
  • 20 x Toy soldiers (IC)
  • 15 x Don Quixote (IC)

The Thang

Merkin Indian Run – two laps around front of library and field loop, last pax drops for 10 Merkins, then sprints to the front
Aiken Legs: (back to back with no rest)
  • 20 x Squats (IC)
  • 20 x Table jumps (OYO, Air Chair for the six)
  • 20 Lunges (IC)
  • 20 Iron Mikes (IC) (#crowdpleaser), done the Jax Pax way with four full jump lunges per 4-count
Rinse and repeat
Mosey to racquetball court
  • 25 x People’s Chair w/ overhead press
  • Ascending Testicles – 10 Derkins @ 15 degrees, 10 @ 45, then attempt 10 more @ BTTW
  • 25 x Ballerinas (toe squats)
  • Duck walk around court
  • 10 x Merkins (IC) (had to work in a little upper body)
  • 10 x Copperhead (Tempo) Merkins
Mosey to the cold wet field
  • Captain Therkin – Captain Thor with 5 Merkins between each set.  YHC missed Saturday’s backblast and thought this was Capt. Therkin’s big debut, but turns out Heisenberg beat me to it.
  • 30 x Flutter kicks
    • At this juncture, Toxic tried to pull his signature “clarify, distract, and delay” move by starting to describe a famous boxing match he had watched in the 1800s.  It has taken us a long time to wise up to Toxic’s tactics, but YHC managed to see through the deception this time and continue to our last exercise.
  • 20 x Rosalita

Mosey to the flag
