JAX PAX get their dwarf on

  • QIC: Drone
  • The PAX: Jumanji, Big Bird, OTC, LIFO

Five JAX PAX posted in the gloomidity for a dwarf-style beat down, courtesy of YHC on his VQ.

The Thang:

One of Gimli’s best lines in the Two Towers was, “I’m wasted on cross country!  We dwarves are natural sprinters – very dangerous over short distances.”  This AM the F3 dwarves had plenty of opportunity to prove their mettle over short distances with a Gimli-inspired squat and sprint-heavy workout.

First we moseyed around the AO perimeter with interspersed butt kicks, high knees, karaokes, and backward jogs to loosen up.  The COP was upgraded to The One Ring of Pain for this special occasion.


25 x Windmills

20 x Overhead Claps

20 x Big Arm Circles

20 x Lil’ Arm Circles

25 x SSH

20 x Mountain Climbers (single time)

20 x Mountain Climbers (double time)

20 x Monkey Humpers

25 x Tuck Crunches

20 x Imperial Squat Walkers

The real fun started with a Dora 1-2-3: Merkins, LBCs and squats while partner runs 50 yards out and back, flapjack until goal is reached.  LIFO and Big Bird took on Drone, OTC and Jumanji, who did a modified 150/300/450 count instead of the usual 100/200/300.  Shout out to Jumanji for lending a hand on the last 40 squats immediately after finishing his own.

Mosey to the pavilion for 11s, starting with 1 burpee/10 jump ups on picnic tables and ending with 10/1.  Much sweat was sacrificed to the pavement gods.

The pax were greatly disappointed that there wasn’t time for the modified Merkin ladder YHC had planned.  Next time…


Overheard from Jumanji: “Drone, you ever heard of a restrictor plate?  I’m getting you one.”

The five Faithful who posted today worked hard, sweated hard, and graduated from dwarf boot camp with flying colors and minimal mumblechatter.  General consensus was that YHC was out for revenge on OTC for Tuesday’s upper body beat down.  Didn’t quite achieve TBQ, but the pax would be wise to stretch their hammys throughout the day.  Thankful for a solid group of brothers and the opportunity to Q for the first, but definitely not the last time!


– Post up Saturday for a history lesson from Jumanji and Big Bird!

– Keep Big Bird’s dad and his family in  your TAP
