Birthday Q

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 10/22/16
  • The PAX: Big Bird, Snuffy (Respect), OTC, Biiiiing, Feud, Farah and Farah (Double Respect), PUD

A few Jax Pax showed up for a pre-workout Ruck Walk. A field trip out the beach for another ruck training has been thrown out there so maybe something in the near future will ensue

8 guys braved this seasonably cool and balmy morning for YHC’s birthday Q. Weather conditions: a chilly 55 degrees (which means break out the sweatshirts for us Florida folk). YHC decided to mix things up this morning with a martial arts inspired (mostly Bruce Lee really) warm-up.


  • Enter the Dragon: squats with alternating punches x 20 IC
  • The Game of Death: deep squats with alternating front kicks x 20 IC
  • Fists of Fury: L foot Forward – jab, cross, jab, hook x 20 IC
  • Fists of Fury: R foot Forward – jab, cross, jab, hook x 20 IC
  • Riddick Bowe (has one of the meanest uppercuts around): alternating uppercuts x 20 IC
  • Jump Rope: imaginary jump rope x 20 IC (some were even seen doing double unders & crossovers)
  • Circle Burp: one round around the pax
