Substitute Q part 2

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 01/24/2019
  • The PAX: Heisenberg, Eileen (R), Updraft (R), Feud, Gekko


For the second day this week, the Q had a substitute as the original Q had to back out due to another engagement.

It was a dark and rainy morning, and YHC wasn’t sure who would show. Well, in the midst of the rain, I could see 5 PAX, and of course most waiting in their car until the last minute.

Since it was raining, YHC decided to see if we could stay dry, so we gathered under the pavilion.

There were introductions and the usual warnings, but an additional one as there could be lightening.

  • imperial walker 15 ic
  • toy soldier 15 ic
  • don quixote 15 ic
  • michael phelps 15 ic
  • merkin 10 ic
  • dips 15 ic
  • calf raises 15 ic

The Thang:

Dora 1,2,3 all under the pavilion.  Paired up – 1 partner exercised, the other went to other side and back.  The short distance meant multiple swaps and equal number of reps per partner.

2 – 200 squats / lunge walk

3 – BBSU / crab walk.

A train came, so 10 burpees.
