  • When: 01/31/2019
  • QIC: Eileen
  • The PAX: PUD, Synaps, Bouche, Seatdown, Heisenberg, Traf, Gecko, Fued, LiFo

10 PAX for a chilly, for us anyway, beatdown. 36F is cold for Florida – but we know in Naperville the “feels like” temp is below -34F. Holy Smokes, can’t even imagine!

No crusty PAX to salty up the air – so we had a good, clean workout on the frozen tundra!


Run around parking lot; Other Stuff


To the Frozen Tundra for 4 trips around the square:

Cone 1: 10 Burpees, 8 Burpees, 6 Burpees, 4 Burpees

Cone 2: 40 LBCs, 30 LBCs, 20 flutter kicks, 20 American Hammers

Cone 3: 25 Merkins, 20 Merkins, 15 Wide Arm Merkins, 10 Hand Release Merkins

Cone 4: 40 Squats, 30 Bobby Hurleys, 20 Mountain Climbers each leg, 20 Monkey Humpers


To the Pavilion – Quick Q Source discussion on Leadership Development Process: 1) Schooling, 2) Apprenticeship, 3) Opportunity, and 4) Failure.

Slow Dips – in Cadence

Heisenberg Step Ups – 10 each leg, OYO

GUEST – Newbie Q! – Intent was for Q to get a newbie to lead an exercise and get a taste of Qing.

But – FAIL for the Q! Left the OYO option on the table and two newbies took advantage of it to dodge leading an exercise. Lesson learned!

To the Tundra for Suicides –

10 Frog pushup things

10 half way squats

10 V Ups


To the Playground

7 Pack with Pullups and Merkins

10 x – WW2 situps

10 x – WW1 situps

20 x flutterkicks

Mosey around Field to the Flag.

BOM – Thanks for two of the PAX getting jobs (mostly set – they start in the coming weeks), Memorial Services for LiFO’s MIL, Traf has to keep quiet for 3 day Silent Retreat this weekend (YHC would go on the weekend just to see if he could do it!)

LiFo Bonus material – 1) resist the first temptation for a thing, much easier than stopping after 2nd and 3rd taste…2) Boy Scout TIP – EDGE – Educate, Demonstrate, Guide, and Enable – great LDP!
