Q in charge (QIC):  Selleck

Weather: 52 and overcasty, dank, dark…essentially ideal.

Selleck coming off a solo-Q-hiatus and it was reflected in the opening. The welcome, core principles and disclaimer were given. The mission was nowhere to be found.  Selleck spared the PAX and pre-mosey and leapt straight into warmorama at the shovel flags. :

  • String Rippers x 10 IC
  • Tempo Merksins X 10 IC
  • Blades of Steel X 10 IC
  • Down Down to Howl at the Moon X 2 flow

Shake off the Dust (prethang)

  • PAX counted off and were directed to form 4 lines of 7, PAX lunged walked 100 yard to the dumpster then planked for the six,
  • Lot lizards
    • Derkins x 12 IC – bear crawl to other side of drive/lot (when QIC called out bear crawl the loving mumble chatter began, led by a Khaki’s F@%K OFF!)
    • Carolina Dry dock X 12 IC – crab walk to other side of drive
    • Werkins X 12 IC – grapevine to other side of drive
    • Tempo Merkins X 12 IC.
  • Lucky charms lead the group to the court for round of Alt Shouder Taps X 20 IC

Sweep up the mess (the THANG)

Inspired by a broomstick home workout one-fine-covid-day, Selleck pulled out 24 PVC pipes the length of a broomstick for a super sweep sweat session. The PAX numbered 28…so the modification began. PAX partnered up with a stick and swept up the mess 4-rounds:

Round 1 (each exercise flapjacked w/partner)

  • Copperhead squats / Burbees – 12 IC
  • SSH / Squat with side-bend – 12 IC
  • ALL PAX – supermans 12 IC

ARMBAR RUN (PAX held their arms up and pipe (bar) above their head & ARMBAR led PAX on mosey to soccer field and back to the court)

Round 2

  • Mountain Climbers / Air Squat w/shoulder extension – 12 IC
  • SSH / Side plank shoulder extension  – 6 IC each arm
  • ALL PAX – supermans 12 IC

SALLY DOWN- way down…Post thing (humble reminder for YHC – if you can’t do it, don’t queue it)

  • PAX got tight in circle and played Bring Sally Down
  • Merkin position and held up/down based on song lyrics
  • At 2 min mark, Selleck broke from song and called 12 merkins on his down.

OMAHA!!!

CoT

  • Armbar shared a story of joy
  • Plagute shared a story of growth & appreciation
  • Selleck rambled about leadership and excitement of getting back in the stream that is F3
  • In parting the QiC read a passage centered around permanent worth from “Awareness – The Perils & Opportunities of Reality” by the late Anthony De Mello
    • Page 107 – in short…pleasant experiences are what we seek, but it’s the suffering and painful experiencing where we grow. If we knew how to use that suffering…Oh, how we would grow.

Aye!
