  • The PAX: Pow Pow, Juice, Vila, Pennyworth, Squatter, Paper Jam, Britta, Kenwood.

8 PAX meet at @F3LexSC @F3_Ambush for a surprise Q, and surprise workout.

Yesterday afternoon I noticed that Juice was on the Q sheet.  Knowing he had a lot on his mind this week, I asked if he wanted me to take the Q duties off his plate.  He did and it was soon announced that there was a “surprise Q” for Tuesday’s bootcamp.  Well YHC likes surprises too, so I made the whole workout a semi-surprise for all.  4 met for SL, 8 for BC.

Weather: nice an cool, a little cloudy.

1 minute warning (the Q surprise was over), welcome, disclaimer, prayer.

Mosey to the block pile and grab a block, mosey over to the hexagon/octogon/benches.  While moseying there was mention of no warm-up, someone needed to loosen up with some thru the tunnels, and there was no side straddle hops.  So when we got to the benches we did a warm-up consisting of:

  • 1x TTT
  • 1x SSH

There was couple weird looks and comments as most of the PAX continued to count.  But… they got their warm-up.

So to make the workout a surprise I laid out 2 bags, 3 pens and lots of paper slips.  Everyone was to write down 3 numbers – their birth month (1-12), their birth date (1-31), and their age (27-48).  We did get a birth year of 1990, but there was no way I was going to do 1990 of anything!  Then everyone wrote down 2 of their favorite/worse/least used exercises that could be block/bench/body weight based.  The numbers went into a bag.  The exercises went into a bag (I already had a handful in there).  We did 6 rounds pulling out 5 numbers with 5 exercises.  Whatever was drawn was the quantity of exercise.  Surprise!!!  Here is what happened in random order:

  • 26x Turkish Getups
  • 24x Incline Merkins
  • 9x Decline Shoulder Taps
  • 2x Double Merkin Burpees
  • 31x LBCs
  • 7x Block American Hammers
  • 12x Incline Merkins
  • 20x Dips
  • 35x Monkey Humpers
  • 31x LBCs
  • 10x Decline Merkins
  • 24x Dips
  • 22x Step Ups (11 each leg)
  • 1x Block Bent Over Row
  • 10x Block Overhead Presses

  • 34x Gas Pumps

We returned the blocks and met back at the shovel flag for the:

  • Pow Pow – cousin Shane, cut fingers in table saw.


1 Corinthians 10:12-13
12Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall. 13No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
