Q101 at Surge

7 Pax overcame the compelling grip of the fartsack to join YHC for Q101 at Surge. Everyone learns at Q school. From Pax who have not done their VQ to Pax who Q 100 times a year and even the Q of Q school learns. If you have not been to one I encourage you to go. I wrote a story about it and here it goes. Well actually I’m just going to copypasta my BB from Tuesday and edit it a little bit but you get the idea.

The Weather: Tad on the nipply side 40ish

The Thang:

Before we started YHC covered (the 1-minute warning, calling for new guys, disclaimer, pre-workout prayer, assigning a sweep)

Mosey around the lot to the front of the school

Covered (calling an exercise, counting in cadence, observing the Pax, demonstrating proper form, varying cadence to match the movement, command voice, It’s not about you, If you can’t do it don’t Q it, overcoming mumblechatter)

Mosey around the back of the school where the wind would be blocked

Bulgarian ball buster x 15 each leg

Morning wood x 10 each side

Mosey around to the other side of the school for a pop quiz dealer’s choice style

This is where the Pax got to show what they have learned by calling an exercise in cadence properly with the other Pax giving feedback. Some of the exercises called were:

Flutter kicks, LBCs, Hello Dollies, Heel Touches, Monkey Humpers, Side Straddle Hops, WWI sit ups

There were more but that’s all YHC can remember



Covered ( count-o-rama, name-o-rama, backblasts, #F3counts tweet, COT, prayer requests, announcements, BOM, devo, planning workouts, keeping track of time, leaning on AOQ for help)


  • T-claps to the Surge Pax for the participation and hard work.
  • T-claps to the Strideliters. Cobains I was late for it and had to go solo.
  • Everyone did a great job today and I definitely see some VQs coming up soon.
