Someone else’s weinke

11 pax beat the fartsack to post for what they thought would be a Swanson led workout.  Swanson called an audible, but not before providing a weinke, and YHC decided to take the Q, but made some changes to the weinke as the workout progressed.  Below is a close approximation of what happened.



Circle up(still in the front parking lot)

SSH x 15 IC

The pax then moseyed a short distance between each of the following exercises.  Between the shoulder warmup exercises, arms were kept in the raised position during the mosey(picture pretending to be an airplane).  This added a new degree of difficulty to a usually easy exercise.

Iron Cross x 10 OYO

At this point ChHedda(r), at the prompting of Wapner, displayed a new exercise that he introduced at Tread on Sunday.  Wapner wants to name it the “row row your boat canoe.”  YHC did not call this exercise due to a lack of coordination on YHC’s part, and if you can’t do it, don’t Q it.

Flutter Kick x 15 IC


TP will be converging at the Cheech 10K this Saturday.

YHC mentioned the discussion that has taken place at the Forge over the last couple weeks regarding a man’s relationship with his work.  YHC encouraged the pax to read the q source material and keep proper alignment between work and other commitments/relationships.
