Hannibal is a hero of mine. Always able to envision a plan and inspire his team to execute it perfectly to save the day much like YHC’s Q today at the Stockyard. From signing up to Q, saving the date on my calendar, writing out my weinke, showing up early, giving clear instructions, and watching the Pax go to work, LawDog Q’s are A-Team quality work.  Now I know Doink is thinking Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, and Rampage Jackson, and that other guy were pretty awesome in the movie, but the rest of you know which A-Team YHC is actually talking about. The movie was good, but not as great as the TV Show. One day YHC is going to buy the van and wear the bling like Mr. T to all the beatdowns.

5:29:29 sharp throw the truck into park, get out of the truck and and tell the Pax to mosey at 5:30 on the dot.  Quick lap around the parking lot because YHC noticed a lot of pax had coupons so did not want to venture to far away for a nice warm-0-Rama. After the usual IW, WP, and HJs, to warm up, grab your coupon and mosey. Luckily YHC always has his sandbag and kettlebell in his truck just in case it is needed.

Ran around the the school until we reached a grassy spot. Partner up with a sandbagged. One partner does over the shoulder bag throw squats while the other partner runs down the rode and around that light pole. Rinse and repeat three times. YHC learned that Maaco prefers the little bags. I think he bought the GoRuck Fanny Pack size.

YHC noticed a perfect concrete square on the side of the road, so next up was 4 corners. 10 shoulder presses, Zamperini walk to next corner for 20 squats, Zamperini walk to next corner for curls, zamperini walk to next corner for side to side lunges 40 times, zamperini back to the start for Mary for the six who was Exile. Apparently he chose the opposite bag as Maaco because he knows his biceps have been under utilized after all those years of building his quads.

It was about this time that YHC noticed the grounds crew had cut the hill at the back like YHC requested, so lined up at the bottom of the hill for 10 merkin pull throughs with the coupons. Wastewater’s rock made this excercise a lot harder than the sandbags and Tiny Tat crushed his cinderblock into pieces. After the merkins run to the top of the hill for 10 star jump condors. Groot was a man possessed at the sound of the condors.

Continue moseying to the back of the school, hey look that side walk is a Y shape. Partner up with a sandbagger. Partner one does man-makers with he sandbags while partner 2 runs to the end of the sidewalk where he has to decide to go left or right for Election Day. More lefties in the group than YHC would have thought but reminded them it was a primary Election Day and there are no left votes in Cherokee County today, so you might as well run to the right.

Just enough time to work our way back to the flag running  suicide light pole route. 10 curls, take your coupon to the next light pole, drop it and run back on light pole for 3 burpees. Run back to your coupon for 10 curls and on to the next pole until back to the flag where we had 30 seconds of my girl J-Lo.

Name-0-Rama and COT.

Absolutely enjoyed getting down to the south side. YHC has been in a little bit of a rut and signing up for Qs outside the normal routine seemed like the best way to accelerate into the summer time. Look forward to more trips and was really excited to see that the clinic has expanded to 2 hours for the summer time. That will be a fun challenge.
