5 card draw (sort of)

AO: Nirvana

When: 2024-03-30

QIC: Sprocket

PAX (9): Dosido, goat, MillerTime, Roman, Shortcake, Sweeper (Matt Haywood), Tank, The Real Woody


It's been a few months since QIC has been well enough to lead a full fledged beatdown, but, after finding a deck of cards with some rather creative workout ideas, QIC thought one of the PAX would help decide what kind of pain would be inflicted.


plank jacks, mtn climbers, shoulder taps, walk-out 'Mericans, sun gods IC 15-20 reps each, couple of laps around the lot with side shuffles, butt kicks, high knees too.

The Thang:

Block 1 here's where the fun began: QIC drew 5 cards out of the deck o' death and let the real Woody draw one card and read aloud to the PAX what was on it.
  • 300 'Mericans
  • 300 Air Squats
  • 300 BBSU's
QIC decided to divide the PAX into 2-man teams (one team had 3 men) and attack the work Dora style with team members taking turns performing the exercises and running laps around the lot. Block 2 with 20 minutes remaining, QIC lead PAX across the road to where he had various coupons stashed.  9 stations were set-up featuring 35# med' ball slams, KB swings, 60# sandbag rows, pr. of 15# db's for devil presses, pr. of 25# db's for db thrusters, 45# sandbag over-the-shoulder clean and a body-weight station featuring burpees and sledgehammer/tractor chops x5.  All PAX rotated through the stations 1 time each.  then, it was time to return to the flag for a couple of rounds of Mary before time was called.


we lifted up all those traveling over the break and those dealing with illness.  Check with Irene for any open HAlpha Q slots needed during 12-13 April event at Boneyard AO.  Be ready to assist Tank/Nirvana AO which is hosting spring convergence May the 4th (be with you).

Naked-Man Moleskin:

as our brother Shazam posted on Slack, there's no better way to kick off your weekend than with an hour (or two or more) with your brothers in gloom.  'til next time, Sprocket out.
