PAX (11): Birdie, Ha-ha, HIPAA, Nacho Libre, Red Ryder (D Mack), Tricycle (Mike Stolorena), Tsunami, Training Wheels, Little Foot, Beeps
This was my VQ at the Bound, and I hadn’t been there in several months, so I was pleasantly surprised to see the massive transformation of the campus. Since this was my first Q here, I hoped to make it memorable.
Mosey, SSH, Weedpickers, windmills, Moroccan Nightclubs, mosey back to the new building.
Climb that Hill
Setup: 8 cones, roughly 10′ in a line up a slight incline, each with a listed exercise and rep count:
15 Big Boys
20 American Hammers (alpha)
20 Jump Squats
15 Diamond Merkins
5 Yowzers (burpee with Bonnie Blair at top)
Start at first cone. Perform exercise, then turn around and run the path back toward the old chow hall and back to the first cone. Perform that exercise, then bear crawl to the next cone and perform that exercise. Turn around and run the path and return to the first cone. Perform the first three exercises, bear crawling between the cones. R&R all the way to the summit. With a few minutes to spare, PAX repeated the sequence, but with the run cut in half, and exercising at just one cone, in succession. So no bear crawls, and no repeated exercises.
If you completed the full sequence, you did:
105 Big Boys
120 Alpha American Hammers
100 Jump Squats
60 Diamond Merkins
2 mile run
