Get Low! (Fuzzy Dice VQ)

AO: The Bridge

When: 2023-11-17

QIC: Fuzzy Dice

PAX (10): Birdie, Dinghy, Fuzzy Dice, Hackeysack, Maguire, Popper, Potter, Saint2O, Spackle, TURK


Being my VQ, I... decided to be selfish and emphasize some stuff I like:  Kettlebell Swings & Squats!  But, because we have to get better - still included some stuff I don't so much like: Burpees & Merkins (but in proportion :-) ...).  Took the opportunity to emphasize full-depth & range-of-motion for the PAX - full-depth squats; hand-release merkins; dead-hang strict pull-ups.


  • Get Warm: Side-Straddle Hops, Michael Phelps, Windmill, Weedpicker, Monkey-humpers, Copperhead Squat
  • Coupon Mosey to stage
