Ran it back to the first time I ever Q’d. The merkle workout is based on the superset and overload principals with a merkle, crawl, plank, crawl, merkle pattern. It alternates working the chest and back, while keeping the arms in constant tension. The copperhead/wave/dip combo at the end is a burnout for the already taxed muscle groups. Hope the PAX had fun.

Q did not expect sub-freezing temperatures when he signed up for a birthday Q, but he persevered and survived by wearing 11 articles of clothing. Ten other hearty souls decided not to fartsack and posted for some frigid fun.

Q is doing a Spartan Super (8-10 miles, 24-29 obstacles) in Charlotte on April 6. Q double checked and it’s not Mother’s day and it’s not in Fayettnam. Obviously, Unicorn, Oz, McRib and Roboto are cream puffs and can’t handle the challenge, but the rest of you have no excuse.

Bridge Run is March 23.

An uncharacteristically warm December morning meant Q had no excuse to Fartsack. 12 other PAX also posted to enjoy a blustery morning for a total of 13. Fitting for Q’s first appearance in months, Schrute’s nephew posted as a FNG and forced a butchered disclaimer and mission statement.
