No hand merkins (Hand release)

American Hammers


Humpers, monkey variety


Incline Merkins



Eight count body builders

After all NASHVILLE exercises are complete, the PAX make their way to the startex for some Mary Go Round, whereby we do 60 seconds of a Mary exercise I call out based upon my perceived favorite Mary exercise from certain long-time PAX.

Vector – Box Cutters

Crawlspace – Hello Dolly

Crablegs – Time Machine Leg Lifts

Hambone – Alabama Prom Dates

Firefox – High Plank

Princess Aurora – WWIs

Black Lung – Flutter Kicks


The Nashville PAX have been an immense blessing to me these last 4 years, and I find myself tremendously grateful for your fellowship, encouragement, camaraderie, and fitness. As my last bomber Q, it was a pleasure to bring things to a close with a NASHVILLE Q. A special thanks to Crablegs for EH’ing me many moons ago. I look forward to popping in for a surprise Q sometime in the future!


Prayers for Lunch Lady’s friend Jim, who was recently diagnosed with small cell carcinoma.

Plans are merely a thing to be deviated from. ~ J. Garcia

So, I designed today’s Q yesterday and had a few leftovers from my last Q at 413. Per usual, I deviated and the above is pretty close to what happened.

Thank y’all for letting me lead. Pretty good total body workout for the crew with some dynamic movements, primal movements and some Broga moves to get breathing back under control.

Solid work from the HIM today. See y’all next week.

Such a great morning … clean, crisp, refreshing like a Bush Light. Nice exploration of the space at Sir E, truly one of the most diverse AOs in the rota. Classic stops at the barn, Big Stick’s ridge, the 3 way and the back hill that goes on forever. Truly one of my favorite AOs.
Nice mix of movements and time under tension.
Good to see DP after a few weeks and PSL as well. Glad to have 5Star in the mix as well. Kotters to our resident member of the clergy DuPriest. Pedialyte provided coffee as usual with some paper specimen cups for coffeeteria. Always good to Q a workout that gives W4AG pause.


Prayer requests for the following:
appendix surgery for DuPriest’s parishioner
Marriage of DP’s brother
Birth upcoming for West Nash PAX
Sabbatical grant for DuPriest



Circle Time is Over

The four horsemen posted at The Stronghold to celebrate the last F3 workout for this class.  Fun was had by all!

PAX: Cogito, Shocker, Red Skull, Toga (QIC)

Gloom Factor: 70 and Sunny

Thang:  Disclaimer followed by mosey to gravel lot for warmarama then head to the adjacent grassy area for some grass drills.

Mosey to the deck for everyone to pickup a coupon/block then head on over to the bball court.  Partner up for partner block work=

  • P1 bear crawl while P2 executes block thrusters, flapjack and repeato x3
  • P1 lunge while P2 executes block swings, flapjack and repeato x3
  • P1 carry overs while P2 executes curls, flapjack and repeato x3
  • P1 side lunges while P2 executes deadlifts, flapjack and repeato x3
  • P1 backwards run while P2 executes tricep extensions, flapjack and repeato x3
  • Core work intervals were scattered throughout

In honor of Blue Mule, and to make sure Cogito didn’t miss out on the experience, the PAX completed 30, 8 count body builders with some stops to discuss goals, core values and what 4:13 means to the PAX.

NMM: It was almost perfect!  The rain wanted to start a full downpour right when we started, but it never really got up to full, drenching speed.  That said, the PAX worked hard to get a lot done in one workout.  Best wishes to Cogito on his interviews and welcome back to Shocker from his IR status.

Stay Classy,

Box of Chocolates at Racetrack

15 Redwoods decided to get a little better on Maryland Way in the gloom.  An FNG, a Willy Loman and a Venus rising were all in attendance.

PAX: Umbrella, Parasol (FNG and 2.0), Val (Willy Loman), Olan Mills (Starsky), Venus, Big Bang, Tampa Libra, Toga (QIC), Penny Loafers, Barkley, Wedding Singer, Ponzi, Boone’s Farm, Nurse Ratched, Not A Sport

Gloom Factor: 70 and Sunny

Thang: Standard issue disclaimer then begin the APFT with a 2 mile run.  Bang and Ponzi led the pack with Parasol in hot pursuit.  Following completion of the run portion, the PAX partnered up and completed the push-up and sit-up portion of the APFT.

We immediately began on an improvement program with a mosey to the pull-up bars to complete a ladder to 5 and back down.  This was followed by 3 sets of 10 rows on the bars.

Mosey back to the lot for Mary.

NMM: So many things happening at The Track today.  We had the naming of a 2.0 (who can jump way higher than Umbrella), Val in from out of town, Tampa thanking me for having the 2 mile run at the beginning of the workout, Venus joining us half way through the run.., the list goes on.  Life truly is like a box of chocolates when you come to the Racetrack.

Stay Classy,
