Well Woody was supposed to have the Q today, but he is MIA. Hope he’s still alive…..we should probably check on him. So as the Master Q, I decided I would answer the bell. It was pretty convenient since I was supposed to Q on Thursday and didn’t. So I already had the workout planned. What I didn’t plan for was what happened next….

0600 we get a text

“There might be a surprise guest this morning” – PBR

While PBR is among Lenoir most committed, he rarely comes to The Den. Its too easy for him. So he goes and rides his bike for 20 miles. So I knew if PBR was going to be there……I had to find some stairs. I arrived a few minutes early to make sure the stadium steps were in decent shape. As I was coming back down Panther trail, a red Nissan Titan passed me. I thought to myself, “Who could that be at this hour in the morning?” Then it hit me…….PBR.

So PBR turned around, followed me to the AO. But wait! Is that Bismark? Its been a while since he’s been to the Den. And wait……is that Spokes? This was shaping up to be a decent size group. It been awhile since we’ve hit double digits in Lenoir. So this is how it went down.


  • SSH
  • Butt Kickers

It was now approx. 7:01 and we hear the sound of squalling tires. Ah yes! Its officially Snips F3 start time. Dressed in his usual 10 layers, even though it was a nice 45 degrees, he joined in mid-High knee’s

  • Spider Lunge
  • Big Arm Circles
  • Chest Open Jack

Indian run to the stadium

Deconstructed Burpee

We would complete the 4 exercises below as a group. First round, 10. Second round, 9. Third round, 8……you get the idea. Because PBR had blessed us with his presence, we would run the stadium in between each set.

  • Squat
  • Leg Thrust
  • Merkin
  • Leg Thrust

We went all the way down to 1 and then did 10 as a victory lap

Mosey to the Blocks…

Since we had 12 PAXs we had to partner up

P1 would AMRAP with the block while P2 ran a suicide(approx. 75 yards). FlapJack.

  • Round 1 – Curls
  • Round 2 – Over Headpress
  • Round 3 – out of time….

Mosey back to the AO


Shared today’s devotion that I do with my kids in the morning. Today’s was about doing your best for God. What ever it is… it for him!

Colossians 3:23-24 English Standard Version (ESV)

23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,


  • It was great to have PBR, Spokes, and Bismark out on a Saturday
  • PBRs calf muscles have calf muscles
  • Swinger put F3 Hickory on notices last night with those dance moves
  • Baby Face, Audit, and Snips just stood around awkwardly as if they were at a middles school dance party
  • I don’t think Spokes broke a sweat today. Ill try harder next time
  • Wile E’s workout clothes are nicer than my nice clothes
