Commitment Tag Team to Start 2021

It was another gloomy January day in Waxhaw.  The temperature the night before said it was expected to be 53, but at wakeup was 43.  Mad Dog and I teamed up to split the Q.


  • Mosey from the parking lot past the circle to the bridge and back to the circle
  • 20 Side Straddle Hops
  • 20 Imperial Walkers
  • Calf stretches
  • Downward Dog
  • Right Leg, Right Hand, Left Leg, Left Hand

The Thang

  • Start with 5 merkins from the circle at every other trip heading toward the top of the street, circling back for the 6.
  • Since we skipped every other tree on the way up, we couldn’t leave the ones out that we skipped, so we went back down
    hitting the skipped trees with 5 monkey humpers each tree.
  • Mosey from the circle up to the rock pile for a lifting rock.
  • Partner up
    • 100 curls
    • 100 overhead triceps
    • 100 overhead press
    • 100 standing chest press
    • Run to the first corner and back
  • Lunge walk to the corner
  • Now, I didn’t want to add a new merkin, so instead I added a new plank motion.  In a plank position, start out slow cadence, right foot, right hand, plank position, left foot left hand and continue with a faster cadence.
  • Four laps around large parking lot with 10 reps each corner with the same exercise each lap (burpees, squats, big boys and the last
    round V-Ups.
  • Bonus lap of bomb jacks.
  • Mosey back to COT

The Moleskin

This was my first Q participation (Thanks Mad Dog for not having me do the whole time) in about 3 months after doing Mash and working my way back with other boot camps, dealing with a Sciatica issue that is feeling pretty good.

The PAX were in great spirits today and was a pleasure to co-lead.  We reached around 3 miles in a close area. I was rusty when returning back to COT and may need to go back to Q school for it again 🙂

Thanks gentlemen for helping me provide some challenges today.


  • Blood drive 01/30.  Turnbuckle wasn’t present, but can provide the good details.
  • Sledge was the 6th man and shared his experience with F3, in particular dropping an incredible 65 pounds so far and continuing.  Excellent job Sledge 🙂
