March Madness! Coupon Friendly Q vs Q Challenge!

March Madness! Coupon Friendly Q vs Q Challenge!

Workout Date:



Vitamin D and Rousey


Hot Tub (Kotters to a beatdown), Hamburglar, Rocky Top (Kotters), El Red Cardo, Brown Bag, Texas Ranger, Rubber, Humpback, Plunger (DR from Winston-Salem), and Sunshine (Nan'tan)

The Thang:

Conditions: Low 40s with a chill in the air and frost on the ground.  Great day for a beatdown!

YHC signed up for the Q vs Q challenge and there happened to be a spot to request a competitor.  YHC remembered his last C0-Q where he bested Rousey in the beatdown, but unfortunately Rousey won the war as Alabama beat my Dawgs to become SEC champs.  This is my chance at revenge!

With YHC and Rousey having responsible jobs and busy with families there was not much time for pre-game trash talk.  Thus One Call dubbing this the Kindness matchup.  I figured with neither Rousey or I having a stereotypical B-ball stature this would be a “heavyweight” brawl.


With Skidmark (BombSquad’s AOQ) nowhere to be found, our Nan’tan took over for the introductions and warm ups.

Coin flip…tails…Vit-D called tails and elected to defer due to having a grand finale up his sleeveless shirt.

Rousey #1

An old standby for Rousey, a Dora style circuit, with bear crawls instead of running.  Pair up. Each pair does 100 BBSUs. Pax 1 does the exercise with Pax 2 bearcrawling to apx. middle of the parking lot and does the same as far as he can back (upon fatigue switching to a toy soldier march) to point of origin. Plank at end and wait for 6. While planking QIC asked the Pax for the mission and all 5 core principles.

Next: Sevens, Burpees and Squat Jumps with a hop over the fence in between.  The fence was a challenge with the frost.


YHC #2

Mosey over to the coupon pile while YHC picks up the “basketball” for todays competition.  You can’t have a March Madness Challenge with out ball and Suicides!

Pax partnered up and then lined up on the sideline to run suicides together.  After the run coupons were utilized for 25 Swings.

Our “basketball” aka 15 lb Medicine ball was rotated between Pax for 3 jump shots.  YHC warned that if the ball hit the ground there would be a 10 burpee penalty!

2nd round of Suicides with 25 Merkins.  YHC was passed the ball and not completely intentionally it hit the ground.  (Reliving my PE butterfinger days; hence taking up wrestling in high School!)

So 10 burpees performed by all!

Next a quick set of 25 Thrusters with the coupons.


Rousey #3

Bataan death march lap around the church with a telephone pole, coupons, and THE BUCKET!


YHC #4

Retrieve coupons from the field and Mosey to the adjacent parking lot.  Line up and get an intro to Crossfit and the ongoing Open workouts that are being completed worldwide.

25 Clean and Jerks with the coupon

Then BALLMAKERS!  A new creation of Balls to the Wall combined with Manmakers.

March Madness themed Sweet Sixteen, 5 min AMRAP of 1 handstand wall walking the feet up to where the boys touch the wall and then 6 Manmakers.  Plenty of Mumble chatter ensued.  Everyone completed at least 3 rounds with encouragement from YHC.

Last but not least  YHC saved 2 min to bring back the surprise:


Last time was a free-for all with last man standing.  This time Pax partnered up with a fight to the whistle! Duck Jousting consists up assuming a duck walk stance and then trying to know your fellow combatant over without using hands.  Brownbag has surprising good balance however he didn’t have much of duck stance with the bad knee!  We fought to a draw, but several pax hit the ground.

Our DR pax, Plunger was thoroughly impressed and plans to take this immediately back to the home AO, The Dash!
