Spider-Man Burpees

3 PAX for EC 5k and 13PAX for the ME.  YHC was excited to Q #theeagle because it is a great site and my last attempt got botched due to the lock-down.  Well with the party back on, YHC wanted to come up with something new to turn it up a bit.  Enter the Spider-Man […]

Tough but Gratifying

Father’s Day was yesterday, and YHC put out on Slack to come to his Q in the morning and figure out how the exercises had to do with Father’s Day. Well… turns out there wasn’t any real theme and YHC was hoping that someone else might be able to unify everything under one coherent concept. […]

Objective: Failure

I was taught in Strength & Conditioning class in high school that the objective of exercise was complete muscle failure.  Whether it was bench, squat, deadlift, pull-ups, etc, you push until you can’t get the weight up by yourself again, the spotter has to help on that last rep. Eleven PAX, including FNG “Mint Julep”, […]

18 and Life

It’s ACC Tourney week, so decided to make today’s theme 18 in honor of number of UNC’s ACC tournament titles. Obviously we Carolina fans are praying for a miracle 19 but probably ain’t in the cards. 18 is still a pretty good number, for tourney titles, burpees, etc., as 8 intrepid PAX found out. WARMUP-SSH […]

This Day in Music History

As my name would suggest, I like to make music a part of my Qs. So for my first musical Q at The Eagle, I drew from significant events that happened on February 24 in music history as my guide. Turns out there’s a lot to work with! WARM UPS – while listening to “Bad […]

Swinging it around at The Eagle

YHC recently moved about 5-10 minutes closer to the Eagle AO, but had yet to post since the relocation. YHC has been largely sidelined due to some minor health issues and was excited to get back out in the gloom. Due to a Sweats inspiration, YHC has accumulated 10,000 kettlebell swings each of the past […]

Remembering 8/24

YHC had already worked out most of a Q plan when he was shocked to hear about the untimely passing of Kobe Bryant. Now, it’s not like Kobe was YHC’s personal favorite player or anything like that. But YHC remembers Kobe being drafted as a high schooler, and (like many other PAX, he suspects), watched […]

Seal Fit – Page 1

1 PAX got in an EC 5k and 7 more showed up for the ME on an unseasonably warm December morn. For Christmas this year, YHC received a book called 8 weeks to Seal Fit (if you’re intrigued, check it out here: https://www.amazon.com/Weeks-SEALFIT-Unconventional-Training-Toughness/dp/125004054X ) and sat down to start reading it over the weekend. After […]

Turning it up to 11 on V-Day
