Matrix March Madness

Matrix March Madness

6 Men posted up on for The Matrix this morning.  The weather forecast the night before looked terrible and upon arrival at the AO it was pretty much as forecasted.  Surprisingly little grumbling when I unloaded 5 sandbags out of the trunk!

The Thang,

Grab sandbags and run them over to the front porch of the school with the nice roof and creepy lighting that kept going on and off during the workout.

COP – SSH, Low Slow Squats, Mountain Climbers, and Imperial Walkers.

Instructions were fairly simple.

Round 1:  3 Exercises – Merkins, Over head press with the sand bag, and flutters.  64 reps of each then run to end of bus lot and back.  Repeat with reps of 32, 16, 8, 4, 2, 1

People’s Chair while we wait on the six.

Round 2:  3 Exercises – Squats with the sandbag, Donkey Kicks, and LBC’s.  64, 32, 16, 8, 4, 2, & 1 rep with runs in between.

Peoples Chair with sandbag in lap while we wait on the six. A little bit of planking.

Grab sandbags and head back to launch.  Already out of time.


64 reps of merkins and OH presses right out of the gate was terrible.  I was smoked before we even really got started.  My guess is now Purell is going to be much better at bear crawls with all that shoulder work. He and Rachel were leading the back. Squid maintained exquisite form as we have come to expect.  O’Tannebaum was working hard to keep pace with Rachel and Purell and hung in there for all of Round 1.  Pop Tart figured the longer he took with each round somehow correlated with how long UNC was going to stay in the tournament.  Not sure that correlation is really logical, but we let him have it.

Lots of work and very little mumble chatter out there.  Was happy to see the rain stop and give us a nice morning after about the first 10 minutes.

After we loaded all the bags back into the car everyone commented an how awesome they thought O’Tannebaum’s high visibility rain slicker was.  He was happy for the compliments.

Thanks to Squid for the takeout.




Official Hawk’s Nest Launch tomorrow morning 5:30 from the Charlotte Latin Middle School lot (off Raintree Lane).   Fast Twitch will now be launching at the same spot at 5:15.   Common COT at the end.
