Better late than never

Better late than never

YHC started typing this BB this morning but never got around to publishing it…better late than never!

4 men turned into 7 men and got a little dirty, got a little sweaty, and showed some rocks who was boss at the Valley of the Sun.

3 minutes til and a couple pre-runners are finishing up a 5-miler (allegedly). We whip out the DiCCS as 2 more cars pull into the parking lot. Better late than never! Let’s mosey


  • Head to the bus lot for a warmup while we wait for the latecomers to catch up
  • 60 Side Straddle Hops IC
  • 20 Imperial Walkers IC
  • Plank with calf stretches then 6 inches
  • Recover and mosey
  • Oh wait, gimme 10 burpees OYO

The Thang:
Little did the PAX know that Outland had transformed into a gear workout. *cue evil laugh*

  • Each PAX grab a good hefty rock from the pile (a “lifting rock” as Double E would say)
    • 10 curls IC
    • 10 chest presses IC
    • 10 tricep extensions IC
    • Set your rock on the ground, run to the curb and back
    • Shift over and grab a different rock then repeato
    • Ahhh one more time just for funsies
  • Mosey towards the elementary school with some Low Slow Squats on the way
  • Those poor suckers thought we were done with the rocks! New “lifting rock” from the pile, same exercise
    • 10 curls IC
    • 10 chest presses IC
    • 10 tricep extensions IC
  • Take your rock to the school, find some wall, then chair up
  • Next exercise is…the Wonderbra! Push’em out and push’em up! For those unfamiliar, while in the chair position on the wall, you hold your “lifting rock” to your chair then IC extend the rock straight out, back in, chest press, then back in and that’s one. Let’s do a 10 count IC
  • Slide over one rock and repeato!
  • Instructions to leave the rocks at the wall cause we’d be back were met with groans cheers and songs of “For he’s a jolly good fellow”
  • Mosey to the track at the playground for the Circle of Death. For this exercise, one PAX names an exercise for the other PAX to perform AMRAP while he runs a lap around the track. Upon his return another PAX calls an exercise and runs a lap. Repeat until all PAX have called an exercise. We had so much fun YHC called for a repeato of the whole thing. Can’t quite remember all the exercises but here’s a few:
    • Burpees
    • LBCs
    • Flutter
    • Bombjacks
    • Hand-release Merkins
    • Backscratchers
    • Jump Squats
    • Sumo Squats
    • And so much more!
  • Don’t forget about those rocks! Back to the wall for another round of the Wonderbra!
  • Carry your rock back across the parking lot for a few more exercises:
    • On your 6 for 15 Skullcrushers IC
    • On your 6 for 15 chest presses IC
    • On your feet for 15 speed skaters over the rock
  • Alright, put those rocks back and let’s mosey back towards SVMS
  • On the way – 10 burpees OYO
  • What??!? Another rock pile? Grab another “lifting rock” (more cheers and “best Q ever” heard)
    • 10 curls IC
    • 10 chest presses IC
    • 10 tricep extensions IC
    • Sit your rock down and run to the curb
      • 10 Incline Merkins OYO
      • 15 In and Outs IC
      • Run back to the rocks and put’em away
    • Mosey back to the front of SVMS
    • Circle up for some Compass – Everyone plank facing the school
      • Start at 0° and do 3 Merkins OYO
      • Next PAX calls out degrees on a compass and the PAX rotate clockwise while in plank position and do 3 more Merkins OYO
      • Continue until all PAX have called a direction
    • 1 minute left so finish up with some American Hammers


  • Welcome FNGs Madison and Double E…oh wait, they just haven’t been to Outland in forever. Welcome back guys. It was good to see you!
  • Great meeting Box Truck. He’s mostly up in the Area 51 AOs but he worked hard and I didn’t hear any complaining. Guess I need to make it more difficult next time…
