19 Pax met for a little bit of work at the Body Shop today. I had thought of this workout the first time that we scoped out this new AO. My inspiration was a little simulation of running ammo to forward positions in need. I have to admit that half the time I was running today, I was thinking back to having Drill Instructor Staff Sergeant Green running behind me yelling, “Don’t hurry or anything Recruit Thoms. We have all (expletive) day. Your fellow Marines are only dying while you take your sweet ass time running them ammo.” Of course in that one short narrative there would have been at least 20 F-bomb’s, but I sanitized things here. Anyway, let’s get on with it.
DICCS – Always have to give the DICCS (Disclaimer, CPR Check, Cell Phone Check and Safety Reminder) Done.
A quick mosey around the parking lot and circle up for a quick warmup.
Pair up one gazelle and one Clydesdale. Grab a “shmedium” size rock if you don’t have a coupon. Not a lifting rock, but not a running rock.
Here’s the workout. You and your partner will perform 4 total exercises, 2 sets of each, 25 reps per. You will perform set 1 of exercise 1 and then run the 1/3 mile to the entrance of the school, with your rock or block. At the entrance you will perform the 1st set of the 2nd exercise and then run the 1/3 mile back, where you will perform the 2nd set of the 1st exercise. Repeato until you have completed 2 sets of all four exercises. You will never leave your partner nor your rock/block (ammo).
I did call a mercy audible on the last set of the forth exercise, we were just too short on time unfortunately. Also props to Posse and his partner who were out front the whole time. Also, Cotters to Legalized, good to see you back out brother (even if on crutches).
Cradle to grave…I prayed us out.
