At 0554 Billy Goat and I thought we might be the only ones today, but as usual, the crew trickled in to make 5. Then Airwolf came in hot and we circled the lot to pick him up. Like a true vet, he hopped out of the car and was ready to go. Wait, wasn’t there supposed to be an FNG?? Apparently, Billy Goat did not tell FNG-Brian that we start promptly at 0600. Seeing a red convertible going from lot to lot, BG told use to go ahead and he would wait. Nope, we will just wait for him to pull in, back in, watch him search for something in his car, then trunk…ok, now he is ready. Prior to this point YHC had asked every one to grab 2 water bottles and now at 7, water in hand, off we went!
Jog over to the lot with a pond (yep, could not be more specific). The one by the gas station, near the rock pile…yeah, that one. Once at the parking lot, we went into the basic warm up, water in hands when appropriate. Oh, the disclaimer was delivered to FNG on the run.
Seal Jack x20
Arm circles (frontwards and backward) x15 each
Imperial Walker x20
Mountain climber x15
Then a bunch of ab work…Rest position was 10″ -Box cutters x20, Reverse Box cutters x20, American Hammer x20, Boat Canoe until i heard someone say, “no one is doing these, we are just watching you”. That’s when you know you need to move.
Instructions were to set your waters down and head to the rock pile and find a lifting rock. More on the rock choice below. Once the proper rock was secured, we made 3 stops as we did everything x 20: Curls, Tri’s and Presses. When traveling, hold rock above head.
At this point it was time for some sort of inspirational speech….Blah, Blah, Blah….Burden of life, distractions, finding peace, taking time to breath…think I covered it. Not sure anyone understood or cared, but everyone was wondering why we had the water…here we go.
As a side note, this was a Ruck quarantine workout (credit Cadre DS of GoRuck fame). Originally performed with a #20 ruck, we did not have Rucks, but we did have rocks.
Instructions: Empty one bottle (take a sip, pour it on your head, pour it out for a homie- just empty the contents). Before each round, fill your mouth with water (more on that), do not swallow or spit the contents and perform the following: Burpees x10 / Squats x20 (10 per leg) w/rock. Once completed, empty the water from you mouth into the empty bottle. The timer was set for 2 min per round. Hopefully you had a few seconds left to breath and repto. We completed 10 rounds. 100 burpees, 200 lunges.
Once that fun ended, we headed over to the pond with the Rock in hand
At the pond we had 3 stations and performed the following: Split Merkins (on rock) x10, Dips x20 (w/rock in lap), Squats (with rock) x30. Repto 2 more times, 2nd round had Diamond Merkins on rock.
Running out of time….put Rocks back, throw trash away and all you got back to the parking lot
Announcements: Lex Luther promoting Tweet and Meat on Wednesday…yeah total brownie points! Seriously, come out. Phroel on Q this Wednesday, promises a Ruck beat down @ South Clt 0515
Thank you Cul-de-Sac for the prayer take out
