Kevlar Tire Beat Down

28 of South Charlotte’s finest men rolled out today for a birthday inspired workout. Again with Matlock (War Daddy) pushing the right buttons the goal was to celebrate his birthday with a 52 burpee warm up. Little did we know that Donkey Kong and Runstopper had just celebrated milestones of their own.

Moleskin

Tough workout today with added 52 birthday burpees for the War Daddy Matlock which was inspired from earlier post this week. Matlock was finally not last one arriving with Strikeout flying in late looking disheveled.Made the most of the time today getting right into it. Nice to see Harley and Five Hole at Kevlar for first time. PETA and Fraggle also posting for a second F3 workout of the week after posting at Matrix and Skunk Works respectively with strong showings and no 44lb kettle bell needed.
Far Side destroyed the hills for Jacobs Ladder. Ice T showing nimble feet for weaving Indian Run avoiding big Centurion style spills.
Push o Rama was a little tickler for the real pain of the tire ladder. Chatter got very quiet as the lads pushed hard though the pain of multiple exercises and sprints. Geraldo then left everyone for dead in final shuttle runs but “blew his wad” according to RunStopper on first round coming in with first place and then last on the repeato.

Good work by all today. Thanks for coming out to Kevlar and finishing week off strong.

Best of luck to all Spartan Sprint runners for Sunday.
Saturday workouts on as scheduled.

Matlock Payback

image

Thirty three of Charlotte’s finest came out to endure “The Matlock” which came about due to the smack talking from Mondays Matrix workout. The gentleman named Matlock who likes to cruise in for the last 15 minutes or so of a workout had the audacity to claim Kevlar was lame…Today was a chance to prove him wrong and hats off to the man for showing up and for being on time!!! In trying to prove a point any mention of the name “Matlock” by the Q meant the PAX got to enjoy a round of 10 burpees.

IW x 25

Two minutes of Mary with Skywalker on Q

Great turnout as cars kept coming at 0530. Great energy level and banter began at the quick count SSH. If Matlock would have shown up at normal time he’d have had to park on Hwy 51 and he was surprisingly quiet today even though his name was mentioned many times throughout the morning. Q struggled to keep track of the 30 second interval but was always made aware of the clock by some whining of the Zipadee kind. Cheesecurd shook off an early ankle twist around the track and pushed on through. TR was flying on the runs despite the traffic on the track. Frostbite decided to skip out on tire burpees for some kind of tire yo yo bounce instead. Nothing like sticking your head in a wet tire at 0545 for the tire dry docks. Great seeing Skywalker out today with his bionic arm even though it was not too wrist friendly. In his absence Skywalker forgot the difference between a Rosalita and a dolly but we will forgive him this time.

Announcements

Convergence next Friday at new workout called Centurion at Charlotte Catholic with Runstopper on Q so no Kevlar.
Saturday workouts as scheduled.
Thanks to Young Love for taking us out with inspirational prayer.
Congrats to Cheescurd for new addition to the Luedke clan. Word has it he’s sleeping great cos its all on his wife anyway!!!

The energy level is always up when Zip-A-Dee is there to brighten your morning fresh from a ski trip. Props to FNG’S Backcracker and Ice T for posting twice this week and hanging tough. Q went a little overboard in warm up when demonstrating chest exercises prior to the actual chest fest. Hops referenced Moon River a few times and ten pax were feeling the pain of the hills. Bananas enjoyed the pike push up as it reminded him of the prior days Valentines gift he gave his wife! The pain station burpee with a Turkish get up is now referred to as the Turpee (add that to the F3 lingo.)
Great job by all. A little disappointed that I was the only Go Rucker posting at Kevlar today…A couple of fashion faux pas today with Strikeout sporting a pair of Capri style tights under his shorts and Toxic wearing the yellow dish washing gloves for warmth.

Announcements

Saturday schedules on as usual.
Please keep Cottontails 6 month old daughter Emily in your prayers as she fights pneumonia.
Keep the Go Ruckers in mind as you are tucked in your fartsacks Saturday night seeing the snow fall gently from the warmth of your bedrooms!

Have a great weekend and thanks for posting today.

Lots of energy buzzing around CDS this morning as Kevlar saw a record attendance on a Friday F3 Area 51 workout. Some nerves were jingling as Bulldog laid enough cones to out to land a Boeing on the soccer field. The mosey to the church was interupted by Header and one other who must have hit snooze in the fartsack one too many times. Pax were made painfully aware that as tough as Tiger Rag appears to be by sporting short sleeves in cold weather his elbows are not as legendary. TR refused to choke it on the cement and remained in plank therefore will be rewarded with some Lubriderm and a set of elbow pads for next weeks endevours.
Great seeing the CMPD represented with FNG Brent Stanze nicknamed Wilbur taking some time away from fighting crime and keeping the peace within the pax.
Good work by all and have a great weekend!
