  • YHC arrived with 5 minutes to spare to find only Hammer in the parking lot. It was looking like it would be only to 2 of us until the PAX started to roll.

  • Nemo picked the wrong day for the muscle shirt thinking we’d be on pavement for the workout because it was heavy day. He sported quite the farmer’s tan BTW.

  • There was Q mutiny when YHC called for the PAX with the 40# sandbags to swap it for a 60# sandbag. Deep Dish was not having it.
  • Marlin was killing it out there but will be shopping Amazon for new ring.

We learned that that Header used to rock not only a tail but a mullet as well. He claims all evidence was destroyed, allegedly.

It was great returning to #Peak51, a great AO with a such a solid group of PAX. YHC is always glad to Q, Sensei and Lois have Peak 51 going strong.

Welcome site FNG Pop Tart who was the official counter during Jack Webb.

There were some groans from the PAX when YHC kicked the workout with the burpeee ladder, something to the effect that it’s a moderate workout and the burpees.

The tunnel of love was a real crowd pleaser, the PAX got their monies worth, you’re welcome.

Pop Tart is quite adept at bear crawls, and was #LarryBird each round.

Glad to Sensei and Slim Fast head out for the pre-run while Dora and I took off for the pre-ruck.

  • LBCs x 20
  • Heels to Heaven x 10

Moleskinny:

  • Strong effort by the PAX, looked like we dodged the cold rain this morning. Although it was cold, we worked up a sweat.
  • Kudos to Hoover and Voodoo on the pre-ruck, and Purell on the pre-run.
  • The Sandbag Murph, with partners, looked good on paper but that was a grind. The mumblechatter was low while the PAX was getting after it. We’ve done that at a ruck workout before, and never completed individually so YHC thought we might be able to with partners, which we did.
  • YHC caught a bit of slack from the PAX during the Cadre Roony WOD sampler for the overhead claps. Honestly, they’re not as embarrassing as monkey humpers. As the name infers, the WOD is in honor of  Cadre Roony, a GORUCK Cadre battling cancer. He’s done a ton of fundraising for cancer with his Snowdrop Lights, before being diagnosed himself in September. The full WOD with ruck is:
    • 75 Mountain Climbers (4 count)
    • 75 Squats (Tough weight)
    • 200M Ruck
    • 75 Flutter Kicks (4 count)
    • 75 Overhead Arm Claps (4 count)
  • Gummy looked strong carrying the 80 lb sandbag to the start point. His mumblechatter game was strong as usual. There was much chatter on YHC’s cadence count on merkins, and which light pole we were running to during the Sandbag Murph evolution. .
  • Brushback is site Q for Anvil, news is slowly making its way around A51 apparently.
  • Thanks to Flipper for the use of his sandbags which have taken permanent residence at Purell’s house.
  • Mcgee wasn’t there to promote WAMRAP.
  • Mermaid commented during Mary that we hadn’t done any burpees, a staple of his, so 10 OYO. You’re welcome.
  • Good seeing Mermaid’s twin Slow Roll again.
  • Wolfman and Mall Cop holding each other accountable, as they post together most of the times, making sure the other keeps posting, #ISI.
  • We covered 2.5 miles, a little under the recommended 3 miles per the Rock Zero bylaws. YHC would’ve called for another lap around the church, which would’ve put us at around 3 miles, buy my legs were not having it after the Sandbag Murph.
  • YHC is coming up on 6 years with F3, I’m thankful and blessed for the friendships forged with my F3 brothers. I’m always amazed at the support we have for one another and it’s definitely more than a workout. Keep it up, and keep giving it away.
  • Thanks to Hoover, Boerewors, and Flipper for the opportunity to lead and please sound off with any #Mumble chatter.

Moleskinny:

  • Voodoo pinged YHC the other day asking if I wanted to Q and he said it was open to all gear, not just kettlebells, so the first ruck workout at #F3Meathead was born.
  • The PAX was curious about the pile of rucks and sandbags piled in the middle of the parking lot. Young Love said something to the effect of “That’s a lot of money in Codura”.
  • YHC pulled into the parking lot and didn’t see and pre-running, BRR is over, back to meat and potatoes and bootcamps.
  • Good to see Fletch and Purell back at #F3Meathead, Devil’s turn is out of the rotation until next summer.
  • YHC kept the weinke simple, but actually had to write this one out, and kept to the plan much to my surprise. Although I broke the cardinal rule of 0.0 since we hit a mile during the workout. You’re welcome.
  • YHC was about to go to bed when I realized I needed to make a playlist for workout as music is a staple at #F3Meathead, which always includes some AC/DC
  • Bulldog mentioned the workout was a way to may rucking great again in Area 51, why not?
  • YHC neglected to swap my Light bricks for my Tough bricks, so some folks got a rest with a lighter ruck on some reps.
  • Thanks to Voodoo and Witch Doctor for the opportunity to lead and please sound off with any #Mumble chatter.

Casualty Medley For The Ruck of It

21 of Area 51’s finest PAX, including 2 FNGs, made the right choice and posted at Rock Zero for their daily #DownPAINment.

COP:

  • SSH x 20
  • Merkins x 10
  • IW x 20
  • Squats x 20
  • Windmill x 20

The Thang:

Take a warmup lap around the parking lot then head back to the cars, grab the rucks and sandbags and mosey over the soccer fields. Partner up for the following:

Partner 1 buddy carries Partner 2 across the field. Partner 1 then returns to the side of the field to pick up a ruck or sandbag then carries them to stopping at the first cone to do 10 burpees. He then proceeds to the next cone and performs 10 burpees, then runs to to Partner 2. Partner 2 does Mary exercise while Partner does the work. Flapjack.  The PAX does Mary until the six gets in.

Staying with the same partner, drag your partner half way across the field, flap jack, then run with your partner to the other side of the field.

Head back to the side of the field with the rucks and sandbags and staying with your partner, Partner 1 performs called exercise with the ruck or sandbag while Partner 2 runs the length of the field. Flapjack.

  • Upright rows
  • Curls
  • Squats

Gather the sandbags/coupons and head back to the  start point to deposit the coupons and then we were off to the front of the church.

Choose a lifting rock for some more arm work, two rounds of curls, tricep extensions, and overhead presses. We deposited the rocks from where we found them, not at all close to there exact resetting place.

A quick check of the watch and YHC noticed we had some time left for Runstopper’s old friend Mr. Jack Webb. YHC requested Runstopper take the lead to introduce Mr. Webb properly to our FNGs and he so he did up to 8.  Afte that we moseyed back to the start point for some much needed Mary.

Mary:

  • Flutter Kicks x 20
  • LBCs x 23

Moleskinny:

  • Strong effort by the PAX on a warm, humid day in Charlotte, hello summer. The PAX gave YHC some grief during COP, but it’s welcomed.
  • We covered 2.2 miles, under the recommended 3 miles per the Rock Zero bylaws, but Flipper was ok with it.
  • #Kotters to Flipper following two weeks traversing Europe.
  • The Casualty Medley, with the partner carries and partner drags, was inspired by the welcome party at the Bragg Heavy this year where we lost GRT Jerome Gonzalez, R.I.P. Cadre Danny Stokes (F3 Linus) included this as our PT test during Grow Ruck 08 in Houston and YHC has been looking for an opportunity to include this in an F3 workout. Partner carries, drags, burpeess, and coupons are all unsavory and even more so when grouped together. The PAX #EmbracedTheSuck and got after it.
  • Runstopper was #LarryBird during the Casualty Medley crushing his burpees.
  • Thanks Private Benjamin for carrying my six this morning, Clydesdales are not an easy carry. Not sure who would’ve carried Hoover.
  • YHC had some more GORUCK staples such as the tunnel of love but the landscaping crew looked like they wanted to get to work so we moved on.
  • Stone Cold recommended North Face but YHC politely declined.
  • YHC couldn’t resist asking Runstopper to Q Jack Webb, he’s an angry Q, all business.
  • Nice job High Tide for the solo 4 mile pre-run, he planned for 6 but 4 was plenty. He looked a little lighter without his weight vest.
  • Spackler and Bounce seemed to enjoy the #mumblechatter during COP, their Imperial Walker form was on point. Semi-Gloss was absent.
  • Welcome Rosettta and Vuvuzela visting us from South Africa who were EH’d by Stone Cold. They were made right at home with their fellow countrymen Boerewors and Dingo.
  • We were joined half-way through the workout by Bugeater and Leprechaun who doubled down with Leprechaun’s Q at Davinci this morning. Strong! Bugeater said they were passing by so why not?
  • Hammer was sporting long sleeves this morning anticipated us being on the grass, and wanting to avoid fire ants.
  • Great seeing 49er again, second time this week, #Kottters.
  • We caught up with Philmont at Coffeteria, who’s making a plant-based comeback. He posted at Day Zero all by himself, it’s been a while sine Day Zero (RIP) closed it’s doors but keep coming out brother.
  • Thanks to Boerewors and Flipper for the opportunity to lead and please sound off with any #Mumble chatter.

  • We completed a “Mini-Murph” with the pull-ups, push-ups, squats, and running. I’ll be participating in an GORUCK Light event this weekend, Operation Redwings, which will honor those lost during that mission including Lt. Michael Murphy. Lt. Murphy was graduate of my alma matter, Patchogue-Medford High School Class of 1994, for which they’ve renamed the campus in his honor. A little more information on Lt. Murphy below.
    • “Michael Patrick “Murph” Murphy (7 May 1976 – 28 June 2005) was a United States Navy SEAL officer who was awarded the U.S. military’s highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his actions during the War in Afghanistan. He was the first member of the U.S. Navy to receive the award since the Vietnam War. His other posthumous awards include the Silver Star Medal (which was later upgraded to the Medal of Honor) and the Purple Heart. Michael Murphy was born and raised in Suffolk County, New York. He graduated from Pennsylvania State University with honors and dual degrees in political science and psychology. After college he accepted a commission in the United States Navy and became a United States Navy SEAL in July 2002. After participating in several War on Terrorism missions, he was killed on 28 June 2005, after his team was compromised and surrounded by Taliban forces near Asadabad, AfghanistanThe U.S. Navy ship, the USS Michael Murphy, and several civilian and military buildings have been named in his honor.”
  • The tunnel of love was a crowd favorite, a little GORUCK style.
  • Swiss Miss was #LarryBird most of the workout, no surprise he’s one of the fittest dudes on Area 51.
  • Lois has has gotten strong and slim. He’s also quite the trivia affecianado and would be quite handy at trivia night.
  • Slim Fast was his usual encouraging and positive self. He’s a true #HIM in Area 51, just post to Mountain Goat and you’ll see why.
  • Dora was out there pushing it, a little Broga at Gumby yesterday goes a long way.
  • YHC learned Snoopy is a beach volleyball player, #TopGun anyone?
  • Happy was out there pushing it through injury, nice job.
  • Good seeing Gulluah out there again, with the Peak 51 regulars.
  • Compliance, Bernie, and Madoff have all gotten much stronger than their first post, #LarryBirds out there.
  • Peak 51 is one of YHC’s favorite AOs, awesome PAX and great energy whenever I post there.
