The Drill’s first attempt at Q was a strong effort. YHC thinks his military and police background makes him a natural for the cadence counts! The arm circles were surprisingly painful….and I know the Rucksters especially appreciated the Spartan Burpees, 8-count merkins and MCs.
The Ruck crew again appeared out of the foggy gloom as they prep for the Aug. 2nd challenge – strong work men. There is no ruck-friendly workout, is there?
What looked relatively innocuous on paper was apparently pretty brutal. 11’s with burpees and elbow plank jacks silenced the pax. Like a rookie Q or FNG – I yelled out “Viva” during the 11’s and Strange Brew rightly called me out on that. Is it ok to encourage the pax? Or let them suffer in silence? Perhaps a little of both – aye!
The hill work at entrance 4 of Rea Road was brutal, especially for the Rucksters. Bulldog’s suggestion of the backwards bear crawl was a gift to Radar…among others. #unsavory #sickandwrong
Few quick observations:
Udder can fly as evidenced by the smoking of his boots during the jailbreak. Nutter Butter apparently owns smoke boots as well.
An ailing Baracus came off the DL and pert-near spilled the merlot on a couple occasions
Our War Daddy – Matlock – added pain to pain – going with the “Shore’s Shoulders” during the arm circle segment of COP – strong work brother #missyouTheShore
Kotters to Baked Beans? Hadn’t seen you in a while brother; but then again – with 20 workouts in Area51 now….
