Great work by all of the Pax today.  Coach Mic Check and YHC were really excited to put this one on and we greatly appreciated everyone’s patience while we explained new exercises.

The inflextion in Coach Mic Check’s voice made it very difficult to tell when the Mac Tar Jai cadence was finished.  Some pax stopped early, even more lost count, all of them were confused.

YHC wasn’t sure how well the the car push was going to work.  Given the fact that this blast isn’t being posted from a body shop, we’ll chalk it up as a success.

The QB/WR/DB competition was a lot of fun.  It’s pretty apparent that a lot of the pax used to spend some time on the gridiron back in the day.  It was also apparent, that “back in the day” was a looooonng time ago for some of them.  #leatherhelmets


The 707 class of GORUCK will be departing on their journey at 10 PM on Friday.  Location TBA.

Chipotle(FTQ) and Mic Check will be Qing next week.  It’s going to hurt.

There are a ton of pax that frequent The Maul and are ready to step up to Q a half or a whole workout.  Reach out to Mic Check or YHC and we will get you on the calendar.

New 3rd F workout starting at the Panera on Carmel and Hwy 51 after Centurion.

Sound off in the comments if YHC missed any announcements.

I echo MM and say thank you to the Pax for coming out and really getting into the spirit of the workout. The competitive juices were flowing and guys were rooting each other on especially during the passing drill. When a great pass or catch was made you heard cheers, conversely you heard moans when someone threw a duck or a guy had stone hands. Look for future football workouts at The Maul in the fall and perhaps a Superbowl edition.

A couple of highlights:
The Worm had the play of the day with an unexpected double move that resulted in an easy 30 yard TD pass and brought a big roar from the Pax.

Loogie didn’t let the pavement stop him from diving headfirst to bat down a pass.

Crabcake apparently doesn’t like to catch the ball on the first try; he juggled it
around for 15 yards, and then hauled it in.

Add a comment with any other star players you may have seen. If you don’t have a website log in, shoot me an email.

Mic Check’s hard count had some of us jumping offside/false starting…#preseasonmistakes
Methinks next time we should turn the car off during the push so not to poison the pax #noxiousfumes
Great workout gents, t-claps to Mic Check and Mighty Mite
Frehley’s Comet definitely had the look of a former gridiron player
And The Witness left me three steps back during passing drills #triangularwheelDB

This was a great workout was a lot of fun! T-Claps for the creativity of Mic Check and Mighty Mite, looking forward to the next edition. Just wondering if Fish Taco is still picking pebbles and ashpalt out of his arms as he took a spill while playing DB? Good luck and have fun at the 707 Goruck Class this Friday Fish Taco!

The Worm has not revealed this info to many of the pax, but he is a former college football and rugby player. Still has the skills.

Also, we are fortunate no one called police to report a bunch of guys pushing a car out of the parking lot at 5:45am.
