The Beast On The Frozen Tundra

The Beast On The Frozen Tundra

Wow it was cold this morning, but 17 of the faithful pulled themselves from the comfort of the warm fartsack to put a proper #downPAINment on the day on the frozen tundra!

The Thang:

Mosey to the South Parking Lot for a brief COP:

SSH x 20

Imperial Walkers x 20

Mt Climbers x 20

Mosey to the entrance 4 hill for some hillwork:

Round 1) Lunge Walk down, Backwards Lunge Walk back up (Crowd Pleaser), 30 Squats at the top and plank when done.

Round 2) Sprint down, Bear Crawl Up, 30 Carolina Dry Docks at the top and plank when done.

Round 3) Sprint down, Sprint back Up, 15 Burpees at the top.

Line-up for Indian Run around the parking lot picking up 4 cones continuing on to the soccer pitches.  Bug Eater (still at this point) lead the pax in Prarie Fire Mary while YHC places the cones 20 yards apart.

The Beast (extended 40 min version): Sprint to each cone and perform 6 of exercise called unless an audible for a larger number at each cone (3 cones down & 3 back).  We did so many rounds of The Beast this morning I’m going to try to recall to the best of YHC’s recollection:

 1) Merkins

2) Jump Squats

3) Carolina Dry Docks

4) Sister Mary Catherines

5) Merkins

6) Squats

7) LBCs

8) Carolina Dry Docks

9) Lunges

10) Lunge Walk to each cone w/ Merkins

11) Bear Crawl to each cone w/ 10 LBCs

12) Diamond Merkins

13) LBCs

14) And we did several other exercises I can’t recall off hand.

Mosey over to the picnic table benches next to the kitty litter for as many sets as you can get in during time remaing of: 20 Dips, 20 Jump Ups/Ste Ups, 10 Derkins, 40 LBCs.

Run it back to the shovel flag for COT


It was down right cold this morning to the point that the soccer pitches were literally frozen with the remaining rain soaked soil and dew.  If you didn’t have a good pair of gloves on in the gloom today your fingers were hating life!  Great group of guys today that usually post at various different Saturday workouts.  Strong work by all!  Especially Lobster Roll and Uncle Leo as they continually blew the pax away during The Beast!

There may have to be a rename in order for our lovable Nebraskan friend.  All through The Beast workout it sounded like we had either a Bug “Zapper” or a Bug “Fogger” rather than a Bug Eater.  He punched his card so many times eating bean burritos last night that he gets a free one every day this week!  No wonder everyone kept moving farther away from you brother!  We kid because we love!  And Kotters to our brother Cheese Curd as it was great to see you out in the gloom today.

Great showing and support at the Ft. Mill Convergence and the Joe Davis 5k today.  The results are in for the Joe Davis 5k and several of our Area51 pax placed in their age brackets and many more had great times for the 5k.  Be on the lookout for that Backblast.


Sign up for the Lone Survivor movie private F3 Area51 showing for Friday night 1/10/14.  Make sure to bring cash as they won’t be accepting debit or credit cards for the combined movie ticket and our private booking fee.  Sat 1/11/14 we will perform The Murph at all Area 51 workouts.  Day Zero and The Rock will converge and launch from The Rock for the workout.

Until Next Time
