Partner Work Without the Partner

Partner Work Without the Partner

3 PAX rang in the new year in style at Arsenal this morning, one of whom (myself) still mildly hungover from NYE festivities.  Grabbed the ruck sack and away we mosey-d to the football field.

The Thang

YHC planned a partner workout for the ages, one to tell your grandchildren about, however with just a trio of PAX, YHC was forced to call a Peyton Manning-esque audible.  The outcome you ask?  Each PAX was forced to complete a smoke show of a workout originally designed for two!

Each PAX grabbed a tire and lined it up in the end zone.  Commenced to complete a Ladder (1-1, 2-2, 3-3, etc.) up to 10 and back down again of tire flips and merkins.  After this, we used the hill behind the goalpost to complete a round of 7s (merkins and squats).  With one bag between the 3 of us, we were to take turns lugging it up and down the hill during our 7s (although Atlas shouldered most of the load).  After 7s were complete, we took a lap to the opposite end zone and back.  We then completed another round of Ladders, this time consisting of tire flips mixed with squats.  By this point, it was time to return the tires and mosey back to launch.


YHC concocted a workout more appropriate for an hour bootcamp.  Ran out of time before we could complete the 3rd round of Ladders (although probably a good thing considering burpees were on-tap for that one).  I was all excited to test out the new ruck sack I bought, but Atlas and Madame T ended up having to carry it more that I did, thanks for helping pick up my slack fellas.  Having just started this past summer, I’m excited to begin my first full calendar year of F3.  I’m looking forward to getting faster, stronger, better.  Thank you to everyone for motivating me to get after it.  Truly grateful.  Happy 2020, see you in the gloom!
