Archives: the backblast took longer than the workout.

  • When: 20180125
  • QIC: Hugo
  • The PAX: Scully, Gracie, Cowboy, Hugo

    4 PAX arrived ready to ruck on a sweatshirt kinda morning. YHCs VQ, which I started off proving that counting  is not my strong suit. The day went down hill from there, so stay tuned, this is my first blackblast, so I am fairly confident it wont go as planned.



    Air Squats 25 IC

    Side Straddle Hops 25 IC

    Merkins 25 IC

    Arm Circles 25 IC

    Imperial Walkers 25 IC



    Skip the stairs, Ruck up the hill on the steady incline to the parking lot side stairs.

    1st stop: 20 Air Squats on the fence poles.

    Ruck over to the long pine of the hill.

    20 Chest slaps ( extended push up position, alternating chest slaps)

    Sprint (kinda) up the hill

    2 X 25 m bear crawls

    Rucked over to the main stairs

    Removed the rucks for:

    Ruck Overhead Presses

    Ruck Upright Rows

    Ruck Bench Press

    Rucked out to independence and back.

    All completed  with the ‘team weight’ 10 lb mace bell in tow.


    Back in time for


    Countarama, Namearama, and Ball of Man


    Shared my favorite verse Romans 12:12

    Rejoice in hope, be patient in affliction, be persistent in prayer.

    (Not suprisingly all things I need to work on)


    Finally a quote from Marcus Aurelius:

    The Happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts: therefore guard accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature.

    (or something like that)


    Thanks Everybody.
