Archives: Black Jack & Jill went up Ruck Hill

  • When:¬†20180201
  • QIC:¬†Gracie
  • The PAX: Scully, Cowboy, Gracie
  • 3 Pax rallied up at Ruck Hill at 0530 for another overly ambitious workout by YHC.

    WARMERAMA (all IC):
    Side-Straddle Hops
    Belly Busters
    Press-Press-Fling
    Abe-Vigodas
    Imperial Walkers

    Ruck up and…
    Sled Dog from the Rally Point to base of the main steps on Stink Hill.
    (Sled Dogging is when the Pax form a line and each one takes hold of the grab handle of the Ruck in front of him. Lead Dog gets to run as fast as he wants…)

    The THANG:
    BLACK JACK & JILL
    This is a variation of Black Jack – except after completing the first exercise you climb the hill. After the second you tumble back down.
    Main element consisted of:
    1 Pushup while wearing Ruck, Climb the Hill, Doff Ruck and 20 Cusak Big Boy Situps (Ruck held at full extension overhead), return to start.
    Next round is 2 Pushups and 19 BBSs.
    Rinse and Repeat until you get to 20 Situps and 1 BBS.

    Unfortunately (and here’s the overly ambitious part!) we ran out of time around 12 Rounds in (TBH, Scully was 12 rounds in… I was only at 10!).

    So with moments to spare we Sled Dogged back to the Flags and it was:
    Countarama
    Namerama
    BOM

    Ended with Proverbs 27:17
    As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

    Gracie out
