The Thang:

Mosey on to different field. Q asks everyone for their coupons. PAX run back to the vehicles to grab said coupons (rucks and 1 sandbag; just enough for each PAX).

Started off with the Beep Test/Highlander

All PAX at the start area, run 75ish feet then run back before the timer goes off. If you don’t beat the timer, you complete an exercise of the Q’s choice.  Started with 30 seconds, no sweat. 25 seconds, meh. 20 seconds, run a smidge faster. 15 seconds, getting closer. 10 seconds, run or you gonna lose. No PAX could be the 10 second timer, so 25 Merkins for all. Tried again for 15 seconds and all PAX made it in the nick of time.

Next we used our lovely coupons for No Rest For The Weary Pathfinder Workout.

15x Merkins

15x Ruck Lat Pull Overs

10x Ruck Swings

15x Thrusters

15x Alternating Stationary Forward Lunges

10x Squat Jumps

15x Shoulder Taps

15x Side to Side Plank

10x Spiderman Merkins

Repeat for a total of 3x

After this PAX laid on the ground in a circle, shoulder to shoulder and passed the 60lb sandbag around. When not passing sandbag, complete flutter kicks.

And it wouldn’t be a Gump Q without another quick run around the field to complete today’s beatdown.


Plank while PAX count off to 60

American Hammers (unsure of total, but probably 11!)
