The BackBlast:


It was a brisk, dark morning in the gloom. Very little mumble chatter this morning from the PAX. Several PAX also rolling in hot at the last minute. Disclaimer noted.


Started off with a lap around the lot to let the PAX strolling in late to catch up.

Bat Wings – 10 each (IC)

X-Jumps – 10 (IC)

Squat Crunches – 11 (IC)*

The Thang:

Mosey on up to the top of the baseball fields for The Thang Part 1**

Chicken Peckers – 30 seconds. (BTTW with shoulder taps)

Patty Cake Merkins – partner up for 40 of these babies. After the first down partners slap Right hands, after the second down partners slap Left hands.

Box Jumps – 35

Next PAX moseyed on to the baseball field for some Field of Dreams.

PAX numbered off in 3’s and headed out to the bases. 1’s – 1st base, 2’s – 2nd base, 3’s – 3rd base. The Q started us off at home base with 15 Burpees then ran to 1st Base to have them run back to Home Base for 15 Burpees. After completing these, PAX ran to 2nd Base to relieve this group, and so on.

1st Base – Power Jacks

2nd Base – Bulgarian Ball Busters

3rd Base – Plank Kick-Ups

After much confusion, PAX regrouped for a rinse and repeat. Q had PAX count off by 4’s this time. There was so much mumble chatter about what to do next, but the Q heard loud and clear, “let’s just all rotate after Burpees”. So once PAX completed the burpees at Home Base, they ran to 1st, and each group moved to the next base until all PAX completed 15 Burpees. Phew, thanks for whoever suggested that!***

With several minutes to spare, the Q had everyone complete an Indian Run around the park back to the shovel flag.


Side Plank with Crunch + Leg Raises – 10 each side (IC)

Ski Abs – 10 (IC)

American Hammers – 15 (IC)


Downhill asked for prayer regarding struggles with the public school system.

Gump’s dad in surgery to have part of his lung removed to test for cancer.

Naked Man Moleskin:

*The Q lost count already, meant to do 10.

**Q forgot his phone for the music. Would’ve made this a bit more “fun”.

***The field of dreams looked much better on paper. A little harder to execute, but after the first round, we figured it out.
