The BackBlast:


The Fourth of July was upon us, and with this being F3 Fort Collins’s First Holiday beatdown, there was no better time than to concoct and dispense a beatdown so ferocious, the PAX would walk away remembering 07/04/2020.

As YHC pulled into the parking lot at the #AO, a number of friendlies were present for a hot air balloon launch.  No worry.  YHC called an audible for a new location, planted the #shovelFlag nearby, dispensed the disclaimer, and got us under way, up the hill into the school parking lot for some…


  • SSH x 25 (IC)
  • CH Squat x 15 (IC)
  • Sun Gods x 10 (IC) (wind; unwind)
  • Air Squared x 15 (IC)*

The Thang:

The Thang was simple in theory, but very challenging in execution.  Each PAX was given a 20 lb coupon (courtesy of YHC) to use during the workout (and keep after) to use as a #battleBuddy.

We were required to carry our #battleBuddy with us at all times, and perform the following routine.

  1. 10 Burpees + 10 Thrusters (with #battleBuddy), run 100 yards, 50 Merkins, run back
  2. 9 Burpees + 11 Thrusters, run 90 yards, 50 Squats, run back
  3. 8 Burpees + 12 Thrusters, run 80 yards, 50 American Hammers, run back
  4. 7 Burpees + 13 Thrusters, run 70 yards, 50 Mtn. Climbers, run back
  5. 6 Burpees + 14 Thrusters, run 60 yards, 50 SSH, run back
  6. 5 Burpees + 15 Thrusters, run 50 yards, 50 LBC, run back
  7. 4 Burpees + 16 Thrusters, run 40 yards, 50 Plank Jacks, run back
  8. 3 Burpees + 17 Thrusters, run 30 yards, 50 LSF, run back
  9. 2 Burpees + 18 Thrusters, run 20 yards, 50 Air Squared, run back
  10. 1 Burpee + 19 Thrusters, run 10 yards, 50 Parker Peters, run back

Rinse and Repeat**

After we’d all made it through at least one round, YHC called for Omaha, we carried our #battleBuddies back to the #shovelFlag, and circled for some…


  • 10 ct. Body Destroyers***
  • 20 American Hammers (with #battleBuddy)****
