The BackBlast:


It was a chilly morning at The Swanson. The sky was clear, the moon was bright and the Pax were ready for the beatdown, or so I thought.


24 SSH (IC)

24 Power Jacks (IC)

24 High Knees (IC)


The Thang:

Doracides: Dora’s evil twin sister with some modifications. 150 Merkins + 300 Globe Jumps

Pax pair up; Pax 1 does AMRAP while Pax 2 runs to edge of parking lot, completes 1 Burpee, runs to other edge of parking lot on the outside of the lot, completes 2 Burpees, then runs back to Pax 1 to complete 3 Burpees. Pax then switch to continue reps until all reps complete.

This was a bit challenging for all, including the Q, but Pax kicked butt and worked hard to get ‘er done.

Blue Falcon: Pax were split into 2 teams, given 30ish seconds to come up with their own workout, then given 3 minutes to complete. The teams switched workouts and were given another 3 minutes to complete the other teams workout. Loser got to do 20 Burpees OYO, but the Q just decided everyone should do them. Because who doesn’t love Burpees after a good beatdown.

Not done yet!

Billy Run: Pax moseyed around park and headed back towards shovel flag. At the last light all Pax gave AYG back for 6MOM.


24 LBCs (IC)

24 Little Mermaids (IC)

24 American Hammers (IC)


No prayer requests today. Ditka reminded PAX of next Monday’s Murph session & closing Drop Trout for a time.

Naked Man Moleskin:

Q thought it would be a great idea to add a new exercise for warm-o-rama (power jacks). But after 24 of these, it felt a little like the workout had begun before the Pax actually got to warm up. Q may have got a little gump ho with that one. 😉
