The BackBlast:


A nice, chilly morning greeted the PAX and we were all ready to work! YHC had a solid Part 1 Thang and wasn’t sure what kind of shape PAX were in. PAX looked suspiciously in shape…Mission statement was announced, disclaimers were made known and PAX moseyed off for…


A light jog to start the morning! YHC hadn’t intended to go too far, however mumblechatter was reasonable and we went a little farther than planned. Still, PAX were then circled up for:

SSH – IC x 15

Merkins – OMD x 15

Copper Head Squats – IC x 15

Mountain Climbers – IC x 15

Moseyed back to the parking lot for…

The Thang:

3 Rounds OYO:

10 Burpees

15 Jump Squats

10 Spiderman Merkins*

15 Dry Docks

20 Reverse Lunges

As a group, PAX performed 2 rounds of:

12 Bird Dogs

12 American Hammers

12 Freddie Mercuries

YHC looked at his watch and we had plenty of time for more fun! So, out came the F3 Deck of Cards. In rotation PAX pulled a single card. 1st card named the exercise, 2nd card named the reps. All proceeded uneventfully** with PAX dutifully ripping off exercise after exercise, until Ditka pulled the dreaded 200M sprint…and Go Blue! pulled a 10***. PAX eye-balled the length of the parking lot as a fair 200 M****.

YHC called Omaha after a couple more rounds and we proceeded to the flag for…


Low Dolly – IC x 10

Freddie Mercuries – IC x 10

American Hammers – IC x 10


YHC talked a little more deeply about our soul coming from God and when we speak to God we should be looking within and working on making ourselves better men, fathers, husbands!

Naked Man Moleskin:

* Original call-out was a Peter Parker but YHC demonstrated a spiderman Merkin…do as I do, not as I say!

** Not sure PAX ever landed on a proper Squat Thrust, so PAX made up what looked right.

*** YHC wasn’t wearing glasses and claimed a 2 was pulled. They KINDA look similar!!

**** Truth be told, that parking lot is probably 100 M. Didn’t matter, PAX were gassed!
