The BackBlast:

Fog rolled across the turf fields and humidity was at 3000% for this one. We crowdsourced warmups which included:

Side straddle hops, merkins, broga, and imperial walkers.

Kenny G lost a fight with his phone, and the PAX were treated to an impromptu Combine special that went something like this:

Blockwork

25x squat thrusts -> 10 yard lunges out and back (x2)

25x block swings -> 15 yard lunges out and back (x2)

25x windshield wipers -> 20 yard lunges out and back (x2)

25x curls -> 25 yard lunges out and back (x2)

Speedwork

We swept the fog out with some speedwork next.

50yd->40yd->30yd->20yd->10yd backpedal out and sprint back

Did a lap around the field with blocks in hand/over shoulders to prep for some more fun.

Teamwork

Partnered up for combined reps per team of 300 dips, 100 lateral step-ups, and 50 wall merkins.

One PAX did the reps while the other was awarded a choice of: 5yd lateral plank walks out and back OR 10yd bear crawl out and crawl bear back.

Closed with some abbreviated Mary.

Lifted up prayers for 8-Track’s grandmother-in-law as well as the family of Danny J. Prayed for the health and safe return home of PAX currently traveling.

Given I’ve been away for a few weeks, this felt a bit like a homecoming. Was honored to pick up the Q today for a group of guys that would do the same for me.
