The BackBlast:

Eight met ITG as the rain cleared, but the fall winds were still threatening. I wanted to throw this mental and endurance challenge as YHC, Kipling and KennyG were one week out from a tough event…. this is what the workout looked like :


  • SSH
  • Mtn Climbers / Plank
  • Don Quixote
  • Abe Vagoda

Thang : 4 Laps / 4 Carries

  • Lap 1 : 1600m
    • BearHug
  • Lap 2 : 1200m
    • Suitcase Carry
  • Lap 2 : 800m
    • Rifle Carry
  • Lap 2 : 400m
    • BearCrawl / CrabWalk

Work until failure. When you have to stop or set your ruck down, run to start point and run back to your ruck, continue.

Ran short on time; several were beginning the rifle carry while YHC completed the BearHug and went on a mosey to collect the scattered group.

Endex : FlutterKicks.

: For this UniqueQ challenge, we’ve been challenged to speak on leadership. F3 provides an opportunity more than a workout group, but also opportunities to lead the group, a leadership incubator providing:

  • Opportunities to lead the guys
  • Opportunities to bring initiative and
  • Encouragement to bring that into our own families and communities.

Three things I’ve learned:

  • When falling, tuck your head and dive
  • You are responsible for what happens, and what fails to happen
  • If anything else fails, jst put your guys ahead of your own needs and care for them as you care for your own brother; when you make a decision with that in mind, you cannot fail.

Following the beatdown and COT, YHC, Kipling, KennyG and HackeySack added another hour for a straight ruck, and then joined the WreckCenter crew for coffeeteria. A solid morning effort

/Kodak out.
