The PAX Circled up for the 5 principles and the disclaimer.
YHC then led the group in a warm-up round of the following, all with rucks:
20 Side Straddle Hops IC
20 Squats IC
10 Merkins IC
10 Squat Ruck Presses IC
Mosey to the bottom of Faith Hill, where two cones are set up across the snowy field. The PAX counted off by two’s.
On the start, 1’s sprinted with rucks approx 100 yards from cone to cone. When the 1’s were 1/2 way, 2’s began their sprint.
Once all PAX were at the opposite cone, repeato back to the start.
Bear Crawls & Crawl Bears w/rucks
PAX formed a line parallel with the bottom of Faith Hill
1’s Started a Bear Crawl up Faith Hill, with instructions to Crawl Bear back down. When 1’s were 1/2 way up, 2’s began their ascent of the same. The staggered start all sounded like a good idea to YHC until 1’s and 2’s met going opposite directions.
The PAX dropped their rucks and were asked to pair up with another close in size. YHC demonstrated a fireman’s carry by wisely choosing one of the lightest PAX. The option was given to either Fireman carry or piggyback, and the task would be to carry from the start cone to the opposite cone and back, trading places when necessary.
The PAX were split into three groups and lined up at the start cone. YHC instructed that they reach between their own legs and grab the hand of the PAX behind them for an elephant walk. The suspected uncomfortable moment became reality. The PAX Elephant walked the length of the field, and reversed 1/2 way back, where YHC wrongly thought it would be a good idea to try out “Human Tank Tracks” which he discovered just the niight before on the GORUCK Tough facebook page.
While still in “Elephant formation” the front PAX did a somersault with the trailing PAX stepping forward and following suit, rolling towards the finish line like a tank tread….except instead it was more like a bad men’s twister game, with Splinter being on the receiving end of a Mailman crotch/forehead encounter.
After a quick time check, the PAX again circled up. This time for some BLIMPS (Burpees, Lunges, Imperial Walkers, Merkins, Plank Jacks, Squats)
All exercises performed In Cadence and with rucks
Burpees x 5
Lunges x 10 each leg
Imperial Walkers x 15 each leg
Merkins x 20
Plank Jacks x 25
Squats x 30
Mosey to the top of the hill for the COT.
Sideshow was the six. He was EH’d by Bagels, and made his F3 debut on July 1, 2017. His name was thrown out by “some wiseguy” (Colonel?) when he said he knew how to juggle. Sideshow finds that his F3 brothers always bring fresh ideas, great attitudes, and set a good example that he uses to launch himself in to a great day and into a better person.
YHC closed it out with the BOM and thanks for these brothers.
