The Q:

Southview High School


boot camp, Sylvania

Where it all started! Typical routine: warm-up with Merkins, stretching, side-straddle-hops, etc.  Then proceed to the track and/or field for running mixed with strength training.  Finish off with the C.O.P (circle of pain) for merkins, planks, ab work, supermans, etc.

SATURDAYS always followed up with 2nd F (fellowship) at local restaurant (changes periodically, they will announce location typically in the COT after the beatdown). Great opportunity to get to know members of F3 Toledo and refuel from the workout.

    The games continue…modify as needed. The intent was to test another group of the Toledo PAX against the first time established last weekend at the Fortress. But this scientific experiment was out of control parameters quickly due to the impressive number of HC’s this frigid winter morn. There are supposed to be 150% of the balls in each bucket as there are PAX that show up. So based on the HCs, YHC tried to get it close the night before. And then either add or subtract a few balls once we get the final PAX count in the opening circle….but the HCs kept coming and coming and coming! Special shutout to Kitty for letting me play with his balls too. Even between Kitty and myself, we did not have enough balls to satisfy the Toledo PAX. We had 37 post for this workout and 49 balls per bucket (a little over 32%). So instead of a collective push to 150%, we kicked out two intense rounds of 132%.

    In the Center of a about a 20 foot diameter circle was enough cinder blocks and ruck plates for each PAX to have their own coupon between 20 to 35 pounds. There were also 5 buckets filled with plastic ball pit balls. Each bucket was color coded. Each bucket had 150% more balls then PAX. About 30-40 yards outside of that circle were 5 stations in a star pattern with empty buckets.
    THE GOAL – Empty each bucket from the center by placing one ball at a time in the outer buckets.
    A.) The only way to take a ball from one the center buckets was complete 20 reps of the center circle workout for that round.
    B.) The only way to leave that ball in an outer buckets was perform the workout at the outer station.
    C.) Return the center and repeat
    D.) Must Complete each station AT LEAST once. After that you can choose what station you wanted to help empty.

    Stations – All but one you had to carry your coupon out to the station to perform the workout.
    1.) 10 Burpees or 20 Hand Release Merkins (The Fortress had 10 pull ups or 20 Australian Merkins)
    2.) Man Maker Burpees with your coupon
    3.) Bent over low Rows with your coupon
    4.) Side Walk Merkins with your coupon
    5.) Squat Thrusters with your coupon

    1.) 20 Curls in Center every time to grab a ball. This round was testing timing and getting PAX familiar with the “game”. (Approx 19 mins)
    2.) 20 Flutter Kicks (2 is 1) with Coupon above chest. This round was for timing. The PAX shaved more then 4 mins off and finished with an impressive 14:35 round.

    So I feel better about my mishap to explain the color coded buckets that were specific to each station last week at the Fortress. I felt like YHC really “dropped the ball” on explaining that element. So this week I took special precaution to actually label the stations with their color coded ball and carefully explain to not mix balls for each station. Well, guess what, they got mixed immediately again at the Fuse. A few PAX had a blast taking balls from where they wanted and distributed them as they pleased. Just goes to show, a man will do what he wants. But we learned again and round two was perfect.

    COR, NOR, Chew Toy was the 6. It was good to share his story up at our Northern outpost as he posts in the Burg more often. Prayers for Houdini’s wife, Landslide’s wife, Mater’s son, our active and fallen military, and many others.

    **Mole Skin** Bagels doesn’t like pink buckets, so he stomps on them into a million pieces. Cooter doesn’t like running so he gets angry and eats cinder blocks like Pac Man pellets.

    Always an Honor, Always My Pleasure,
