Shops at Fallen Timbers


boot camp, Maumee, Perrysburg

Boot camp style workout at the Shops at Fallen Timbers. Group will meet next to the movie theater. Easy access to the Wabash Cannonball Trail for some running or rucking. Also, plenty of blacktop to make use of, not to mention a little green space across from the theater.

    The Battlefield
    Tour de Battlefield: the best of the Battlefield

    PAX: Woodstock, Tumble, Isoceles, Lonzo, Houdini, Smoky, Landslide, Bongo, Shark Bait, Wall-E, Mercy (Q).

    Intro: 5 principles, mission, no FNGs.

    The Thang:

    The beatdown was a collection of great beatdowns that have been brought to the Battlefield since it was launched in March 2019. The backblasts that have been entered on this website are an incredible resource – a lot of creativity and a lot of hard workouts.

    The Q borrowed the overall approach from a Casper “Carmen San Diego” beatdown. Before moving on to the next movement, the Q read a riddle to the PAX, with the answer being who brought the Q. The beatdown was made up from pieces of beatdowns brought from Chew Toy, Stark, Jimmy Dean, Woodstock, and Gepetto.

    Riddle #1: You are missed dear squeaky bro, We will kick off this beatdown similar to the way you kicked off this AO.

    Chew Toy: Chew Toy brought station work for the first beatdown at the Battlefield. We truncated it:
    in cadence: 20 merkins, 20 flutter kicks, chain breakers,
    Partner carries down to sidewalk and back, switching up carrier/carried at sidewalk
    25 big boi situps OYO
    bear crawls down to sidewalk, mountain climbers in cadence, and dips on the benches.

    Finishing up the Chew Toy portion of the workout, we moseyed up to the Gap for the next riddle and portion.

    Riddle #2: A Perrysburg faithful sensitive to the Battlefield’s superiority, you took us shopping and destroyed us, we will reenact accordingly.

    Stark’s Department Store Dash.
    The idea is to do 5 reps of a chosen exercise at each storefront door. To add some competition and excitiment, the person who was first to the door was awarded 10 reps. We did merkins all the way down to Victoria’s Secret.

    We crossed the street and had our 3rd riddle

    Riddle #3: Visitor from the North, you didn’t disappoint. We will take bacon with our tacos, but we aren’t glad you joined.

    Jimmy Dean’s main street tacos
    At every flower pot, bench or trash cans, we did 5 reps of an exercise. Merkins, burpees, and squats were the chosen reps.

    Hitting the end of the mall, we cross the street and started going back where we came from. We switched back to Stark’s department store dash, and did 5 Lt Dans at each store front, the winner getting 10. This time, the sprinting to the next door was much harder.

    We moseyed back to the field where we started, for riddle #4.

    Riddle #4: This PAX brings workouts for the birds, his beatdowns aren’t for quitters. It’s not his size, his merkins are just quicker.

    Woodstock’s Champions don’t quit.

    Woodstock brought a Q that hit hard from beginning to end. I chose to use the sucide-thruster pyramid. 3 lines, run from the baseline to line #1 and back, doing 5 thrusters at the baseline every time.

    We finished up, pressed for time, we hit the parking lot and the 5th riddle.

    Riddle #5: This PAX wants you to serve, make it Cherry Street or wherever. He will bring the hard Q, usually requiring actions like a bear.

    Gepetto’s motor city shuffle: lunge, lunge, burpee, 5 merkin, 5 plank jack, frog hop. Continue hopping until it was time to call it.

    COT: COR, NOR, the 6 (Bongo) ANnouncements, prayer intentions.

    Winter Challenge 1/1, Convergence 1/11, Q School 1/18 with Klinger, Toledo mountain mentors.

    Prayer for an 11 year old boy who was just diagnosed with cancer, Woodstock’s father in law with cancer, and Landlside mentioned another battling cancer. Cancer Sucks.

    Thank you to all who showed, thank you to all those who have participated at the battlefield, thank you to those who have led.

    Pre-ruck at the Battlefield
    0530, 12/21/19

    PAX: Woodstock, Isoceles, Lonzo, Houdini, Smoky, Bongo, Shark Bait, Mercy

    A Selection finisher recently challenged F3 nation to a particular ruck workout, so we did it.

    8 men showed up early in the cold for 2 rounds of: 1 mile ruck with sandbag, 50 syncro situps with partner, 50 syncro step ups with partner, and 50 sandbag squats, work split with a partner.

    It was hard, and it took the entire time to finish. It was great to see the work all put in.
