YHC has been really excited to launch a series of ruck BDs at the Gladiator. I’d been planning this one for a while and even had a rain plan ready. Now where are my HCs? Hmmmmmmm

As it turned out, YHC pulled in to ERP at about 0527 to find DC2 waiting. Unfortunately, no one else would be joining us today. Onward


Start out in plank position at or near the flag location. Discuss the core principles of F3.

Ruck behind the rec center to the splash pad parking lot. Ruck backwards for a bit. Take the far entrance to the field.

The Thang:

Yesterday (5/2) would have been my Dad’s 71st birthday. This workout included 4 exercises that he enjoyed doing. OK, so he never mentioned he enjoyed mercans, but at least it’s not burpees?

2 rounds:

  • 71 mercans
  • 71 chest press
  • 71 squats
  • 71 curls
  • 400m ruck (to the opposite line and back, twice)

We had a bit of time left on the clock, so lunged up to the bottom of the hill to the parking lot. Ruck backwards up the hill. Take a long loop around the parking lot, backwards up the hill again. I thought DC2 would call some American Hammers, but instead we rucked a bit more to hit 45 minutes.


Prayers for us to be consistent and be better leaders

Naked-Man Moleskin:

This one meant a lot to me. It wasn’t easy. Thanks DC2 for doing the hard thing and showing up
