The Gauntlet Part Deux

AO: Starting Line

When: 02/25/2023

QIC: Sirmixalot

PAX (9): Better Call Saul, Closets closets closets, Dunshire, Janeway, Komrad, Script Kiddie, Suarez, Boss Baby, Rocket


After round one of the Gauntlet a week or two ago several of the pax were “clamoring” for a repeat on a Saturday. So YHC obliged and made it a bit longer. I will say it made me glad to hear that several pax found it much more difficult than they expected. It is deceptively difficult. This (and variations of it) will go into the regular rotation

The Thang:

Obstacles were as follows

  1. At the pull up bar – 10 pull ups or chin ups (assist band provided if needed)
  2. Flip the tire from the first set of cones to the next and then back
  3. Murder bunnies for the next set of cones down and back
  4. Body bag drag – 80 lb sandbag drag down and back
  5. 40 lb sandbag lunge walk down and back
  6. Pick up the kettlebell and do either 10 KB swings or Deadlifts (Pax Choice)
  7. Run to the back of the skate ramp and climb up and over the railing
  8. Exit the skate ramp and pick up the two cinders and farmer’s carry them to the end of the skate park and back
  9. move back to the track and the pull up bar and complete one lap around the smaller loop of track ending back at the pull up bar.

Repeat until time.


YHC shared an acceleration point about consistency. It is one of, if not the single most important factor in our fitness, work, and family leadership. Showing up again and again is important. The military phrase “accuracy through volume” is a helpful idea. If we just put enough rounds down range we will hit the target.
