Backblast #086 – Spartan with a Twist

It was a cold and breezy morning ITG (in the gloom) and the PAX got together for a late week beat down.  The word of the day was hard work. 

“There is no substitute for hard work.  Gimmicks and the easy way never get results.” – Coach Konnie (Hasselhoff’s high school wrestling coach)

The Thang:

We gathered at the GRCC track for a good old fashioned short Spartan with a few little twists.  The running amount was the same, however instead of merkins the PAX did a variety of coupons exercises.

Exercises included:

  • Merkins on coupon

  • Goblet squats

  • Curls

  • Upright rows

  • Overhead tri-cep extensions

  • Calf raises with coupon

  • BBS with coupon

  • American Hammer with coupon

  • Blockees

  • Derkin with feet on coupon

Count-O-Rama | Name-O-Rama


  • Bullwinkle has the Q on Saturday

  • Kraut is the Q for purchasing F3 attire

Keep it real,
