Backblast #093 – C-A-L-D-E-R


With a very gloomy outlook in the forecast, YHC decided that the best approach would be a routine workout.

AO – Calder Plaza

32 Degrees, light mist

[0530 – Core Principles recited.  Disclaimer given to 8 PAX – Bald Eagle, Mad Cow, Dungeon Master, Miss Daisy, Hasselhoff, Basic Bro, Tiny Tom, and Kraut (QIC).



25 SSH

10 Cherry Pickers w/ Back Clap

2 Capri Laps around La Grande Vitesse


The Thang

YHC created a special routine in honor of the AO – CALDER 616.  Calder Plaza is where we meet on Wednesdays, and 616 is the area code for Grand Rapids. The Pax paired up, with one of them doing reps of the exercise while the other completed a lap around the plaza.  The teams alternated until all 616 reps were completed.  Start over if you finish early.

C – Coupon Curls, 102 Reps

A – Alternating Lunges with coupon, 102 Each Leg

L – LBC with coupon, 102 reps based on a four count

D – Deadlifts with coupon, 102 reps

E – Elf on the Shelf with coupon, 102 reps each side

R – Rows with coupon, 106 reps.

Rinse and Repeat as necessary until the end.  Everyone finished! 

Cool down lap and a brief stretching session.

Many thanks to the HIM who made good use of this hour in the Gloom.



Be friendly!  As a group of HIM F3 can have people with differing opinions.

Gear Order should go live this week.

Much discussion about Rucking.


Kraut – Out.
