BackBlast #083 – Hill Sprints & Tree Carrying

Four Corners – The pax separated into 4 groups of 4 at cones that had been placed approximately 25 yards apart. Corner #1 – 5 Burpees, Corner #2 – 10 Merkins, Corner #3 15x Squats, and Corner #4 – 20x Dead Bugs. Bear Crawl between cones.

Bataan Death March to Hill – 2 Lines, 5 merkins & sprint to front of line.

Hill Sprints – YHC separated the pax into 3 groups based on pace. The fastest group sprinted for 20 seconds up the hill and set a cone at the distance they could make it in 20 seconds. When they made it to the top, the second group started their sprint and set their 20 second distance. The third group followed suit after the second group reached the top. After the first group reached the top they moseyed back to the starting point and started the sprints again when the third group reached their distance. Each group completed 10x – 20 second hill sprints with 40 seconds of rest in between.

Instructions were then given to the pax to find a log in the woods on either side of the hill road, and carry these to the top. (2) 20’ long trees were found and the pax lifted them on their shoulders and delivered them back to the woods near the pavilion at the top of the hill.

The pax then moseyed to the top of the hill, and bear-crawled or crawl-beared down the stairs. The stairs had a slight build-up of snow & ice so some of the pax did modify and ended up sliding down a leaf filled trail, and moseyed back to the shovel flag.

Shared our “One Word” around the CoT

While sharing interesting facts about ourselves, it was discovered that Bubblegum has a soft spot on his head that never has healed, so he earned himself a name change to said Soft Spot.
