Backblast #169 – EXTERMINATORS


Preblast via Slack: Somebody let Kraut have the Q tomorrow morning! Who’s down for a beat down in the Gloom? Weather looks AWESOME, so let’s see those HCs! Bring a Coupon!

AO – Hospital Hill
Weather: 65F / Intermittent Rain

0530 – Core Principles Recited to 10 PAX – MAD COW, Hasselhoff, Stalin, Bald Eagle, Basic Bro, Snoop, Rehab, Roid Rage, Sex Panther, and Kraut (QIC)

Capri Lap
Motivators from 5
10 Finkle Swings
15 Cherry Pickers w/ Back Clap

The Thang
At the F3GR one year anniversary convergence Urkel taught us about “Terminators”. Immediately after that, Hasselhoff looked at YHC and said “Don’t get any ideas”

PAX Complete the following exercises, in cadence, starting from the Q specified number of reps, and working down.

  • Blockees

  • Coupon Lunges

  • Coupon Curls

  • American Sledge Hammers (American Hammer w/ a coupon)

  • Dead Lifts

  • Bent Over Rows

YHC advised the PAX that we would be starting at 10. Just like Motivators, 10 reps of each exercise were completed, then 9, 8, 7, 6…. etc.

The PAX were really pushing today, and it had started to rain lightly around 8 giving the PAX some refreshment. We reached the last round about 5 minutes ahead of schedule, so YHC called the audible and we went back to 10 instead of doing a round of 1. That made a total of 64 reps of each exercise!

With a few minutes to spare before Mary, YHC asked the PAX to line up under the goal posts on the field, with their coupons held over their heads. One trip down to the other goal posts and then back, and you could only move when your coupon was up. If you needed to take a break, you had to stop walking. All of the PAX gave it AYG and finished strong.

6 Minutes of Mary
Since today’s workout had been coupon themed, YHC decided to scour the Exicon for coupon related Mary (beyond the American Sledge Hammers we had already done)

  • 16 Heavy Freddies – Freddie Mercurys but with a coupon on your hands

  • 14 Heavy Freddies (Much Mumblechatter was heard about calling these out again)

  • 20 Flutter Kicks with your coupon held up

Announcements: MAD COW has the Q on Saturday. There was some discussion of a Murph Challenge on Monday but not many were able to make it, The Shovelflag needs to be upgraded, and a call for more Grow Ruck sign ups (Verbal HCs from Hasselhoff and Roid Rage)

Count-O-Rama / Name-O-Rama

COT Message: “Man becomes aware of danger when he feels himself opposed to something more powerful than himself. In other words, when he feels his own armament is unequal to that of the enemy who oppose him. It is important for a man to lose his individual feeling and to become an integral part of the battalion, division, and army to which he belongs. The larger the unit of which he feels himself a member, the larger will be the estimation of his own armament and the less will be his fear” Bernard “Monty” Montgomery

So get out there, and get after it, knowing that you have a strong team with you.
