Backblast # 666 – No Regerts Round Robin

Posted

DATE: 4/8/2021
AO: Ideal Park
QIC: Toto
PAX: Gravy, Florida Man, Snoop, Yard Sale
Pre-Blast: It’s going down tomorrow at Ideal Park! What’s going down, you ask? Only one way to find out: drop your HC below, say your prayers, get to bed early, show up at 5:30am with your coupon and be ready for anything.  Maybe you’ll get a Toto back-to-the-basics beatdown, or maybe @Hot Mic will be immune to the vaccine and bless us with his VQ.  Either way, no regerts for those brave enough to post.

5 Core Principles: Free of charge | Open to all men | Held outdoors, rain or shine, hot or cold | Led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion with no training or certification necessary | End w/ a Circle of Trust

Disclaimer: This is a free, volunteer, peer-led workout. I am not a professional. I have no knowledge of any injuries or fitness considerations. It is each person’s responsibility to be safe and modify exercises if you need to. The most important thing is that you don’t get hurt, and that you finish. Remember, the workout should be you vs you.          

WARM-o-RAMA
Gravy said it’s all my fault, naturally. Discussion of the warm weather and how we felt naked working out in front of each other in shorts and short sleeves…but no one complained.

THE THANG

Beatdown consisted of 5 exercise stations, with one Pax assigned to each station. One station was running the Ideal loop, the other four stations were AMRAP exercises:

Merkins
Coupon Dead Lift
LBC
Curls

Pax began their station at the same time, and ended when the Pax running the Ideal loop returned to the group. Pax then rotated stations, rinsed and repeated. This continued until each Pax had completed each station, at which point new exercises were assigned to each station and Pax repeated the process until each Pax had completed each station. All marveled at Yard Sale’s first sweat angel of the spring season. The AMRAP exercises for the second round were:

Flutter Kicks
Double Coupon Farmer Carry
Coupon Squats
SSH

Circle of Trust (CoT)
We’re not allowed to ignore those suffering, especially when God nudges us towards them. Over this last week, my M and 2.0s have felt nudged to reach out to people around us who are suffering. I told my crew this was great and that they should pursue it, but I didn’t offer to help. My heart and mind were focused on “my things” that needed done. My family deserves more from me, especially when they are follow the Spirit’s leading. So, I’m challenging myself to step up and actively participating in these pursuits alongside my family.
