Back Blast: Band of Brothers 04.04.2018

AO:    The Theater
When:   0530-0615
QIC:      Spotlight
Who:    Brain, Heads Up, Dimon

YHC got to the AO early to map out the morning.  The grass was swampy but not as bad as expected.  Got most of the gear laid out when Brain showed up.  We thought it was going to be a PAX of 2 but as we started our mosey Head’s Up pulled in, then there were 3.  Dimon was next but he can fend for himself so we continued our mosey and he caught up.

COP:   SSH IC X 20, sun gods forward and back, low squat to stretch the legs, overhead hand claps IC X 17, mosey to the soccer fields

The Thang:  Home base was marked by a cone with a flashlight and 8 cones were set up 10 yds from home base in a circle.  Each cone came with an exercise to perform.  Once the exercise was completed you ran back to home base for 3 burpees then proceeded clockwise to the next cone.  Rinse and repeat until everyone made it back to their starting position.  Round 2 was the same but only 1 lap of farmer walk.

Dimon asked for prayers for his neighbor’s wife.  His neighbor suddenly passed away at the age of 54 from a heart attack.  QIC prayed us out and we were off to contribute to society.

We kept Wildebeest’s family in our prayers as they prepare to welcome number 4 later this year.  Spotlight YHC asked for prayers for his father in law who is fighting cancer.

Wildebeest led us out in prayer asking for protection and guidance for not only our AO but for F3 men everywhere who were up early making themselves better.  Today was another reminder of why it feels so good to get up and punish your body with other men of like mind.

QIC: YHC: Bo Schembechler

PAX: Grovetucky, Crossgrain, Mogul, Jumper (weighted down), Francis, Ahhh, and Wildebeest

Time away can spur some creativity, this morning was no exception. YHC came ready to take full advantage of the warm air 66° and dry morning.

0530 gave some rendition of a disclosure, followed by a brief delay as YHC decided to move… Mosey started and white lights pulled in, circling back to find Mogul prepared to work the PAX did a slow short mosey to a gloomy corner of the soccer field.

COT

Copper Head squats- ic x20

The Thang

Circled up in Plank, each member completed x3 Merkins in round robin fashion. Once completed they were to run the field to the outhouse, retrieve 2 (Dos) Bricks, and return to plank position.

Rinse and Repeat

Once each member of PAX had 3-4 bricks they were to assemble a platform.

Step ups – x25 each leg (50 count)

Side Step ups- x10 each leg (20 count)

Merkins- sc x20

YHC split 8 into 2 groups of 4… One group assembled across field while second group picked up bricks and with them pressed overhead marched them to the first group. This continued until 32 bricks had moved from point A to point B.

While moving first group completed multiple movements

Merkins- sc x25

Squats- x25

Brick press- x25

Tricep press- xburnout

Curls- x25

More stuff until group 2 completed task.

Groups switched positioning and first group moved bricks from point B back to Point A while group 2 completed unknown amount of similar movements until all bricks had been returned.

Once task was Complete PAX re assembled in Plank position and completed x3 Merkins in round robin fashion grabbed 2 bricks and returned them to area around outhouse.

Once returned PAX assembled a bucket line and passed bricks to be stacked. Upon completion PAX assembled for x30 SSHs to punch the clock at 0615.

As always an honor to lead, be pushed, and challenged by the PAX.

Our hearts are broken and prayers are strong for the family of Jerome Gonzalez who passed during the Joe Warner GoRuck Heavy at Ft. Bragg this past week.

YHC,

Bo Schembechler
