Ruck Training at the Posh 8/3/18 Back Blast

Weather – clear 65 degrees

12 PAX – Star Child, Launch Pad (R), Fanny Pack(R), Nino, Nice n Slow, American Beauty (FNG), Flounder, Gypsy, Pew Pew, Flood Plain, McAfee, Huggies (Q)

This was the second black ops ruck training and we had a great turnout!

We started with a Native American run to the egg lawn

Waiting us was our booty of a sand bag, water jugs and some coupons.  We  rucked around the egg lawn as a unit with Flood Plain as our squad leader.  His job was to keep the unit together and on pace.  He did an excellent job.  We finished in 9:45 seconds.  We owed 25 merkins due to a couple of breaks in our line during the ruck.

Joker’s Wild

We circled up in the egg lawn and used a deck of cards with two jokers to determine the exercises we would do.

Hearts = Ruck Merkins

Clubs = Ruck Squats

Spades = Ruck Big Boy Sit-ups

Diamonds = Ruck Kettle Bell Swings

We did the number of reps per the number on the card.  If a joker was drawn then the number doubled until the next joker was drawn.  Face cards were worth 10.  Aces required us to do a suicide.

Several hearts were drawn in a row.  We had to do 20 ruck merkins back to back to back. Not easy…

Mosey back to the flag.

Record turnout.  I hope we keep this up.
