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.
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.
