The Garden 7.9.19 BB by Nino Again…WTF?!?


For the 2nd time in 4 weeks, I find myself writing a BackBlast for a WO I wasn’t on the calendar to Q. However, things come up & more often than not they come up at inopportune times because well…that’s life. One of the things F3 has taught me is I don’t have me to do it all myself. It’s okay to ask for help & in doing so doesn’t make me weak. So, last night when McAfee texts me asking if I could cover his Q at The Garden this morning I had zero hesitation in covering because I know if I needed him, he’d do the same. That’s a brotherhood fellas.

At 9:30 last night it was time to come up with a game plan so I hoped up out of bed & went out to the garage. When Qing I’ve never used the exact same WO twice, but time was minimal so I decided to recycle the core of my WO I used at The Mutt on 6.19.19. I made a couple of modifications & was ready to go.

There was some great mumble chatter before the WO, a lot of “McAfee is going to be coming in hot”, “Where’s McAfee at”, & “Since I’ve started working out a lot more women check me out & my M has noticed.” I’ll let you guys try to figure out who said that last one.


  1. Fructose
  2. Huggies
  3. Catfish
  4. Domino
  5. Husky
  6. PK
  7. Ladybird (R)
  8. Nice & Slow
  9. Uncle Rico
  10. Nino (QIC)

I gave the disclaimer letting the PAX know I am not a professional, I’ve received no professional training, & advised them to modify as they see necessary. Then we were off on a short mosey down the lot for COP.


  • (15) Grass Grabbers IC
  • (15) Abe Vigotas
  • Some calf & quad stretching

The PAX then counted off in threes to assign teams, we ended up with 3 teams in total (2 teams of 3 PAX & 1 team of 4 PAX). We then moseyed over to grab coupons & then get with the designated teams at the base of the Hill of Stolen Souls (HoSS.) for The Thang.


I placed 4 markers along the HoSS with a sign at each marker giving instruction on how to move from marker to marker during The Thang. In the middle of the baseline there was this sign:


To start things off, PAX 1 of a team would begin working their way up the hill (Run to Marker 1, Bear Crawl to Marker 2, Run to Marker 3, & Bear Crawl to Marker 4) & do (5) Burpees when they got to the last Marker. While PAX 1 was running, PAX 2 & PAX 3 of the team began executing each of the exercises & correlating reps on the board. When PAX 1 finished the run, PAX 2 went up the hill while PAX 1 & PAX 3 continued to execute each of the exercises & correlating reps on the board. This went on so on & so forth in a continuous manner until 0610 when I called time.


I instructed any PAX who finished the board before time was called to keep the flow going by starting the board over but to cut the number of reps in 1/2.

*SSH Tucks – this consisted of doing (4) SSH followed by (2) Tuck Jumps which equaled (1) rep.

We put the coupons up & gave it a good run back to the flag circling up for some Mary at 0612.


  • (20) Flutter Kicks IC
  • (28) Big Boys

It was 0615 & we circled up around the flag for COT.


  • COR
  • NOR
  • Announcements
  • Intentions

I thanked the PAX for coming & the opportunity to lead them for 45 minutes of their day. 

Nino out.
