Back Blast – Agony @ The County – 08/20/2020

Delayed back blast, yet again…

We gathered. Time was called. Disclaimers provided.


  • Holy Roller (R)
  • Cratchit
  • Jerry Maguire (R)
  • Tidwell
  • Double Down (R)
  • Ladybird (R)
  • Pew Pew
  • Hush Puppy
  • Asian Zhing (R)
  • Bullrider
  • Gisele
  • Jolly Rancher (Q)

And we took a quick mosey around the campus – 1/4 mile lap. Then we circled for some COP, which I honestly can’t remember what we did as they all get mixed up in my head [particularly when I’m a few back blasts behind], but, I’m 100% certain we did SSH and Toy Soldiers. After we got all warmed up, we went into Thang 1.

Thang 1 – EMOM for Arms:

We moved the coupons over to the middle of the large parking lot and circled up for an every-minute-on-the-minute routine for arms. It included:

  • 10x – Overhead Presses
  • 10x – Curls
  • 10x – Merkins

We made quick work of this for 10-minutes. So, for those non-math majors, that’s 100 of each exercise.

Thang 2 – Suicide 11s for Legs:

I’ve really enjoyed this as it’s another way to mix up to make more challenging a relatively easy exercise set of 11s. I had set up some flashing lights in advance – each about 4 or 5 parking spots in between. Goal was to start with 11s with Jump Squats on one side and Squats on the other. The trick is the movements to get to the other side mimics a suicide, but worse:

  • Bear Crawl to 1st light
  • Mosey to 2nd light
  • Sprint to 3rd light

It sucked just like it sounds. Sprints turned to mosey. Mosey turned to walking. Bear Crawls turned into, well, I don’t know what it was.

Mary for Core:

We had a few minutes for Mary and knocked out some:

  • Gas Pumps
  • Flutterkicks

Time was called.

We circled up, namearama, countarama, announcements and intentions. Enjoyed leading this group today – even if they did smoke my weinke.

Jolly Rancher out!
