Backblast 9.19.20 – The Nest @ The County w/ Jewel

Man, the boys came out on Saturday. 28 Bobs strong. What an awesome morning, albeit, a little chilly. The mumblechatter was strong at the start as the PAX waited for0700.

I told myself I wanted to bring the heat for this workout… a little Garden flare if you will. Then this happened…
Worm: “Is this workout ruck friendly”
Me: “Sure”
Worm proceeds to dominate the day with 30# rucksack.
Welp, there goes that

Like I said, it was cold, and I only had on shorts and a t-shirt, so I wanted to get us moving, and in a hurry.

COP – this was a moseying COP, complete with a 2/4/6/8/10 Kraken Burpee 1/2 mile. We used the outer circle of The County.
50 SSH x 2 Kraken Burpees
Toy Soldiers (15) & Copperhead Squats (15) x 4 Kraken Burpees in the front parking lot
Grass Grabbers (10) & Abe Vigodas (10) x 6 Kraken Burpees in the side lot
A couple other exercises & 8 Kraken Burpees
Return to the main lot to complete the circle – 10 Kraken Burpees (that’s a total of 55 Kraken Burpees complete with 90 hand release merkins) pretty solid start if you ask me, which I’m sure you wouldn’t.

Now for the Thang
Coupon work
Curls x 50
Bent Over Rows x 35
Overhead Press x 20
Skull Crushers x 20
Coupon Swings x 10
CI Press and Hold x 1 (10 front straight arm press x 10 second hold)
400m loop

3 rounds – Did I mention Worm wore his ruck the whole time? And Focker was using a 60# rock bag? Manimals I tell you…

Thang 2 – Coupons were to be used on all except the BBS
Squats x 20
BBS x 35
American Hammers x 25
Flutter Kicks x 35 4 count
Wheezy Jeffersons x 20
400m Run

3 Rounds – for those still reading, Worm still rocking the ruck, and Focker still using the BIG weight.

Like I said in my preblast – The County is special. They have a great group of guys there, they support each other like crazy, and Dauber and Pelican are everyone’s favorite married couple. It was an honor to lead at the Nest. I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of this group. It’s incredibly humbling and even more motivating. Thanks to all who came out.
