Intro: 7 men came to do some good living endurance work.
Disclaimer: No FNG’s.
All PAX were given the warning that if any arms dropped during warm up we would switch to burpees. Needless to say, no one dropped their arms until we finished the arms warm up.
LBAC T Claps forward x 20 IC
Shoulder taps x 15
LBAC T Claps backwards x 15
World’s greatest stretch.
So we had a few first timers for PAX Challenge today so I spent a couple minutes going over the routine. Ruckers have their challenge weight in their rucks, non ruckers used a block for all exercises (minus the bear square).
This is the first time I am actually back blasting the PAX Mountain challenge. I kinda was keeping it quiet so you would have to come find out what it was on your own. But in following the Q responsibilities and for tracking purposes I want to keep the Nantan and weasel shaker off my behind.
PAX Mountain Challenge
Starting from the flag
20 Flutter kicks IC ruck or block overhead
Shuffle step to parking spots on the other side of the playground (approximately 120 yards)
1 Bearcrawl bear square (courtesy of Rabbit Ears) for those unfamiliar, one parking square, bearcrawl forward up the line, sideways left to next line, backwards down the line, sideways right to complete the square.
Merkins x 20 (on the block for non ruckers)
1 Bearcrawl bear square
WW1 situps x 20 ruck or block overhead
Shuffle step back to flag.
Rinse and repeat AMRAP style.
The way we score the challenge: 20 points for each movement. 7 movements each round 140 points. Each PAX gets their score so they can track their progress.
Cliff Hanger 440
Fish N Chips 440
City Slicker 580
BOM: please keep in your prayers KYs 2.0 for his adjustments with routines, FishNChips sister-in-law with baby upside-down to make the turn, and for my co-worker/friend for her sister Kimberly who is still in ICU with TBI.
Moleskin: So there was a lot of chatter from the group this morning. Some claims that whomever came up with this endurance test is evil. I like to think that that was a compliment. When I think of endurance, I think of it as a mathematical equation. Strength + training x pushing past your comfort zone = endurance.
