YHC prayed us out, thankful for another double digit turn out and asked for strength and fellowship in the coming months. 

Very appreciative to everyone that came out this morning. Workout was supposed to be on the tennis court with motivators in between, but we improvised. Lots of grumble during the inchworm. Ant bite karma on the Merkin Walk. General disgust from pack leaders Aaarrrggghhh and AlrightAlright when YHC called the Merkin Walk when the rest of the PAX was halfway. Rump Roast claimed 7Fs on the scale. YHC was not informed of the beer/claw requirement this morning, which may have been why most of y’all showed up… but beers will be served tomorrow at the harbor!

Siesta VQ Saturday 8/22 at 7am, followed by 2.0 workout at 9am

AO: Burleson Park

Disclaimer: Given 

Intro/ Warm-o-Rama:
Mosey to the Track

The Thang:
Pax didn’t know Oatmeal and I planed a KTT 2ndCT convergence!
Partner up – Partner #1 runs 200m while Pax #2 does max Burpees… That’s all
Ar 0600 we decided to leave Oatmeal & Sound Machine to it and moseyed back to Burleson Stopping about every 75yrs, where each PAX called an exercise. 
Slushii – J-Lo’s (Imagine that)
Rump Roast – 10x Erlins + 10x Derkins (IC, SC)
Bleep – 20x IST’s in Mach Turbo Speed!!! (IC, DC)
Classified – 10x Squats (DC)
Froggy 15x Hill Billies (IC, DC)

No music this morning 

When YHC starts the warm-up with a mosey it raises eyebrows… When I took a left at the stop sign there was immediate feeling of seriousness. Then Slushii tried to break it up by asking me if I was lost?!?! I just continued to mosey to the track. Oatmeal & I had texted the evening before about meeting at the gate we “usually” go in from Burleson. We talked about the “Boulevard” being the backup location.  We got in at the opposite end by the stadium and without the KTT gang started with “The Coach K” which started with Coach texting me this workout and saying “I thought about you the whole time, Rump”… I felt compelled to share the beatdown and a little bit of Coach K whom we all miss so much. I heard plenty of grumbling and I may have dropped a few F-Bombs myself! Overall it was a great beatdown. We made 4x laps around the track plus the run there and back. While not a KTT, I thought it was pretty respectable.
Chairman’s walk next Saturday 22 Aug
2.0 workout, also 22 Aug. 0900 @ Burleson (Slushii is heading this up)
GroRuck update coming soon

Mosey to the Playground for a quick circuit:

Group 1 does 5 pull ups, then relieves Group 2 (doing Squats AMRAP) who relieves Group 3 (doing LBCs AMRAP) who relieves Group 4 (doing Step Ups AMRAP) who goes to do 5 pull ups. Complete 4 rounds.

Mosey to the football field for some football suicides with coupons. The markers were each of the three lights on the far side and the far goal line.

Suicide 1: Going from short to long with increasing Bicep Curls (3,6,9,12)

Suicide 2: Going from long to short with decreasing Man Makers (12,9,6,3) 

Bear Crawl to the first pole and Crawl Bear back. 12 OH Press when back

Suicide 3: Going from short to long with increasing Squats (3,6,9,12)

Done a little during the circuit at the beginning

YHC prayed us out

With Brooks not showing up on Sunday, YHC decided to go heavy on the running. YHC was originally going to do the Suicide Special, but decided to modify it with coupons and football field. Special Sauce and a few others were curious if we were going to repeat the Bill Murray Caddyshak/Groundhog Day workout, but quickly found that was not the case. Rump was none to pleased and let YHC know it early and often. Overall a solid turnout and YHC was happy to have so many post in the Gloom. 

1. Ultra is rucking to raise  money for Doctors Without Borders in their support of Beirut this Wednesday starting at 1800 and going to midnight. Come join him for all or some of it and donate.
2. 2.0 workout to take place next Saturday, August 22 at 0900 after Siesta’s VQ.

No music this morning

OK, so maybe it was more “Ground Hog Day” than “Caddyshack” but, again, my knowledge of golf is limited at best! It seemed like a good idea last night. I think everyone heard that the warm-up exercises this morning were suggested golf exercises – The internet never lies… Right?
I noticed Bleep didn’t have a whole lot to say this morning. I believe @Ultra called me an A$$hole the first round across, @Special Sauce told me he was thinking about faking having to take a dump for the first time ever at an F3 workout, @Double Pain told me that he’d forgotten what round he was on reinforcing the “Ground Hog Day” movie comparison. It was a pretty epic beatdown.

Circle of Trust (CoT):
YHC prayed us out – Zach Tellier paid the ultimate price – 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, N.C.; died Sept. 29 at Firebase Wilderness, Afghanistan, of wounds sustained when insurgents attacked his unit using small-arms fire. Hero’s like him paid so I can make the free choice to be out here in the middle of COVID getting better with my brothers. I feel like somehow these workouts honor men like him and make sure they’re not forgotten.  

No music this morning

There was some mumble chatter thru the warm-o-rama and thru the mosey to the start. Bleep commented real shortly in that that it had dropped substantially! By the second round the PAX were asking what they had done to deserve this!?!?! We only got to the 4th round but didn’t make it to the 4th block to stack on the 150 LBC’s and moseyed back to the launch. I took a moment to talk about Zach Tellier and what this WOD means to me. HIM’s like Zach Tellier paid the ultimate price so guys like us can be out here in the gloom giving it away. #acceleration #taketheredpill #giveitaway  

HH tomorrow at Pow-Pows // GoRuck in September see Band for both

Rump Roasts F3 Playlist

I showed up this morning with a “field” routine only to see that they were fertilizing the field at 0527 in the morning! Had to call an audible and use the tennis courts, which had a fence dividing the two courts so again, had to modify the run portion of the Blackjack.  There was some grumbling during warm-up about “legs” but, we had to get them in at some point because the rest was ALL arms, chest, shoulders! Typical Rump in that I didn’t even mean to destroy our upper body. It just comes naturally!

Noone made it thru “Bring Sally up” without touching the ground. We’ll have to do that one more often. There was some mumble chatter during the first few rounds of BlackJack which were soon replaced with grunts, moans, and a few choice words about merkins! I hope everyone would agree, it was a beat down. Good ole fashion Rump special! 

Happy Hour tomorrow at Sex Panthers. We’ll be BYOB and chair to maintain social distancing practices.

Address-5542 Glenwick Ln.
Time-5:30 PM.

Fashionably Late

PAX: Aaarrrggghhh, AlrightAlright, Cookies N Cream (FNG), Froggy (B’ham), Icebox, Oatmeal, Sex Panther, Sweet Baby, Teasip
QIC: Coach K, Ultra

We don’t know because we were both late…

Tha Thang (YHC):
21, 15, 9 of thrusters and burpees (21 reps of both, then 15, and 9)

Jacob’s Ladder with OG Manmakers (burpee, push up, clean, squat, press, two lunges) and burpee jump overs with the block

Tha Thang (Ultra):
Partner 1 runs across field while other PAX does reps
– 50 double count side leg raises (each side)
– 100 double count shoulder presses

Mosey to flag for ring of fire v-ups with chest press (200x)
Rugby SUs and LBCs to round us out

In true co-Q fashion, 0/2 showed up on time as other PAX were instructed to tell the other to start first. Whoops. Not the ideal impression for an FNG, but his name might be cause for bigger concern…Teasip was kind enough to lead the warm-up before the Qs rolled up.

We grabbed the blocks and made it to the field. Pretty sure the thruster/burpee combo is more despised than a traditional YHC Burpee Beatdown, but that’s up for the PAX to decide. We had some side exercises going while the six wrapped up the circuit before moving to what was probably a worse series of exercies. YHC demonstrated a true manmaker (includes two lunges while holding the press). A couple of PAX requested follow up demonstrations, and we’re at the point in F3 where YHC assumes they’re being difficult and not serious. My bad. Time got called and Ultra took the reigns.

Mumblechatter was very scarce this morning, except for the number of times PAX asked Ultra to clarify he said “double-count” every exercise. Could not count the times on two hands. We powered on, but, again, it was a really quiet group this morning. There were a lot of comments about the hip flexors during the side leg raises, which is apparently a muscle none of us at F3 ever use. After the mini-Dora, we moseyed back to the flag for the longest ring of fire in Dallas history. Holding the block over your head and your legs at 6 inches, we went around doing a v-up. “We’re going to 200” was a nice warning that no one thought was serious. But alas…it was.

We wrapped up with the naming ceremony, where our lovely FNG gave us plenty of ammunition when, in describing his life, was bold enough to use the word “Lactation”. This overshadowed any references to his hometown in upstate NY and his two daughters. After circling around breast pumps, lactation, and milk, we finally got to “Cookies n Cream”. Ask him about it…you won’t regret the story.

Thanks for braving the weather this morning.
