Storm Trooper Run

23 men somehow found the path to The Ridge in the early morning gloom.

Warm Up: 

Mosey around the lot butt kickers, high knee, backward run, weaver through the lines.

  • 20 SSH
  • 10 Merkins
  • 10 Windmill
  • 10 Wide Merkins
  • 10 Plank Jack
  • 10 Merkins    Someone said something about not being able to do merkins today..

To the Wall

  • 1 min BTW
  • 1 Min Donkey Kicks – terrible idea.
  • 1 Min Chair    ok enough of this..

To the Field

This was originally a Sniper Run but due to overwhelming approval of sound effects during the exercise,  I have dubbed it the Storm Trooper Run.  As fortune would have it, Storm Troopers have the worst aim ever.

  • Storm Trooper Run across the field with Star Wars Laser sound effects thanks Deuce and Schedule C..
  • 5 Burpee’s
  • Storm Trooper Run back across with more lasers firing away.
  • 10 Burpees
  • Storm Trooper Run again…  not too many sound effects this time.
  • 5 Carolina Dry Docks
  • Storm Trooper Run… quietly made it across the field again.  All Storm Troopers were eliminated.
  • 10 Carolina Dry Docks

Fellowship mosey to the hill.  

7 to 1 ladder – Carolina Dry Dock, and Squats at the top.

Jail Break Run across the lot for Mary. 

The Longest Mary: 

  • 10 Merkins
  • 2 Circle Merkin
  • 20 Low Flutter
  • 10 High Flutter
  • 10 Rosaleta
  • 10 Reverse Crunch
  • 10 Mason Twist
  • 10 Squirm
  • 10 W
  • 10 Heels to Heaven
  • 10 Freddie Mercury
  • 10 Burpees – snuck that one in.
  • 1 Min Plank.


  1. Glad I got the chance to lead the group today.  Hope the elbow heals soon Starsky.
  2. Good sacrifice of body out on the field today.   Saw a few guys simply dive into the dirt!  Not sure what made me laugh more.. the Laser sound effects or the dirt diving.
  3. 1 Min of Donkey Kicks…  horrible idea..  sorry guys.   made it up on the spot…
  4. Great seeing so many come out today.  Drink lots of water and hope you recover soon.

Have a blessed day,

YHC – Escalade

    @Escalade … that was a really good workout…covered all bases…got the feeling some of it was made up on the fly, and it worked quite well. As far as the sniper sprint drill goes, my vote goes for the sound effects being more funny…the laughter took the edge off the sprints.

    Tclaps to @Deuce … taking the traffic island in one stride on the jailbreak to mary….#longeststrideintheburg

    @Deuce/@Schedule C – loved the sound effects. Made my morning and the face plant more enjoyable.

    @Escalade – good one today. Thanks for bringing ideas from other AOs. Good stuff.

    @PAX – I pulled in (late) this AM and was wondering what in the world was going on. I couldn’t believe the number of cars in the parking lot. 23 guys at 0530 a day after Labor Day. Who would’ve thought it? Good to be out there with the PAX.

    FYI- Sound effects were GORUCK inspired. Imagine doing the Storm Trooper Run with a loaded ruck. See what fun you all are missing.

    @SS Minnow- I credit the boots for the long stride.

    @Escalade- Great lead! Thanks for taking it easy on us at the end with the burpees.
