Deconstructed Burpee Ladder, etc.

26 of the Faithful posted in the gloom for YHC’s anniversary Q, harkening back to that muggy August morning a year ago when @Col.Mustard took us on a tour of what would soon become known as “The Fresh Market”. Upon my arrival this morning, @Blind Date quickly made an advance to take over the Q for the day, saying something about “signing up for Tuesday”… So, in the midst of the confusion, we did what any of you would have done, and arm-wrestled to settle the dispute. With that out of the way, we got to it.

The Thang:

Dynamic Mosey around parking lot. Circle up in Outback for warm-o-rama (SSH, slow squats, IST, CDDs)

Split into 3 groups and line up at end of field for Indian Bear Crawls. Similar to an indian run, the group does a slow mosey of a bear crawl, while the man in the back does a fast bear crawl sprint to the front. Down the length of the field and back.

Mosey to Haunted Day Care for Deconstructed Burpee Ladder {de·con·struct: (verb) reduce something to its constituent parts in order to reinterpret it}

Station 1: 10 Mericans, Station 2: 10 Groiners, Station 3: Jump squats. Rotate through each station, and repeato x5 with reps going to x15, x20, x15, x10.

Mosey back to outback. 1 min. AMRAP of pull-ups, then dips, then plank. Hang as long as possible on pull-ups / dips.

2-man grinder: Partner 1 does Carolina Dry Docks, while Partner 2 sprints across the field for 3 burpees and back. Flapjack and repeato.

Mosey to parking lot for Mary (LBC, Low Flutter (varied speeds), Freddie Mercury, Mason Twist)


The Moleskin:

1. Strong work by all; I figured with a group that size, we’d get separated easily, but everyone was pushing hard and staying together.

2. The Indian Bear Crawl didn’t quite melt down into absolute chaos, as I thought it probably would. Next time I think we need a bigger field…

3. Speaking of which, if Tradition keeps growing, you’ll need more pull-up / dip bars to match.

4. Triple Threat’s 11-year old nephew Dante made this workout look easy. Try as I might, I could not break him. He was first back on the sprints across the field at the end, and I couldn’t even hear him breathing loud… #hatehatehate

    @Trail Mix – Thanks for the beatdown! Aren’t you glad I kept EHing you? It took a little bit but you finally took the plunge. Enjoyed it! #Tclaps – Also the Indian Bear Crawl sucked! –

    nice job

  2. Forgotten Jelly

    Nice work trail mix. The bear crawls sucked! Glad I could help you celebrate 1 year.

  3. Man Down

    That was definitely one of the more creative/suck combination beatdowns I’ve been a part of. Indian Bear Crawls? Whodathunkit! Nice Q Trail Mix! And happy F3niversary!

    @Trail Mix – great Q. You were in charge the whole way and had the PAX guessing throughout what was coming next – even on the ladder – we didn’t know what was in store until we starting coming down it.

    Happy Anniversary @TrailMix. Enjoyed your workout a lot. Greatest thing about realizing that my Q is for next Tuesday is that I’m already prepared.

    Great spin on burpees by the way.

    And just to join in, the indian bear crawl sucked. But any exercise that includes bear crawl is going to suck anyway.

    @ONJ – strong work out there. Great partnering up with you.

    Nice blackbast writeup and thanks for the beatdown @Trail Mix. I would have though a deconstructed burpee would be easier but I was mistaken. Awesome job and Happy F3 Anniversary!!
