The Thang:

AO: BombSquad

Conditions: 62 and perfect

Well we are now starting on the 6th week of the 1stFChallenge and things are heating up! Multiple PAX are vying for the coveted top spot in November with Valvano leading the way currently followed by Pikachu and various others like Boxcar (who has yet to post any app documentation for his runs… just saying). Trying to keep up with these guys right before going downrange is tough and has me Q’ing back to back days this week, but regardless of the points it has me back out in the gloom going all out again.

Got to the AO about 10 minutes early and there were already a number of cars in the parking lot. Beefsteak and Manziel were already getting after it with a pre-run. Einstein, Cross Stitch, and Sideout were out warming up as well. Quaker and O’douls showed up around the same time that I did and then the PAX kept coming. Even got my buddy Bernie to venture out to BS for the first time. When the dust finally settled we had 16 PAX! #BigMonday is BACK!

Group mosey to the big lot.

Big Parking Lot:

Line up in four lines (4 PAX per line) starting at the first grassy island in the parking lot. Everybody waiting in line is doing SSH. First man up will burpee broad jump the full length of the parking lot (A little over 140 ft). When the first man gets to his 3rd jump, the next man in line can start and burpee broad jump down to the other side. When you get to the far side of the parking lot, SSH until the last man finishes.

Same four lines and same basic principle but this time the men in line are doing Bobby Hurley’s and instead of burpee broad jumps we are bear crawling and doing a merkin at each parking line. Bobby Hurley at the end until the last man finishes.

This time everybody on the line together facing the road. Lateral step and squat on the wide. Continue to the middle, turn around and continue til the end.

Mosey to the bleachers

Concession Stand Bleachers: 

Everybody find a spot to knock out a set of 11s.

11’s – Step ups and Dips

Mosey to the Student Center. 

Student Center Lot: 

Everybody partner up for some DORA.


  • Partner 1 – Merkins
  • Partner 2 – Run to the shed… Then I hear some comments from the PAX. Ok lets run further, run to the gate by the fields. But glad they objected because as we turned the corner to the gate you were greeted by the Antares rocket that lit up the morning gloom sky. Incredible sight!


  • Partner 1 – Squats
  • Partner 2 – Run to the gate


  • P1 – LBC
  • P2 – Run to the gate

Mosey to the block pile. Everybody grab a block and get to the corner
