Warthog in the cold….

Warthog in the cold….

Workout Date:





Weedeater, Bling, Lombardi, Humpback, Slider (2.0), Flash, Bubbles, Penelope, Huey, OneCall (QIC)

The Thang:

37, 40, 43 – depending on who you asked.  98 if you saw Bubbles in a t-shirt and shorts!

On Monday Flash Q’d (and crushed us) at #ElevationMonday.  He asked for some of us to help him fill the sheet, so I took Saturday.  I was excited to get out on a Saturday at #Warthog since between the holidays, me moving, and the recent multiple convergences, it seemed like it had definitely been a minute since I was here on a Saturday.  Bling, Lombardi and I got in a nice 3+ mile pre-ruck as we continue to train for GrowRuck.  Wish we had more of y’all out there!  Great time to learn pacing, ask questions, test out footwear, etc.  Anyhow, Weedeater has some injuries so I modified the Q a bit so he could come.  Here is what we did:

Dan Taylors
1 squat followed by 4 lunges (alternating legs)
Keep increasing by 1 and 4 – Keep this ratio for 10:40
HOLY COW!  WOW that’s a smoker!!!
Nobody could figure out how many lunges it was (220) but it was A LOT!
We needed Valvano and his huge brain to do the math.  I used a calculator later.
Thanks for not being there V – we had to exercise our brains today rather than rely on our resident genius!

– Huey – So, when YHC was telling the guys to do some great dips, since the tricep is 2/3 of the arm and fills out the sleeves in your t-shirts and you want them bigger so you look sexy….Huey yelled out about biceps.  Now, we know he was trying to say “curls for the girls.”  BUT, he said “BIs for the GUYS!”  Yes, he did. LOL!!!!  Freudian Slip???  F3 is open to all men!!!!!!
– Weedeater has an injury caused by a “club” hitting his pelvis…but like the true #HIM he is, he was out there pushing hard and using his ruck to train
– Penelope – great having you out there with us man.  Tries to pretend he can’t do some things cause of hip, but he does it all and does great.  No whining – sign up for GrowRuck!
– Bling – 1 hour of solid hard work by everyone.  Bling – really crushed the calf raises
– Lombardi – as always, crushes it all
– Bubbles – Finally got cold in his under-dressed attire but as usual smoked everything thrown at him
– Humpback and Slider – love love love seeing the 2.0s popping out there with their dads.  11 years old and does more reps with better form than his dad!!!  Watch your back Brother!!!!
– Flash – cut hair, or NO?  Bling thought he looks much more handsome with a haircut (choice does seem pretty clear):
Clark Powers

– #FreedtoBleed Round 3 on March 2.  SIGN UP!  Save 3 lives.  If you don’t, you are a big meanie!
– GrowRuck – 4/30-5/2/21 – Join the Slack channels Soto has set up.  Cubbie has the lend a rucks.  Start training – don’t be scared.  YHC, Bling, Valvano, Hoser, Soto, Weedeater, Flash will be glad to assist.  Show up to Elevation Mondays and/or Waveruckers or look for other opportunities coming!  Like January 30!
