The Battle at Mt. Merlot
Location: Indian Riffle
Thursday, June 14, 2018
PAX: Heater, Popcorn, Rollie Fingers, Floater, Pavoratti, Zebra, and Goldstar
Workout: Iwo Jima’s
Showed up a few minutes late (bad look for the Q, I know), to a group of 8 total… was expecting maybe 5 but was pleasantly surprised to see so many PAX show up. Warmed my sadistic heart.
Brought out the jump ropes, sandbag kettlebell, and the big sandbag.
Started off with 10 minutes of various stretching…
Then moseyed to FTH with gear and flag in Popcorn’s hands where he placed it on the top of FTH where we began the work…
Grouped in 4 teams of 2 men each… one team running with the sandbag up FTH followed by 10 merkins at the top, run back down… two teams jump rope and do air squats and the last team does kb swings and LBC’s until the hill team gets back to the bottom… then rotated to the next station with alternating exercises. Modifications as needed.
Rinse and Repeat for 40ish minutes, took a short break in the middle to talk about my past and where I’ve been, etc.
Finished at the top of FTH with the flag, COT, admin pictures. It was a great morning. Crisp temp, beautiful warm sunrise… not one man excused themselves from living life this morning at Indian Riffle and I am grateful to share in the suffering with them.
