Sandbag Hand-Offs

Kept it simple this morning. 45 minutes of running and carrying sandbags.

DATE: 8/19/2021
AO: Falcon Hill
TIMEX: 0530-0615
WEATHER: 71° and soupy
Q: Crockett
PAX: Fence Post, Cobra

Warm-o-rama

Some simple stretching followed by 20 SSH IC to get the blood moving a little.

The Thang

Do laps around the track. Two PAX start with 60# sandbags. If you have a sandbag, walk. If not, run until you reach a PAX with a sandbag, then take it from him. Do this for ~40 minutes.

End with Crockett Special: BatWings IC x20

Carrying heavy things is a fundamental part of life; far more so than pushing things. The Delta Coof seems to be hitting closer to home for many of us. Fence Post and YHC may still have sand in our shoes from Saturday. Not sure.

The Thang

Part 1: Pyramid of Merkins

Simple up-the-hill-down-the-hill with a little added fun. PAX line up at bottom of hill. Pax at the end of the line starts with the sandbag. Start with 1 merkin, then run up the hill. At the top, do 2 merkins, then run down. Keep going until you hit 10 merkins, then work back down to 1. Pax with the sandbag has to take it with them up and down the hill, then gives it to the next Pax. Exercise is complete once all PAX have completed reps AND carried the sandbag up and down the hill at least once.

Part 2: Christmas in July Secret Santa Sandbag Burpee Bonanza

Line up at bottom of hill. Give sandbag to random Pax.

Simple enough. Burpee at the bottom. Burpee at the top. If you have the sandbag, it goes with you. When you come down the hill you get to play Santa and give the sandbag to anyone you choose. If you don’t have the sandbag and the PAX who does is still doing their burpee, you can steal it (this can be prevented by doing the burpee WITH the sandbag).

Do this non-stop for at least 5 minutes.

And it wouldn’t be a Crockett beatdown without…

The balance and coordination of most F3 Dayton Pax is roughly equivalent to a drunk guy. Bugs think Pavarotti is tasty. 100 burpees a day keeps the doctor away.
