Camp Feud

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 07/28/2018
  • QIC: Feud
  • The PAX: Butcher, Snooki, Gravy, Farah & Farah (double respect), Wolfpack, Biiiing, Fix-It, Feud

8 Pax posted in the gloomidity that only a late July morning in Florida can bring. It is getting late in the summer, which can only mean one thing: training camp! The Jags are back in town following a surprising and impressive season. YHC never played organized football (unless you count intramural flag football), but I imagine some of these next group of exercises are similar to what goes on during training camp… maybe:

COP

• SSH x24 (this is the 24th season for the Jags which started play in 1995) IC
• Toy soldiers x12 IC
• Don Quixote x10 IC
• LBAC F/B x10 IC
• BAC F/B x10 IC
• Prisoner Squats x10 IC
• Merkins x10 IC
• Groiners x10 OYO
• LBC x15 IC

The Thang

Stealing a page from Farah & Farah’s playbook, we started with a 10 Burpee penalty for untucked shirts. Coaches hate untucked shirts.

J-A-G-S! JAGS! JAGS! JAGS!

Same concept as BOMBS (partner 1 runs to cone and back, partner 2 exercises then switch until combined total reps met), but this one is for the Home Team:

J: Jump Squats x50
A: Alternating shoulder taps x100
G: Groiners x150
S: Sumo Squats x200

Training Camp Drills

Fire Drill (what camp doesn’t do some form of “Up-Downs”)

o Pax chops until “down” called by member of Pax
o Pax drops and rolls right, performs merkin, rolls left, merkin, then up to their feet and resumes chops
o We performed 2 rounds, briefly switching to side straddle hops to mix it up a little (good thing we don’t have a guy named “Blue”)

Railroad Tracks to trash can, then across field, back to goal line and back to start

Special Teams Drills

Punting Whamo Lunge Walk

o 1 member of pax punts ball and rest of pax sprints to ball, once ball hits ground all pax lunge the rest of the way
o first one to ball punts next; continue until all members punt ball once

Field Goal Challenge

o 3 PAX represent the 3 main members of the field goal unit- the snapper, holder and kicker
o Kicker attempts 20-yard FG 
- Made FG results in 5 merkins; missed FG results in 5 burpees for PAX
- Kicker returns to line, holder becomes the kicker, snapper becomes the holder, and next PAX in line becomes the snapper
- PAX in line in air chair
- We were able to get 1½ rounds before time
- PAX were roughly 50% on FGs, resulting in 30 burpees and 30 merkins

Naked Mole Skin

• Fire Drill was a crowd pleaser
• YHC first FG attempt hit the cross bar and went over- Pax wondering if that was a good sign of how the season would go.
• Those who have attempted FG’s at my previous Q’s, including YHC, were glad to finally attempt one on a real goal post- this greatly increased our percentage of made FGs

COT/BOM

• Farah & Farah’s mother being treated in the hospital to help regulate her blood pressure
• Biiiiing for knowledge, guidance and perseverance to complete bachelor’s degree
• For those in Redding, CA and all those who have lost their homes due to wild fires, including YHC’s former colleague and team member and her family
• Lord’s prayer
