Rucking In The Rain!

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 10/19/2019
  • QIC: PUD
  • The PAX: Toxic, Gekko, RainMan, Lifo

The weatherman predicted a monsoon would hit Memorial Park #F3Anchor as well as the rest of #NorthEastFlorida but that didn’t dissuade 5 brave souls from coming out for a #FreeMensWorkout!

In light of the fact that #GoRuckSelection was coming to a close, YHC figured a Ruck Workout would be fun!

Toxic showed up like Gene Kelly – “Singing in the Rain” – with his umbrella! He put a ruck on for the first time in his life!

CONDITIONS:

> 6AM was wet! Gekko & Pud #RainRuck

> 7AM was dry!  Magically the clouds parted and we didn’t get a drop of rain!!

WARM UP: Rucks on!

> LBAC Forward – 15 IC

> LBAC Backwards – 15 IC

> Moroccan Night Clubs – 15 IC

> SSH (or Gekko Hops) – 15 OYO

> Tempo Squats – 10 IC


THE THANG: Rucks on!

> 1 lap (.25 mile)

> 150 Step Ups

> 50 Thrusters (Overhead Press)

> Bear Crawl (Light pole to Flag)

> 150 yard Suitcase Carry (Switch hands)

> 3 Laps (.75 mile) Lap 1 Rucks on back, Lap 2 Rucks on front, Lap 3 Rucks overhead

> 50 Squats

> 1 Minute Plank

> 4 Merkins

> 8 Dead Lifts

> 16 Squat Thrusters

> 32 Ruck Swings

The mumble chatter is always fun when the Real Toxic is in the house.

Good times under Ruck today. Much appreciation for Gekko’s company during the downpour!
