Failure isn’t really Failure

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

So the afterglow of celebrating Mom was quickly squelched when the dreaded dream killer sounded and reminded me it was Monday.  Couple that harsh reality with the residual effects of an Indian buffet and you have a perfect receipe for #Genesis! (I was actually in a good mood as a lost sheep returned from Ireland […]

Solo Cup Suicides

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

6 PAX said Yes to getting better even thought the pull of the Fartsack is at its peak on a Monday morning. They knew something was odd when the YHC was directing traffic away from the freshly placed Red Solo Cup Cones in the lot. Conitions: Perf Attiudes: Suprisingly positive (2 fingers to you Jumanji, […]

Do the Stanky Legg

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

7ish PAX posted in the fetid gloom to do the stanky leg. Actually, the workout had no name and was created on the fly, but a FNG who earns such an epic name deserves his first workout to be named thus. And with Pyro and Burmese Python both posting the GENESIS diversity index hit a new […]

Combine Weinke

YHC stayed up until the wee hours of Sunday night writing out his Weinke for GENESIS to………yeah not so much. YHC rolled out, surveyed the PAX, saw a total of 4 ready and willing for something difficult so- off we went. COP- Michael Phelps x 20 IC to warm-up Ascending Burp and Merks 1-10 to get warmer […]

Judges

And the cars kept coming…breaking a long-standing GENESIS record with 7 PAX rallying in the gloom (even missing a regular- TOXIC. A silver alert has been released). YHC is well known for making Qs up on the fly- Adaptive Q-ing that attempts to hit that sweet spot of mumblechatter- barely enough breath in the lungs […]

“Just like Ragu sauce”

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

When you have the likes of Toxic in your midst, you are always in for a treat.  He was in his normal form (sans bathrobe) this morning and named the Beatdown.  To understand the reason, you’ll just have to read the whole BB. Conditions: Perfect 50 degrees The Thang We started the week off trying […]

LIFO’s Lost Workout

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

3 PAX joined me at #GENESIS to finish what we started before our faithful brother 86’d with a trip to the ER. Explaination: 2 weeks ago, our brother LIFO had a near death experience with YHC during a beatdown.  We’ve had all kinds of Merlot Splashing but never a mini-heart attack that wasn’t induced by […]

The Smell of Burnt Hair

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

YHC doesn’t really understand why they are called hair-burners, but perhaps the Jax Pax didn’t reach the velocity required to create that burnt hair smell. YHC had always wanted to try them and today was the day. Also added some of the lessons from GrowRuck 01 and Grow School to the Q. Warm-up: Big arm circles […]

BLIMPS are not for wimps

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

Best way to start the week returning to proper form after many bad decisions over the holiday is some misery with your brothers! Conditions: 60 degrees (winter) Toxic joined us in the new millennium by sending his regrets as he was out-of-town.  Surely, the end is near, if Toxic has figured out texting! We had […]
