Are you prepared for the success of FAILURE??

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 05/15/19
  • QIC: McDreamy
  • The PAX: Outhouse, Rudy, T-Bird, Endo, (some random dude who showed at the end as was properly EH'd)

Five men were in the mood to PARTAY AT THE POOL!! At least they were smiling until the workout began…
YHC asked the men to consider the value of FAILURE in their lives. Puzzled but intrigued, we set off..

Carrying 25-35 lb plate weights, the men (not so) cheerfully jogged the dreaded Lighthouse Lap to the Basketball Courts. BTW—‘mosied’, past tense if mosey, isn’t a word. Jus sayin…

Warm up on BB COURT
(insert 10 burpees for generally poor attitude…afterwards, spirits improved immensely)
Don Quixote
Birth canals
Tempo merkin



1. Hair burners—2 men per plate, change at mid court. Partner skips. At end, each person does 25 merkins and 25 LBCs. Total 100

2. Take weights to Skate park:
Jacobs ladder 11s: burpees and mountain climbers

3. Pool: Pull-up Palloza
P1: Pool-ups
P2: runs to pull up bar in playground bar with weight— 5 pull-ups (2x). Round 2 was BTTW

4. To field: take weight; FRBLs— forward backward left right down (burpee)
5. Gassers to midfield at 50 and 100 %.

CR/NR/Announcements/Prayers—(insert 10 burpees for Rudy’s BD, singing as we suffered…)

BOM: From Mark Manson’s book (The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck; btw—a must read). “Improvement at anything is based on thousands of tiny failures, and the magnitude of your success is based on how many times you’ve failed at something. If someone is better than you at something, then it’s likely because she has failed at it more than you have. If someone is worse than you, it’s likely because he hasn’t been through all of the painful learning experiences you have.”
