Rookie Mini-Camp at Asgard

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 05/15/2021
  • QIC: Feud
  • The PAX: Woodshed, Roddy, Guppy (FNG-Don Shin), Recall (FNG- Mark Dulke), Sasquatch, Feud

6 HIM of Fleming Island, including 2 FNGs, fought the urge of the fartsack and posted in the gloom at Asgard. YHC had heard that the Jaguar newbies were in town for rookie mini-camp so he dusted off an old playbook of exercises for the occasion.  Seemed even more appropriate with 2 FNGs joining us on this picturesque morning with a comfortable 56 degrees and blue skies.  All good things must come to and end: it was time to get uncomfortable…


  • SSH x20 IC
  • Imperial walkers x10 IC
  • Don Quixote’s x10 IC
  • Squats x10 IC
  • Merkins x10 IC
  • Burpees x10 OYO (because coaches hate it when rookies show up to camp with untucked shirts- isn’t that right Farah &  Farah?)


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:

  • Jump squats x50
  • Alternating shoulder taps x100
  • Groiners x150
  • Sumo squats x200

With Trevor Larwance being the most recent and most notable QB drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars, the first pax member to tell me who the first ever college QB drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars, will receive a cup of coffee at coffeeteria compliments of YHC.   

Training Camp Drills

  • Fire Drill- 2 rounds (what camp doesn’t do some sort of “up-downs”)
    • Pax in a line performing chops
    • Each takes turn calling down
    • Pax go down, roll right -> merkins ->roll left -> merkin -> up to resume chopping
    • SSH substituting for chops on 2nd round
  • Railroad Tracks
    • pax in low plank ~ 5 yards apart
    • last pax hurdles over each pax and resumes low plank
    • next pax goes and repeats (Indian Run style)
    • continue to cone (~50 yards away), then across the field and back to baseline

Special Teams Drills

  • Punt/Pass Whamo Lunge Walk
    • 1 member of pax punts/passes ball and rest of pax sprints to ball, once ball hits ground all pax lunge the rest of the walk
    • first one to ball punts/passes next
    • continue until all members punts/passes ball at least once
  • Field Goal Challenge
    • Made FG = no penalty
    • Missed FG = 10 merkins

TOWNDOWN Celebrations

  • We hope to have a few more TD celebrations this year, so we had to practice our TD celebrations- hence the return of the Cha Cha Slide in plank.


Outstanding work by our new pax brothers who hung in there to the end.  YHC reviewed the mission, mantra, core principals of F3 for our FNGs.  Reminded them to get better, they must keep coming out.  Hardest part is taking that DRP.
