The Gobbler Challenge Meets Ultimate Dogfight Football

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 11/25/2023
  • QIC: Feud
  • The PAX: Slip-n-Slide, Triple Boggie (R), Mello (R), Six Mill (R2), OxyClean, Bartles & Jaymes, Blue Lights

8 pax posting in the cool, crisp gloom of Asgard to work off some of that Thanksgiving Day feast.  With no takers on the Q, YHC took the reigns once again to see if he could squeeze in an idea he had.  With OxyClean making the cut right before the 7 am start time, we had our minimum he required to execute his “ultimate” plan.

The Gobbler Challenge– as seen on YouTube!  Challenge designed by Gobbler out in F3 Puget Sound (Washington state) in order to raise funds for the PEARL Foundation that helps at risk youth. 

  • This is an AMRAP beatdown in a 30-minute time limit. Reps for each exercise is 10 x # round (i.e. Round 1 = 10 reps, Round 2 = 20 reps, etc).  Stations are placed 100 m apart and pax start at station 4 and traverse to station 1 to being. With no track, space and time, YHC set up two cones 100 m apart that pax traveled back and forth. 
    • Farmer’s carry right x100 m
    • Station 1: Overhead presses
    • Rifle carry x100 m
    • Station 2: Squats
    • Farmer’s carry x100 m
    • Station 3: Rowers
    • Overhead carry x100 m
    • Station 4: KB swings

At some point this year, goal posts appeared at Asgard.  Apparently they were for some rugby tournament that happened that day.  The goal posts never disappeared, so having some previous “experience” with them, he decided to utilize them for…

Ultimate Dogfight Football- same rules as ultimate football, but Maverick style play.  And field goals?

  • Two teams start play with the hike of the ball at mid-field. So with two balls, each team snaps the ball to their first passer to begin play
  • Once one team scores, play stops
    • Scored on team performs 6 buprees
    • Scoring team has a 10-count to kick a field goal from mid-field (roughly a 35-yd field goal)
      • Made FG- no penalty
      • Missed FG (or run out of time before kick)- 3 burpees for scoring team
    • No clue who won, but Team Triple Boggie, Blue Lights, Six Mill and Feud scored first, Team Slip-N-Slide, OxyClean, Mello and Bartles & Jaymes scored last.
    • Slip-N-Slide, Triple Boggie, and maybe OxyClean made a FG out of all that were attempted.
    • All agreed game more challenging to catch and throw after the Gobbler Challenge

YHC continued the theme of being thankful to the Sky Q for all blessings and trials of life.  He is either building you up and making you stronger, or asking you to be that person to pull someone else up.  Regardless of which, be thankful.
