Just Cinders, Burpees, Gravity and the Ground

AO: Boneyard

When: 12/09/2022

QIC: FannyPack

PAX (7): FannyPack, Judy, Mater, Morphine, Speedo, Zohan, Brownie


Misty morning, unseasonably warm.  The only hype was “we’re gonna to try a thing”.  4 HC’s became 7 PAX, and with a disclaimer we were off.

CCR mix tape on the boom box.


We kept the geography tight; a lap around the parking lot and circle near the flag, followed by:

  • SSH
  • Toy Soldiers
  • Weed Pickers
  • HillBillies
  • Arm Circles
  • COVIDs

The Thang:

Grabbed our Cinders and headed to our own soccer field of dreams.  Picked two lines across the field that probably have a name and are important to soccer players.  Made two groups of three for a Cinder Relay, with one PAX at each end & one walking between.  Three rounds of each of the following:

  • #1- Curls                                 <=> Rifle Carry <=>     OH Press
  • #2- BO Rows                         <=> Rifle Carry <=>     Skull Crushers
  • #3- Am. Hamm. w/Cinder <=> Rifle Carry <=>     Thrusters

Next, we ran around our little made-up rectangle doing the BDM (Bataan Death March):

  • Last man does 5 Burpees, runs to front
  • Continue until everyone gets a turn

Next it was time for the GRR (Grip, Rip, & Roll).  Totally new to all of us, so it was fun to try something new.  It sucks, and the creative minds of Speedo and Zohan are already planning to make it far worse.  We did ours around the circle in the middle of the field:

  • Pick a spot on the circle
  • Sit by block
  • Pick up & place on other side
  • Roll into plank
  • Roll onto ground sitting
  • Repeat

So simple it’s stupid.   We all went to the right x20, then back to the left x20.

Wrapped up on the field with another BDM.

Mosey to the flag for some Mary:

  • V-ups
  • Tempo Mercans
  • J-Lo’s


Reminder on Santa Ruck tomorrow at 7:30 and Feather’s Christmas party.

Prayers for Speedo’s son as he sorts out college life, and for Zohan’s son who is travelling (and getting paid?!?) to debate.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

For some reason, I was dreading this morning as I prepared the BD.  Not sure why other than what Steven Pressfield calls “The Resistance” from the lizard brain.  No regrets on pushing through that crap- this group is awesome & it was fun to try some stuff.  Thanks for following along.
