An Inability to Raise One’s Arms Above Their Head

AO: Rubicon

When: 2024-03-12

QIC: The Real Woody

PAX (13): Avis, Cox, Dosido, False Start, FannyPack, No-See-Um, Shazam, Special K, Sweeper (Matt Haywood), Tank, Trebek, uga


An opening on the Q Sheet allowed YHC to Q a Rubicon BD for the first time in 2 years. Instructions were given to bring a cinder.  Many complied.  Most wished they hadn't. The weather was brisk, and the concern for what lay ahead was evident.


13 SSH 13 Hillbillies Mosey to yellow playground (yes it's called that), pass by some runners who runners who call themselves F3 PAX...during the mosey do Sun Gods. 13 Weedpickers Morning Woodys - 5 x 1 pull-up/1 burpee while PAX plank/merkins Mosey back to the flag - do Randys along the way

The Thang:

Pretty simple "300" workout:

(Partner Up)


Rifle Carry to end of lot/back

200 Crossover Merkins (Alpha Count), 100 Vups coupon. (This pretty much sucked...and sucked the life out of many)

YHC tried to rally the group and lighten the mood with the famous Avis tagline..."Beach body starts today."  Did not work. 5 Burpees to rinse


Rifle Carry

200 Squats 100 Freddy Mercuries with coupon (Modified to go straight to curls)


Rifle Carry

200 Curls, 100 swings (Passed on swings do to time)

#4 - Skullcrushers for final 2 minutes

Arms, Shoulders, Chest are pretty beat...Should be sore tomorrow.

Note:  If bypass the Mosey/Morning Woodys to start and do regular merkins instead of crossover, full BD could've been done.


Prayers for No-See-um's friend who lost his father, those PAX struggling, and a challenge to all the PAX to continue investing in each other and the community.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Always a privilege to lead these men and to especially return to Rubicon.  I just can't lift my arms above my head...
