The Barracks Without a Hitch

THE SCENE: YHC arrived on the scene at 0520ish. Hitch had promised me sand for my empty sandbag and he was there waiting for me. He then informed me that he hadn’t slept at all (thanks a lot, babies!) and that he wanted me to Q so he could go back to bed. I happily obliged. Four Eyes, the only other known HC, was having some bowel issues and was running behind. Hitch had shared his weinke in Slack, so I pulled that up for reference. I modified some things that I didn’t understand or just didn’t see. Cobains. Hitch left. Four Eyes arrived. What follows is mostly accurate.


WARM-O-RAMA: We grabbed some of the stuff, took it to the launching pad, then went back to the cars to get the rest of the stuff. With all of our gear set, we did a quick warm-up of daisy pickers, squats, and then walking arm-circles. Mosey to the pull-up bars.

5, 75-second sets of:
5 pull-ups, 5 dips, 10 squats

Mosey around to launching pad.

3 (or 5?) sets of:
10 deadlifts (80# sandbag)
10 thrusters(60#sandbag)
10 high pulls (35# kettlebell, 30# CMU, or 60# sandbag)
10 overhead press (same implements as high pull)

6 rounds of ~30 yd partner carries

3 sets of 10 merkins IC (led by Four Eyes)

We did some heels-to-the-heavens, freddie mercuries, canoe hold for 45 seconds or so.

We ate our 10 burpee shovel flag penalty because we had too much crap to carry.

When life gives you lemons, persevere in patience towards your wife and kids. Don’t take your frustrations out on them, even if they’re the cause of those frustrations!

Those thrusters were a B.
