Ruck It BackBlast – BYOB

A 9-Pax showed out in The Gloom this morning.  Gathering was held in the Convention Center Overflow Parking lot due to high water (?) at Union Point Park.  Black Dog, Mr. Roboto and YHC all contributed to the pile of sandbags.  In all, we had 2 @ 40 lbs, 1 @ 52 lbs, and 2 @ 60 lbs., plus one orange cone.  YHC finds it ironic that Sandbagger Q’d The Fartlek this morning.  Hard Start @ 0530.


  • Rucks off
  • SSH, IC, 10x
  • Cotton Pickers, IC, 10x
  • Tempo-Tempo Merkins, 10x (Tempo Down & Tempo Up)

As it was not breezy enough in the parking lot, Pax rucked up, grabbed a sandbag, and moved to the grassy field near the traffic circle.  This gave the Pax a full indication of the wind speed and direction.

THE THANG (Rucks on for entire experience)

  • Bear Crawl to  Cone
  • Link arms for WWII’s, OMU, 10x
  • LInk arms for Lunge Walk
  • Pair Up
  • YHC linked together a 40 lb and a 60 lb sandbag.  This was used for a sandbag drag to cone and back.  While 1 Pax was dragging, his teammate would hold a Standard Plank Position.  Other Pairs would perform alternating Sandbag Cleans.  The remaining 40 lb sandbag was a clean and press station.  Rotate pairs until all Pax completed every station.
