The BackBlast:

6 PAX emerged from the darkness to get better – and when I say Dark – man it felt like Fall was coming because pitch blank and officially headlamp season.

The inspiration for today’s beat down comes from Tweaker for F3 Alpha in Atlanta – I stole/borrowed his Plus 5 idea and make a couple tweaks to fit our AO and some of my ideas.

Disclaimer was given – and even clarified the meaning of modify as needed.


SSH IC x 20

LBAC forward IC x 25

LBAC reverse IC x 11 (Sorry, Knope – didn’t feel like evening it out today)

IPW IC x 15

Shoulder Taps IC x 15 (didn’t let the PAX recover until the following two exercises were complete)

Mountain Climbers IC x 15

Plank Jacks IC x 15

Time to Mosey…or something

The Thang (PLUS 5)

The PAX started to Mosey Around the Track to the South of the Park.

I stopped them along the way to drop 8 cones – each with an exercise taped to it. We did 5 Reps of Each.

  1. Burpees
  2. Hand Release Merkins
  3. X Factor – IC
  4. Singlet Merkin (6 count each rep)
  5. Burpee
  6. Bonnie Blair (each leg does each rep)
  7. Dips IC – done at the small gazebo by basketball court
  8. Derkins – done at the large gazebo near volleyball court

After we completed one lap of 5 reps as described above, the PAX were instructed to do another lap, but PLUS 5 to the REPS. Then without break, do a 2nd lap with another PLUS 5 to the previous total (now 15).

The PAX crushed this, but that lap ended up being pretty hard.

To wrap up our workout we gathered around the flag and offered a tribute to the very raining stormy hike the Peak Bagger Crew attempted over the weekend – and played Thunderstruck with the PAX holding a plank and doing Burpees with each mention of THUNDER.

Luckily the clock ran out and we didn’t get through the last bit of the song. The crew was smoked – great work boys.


  • Presented Stimpy, the Site Q for Pigface, as well as the Weasel Shaker for F3 Salt Lake – a new shovel flag for Pigface. I might add, it was looking glorious in his selected purple color.
  • Talked about Ax Throwing with Jimmy Choo
  • Discussed our 3rd Anniversary as a Region, coming up in September
  • Started thinking about when to do Iron Pax as well.

Today was definitely a day where the workout didn’t seem that hard on paper, but turned into a pretty big effort for the PAX.

Kudos to these men for stepping into the Gloom and getting better today.

Until next time,
