3 of F3 Gastonia’s finest ruckers got some work in holding each other’s sacks.  Here’s what I remember:

Tube’s been leading the charge, EHing guys to get back out in the Gloom, and doin a great job of it.  Nobody took the bait this week though, and it was just YHC and Tube at 0530.  Castle Rock rolled in hot, and we skipped a warm up and got after it.

The Thang:

Ruck to the parking lot of the Dollar General and stop and unstrap the rucks for some work:

  • 10 x Overhead Presses (IC)
  • 10 x Double Crunches (IC)
  • Circle up hold your rucks out straight.  YHC put down his ruck, so we had 2 rucks being held, and we just held the rucks in front of us with straight arms, then turned clockwise to pass the ruck to the guy with empty arms.  Complete 10 passes, then flapjack and go counterclockwise for 10 passes.  Let’s call this “Hot Potato” so YHC doesn’t have to describe it over and over again.
  • 6 inches (Count down from 30)
  • 10 x Squats (IC – Pack on)

Ruck back to Riverwood, and down Plantation Trail to the back entrance to Martha’s.  After passing through the woods to the park, we did it again:

  • 10 x Overhead Presses (IC)
  • 10 x Double Crunches (IC)
  • 10 x Hot Potatoes CW
  • 10 x Hot Potatoes CCW
  • 6 inches (Count down from 30)
  • 10 x Squats (IC – Pack on)

Ruck through the park, up the gravel entrance, and back to the bank besides Snoballs for some Group Work:

  • 1 person in the group keeps their pack on and grabs another group member’s pack and rucks around the bank, carrying both however they choose
  • 2 of the group members do Wall Sits until the other partner gets back
    • If they have to break the Wall Sit, stop for
    • 10 x Dwight Howards (OYO)
  • Each partner takes 1 turn carrying 2 rucks

Wrapping that up, we were close to time, and finished a little more work before heading back to the flag

  • 10 x Overhead Presses (IC)
  • 10 x Double Crunches (IC)

45 minutes on the nose!

Always a good time and good mumblechatter at Diablo.  It really is a fun place to Q.  If you haven’t, you should.
