I put together (at least in my mind) a great football-themed weinke for Folsom this morning. I figured with it being the kickoff of the NFL season, the timing was right. However, I didnt think sprints and lots of ‘change of direction’ movement was the best idea with rain coming. After talking to Gearwrench last night as we watched our kids battle it out on the football practice field, I decided to put that workout off a few days and recycle the best tabata workout I have. (The football weinke is coming to Folsom on Tuesday though)

I told Gearwrench last night if it was just us 2, we were going to Waffle House instead! Fortunately, we had 7 men this morning ready to push the rock and the breakfast will have to wait.

The story on buttermilk – F3 Gastonia legend Tesla used to always talk about serving up buttermilk. It is his way of saying a disgusting beatdown that you will not enjoy is headed your way. Back on 2/13/21, I Q’d The Yank and, being Tesla’s home turf, I figured a Buttermilk WOD was the perfect way to appreciate and also tease him at the same time. Much like today, it was pouring rain and a great day to work under a picnic shelter! Also, much like that day in 2021, Tesla was not present for the workout but I sure he would approve. Get ya dang cups ready!

No warmup today!

Each set is 30 seconds on, 20 seconds off (we moved to 30 secs off about midway thru). We did 4 sets of each exercise with 1 set of burpees between each letter.

B – Burpees (yes, 4 sets)
U – Up and Down (squats)
T – Mike Tysons
T – Tricep Dips
E – Elbow to Knee Crunch
R – Rosalitas
M – Merkins
I – Incline Planche Merkins
L – Lunges
K – Kickstarters (we really did Big Boy Situps but I encouraged everyone to do add the extra leg kick in honor of Def Leppard)

After butter, we took a quick pause to share some facts about buttermilk so that everyone better understood the greatness of this -uh- wonderful drink. Here are a few.
– Buttermilk doesn’t contain butter, it is actually the milk leftover after churning butter.
– Therefore, it has less fat that regular milk
– Most buttermilk in stores is made using bacteria cultures and is not a butter byproduct. Who knew buttermilk was cultured?
– Buttermilk stays fresh longer than regular milk. Insert freshness jokes here.
– It provides all macronutrients needed. You can survive on buttermilk.

We finished a few minutes early and Gearwrench was a little short of 600 calories so we grabbed an extra set of burpees and then hit the deck of death. I called time but some of the guys still got in 100 extra calf raises.

Us and families
Discipline for is all!

I like huddling up in a shelter and just putting in work. Some good music and good banter helps motivate us all! I appreciate those who showed this morning. I saw rock pushing! If you didn’t walk away smoked, work harder next time!!!
