10 Pax showed up at the SnakePit for their first time under a Mule-Q for a terrible hybrid Brickpile inspired Bull workout, oh, and we cannot forget to honor our brothers in the 82nd Airborne.
Conditions: 50’s with a quickly forgotten chilly breeze.
COP in the Pit:
SSH x 25
Imperial Walkers x 25
Squat x 20
Merkins x 15
Hello Dolly x 20
LBC x 20
Mountain Climbers x 20
Arm Circles x 15 front/back
Moseyed on over to the Brickpile to discover I was not ready. I assumed my time at the #Brickpile prepared me for any brick-laden situation. Dreher needs to come experience a real pile of bricks. Picked up two man-sized bricks to carry for the remainder of the work-out.
Had a brief discussion on the way to the stairs about how disappointed we all are that the #Bull has been temporarily replaced with GORUCK training.
So, with our bricks, we went up the stairs (7 flights?) stopped for 25-count Merkins at the top, went down the stairs for a 25-count LBC at the bottom. Rinsed and repeated for 13 minutes (counting down after each rotation, 25, 24, 23, etc.). Then, the counter reset at minute 14 for another 13 minutes of pain, this time with 25-count overhead presses at the top and 25-count Russian Twists at the bottom for a total of 26 minutes of pain. I think I killed any motivation/curiosity anyone had about going to the Bull in the future.
When time was up, we gathered at the bottom to take one last team-trek up the stairs to stack the bricks nice and neat for Chinstrap.
Back to the Pit we headed for our Veteran’s Day COP classic of 82 Flutterkicks for the 82nd Airborne.
With time to spare, Chinstrap led us in a minute of low-plank hole diggers and 5 OYO burpees to round out the morning.
