Backblast: Northern Aggression, Simplicity

Fourteen loyal pax and Fanny Pack (Kotters!) assembled begrudgingly to be better at this early hour. After a brief disclaimer, the pax ventured to the center of the playground for Warmarama.

Okay, so when did we become such whiners about a little wet ground?? Thankfully the complaining pax were able to hitch up their skirts for a little warming up that consisted of:

  • SSH’s, 15 IC
  • Don Quixote’s, 15 IC
  • Seam Rippers, 15 IC
  • Bent Arm Sungods, SS, 15 Forward, reverso

To the shelter for the instructions:

Four exercises, performed AMRAP, done in rotation and circling the tree at the end of the field after stopping for each exercise until completing 120 of each:

  • Merkins
  • Carolina Dry Docks
  • WWII’s
  • Squats

The emphasis was on form, but modification crept in…


  • Cindy Crawford’s, 20 IC, reverso
  • LBCs, 30 IC
  • American Hammers, 25 IC

Pax: Gilmore, Boone’s Farm, Slice & Dice, Flounder, Testimony, Jane, Fanny Pack, Sprinkler, Epstein, Madoff, Lovie, Fortran, Change Order, Pacer, Dr. Evil QIC

COT: Flounder (hip), S&D’s friend, Josh, Lovie‘s dad (knee), Sludgefest

Always an honor to lead—hope you got enough!
