The BackBlast:

This workout is borrowed from an idea called “Minutes” from F3 The Fort:

  • Stand in a circle.
  • Do one exercise for one minute.
  • Rest for ten seconds.
  • Repeat until 45 minutes are up.

We did a few regular exercises (SSH, merkins, strawberry pickers etc), but the special sauce of this workout was phony burpees. Here are some examples:

  • Hand release merkins and then a jump
  • 3 merkins than 3 SSHs
  • 3 LBCs and then a Bobby Hurley
  • 3 box cutters and then 3 high knees
  • 3 mountain climbers and then a squat

Many of the minutes were taken up with these combined exercises: one on the ground and one on our feet. We occasionally broke up this pattern by using 1 minute to run a lap of the parking lot.

Great turnout this morning. Almost half the PAX did a ruck workout, but there was still more than a dozen of us in the main workout.
