The Battlefield


Boot camp style workout at the Shops at Fallen Timbers. Group will meet next to the movie theater. Easy access to the Wabash Cannonball Trail for some running or rucking. Also, plenty of blacktop to make use of, not to mention a little green space across from the theater.

    Opening Comments:

    At 6:50 am on January 1st 2011, 34 men gathered in the gloom. This set into motion a series of events which ultimately delivered you to the gloom too.

    The shovel flag is a symbol which we have grown to love, but it didn’t even exist at the beginning of this first workout so they naturally gathered under the flagpole.

    They didn’t know it at the time, but they were launching an unprecedented crusade against sad clowns that would give rise to new found strength in men like you and like me. We are all Qrusaders fighting for ourselves and now too for the men next to us.

    It is not an accident or some sort of coincidence that you posted here today. You posted because you demand more from yourself. Only you know if you are reaching your limits. Stand tall. Feel strong. Be proud. Unshackle your warrior!

    Welcome to the Gloom gentlemen.

    • Warmup with Motivators

    • Today’s beatdown is not the exact workout performed by the men at the first post, but inspired by it. Unless specified otherwise, all exercises will be to a 34 count in recognition of the 34 men posting at that first workout back in 2011.
    • Run the loop around the cinema and end back in the grass where the work will be performed.
    • In Order (Al Gore when finished until the six finishes):
    o Merkins
    o Wide-Arm Merkins
    o Diamond Merkins
    o Military Merkins (knuckle push-up with your elbows in tight to your sides)
    • Run the small loop around the cinema
    • In Order (plank when finished until the six finishes):
    o Hydraulic Squats (squat- right knee down- left knee down- right knee up- left knee up- stand up)
    o Dolly (on your 6 with legs 6” off ground- spread apart- bring together)
    o Flutter Kick (4-count)
    o LBC’s
    • Run the small loop around the cinema
    • In Order (plank when finished until the six finishes):
    o Side Straddle Hop
    o Burpees
    o Mountain Climbers
    • Run the small loop around the cinema
    • Howling Monkeys (Circle up- 10 monkey humpers each around the circle like dominos- when done you hold it until everyone gets a turn to do theirs… faster is better here.)
    • Mosey back to the shovel flag with the following note attached to it:
    The Campos was a workout group that grew to problematic numbers and created the first starfish style spinoff – this spinoff was the birth of F3. The Campos Qrusaders left the first shovel flag as a tongue in cheek gift to this first pax with the following note attached to it.

    “Pax (if you last),

    Blood, Sweat, Toil & Beer (to bastardize a great phrase) will breed a deep regard called Brotherhood. If you give yourselves to this endeavor, you will find it, and it will find you.

    I hope you reach a point today or next Saturday — where you want to quit. So, in the union of men, “you against you” becomes a public and/or common struggle. It’s here you will see there is much more in you that you’ve withheld — or in your weakness, you’ve rationalized away.

    It’s time; but if you don’t care, we won’t care either.

    What’s it gonna be, son??
