Site Q - Ponzi
What the ruck is a ruck? A hike with a weighted backpack (approx 30 lbs) while stopping along the brisk walk to do some invigorating exercise. Excellent 1st F (fitness) and 2nd F (fellowship). If an FNG (Friendly New Guy) is a bit timid to post for a workout the ruck is a great intro to the pax.
One thought on “The Necropolis – Ruck (Fort Meigs Historical Site)”
Backblast – June 8, 2021
AO: The Necropolis – Fort Meigs Historic Site – Perrysburg, OH
PAX: Red Ryder, Geppetto, Bourbon, Hannibal, Casper, Mantis, Flo, Ticket, Chubbs, Huffy, Bongoledo (Bongo)
Workout: 1095 Ruck
No FNG’s so right into Mission and Principles:
F3 – Fitness, Fellowship, Faith
Mission – Plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership.
The core principles of F3 are that it must:
Be free of charge
Be open to all men
Be held outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold
Be led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary. You versus you. Modify or stop an exercise if you need to. The most important thing is that nobody gets hurt.
End with a Circle of Trust

Group would halt for car honks (four in total) and perform in cadence PT. 1st and 4th stops-(10) four count overhead presses with ruck, 2nd stop (10) four count ruck curls, 3rd stop (10) four count squats with ruck on. Finished the last quarter mile in double time.
