Cold Cranking Amps are Real!!!


Cranking amps are the numbers of amperes a lead-acid battery at 32 degrees F (0 degrees C) can deliver for 30 seconds and maintain at least 1.2 volts per cell (7.2 volts for a 12 volt battery). In other words, CA/cranking amps determine how much power you have to start your car in most climates.

For those of you who missed it Saab had car problems, thanks to splinter for a speedy Uber ride home.  I mentioned that the cause of the car issue was due to cold cranking amps and the pax replied with “ha ha that’s funny”  well I hope the car makes a speedy recovery Saab!!!

Ok lets get started: 17 motivated men were up at o dark thirty for 45 minutes of Mary.


5 minutes of chiropractic approved stretches plus rotational Merkins 10 left 10 right

Plan of the Day:

6 rounds of 4 square: Station 1-20 Merkins station 2-10 two count hanging flutter kick station 3-10 over hand pull ups, station 4-20 two count SSHs.

Rounds 5-6 consisted of 20 mountain climbers, 10 hanging knee to chest, 5 under hand pull ups and 20 jump squats.

Grand finale: Merkin 10 count Indian Run back to the flag.

Well thanks again men for letting me lead today. I always feel humbled and blessed to be apart of this group!!  FYI  Lab Rat informed me that my flag was not up to F3 standards so I will be going back to the hardware store to make the approved flag.  I will present the flag for a CGI (commanding general’s inspection) ie Lab Rat for his approval.

See you in the Gloom, its was great to see Flipper back in action!!

  1. Alright, since I got called out on my flag snobbery, I will post this:

    If anybody would like to build or have built for them a shovel flag in the “Swamp Rabbit” style (see Lab Rat, Circle K, or Splinter), I will be happy to supply the drill bit, drill, hand saw for said project. Or, I will build you one and you pony up the cost of materials (maybe $30?) +1 quality craft beer (for labor). I can build 5 just as easy as 1.

    See Lab Rat for details.


  2. I appreciated the props Flashdance…”back in action” Your a Chiropractor I’m a Chiropractor… I see what you did there…just so you know…none of the stretching was approved and will see what the board says…however does sound like you could become a mechanic.. Great Q

    • I never said I was licensed, so the board won’t be able to find me. I thought the whole licensed thing was to constrictive. Are you going to the VCA this weekend?

    • I overheard a Mechanic claim that one of the great features of the Land Rover was that you never need to Reset the ground; plus he added that it’s unmistakable reliable until water, gas or air gets to the engine. TYA, let me Paraphrase, BLAH BLAH BLAH….
