The Breaching Whale


8 stud muffin stallions hit the gloomy grounds of Timberwolf, paused for the garbage truck, then hit the gloom running. According to the lady in her car waiting for us to leave, this is how it went down.

Mosey around the front of the school, with mublechatter along the way. Circle up in bus parking lot. Extended Disclaimer as we were doing an IRON PAX challenge today. Then extended warmerama as such.

Mosey to football field for

THE THANG (Killer B’s) (Wu-Tang Forever)

Line up on the goal line for

  • Broad jump 10 yards
  • 10 burpees
  • 10 Bonnie Blairs (AKA Ball Dippers, AKA Mike Tyson’s)
  • 10 Big Boy Sit Ups (AKA WW2s, AKA WW1s)

Repeat that 3 times, ending at the 30 yard line, then bear crawl back.

Repeat that whole routine 4 times, then mosey BTTF via the “shortcut” (thanks Hermie). Passed by the horseshoe but did not engage.

Numberara, Namerama, announcements (see comment), YHC took us out.


Awesome work out there today gents, that routine was no joke! We ended up getting in 120 each of Burpees, Ball Dippers, and WW2s. Thanks for indulging YHC in this Iron PAX practice run. The actual routine was 5 rounds, without breaks, seeing how fast it can be done.

The name of the back blast comes from Tater, who mentioned that the excellent breathing technique exhibited by Hermie during the later rounds of burpees reminded him of a breaching whale.
