The AMRAP 360ish

Posted on

YHC was looking forward to the Q today, but did not find a ton of time to write this Q until late last night. Based on necessity, YHC decided to keep it simple. Try to work every muscle group, try to give each a group a break without taking an actual break, increase work capacity, […]

Introduction: YHC, Golden Pinky, and Grunge took to the trails for a 3 mile EC run. It was cold. It was rooty. It was rocky. It was fantastic. Grunge is technically on IR due to a case of broken ribs, so he only ran. Griswold busted out some pullups, and then we assembled for the ME. […]

The Plan

Introduction: This is my first AMRAP Q and it was a swap with Chef Tell. The weather was a big question mark so I was nervous I’d be the only out there. To my surprise we had 5 PAX arrive (mostly) on time and eager to embrace the day’s workout. Warm-O-Rama: 50 side straddle hops […]

Too Cold To Think

Posted on

Coming to the AO as ‘just’ a PAX, I looked forward to being led this morning, and not leading. It was too cold to even think. Unfortunately, a different kind of cold took hold of the scheduled Q, and Griswold and YHC co-Qd those PAX inclined to come out this AM….that would be…the two of […]

The Santa’s Sleigh Mile Slog!

Posted on

This morning was the last AMRAP before Christmas, and since Christmas is YHC’s favorite holiday, a special workout had to be brought out. Before that workout, 3 PAX embarked on a 45-minute ruck in the BC gloom, with a 40lb sandbag for a coupon. This was YHC’s first ruck, and it was awesome. Post EC […]

Bench Press: 500 reps. Say what?!?!

Posted on

For EC YHC and Chef Tell met at the playground and alternated between pull ups and various sandbag exercises. It was casual, but enough of an effort that we were thoroughly warmed up when Griswold rolled in for the main event. Warmup: SSH x20 IC Arm Circles x10 IC Reverse Arm Circles x10 IC Willie […]

AMRAP/ALRAP

Posted on

This is my kind of AO. A site dedicated to doing steel and reps and as little running as possible. I’m thinking of naming a new AO #ALRAP in its honor. As you are aware, the site, AMRAP stands for as many reps as possible. I felt that today’s workout should live up to the […]

AMRAP Thanksgiving Day Parade

Posted on

Four PAX for The Butcher EC. Nothing like pushing the sled to get warmed up on a fine Thanksgiving morning. We were joined by three more PAX for the ME. Great to see Chum post for his first AMRAP workout! Loved seeing a new face out there. Warm-up: SSH Arm circles BWS Merkins The Thang: […]

Back to Basics

Posted on

A cold morning is perfect for some sled work, and The Butcher was there to keep us all warm. YHC, Chef Tell and Rambler met up at 0445 to test that theory. It was painfully confirmed with 10 total trips for each PAX before hydration and breathing was required. After the soul crushing EC we […]
