THE GOLDEN SPIKE BACKBLAST: The Longest Yard

June 21, 2019//Burke High School//AO- The Golden Spike//67 with rain and lightning//

Pax: (10) Blue Suede, Big One, Selleck, Saul, Hard Hat, Merch, Safe Ride, Tonight Show, Honey Badger, Folsom.

Q: Folsom

The PAX meet at the shovelflags at 5:29, because most were waiting in their cars to have a few extra minutes of dryness. The mission statement was made; the disclaimer was made; the beatdown was begun.

Red Bull Warm O’ Rama(go as quickly as possible)

  1. Butt Kickers, ICx20
  2. Tappy Taps, ICx8
  3. Copperhead Squats ICx12
  4. Shnooks, forwards and backwards, ICx10
  5. Tempo Merkins, ICx10
  6. Mountain Climbers, ICx10
  7. Jump Tucks x10
  8. Mosey around the track, with Folsom calling out the percentage of speed the PAX should be traveling at.  Folsom called anywhere from 30% to 100% during the ¼ mile mosey.

The Thang: The Longest Yard

Folsom had the PAX line up across the end zone for a march down the field to score a touchdown. After years of research, scientists have discovered the hardest way to travel down a football field. Folsom was excited to share this scientific breakthrough with the PAX. The discovery was a move called the LL Cool J. Which is a lunge walk for two steps (LL), a burpee, try to jump forward (Cool), and a standing broad jump (J). Every 20 yards, Folsom called the PAX to huddle up for a core workout. Casket Kickers, Freddy Mercury’s, Reverse Crunches, and LBC’s were all done ICx20, while Big Boys were done by 1 is 1 to 20. After reaching the end zone, Folsom lead the PAX on a mosey back to the opposite end zone because the first time was so nice, Folsom decided to do it thrice. Unfortunately, lightning struck a little too close halfway through the second trip down field, and Folsom called Omaha to lead the PAX on a dead sprint back to their cars. The lightning ended the beatdown so it’s only fitting that it ends the backblast as well.

Aye- Folsom
