Half way is better than no way

I hadn’t done webbs in a while so I wanted to incorporate some into the workout today. 4 webbs, to be exact. However, that seemed like it might take too long so I decided we’d modify and do Half Webbs. Besides, it’s Wednesday and we’re halfway through the week!

11 other dudes joined me for the bootcamp and 2 MASHers (Penalty Box and Bunyan) did their thing in relatively warm weather. I had to look at my weather app on my phone twice this morning to make sure I was looking at Waxhaw. 48 degrees? That doubled yesterday’s temps!

DiCCS done.


I like to do a moving warmup, so we circled the student lot, stopping at different locations to do SSHs, Imperial Walkers, Moroccan Night Clubs, Calf Stretches, Glidah Stretches, Hurry Stretches (we’re real inventive with the names here), and ending with some Mountain Climbers. Mosey back to COTish area

The Thang

Now begin the Half Webbs. What’s that, you may ask? A standard Webb is a 1:4 ratio. The Half Webb is a 1:2 ratio. So we started with 1 Merkin and 2 Air Presses and worked our way up to 10 Merkins and 20 Air Presses. On one hand, it’s easier because there are less Air Presses. On the other hand there’s less of a break between the Merkins…Regardless, everyone was happy they were done. Or so they thought.

Mosey half a lap to the opposite corner of the student lot

Half Webb number two: 1 Jump Squat and 2 Bonnie Blairs (1=1). I think it was Tanyatine who said this one probably looked better on paper. He was correct. Sticking with the “half” theme, I audibled and we made it to 5 Jump Squats and 10 Bonnie Blairs and that was quite enough. Mosey another half lap around the student lot to the corner we started at.

Half Webb number three: 1 Big Boi Sit-Up and 2 American Hammers (1=1). We went back to 10 and 20 with this round, but someone (Das Boot swears it wasn’t him) was trumpeting some noxious gasses nearly the whole time. It sounded like maybe someone thoroughly enjoyed Taco Tuesday. Another half lap mosey.

Half Webb number four: 1 Burpee and 2 Side Straddle Hops. On the mosey I mentioned this one might get another audible and I was correct. We finished with 5 and 10.

With the Half Webbs out of the way we made our way to the rock pile and grabbed a lifting rock as well as a partner. Standard partner work now with one lifting and the other running until all reps are complete:

  • 100 Curls
  • 100 Weighted Squats
  • 100 Shoulder Presses
  • 100 Bent Over Rows
  • 100 Curb Dips

Dispose of your rock and your partner and mosey back to the Jump Squat/Bonnie Blair/Burpee/SSH corner.

With roughly 8 minutes remaining we needed a bit more running. Starting with one Merkin and incrementing by one at each stop, we snaked back and forth along the parking lot lanes. One at the bottom of the hill, 2 at the middle crest, 3 at the COT end, 4 at the middle, and so on until you reach 10 Merkins or until time expired.


4 Half Webbs using half the student lot parking lot. Still better than fartsacking. Dromedary is a bit further than most of the other workouts I go to (Clean Slate notwithstanding) but it’s good to get out there as I see PAX I don’t normally see. Crazy to think that I had never been until the beginning of September. We did the Passport Challenge, which was an attempt to get PAX to travel outside their comfort zone. Even though that’s over for now, I’d still encourage guys to try a new site every once in a while. Get up 5 minutes earlier. Drive a bit further. Meet some PAX you don’t know or don’t know well. There are some cool AOs out there that you’re missing out on.
