Moleskin: 

This routine wasn’t as physically taxing as a typical Hoff special and I hope we did enough for you guys.  Having a knee injury made it a little difficult to plan the workout and YHC had to call an audible 10 minutes in as the planned routine wasn’t quite working out.  The Pax surprised us with 14 and what was planned was only written out for 8…but sometimes, these “on-the-fly routines can actually work out well.  

Strong work all around from the Pax.  Welcome to our 2 FNG’s today and we look forward to helping getting you guys and all others prepared for the GORUCK Custom which is quickly approaching and will be here before you know it!  

SPEARHEAD is a site dedicated to GORUCK preparation.  Some of the things we do are unconventional by design.  Some routines focus solely on smoking your cardio, strength and muscle endurance.  Others target mileage under heavy weight (Thursday mornings at 04:45) and some, like today, give you a mix of a few things the Cadre’s may throw at you (i.e. Shimmy, Shim, Tunnel of Love, Backwards Bear Crawl, Partner Carry, etc).  You never know what to expect when you post at SPEARHEAD, our guys a little out there…(I believe I heard someone, maybe DK or Liquor Cycle asking to get in a creek today…lol you guys are awesomely insane), but we love what we do and welcome all to come and see what a taste of GORUCK is like.  We promise you’ll leave tired and dirty. 

As always it is an honor to lead you today. 

Respectfully, 

The Hoff

  1. Great workout, Hoff!

    Due to my two week hibernation and food/drink binge, I cheated plenty. I like how you and LC kept calling me out for cheating though. Not fair! haha

    I am not happy with you, however, considering you were buddy carrying people with a hurt knee. I need you healed up by Bragg Heavy!!!!!

    Great time out there today, guys. Hope to see you all on Thursday morning.

  2. Thanks BTB! Not calling you out, just encouraging you…next time, please keep your pants on!!

    About the Knee, naturally I try to work through injuries…might not be smartest thing, but after Heavy and Custom I’ll allow maybe 2 weeks to heal (if my body is lucky, lol)
    Thanks again to the Pax. The routine was a little chaiotic and needed audibles, so working off the cuff today.
