15 strong posted to “the best AO in all of F3 Nation” on a frosty Saturday morning. The PAX had to assemble in a different area of the parking lot because of obstructions but everyone met up for a old fashioned beatdown:
Mosey to circle for COP: 30 SSH, 15 Merkins, 20 Flutterkicks, 20 IPs
Mosey to Boulevard for Burpee Road: Run up the Blvd and do 2 Burpees per lamppost. Cross and head back at break in road and come back with 2 burpees until back at start of memorial field.
Mosey to side of Carillon for newest iteration of Touch a Tree: Touch a Tree – Tag a Partner:
Partner up. 1 goes out to touch set # of trees while other does exercise until partner returns. Switch and other one runs and T-A-T.
Round 1: 5 Trees – Donkey Kicks, Round 2 – 10 Trees – Carolina Dry Docs, Round 3: 12 Trees – Boxcutters
Mosey to Amphitheater: Decline plank down the steps in unison. 25 LBCs IC at bottom. Then scale back up steps – 5 Decline Merkins each step until back at top of Amphitheater.
Mosey to Love Hill: Partner up again – alternate run & exercise. Lunges, Broad Jumps, walk-out merkins.
Mosey back to Flag, 1 extra min of Freddy Mercurys. COT.
Pleasure to lead a large 15 strong PAX this AM. The PAX got a lot in during the beatdown and covered a lot of ground. The 40+ burpees during Burpee road got everyone off to a strong start.
The Touch a Tree – Tag a Partner worked out better than YHC had anticipated even though some PAX varied in their methods of tracking down “available” trees as instructions dictated not touching the same tree twice. On the mosey over to the Amphitheater there was mumblechatter about whether this TAT-TAP had been properly F3 Corp approved. Luckily YHC had obtained the requisite approval from Swirly at RAMM the day before. Sippy decided to do 20 trees on the last round and YHC tried to tell him but alas Sippy was going too fast for YHC to catch him.
The extended planks down the amphitheater steps were hard, maybe Offshore can show the PAX more about this “plank-off” YHC has been hearing about. T-Claps to Wilson for providing extra motivation to Lockjaw during the decline merkins up the steps. Whatever it takes to inspire! YHC was impressed how all the PAX burned through those 90 decline merkins in short order. This week has been heavy on the merkins. Flipper put in a strong showing at I believe his first dogpile. For some reason Splinter and Rosie sprinted back from Love Hill to the flag at the end.
Announcements: Swirly has Q on Monday after the Superbowl. Attendance will be recorded…
