The Polar Bear Closer


5 brave and fearless men showed up for F3 Batteau on a beautiful Monday morning.  Much like a donkey in a dojo, this day was gonna kick some ass.

The Thang:

COP  – 20 X SSH, Imperial Walker, LBC, Freddy Mercury, 10 Merkin

Valley of Doubt – Start with 5 merkins.  Perform 5 dips at the bottom.  Run up second hill and complete 10 merkins.  Back down to the bottom for 10 dips.  Alternating hills until 30 merkins and dips had been completed in a single set.

PF Flyer – Lunge downhill.  At each lamp post (3 total) perform 20 two count American hammers.  Finish at bottom.

Polar Bear Hunt – Perform Polar Bear Crawl (bear crawl with a merkin completed at every fifth step) for approximately 100 meters.

Short Shorts – Backs against the wall in the squat position for two minutes.  To ensure we’ll look great if 1970s basketball shorts come back in style, perform this exercise with a chosen rock of success.

20 For 20 – Carry rock of success uphill and complete 20 merkins and 20 dips.  Finish on the final set of stair another rock carry and 20 merkins, 20 dips.

Mosey back to the flag and COT

YHC was thrilled to see Oyster and Wilson rise with the sun on the southside today.  And no party like a forest hill party would be complete without Swirly and Flashdance.  Excellent work today gentlemen.  All the way around solid.  Bonus points to Flashdance for the overhead carry of the rock of up the hill of doom.

It’s an honor and a privilege gentlemen.  Dominate your Monday.
