21 F3RVA regulars and 2 FNGs showed up at Dogpile for BDay beatdown that went something like this:
Mosey to grass circle for COP. Exercises included Invisible Jumprope, merkins, LBCs, Hillbillies and DQs all IC.
YHC announced the Q was being taken over by K2, Kswiss and 7-11.
K2 Q – Mosey to the Rusty Cage for 11s. Complete 10 pullups and run to the fire hydrant for 1 squat. (even though K2 had no idea where the fire hydrant was located). Back to the cage for 9 pullups with a return to the hydrant for 2 squats. Repeato until 1 pullup and 10 squats.
KSwiss Q (VQ) – Dora 1,2,3. Partner with a PAX member and complete the following – 147 v-ups (what the heck is a v-up), 247 in and outs (Gas Pump), and 347 LBCs. While one partner is completing the exercises, other partner lunges across the short side of the field. Switch upon returning and repeato until team has finished the number of exercises.
7-11 Q (VQ) – Mosey to the amphitheater for Self Destruction. Starting on the first step complete the following, 1 SSH, 1 Merkin, 1 v-up (what the heck is a v-up). Increase number of exercises by 1 as you ascend the steps of the amphitheater.
Mosey back to the flag. Numberama, Namearama, YHC and 7-11 took us out with some thoughts on leadership.
Announcements – HoneyDo and Upchuck are coordinating helping a group of runners training for the Monument Ave 10 K. See Preblast for info or see one of them.
NMS : A couple of weeks ago, YHCs daughters asked what YHC was going to do on his BDAY. YHC responded with starting the day with a Dogpile beatdown. They knew what that meant and asked who is the Q? YHC said “Me” and K2 said she wanted to Q and her sisters said they wanted to join in on the fun. BOOM. KSwiss mentioned somewhere during the conversation that she did not know the names of the exercises and YHC responded with “If you lead this group of guys, they will follow” Hence the theme of this morning’s Q. YHC learns something from his 2.0s everyday and I knew with a little help they could teach the F3RVA PAX what it means to step out of your comfort zone and Lead. A huge part of the mission of F3 is Leadership. Leadership sometimes just means sometimes we have to step up to the plate. A lack of leadership translates into a lack of initiative which equals laziness. Laziness is best friends with the Sad Clown and YHC does not tolerate laziness. The F3RVA pax does not tolerate laziness because we are Leaders in our communities. F3RVA participates in monthly challenges throughout the year and today YHC is challenging each member of F3RVA (YHC included) to find an opportunity to lead someone in your family, church, workplace, etc. through the actions we display.
A couple of observations from this mornings beatdown:
Before the workout F3RVA had no idea how to perform a v-up. Now we do and YHC hopes we never have to perform another one. (Although YHC does not think he ever completed one correctly)
It felt like Toga was in town as 7-11 did not approve of YHCs form during the Squats as she bluntly crtiqued YHC during the 11s.
Before the beatdown, 7-11 informed YHC that the three amigos were going to kill the Pax’s abs. Mission accomplished.
Herbie tells jokes much better than TYA.
YHC is changing his choices for his Podcast fight team to 7-11, KSwiss and K2. Reason=If anybody were to hit any of them the abs, they would break their hand and run home to their mommies.
Biggest Observation – There is no other was YHC would want to start a BDAY, than with the F3RVA brothers and 2.0s. Thanks for allowing YHC to stray from the normal routine this morning.
Welcome to Floater and 7-11.
