30, yes you read that right 30 warriors rose to greet the dawn of a new day. Today was an F3 olympiad of leadership. According to legend, it went a little something like this.
Today there would be 10 Qs each with a 5 minute punishment session with a one minute transition between.
Round #1 Hardywood (YHC)
COP: Mosey to field IC SSH, DQ, Merkins regular, merkins right foot in the air, merkins left foot in the air
Transition #1 10 burpees
Round #2 Kubota – All pax plank and man at the end begins agility drills between the planking pax. First time was on foot, second time was bear crawl.
Transition#2 10 burpees
Round #3 Wilson – Triple check. One pax hang (or shamefully watch Rosie do toes to bar), one pax run to hydrant for 10 merkins, one pax do pull ups on the dips bar.
Transition #3 20 merkins
Round #4 Bodos – Trail Run to the bottom of pipe line.
Transtion #4 10 merkins
Round #5 Shakedown – The Magoosh! Pax line up in two lines. Pax on the end yells drop and on command the remainder of the pax drops to the ground, completes one merkin and moves three paces to the right (or left) completes another merkin and gets up.
Transition #5 10 Hand Release Merkins
Round #6 Upchuck – Five Minutes of Fury. The ground and pound round included IC Flutter Kicks, Dips, Rosalitas, and an ungodly amount of Reverse Crunches.
Transition #6 10 burpees
Round #7 – Lab Rat. Run up Love Hill to the Amphitheatre.
Transition #7 10 Merkins
Round #8 – Posh. Ascending WWII Situps. Complete 1 on the first step, 2 on the second step….you get the idea.
Transition #8 10 Merkins
Round #9 – Hitchhiker. Sprints. Perhaps the most painful thing to do at the end of the exercise and this is what he chose. There’s really not much more to say here. The brain of YHC shutoff after the 3rd round and we could have done 4 or 400, no one can really be sure.
Transition#9 10 Merkins
Round #10 Seymour. Skip, shoot and look shameful for the length of the field, then upon his call sit on the ground and look bewildered. In addition to describing all of YHC’s family vacations, this is also what transpired for the Cleveland Cavaliers in game one of the finals. Mosey back to the flag.
Transition #10 Six inches
Numberama, namerama, Shakedown took us out.
News: July 4th Convergence. See Kubota. This will be at Tredegar for an hour long sufferfest with a post workout coffeteria on site. In the immortal words of our founding fathers on the day Jefferson signed the Delcaration of Independence “Hey Ben Franklin I know this place in little Philly with some baller breakfast tacos and super hot waitresses, are you in? And don’t invite Sam Adams. He keep going on and on about this British girl he was dating, then he shot her brother and he won’t shut up about how complicated it is now. Oh god, and don’t even get him started talking about Harvard.”.
Puppy Pile: June 23rd 7:05am. Sippy Cup has the Q.
Moleskin: Thanks a ton fellas for absolutely bringing it. We covered a ton of ground and it was awesome to have 4 first time Qs. Wilson said it best, “If you can count to 3 then you can Q”.
A great time at ETs as always. With this disgusting and rambunctious bunch, outside was a excellent option. Discussed at ETs was how much Lab Rat loves and I mean LOVES The Creek as an AO. He asked us if we would be interested in moving all Richmond F3 workouts to that location. This has been tabled for Corporate. Fingers crossed.
YHC has made the call to upgrade Trabek to Moops. All credit for this genius F3 name goes to Lab Rat. Here’s the dissection. “Trabek” was said to be good at trivia -> In the 7th episod of the 4th Season of Seinfeld George plays Trivial Pursuit with Bubble Boy -> George asks the question “Who invaded Spain in the 8th century?” Bubble Boy answers “the Moors,”. -> George replies ” the question card says that the answer is “the Moops.”. Clearly it was a misprint and the Moors wreaked more havoc on Spain that all of our sweaty asses combined do at ETs.-> Welcome Moops.
