Melting Pot


A group of Gridiron warriors were joined by guests from North Carolina, RVA PAX checking the Gridiron AO off their summer tour list, and the humidity.   This melting pot of 13 strong redwoods engaged in a traditional Gridiron beatdown, and here is what transpired:

  • COP
    • 25 SSH
    • 20 Russian soldiers
    • 15 DQ
    • 25 FM
    • 10 2x merkins
    • 15 Scorpion Kicks
    • 15 Pickle Pounders
    • 20 Helicopters
  • Mosey to the grassy knoll for 10 minutes of burpees
  • 40 APD
  • Mosey to the football field for a Lindsay with dips and heels to heaven
  • Mosey to the school field for a beast
    • Scorpion dry docks
    • WWII sit-ups
    • Storm squats
    • Crab cakes
    • LBC
    • Merkins
  • Mosey to back to the football field for an abbreviated arch loader
    • Bear crawl
    • Crawl bears
    • Bunny hop
  • Circle up for a ring of fire (10 merkins)
  • COT with YHC taking us out

Great to have our visitors from North Carolina join us.  If you have not met Gypsy, he is part of the Charlotte crew that has expanded the F3 flag, and he is joining workouts all over the country this summer.  Our tour of the Richmond AO’s is nothing compared to the stamps on his F3 passport.  Also, he did an hour long run before joining us, working up a good lather.  No sense in rattling his cage, even White Deer figured that one out.  The remaining NC guests were welcomed additions.  Yukon got double respect at COT, and Liverpool felt right at home joining in White Deer’s early mumble chatter.  Also, excited for the guests from various parts of RVA during the summer tour.  Good to see Offshore and Opus today.  Definitely something worthy of thanksgiving during COT.

Strong effort from all of the PAX today as we kept a good pace in spite of the rising humidity.  Summer of Gridiron burpees has begun in earnest!

God is good all the time!

  1. Great job Atilla, that was a long, slow burn.

    Glad to meet F3 Brothers I’ve never met and guests to F3 RVA. Today did not disappoint.

    I think the motto for The Gridiron should be “Starting at 7:00 AM because you’re gonna need the extra hour of sleep”

    See y’all in the gloom.

  2. Is this a phased invasion from NC? 10 minutes of Burpees should send them back home.

  3. Really enjoyed seeing the crew out here. Great group of guys! Welcome to the out of towners! Great beat down. I am stealing some of these for my next daville workout!
