Saturday is the start of the college football season, as Florida takes on Miami. In honor of the 2019 football season, it was decided that we would have a workout that reminded us of our glory days of playing football. The Anvil became the gridiron for the 7 teammates.
COP – SSHs, Imperial Walkers, Don Quixotes, Arm Circles, Hand Release Merkins, and LBCs
11’s up the Hill – As the PAX moseyed to the other side of the school, they performed tracers as they went through the parking lot. When the PAX arrived at the other side of the school, the YHC informed the PAX that Jerry Rice and Ronnie Lott would run hills during the off-season to get in shape for the upcoming season. The PAX ran 11s up and down the hill. At the bottom of the hill the PAX did Donkey Kicks, and at the top of the hill the PAX did squats.
Wall Sits – The YHC gave a small history lesson on Jason Garrett’s playing days in Dallas. In his memory of sitting on the bench, the PAX did Wall Sits, just like the days of Jason sitting on the bench. Every time either Emmitt Smith, Troy Aikman, or the defense scored touchdowns, the PAX would raise their arms in the touchdown position while sitting on the wall. The Redskin fans were mumbling about all of the Cowboy touchdowns.
Vince Lombardi Grind – The PAX moseyed over to the football field (I am being generous right now. The grass has not been cut all summer.) Vince Lombardi was known for having an offense that was not afraid of grinding it down the field to score a touchdown. Our version of grinding it down the field was run 10 yards, conduct 10 Merkins, Bear Crawl 10 yards, conduct 10 Merkins, and continue the cycle until we crossed into the endzone.
Buddy Ryan is Fighting – Buddy Ryan started to fight Jeff Fisher because the Pax was recognizing Vince Lombardi. The PAX started a new cycle of running 10 yards, conduct 10 WWIIs, back peddle 10 yards, conduct 10 WWIIs, and continue the cycle until we crossed into the endzone.
F3 UP/DOWNS – The PAX conducted UP/DOWNS with an F3 twist. The PAX would run in place and when the YHC would yell hit, the PAX would do one Burpee and return to running in place. The PAX conducted this exercise for several cycles.
F3 Gassers – The PAX conducted Gassers with the F3 twist. The Pax ran across the width of the football field, conduct 10 Jumping Squats, ran back across the width of the football field, conducted 10 LBCs, ran back across the width of the football field, conducted 10 Monkey Humpers, ran back across the width of the football field, and conducted 10 Merkins.
Butkus – The PAX conducted several minutes of the Butkus. (Yes, a real F3 exercise) Upon completion the PAX moseyed back to the front of the school.
