The Burpee Mile

5 PAX showed in the gloom for what would become an interesting experiment in upper body endurance.

We started with the usual disclosure and moseyed to the top of the drive for warm-a-rama.

Ssh, arm circles, huggy bears, monkey humpers, Merkins, and Abe Vagodas

the Thang:

We started an Indian run. The last man does 5 Burpees and then sprints to catch the PAX. The next man does the same. We made it through 2 rounds before arriving at a swing set.

1/2 PAX completed inverted rows on the swings while the others completed 20 dips. Flapjack

1/2 the PAX completed swing merkin and crunch, or SMCs if you will, while the others performed 20 step ups on a nearby picnic table.

We completed 2 rounds.

The next set involved partners pushing down on each end of a sea saw while the odd man completed 10 pull ups or 5 second hangs. We rotated until all PAX completed 10 pull ups.

Back to the Burpee Mile. We ran the Indian run until all PAX completed 1 set of Burpees. Back to the missing shovel flag.

Side story: it seems iteration 2 of the Trojan shovel flag was lacking some Trojan strength and is in need of some TLC (Tools, Loctite, and chicken bands).

At the location where the shovel flag would be we completed ~8 minutes of Mary which included 50 continuous crunches.

Count-a-rama Nam-a-rama

Announcements: need a new site Q for The Trojan.

Prayers for healing of some PAX on IR and those effected by severe weather recently.

Introduction: Disclaimer – F3 is always outdoors, rotationally led, men only, ends with a circle of trust, and each man is responsible for his own workout, so the exercises may be modified as needed.

Warm-O-Rama: Modified shuttle with jogging, high knees, butt-kickers, “open/close the gate” side shuffle, carioca, bending, jumping and backwards jogging and sprinting.  PAX then moseyed to park outbuilding for two sets of descending planks held for a 10 count. BTTW sets were interrupted by the most ridiculous Indian run ever.  PAX performed a line of inch worm exercises while the Six duck-walked to the front. It quacked me up ( I should have shot a video).

This was followed by exercises in cadence including: Abe Vigodas, side straddle hops, seal jacks, American hammers, plank punches, mountain climbers, Peter Parkers, cobra, superman stretch, and some crazy back-twisting yoga pose that defied the laws of physics.

The Thang: “Treasure Hunt” Q referenced Matt 6:19-21, “. . . where your treasure is there your heart will be also.” Q encouraged PAX to add some treasure to their chests, literally and figuratively by exercising and memorizing the inspirational/ motivational quotes found in the treasure chest at one end of the field.  Much to the chagrin of the passing train that attempted to obfuscate all instructions, Q explained the cross-field partner exercises which were also printed on folding chairs at each end of the field.  Cross-field exercises one way included: bear crawl, crab walk, hopping, lunges, backward jogging, imperial walkers, and Frankensteins. Opposite cross-field exercise was 30-30-30, ie. jogging, running, sprinting.  Exercises at the opposite end of the field from the treasure chest were Burpees, Merkins, LBC’s, star jacks, reverse crunches, and squats.

PAX then moseyed back to shovel flag for CoT.
CoT: count-o-rama, name-o-rama, naming of FNG, announcements and prayer requests.
