Intro: YHC’s disclaimer included the admission that he had nothing specifically planned for the workout, but with F3 veterans like the ones assembled here, we can easily make it up as we go. And so we did. 11 men were open-minded enough to “just let it happen.”
Disclaimer: 1 FNG. Welcome T-Ball, Nick Miller (M&M’s 2.0)
Warmup: YHC tossed an orphaned tennis ball to T-Ball and told him to hang on to it thru the entire workout. Each time the ball hits the ground, ever man will do 10 burpees. 10 seconds later, “Nick, toss me the ball”, which he does. The ball bounces off YHC and on the ground. 10 burpees IC.
Next, Shortcake rolls up, allegedly on the way home from the gym (like you actually pay to workout?). “Shortcake, we were all just sharing our least favorite exercises. What’s yours?” Monkey humpers. Ok, IC x20.
“Shortcake, what’s your next least favorite?” He replies, “Suicides”, and then promptly leaves.
Mosey to the armory wall. “Nick, let me see that ball for a quick sec.” All of the men, in chorus, “DON’T DO IT!”
Thang: Half the men assumed People’s Chair on the wall, while the other half grabbed an empty bucket each from the cage, and lined-up opposite a wall-squater. We’ll do an exercise, then do 3 more reps while winding up Rock, Paper, or Scissors. A tie results in both men doing a burpee. The winner does People’s Chair. The loser runs to the cage with the bucket and adds 5 double handfuls of sand.
Hand Slap Merkins x15
“Nick, I need that ball…” Nothing.
Calf Raises x60
Mountain Climbers x20
Reverse Lunges x20
With the buckets about 2/3 full, the men circled-up. Do 1 OHP, then pass the bucket. When YHC handled all five buckets, 2 OHP, pass. 3 OHP, 4 OHP, 5 OHP, 6 OHP, 5 OHP, 4 OHP, 3 OHP, 2 OHP, 1 OHP. Shoulders were nice and toasty now.
Half the men started walking with the buckets, while the other half sprinted to the flag and did merkins until the buskets arrived. Flip flop and sprint to the picnic shelter.
Make a pit stop at the playground to do inverted rows x20.
Sprint/Carry buckets to the other picnic shelter. Do step ups.
Sprint/Carry to the horseshoe pits. Dips x20. Rest. Dips x20. Rest. Dips x20.
Sprint/Carry to the opposite end of the parking lot and pair-up.
Man #1 runs with the bucket to the middle sidewalk, while man #2 does merkins. Then man #2 advances the bucket to the far sidewalk, then man #1 advances to the middle sidewalk, then man #2 brings it home. Shortcake suicides.
Dump the buckets under the pull-up bars, stow the buckets, do 5 pullups, then mosey back to the flag.
Mary: Pickle pounders x60.
Numberama, Namerama, Pledge, Announcements, Prayer Requests:
Moleskin: Welcome FNG T-Ball (short for tennis ball). You did a great job protecting that ball, with the help of 9 grown men afraid of burpees. There was the usual mumble chatter and plenty of cussing Shortcake for the suicides. Good job all the way around. I appreciate men who can make a game out of anything.
