We started at the center point of MoH and marked the start of our tour with 5 Burpees OYO. 1st Stop on the Tour: Memorial Hill Bear Crawl up the steps, stopping at each flat for 10 Merkins (x3). 20 Dips SC Bear Crawl down the steps, stopping at each flat for 10 Mountain Climbers (x4) AYG Run up the steps (touch each step) 20 Dips SC AYG Run down the steps (touch each step) Mosey to center point for 10 Burpees OYO 2nd Stop on the Tour: Amphitheater Hold BTTW while each PAX performs 10 Merkins (x5) Hold People’s Chair while each PAX performs 20 LBCs (x5) Mosey to center point for 10 Burpees OYO 3rd Stop on the Tour: MoH Entrance AYG Sprint to MoH entrance 10 Body Weight Squats SC (led by WikiLeaks) Bernie Sanders back to center point for 5 Burpees OYO 4th Stop on the Tour: Pull-Up Bars YHC asked each PAX to think of the most reasonable number of Pull-Ups they could perform at that time. YHC then asked the PAX to shout those numbers out: (12 + 10 + 5 + 3) = (30 Pull-Ups ÷ 5 PAX) = 6 Pull-Ups each. In a rotating fashion, the PAX would perform: – 6 Pull-Ups – 12 Merkins – 18 Squats – Take a turn on spot Mosey to Shovel Flag MARY A Q never forgets… 5 Burpees OYO Then, YHC asked the PAX to think about their favorite Mary exercises. One-by-one, the PAX called out their favorites and led the rest of the PAX through the exercise: Newton – Superman (3 rounds, ~20 seconds/round) WikiLeaks – 10 WWIIs SC Cable Guy – 10 American Hammers IC Red Ryder – 10 Freddie Mercury’s IC YHC (favorite #1) – 10 Flutter Kicks IC YHC (favorite #2) – 10 Crunchy Frogs IC COT/BOM The arrival of another awesome FNG always reminds me about my first post at an F3 workout and the first time someone told me that the workouts don’t get easier, but that I’ll get stronger. This adage has personally been proven true many times over in F3 for myself and I can only assume for the other PAX that have stuck with F3 from their first post. This group is about men helping other men get better and become leaders–first in fitness, but then also in our marriages, our parenting, our workplace, and our communities. I think the same adage can be applied to all of these aspects of our life… marriage doesn’t get easier, parenting doesn’t get easier, work doesn’t get easier, but if you stick with it, you will get stronger and become the leaders we are continually striving to become.
