Diddly Squats

10 Extremely excited PAX, including 1 FNG, posted in a tornado for a “fun” running workout.  26F with 23mph winds.
IM, Bambi, Daisy, Wapner, Crabby PO, Jay-Z, Piper, Popeye, Pew Pew, FNG

Maestro Lap
6x Plank walkouts with Merkin
10x Shoulder Pretzels front
10x Shoulder Pretzels behind the head
15x Tempo Squats
Leg Stretches

Mosey a few feet to the north side of pool.


Diddly Squats x8- Run to the stop sign (.15 miles) at your own pace. When first PAX reaches it, everyone turns around and runs harder back.  First one back to start gets to choose an exercise.  Repeat until you are out of time.
Exercises – 25x LBC’s, 25x Flutter Kicks, 25x Freddy Mercuries, Bruce Lee cycle 20 reps each, 10x Burpees, 1 minute Plank, 15x Tempo Merkins

Slowesy to Flag

2 times through Bruce Lee’s at 20 reps each except do 100x 100’s

Definitely a windy one today.  The first turn around on the diddly squats was brutal.  Lots of mumble from Jay-Z about just repeating the same thing over and over.  Surprised he could talk since he could barely breath.  ~2.75 miles completed by Piper.  Thanks Daisy for the new run exercise name.

Happy New Year

Moleskin: Started off the year with 2 FNGs – Welcome! Brickyard and Logger chatted with Dan and Tom and took them through their first f3 workout – great men, glad to have them. I’m glad the holiday season is over, I’m looking forward to having everyone back in town and getting back into a routine.

It was a pleasure, thank you men!

We didn’t have a workout on 9/11 so I thought we should mark the occasion this week and remember the events that shaped our nation. Borrowed heavily from Q of Cornwallis on 9/11 at The Hill. Traffic jam in the parking lot when YHC arrived is a good sign. 9 men including an FNG make the choice to get better today. PAX commented that disclaimer is getting more creative every time it’s given. Discussion of whether merkins are a good idea before block activities. Turns out answer is probably not. After back to back arm beat downs this week 12 oz. curls may be a little tricky this weekend. One PAX plans to use a straw. Mary highlighted by a new BlackCat Laney Lu record of 11.

On Tuesday there were some comments that Logger makes everyone run to much. Since Logger is polite and didn’t want them to be liars – we concluded warm up with a 1 mile run and a sprint up the hill. That earned some mumble chatter. We mixed it up with some classics and some dance routines to loosen the hips and legs. Q channeled his best Cosmo to run through the Warrior routine – thanks for the coaching Cosmo – appreciated. Thanks for the return visit Picasso – look forward to seeing you regularly. Enjoyed our 2 FNG’s Paul and Spencer – hope they are hooked.

Thanks Men!

Good turnout despite the 3 HC’s that Fartsacked.  Looking at you Humdinger, Littlefoot, and TipToe.  There were some claims that I was making the workout up as we went.  Obviously, I spent hours preparing.  We welcomed our FNG, Eric Woods, to a good  workout.  Close to a Merlot Splash but not quite there.  Eric was the only one that had to work this morning so couldn’t join us for breakfast at Hoops but Maestro met us there for some good comradery. Almost lost OPP to a 10-29 on the way there but he made it.

We can’t say enough about how excited we were to see 16 PAX. There was a lot of high energy and we all had fun. Including the offline votes, it ended up as a tie, so we will have to figure out some other way of determining a winner. Next up is the battle of the Clydesdales with Wapner v Cosmo.

Until next time!
