THE SCENE: Rain, but hey, at least it’s warm. Plus we have a Pav-a-lon, so who cares.
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
Everybody get a coupon from the CMU pile and head for cover. Pax does SSHs while the Q goes to get his own coupon. BAC forward and back, IC; A little of this here and that over there; Windmills, IC, slowing the last 5 down to Abe Vigoda speed. Finish up with 20 or so Imperial Squat Walkers.
Brick joins a bit late into the Warm, so we all accompany him to the CMU pile for his coupon, and run a lap of the AO back to cover. Then the real work begins
- 3 sets of 11s: Table Rows/Box Jumps; Dips/Monkey Humpers; Merkins/BBS
- CMU Curls, IC, x 25 on the 4 ct;
- Introducing the Sidewinder: Stand the CMU up; Side plank supported on one elbow with the upper foot resting on the top of the CMU. Get your hips off the ground. Move the knee of the lower leg up to touch the elbow of your upper arm. That’s one rep. Do 10 of these. Then switch sides, so the other elbow is on the ground and other foot is on the CMU. 10 more reps.
- Start a variation of 7 of Diamonds. Instead of reps at each corner, do a lap around the building in the dry and then do the reps. Start by bear crawling down the length of the building on one side; mosey to the next length and lunge down that side, back to the pavilion. After each lap, do an exercise:
- For the first 4 laps, 7 burpees;
- Next 4 laps, 14 flutters (4 ct);
- Next 4, 21 Pickle Pounders
- Next 4, 28 Squats
Turns out that 7 of diamonds thing takes a long time, so we cut it short after the burpees and one round of flutters. Mary was more flutters with a CMU held overhead, followed by 21 Pickle Pounders.
COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
About 4 years ago, I posted at an F3 workout for the first time. Edit was the Q. I weighed about 30-35 pounds heavier than I do now. I barely survived. His BOM was “Consistency.” Though I’ve been much more consistent in a lot of aspects of my life (particularly posting at F3), I’ve learned that consistency in all phases – my walk with God, my role as a father, husband and friend, in my professional life – requires constant effort. We’ll fail for sure, but keep at it. The payoff for the effort is worth it.
Prayers for Rainbow’s friend John as he struggles with liver problems and for Jinxy as he recovers from his hip injury.
Keep bringing in napkins, trash bags and copy paper!!!
