1 penalty burpee for Ant Man’s tardiness

THA THANG:

Mosey to Quad for the Doomsday Clock for approximately 40 minutes:

Making use of the 12 spokes (sidewalks) out from the fountain, YHC had PAX perform the following rotating around each spoke like clockwork. 

  1. 10 Pam Andersons (burpee nippler)
  2. 20 Squats
  3. 30 V Ups
  4. 40 Merkins
  5. 50 Rugby Situps
  6. 60 Gorilla Squats
  7. 70 Mountain Climbers (x2)
  8. 80 Lunges (x1)
  9. 90 OH Presses
  10. 100 Plank Jacks
  11. 110 OH Claps
  12. 120 LBC’s

Following each set of exercises, PAX ran the length of spoke, performed burpees x station number (total of 78 burpees) and ran back to fountain (hub) to start next station.  An exception was made following gorilla squats and OH presses, where PAX bear crawled the length of the spoke and back.  

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC prayed us out.  YHC challenged the PAX to seek the input of each of their M’s about F3.  There has been a theme lately from several of us whose M’s have not held F3 in the highest regard for various reasons, which means that we and much more, I, have failed to properly bring back the tenets of the life-changing organization back to my home.  I challenged the PAX to bring back the feedback and vowed to create more 2F events that include the M’s and 2.0’s as we begin to emerge from Covid prison.  

MOLESKIN:

YHC had the thought to roll this oldie out after not having completed it in over a year.  Many new PAX that had not felt the burn of the Doomsday Clock so why not!  PAX were spread around the circle and YHC heard several conversations (this tells me there is much more effort to be put forth if one can carry on a park walk chat).  YHC received several complaints and groans, but only one emphatic “FU” from Rump so I will assume that he is getting stronger and the workout isn’t a cake walk since it seemed to gas most everybody else.  TClaps to Classified and Special Sauce.  Classified kept a weight vest on the entire time.  This workout sucks without added weight.  Sauce brought a speaker and playlist with minimal notice.

Club Rehab for the Beach

#musclebeach #clubrehab #backblast

Dirtbag Meatball Special Sauce Ina Rump Roast Bleep Slushii sound machine Agnes Avril DFib joined YHC for some muscle beach meets club rehab action

I’m not going to lie, I just came up with all of that workout on the fly and I don’t have the it written down but here’s my best recollection of what we did

Warmup: the usual, SSHs, ISTs, hillbillies, veggie pickers, don quixote

YHC was having some challenges connecting to Bleep’s fancy blue tooth speaker (t claps Bleep for bringing!) Rump Roast was asked to get the workout started…he was a lil slow on the uptake so YHC quickly took the reigns back over…a lot of moaning during the veggie pickers and hillbillies, sounds like the PAX didn’t do any self care after TID18K

Mosey to the field with blocks

Because this was club rehab I prefaced the lap by saying if you didn’t have it in you to do SSHs, mountain climbers, or anything else to keep the body moving but turns out we’re a bunch of stubborn assholes and all ran a lap

Bicep block work of 21s, slow curls up, slow curls down, upright rows

Core block of jackknifes, LBCs, Freddy Mercury’s, uptown crunches, flutter kicks, box cutters, heels to heaven, rosalitas

Repeato the run, bicep, core

Repeato again, throw in some Pilate leg action, a few burpees, lil baby arm circles

Meatball called YHC out that we only ran 3 laps at 6:14 so I told him he had 60 seconds to get one more in, he did but a lot of other PAX tried to be hero’s and took considerably longer than 60 seconds and caused us to go over time by a few minutes

Seemed like a decent amount of mumblechatter throughout but YHC was counting a inordinate amount but hope y’all feel like you got some good core and will be beach ready in now time!

What a way to celebrate… Yesterday way my 18th wedding anniversary and I decided to take it out on the PAX! (Joking, I’m a very lucky man to have an amazing wife that’s put up with me for as long as she has. Hoping I’ll grow up eventually)

Anyway, while I was STOKED to get Sally back out even if it was just a guest appearance, I was let down that my man Special Sauce and the #subarumafia were all MIA.  Was a ton of mumble chatter during the warm-up to the point I really don’t know how many IST’s we really did… Did anyone actually count?

I had planned to do 50 total OYO Burpees by the time we started the Balboa but, saved the last 20 for the end before we moseyed back to the start. There was some grumbling from AA that the double count lunges was a little too much. So once he was done with all of them I Omaha’d to move on to the Big Boi Sit-ups. I think that was about as far as we got before time was up. Slushii & Bleep FINALLY showed up at like 0550 or some where really close to the end but, honestly I was just glad to see them. More than I can say for someone…. 

Overall, it was a great turnout, I believe a record attendance for 2ndCT. Way to push yourself men. Thank you all for making me a better version of me.

MOLESKIN:

Wow, what a salty group this morning.  Workout started very mundane with the farmer carries/abyss merkins although I did get a personal “FU” from Rump to kick start the morning as we were rounding second!  Once we transitioned to the 11’s the real fun started.  The moans and groans started almost immediately with the first round of Cusaks and it went downhill from there as YHC exacted punishment if blocks were lowered during Cusaks and after what seemed to be half the PAX dropping their coupons after the first Cusak walk, YHC added more punishment for each block that hit the ground.  Finally fed up with the pain, the Salt King of the morning, Rump Roast, began to give the PAX lessons in shot putting as he routinely heaved his coupon to get a rest from carrying it overhead.  This elicited many choice words from the PAX as the man makers began to add up.  YHC ended the pain early and we made the mosey to the tennis courts where I practiced some reverse psychology on the PAX by allowing them to vote on whether to continue using the coupons.  The vote went in favor of continuing so I allowed them to drop the coupons and we proceeded to our suicides sans coupons.

The running was foreign to most of the West Siders but they adapted to the small amount that YHC presented.  Overall, it appears the workout was a favorite…especially on the Rump Scale.

It’s my son’s (F3 Name- Meow) birthday and wanted to honor his big day and entering the  teenage years with a “manly” workout.  Not a ton of mumblechatter other than some grumbling due to the myraid of sprints and hatred of the Wolverine (Burpee – Merkin, peter, merkin, parker, merkin, jump up).  Also Sound Machine has all the toys and the glow in the dark football was fun to throw around pre and post beatdown.  Was some discussion of  Bleep skipping and Rump Roast’s fartsacking after a HC (weird to see Slushii solo in the suburu). I guess he didn’t want a perfect week afterall! Slushii is still on target.  Overall great day, chilly day but the wind sprints made us forget about it quickly.

Moleskin:
Right off the bat, YHC heard mumble chatter about the amount of running. To be clear, while I’m not great at running, and it’s not my favorite thing to do… I’m trying to get better at it and believe I do a fair amount of running at most of my Q’s.  SO don’t be surprised when you show up to a Rump Roast beatdown and there’s running.  I asked the DJ Icebox for a “war” playlist and have to admit I should have elaborated what my “vision” was because the playlist was a turd floater for sure! 

There was lots of talk about Special Sauce not being there. Classified was so worried that it wasn’t like Sauce, he believed we should send a search party. “I don’t expect this from him”, Classified exclaimed at one point. Overall it was a great morning and start to the weekend with a group of guys I could not be more proud to be a part of.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Thankful for each man present and for Bleeps parents 53 years of marriage 

MOLESKIN:
Was hoping for a #subarumafia ride this morning but Rump Roast had some dental work done yesterday and decided it was best he take the morning off. We had a injured Alright Alright which created much more mumblechatter as he was with the group and not way ahead like normal. We all learned who is great at counting in cadence and then there is F150 doing RedBull T Merkins (#tlclaps to the speed). Was hoping to stay around the 2mile mark which we did for the day. Bleep chose sprints as the last exercise which must have worn him out because he caught a nap in on the way home this morning. F150 blew by everyone and looked like he was coming out of the gates at Churchill Downs. Agnes caught the normal amount of chatter about something he loves to talk about (IYKYK). Stingray averaged about 6yrds/punt and that is being generous. YHC had some technical difficulties with the speaker….because it died half way through the first song. Need some help from DDDDDJJJJJJ Icebox. PAX all determined that was probably the best part of the morning so they didn’t have to listen to YHC HaaBaa Playlist.

Morning started off cold but warmed up fast with the Native American run, which YHC was quickly reminded this isn’t KTT by other PAX (we may have run a mile today). YHC woke up at 3:00 AM and couldn’t fall back asleep so the ideas were flowing to get a little bit of cardio and some good coupon work in. Felt good to do Murder Bunnies again, but probably won’t feel good later.

Moleskin:
Slushii wore short and like a cut-off t-shirt under his hoodie so complained incessantly that it was cold. I have to say that it started out bumpy (Ice Box makes this stuff look so easy), between my speaker having a bad Bluetooth connection, my email kept turning sideways, and the interval timer I was about ready to say fuck it.  Then after the second round, it got better. I couldn’t hear much of the mumble chatter over the music and all those damn beeps! I heard some rumbling about Katy Trail and took that as a good sign that I was running enough in between rounds. Over all it was a great start to a Friday morning.
