QIC – FloRida
Fifteen hardy pax and an FNG posted up for beat down under a perfect summer sky. YHC Kerri Strug’ed the mission statement, right down to the limp-hop. (Thanks Dr Evil for the attaboy and the addition to the Lexicon.) For Farkus and others too young to remember this great moment in American athletics:
Flush from his landing, YHC proceeded to completely forget the disclaimer, rushing instead to start the Warmarama:
SSH – 20 IC
Chinooks – 15 IC, mumblechatter begins with questions about the roundness of YHC’s arm circles. OK, maybe they were a little elliptical.
Cotton Pickers – 12 IC
Mountain Climbers – 12 IC
Then a creative travel in the direction of the bus lot guardrails via:
SideStep Squats Indian Run. Two lines facing each other (a mistake because no one wants to look that closely at the other Pax with the sun already up). A little confusion starting the Indian Run because QIC positioned the FNG at the end. #ShortSightedLeader. Upon reaching the guardrail, the pax paused to remember the USA’s military vets, especially those struggling with mental health issues, by knocking out: 22 Derkins OYO and 22 Dips OYO.
After which the pax continued its travel across the bus lot toward the track via Plank Indian Run. Pax holds Plank shoulder-to-shoulder while last member runs to the front and drops into the Plank line. Gilmore suggesting that some sharp stones and broken glass would be a good addition. Kapernick in no hurry to move on down the line while his fellow pax plank. YHC achieved a quiver as Doogie finished the last leg. The Pax then picked itself up and moseyed the short distance to the track for A Date with Cindy1 and Her Sisters. Lucky Charms cast hungry eyes on the QIC’s bag of tricks, hoping for snacks, but was disappointed to learn that it held only the instructions for The Thang:
Station 1 at the climbing toy:
15 Bobby Hurleys
25 Mountain Climbers IC
Station 2 at the first turn of the track
15 Monkey Humpers
20 Flutter Kicks IC
25 Parker Peters IC – Nice work by Sludge, who squeezed quality demonstrations of exercise form to the FNG in between his steady drumbeat of complaints.
Station 3 at the halfway point of the track:
5 Frog Jumps
10 Makhtar D’yiaes
15 Lt Dans
20 Homer & Marge
25 Plankjacks IC
The Pax cycled through the stations 2 2/3 times before time was called for the mosey back to the basketball court for Six Minutes of Mary:
Crunchy Frogs – 15 IC
Cindy Crawfords – 10 IC each side
American Hammers – 25
1 Cindy is a term used by certain for-profit exercise facilities to refer to a workout consisting of 5 Pullups, 10 Pushups and 15 Squats, repeated in rapid succession for 20 minutes. Essentially, the core of The Murph, and if you count laps, a good test of one’s evolving fitness. Being unconstrained by the four walls of The Box or on-the-clock instructors, we at F3 can play the field (Only in The Gloom, mind you.) and extend the fun.
