0652 – Mr. Clean & YHC finish up the 05:30 ruck around just in time to welcome the pax.
0655 – inevitable discussion about march madness and the biggest upset in the history of all histories. And how Clemson is going to lose to Auburn by an unfathomable amount.


7 minutes of long and drawn out detail about:
– The format of the workout
– The responsibility of the Q
+    Enter Snowflake
– The importance of preparation
– The F3 Credo & “string of pearls”
+   Enter Ringwald
– The importance of being on time
– Attitude and delivery approach; impact on pax
– Who is the leader and what it means to be the leader
– How to call an exercise and how to count
At this point, the pax appeared eager to get it started as Candu was doing all sorts of strange pre-stretches and calisthenics, sooo.. we hit the Slaughter Starter (nod to Bagger Vance [Nashville] for this one)
Slaughter Starter
10 Body Builders OYO
10 Burpees OYO
10 Merkins IC
Rinse & Repeat; lots of midwife noises from Candu
Mosey to bottom of the hill for the warm-up:
SSH, IW, Hillbillies, Good Morning Abby, Crunchy Frog, Supermans all IC x 12
Around the World x 2  (clockwise/counter-clockwise): YHC had to described and demonstrate this one, likening it to a plank while rotating in a direction as if you were a compass;
Mr Clean decides to call it a protractor (wrong) and the mumblechatter takes over; Ringwald having to clarify the difference. Haven’t we been over this –> to never question my SC math knowledge

The Thang

Commence Indian Run up the hill and around the upper field (2 laps) and return to bottom of hill for two rounds of BLIMPS:
Reverse Burpees (YHC omahas to ten reps); “Reverpees”? <--- Thanks Mr. Clean Lt Dans Imperial Walkers Mtn Climbers Plank Jax St Bernard Squats ** Pax needed a breather so YHC injects the mission of F3 and the 5 core principals of F3 workouts ** BLIMP 2:
Imp Walkers
Mommy Makers
Peter Parkers
Table Saw (we did these wrong here)
Clouds started swirling, lightning started to appear and the thunder was far away; according to the Native descendants in the group — thanks, by the way, guys.
Quick time-check showed we likely didn’t have time for another BLIMP, so we moved to:
Wheel of Table Saw x 5
Wheel of Merkins x Twelb
Mosey back to pavilion for 6MOM as the lightning and thunder was starting to close in on us.
Mary: Flutter Kicks, Pretzel, Pistol LBCs, BBSU, The Very Mercurial Fred


Quick discussion on the importance of the moleskin, the sources of inspiration, etc.
“Nothing in the world is worth having or doing, unless it means effort, pain, difficulty.  I’ve never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life.  I’ve envied many a people who led difficult lives and lived them well” – Teddy Roosevelt
