AO: The Battery


Around 70 degrees and humid, but felt good.


Took a mosey and stopped at 0.65 miles to do some stretching before finishing up the mosey at the bottom of the hill. Total mosey was 0.75 miles.

Stretches included, Forward Fold, WMH, LBAC, and Seal Claps. We did not perform any SSH, so maybe this whole workout was pointless and didn’t count (so why am I even doing the backblast?)

The Thang

Performed Walking Lunges up hill (when you reached the top, return to wherever the 6 was and go up again.

Performed Bear Crawls in the same fashion as Walking Lunges.

In the parking lot at top of the hill, we did a B.L.I.M.P. (intentionally left off the S; singular, not plural)

Start at one end of parking lot, performed first exercise, ran across the lot, built up to the next letter, ran back across the lot, and so on.

  • Burpees x 5
  • Lunges x 10 each leg
  • Imperial Walkers x 15 each leg
  • Merkins x 20
  • Plank Jacks x 25

Completed the exercises OYO then ran across the parking lot. Held Plank while waiting on the 6. So total was 25 burpees, 40 lunges each leg, 45 Imperial walkers each leg, 40 merkins, 50 plank jacks.

Core Power: Held plank of choice (low plank for me) for 1 minute, then rest for 1 minute. Completed 3 rounds then moseyed down to the flags.

Finished with 3 rounds of 10 burpees separated by a 1 minute rest.


Two Thoughts:

  1. Reach out to the men that may have decided to come back to F3 after not being very present (before all this crap started) and encourage them to keep pushing. The beginning of trying to get back in shape is the hardest.
  2. What are your goals? Do you have goals? (you should) Write them down and place in an area of your home/work where it will stare you down. Tell all your friends. Have them hold you accountable.


The warm-up mosey was a little longer than I had planned, but I think the long jog is a great way to complete a warm-up. Not much else was very memorable.


Looking in to launching another AO at Ooltewah High School. Obviously the name would be Hooterville.
