Humid but rain held off


Mosey’d from the parking lot to the track, gathered round the bluetooth speaker playing some sweet yacht rock jams for the slaughter starter
10 burpees, 9 squats, 8 burpees, 7 squats, 6 burpees, 5 squats, 4 burpees, 3 squats, 2 burpees, 1 last squat, spared the last 10 squats and saved them for the thang

The Thang

Orange cones marked off 100ish yards on both the straightaways on the track
Yellow cones were also setup on the first straightaway every 25 yards for 125 yards

Beginning at the first straightaway we performed burpee broad jumps for 100 yards, mosey’d the first curve, bear crawled the next straightaway 100 yards and mosey’d the next curve until we reached the first yellow cone to begin suicides on the rest of the yellow cones.
After suicides we started it all over again at the first orange cone for more burpee broad jumps. On and on until time is called.

With 5 minutes remaining we once again did the slaughter starter (finisher?). Only got to the 6 burpees before calling time.

2 pax completed 3 rounds of the fun. Kudos to Mr. Met for sprinting the last bit of the suicides to finish his 3rd round.

Good times.


The first 3 weeks of the Shot House launch have covered the first 3 F’s. This week we covered the core principles:

F3 workouts …

  • Are free of charge
  • Are open to all men
  • Are held outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold
  • Are led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary
  • End with a Circle of Trust


Yacht rock makes all workouts better

FNG was named Resume because he crushed his bio better than maybe anyone ever. Welcome!

Roomba showed up at 0430 to walk the track in a weighted vest. He says he’s trying to build up some endurance to post five days a week. WHAT A BEAST

Calculating the total burpees for the burpee challenge was near impossible so I tried to encourage Geek Squad to just round up to 4,000
