The 2,000 Yard Burpee Abpocalypse
PAX pair up in groups of three into two groups
Group 1 goes to East goal line, group 2 to West
PAX begin with 10 burpees on the 10 yard line and go down 1 every 10 yards going back to the goal line after each set of burpees. Finish with 1 burpee on opposite goal line.
After burpees completed, PAX begin on 10 yard line with 10 American Hammers, going back to the goal line after each set and increasing reps by 2 every 10 yards. Finish with 28 American Hammers on opposite goal line.

PAX circle up around shovel flag and get on their six. Two PAX on opposite sides of the circle get up and run around the circle while other PAX AMRAP exercises called out by the QIC. When PAX return to their starting position, next PAX get up and run.

It will come as a shock to no man who has posted with F3 that we borrow a lot of what we do from the military. From exercises to lexicon to counting cadence to completing after action reports (backblasts), it’s obvious that there are military fingerprints all over our organization. It’s also evident in the way we teach leadership and train Effective and Virtuous leaders.
The penultimate event of Marine Corps Recruit Training is called the Crucible. During the Crucible, recruits participate in different obstacles and challenges that require teamwork and leaders to emerge and help foster esprit de corps. During this time of very little sleep and even less food, drill instructors will have periods of instruction with the recruits in which they will read Medal of Honor citations. Medal of Honor recipients invariably demonstrate character traits that can be found in every Effective and Virtuous leader: courage, integrity, commitment and selflessness. True examples of men who Live Third.
The QIC read the PAX the Medal of Honor citation for Army Technical Sergeant Charles Coolidge. Signal Mountain resident Sgt Coolidge is one of only two living Medal of Honor recipients from World War II. Sgt. Coolidge’s actions during late October 1944 demonstrated those leadership traits that we hope to develop in ourselves.

“Somebody tell Red Raider he is supposed to go back to the goal line after each set of burpees.”
“He is going back. And he is still 3 sets ahead of us.”
Burrito thought it would be funny to trip Blindside as he was running around the circle. It was funny, but not nearly as funny as the perfect form tackle Blindside performed when he caught up to Burrito.
