The Thang

Started with a little something to celebrate the PAX. The main reason I have made it a year of consistent posts within F3 Chattanooga is all of the PAX, especially those at Hackliament. So, we started with a little PAX choice circle. PAX chose their favorite (or most hated in some instances) exercises and we did 25 reps. There were 9 men so after each choice, we did Burpee apocalypse.

PAX Choice

  • Tatonka: 25 John McCains w/ block – 9 Burpees
  • Abercrombie: 25 Curls for the girls – 8 Burpees
  • Woodrider: 25 Bonnie Blairs – 7 Burpees
  • Xena: 25 Merkins – 6 Burpees
  • Mrs. Garcia: 25 LBCS – 5 Burpees
  • Toe Jelly: 25 Grave Diggers – 4 Burpees
  • Choo Choo: 25 Goblet Squats – 3 Burpees
  • Sousa: 25 Bench Press – 2 Burpees
  • Blackout: 25 Shoulder Presses – 1 Burpee

One Indian Run lap around track to bleachers

Elevens at Bleachers

  • Started at bottom of bleachers, performed step-ups OR box jumps, ran up bleachers and performed dips at top, moseyed back down. 10 Step-ups/box jumps and 1 dip; 9 Step-ups/box jumps and 2 dips;…….1 step-up/box jump and 9 dips. Always totaled 11.

Moseyed back to blocks on track pad and performed Interval Workout (45 seconds exercise/15 seconds rest):

Stretched for last 1:30; Forward Fold OYO and Iraqi Tea Time OYO to close it out


Went around the circle and had each PAX state something about F3 they are grateful for. Had many good responses, all with mainly the same theme: Brotherhood, Friendship, Accountability, Inclusion, etc.

Q spoke to PAX about what F3 has meant in his life the past year. The fact is that F3 is a great Organization, but only because of the PAX and their friendship and support towards one another. The friendships built here are built off of a solid, lasting foundation and it keeps men like me from being a sad clown trudging through life. So, thank you to each one of you as you have impacted me far more than you know!


The MC started before the disclaimer. Abercrombie had a (Coca-Cola) gaiter on his head to keep sweat out of his eyes. Of course, this turned into a Woodrider mask vs. gaiter discussion. He loves masks…..

Tatonka was wearing an Orange Mud shirt. Sousa proceeded to say he thought it was “Orange Nut”. As a Vol fan, I had some thoughts not suitable for F3 as to how cool “Orange Nut” would be. I mean, come on, we do say we bleed orange….. Only slight differences there, right?

The PAX choice circle was SUPPOSED to be good for the PAX as they could pick the exercises, however, it turned out most picked exercises they hated. There were a few this was stupid’s in there. To be fair, the burpees were far from the PAX’s choice during this part of the beatdown….

Woodrider broke his block…. Unsure if it was the crushing pressure from his biceps during curls or the ground that actually broke it….Also, Sousa was across from him so it could have been mind power….Sousa is good at breaking blocks that aren’t his.

Woodrider admitted to have eaten three hot dogs last night because “it was a buffet” This may or may not have had anything to do with broken block. Also, you can get hot dogs at the Lookouts convergence if you come early. Sorry Hacksaw, Toe Jelly noted that when it’s a hot dog buffet….you can always have “just one more”. Please don’t sue for trademark infringement.
