It’s Going To Suck

  • When: 10/05/19
  • QIC: Goose
  • The Pax: Black Dog, Cuddy, Double Dipper, Gander, Plan B, Goose (QIC)


6 MEN showed up unafraid and ready to better themselves no matter what.  Mosey to the track.  The Murph Challenge was explained.

Run 1 Mile.  100 Pull-ups.  200 Merkins.  300 Squats.  Run 1 mile.

We set out to do the most and best we could do.  We ran the mile (under 9 minutes).  Broke up the Murph into sets of ten (10 Pull-ups, 20 Merkins, 30 Squats).  Called an audible after 5 sets.  Ran the next mile (slightly slower pace).  Got 2 more sets in.  Ended up with 70 Pull-ups, 140 Merkins, 210 Squats.

Others chipped in with Mary.  Announcements (Bitcoin needs a Ruck partner).  Lord’s Prayer!

Amen

We Moseyed the long way to the left side of the school where we did 20 dips and 20 Irkins, IC, before arriving at the track. We ran two laps with 20 Merkins before each attempting to keep our distance from two members of the fairer sex who had previously arrived. We then made our way to the end zone where we split into teams and did Dora 1-2-3 with 100 Merkins, 200 LBCs, & 300 Squats with a 100 yard run (50 down and 50 back) before switching. We then made our way back to the track where we completed our Merkin Mile before gathering our cones and making our way to the covered area on the other side of the school. There we did 75 Calf Raises OYO, 20 Dips, 20 Irkins, 50 LBCs, & 20 Toddler Squats. We then Lunged to the back where we did a Raccoon Crawl on the back seats before returning to our boxes for 20 Dips, 20 Derkins, 50 LBC, & 20 Squats. We then Moseyed to the front of the school by way of the parking lot and road.

A repeat of the Iron Pax Challenge that I said after Thursday I’d never do again.  Never say never, or never say what you won’t do.  All exercises done with cinder block.

  • 10 Man Makers
  • 20 Overhead presses
  • 30 Kettle Bell Swings
  • 40 Goblin Squats
  • 50 Block Irkins

All of this followed by 4 laps around track.  Repeat exercises, 3 laps.  Repeat exercises, 2 laps.  Repeat exercises, 1 lap.

No time or energy for it, so we carried blocks to the road for pick up.

Excellent work this morning.  All PAX completed the challenge in less than 53 minutes.

Announcements – Mr. Roboto: This weekend marks 3 years of F3 in New Bern.  Because of F3, we’re out here doing some strange things that at times really suck, but they would suck more if done alone.  And, it makes us better.

Well said, and thanks for providing the blocks yet again.

Like having children, it’s hard to imagine what YHC did before joining this great group of men for beatdowns multiple times a week.

YHC closed in prayer, very thankful for F3.

Don’t be a LTO.  McRib out!

9 men and 1 2.0 posted this humid but cooler morning. With no FNG’s, and taking into account Dorian’s Puddles and the 150 Killer B Burpees involved in this weeks’ iron pax challenge, we jumped right in with…

We Moseyed to the covered area on the side of the school, taking the long way to avoid the grass/mud, where we did 50 calf raises before finding a box for Dips x 20 IC, 20 Box Jumps, OYO, Irkins x 20 IC, Derkins x 20 IC, Step Ups x 20 OYO. We then split into two groups for a raccoon crawl on each of the back sitting areas with a lung walk in between. We then headed to the track avoiding the grass/mud where possible. There we split into a fast team and a slow team for some running. The teams started in opposite directions and before each lap we did an exercise. We completed 2 laps, 20 Merkins, and 20 Squats.

Forming 2 heats we did some sprints.
50 yards down and back – 20 Lunges IC
50 yards down and back – 20 Merkins IC
50 yards down and back – 40 LBC IC
50 yards down and back –
We then completed 2 more laps with 20 Werkins IC and 20 Toddler Squats. (YHC appreciated the prompt before missing out on the final lap.) We then gathered the cones and Moseyed back to the covered area where we repeated the exercises we had done earlier. We then Moseyed back to the front the same way we came avoiding the grass/mud.

Moseyed to side of the school taking the long path to avoid the wet practice field. There we found the benches where we did 20 dips and 20 Irkins IC. We then moseyed to the track carefully navigating the ravine. There we did a half Merkin Mile followed by 4 50-yard sprint races. After each race we did an exercise (Squats, Dips, Lunges, & LBCs). We then did the 2nd half of the Merkin Mile before rinsing and repeating the sprints & exercises. We retrieved our cones and headed for the covered area on the other side of the school. On the way there YHC took an unfortunate track across a muddy wet field which gave rise to complaints from his Co-Q. At the covered area we started with 75 calf raises OYO, followed with a raccoon crawl and some box work which included Step Ups, Dips, Irkins, & Derkins. We then did another 75 Calf Raises before heading to the parking lot.

Glad to have Rusty back for the week and Oz is on deck for the Fartlek and Bitcoin has Bushwood.
