F3 FIGHT CLUB 7.22.17 – Back-Blast

AO: The Theater
WHO: A determined/wet PAX of 14 HIMs
WHEN: 7.22.17 from 0700-0800

QIC: Mariah

The PAX remained in their cars until 0700 entertained by a wind whipped flag, rain and lightening. Concern for lightening claimed at least one as we see tail-lights leaving the AO just before 0700. At 0700 YHC gets out of his car faced with uncertain expressions and starts to mosey to the under-pass where we conducted an echoing COP.

COP:
SSH, Merkins, Mountain Climbers, Imperial Walkers, Sun Gods, Flutter Kicks, 30 Squats OYO. “We’re gonna get wet, follow me!” Mosey to the bottoms of the park along the woods to circle up under the shelter of a tree.

FIGHT CLUB – Circle up, 2 men in the ring. Today, EVERYONE FIGHTS

#Spotlight and #Slash, get in the middle. Now #Slash, punch #Spotlight in the face. No, not really, that’s not the kind of fighting we’re doing today.

Round 1 – Merkins
Fighters: merkins for 1min (listen for the bell)
Pax: next in line calls an exercise to conduct for 45sec, rise and cheer on fighters for 15sec until bell.
20sec rest – (next 2 enter the ring) – REPEAT
x7

This completes round 1. Line up bottom of the hill. Bear crawl up, mosey back, x2 – Circle up for round 2.

Round 2 – WWIs
Fighters: WWIs for 1min (listen for the bell)
Pax: next in line calls an exercise to conduct for 45sec, rise and cheer on fighters for 15sec until bell.
20sec rest – (next 2 enter the ring) – REPEAT
x7

This completes round 2. See the last big tree on the left? Run there and back twice, run hard. #Kibbles leads by example to demonstrate what hard running is. Circle up for round 3.

Round 3 – Burpees
Fighters: Burpees for 1min (listen for the bell)
Pax: next in line calls an exercise to conduct for 45sec, rise and cheer on fighters for 15sec until bell.
20sec rest – (next 2 enter the ring) – REPEAT
x7 – YHC loses phone function for tabata timer, we finish 5 cycles in cadence (20 count for circle, stand up, 5 count in cadence for the fighters until the bell)

Indian run to the flag
Circle up, not done yet. 10 squats and 10 burpees OYO for Teach.

COT:
We had an FNG from Texas brought by Kornikova, named him #Tigger. We were also visited by a Lexington PAX member. YHC lost phone function and nearly skipped name-o-rama so it was not recorded. We prayed for #Schembechler and #Bumper’s brother, talked about #Schembechler becoming an elder (Congrats!). Closed out with a few words about how you can’t judge every man by what you see. Every man is fighting his own fights. You never know what’s inside someone else, but sometimes they give you a glimpse by showing up and pushing themselves and those around them under less than ideal circumstances. They all persevered by coming out into the wet suck on this stormy day. Proud of these guys. EVERYONE FOUGHT!
