PAX: Goldstar, Cobra, Frank the Tank, Skywalker, Spicoli, Ditka, Zulu, Pavarotti, Jiffy


  • SSH IC x20
  • Windmills IC x20
  • Calf Raises IC x20
  • Sandbag Trade-Off Mosey to hill with one PAX carrying 60 lb sandbag. (Reach the end? Go back and Take the sandbag from whoever has it)

The Thang

Part 1: Pyramid of Merkins

Simple up-the-hill-down-the-hill with a little added fun. PAX line up at bottom of hill. Pax at the end of the line starts with the sandbag. Start with 1 merkin, then run up the hill. At the top, do 2 merkins, then run down. Keep going until you hit 10 merkins, then work back down to 1. Pax with the sandbag has to take it with them up and down the hill, then gives it to the next Pax. Exercise is complete once all PAX have completed reps AND carried the sandbag up and down the hill at least once.

Part 2: Christmas in July Secret Santa Sandbag Burpee Bonanza

Line up at bottom of hill. Give sandbag to random Pax.

Simple enough. Burpee at the bottom. Burpee at the top. If you have the sandbag, it goes with you. When you come down the hill you get to play Santa and give the sandbag to anyone you choose. If you don’t have the sandbag and the PAX who does is still doing their burpee, you can steal it (this can be prevented by doing the burpee WITH the sandbag).

Do this non-stop for at least 5 minutes.

Sandbag Trade-Off Mosey back to Flag

And it wouldn’t be a Crockett beatdown without…

Bat Wings IC x20


The balance and coordination of most F3 Dayton Pax is roughly equivalent to a drunk guy. Bugs think Pavarotti is tasty. 100 burpees a day keeps the doctor away.

Ruck Maze Part I

Time: 0530
Q: Swobbles
Pax: Who’s There, Ditka, Cornelius
The thang: Ruck Maze Part I

PAX warmed up with various exercises: 10 merkins IC, 10 squats IC, 10 SSH IC, 10 Flutter Kicks. Then we threw on our rucks.

Ruck Maze started down in the lower level of the parking garage. PAX ran in between columns north to south, while advancing east to west after passing the last column in the row. We did this for time at the beginning and end. Ruck Maze 1: 4:15
Ruck Maze 2: 4:07 (with an extra row)
The rest of the time was a standard ruck with mumble chatter.

Mumble chatter: checked out the steel barriers we’ll be moving tomorrow to help Austin Landing set up for an event. How we could be annoying with hundreds of questions about our upcoming 2nd F event.

Remember music videos? MTV was cool before it got stupid. 103.9 is too “Top 40” these days. X-Fest was a thing and that was awesome. New music videos have nothing on the old ones. Kids these days… Get off my lawn… ow, my hip… we’re old.

Lesson on Getting Right and Living Right. A man must first get right in his own life through his fitness, fellowship, and faith before helping others. It’s a constant process, there is no completion. Living right is living it out before moving on to helping another man.
