AMRAPalooza VI: The Undiscovered Burpee

THE SCENE:
30 degrees.  Gloomy.  But thanks to getting home from last night’s VAPE at a very reasonable 11:30pm, I got a full 4.5 hours of sleep. So I had that going for me, which was nice.

F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
Given.

WARM-O-RAMA:

Gave my standard WOR for whenever FNGs or newish guys are in attendace.  I informed the PAX that the Warm-o-rama would consist of 6 exercises, each of which would be a set of 10 burpees.  However, a correct answer to a trivia question for each one would result in changing that burpee set to a more standard warmup exercise.

Question 1:  What is the mission of F3?  Correctly answered by Orange Julius:  “To plant, grow, and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.”  Reward:  SSH x20

Questions 2-6:  Name one of the 5 core principles of F3. All were correctly answered by various members of the group, with all participating.  Rewards:  Daisy Pickers x15, Imperial Walkers x15, Windmills x15, Hillbillies x15, Little Arm Circles x10 (each direction).

THA-THANG:
AMRAPalooza:  As Many Reps As Possible for one minute for each of the following exercises.  In between each exercise, the PAX were given a rest break consisting of a 0.2 mile mosey around the parking lot.

Bodybuilders
BBS
Burpees
Squats
Merkins
Flutter Kicks
Werkins
WWI Situps
Hand Release Merkins
Freddy Mercurys

There was time for one more lap, but I gave the PAX the opportunity to skip it if they could give the F3 Credo.  Orange Julius answered correctly: “Leave no man behind; but leave no man where you find him.”

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
7:  Choker (QIC), Commie, Megadoodoo, Orange Julius, Sleep Number, The Streak, Wall Builder

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Deep, meaningful COTs are nice, but not required.  Short and sweet is fine, too.  You don’t have to write a sermon.  Don’t let the lack of a great COT idea prevent you from signing up to Q.

MOLESKIN:
Happy birthday, Sleep Number!

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
