AMRAPalooza VI: The Undiscovered Burpee
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
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).
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.
Hand Release Merkins
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

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.
Happy birthday, Sleep Number!
