Vicious Escalations

AO: The Rubicon

When: 06/08/2021

QIC: FannyPack

PAX (13): Special K, Olan Mills, Tio, Locksmith, Cartpath, Trebek, Dakked, Lefty, Pinky, Sassymom, False Start, Stiff Arm, FannyPack


It was a dark and stormy morning… actually just very humid.  We got a nice mist (a la ‘the Coca-Cola Cool Zone’ from Six Flags) towards the end.  This was a last minute recycle of YHC’s VQ.


After arriving RIGHT on time, we mosey’ed to the flag for a warm up.

15 SSH

15 Imperial Walkers

10 Weed pickers (with some coaching on form)

Arm Circles & COVID’s

Mosey to FOD

The Thang:

Part one: 4 (5?) Corners Escalator around the field.  Starting at home:

10 LBFC’s

20 Sumo Squats

30 Merkins

40 Bonnie Blairs (modified to lunges as needed)

50 American Hammers (back at home)

Then de-escalate back around the field.  The last four PAX at each corner station end early & advance to keep the group tight, AKA ‘final 4 catch up’.

Part Deux: Vicious Circle, 2x around the pitcher’s mound.

VC#1 was a bear crawl counter-clockwise around the mound, with the last man doing 10 burpees on the mound then going to the front of the line.  Continue until all PAX have a turn.  Consensus was Polar Bears would win in a fight against Grizzlies.

VC#2 was a crab walk clockwise, with 15 alpha-count Freddy Mercuries on the mound.

This combo goes right to the end of time.  Solid showing by all & its always great when we can stay tight as a group.




Cartpath’s friend who was med-evac’ed from Mexico is doing well in a Miami hospital.  Prayers for PAX who expressed the past 2 months have been rough emotionally/mentally, and he noted the positive impact F3 has had- a sentiment shared by all & encouragement to continue the F3 train.  Announcement on Tuesday starbucks coffeeteria.  Reminder to use Slack & stay connected between workouts.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Great crew this morning, and great to connect with new/returning PAX.

PSA: with the recent additions through divisions, we need to watch the Q Sheet & keep it full. Q’ing a beatdown is always an opportunity to grow personally- grab’em before they are gone!
