“It worked in Ferris Bueller – Maybe it’ll work for us”

AO: The Hooch

When: 06/22/2022

QIC: Dinghy

PAX (11): BallBoy, Boomer, Flo, Mater, McCracken, Piggy, PuffDaddy, Scrooge, Tenderfoot, TaterTot (2.0)


“Life Moves Pretty Fast. If You Don’t Stop And Look Around Once In A While, You Could Miss It.” — Ferris Bueller

Thus began YHC’s thought process for a) Signing up to do a birthday Q 2 1/2 weeks prior to his real birthday, and b) Putting together said birthday Q. For those who can remember the movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”, one of the key moments was when the kid determined that they needed to hide the fact that they’d “borrowed” a 1961 Ferrari GT by running the car in reverse to move the odometer back to it’s original position. YHC thought that this was a GREAT idea to mimic, essentially trying to turn back the hands of time by having as many PAX as possible try to influence the spin of the earth so that we could all reverse the aging process (although TaterTot would literally have been just  “tot” if we were successful). So off we went to see if we could prove parts of the Theory of Relativity……..


Pax did the following exercises for 10 x:



Moroccan Night Clubs


Mosey around the parking lot (FORWARD AND NO HAMMY ISSUES – YAY!)

Line up on the main concourse for the beatdown

The Thang:

Part 1:  Pax were instructed to perform sets of descending reps of the following exercises (starting with 10, down by 1 each time, completing at 1); after each set, Bernie Sanders out 30 yards, do a burpee, and Bernie Sanders back, Mary for the 6:

4 count bodybuilders

Monkey Jumpers

Mike Tysons

Note – after the first exercise, it was determined that my plan to reverse time by having everyone do a Bernie Sanders out/back wasn’t working (should have remembered that from Ferris Bueller), so for the next round we simply went Bernie Sanders out / run back, then through out the plan altogether the third round with just an out and back (good news, no Ferraris were wrecked after this realization)…..

Part 2: Colonel Angus’s……mosey to the overhang, find a wall. Pax conduced Tabatas with alternating exercises of Monkey Humpers and BTTW during active phase, air chair during rest.

Part 3: Complete the 53 Burpees for Dinghy’s upcoming birthday (40 earlier, to 13), then 1 set of  Dying Cockroaches to complete Mary (and that was time)!

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Although disappointed that we weren’t able to reverse chronological time, YHC is nevertheless delighted that we were able, in some ways, to reverse the aging process. F3 is truly an opportunity to defy age through the sheer force of many PAX pushing each other to get stronger. YHC is able to do things now that he couldn’t do in his 20’s, and it’s because of the power of accountability and the principle of iron sharpening iron through F3. For that, I am extraordinarily grateful. Thanks for letting me lead this morning, men!
