15 PAX posted to come see what their true love gave to them for the 12 days of Christmas.  We were also treated to some fantastic holiday tunes.  I had try to offset the sonic atrocity that was committed by Road Trip a few days prior.  With the exception of Run-DMC.  And “Marshmallow World.”  Hmm, I might need to re-evaluate my holiday playlists.

Mission – The mission of F3 is to plant, grow, and serve men’s small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.

Disclaimer – I am not a professional.

While The Boss was informing us that Kris Kringle was en route, we went ahead and got started.  Turns out our true love doesn’t care about the first 11 days of Christmas and jumped right to 12.


12 SSHs

12 Rockette Hillbillies

12 Up-downs (got these out of the way early this time)


Mosey up the hill, down the road a bit, and back down the other hill.  Santa left a big Weinke there with 12 exercises on it.  After each exercise, run back up the hill to the stop sign, run back down, and move on to the next exercise.

Burpees – 12

Monkey Humpers – 12 x cadence count

Bobby Hurleys – 12

Sumo Squats – 12 x cadence count

Mountain Climbers – 12 x cadence count

Lunges – 12 x double count

Plank Jacks – 12 x cadence count

Merkins – 12 x cadence count

American Hammers – 12 x cadence count

LBCs – 12 x cadence count

Freddy Mercurys – 12 x cadence count

Flutters – 12 x cadence count

Mosey back to the flag.  Church Lady was complaining about the fact that he somehow skipped the burpees earlier.  Not to worry, YHC is happy to oblige.  Time for 12s (as opposed to 11s).

12 burpees, run to the lightpost, 0 star jumps, run back to the flag, 9 burpees, run to the lightpost, 3 star jumps, back to the flag, etc.  Reduce 3 at a time until you end with 0 burpees and 12 star jumps.

Only had time for 12 BBSUs to finish up.


I’m posting this after the fact, but hope the few folks who decided to get up early the Friday before the Friday before Christmas (i.e., this morning), had fun at the Dueceable.  Forty degrees and rain sounded like some perfect conditions.

Benign will be leading F3 Dad (bring your 2.0) on 12/29 at 7am at Pitchfork.

“Old Man Workout” by Cheesesteak at Pitchfork tomorrow (12/15)
