A.O. Golden Strip

7 PAX arrived at Golden Strip only to discover that 3 rucktards and a stiff wind had beaten them there.  None were deterred.


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

Disclaimer: If any thought that they had accidentally driven to Iron Tribe, they soon realized their folly.

Mosey 1 lap around the parking lot and stop at the south end of the drop-off lane for a de-escalator:

11s (Bobby Hurleys and 4-count flutters) using the south end and middle of the drop-off lane as exercise locations.

“Recover” to the plank position and do various plank positions.  Finish with the crowd-pleasing low plank hold for 20 seconds.

Wall sit while each PAX takes turns doing 5 diamond merkins.  Repeat-o.  While wall-sitting, the PAX discussed how much they are enjoying watching the Winter Olympics and that Adam Rippon seems like a sweet guy.  Additionally, Look Out Below confessed that he is relieved that he and his sister are not a pairs ice-skating team.  It was also agreed that any sport that involves a maneuver called a twizzle is not a sport at all.

Mosey to the benches in front of the school for 20 dips and 10 derkins OYO.  Repeat-o.

Return to the circle for Mary.
