14 pax put on a show in Monterey as KSBW Action News filmed the action. No cheating on form, we have it all documented!! Here’s how it went down:

Warmup:

  • 10 Burpees
  • 9 SSHs
  • 8 LBCs
  • 7 IWs
  • 6 Merkins
  • 5 Sun gods
  • 4 Flutter kicks
  • 3 Copperhead squats
  • 2 Lunges
  • and…
  • 10 Burpees
  • From OBTs playbook, sometimes you’re ready to do one thing, literally 1 thing, and life throws you 10 Burpees instead. Be ready.

The Thang:

Indian Run – 2 laps

Mosey to amphitheater steps

  • 1st step: AMRAP Calf raises
  • 2nd step: AMRAP Dips
  • 3rd step: AMRAP Derkins

repeat up to the top and back to the bottom. Each pax took a turn doing 5 burpees to time when we switched steps.

Mosey to pick up coupons, place them at goal line. Mosey to other side of the field. From the other goal line we got back to our coupons repeating the following:

  • Sprint forward 40 yards
  • Sprint backwards 30 yards
  • Bear crawl forward 20 yards
  • Crawl bear back 10 yards
  • repeat

Back at the goal line we paired up for coupon Dora’s. YHC was a little to ambitious calling for 100 manmakers, 200 kettle bell swings, 300 presses.

Had to audible to 50 manmakers and ended the swings early. Ran out of time….

Words of Wisdom:

YHC referenced an article from the Boston Globe from a few years ago. The biggest threat facing middle-age men isn’t smoking or obesity. It’s loneliness. Loneliness has been linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke and Alzheimer’s. A 35 year study at BYU found a 26 to 32% increase in premature death for those lonely or living in isolation. Experts say the best way to combat loneliness and to forge and maintain friendship is through regularity, something always on the schedule.

Here is your regular schedule: 1545 weekly workouts across F3 nation. At that moment, 287 Saturday workouts were taking place. We were 14 of thousands of other men across F3 Nation out in the gloom, getting better.
