The Pre-Thang: 3 Man Weave (10 Minutes)

Folsom had the PAX get into lines of 3. The men were instructed to get a basketball between the 3 of them and to pass and weave down the court on the right side and back on the left. The PAX that didn’t get the ball had to perform Cherry Pickers until a ball was returned via the 3 man weavers. Once a group returned they began Cherry Pickers until it was there turn to go again.

The Thang: 3 Man Hill Grinder (25 Minutes)

Folsom lead the PAX on another Do Wa Diddy run across the street to the big hill just to the east of the shovelflags and had them again get in groups of 3 men. 2 men started at the bottom of the hill; 1 man ran to the top of the hill. Once everyone was in place the exercises could begin. 1 of the 2 men at the bottom ran to the top to relieve the 3rd man, who then ran down the hill to relieve the man down there. The PAX performed the following exercises AMRAP until relieved:

Bottom: Flutter Kicks, Hobo Dumpers, Hand Release Merkins.

Top: Heels to Heaven, Sumo Squats, Sun Gods Backwards.

COT: I know that we are heading into a stressful time of year. This pandemic isn’t going to make that any easier, but I urge you men, to take time to yourself. Posting at F3, for example, is a great way to do something for yourself that will make you a better you for your family. When you are with your family, try to focus on the good that is there. For instance, extended breaks from school allows us more time to spend with our children. Which is a good thing, most of the time. 😉 Aye- Folsom
