Introduction: Welcome to F3, spoke of the mission statement and five core principles; spoke about today being the day after the Fourth of July, when responsibility for declaring freedom fell upon the shoulders of all Americans.
Moseyed around back for a brief Warmarama – 15 SSH IC; 15 Tappy Taps IC; 15 Imperial Walkers IC.
Pre-Thang – did Overhead Claps to the song “Volunteers” by Jefferson Airplane, switching to Seal Claps for the chorus. It’s a short 2:04 song, but the PAX still felt the burn in their shoulders.
Thang – moseyed up front to the field, where we broke into four groups – three stations with two cones each and one push group. The three stations were named and listed the following exercises, to be completed AMRAP until being pushed:
Civil War & Slavery:
-Charge the Hill
-Wheelbarrows between cones (approximately 10 yards apart)
-Side Straddle Hops
World Wars & Fascism:
-Moroccan Night Clubs
-Army Crawls between cones (approximately 10 yards apart)
Korea/Vietnam & Civil Rights:
-Chuck Norris Merkins
6 Minutes of Mary: 15 Flutterkicks, 15 Box Cutters, 15 LBCs, 15 Heel Touches, and finished with 18 American Hammers rancid style.
Announcements were made and a prayer was offered.
COT: After the Founding Fathers declared Independence from England, they took on the responsibility of governing, and in the Constitution wrote of forming a “more perfect union” – which focused on continuing to improve this nation they founded. We continue that tradition today, both national improvement as well as personal. Each time we gain more independence in life – walking down the street alone, or getting a first job, or living on our own for the first time – we also gain additional responsibility, such as staying safe, paying bills, or eating healthy. Remember the responsibility you have to yourself, your family, and your community.
