On this last day of February 10 paxs were about to embark in a partner workout. Then a car pulled up and Sipe’s worst fear happened: 11 paxs, an odd number, embarked in a partner workout. Although Chappo did offer to leave and hold a table at tequila for when we were done. Being frustrated, Sipe decided to go sleeveless for the first time in 2018. Hedgehog was quite impressed with the guns.
We warmed up with side straddle hops in cadence. However Sipe forgot to count to two and the cadence got all screwed up.
On to the workout. We moved to the grass. All the exercises were for a minute. The first exercise was inclined merkins. One partner got behind the other held up their legs while the other did merkins. The next exercise was the partner that held the legs now did a high plank while the other pax crawled under them. When the pax went through the pax holding the high plank went to a low plank. The pax that crawled through now jumped over the pax in the low plank twice. Then repeat the high plank and crawl through for a minute. The third exercise was leg circles over and under the other pax also doing leg circles. Reverse directions at 30 seconds. Our fourth exercise was the partner holding the legs in the push ups now did one arm rows while holding the other partners ankle. The partner being rowed kept his body tight and acted like he had no waist. He became a lever. Next one pax did a low plank while the other put a leg on the others back very lightly and did Bulgarian squats switching legs at 30 seconds. Next one partner laid on the ground while the other stood over him The pax on the ground lifted his legs and the other pax pushed his legs down either right, left or straight down. Next one pax went in a plank while the other lifted his legs (similar to the inclined merkins) put the partner holding his legs did squats. The paxs threatened violence if pictures of this ever got out. Next we did partner sit ups. Next one pax got on his back and did leg presses with the other pax laying his chest on the others feet. Chapo asked Belding to look into his eyes and Mickey got a little gassy on this exercise. The final exercise one partner was in a plank while the other lifted his legs from behind (similar to inclined merkins again) the pax holding the legs would drop one at a time while the other pax tried to keep them up. We then did them all again with roles reversed. We finished with a few ab exercises (hip dips/knee to elbow and crunches). We prayed for students, those in labor, our dead, those with cancer, and for our troops. It was a really fun workout, really not like a workout at all, it was more like just hanging out with friends having a good time. The men of F3 make F3 special. It was an honor.
The paxs were Brita, Gap, Hedgehog, Mr Belding, El Chappo, Mickey, H2, Stiffler, Bagles, Gadget, and Sipe.
