    On a beautiful spring morning in March, the PAX showed up for a Ticket to the Final Four…March Madness F3 style. There were no FNGs this morning, but YHC went over the mission of F3 and the 5 core principles anyway, with a brief disclaimer that he was definitely not a professional and advising all to modify as necessary. The beatdown was dedicated to honoring the teams that made it to the Elite Eight in the 2018 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. YHC provided some trivia about this year’s Elite Eight. Including this year’s tournament, the 79th overall, this year’s Elite Eight consisting of Villanova, Duke, Michigan, Kansas, Texas Tech, Florida State, Loyola-Chicago, and Kansas State will have played in a combined 92 Elite Eights, 52 Final Fours, 34 Finals, and produced 13 Championships for a total of 191. YHC informed the PAX that, while 191 will not be something to worry about, we would be using the 92, 52, and 34 in our beatdown. If there was time, the 13 would also be incorporated. The PAX counted off by 8 and told to remember their number as they would be teamed up. Team 1 was Villanova, 2 was Duke, 3 was Michigan, 4 was Kansas, 5 was Texas Tech, 6 was Florida State, 7 was Loyola-Chicago, and 8 was Kansas State.

    The Thang:

    With the administrative part of the workout out of the way, the PAX moseyed around the tree near the school parking lot entrance and down to the base of Faith Hill, where the PAX found cones lighting the field. YHC arranged the teams at one end of the field, and the competition was explained. The competition for each round worked as follows:
    – 1 PAX started as the “Runner”
    – 1 PAX started doing Exercise
    – Teams of 3 had one PAX “Rest”
    – “Runner” PAX and Exercise PAX alternated spots
    – 3 PAX team rotated between “Run”, Exercise, and “Rest”
    – Repeated the “Runs” until the team completed the specified number of reps for each exercise
    – All PAX “Rested” while waiting for last team, doing what the 3 PAX teams did during their “Rests”

    The teams that squared off in the first round were the same that competed in the NCAA Tournament: Loyola-Chicago vs Kansas State, Florida State vs Michigan, Villanova vs Texas Tech, and Kansas vs Duke. The winners moved on to play the other winner in their bracket for the Final Four and the winners of the Final Four were to face off in the finals. All teams would do the workout for each round.

    In the 1st Round, the “runner” did a 40 yard sprint to the cones at the other end of the field and sprinted back to the start. The two teams that were lucky enough to have 3 PAX had to Al Gore during their “Rest”. The teams completed 92 reps of each of these exercises:

    – Boxcutters
    – Big Boy Sit-ups
    – American Hammers (2 is 1)
    – Lunges (2 is 1)
    – LBCs

    Advancing to the Final Four were Loyola-Chicago, Kansas, Villanova and Florida State, nearly matching the results of this year’s Elite Eight.

    The 2nd round featured matchups between Kansas & Villanova and Loyola-Chicago & Florida State. The other 4 teams did the same workout as the Final Four teams. The 2nd round “runners” did Burpee Dans for 20 yards and ran back to the start. Teams with 3 PAX had to flutter kick during their “Rest”. The teams completed 52 reps of each of the following exercises:

    – Flounder Pounders
    – Imperial Walkers (2 is 1)
    – Nolan Ryans (5 at a time for each side)
    – Alternating Shoulder Taps (2 is 1)
    – LBFCs
    – Seal Jacks (2 is 1)

    In the Finals, it was Kansas against who, Florida State? Loyola-Chicago? Nope…Texas Tech. YHC does not how Brita and Worm ended up facing off against Mickey and Mayor, but it was a battle for the ages. The remaining PAX were shocked and stunned while they competed. YHC did not hear any protests from the winner of Florida State and Loyola-Chicago matchup. But, there wasn’t time. The Final round was about to begin. The Final Round “runners” Bear Crawled for 20 yards and ran back to the start. Teams with 3 PAX had to plank during their “Rest”. The teams completed 34 reps of each of the following exercises:

    – Coolers (5 at a time for each side)
    – Hillbillies (2 is 1)
    – Alabama Ass-Kickers (5 at a time for each side)
    – Merkins
    – Plank Jacks (2 is 1)

    Unfortunately, we ran out of time and could not get in the “Cutting of the Net” ceremony. YHC had planned for all PAX to perform thirteen 8 count Body Builders to celebrate the achievement of the winning team, in honor of the 12 championships already won by this year’s Elite Eight, plus 1 for this year’s eventual champion.

    The PAX collected the equipment and moseyed up to the top of Faith Hill, where we met up with Honeymoon and Gap who had returned from their morning run. The PAX circled up for the COT. After a quick count-a-rama and name-o-rama, Trinity shared a shortened version of his know the 6 story, as it was the 3rd day in 4 days that he was the 6. Main thing he wanted us to know is that these beatdowns are the favorite part of his day and help him get his day started right. The PAX collapsed into a BOM around Honeymoon, who led us in a strong prayer, with prayer requests for those travelling for spring break, first responders and their those 8 families dealing with recent losses, including one responder who was in critical condition, Ollie’s sister in law, the troops, those in Sacramento, and remembering the reason for Easter.

    It was an honor and a privilege to lead such a great group of men. Aye!
