The Q:

Riverside Park


boot camp, Perrysburg

Boot camp style workout. On the River. Amazing way to watch the sun come up and start the day with sweat pouring over your rejuvenated soul. Some ramps, lots of steps, a little concrete, a little grass, all the fixens for beautifully scripted beatdown!

You have to park at Hood Park, Downtown Perrysburg, or one of the side streets (i.e. Cherry, Walnut, or Second Street).

    Backblast – November 22, 2018

    AO: The Wall – Riverside Park – Perrysburg, OH
    PAX: Geppetto (QIC), Hazmat, Stark, Bambi, Bourbon, Woodstock, Casper, TuPac, Thai Guy, Landslide
    Workout: Pre-game Warmup

    No FNG’s so right into F3 Mission and Core Principles:
    F3 – Fitness, Fellowship, Faith
    Mission –Plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership.
    The core principles of F3 are that it must:
    • Be free of charge
    • Be open to all men
    • Be held outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold
    • Be led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary. You versus you. Modify or stop an exercise if you need to. The most important thing is that nobody gets hurt.
    • End with a Circle of Trust

    The “Thang”: Early 5:15 start time so that some of the PAX could make it north in time for Turkey Bowl II. Warm up with four count windmills in cadence as a warm up and then YHC explained the beatdown which would consist of:
    (50) Two count Side Straddle Hops
    (40) Butterfly Crunches
    (30) Air Squats
    (20) Merkins
    (10) Squat Jumps
    Run up the stairs and down the ramp. Repeato until time is called.

    Per Spartan website, each round of exercises (not including the running) would burn approximately 100 calories. This would “earn” the PAX the following Thanksgiving foods:
    -3 oz. of turkey
    -1/2 cup of mashed potatoes, gravy or dressing
    -Very small slice of pumpkin pie

    YHC called time a little earlier than normal as to get the Turkey Bowl participants on their way.

    Ended with:
    Count-O-Rama – Ten

    Sharing of the six – Casper. He was EH’d by Dredd and OBT from an F3 podcast which is actually pretty cool! Got his name from a ruck in which he couldn’t keep the pace with the rest of the group and he came around the corner of a cemetery and spooked the rest of the PAX. Started in September 2017 and continues to post for the comradery and the accountability that comes with being part of the group. He knows that if he doesn’t post for a few days that PAX will reach out to him to make sure things are OK. Aye!

    Announcements – From TuPac: Monday evening beatdown will take place at Levis Commons clock tower for the last Monday in November with a possible change in day starting in December. From Stark: F3 Toledo gear sale is ongoing until November 25th. Get your items ordered! Holiday Party December 8th at Le Petite Gourmet in Maumee. Details on Mumble Chatter

    Ball of Man – Prayers of Thanksgiving for family, friends and those military and public servants who are protecting us and defending our freedom who can’t be with their families today. Amen.

    Spreadsheets from the Gloom: Bourbon did a quick side shuffle to avoid “The Six”. Cold morning. Honored to have led on Thanksgiving. We have much to be thankful for.
