Gather keys and phones and mosey out of start point over to amphitheater. Assemble at the stage for 11s’s big brother, 25’s. Same concept as 11s except increase/decrease by 5 reps. Start at the stage and do 20 feet elevated crunches (legs straight out and 6″ off the ground, hands on head and crunch), run up the stairs to the top and do 5 pull ups/inverted rows on rails. Return to the bottom for 15 crunches/10 rows, etc. working up and down in count.
Mosey to pedestrian bridge south of amphitheater for Welsh Dragons (thanks Filter). Take 4 bear crawl steps, do 1 merkin, 1 two-count shoulder tap. Take 4 bear crawl steps, do 2 merkins, 2 two-count shoulder taps. Increase reps every 4 steps, I think we got to 7 or 8 reps of each depending on how big your bear feet are.
Return to start line for Galway Hookers. Same scenario as before but exercises are different. Take 4 lunge steps, do 1 super-squat (deep squat, then calf raise after coming up). Take 4 lunge steps, do 2 super-squats. Increase reps every 4 steps. Exercise extended further because people decided to take giant lunge steps. Again we made it to about 8 reps.

Short mosey to round pull off near convention center. Everyone spreads out and finds a column barrier to start out with.
– First round: Pistol squats on left leg x10, bear crawl to center, pistol squats on right leg x10, then bear crawl back to outside and hold
– Second round: Incline merkins x10, bear crawl to center, decline merkins x10, bear crawl back to outside and hold
– Third round: Lunge to center, dips x20, lunge back to outside and hold
Short mosey over to the base of the Big Ball for Swanson pyramid. Each round you multiply the exercise times the round you’re on (never math in public..). Exercises done at Big Ball, middle landing of stairs, and top of stairs.
- Pulls ups x1 on Big Ball
- Big boy sit ups x3 on middle landing of stairs
- Merkins x5 at top of stairs
So round one you do 1 pull up, 3 sit ups, 5 merkins and run back down. Round two you do 2 pull ups, 6 sit ups, 10 merkins. Etc. etc. up to round 5.
Mosey back to start point.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Gesundheit spoke about getting out and being consistent with F3 and his physical job, and how they have helped with his overall energy level and his outlook. I seconded that. I’ve had issues getting up especially on Mondays. I got up Monday and didn’t on Tuesday this week. That extra hour or two of sleep seems like a great idea until you miss a workout. I almost always regret sleeping in, and I never regret actually coming to F3. AYE!!
Hardship Hill OCR this weekend, still time to register or volunteer.
