After the disclaimer we started our warm up however YHC had a story to tell. On the surface it might seem that this was just a stupid and perhaps inappropriate story, but no! You had to stick around for the COT to hear the meaning behind the story. I won’t bore you with the details but the it revolves around Stanley the sperm and his quest to fulfill his mission. Intrigued are you?
At the sidewalk there were 9 set of exercises to be completed with the Cindy’s. Each exercise consisted of 20 reps.
Over head presses
Block Windshield Wipers
Alternating Block Merkins
After the 20 reps, the Pax ran to the cones to pick a stick out of the Bucket. Complete 21 reps of whatever exercise you pick, then run back to the blocks to complete the next exercise. The exercises were: SSH, Merkins, Werkins, HR Merkins, Burpees, Tire Flips, Atlas ball toss, Bear crawls, Iron Mikes, Flutterkicks, Bobby Hurleys, V ups and other various things of that nature.
Once we concluded the 9 sets, YHC asked Pyro on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being “let’s never do that again” to 10 being, “yes let’s do it again”, He said “12” . So we did. Until YHC called an audible….:
This is the part of the show YHC likes to call “Let’s make up the rest!” So Pyro, Pud, Bernie and Boucher we assigned a bench. Whatever exercise they wanted to call, everyone else would be obliged to complete when we visited their bench. So we did:
20 groiners at Pyro’s bench
20 derkins at Pud’s bench
20 Merkins at Bernie’s Bench
20 Burpees at Boucher’s bench.
The next phase got a little hazy as YHC asked various Pax, what their least favorite, most favorite exercise of 2020 was. At the end of the day we finished up with several rounds of circle Burpees before closing.

To close the loop on the Stanley story, Stanley knew his life‘s mission and he worked diligently to fulfill that mission however at the last minute something unexpected happened. Due to his training he was able to adapt. 2020 was like that for a lot of us. We had no idea what was coming however we adapted and we overcame. We doubled down on our efforts to become better men through this crazy organization called F3. Bring it on 2021!
