YHC was both honored an a bit nervous to fly out to the great city of Bentonville, AR and Q the 2nd F3NWA beatdown. Would anyone show? Would the beatdown be fun? Would it be hard enough? Would it be too hard? Yazoo chauffeured me to the AO early and we waited… Then right on queue to PAX started to roll in and we were off. Let’s Mosey!
We Moseyed to a nice flat area and circled up.
After a quick disclaimer we started to Warm-O-Rama
Michael Phelps (OYO)
Thinking we should start of slow to ease into it.. never mind
Partner up for B.O.M.B.S.
While one partner runs to the far goalpost and back the other partner does exercises and then switch (keeping partner count)
100 Overhead Claps
200 Big Boy Sit-ups (BBS)
Somewhere between the Merkins and the BBS the PAX looked like they could use a quick breather. So how do we rest in F3? Remember your count and let’s do some Batwings (Sun Gods forward, backward, Seal Claps, Overhead Claps) in cadence (IC). Now let’s finish those BOMBS. As teams started to finish then go to the other teams and split the count they have left. We always pick up the 6 in F3.
These guys are doing great. NWA is bringing it!
Now let’s check how heavy AR air is compared to GA.
1 to 4 ratio of Merkins to Air Presses. Start with 1 Merkin then 4 Air Presses. Rinse and repeat all the way up to 10 Merkins and 40 Air Presses. By the look of the PAX and in how YHC’s shoulders were feeling that air was pretty heavy at the end. The PAX muscled through and finished.
Now our shoulders needed a bit of a rest let’s go back to legs. Lt Dan’s with the same 1 to 4 ratio of Squats to Lunges. We again are going to to these together. We made it all the way up to 9 Squats and 36 Lunges. Good work men.
Let’s mosey over to those bike jumps. We have to do something there, but what? I know let’s bear crawl up and down those 2×2. Sounded easy enough but bear crawling down those hills put a lot of pressure back on those shoulders.
Still time for an Indian run, which the PAX informed me they call them Ranger Runs in the military. So let’s Ranger Run! Some of the PAX needed a bit of a refresher on what an Indian…er Ranger Run was, but we wound our way back to the Flag.
BTW.. Yazoo your lights are still on. I am sure that will be fine after the beatdown. What could go wrong?
Still time for Marys. But what Mary’s should NWA really learn?…
LBC’s – of course
Crab Cakes – Cause Cricket(F3Cherokee) likes these and he is a beast.
American Hammers – Cause Rocky beat the Russian
T-Bombs – Cause YHC thinks these are cool
Bobby Hurleys – Cause… well.. cause Manning (F3Cherokee) and there was still some time to churn through.
Circle of Trust
First.. these guys did well in the naming. Unlike Homeboy using F3Cherokee names in the first beatdown, the NWA PAX chose their own this time. YHC may have thrown out one but mostly YHC just asked questions until a PAX yelled out a name.
Spoke about the Glue in the F3. The 2nd F of fellowship. How our culture does not typically have good male to male relationships. How we are missing the the Jonathon and David type friendships. When men buy into F3 those relationships come easy. Easy to be real after beating the crap out of each other in the gloom.
Naked Man Moleskin
Again, I was honored to workout with the men of NWA.
Yazoo and Joe Dirt thank you for the hospitality.
Back to those lights on Yazoo’s truck… Does anyone have any jumper cables?!?! Nope? Where do we go to get some. Duh, where do you think we go in Bentonville?!?!….
