The Four Corners of Socrates…featuring the PAX of SPARTA

The Four Corners of Socrates…featuring the PAX of SPARTA

When you can’t think of something creative, you do something simple. Add reps to it and repeat. That’s what happened at F3 Sparta today.

The Thang:

Our band of six started as a band of five. Just when it seemed we were doomed to an odd number, Spartan Smokey sent his message that we would soon be upon us. As promised, the Spartan appeared ready for battle not knowing what was soon to be before him.

We started with a brisk lap around the school as I pointed out 4 points(corners) around the school that would soon become our stations. After the mosey, it was time for the disclaimer.

With the disclaimer out of the way, we now warm-up:

  • SSH X 20
  • Imperial Walkers X 15
  • Mountain Climbers X 20

Enough of that, let’s get to the meat and potatoes. The are four corners that were designated around the school. The instructions were to take five laps around the school. While taking the laps, the pax would do the follow:

  • Corner 1, 25 Merkins
  • Corner 2, 25 LBC’s
  • Corner 3, 25 Merkins
  • Corner 4, 25 LBC’s

After the completing the five laps with exercises included, the individuals that finish early(cough,cough, Smokey) circle back and pick up the six.

Once we were all back together now time to play on the playground(partner work):

  • Partner One runs to the street to do 10 Bombjacks while partner two does Incline Merkins(2 rounds)
  • Partner One runs to the street to do 10 Heels to Heaven while partner two does Dolly’s(2 rounds)
  • Partner one runs to the street to do 5 Burpees while partner two does Flutter Kicks(2 rounds)
  • The Pax ran as a group to the street and did 10 Heels to Heaven.


  • Squat down as low as possible while putting your knees out as far as possible, hold
  • While standing and spreading legs apart, bend at the hip to touch the ground. Exhale to reach deeper. Now, walk your hands over to your right foot and hold. Walk your hands back to center. Now walk your hands over to your left foot and hold. Back to center, now stand.
  • Pigeon stretch


Not much to report but most importantly Madison has gotten a job offer and possibly another on the way. Great news to hear and glad he is getting some lead way so quickly. Prayer works!

It was an honor to lead and a greater honor for you all to trust me to follow me.

Shake N Bake, out!
