Nice Teeth (For a Hispanic Englishman)

Posted on behalf of Body Bag:

Boy did I need this.  If the F3 Lexicon is ever updated, you will likely see the definition of Fart-sack as “the place you’ll find BodyBag”.  Today was my first post in 18 months, and I almost forgot the power of F3……Almost. It was less than 30 seconds into the warm-up mosey that I was reminded why I love starting the week off right in the gloom with the PAX – all of a sudden the chuckles were coming from the naughty kids at the back of the group, and as I listened closer to hear what the fuss was about I caught the faint defensive argument from McGee along the lines of “no, it’s not d1ck p0rn”.  It was all I needed to hear to know I was back where I needed to be.  All about the 2ndF.

I am forever grateful to Squid for simply reaching out and being persistent about EH’ing me into a Q session.  I loved being out there.  I won’t lie though….it has been so long that I was in 2 minds about whether or not I was going to be doing things correctly.  My saving grace was the confidence that my father-figure Alf would no doubt be there and that I could lean on him to nudge me quietly if assistance was needed.  Cadence went out the window, the disclaimer was messy at best (I blame the naughty kids chit-chatting over the top of the voice of authority), the exercises were not the ‘normal’ ones, and an early end time caused some debate, but we got through it. Seriously, thank you Squid!

The Thang

  • Mosey round parking lot – warm up complete…in the words of Swiper “We’ve got a lot to do”


  • 10 random-order exercises in quick succession:

– Partner Carry (50yds) – forward facing optional

– Partner Merkins (shoot for 20)

– Partner Dips (shoot for 20) – slipped digits optional

– Lo-slo Merkins (shoot for 10)

– Hand Release Merkins (shoot for 10)

– Knees 2 Chest (shoot for 20) – bruised balls mandatory

– Hops (50yds)

– Plank (shoot for 30s)

– Russian Twist (shoot for 25)

– PAX choice – pax member is nominated and it’s their choice of exercise

– End the round with a 100yd 90% AYG

(Prohibition’s face of delight when I announced that ‘Scrum-Down’ would not be one of exercises was priceless…..I too learned a lesson the hard way from that one).


  • Remove one exercise, rinse and repeat. Removing 2 some rounds, in the interest of time (ended up 10, 9, 7, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1) – always finishing with the 90% AYG
    • this is the lucky dip 2ndF portion of the workout. And there were a few heroes out there, with Partner Dips and Hops going out in an early round

Bit of Mary action…..DONE!

Huge credit to the Gents this morning – it was hot, it was on the hard concrete, it was fast-paced, and it all had to be done with the thought of the naughty kids watching mano-a-mano X-rated cinematography trapped in our minds for the entire 45mins.

So, on a base building jog around the neighborhood, I had an elderly lady literally stop me to tell me that my shirt was so bright and visible that I should wear it every time I run. You too can be visible on your runs with an order of:

Neon reflective Area 51 shirts –

Black shirts are also available (very cool but not as visible):

Orders available through May 24 only!
