YHC pulled into the parking lot with a few minutes to spare where I found Slim Fast and Sensei back from the Slim Fast 5k looking pretty warmed up. At 0530 the Pax was properly disclaimed, when we see Dora coming in hot. We completed some merkins while Dora jumped out of the minivan and joined us.
We Moseyed over to the bus parking lot, YHC almost turned left to the church parking lot but quickly digressed.
Feeling warmed up, we headed to the little hill behind the ball field for Sevens, Merkins at the bottom and Squats at the top.
Now that we were really warmed up, we moseyed over to the track for a quick lap then gather back at the bus lot. Time for an oldie but a goody, the Gopher. Partner up, size and speed does not matter. Partner 1 runs a lap around the track, while Partner 2 runs back to the bleachers behind the ball field and complete the circuit of 10 incline Merkins, 15 Dips, and 20 Step-ups (10 each leg). When finished, meet your partner halfway for 10 handslap Merkins, then flap jack. We go until time is called.
I think we managed to get three rounds when I looked at my watch and it was time to head back to the launch point for some Mary. If I remember correctly we completed Flutter Kicks, Hello Dollys and, Rosalita. Another quick look at the watch and we had time for 5 Burpees OYO.
Warm up: SSH, Merkins, MC, IW, Mosey to Turf ‘loft’ for 6 minutes of Mary.
Warm up run to outfield fence and back to rock pile.
Rock Press/Curls/Triceps 20-15-10-5 with shuffles and karaoke in between.

Great group for my first Q at Rock Zero!
17 Pax decided to get their #DownPAINment before their soccer matches and yard work at #F3RockZero. YHC noticed that the the past couple of weeks were gear related so I decided to keep simple to boot camp style beat down.
We Moseyed over to the larger parking lot before the Cricket matches started for some COP.
We headed over to the parking lot with the islands, which Gummy commented that “Nothing good happens” there. We aptly lined up abreast, perform called exercise at each island, wait for the six, then the next exercise, you get the hint/pattern.
We then made our way to the rock pile, technically not gear BTW, choosing a lifting rock and head back to the parking lot. Lining up abreast again, four rounds of Overhead Presses, Curls, Tricep Extensions, and Squats. Starting the first round 20 reps, then 15 reps, then 10 reps, then 5 reps. After each round, run across the parking and back for good measure.
When we were finished with that, YHC introduced the Pax to Brickyard Manmakers courtesy of Cadre Cleve.
We returned our rocks and then moseyed over tot hot box. Upon approaching, it appeared that soccer was starting early, due to picture day. We proceeded with the workout regardless. Partner up, size and speed did not matter. Partner 1 performs called exercise (Incline Merkins and Dips) while partner 2 runs to the lamp post (we all know which one) and back.
Enough of that and time for some people’s chair with 2 rounds of air presses x 50. We went back to grab some more wall when a soccer mom commented that we could get lower, indeed #TWSS.
We headed back to the start point, when Spackler requested some AYG sprints, who am I not to oblige.
We had some time for Mary, LBCs x 20, Heels to Heaven x 15, and Merkins x 15 IC. We tried for some Flutter Kicks, but called it due to traffic.
A cool bakers doezen made the right choice and posted at #F3DeathValley for some serious mumblechatter with some exercises here and there.
Take a lap around the parking lot waiting for Floor Slapper to come in hot circle up for COP. He did not show after all, so we got right down to it.
Mosey down to the track and take a hot lap. Partner up, run in opposite directions meeting up for 10 hand slap merkins, repeato. Mary while the six comes in after each round.
We then moved over to the sideline. Partner 1 sprints across the the field and back while Partner 2 performs called exercise AMRAP, flap jack.
We took another hot lap for good measure before leaving the bowl.
We moseyed up to the rock pile, staying with our partners, choosing a lifting rock, Partner 1 does called exercise while Partner 2 runs down to the bleachers and back, flapjack.
We returned our rocks back to where we kind of found them, then grabbed some wall over by Semi Gloss’ palace for two rounds of air presses x 25.
A quick peek at the watch and we had some time for 1 AYG Done. No time for Mary.
18 PAX climbed out of their #FartSacks and made their way to #F3Skunkworks for some KB work that was full of #MumbleChatter.
The PAX was properly disclaimed and we took off for a couple of laps around the track be fore circling up for a little COP.
We moseyed, most walked across the street to the lower parking lot and lined up across from the hill for a little Jacob’s Ladder up to 7. Start with swings at the bottom and Merkins at the top
Partner Up, and line up on one side of the parking. Partner1 sprints across the the parking lot light while Partner 2 performs called exercise, flap jack.
Staying with your partner, Partner 1 farmer carries both bells to the nearest island while Partner 2 performs called exercise, flap jack.
Return to the launch point with a few minutes left for some Mary.
10 PAX ignored the #Fartsack and the promise of Semi Gloss bobble heads and posted at #Peak51 for their #DRP.
We moseyed to the bus parking lot and took a lap.
Greenway Fountain Circuit
We moseyed down the greenway to Peak 51’s secret tranquility fountain. Choose your rock wisely and perform 3 rounds of the following, changing the merkin type each round.
We headed back towards the school for a little Dora 1-2-3. Staying on the greenway, Partner 1 performs called exercise while Partner 2 runs to the light pole by the baseball field backstop, flapjack.
