A solid 50 dads and 2.0’s for this summers 3rd installment of Area 51 F3 Dads 2014.

The fields of Beatty Park were a bit crowded today with a game of Cricket on one pitch and another bootcamp going on another – #ClipBoarder #ForProfitWorkout #WaitTheyCanDoThisCoed?  Anyhow, we moseyed over to a soggy but unused portion of left field to get things started.


  • SSH x 10
  • Merkins x 5
  • IW x 10
  • Mountain Climbers x 10
  • Cherry Pickers x 10

The Thang:

Line up along the fence for some animal walks, each about 10 yards out and back:

  • Bear crawl
  • Snake crawl
  • Frog hops
  • PAX choice – Crocodile (elbows and knees)
  • PAX choice – Giraffe – wait no one knows how do walk like a giraffe
  • PAX choice – Crab walk
  • PAX choice – Unicorn (2.0 on dad’s shoulders and flapping arms, dad uses hand on forehead as horn and trots around)

Last one was a wheelbarrow of the 2.0’s out and back.

Sharks and Minnows – about 10 sharks chased all the minnows around the infield.  Once tagged you sat out until all Minnows were tagged (Except for Bratwurst, who made easy work of outrunning a bunch of elementary school kids, apparently the Swift workout is proving valuable)

Rinse and repeat with some new Sharks and Bratwurst thrown in as a Shark.

Next up – Exercise dodge ball.  4 balls of different colors every time you get hit you have to do 5 of the color coded exercise – Blue – Swimmers (plank and touch hand to shoulder), Green – Mountain Climber, Red – Cherry Picker, and Yellow – SSH.

Round 1 – only 2.0’s can throw the ball, Round 2 only dads can throw the ball.

Relay Races – form 5 lines (about 7 2.0’s each line and associated Dad’s)

Race 1 – Partner Carry – Dad’s carry 2.0’s out and back (approx. 80 yards).  If you have multiple 2.0’s you run more than once – All of a sudden having a bunch of kids does’t seem like a great idea.

Race 2 – Standard out and back AYG sprint relay, every dad and 2.0 runs.


A great way to start a Saturday by spending some time with the kids and getting a some exercise in.  Looked like we had everything out there from 3 to about 12 years old and maybe a teenager or two.  We made sure the 2.0’s quickly learned that sometimes at F3 you get dirty, sandy, and wet – its all part of the deal, but you can wipe it all off on your shirt because mom is not around.

If you get the chance, sign up to Q one of these events.     My girls had a great time developing the Weinke and teaching me some of the games they played in P.E. at school.

Thanks do Dolphin for the great send off.

Announcements –

Sign up for F3 Camp August 15 -17 at Camp Thunderbird.  It will be a great way to finish off the summer and spend a weekend doing F3 Dads with the addition of the lake, pool, canoe’s, and campfires.
