#F3Dromedary – 8 PAX-a-milking

8 PAX took up the call on Hump Day to visit the Marvin Ridge High School campus for a little #F3Dromedary’s #12DaysofChristmas

8 PAX-a-milking

The Thang:

  • launch at 0530 to run over to the front of the High School for an opening COP in cadence with Side Straddle Hops x 20, Imperial Walkers x 15, Merkins x 10
  • The Main event of #12DaysofChristmas.  Traditional format of 1, then 2…1, 3…2…1, etc.
  1. Partridge in a Pear Tree – LittleBabyJog around the upper parking area (not the 0.3 mile main lot).  Plank for the 6.
  2. Turtle Doves – Diamond merkins x 4 (work those wings)
  3. French Hens – Duck Walk / Lunge Walk / Frog Hop (20yds)
  4. Calling Birds – Dive Bomber Merkins (emphasis on the up position like a song bird)
  5. Gold Rings – Burpees!
  6. Geese-a-Laying – Monkey Humpers
  7. Swans-a-Swimming – Flutter (4count = 1) – continue flutter until everyone is caught up
  8. Maids-a-Milking – Sumo Squat Jump (just like milking a cow with emphasis on “oh, that was quite a gusher”)
  9. Ladies Dancing – Imperial Squat Walker
  10. Lords-a-Leaping – Star Jack 2count Dips
  11. Pipers Piping – Wheelbarrow with Partner 15 yd Rail Slide
  12. Drummers Drumming – Partner Carry The audible here due to time escapes me…


  • Some audibles from the original semi-themed plan today due to wet ground and too much of one muscle area.
  • YHC does not normally do #LittleBabyJog, but it proved a good stretch out for the lower-body exercises…  The PAX, including YHC, definitely did not treat it as Sprints, but we’ll get there one day at #Dromedary.
  • Did Brown swear that he “knew” YHC was going to call Burpees at “5 Gold Rings” – some would call that Intuition.  I just listened to an interesting segment on Intuition – Check it out., for it’s mostly BS. Also turns out that we only did 40 burpees total and we did more Diamond Merkins anyway (44).
  • Clothing spectrum – from Stump Hugger w/ short sleeves, shorts, no gloves…all the way to Hot Pants and Gutter Ball covered up with very little flesh exposure.  Temperature is definitely a personal choice.  Check out Backup’s post on what to wear – http://f3nation.com/theforums/topic/cold-weather-workouts-what-to-wear/
  • Working our way through the 12 days seemed pretty simple at first, but noting the clock at 0612 on our last round confirmed that it can fill up the time and provide a great workout.  Grinding on some of those last sets – squats weren’t as deep, chest didn’t quite make it to the ground, and that’s just YHC.
  • What did anyone else see out there?
  • Thanks to Hot Pants for taking us out!
