Saturday Morning Doracides

DATE: 7/13/2019.

TEMP: 73.

WEATHER: partly cloudy.


PAX: Mookie, Rabbit, and Walmart.

AO: Liberty Park.

WELCOME/DISCLAIMER: Q gave disclaimer. Q is not a professional. PAX are here of their own volition, doing each exercise voluntarily. Modify as necessary. You against you, but don’t hurt yourself.

Mosey to the tennis courts for paint the lines.


PARTNER DORACIDES: for Doracides, PAX normally split into partners. One partner does the exercises while the other runs suicides. Q modified the Doracides with burpees for added fun. Q had PAX run suicides across one tennis court, doing a burpee at each line before running back to the start. Once PAX made it to the opposite side of the tennis court, PAX would run straight back to the start doing a burpee at each line. Since there were 3 PAX today, Q had PAX do 3-person Doracides.

  • 200 lunges (single count).
  • 300 Merkins.
  • 400 Squats.
  • 500 Overhead claps.


  • Freddie Mercuries x25 IC.
  • WWI Situps x25 CC.
  • Flutterkicks x15IC.
  • Uptown Crunch x15 CC, both sides.


MOLESKIN: PAX were winded during the Doracides, but otherwise had good Mumblechatter. Attempted EH of other men working out at the park.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: PAX proposed rescheduling Second F for a Friday this month. PAX also discussed the push to have 10 men attend the next Saturday workout (July 20). EHing will be needed to get all current members of the F3 Plano groupchat to attend, as well as FNG’s.

An Absolutely Terrible Picnic

DATE: 7/2/2019
TEMP: 75.
WEATHER: partly cloudy. Very breezy and cool.

PAX: BOOMER, Mookie, and Walmart.

•IW x 10 IC
•Moroccan Night Clubs x50 IC
•Merkins x25 CC
•Pickle Pounders x15 IC

Launch of the Liberty AO (Tank Park/Parked Tank)

Conditions: YHC called it the dead of summer, the other PAX said it was early spring.

Quick Mosey
10 Good mornings
10 Imperial Storm Troopers
10 Burpees – on your own
35 SSH

The Thang
Workstation 1) Merkin Flowers by Moby – while “Flowers” by Moby (made famous by Gone in 60 Seconds) played, anytime they sang “green sally up” you go up on your merkin and hold then when they sing “green sally down” go down on your merkin and hold your chest off the ground. Played through to the end of the song. Amounts to thirty pause reps in 3 minutes and 30 seconds.

Squat Flowers by Moby – same rules as above except with squats. So, we spent the first part of the morning in the low squat and low merkin holds.

On this Day:
On this day (June 4th) in 1984, Bruce Springsteen released his album Born in the U.S.A. – therefore our background noise was the album, Born in the U.S.A.

Workstation 3)
-Plank Circuit (30 seconds each way)

-Moseyed over to the picnic tables for 3 sets of 15 dips
-We ended with 10-minute walking lunges by the tank in honor of the 75th anniversary of D-Day which is this Thursday June 6th.

Circle of Trust, Count-o-Rama, Name-o-Rama:
Prayer requests: Boomer and FNG “Ledger” both expecting babies soon (first baby for both of them too). Ledger’s grandfather is in the hospital, so we want to keep he and his family covered in prayers.

2 PAX – Silicon
Q: Maverick

None – Zilch – Nada.

2 lonely PAX arrived 5 minutes early on a balmy Saturday morning to better themselves for God, their families, and themselves. I know several have been out due to prior engagements or injuries but we did see the triumphant return of Silicon this week after a few weeks hiatus and he has certainly dove right back in. We truly missed everyone who decided that the fartsack was a bit warmer and probably more inviting, however our low attendance wasn’t going to stop us from a great Beatdown..
