The BackBlast:

It was a warm 30 degrees as PAX rolled in to Bill Fay Park.  Goggles and LD were already at it when YHC arrived.  F3Nation has an overall goal of recording 1 million burpees in January and Goggle has committed to doing an average of 100/day.  The day before, he was wondering which AO would offer the most burpees, YHC assured him that there’d be at least 1 at Row the Boat as we kick off the new year.  Here’s what we did:

WARM-UPS (# to celebrate the New 2021 Year)
SSH x21 IC
Plank Jacks x21 IC
Imperial Walkers x21 IC
Collard Pickers x21 IC
Run the perimeter of the parking lot

We began with holding a plank while having a little F3 trivia (what we’re doing and where we’ve been).  PAX had 5 seconds to answer a question once asked.  If answered correctly, we all did 1 burpee.  If not, 5 burpees.  No PAX could answer consecutive questions.

  • What is the mission of F3: The mission of F3 is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.
  • Name 1 of the 5 Core Principles of F3 (repeat until all 5 are covered):
    • Free of charge
    • Open to all men
    • Workouts held outdoors
    • Workouts are peer led
    • Ends in Circle of Trust
  • Where was the 1st F3 group founded?  –  Charlotte, NC
  • What was the date of the 1st workout for F3 Kinston?  –  August 8, 2020
  • How many AO’s are currently on the map at F3 Kinston?  –  12

Run the perimeter of the parking lot

Next was BLIMPS.  We spread out along the speed bump.  With each of the following exercises, PAX would move forward together to the next parking space line.

  • 5 Burpees
  • 10 Lunges Each Leg
  • 15 Imperial Walkers
  • 20 Merkins
  • 25 Plank Jacks

Last was Captain Thor:  Alternating WWII Sit-ups and American Hammers.  Increasing reps from 1 &4, 2&8, 3&12, etc until 10&40.  We made it to 9&36 when time ran out.
