We had another good turnout for our second F3 Dads summer workout.
Big Pappy, Clavin and Bed Pan were our jockeys.
Big Pappy: At first it looked a little light in attendance, but then a couple of minutes before start time and Stogie appears over the horizon leading a large group over the hill to the starting point that Clavin and I changed last minute due to space restrictions.
We started off with the disclaimer then a simple warm up of 10 SSH , 10 Toy Soldiers, 10 Hillbillies, and 10 Don Q’s. Time to play swarm. Many 2.0’s took turns playing the human, but the fun was being one of many bees and darting out the hive to be on the chase. After each turn 5 burpees for Dad’s. What a great group of 2.0’s. It was an honor to be apart of it.
Clavin: Once the swarm begins to settle down from Big Pappy’s exercise … he calls for me to wrestle the troops over towards my turn.
I call for two lines …. 2.0s in one ( noting there are 16 of them ) and dads in the other ( seeing the smaller number of 12 present).
I now introduce all to Capn’ Crunch, my 2.0 and see if there are any FNGs, there are 2 present so I quickly address the core principles before having CC show pax the exercises we’ll use … there are 4 flags spaced about evenly and we do bear crawl ( Yogi Bear) crab walk ( Mr. Crabs) bunny hop ( Bugs Bunny) and the crowd favorite inch worm ( Future Worm) this last one is thanks to Toto who showed this one on a rainy day about a year ago … on six shrug shoulders until reaching next flag. Now since there were more 2.0s …. I let them start and by the third or fourth pax I now informed the men that our start line was on the OTHER side of the field ( stacked deck? Of course let the kids win one over the old man!!) we did this twice more hearing some girls complain of “not getting dirty” and Mayor wanting this exercise to disappear….. also noticing many of 2.0s moseying and when called out the response was “ were modifying!” Someone taught them well!
Next we create a tunnel of adults for 2.0s to crawl through and then the pax follows lastly ( have to make sure both sides are dirty wet and grass covered !) and I thought it was time … wrong …. only half of my allotted time so we mosey to flag, pledge and I lead pax in some of the more fun and funny exercises their dads do at some of the workouts such as goofballs, Moroccan Night Clubs ( tough exercise that makes us all ripped ) and then ask if any Star Wars fans are present ( as if …. with this many young boys …. of course!!) so Imperial Walkers ends my set …. so let’s mosey on back …… well Bed Pan didn’t have us go THAT far and………
Bed Pan: We played sharks and minnows, oldest kids were sharks. Mosey to just outside the tennis courts for some tug o war. Girls beat the boys. Volt almost won him against 16 kids. ***it should be noted that bed pan received flack for this backblast as it was light. Clavin reminded him that Sabotage used a stick with leaves as camouflage and walked inconspicuously around most every shark and made it to the end.
Mayor: I cannot thank you all enough for leading these and for the dads coming out. Its a lot of fun watching the kids have a great time. I look forward to seeing everyone with their 2.0s on August 24 at 0700 at the Yank. Doodles, Norwood and Sister Act will lead us around.
