Ok, so most of you know that I’m not exactly “creative” when it comes to my Qs, but most of the time they deliver. That being said, after learning about the sweet hill over at the Walmart annex of Folsom, I’ve come to love the triple nickel! Where’s the hill downtown? You might ask. Well, there’s not really one. YHC made one. Before I get down to the details, I just want to say, thank you men for coming out to support not only me, but the great AO of Downtown!
SSH, Toy Soldiers x10 IC…….mosey
YHC took the long route to the infamous parking deck. Once we arrive, I call what’s about to take place. I ask if all were familiar with the triple nickel, most understood and the rest figured it out quick because QIC is on the clock. Not having a hill, I’ll use the parking deck. Triple nickel is called. 5 jump lunges(each leg) sprint the flats and nur the ramps of the parking deck to the top. Plenty of mumblechatter was heard, but all complied. Once at the top, do 5 jump squats. No, you’re not using the steps, you’re gonna mosey back down to start the long way. Repeat 4 more times to complete the nickel. YHC not ready to chill calls a mosey about 2 blocks to the next round of entertainment. Partner up, P1 performs exercise AMRAP while P2 performs said exercise. Round 1, high knees run a distance and back and partner amraps Imperial Squats. Flap jack, round 2 buttkicks and low slow squats, round 3 high knees and calf raises, round 4 buttkicks and Toy Soldiers, round 4 nur and monkey Humpers. (Downtown favorite when backed up to Franklin BLVD) Plank for the six, 3 second recover. Let’s mosey. Mumblechatter, “we just did that). No time for it, we Headed back to start, we halt at a wall for some wall sits adding a March IC for who knows how many reps, too much mumblechatter to concentrate. Mosey back to start. Q asks Island to call an exercise while the Q’s phone was retrieved from his truck. I could hear “thank goodnesss” when LBCs were called. Finally, I call Sister Act to count off 22 Merkins for the Vets.

YHC took us out in prayer.
Just want to say that you men and the relationships and fellowship experienced in this group have been extremely appreciated! All men need this type of environment to coincide with life to make it not only easier, but to also feel like they’re not going through life alone. The mumblechatter and trash talk doesn’t cost anymore and it’s beneficial to get up before daylight and become a better Man. Thank you for what F3 and especially the Gastonia region has done being a part of my life.
