Monster Truck ‘in with Dora

WEATHER: 36f cool & comfortable, no beanie day


24 PAX including 1 FNG crawled out of their toasty fartsacks to join YHC for some tire work.  Thanks to KEN Dolls’ keen observation during last Shawshank Saturday post, he saw 5 truck tires by the fence.  Funny things you see in the daylight.  THANKS Ken Doll for YHC inspiration for today’s workout.  The PAX got to enjoy their new toys and team flip them to the sideline and use it as prop for an exercise set of dips, step ups, and YES, everyone’s favorite, ONE LEGGED BURPEES. Team carry back to starting line, team shoulder press, and rinse and repeat.  So much to do and so little time, YHC was able to squeeze in one cycle of DORA’s CURSE.  Introduced a few new moves to challenge the PAX.  The SWIPER, starting position – crab crawl, exercise – right leg goes under left leg, left arm reaches over to the right of body. 5 reps per each side.  AROUND THE WORLD – Moving side plank around the picnic benches with feet on the seat/table and hands on the ground.  ONE LEGGED BURPEES – Can you make BURPESS suck more? YES, with one foot raised (using tire) perform burpees with a one-legged hop and decline merkin.  Loved the PAX mumble chatter of checking the Q calendar for when I am on next (to make sure they post).  AWESOME JOB PAX!


As the PAX noticed, the number 24 theme was evident in the WO today including the number of PAX (coincidence…. I think not.)  The TIRE WORKOUT was inspired after reading/listening to the book FEARLESS, the life of ADAM BROWN, member of SEAL TEAM SIX.  If there was ever a role model for F3 Values, this man was it.  His story showed how his Christian faith helped him and his family overcome so many challenges, that included recovery from crack addition in his early years, losing an eye and use of his hand, and still becoming a member of SEAL TEAM SIX, the elite of the elite. He was a true CHRISTIAN WARRIOR. Adam Brown’s favorite number was 24 so hence the reps.   Read or listen to the book if you have the opportunity or ask SANTA for Christmas.


John 15:13 – “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”, on Adam Brown’s headstone.
