(Written by Ponzi)
A Ponzi Scheme must by it’s very nature fail. The ghost of Mr. Madoff convinced me last night this was the thing to do, to show the pax how quickly we could increase our reps with minimal work. Well, as with all Ponzi Schemes, it was just smoke and mirrors and turned out you always have to put in the work if you want to get better. There is not a get fit quick scheme that works, not even 7 minute abs.
Conditions: 75 and clear

Start off by crossing Bear Crawl bridge and circle up.
16 Monkee Humpers
16 4ct Flutter Kicks
32 Monkee Humpers
32 4ct Flutter Kicks
Mosey to the log pile and pair up
16 Overhead Squats
32 Overhead Squats
Elephant Carry (straddle log and carry it) to midfield.
Lunge walk with log across rest of field.
4 jump squat, bear crawl up hill, 8 flutter kicks, crabwalk down hill
16 jump squat, bear crawl up hill, 32 flutter kicks, crabwalk down hill
somewhere we got off and ended with 32 extra jump squats
Here is when the scheme completely unraveled and we abandoned the hill. YHC could not take his on Q any more.
Carry the log back to its home, then go get bricks and circle up again.
We did some Merkins, 32 overhead presses, 32 4ct flutter kicks, 32 rows.
Somewhere around here the #mumblechatter really picked up. Seems there is some confusion as to what in cadence means, and how it should be applied to merkins. I believe there was some fun being poked at YHC, but I couldn’t hear it as my brain had abandoned unnecessary functions, like hearing.
Bear crawl back across bridge
Get back in teams. One man runs to the speed bump, other does a wall squat.
Members switch, then back to the shed.
Dunphy broke out some ice climbers (?) for the final three minutes. YHC was slightly incoherent.
Pray for Walker and family
Pray for Mayhem to recover quickly
Pray for Charleston families
Personal note: It is an honor to be a part of F3. 3 months ago I was sitting on the couch trying real hard to ignore this thing. I needed this, and I needed it more than I realized. Thank you all for coming out this morning for my VQ, even if it was a little shaky.
