F3 & Covid Disclosures

Thriller hurt his back doing man-makers last Thursday.  Don’t be like him.  Modify as necessary.

If you do hurt yourself, Thriller has office hours in Newport News on Thursdays.

Delta is getting worse so if you are sick, then go away.  If you don’t have your shots yet, go get them.  Its what the cool kids are doing.

In all seriousness though, if anyone reading this has not been vaccinated and wants to have an informed and non-judgmental conversation about risks and benefits of getting vaccinated with a health professional who also distrusts the government let me know and I will buy you a beer or coffee and we can have a conversation.

  • Plan was to bear crawl between each exercise, but apparently some PAX were afraid of a little fresh fertilizer and pesticides on the ground.   Instead we did squats between reps.  Except for one overachiever (Wicked) who did bear crawls on his own.  The Ab Killer went well but the other exercises devolved into a free for all.  Some did lunges, some did squats, some did merkins, some did nothing.  Interestingly enough, no one chose to do burpees.
  • Marvel had to catch a bat one time but he did it dressed in a dark knight costume so it was extra cool
  • Huggies house was infested with praying mantis as a child from a defective Christmas tree
  • Question was postulated during warmarma- what will happen if Billboard comes, will he be able to find us?  Answer: no, but he was at the flags when we returned.  We assume he did 500 burpees while waiting on us.
  • Somehow Huggies managed to make it through the whole workout without getting sweat on his cotton shirt.  Maybe dumping a box of praying mantis on him in his sleep will make him sweat more next time.
