#F3Nation has made a successful #LEAP to Johnson City, TN 5 weeks ago. As part of the traditional #Expansion process, the first 6 weeks are led by existing F3PAX to help #giveitaway. Week 5 is the #snotwoggle designed to really give the newly formed PAX a taste of what a #beatdown can be like. Five #HIM from #F3SwampRabbit traveled together Friday night with some serious 2ndF laughs and were surprised by two more #HIM Saturday morning. YHC went ballistic seeing Iceman and Blue Hawaii rolling into the AO. “Oh, It’s ON now boys!!!”
16 #JCFaithful showed up (including 4 FNG’s) for a total of 23 for #snotwoggleweek
Here’s how it went down:
Disclaimer and F3 mission statement
SSH x 17
Hillbillies x 17
Merkins 10 OYO
That’s enough, let’s get busy!
YHC had the first Q so let’s mosey to the parade ground which is lined by light poles for #suicideescalators – start on the sidewalk and run to the first light pole for 10 merkins, return to the start
run to the first light pole for 10 merkins then to second light pole for 20 squats, back to the start
first pole – 10 merkins, second pole – 20 squats, third pole 30 LBC’s, back to start
first pole – 10 merkins, second pole – 20 squats, third pole 30 LBC’s, fourth pole 40 thrusters, back to start
first pole – 10 merkins, second pole – 20 squats, third pole 30 LBC’s, fourth pole 40 thrusters, fifth pole 50 air presses, back to start
first pole – 10 merkins, second pole – 20 squats, third pole 30 LBC’s, fourth pole 40 thrusters, fifth pole 50 air presses, sixth pole 60 flutters back to start
Strong work by all PAX. The torrential rain the night before made for perfect #snotwoggle conditions! There wasn’t a dry spot around!
PETA takes over the second Q to introduce #MerkinTrailOfTears (in honor of our brother Bambi who couldn’t make the trip due to his Grandfather passing away earlier in the week). Continued Prayers for you and your family brother!
MToT consists of all PAX lining up in plank position shoulder to shoulder as close as possible (there’s a reason for this!). With 23 PAX it was decided to travel two at a time (as opposed to singles) so two PAX rotate off the front and #bearcrawl the length of the PAX plank line. Once at the end they call out for the PAX to do two merkins. Next two #bearcrawl down and call out 4 merkins…and continues until all PAX have completed #bearcrawls. With 23 PAX, that comes to 210 merkins total! #smokefest Next, line up for #doubleapplesauce Indian Run around the AO to the stairs…
Erector takes over from here and introduces the #JCPAX to a #swampRabbit favorite – Joe Hendrix! As if shoulders weren’t smoked enough, Build-A-Burpee DORA was called (modified numbers were called due to time), with Joe Hendrix between each set. Partner 1 starts with merkins while P2 #bearcrawls BACKWARDS up the four sets of stairs then run around the front of the amphitheater to return to P1. Continue until 50 merkins, 100 thrusters and 150 squat jumps were completed. Exceptional #hardwork by the PAX! Everybody was hurting but NOBODY was giving up!
Finally, SoccerMom takes over for Mary with #healstoheaven, #pulseups and #AmericanHammers.
