I’m Dreaming of an F3 Christmas

AO: Boneyard

When: 12/17/2021

QIC: Dinghy

PAX (12): Animal, Boomer, DIY, Feathers, Mater, Meatball, Morphine, Speedo, Zohan, Oxtail, FNG Drew


With the weather outside being (somewhat) frightful, one might think that most men would be  fartsacking more. Add to that the holiday party schedule, and “Sad Clown”-itis might be rampant. Not so with F3 HIMs (or at least most F3 PAX would like to think that). To combat that malaise, as well as ensure that those attending FeatherFest would be well prepared physically for the rigors therein, YHC prepared a special beatdown to celebrate the system.


Moseyed around the back of the ampitheatre, around to the lacrosse field parking lot. Warmed up with the following:

10 Weedpickers

10 Windmills

10 Moroccan Night Clubs

10 Hillbillies

10 SSH’s

Slow mosey to the “Field of Pain”

The Thang:

(A) Using a 12 days of Christmas theme, PAX performed the following exercises/reps, adding subsequent exercises each round. Think “12 Days of Christmas” F3 style:

1 Down and back like Bernie (Sanders) vs. Partridge in a pear tree

2 Sumo squats vs. Turtle doves

3 Inch worms vs. French hens

4 Wide Merkens vs. Calling birds

5 Clap burpees vs.  Golden rings

6 Monkey humpers vs. Geese a laying (similar motion)

7 Alpha flutters (kicks) vs. Swans a swimming

8 Flailing Annies (i.e., Annies with a wider arch) vs. Maids a milking

9 Bonnie Blairs vs. Ladies dancing

10 Bobby Hurleys vs. Lords a leaping

11 Pickle pointers vs. Pipers piping

12 Mountain climbers vs. Drummers drumming

Mary for the 6

(B) Walking Jack Webb – Pax lined up again, then conducted increasing reps of walk-lunges (1-10) across the field, accompanied by Merken/Air Press combo of 1 to 4 (i.e., Jack Webb)

(C) Mary – 3 minutes (Gas Pumpers, Box Cutters, Rosalitas)


  • Prayers for Zohan’s wife, may her job hunt prove succesful
  • Praise for DIY’s improvement in employment status/promotion
  • Prayers for Drew’s friend’s healing
  • Prayers for Mater’s patience (for he and his family) during this holiday season

Naked-Man Moleskin:

One of the biggest complements YHC took away from this morning was “Who would think that you could sweat in December.” One would like to think that it’s part weather, part strength of beatdown. The hope is it’s more of the latter than the former, and that YHC is continuing to develop his craft and improve the quality of workout delivered. Iron sharpens iron, and hopefully the YHC’s iron is becoming less rusty and helping to sharpen others. Always an honor, men!
