One on One
16 ballers showed up in 30 degree temps to D up in a zone with man to man principles. This is how it went:
- High Knees/Butt Kickers
- Defensive Slides in place of Carioca
Circle up for:
- SSH x 16 IC
- Hillbillies x 16 IC
- SLOW Cotton Pickers x 8
- Arm circles
Then we got into THING 1:
Partner Up. Manmaker modified suicides:
Start in the lot near the rockpile. One partner got a paver while the other started work on 150 squats then 150 LBCs, repeating once done. Partner 1 runs with the block to the end of the nearest parking lot row and does 5 manmakers, then comes back and hands the rock to Partner 2, who runs with the block to the end of the second row and does 4, then exchange again 3rd row with 3, then ladder back up to 5 before returning the rocks to their home.
THING PART 2:
Mosey down to lot with basketball hoop where there was a basketball and a strategically placed piece of tape that about 15 feet away from the hoop. Partners stood across the makeshift lane from one another to be placed on opposite teams into 2 8 man squads. Each squad selected one shooter to shoot a free throw for each round with a 5 burpee penalty for missing and a 5 burpee penalty for losing. (Maximum of 10 burpees for a loss, but no burpees if your team makes)
After each round, 2 stations that teams ran opposite ways to get to: One ran to the Shelter for 10 Boxcutters and 10 LBCs IC, while the other ran to the Rockpile for 15 curl/push presses. and then complete the circle around the AO, passing the opposing team on their way to the other station, then start another round. We got through 4 rounds of shooting and 3.5 stations apiece before calling…
- Low flutter x 16
- KGBs x 10 (YHC lost count here, meant to stop at 8)
- Alternating supermans x 8
- Full supermans x 4
- Mini D-Dog and Runner’s lunge sesh
Great time injecting a little friendly makeshift competition into the beatdown. YHC registered exactly 2 miles despite all the nonsense and reps. YHC could have probably practiced his instructions better for what was more of a complicated workout than originally anticipated. The squad that had the Q figured it all out, but the other squad was all turned around, despite Q’s clear and understandable mandates.
Luthor, Private Ryan and Hops all drained their shots, foretelling good performances for the Devils, the Heels and Buffalo. Perhaps a Final Four trip is on the agenda for each, although I was disappointed Luthor didn’t strike the Zion pose after hitting his FT. Fire Chicken missed badly, which is a good sign if you’re a Billikens fan, but word is that he finally knocked down a shot after blaming everything from the ball to the incline of the pavement. Overall, we shot 3-8 as a group. Shaq, we’re comin for you.
Prayers were said for Luthor’s office administrator Crystal, whose mother is in hospice, Mayweather’s co-worker’s daughter Savannah, who sustained a kick from a horse, and Popeye’s friend Greg, who has returned home from a Honduran mission trip to a couple pieces of bad news. YHC also said a prayer for the families of those killed in the New Zealand shootings, senseless violence doesn’t work for anybody.
Great Coffeeteria time, well attended, with all laughing about Zion video linked here:

Every day is better with F3, and remember you’ll be appreciating these cold 30 degree days while the sweat pours off you at 90% humidity in mid-August.
Thanks for helping me to be a better Leader and HIM each day.
