With an amazing sunrise and an inviting hill mountain in the background, Bing led the disclaimer and brief on F3 for FNGs.

  • burpees,
  • merkins,
  • dancing bears,
  • crab cakes,
  • flutters;
  • mosey to the top of Mother Hill (MH).

The Thang:

Partnered up and partners together totaled the following in order, running together down and back up MH before, between, and after each exercise:

  • 50 Burpees
  • 100 Merkins
  • 150 Squats
