The Thang:

-Mosey to The Stop Sign, place wagers on how long Monkey’s leftover Custom F3 Politics-&-Real-Estate-Style Race Arrow Sign pointing to Rumble will last before being taken. Also wonder what leftover political candidate/real estate sign he painted over. Also wonder where he was on such a fine morning. We think working at the beach maybe. We should call him.

-Mosey to the granite, choose a boulder. On your 6. American Hammers x 10 (hold granite sitting, rotate left, rotate right).

After many audibles, since the IQ Test of how to do a Granite Indian Run Style March required excessive modification…

-Overhead carry to the flag pole.

-Plank for the 6. (Side Note: Yogi solved the problem extremely quickly: have two men not carrying a boulder to allow for the man at the back of the Indian Run to do 5 burpees and catch up to the front.  He now also answers to his secondary F3 Name:  Rain Man)

-10 Stability Merkins (1 hand on boulder; 1 hand on ground; 5 each hand). 

-Granite Lunges to the grassy corner of the property.

-Rock Throws! 

-Pick up the granite, hurl it. Repeat. (3 minutes)

-Flutter Kicks x 20, in cadence

-Pick up the granite. Hurl it OR Drop it behind shoulder (2 minutes)

-Granite Indian Ruck. Man at the back Run to the front. Overhead carry as much as possible; modify as needed.

-Deadlift to Curl to Press x 5. 

-Return rock.

-Mosey to first lightpole, 5 Burpees

-Mosey to next lightpole, 5 Burpees
