The Shops At Fallen Timbers


Boot camp style workout at the Shops at Fallen Timbers. Group will meet next to the movie theater. Easy access to the Wabash Cannonball Trail for some running or rucking. Also, plenty of blacktop to make use of, not to mention a little green space across from the theater.

    Welcome to F3, who’se mission is to plant, grow, and serve small workout groups for men, to invigorate male community leadership. That’s done through 5 core principles of all F3 workouts.
    Always Open to all Men

    And ends in a circle of trust.

    PAX in attendance: Wipers, Charlotte, Vila, Mercy, Lonzo, Footloose, Wall-E, Coconut (Q), Chopstick (Coconut-2.0). Simmons was present but rucked as alternate workout.

    The Thang.

    Placed pieces of the shovel flag in 3 ‘Treasure’ locations. Laid out three choose your own adventure courses, each leading to one of the pieces.

    SSH, Alligator Merkin, Mountain Climbers

    Counted off the PAX by threes and assigned one team to each course.

    Course 1–Woods of Woe
    >>Duck Walk 2 blocks to first decision point.
    >>Choice of spider crawl or run. Spider Crawl results in pitfall with penalty BBSU and go back to the beginning (repeat duck walk) Run passes to next stage
    >>Lunge walk from run end to next waypoint (pick up the 6 by reverse lunge walk)
    >>Broad jump across clearing

    >>Success: Claim the wand of Wisdom (flagpole) and complete course with ~0.5 mi indian run back to base.

    Course 2–Mountain of Madness
    >>Bear crawl an obscene distance to first decision point.
    >>Choice of more bear crawl or crawl bear. Crawl bear leads to pitfall with penalty air presses and have to restart. Bear crawl becomes ladder of bear crawl with hand-release merkins across parking spaces. Crawl bear and repeat ladder to pick-up 6.
    >>Bear Crawl/HRM ladder becomes dragon walk/swimmer ladder for another 17 parking spaces.

    >>backpedal across parkinglot past yeti.
    >>Team count Mountain Climbers (200)
    >>Team mosey to recover the Sword of strength (shovel) and march back to base

    Course 3–Swamp of Sufferin’ Succotash!
    >>Alligator Merkin an awful amount to first choice point
    >>Choose broad jump burpees, or continue alligator merkin. Burpees lead to pitfall with penalty decline merkins and restart. Continued alligator merkin leads to next waypoint.
    >>Ape Hop across field.
    >>Monkey humper until all team members have completed 50
    >>Sprint to next waypoint
    >>Low Lunge Walk to next waypoint
    >>Choice of Dirty Hookups or Box Jumps. Dirty hookups lead to pitfall with penalty gas pumps (200 as a team). Box Jumps (3×10) lead to next choice point.
    >>Choice of area to investigate: a leads to pitfall with 10 rounds of short stairs and go back to choice point. b leads to treasure find. Claim the Banner of Brilliance (flag) and Indian run ~1/4 mi. back to base.

    All teams contribute their treasures to reassemble the shovel flag.
