Trying to make sense of the exercises you may hear called at an F3 bootcamp? Need something new for your first or 100th Q? You’ve found the place. (You also may want to consult The Lexicon, at least after your first workout, to make sense of what just happened.)


Combination of a Groiner, Mahktar N' Diayes, and Chilly Jack, done on an 8-count cadence. An awesome core and upper body workout that is both the solution to flabby abs, and a reason to beg absolution for your sins. Start in plank position and perform a single Groiner (cadence "1" jump feet forward, "2" jump feet back), then Mahktar N' Diayes to Chillcut position (cadence "3" & "4" with drop to each elbow), then Chilly Jack (cadence "5" feet out, "6" feet together), and finally Mahktar N' Diayes to plank starting position (cadence "7" and "ONE, TWO, etc." with rise on each hand). Best done in mulch, dirt or at edge of grass and asphalt/concrete so hands/elbows can be on grass while feet have traction. Also works well in parking lot conveyer belts when PAX are provided with small squares of cardboard left at Absolution station to protect elbows. Smart Q's will introduce this with the cadence, but then instruct PAX to do sets of 15-30 OYO (as the Q will suffer too and should avoid giving the impression of weakness to the PAX, lest he suffer insufferable mumble chatter).
