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.)

Up Straddle Hop

So, I tore my calf the other day and have been on the IR for a bit, but did not want to miss our monthly convergence...so I grabbed my kettlebell to do some work with when the PAX were doing exercises I couldn't do and headed out to the beatdown. Circled up. First exercise called was SSH, which I did not want to do and put pressure on the torn calf, so I started hopping on one leg IC while still doing the upper body motion. Apparently, it looked funny as the PAX started laughing and then doing it themselves. 43 men hopping on one leg and waving their arms would certainly have looked awesome to any passersby! And doing 30 IC of those destroyed my right (good) leg, so I figured it might need a name? Let the PAX call it and do 25-30 IC with each leg. It burns. For good measure, the Q next called 10 OYO burpees, which I tried to do 1-legged, and after 2 had absolutely no strength left in that good leg, so that could be an add-on to the exercise.
