6 PAX have been suffering through one of the longest periods of drought since the late 1800’s. From Jan. 1 to April 8th the Tampa area has received less than 2 inches of rain. To help bring about the much needed rain, QIC Tebow lead PAX in an F3 inspired rain dance.
The Native American rain dance is a traditional ceremony performed by many indigenous tribes across North America. It is a form of prayer and ritual aimed at calling forth rain for the benefit of crops, animals, and people. The rain dance is a powerful and symbolic act that reflects the deep connection between Native American communities and the natural world. Although the specific details of the ceremony vary from tribe to tribe, the rain dance is a vital part of many Native American cultures and has been practiced for generations.
The F3 rain dance started out with a mile long Indian Run. Afterwards PAX circled up around a speaker and worked out while listened a rain inspired playlist which included songs such as November Rain, No Rain, Have You Ever Seen the Rain, Let it Rain, I’m Only Happy When it Rains, Who’ll Stop the Rain, and Here Comes the Rain Again.
The rain dance went as follows,
Lunges around the cones set up in a circle around the speaker
Bear crawls around the cones
Duck walks around the cones
25 Flutter kicks
Burpee broad jump around the cones
25 Split jacks
Laterals around the cones

25 Jiminy crickets
Hillbillies around the cones
25 Monkey humpers
Reverse lunges around the cones
25 Plank jacks

After the dance, PAX ran another mile long Indian Run and started the dance all over again for the last 10 minutes.
