Although there were a few PAX that arrived shortly after 0530, we began with a brief disclosure, a count of those present, then got right into it.
- Michael Phelps
- Toy Soldiers: 15 in cadence
- Side Straddle Hops: 50 in cadence
It was 25 degrees and there wasn’t much time for dilly dallying around so we got right into the main event: a ladder where we would mosey to each parking lot on the perimeter of the egglawn adding an exercise at every stop.
Here are the exercises we hit. First parking lot, 10 burpees. Second parking lot, 10 burpees and 20 merkins and so-on. We went all the way to 80 (almost)
Here are the exercises:
- Burpees – 10
- Merkins – 20
- Squats – 30
- Flutter Kicks – 40 in cadence
- Monkey Humpers – 50 single count
- Mountain Climbers – 60 in cadence
- Air Press – 70 in cadence
As we moseyed back to home base Auld Lang Syne began playing over the loudspeaker. That was my cue that the 45 minutes was coming to a close. The PAX were able to make it through 20 big boys before the clock ran out, but I’m sure these men will make up the 60 on their own throughout the day.
TClaps to Dynamite for wanting to get them done then, but rules-be-rules.
During the COP we were made aware of an F3 brother whose family has recently lost a loved one suddenly. One of the most important aspects of F3 is our willingness to lead each other through grueling workouts rain or shine, but to also be a light for those in the darkness.
You never know how your words can lift someone up. Encourage those around you to realize their potential. Show someone how much you care about them by listening to what they have to say, and be there for them when they need a shoulder to lean on.
I lift a prayer up for anyone affected by the sudden death of a loved when, especially when it’s self inflicted. No one is alone. And if anyone needs to talk, simply grab a brother after a workout and talk. I know there is not one person in this group that would leave the six out in the cold.
