Adventures

This morning a single Pax walked the lonely streets of The Bee Hive with a Ruck on his back in hopes of seeing someone for fellowship. They never came. Of shaming is over now.

Disclaimer given and the Pax moseyed to the Bandshell for the:

Warm-A-Rama

SSH x 20 ic

Sealjacks x 15 ic

Plank x 1 minute

Peter Parker’s x 20 ic

LBACs x 10 each direction

BBACs x 10 each direction

Huggy Bears x 10

Plank x 1 minute

There was a lot of good conversation around the idea is the #getright. After listening to the #43feetpodcast the realization hit me the Get Right is a continuous process that will never end. The analogy of tending a sail boat or piloting an airplane was brought up. Even though you have set a course there must be a consistent adjustment to counteract the outside forces of the wind and waves to maintain the course to the destination. If you leave it to chance you may end up in Perry county, not a place you want to go, trust me.

The THANG

First Pax calls out an exercise for the remaining Pax to complete while they go to the truck (~ ⅛ mile) to retrieve their coupon for the workout. When Pax one returns Pax two goes back with Pax one to retrieve their coupon. Then Pax three goes to get his coupon with Pax two while Pax one stays with the group. We continue until all Pax has a coupon.

The exercises were:

  1. Squats
  2. Alternating Lunges
  3. LBCs
  4. Calf Raises
  5. Toy Soldiers
  6. Big Boys Sit-ups
  7. Overhead Claps
  8. Merkins
  9. ?

Once all Pax has their coupons we used the coupons to do:

  • Squats x 20 ic
  • LBCs x 20 ic
  • Chest Presses x 10 ic
  • Lunge Twist x 10 oyo
  • Big Boys Sit-ups x 20 ic
  • Skull Crushers x 10 oyo
  • Calf Raises x 20 ic
  • American Hammers x 10 ic
  • Back Rows x 10/side oyo

All Pax moseyed to the truck to return their coupons and then back to the shovel flag.

LEADing 219

Happy New Year! Today is January 1, 2019.  The starting temperature for our workout was 52 degrees.  Yes, the year is already off to a great start.  Eleven PAX gathered at the Lehigh Valley Road Runners Club house, planted three shovel flags by 0900 for a special New Years Day workout and CSAUP.  It turns out there just happened to be a 10K race going off at 9am as well, so it was hard to find a parking spot; but great way to plant some F3 seeds in the hearts and minds of all those other crazy people out there that are serious about taking the Daily Red Pill without excuse.  T-Claps to Long Haul for EHing everyone within arms length of him.

Disclaimer  – We are not professionals, we don’t assume any liability you do.  Modify as needed to include not even doing the exercises.  Aye!

F3 Lehigh Valley’s State of the Union

Eleven PAX gathered at Brookside Country Club around 7 pm for a end of year fellowship night.

I.  OFFICIAL BUSINESS:

YHC kicked off the evening with official F3 Business.   We highlighted our successes for 2018 and shared some ideas for 2019.

Here is a summary:

 Measurement2018 Actual2019 Goal
1FNG’s61219

We have two measurable mantras for the coming year:

  1. Two Hundred Nineteen in 2019!
  2. Leaders who multiply leaders!

Everything we do will in some way tie back to making these two things happen.  That said, we are actively finding ways to creatively share F3 with more guys and give current guys more leadership opportunities.

II.  BEER EXCHANGE – Dr. Seuss led us in a circle of beer, stating your F3 Name, Age, and a brief pitch for Beer you brought.

All the beers!

III.  DINNER & DRINKS – The Underwoods sponsored appetizers and drinks for the group.  Pax made cash  donations of $188, all of which was put into the F3 – Flame Bank Account to sponsor 11 men at the February 2, Men with No Regrets Conference.

IV.  BOOK EXCHANGE – All books were wrapped and numbers randomly picked for a White Elephant style steal the book.  Wild at Heart and Mentoring with Tony Dungie were the popular books each stolen 3 times.  Freed to Lead was a popular third on the steal list.

V.  UGLY SWEATER –  A silent ballot was taken and Flame came out the winner with his Hulk Hogan style Santa sweater.  He received a $10.00 Wawa gift card for his efforts.

Flame and his ugly “Jacked Santa” sweater.

 The Thang:

Mosey to playground for a round of the 12-Days of Christmas.

Each day’s gift along with each previous days’ gifts were given to the PAX by their “Q-Love”.  Some PAX occasionally burst into song as their enthusiasm grew.  Some were naughty (Zena) and stole the weinke half-way through the routine.  He should have been given penalty Burpees!

We made it through to the twelfth day but ran out of time on the way down before we got to the flutter kicks so not all the 12th day’s gifts were fully unpacked.

COT: prayers for Uptown Girl’s M and soon-expected daughter.  Prayers for Zena’s coworker who is seeking a relationship with God which has a lot to do with the Christmas season!

SEEK AND YOU FIND ….

It was a beautiful 20 degrees this morning.  Today’s workout was inspired by the Advent Season.  The bible verse Matthew 6:33 came to me as we prepare our hearts to receive the miracle of God’s coming to dwell within each of us.  “Seek first God’s kingdom and righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well.”  This workout was designed to be as challenging, encouraging, and rewarding as this line of scripture.

Warmarama

Half imperial walkers with hand touching alternating legs, alternating leg lunges on bench, arm circles while high knee lifts, Abe Vogoda (slow at request of Zena mumble chatter), Grass Pickers, merkins hold at bottom.

Thang

The goal is to complete a workout routine for each letter of SEEK.

S – Supper 21’s 

20 merkins  followed by 1 big boy sit-up = 21,

19 merkins followed by 2 big boy sit-ups – 21

keep decreasing merkins to 1 and increasing sit-ups by 1.

234 merkins and ab exercises by the end of workout.   Added some variety to ab work with Freddie Mercury, American Hammers, Leg Raises, and Flutters.

rinse with 2 laps around the parking lot.

E – Escalator 

10 – Jump-Ups

20 – Burpees

30 – Human Chairs / Wall Sits.  Alternating 6 and 33 second counts across pax.

40 – Deep wide squats

50 – Lunge walks across parking lot.

Two laps rinse

CoT

Prayed for Beaker’s daughter in law who’s expecting his a baby as well as my wife Betsy. Thank God he answered my prayer as I was seeking for Q’s.  Beaker  on 12/13, Long Haul 12/20, and Zena 12/27.   Seek and you will find!  Don’t stop seeking and asking!

 

 

 

It will take more than 102 BURPEES to STRENGTHEN you

It was a balmy 35 degrees with a 11 mph wind so in other words it was better than cold.  In the cool of the morning it is easy to stay in the fartsack where it’s warm, nobody knows your name, and your weakness matters not.  The sun will rise or the rain will come down on the day.  Regardless every man requires STRENGTH to meet the day and all the challenges known and unknown.  Eventually we all face situations where we need STRENGTH beyond ourselves.  Yes,  said STRENGTH is available for those who believe and aren’t afraid to call on the name of the Lord.  This workout was designed to remind us where we can get this kind of strength 24/7, 365.  We look to Philippians 4-13:  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  May this workout be a reminder and inspiration towards the STRENGTH that abides within our souls.

Warmarama

P&P –  Thank God we have a choice to become better today than yesterday and we are surrounded by a group of High Impact Men who encourage us to go for it.  Thank you Beaker for your inspiration  to include scripture into our workouts.

The Devil made me do it.

Today’s lesson, gents, is don’t plan an outdoor workout with the expectation that Pennsyl-tuckey won’t drop 6 inches of snow on your workout space 3 days prior leaving you with a slushy instead of concrete.

The path to hell is paved with good intentions and usually starts with some rock music so we did as well.

Thunderstruck Merkins:

Using my crappy car stereo we played Thunderstruck by AC/DC holding plank until each time the word thunder was heard. At each thunder we went down for a merkin.

Downward trend continues with Indian run to the pavilion with sound off count 13 people’s chair for respite.

13 Low and slow Merkins.

Superman hold for sound off count 13

13 Dive bombers

Another round of people’ chair for respite, followed by sound off count 13 low plank hold.

Bear crawl from pavilion to next one with 6 low squats. Rinse and repeat 6 times.

Next was Duck walk to the pavilion with 6 WWII’s. Rinse and repeat 6 times.

You get the point so we continued with crab walk/Carolina dry docks, horse walk/Freddy Mercury, bunny hop/wide Merkins, and finished with the beast of beasts Tim Tebows/burpees.

Slog back to the cars.
