Introduction: Disclaimer – F3 is always outdoors, rotationally led, men only, ends with a circle of trust, and each man is responsible for his own workout, so the exercises may be modified as needed.
Warm-O-Rama: Modified shuttle with jogging, high knees, butt-kickers, “open/close the gate” side shuffle, carioca, bending, jumping and backwards jogging and sprinting. PAX then moseyed to park outbuilding for two sets of descending planks held for a 10 count. BTTW sets were interrupted by the most ridiculous Indian run ever. PAX performed a line of inch worm exercises while the Six duck-walked to the front. It quacked me up ( I should have shot a video).
This was followed by exercises in cadence including: Abe Vigodas, side straddle hops, seal jacks, American hammers, plank punches, mountain climbers, Peter Parkers, cobra, superman stretch, and some crazy back-twisting yoga pose that defied the laws of physics.
The Thang: “Treasure Hunt” Q referenced Matt 6:19-21, “. . . where your treasure is there your heart will be also.” Q encouraged PAX to add some treasure to their chests, literally and figuratively by exercising and memorizing the inspirational/ motivational quotes found in the treasure chest at one end of the field. Much to the chagrin of the passing train that attempted to obfuscate all instructions, Q explained the cross-field partner exercises which were also printed on folding chairs at each end of the field. Cross-field exercises one way included: bear crawl, crab walk, hopping, lunges, backward jogging, imperial walkers, and Frankensteins. Opposite cross-field exercise was 30-30-30, ie. jogging, running, sprinting. Exercises at the opposite end of the field from the treasure chest were Burpees, Merkins, LBC’s, star jacks, reverse crunches, and squats.
PAX then moseyed back to shovel flag for CoT.
CoT: count-o-rama, name-o-rama, naming of FNG, announcements and prayer requests.
Chicken Wisdom: “A truly rich man is one whose children runs into his arms when his hands are empty.” “Life is about impact, not income.” “Most men are not living their dreams because they are living their fears.” “If you want to build yourself up, build somebody else up first.” “You cannot cross an ocean without first losing sight of the shore.” “The two most important days of your life are the day you were born and the day you figure out why.” “The will to act is primary, the rest is mere tenacity.” “There are no traffic jams along the extra mile.” “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” Joshua 1:9, Hebrews 12:1, Philippians 4:13, and Isaiah 40:31.
