The mission of F3 is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.
Introduction: This was YHC’s 5th Q of the month and had kinda run out of ideas. So, YHC spent some time in the F3 Lexicon and found sufficient pain for the PAX. We ended up with a Q back bone based on a Dora 1-2-3, which includes a run. Unfortunately that run included a hill which the PAXquickly grew to hate.
Side note: Other AOs will do Dora workouts. The Magnitude Pax finds that cute. At Magnitude we do Ruck Dora, which will either break you or create men!

Devo: Clear Vision – Play the Man by Mark Batterson
“Since the days of John the Baptist, the kingdom of heaven has been advancing with force. And forceful people are taking hold of it.” Matthew 11:12 NIRV
I don’t know what version of the Bible you’re using to read today’s Scripture verse, but mine says that “violent men” take the kingdom of heaven “by force.” What a bold description! The first-century church had issues, just like the church does today, but they were full steam ahead. They had a clear picture of what they wanted—God’s reign—and they went after it.
The sixth virtue of manhood is a clear vision.
Men need something to fight for, something to fight against. It’s how we survive the storms that are bound to batter us now and then. Without a vision, a man will waste his life. But with a clear vision, he’s a force to be reckoned with.
Do you have a mission statement for your life?
What about a vision statement for your marriage?
How about core values for your family?
Or what about life goals or a life plan?
You can’t play the man without a vision any more than you can play piano without a piano or play football without a football.
I love the classic scene from The Blues Brothers when Elwood Blues announces: “We’re on a mission from God.” It’s a mission from God that keeps us on the straight and narrow. When we are busy with the Father’s business, we can’t be sidetracked. A mission from God not only motivates us to do the right thing, but it also demotivates us from doing the wrong thing.
If you aren’t on a mission from God, you aren’t really living—you’re dying. You aren’t just wasting your God-given potential, you’re wasting space. You’re dead weight.
You need a vision for a mission. Ask God to give it to you. Pray, fast, study—whatever it takes, don’t stop until you have your vision. Then write it down and never forget it or stop pursuing it with all the “violence” of your God-given determination.
What is your purpose for the remaining years God will give you on this earth?
Moleskin: It is always refreshing to see new blood show up at Magnitude. Today we had Hard Drive join us for his first ruck BC. YHC nonchalantly noted as part of the disclaimer that exercises are significantly different with a ruck. YHC and the normal Magnitude PAX do ruck BCs on a weekly basis and it’s easy to forget that. Needless to say, Hard Drive found the secret sauce of a ruck workout during the 100 merkin count of Dora and noted the increased level of difficulty. Cranking out 40 ruck merkins makes cranking out 60 merkins sans ruck a breeze.
YHC encourages the broader PAX to pick up a ruck when you find they’re not being challenged at a BC. There are loaners available. Come join a ruck AO and find a whole new level of beatdown. YHC guarantees you won’t look at the excercises the same way, and maybe look at yourself differently as well.
Come get some at Magnitude.
