The mission of F3 is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.
Introduction: YHC got a chance to redeem himself with a redemption Q and approaches the winkie with a single focus of a grinding PT session. It was kinda refreshing to do a no frills boot camp that just required work and going until there was no more go.
Conditions: 43F and Freakin Perfect
20 SSH IC, 15 TTT IC, 15 LBACs forward and back IC
THE BURPEE CHALLENGE: start with 1 min on the clock-start with 7 burpees. with 1st minute is over, do 8 burpees, when that minute is over, do 9 burpees so on and so forth. As PAX dropped out that is how they got their partners for the Thang. Saget won this one and YHC conceded (only got second because burpee machines BCG and TKO were not there!)
Now the PAX are ready to get to the Thang! PAX were instructed to mosey to block pile, grab a block, and mosey over to field. Leave blocks near outside cones.
The starfish and it goes like this: Five cones, one in the middle, and the other four approx. 25 meters from center cone in a square. All PAX started in the middle at the center cone and were given instructions: The middle cone starts with one merkin, and PAX had choice on which cone to go to next, which included blockees, squats with a block, 4 count flutter kicks with block, and Carolina dry docks (shmerkins). Whatever cone PAX went to after middle cone was 2; ex. 2 blockees. go back to middle cone for 3 merkins and so on until merkins in the middle equaled 25. PAX had to bear crawl from the merkins to the outer cones; however, they were able to run back to the merkins.
Mary: No time
Numberama, Namerama, Pledge and COT
Announcements: Mud Run
Name FNG: Betty Ford
Devo: Do something fun with your wives! YHC explained how men’s hike helped him to refresh and recharge love for wife and how their time was mostly spent doing things that pleased him. YHC made it a point to step way outside comfort zone and allow wife to pick anything for date night and not ask any questions or groan about it. YHC’s wife chose Velocity Airsports (trampolines) for date night and it was awesome. YHC told PAX how happy his wife was and the joy in her eyes just was unbelievable and YHC was almost brought to tears because that joy hasn’t been seen in a long time. YHC talked about doing stuff with your wife like that is so valuable and important to your relationship and you grow by getting uncomfortable and doing things for others.
Ephesians 5:25 and 5:28- Husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife, loves himself.
Moleskin: SO…how did Betty Ford get his name? There was a ton of mumble chatter on FB concerning just how the FNG got his name. Here’s the scoop: When he was brought out to the middle of the COT, FNG would not divulge any information about what he didn’t like because he was told ahead of time the process. Then someone who knew FNG stated he did not like Fords so there’s where the fire got lit. Snowden went immediately to Gerald, which Humpday thought was hilarious, and then Humpday asked, “wait, what’s Gerald ford’s wife’s name?” Betty Ford was mentioned and there you have it. Betty ford stuck and all the PAX were in agreement. I’m pretty sure Snowden also suggested Carl as well as some other former political figure whose name escapes me. This was a fun naming experience for sure. Welcome Betty Ford
