The mission of F3 is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.
Conditions: Low 50s and a bit nippy…

COP: SSH (IC) x20, TTT (IC) x10, Don Quixotes (IC) x15, short jog around the building to the block pile.
YHC had set up a newly created Pole of Pain (PoP). The pole had weinkes stapled to it; exercises on one side and the number of reps on the other. Some had the the number showing and some had the exercises going. Pax split into 2 teams to “compete” against each other. A Pax from each team would run to the PoP, pull off one of the weinkes, return to his team and complete the exercise. Some of the weinkes were misleading, like 50 was showing, but the exercise was eye blinks, or 1 showing, but it was one lap around the building… this made the Pax choose carefully and quickly to pick what they thought was the best option. The pole was cleared quickly and YHC swapped the spent weinkes to the opposite teams and completed a few more rounds until time was called.

Devo: YHC had been dealing with “motives” lately. Due to his family situation, he has been told that he is selfish and it has made him question his motives. We take the word motives as a negative thing, but saying that someone has a motive does not mean that it is selfish. We should have good motives to do what is right, or because we care about how it will impact someone else. YHC has realized that he can stress about his motive for doing things and miss opportunities. We must simply stay in tune with God and do as we feel led, believing that our feelings are being led by God. Sometimes we will do something out of selfish motives, but we are all human.
Moleskin: Pax seemed to like Olaf’s Pole of Pain better than his Can of Weinkes. 48 exercises was not enough for the 40-45 minutes so will need to have 50+ for next time…
