Junk delivered a great message that can be found here: https://www.f3knoxville.com/not-my-timing-but-yours/

Also, walked us through the importance of the BOM for our PAX. How the BOM is one of the biggest parts of F3 and shouldn’t be glossed over.
MOLESKIN:
Great turnout on a cold snowy day. We met at the Pav-A-Lon and had coffee brewing for coffeeteria at the end of the workout. Hardbody really brought donuts!!! Hopefully we demystified the Q and we’ll see a couple of guys jump on rotation.

Talked about the Iron Cowboy, he ran 50 Iron Man Triathlons, in 50 Days, in 50 states. Biggest take away is what’s hard for me is hard for me and what’s hard for you is hard for you. He told this to a fan who was in awe of his accomplishment.

WARM-O-RAMA:

  • SSH IC x 20

THA-THANG:
I lost a bet to Mayberry and the wager was a $5 box from Taco Bell. So I thought it would be fun to work off those calories as a PAX. After extensive research on how many calories we really burn during exercise – it’s not that many. So we had to partner up to burn those total calories. A $5 box includes two Tacos and a Cheddar Cheese Chalupa.

  • 1st Taco – 170 calories
  • Dora 1, 2, 3 across the short side of the hockey rink
  • Toasted Cheddar Chalupa – 450 calories
  • 20 Burpees – run a lap around the track
  • Rinse and Repeat x3
  • 2nd Taco – Tabata Taco
  • 20 second Air Squat
  • 10 second rest
  • 45 second CMU Swing
  • 10 second rest
  • 20 second Merlin
  • 10 second rest
  • 45 second Thrusters
  • Rinse and repeat x 3
  • While listening to Kenny’s Greatest Hits!

Today we read some excerpts from the Q Source about our choice to take the Daily Red Pill and commit to being a Pro! Then asked ourselves – what would it look like if I were completely sold out for F3?

DRP (Q1.1)

MOLESKIN:

I had to bust out my Jocko voice to get the men moving, apparently I was struggling with giving good direction today. Wagon Wheel brought the FNG “ExciteBike”, Aladdin said he was invigorated and nobody wanted to eat Tacos today… It is strange that we had a Taco Bell themed workout and Swirlie was nowhere to be seen. Hope he’s okay.

This workout is to honor Navy Seal Chris Kyle – 3 Rounds is to remember his M & 2–2.0’s, 4 moves to honor his 4 tours in Iraq and 160 total reps per round for his 160 confirmed kills.

  • 3 Rounds
  • 40 KB Swings (CMU)
  • 40 Box Jumps
  • 40 Thrusters (CMU)
  • 40 Decline Merkins

This was a torcher and went relatively fast. So, to cash out:

  • 20,20,20 CMU Merkins, CMU Am Hammers, 4 ct Mountain Climbers

We are the 3 best friends that anyone could have

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Christopher Scott “Chris” Kyle (April 8, 1974 − February 2, 2013) was a United States Navy SEAL and the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. Kyle served four tours in the Iraq War and was awarded several commendations for acts of heroism and meritorious service in combat. He received two Silver Star Medals, five Bronze Star Medals, one Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals and numerous other unit and personal awards. Kyle was honorably discharged from the U.S. Navy in 2009 and published his bestselling autobiography, American Sniper, in 2012. An eponymous film adaptation of Kyle’s book, directed by Clint Eastwood, was released two years later. Chris was a devoted son, brother, husband and father in North Texas, as well as continuing his efforts to helping Veterans re-acclimate to civilian life and combat stress carried home. Kyle was shot dead at a shooting range near Chalk Mountain, Texas. His friend, Chad Littlefield, age 35, was also killed.

The three rounds represent his wife and two children left behind. The 4 movements represent Chris’s 4 tours in Iraq. The total reps for each round equaling to 160 repetitions represent his total confirmed kills.

MOLESKIN:
The workout was short and sweet. Pretty sure the guy in the van may be living there in the parking lot. We had to do the BOM up front so the Q could get out of there and participate in “Walk to School” day.
