Bump n run on hump day

THE SCENE: 22 degrees and clear

jog across the parking lot x 2, High knee skip x2, but kiss x2, monkey humpers x15 IC, Bac forward and reverse x 10 IC, 7’s at baby hill but more like 4’s…Monkey humpers at the bottom and burpess at the top. I wanted to get into the thang so I cut it short but it was a thigh burner as we Bernie sanders up the hill between exercises.

Bump n Run

  • number off and split into 3 groups
  • Group 1 started at Hairburner station. with each group, pax partnered up in 3s. one pax is pushing a plate across the parking lot to the other side. once they get to the other side, pax that is on that side pushes the plate back across to the 3rd pax. Whille the plate is being pushed back and forth, one side the pax is doing HR merkins and the other side is doing monkey humpers. Go back and forth like a relay until Group 3 bumps you
  • Group 2 is at the pavalon doing 10 box jumps and 10 bench pull ups, AMRAP until group 1 bumps them to the next station
  • Group 3 or the 3rd station is ABS. 10 LBC on the 4 ct IC and 10 Flutters on the 4ct IC. This is the station that sets the pace or the duration of each station. When they get get done, they run over to relieve the group at the next station, thus bumpin them off and sending them to the next station to bump that group.
  • We got in about 3 rounds

F3 is about making us as men better in all facets but we cant do it alone:

Ecclessiastes 4:9-1

Two are better than one, because they had a good reward for their labor. For if they fail, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth, and hath not another to lift him up.

Insert any personal comments, notes, devotion content, etc.

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”  Calvin Coolidge

Monday’s Rock

THE SCENE: The gloom was in full effect – not too cold, not too hot, just right.

  • Welcome to F3: Fitness, Fellowship, & Faith. My name is Steam and I’ll be your Q this morning
  • I am not a professional – you are here on your own volition – which means I don’t know any injuries you may or may not have. So if you need to modify any of the exercises we do this morning – do it.

    • Q said mini-BOM: You can’t see it now but there are beautiful mountains in view and the river and the park when it is clear. But the gloom is preventing you to see this right now. Take this metaphor into your life. Do you trust Him that they’ll still be there when the gloom clears in your life? Even though you can’t physically see it right now, it’s there, more importantly, HE is there, do you trust that this week?

Heavy breathing
43 HIM came out and crushed the Monday gloom (2 FNGs included)
1) Know that you are fully equipped and capable of whatever mission the Lord tasks you with this week. Know your mission and that where he sends you this week, there you’ll be.

2) Don’t be afraid to Wagon-Wheel this week. I’m not good at it. My pride gets in the way. A key component of wagon-wheeling is dying to yourself and your own ambitions or work so that you can go back and bring those falling behind out of the gloom. Don’ the afraid to wagon-wheel this week – to be that voice of encouragement that circles back around to speak life into those that may have/are falling behind or that you’ve noticed need to be encouraged. When people see the F3 logo – that means something. The commitment to pursuing the Lord as HIM, as well as to each other is vital to the nature of F3.
G-6 gave me encouragement this morning before things got kicked off – I always get nervous about my BOM because I don’t want to word vomit or get in my own way of sharing what God’s put on my heart/letting my words be far and His words be here & clear. G-6 gave me encouragement that went something like: God will put on your heart what he wants you to say/communicate when the time comes. That is important. And meant a lot. Because that means that we don’t have to worry or stress about saying the right thing or focus on how we sound – God’s got it already taken care of and He will put on our hearts what he wants us to say. A prayer I’ve been working on (and off unfortunately) for some time has gone something like this and when I remember to say it – man it hits home.

Lord, give me eyes to see like you, ears to hear your truth, lips to speak life, hands and feet to go and serve where you call me, and a heart to love like you.

Kinda just puts it in perspective of how much we need God to come into our everyday being and let the Holy Spirit allow us to be purpose-driven High Impact Men in everything we say and do.

Prayer Request from G-6: Lunch $’s (Jay Cobble) father died last night – keep their family in your prayers please.
