Flutter kicks x32 and a sad attempt at Marge Simpsons. LBCs for a minute

12 in the PAX today
Be friendly. Wave at people. Smile at people. Give complements to people. Make someone feel special.
So it was interesting that the BOM was about being friendly to people today. As I was setting up the work out, I was approached by a gentleman who jumped out of his car and raised his voice at me and said “what are you doing?” I told him that I’m part of a workout group and that I’m just setting up some cones to run between. He said “i figured you were part of that workout group. I’ve told you guys not to come up here.” He was very aggressive in his tone. My reply was very calm and apologetic. Although he started off very direct and pretty much rude, I kept my cool and was nothing but nice and agreeable with him. He has worked at the tavern for 20 years and doesn’t want anyone getting hurt on their property. I told him I can understand that and that we wouldn’t do exercises in the upper parking lot anymore. I was able to let him give us permission to run up the hill and through the property just not do exercises on the property. By the end of our conversation he was somewhat calm, but I wonder how the conversation would have gone if he didn’t start off so aggressive. I think we need to give people the benefit of the doubt that they are doing something good and not something bad. In his case I don’t think he thought I was doing anything bad as he knew I was part of the workout group, but I think he just wanted to show his chest and let me know who was in charge. I did However did forget to ask him if he would like to join us. If I see him again I certainly will.
I forgot to mention this, but we have a charity kickball tournament on May 15 I would love to see an F3 team or two.

Wallball returns!!!

THE SCENE: A nice spring morning, 50’s, not raining, EXCELLENT

20 merkins, 20 squats

COUPONS: 5 – 60 # sandbags, 1 – 90# sandbag, 2 lengths of rope or straps

Ruck with ALL coupons the long way around to Watt Rd. field.

Segment 1 – AO to first right turn on path.  Start with 20 merkins & 20 sandbag squats at AO; Shoulder carry sandbag to Segment 2 at right turn on Path

Segment 2 – 20 merkins & 20 sandbag squats; Front carry sandbag to segment 3 at corner of bathroom

Segment 3 – 20 merkins & 20 sandbag squats; farmer carry sandbag switching hands as needed to Watt Rd. field

At Watt Rd. Field – Sandbag Toss

Drop all coupons and rucks at the end line and get a battle buddy with 1 – 60# sandbag.

Round 1 – Battle Buddy 1 starts tossing the 60# sandbag down the field.  Battle Buddy 2 – runs a lap around the field (no ruck) when his lap takes him to the coupon pile, do 20 ruck curls then catch up to BB 1 and switch.  BB 2 begins his run at the switch, makes his lap, does his curls and catches up to BB 1.  Continue tossing sandbag the length of the field and back.

Audibled to running half laps of the field cause the tossing went too fast.

Round 2 – Rucks on.  Battle Buddy 1 sandbag tosses down the field.  Battle Buddy 2 does 10 ruck merkins, then bear crawl (ruck on) to catch BB 1.  Battle Buddy 2 starts tossing the sandbag while BB 1 does 10 ruck merkins, then bear crawls to catch up.  Repeat the switching and tossing until you go down the field and back.

If there is an odd # of PAX then the odd man can join a team or he can toss the sandbag 10 times, then do the exercise and continue tossing.


DORA’s – get a battle buddy.  Each team needs 2- 60# sandbags and a strap or rope.  Clip the 2 sandbags together and clip a rope to them for a pain train Dora.

BB 1 runs to end of strap, sits down and pulls the sandbags to him.  (think seated rows).  Complete 2 lengths of strap and run back to start and BB 2.

BB 2 completes the exercises until BB 1 returns.  Then they switch positions. Continue until all reps are completed.  No ruck required if running to the sandbags.

Cumulative counting for the exercises.  The exercises are:

  • 100 Lion kings – ruck or sandbag
  • 200 ruck curls
  • 300 ruck swings

If there is an odd # of PAX then the odd man can join a team or he can do the sandbag rope pulls, run back to start and do the exercises and switch when he sees fit.  Cut all reps in half.

Be flexible and accommodating. We have to be ready and willing to adapt and change while standing firm in our faith. Christ and the disciples were always witnessing to diverse crowds. We are no different. We have to be willing to meet people where they are and change accordingly to maximize our effectiveness. Take today for example, we modified the Q and location to make sure we could include a PAX that was unable to post otherwise. Don’t be rigid and unmoving. Be flexible. Be accommodating. Meet people where they are. Share His love and joy.
