B.O.M.B.S. OVER JUCO

THE SCENE: Low 40’s and gloomy – perfect weather to continually cut the wrong wire and set off a bunch of B.O.M.B.S. – No man was left the same this morning.
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
WARM-O-RAMA:

Cherry Pickers, Tennessee Rocking Chair, SSHs, Tempo Squats
THA-THANG:

  1. Mosey to Parking Lot – Route 66 style grinder: At each Pole (6 total) perform exercises.  First 3 poles – 15 Merkins, 15 Plank Jacks, 15 4ct Mountain Climbers.  Second 3 poles – 10 Merkins, 10 Plank Jacks, 15 Bobby Hurley’s.
  2. Mosey to the JUCO Gym (Coupon Pile behind creepy loading dock) and battle-buddy up.  Perform B.O.M.B.S. workout – each team performs 100 Burpees, 150 Overhead Tri-Extensions, 200 Merkins, 250 BBSs, 300 Squats.  While one partner is doing exercise, other performs weighted run up and around concrete border wall WITH a coupon.  Had to modify a tad because of time.  Most teams made it about halfway thru the BBSs before we trimmed the numbers down to 100 reps for each exercise.  No one made it to squats, so when everyone thought we were done – PAX did 50 squats in civilian cadence.
  3. Mosey back to AO, JAILBREAK for the last 150 yards of so.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
1) Be thankful to the Lord for what he has blessed you with.  2) Concentrate this week on turning from your own interests and paying attention to those people in your inner circle and their happiness, specifically, what you can do for them that might not only increase their joy, but might open doors to sharing the Gospel.  “The noblest art is that of making others happy.” – P.T. Barnum

MOLESKIN:
Bartman had a house full of young men over the weekend and 5 of them accepted Christ (after a full blown background investigation and polygraph by Bartman).  Now THAT is something to be joyful about!

Kudos to Waxjob for attending the Full Smokey Pre-Ruck.  We need more of you motherruckers to step out of your comfort zone and hike the tallest point in Florida every M-W-F,  wheels up from AO @0440hrs – contact Judge Judy with questions.

10 took JUCOmanjaro twice today!
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
It is difficult hearing your 2 year old telling you “no” to a hug or a kiss.  I think the reason she says this is because she doesn’t see me as much or spend time with me as much as her mother.  Kids do tend to have there preferences as to which parent they want around them most.  This reminds me that spending time with family is important.  Make sure to make your family a higher priority than yourself.  Developing close relationships always takes time.
MOLESKIN:
Kudos to Judge Judy for the solo pre-ruck.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
This last week I was out of town for work for the first time since my daughter was born and left my wife to fend for herself with the two kids. It was nice getting a small break from the chaos of having two little ones, but I quickly found myself missing the whole crew. It was a good reminder to cherish the time we get with our loved ones. It’s easy to come home from work exhausted and neglect family time, but as High Impact Men, we need to make an effort to fully utilize this time to encourage and uplift our families. 

MOLESKIN:
Shoutout to Bagger for pre-rucking solo. I fartsacked and paid the price with my shame. Bagger’s last workout before moving to Atlanta is this coming Monday. Let’s make sure to send him off right!

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Bring books for the Wesley House next week.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

1 John 4:18 – There is no fear in love.  But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment.  The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

Today will most likely be the final time I Q in F3 Knoxville.  This week, my wife and I will be moving to the Atlanta Metro area to start a new chapter in our lives.  As the verse says above, we do not fear this change and are looking forward to it because everything has worked out how it was meant to.  The process for us to get to this point our lives has been very frustrating and stressful at times.  However, if things hadn’t worked out the way they did, I would have never been exposed to F3 and had the opportunity to meet and get better with all of you over the last few months.  For that, I am extremely grateful and consider myself lucky to have had that opportunity.

MOLESKIN:

Bonus points to Judge Judy and Spotter for joining me on the preruck!  I encourage some new people to give the preruck a shot.
