THA-THANG:
Grab something heavy and begin a slow mosey.  Weights consisted of Ratchet’s gas cans, several kettlebells, 30, 25, 20 lb dumbbells, and the golden cmu.  We moseyed for about 100-150 yards at a time around the park, stopping for 25 reps of the following exercises.

  • Burpees
  • Nose wipers
  • Squats
  • Gas pumpers
  • Curls
  • Dry Docks

Once we reached the paved hill by the bathrooms.  11’s….sort of.  We started out doing 11’s but then the QIC changed it to just 10 reps at the top and 10 reps at the bottom each time.  Merkins at the top, Squats at the bottom.   Each trip up the hill the PAX carried all the weight and were allowed to leave the lightest weight at the top of the hill.  We were done once we’d worked our way down to just a single 87lb gas can.   Probably 10 or 11 trips up and down the hill with the weight.

Mosey back to the AO with the weight.  Stop along the way for sets of 25 of the following:

  • Dips
  • American Hammers
  • Burpees

MARY:

  • Star Crunch x 10 IC

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

I was recently accepted into medical school. I have mixed feelings about it. On one hand it is a wonderful opportunity that I have worked very hard to attain, but also a whole slew of new doors and responsibilities await me. It is ironic that I have a certain place to go, yet I feel more uncertain now that I am accepted. With all that being said, it is time for me to go out into the world. There are times in life where opportunities arise and you must take the decisive step to take advantage of the opportunity. That means putting some of the uncertainty on hold and accepting it. It is a sort of leap of faith I suppose.

I know we all have done this after all. We all came out to our first F3 workout not knowing what to expect. Look at us now. 🙂
MOLESKIN:
Toto mentioned during the COT that now is the time to reach out to our brothers. The holiday season can be the best of times and also the worst. Take the initiative and reach out!!!

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
II Timothy 1:7 – This is my Father’s favorite verse, and I had not really connected with it. I never felt that I approached life with timidity or fear. I termed it as humility. But, there is a fine line between timidity and humility.  To my shame, I have been doing F3 for a year and a half, and this is my VQ.  To be a real HIM, we need to approach life boldly. We need to lead when we are called to lead and not be timid. We also need to remember that God gives us power, but also love and self discipline.
