Four cones were set up in a rectangle across the grinder. Each person started at a different cone and did the first exercise there. Then they moved clockwise to the next cone by either bear crawling (shorter side of the rectangle) or doing a defensive slide (longer side of the rectangle). They then did the first exercise at the next cone and so on until they finished the first exercise at all four cones. Each time we completed four exercises, we ran up the troll bridge and did 10 bodybuilders before going back and moving on to the next set of exercises.

Exercises at each cone:
Cone #1

    • Goblet Squats – 20
    • Overhead CMU Lunges – 20 each leg
    • One Leg Deadlifts – 20 each leg
    • Step Ups – 20 each leg

Matthew 7:13-14 says “Enter by the narrow gate, since the road that leads to destruction is wide and spacious, and many take it, but it is a narrow gate and a hard road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”

I feel like this verse is applicable to anything we do in life. As F3 men, we walk a narrow road each day when we decide to wake up early and workout. We have to strive to take the narrow path in each and everything we do. Comfort and ease are the barriers to happiness and success.
