It Always Rains When I Q

THE SCENE:  The overnight rain turned to a drizzle and dissipated at 0525 leaving behind damp grass, hostile puddles, and a silent avenue of approach for potential enemies wanting to ambush us in the dark. What was a bustling election day parking lot on Tuesday had turned into a silent concrete slab awaiting the soft touch of gloves belonging to men who had come to do work. Also, Speedy forgot bananas.
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER: 5 PAX were welcomed and disclaimed. Bandwagon showed up at 0540 and was given the disclaimer. Proclaimed the mission of F3, what the 3 F’s are, and the 5 components of each workout.


WARM-O-RAMA:

15 Overhead Arm Claps, 15 Arm Circles, 11 Daisy Pickers, 15 Imperial Walkers, 15 Squats, and a Mosey.

THA-THANG:

PAX paired off. One PAX would run approximately 200 meters out and back while the other PAX performed the exercises below. Once the runner returned, he would pick up from where his partner finished until all reps were completed. The first pair to finish helped the second pair to complete the last of their reps making the Monkey Humpers a little more tolerable. Original plan was to do 250 BBS, 200 Merkins, and 150 Monkey Humpers, but had to be adjusted.

  • 150 Carolina Dry Docks
  • 200 Squats
  • 150 Big Boy Sit-ups
  • 100 Merkins
  • 50 Monkey Humpers

Mosey to pavilion

25 “Inverkins” (that’s what I’m calling it, at least). PAX laid under a picnic table and pulled their chests up to the bottom side of the picnic table while their feet remained on the ground. It looked like an Up-Side-Down or Inverted Merkin.

MARY:
No MARY as sit-ups were part of the main workout.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
DRP = Daily Red Pill = A HIM’s deliberate daily commitment to accelerate his fitness, fellowship, and faith.

The older and more “routined” we become, the easier it is to coast on “auto-pilot.” YHC is reminded more and more that in order to grow and be the best version of myself for others, I must not rest on laurels of the past or think that my desired future will be carried on the wings of osmosis. I must be deliberate and do the hard thing to accelerate. Every. Day.

MOLESKIN:

  • Speedy really doesn’t like the cold … but he furnished a A+ coffee/bananateria as usual! #AOQoftheyear
  • Poor Barney is stuck with an undersized Levee shirt–Under Armor apparently “Grinched” their Large by making it equivalent to a boy’s medium.
  • Boba Fett is a huge encouragement — he’s out there every time the dirty dova doors are open.
  • Grimace is another Annex pillar — he goes all out and he is super fit! Glad he’s on our team for AOlympics!

CIRCLE OF PAIN:

FOLLOW ME

THA-THANG:    YHC led PAX on the Side Straddle Hop Mile of Pain

*PART 1:

Every park bench signaled the PAX would wait for the 6 then perform SSH x 26 IC then resume SSHMoP

*PART 2:

PAX assembled in a circle.  YHC would flip a quarter.  Heads=25 Merkins and Tails=25 reps of a designated exercise.  The way that worked, if it landed on Tails then PAX, in a clockwise rotation, would pull out a Jenga piece with an Exercise written on it then Q the exercise.

Tails turnt up as follows:

  1. LBC=Lil’ Baby Crunches
  2. CDD=Carolina Dry Docks
  3. A-L=Alternating Lunge in Place
  4. HK=High Knees
  5. TM=Tempo Merkins

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

BLINDSIDED.  The PAX didn’t see this coming.  The Circle of Pain (Warm-O-Rama) was the SSHMoPain.  Mixed in with other shenanigans.  Much like the lives we lead as men these days.  Going along then get blindsided by the unexpected.  We are often unprepared for the unexpected.  Regardless, we must adapt and overcome while putting forth our best effort.  God will handle the rest.

THE MAN IN THE ARENA by Theodore ” O Positive” Roosevelt

“IT IS NOT THE CRITIC WHO COUNTS; NOT THE MAN WHO POINTS OUT HOW THE STRONG MAN STUMBLES, OR WHERE THE DOER OF DEEDS COULD HAVE DONE THEM BETTER.  THE CREDIT BELONGS TO THE MAN WHO IS ACTUALLY IN THE ARENA *gloom*, WHOSE FACE IS MARRED BY DUST AND SWEAT AND BLOOD; WHO STRIVES VALIANTLY; WHO ERRS, WHO COMES SHORT AGAIN AND AGAIN, BECAUSE THERE IS NO EFFORT WITHOUT ERROR AND SHORTCOMING; BUT WHO DOES ACTUALLY STRIVE TO DO THE DEEDS; WHO KNOWS GREAT ENTHUSIASMS, THE GREAT DEVOTIONS; WHO SPENDS HIMSELF IN A WORTHY CAUSE; WHO AT THE BEST KNOWS IN THE END THE TRIUMPH OF HIGH ACHIEVEMENT, AND WHO AT THE WORST, IF HE FAILS, AT LEAST FAILS WHILE DARING GREATLY, SO THAT HIS PLACE SHALL NEVER BE WITH THOSE COLD AND TIMID *fart-sacking* SOULS WHO NEITHER KNOW VICTORY NOR DEFEAT.”

YHC leaves this here as a reminder on why we do what we do and the impact our actions have on our lives and the lives of those we hold dear:

Men should do hard things.

Together.

But, let’s face it-more often than not we don’t.

Men, with exception-albeit rarely-lack consistent fitness, meaningful male friendships and a defined purpose in our lives.

And we get hammered with life’s ups and downs and become complacent or just give up. We stop leading. We start thinking it’s just not worth the effort anymore. A hard truth is that an isolated man is a dangerous man-to himself, his family and to his community.

But we have 2 choices: Become the status quo or become High Impact Men (HIM).

So, let’s dig deeper into that. When men become the status quo-we become ineffective leading ourselves, our families and ultimately, our communities.

But for those who disrupt the status quo, what we call High Impact Men (HIM) become the strong anchors that our families and communities need.

So, where can men turn these days?

Take F3 Memphis and this event, GrowRuck 12 Memphis as good examples.

With a proven track record of getting over 20,000 men across 20 states to step up into leadership roles, F3 Nation gives men a clear action plan to better themselves, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Free work-outs are provided. Open to all men. Held outdoor-rain or shine, heat or cold. Peer-led. Always ending in a circle of trust.

But what makes it effective and transformational is that F3 delivers on its promises by being accessible, providing men the opportunity to lead and fail in a safe place with no judgment, pushing men to their limits while encouraging them to modify as needed, providing an opportunity to build a healthy community to develop genuine friendships with other men, all while respecting one another for our similarities and our differences.

And the end result is evidenced by the men who commit to the process, core principles and come prepared to do the work.

Their lives will reflect healthier bodies (inside/out), more meaningful male friendships and a defined life’s purpose.

And for that we can all celebrate.

Shared pain builds trust. Well done men for putting in the work this weekend.

Well done.

Special thanks to 
David Redding , Co-Founder of F3 , John Lambert , Seth Brown and the 2 Cadres , Cadre Daniel (F3:Linus) and Cadre Kevin who invested into these men this weekend.

THE SCENE: The 46 degree ruck temp turned into a pleasant 50 something that did not chill our lungs.

F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER:      Is anyone ever annoyed by having to turn off the bold and underline formatting when filing in this section?  Any suggestions on how to ‘disrupt’ the status quo and streamline?  (with all do respect to the HIM who created this)

Disclaimer given, along with the three F’s and the core principle.

WARM-O-RAMA:

SSH IC X 27, IW IC X 28, Daisy Picker IC X 27, Balls to the Wall at the Event Center for 30 seconds (right in the switch grass and mulch)

THA-THANG:

  • PAX organized into two equal groups (group 1 and group 2) for corner relay races.
  • Mosey over to the far corner of the parking lot and paired a 1 with a 2, a total of 5 pairs. Each pair went to a corner of the parking lot, the fifth pair stayed at the start with the first pair.  Thank you Pirtle for correctly pointing out that we needed this doubling up at the start so that no corner was left vacant once we got going.
  • PAX were given exercises to complete at each corner starting with Merkins, Squats, Burpees, and Carolina Dry Dock.  (C-Lo or Nature Boy kindly grabbed chalk and wrote these on the pavement during the circuit)
  • The relay race started with all PAX completing the exercise at their given corner followed by pair 1 sprinting all out to the next corner of the rectangular space.
  • Pair 2 took off when their group partner tagged them and when they had completed the given exercise at their station.
  • The relay race proceeded until Pair 1 had gone all around the ‘world’ and was back at the startex.
  • No break was taken but Round 2 began continuously while increasing the exercise rep count to two at each corner.
  • Round 3-5 proceeded in like manner, increasing rep count up to 5.
  • Winning team took a victory lap at a conversational pace while losing team performed burpees as prescribed by the winners until all in.
  • Next exercise was a partner rope pull;  Paired PAX got on their six facing one another with GR 12 long rope on the ground in between.  Feet splayed in front and braced upon your partners soles in a diamond shape.  Facing one another each PAX picked up a section of rope and while one pulled the other provided continuous tension.  Once fully extended as in a row exercise, the other partner pulled while the opposite partner extended.  This provided continuous tension throughout the pulling and extending process.  Good work on the forearms, shoulders, and back.
  • Next exercise was a dealers choice rope pull;  PAX assembled around one end of the fully extended GR 12 rope, the other end being affixed to the Q’s weighted ruck sack.  One PAX called out an AMRAP exercise for the others while he sat and pulled in the rope dragging the weighted ruck sack as fast as he could.  Once in, the group moseyed back to the opposite end of the area while the PAX who began grabbed the loose end and moseyed back with the group.
  • The circuit was complete when everyone had taken a turn at the rope pull and called out an AMRAP exercise.  Exercises included (turkey sit up, burpees, merkins, lunges, LBCs, BBCs, . . . etc.)

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Disruption of the status quo, specifically to men who are currently casualties. How can we be a disrupter?  How can we invest and invite into becoming HIMs?

I had questions but very little answers.  Case in point, I had invited 61 men to this workout, one came.  Many of these men I have known and gone through tough times with, done hard things with.  However, many of them are casualties now.  I encouraged the PAX to help break the kinetic energy that binds other men and induce movement toward advantage.

MOLESKIN:
The PAX present during this workout reminded me why I really enjoy F3, especially the 2nd F.  Here, I was floundering the Q, in my own estimation.  However, the PAX didn’t blink, didn’t take it easy but came around me and led.  The four corner exercise ended up more of an all out sprint workout than what I had envisioned, yet we stuck with it and pushed each other hard.  I loved the attitude of the men who just kept going with a smile on their face and not a complaint to be heard.

Next time, shorten the sprints and increase the rep count starting at 5 working up to 10 then back down to 5.  Time it so that the relay team running hits the next corner as the awaiting pair is finishing up the prescribed exercise.  Continuous movement is the objective.

*If you want to win a relay race, have Orange Julius on your team!!  The man can sprint!  Even when he’s nearly lapped the other team.  I could tell his hamstring was hurting him but he always smiled and nodded when I would ask, never a disparaging word.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Next Saturday, November 3rd their are three opportunities: Eli Grow ruck/race register and attend or as a spirit runner, assist Memphis Athletic Ministries (MAM) by administering the physical fitness test to students, or help Pirtle and family move their household.

Prayers for my wife, dealing with a leg infection (much better today) and Hadley, a four year old who suffered a seizure and brain damage recently.

Merkin Mile: Partner Edition

THE SCENE: 55° F. It was perf. The Annex shone brightly on All Hallows’ Eve Eve. It also smelled of fresh-ish asphalt from recent work to repair the gigantic sinkhole that now formerly adorned its eastern quarter. One wonders how many hypodermic needles, murder weapons and deannexation petitions are buried there. The world will never know. Alas …

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA: A Fab Five polished the Turd: Boba Fett, Third Wheel, Rabbit, Speedy, Captain Obvious (QIC)

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM: Challenged the PAX to notice the marginalized, weird, lonely people they encounter. Jesus is prime example of engaging and connecting with people that others were too distracted or proud to see (blind man, demon possessed man, Zacchaeus, etc.). Bible tells us to show hospitality/kindness to everyone. You never know when you might be “entertaining angels” (Heb. 13:2).

MOLESKIN:  The fourth Warm-o-Rama exercise was originally dubbed “Trash Pickers” because YHC holds fast to the idea that this is F3 and not FiA, therefore “Daisy Picker” should not be a phrase uttered by the Q while leading a group of men. That being said, the idea occurred randomly/miraculously during Boba Fett’s Old Man Situps to call them “Turd Pickers” after, and in honor of, The Annex’s hospital name. Other QICs are encouraged to henceforth adopt this naming convention for said exercise going forward. Unrelated: because of our odd number, YHC enjoyed completing a Hi-Five Merkin Threesome with Speedy and Rabbit. NTTAWWT.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: There are many opportunities coming soon to gauge your fitness with the APFT at your local AO. Do that.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Small decisions matter. We know David from 1st and 2nd Samuel as the slayer of Goliath, as a king, as a man after God’s own heart. We think of these big moments when we think of him, but it was the culmination of his “small” decisions that lead him to his big moments. As a sheep herder, he fought off and killed predators to protect his father’s flock – consistent, positive, protecting decisions. This was his petition to Saul when asking to fight Goliath.

Small decisions lead to bigger ones.

Later when he slept with Bathsheba and had her husband killed in battle, it was the small decisions of going to his rooftop, watching her bathe, asking who she was, and sending for her – all “smaller” decisions that led to a series of larger decisions that ultimately lost him favor with the Lord and divided his family.

Encouragement was given that we give equal attention to our smaller and seemingly inconsequential moments, and that God is with us in those, as he is in the bigger moments.
