CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
“As Iron Sharpens Iron, so one man sharpens another.”  The 43 feet podcast this week was focused on the whetstone relationship.  This is a mentor/protege or discipleship relationship where one man (the mentor) is the whetstone pouring into the other (the protege) who is the blade.  The stone sharpens the blade.

YHC challenged the PAX to find one of these relationships both ways if they’re not already in one.  You should always be receiving from somebody older wiser, somebody who has been there before you and what you learn, you should be pouring into somebody else.

MOLESKIN:
Slicnut broke another wooden rail along the rode during Dips portion of Route 66.  There ain’t no nut slicker than a Slicnut nut.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

YHC spoke of what it means as Believers to receive God’s grace and blessings in our lives.  Illustrated the difficulty when the Lord wants to bless His children but so often we come to Him burdened and heavy-laden (guilt, sin, *fill in the blank here*) with our arms and hands full.  We must lay our burdens at His feet.  Only then can we be empty-handed.

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.

Double qtr pounder, hold the mayo at the Levee

THE SCENE: Pleasant morning. I left my humble abode at 0505 and proceeded to hit every light between there and the Levee. I told CPT Obvious to start on the 50 burpee warmup without me, but as I was getting out of my car, I just heard what I thought was the disclaimer. As I approached the circle, I asked CPT Obvi if he had, in fact, given the disclaimer. He responded in the negative, and so I…

F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER: …welcomed the PAX and disclaimed the disclaimer…no, that’s not right. 

WARM-O-RAMA:
We completed what has become a standard warm-up circuit for me. Is that bad? Boring? I don’t know. It’s effective.

Men should be accelerating in their fitness, fellowship, and faith. You have to plan to accelerate, and you ought to plan how to accelerate daily in each of the three Fs. Leaders cause those in their lives to move towards advantage, and you ought to have a plan to lead the people under your influence. Go make your plans.

MOLESKIN:
I’m “sorry” that this BB took “so” long to “publish”. Murse parked in the road next to the stadium, despite there being a parking lot right next to the road. I assume GPD applied a boot, but I didn’t stick around after to find out. On an unrelated note, Murse was going to court that day for a speeding ticket.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Spiritual discipline of the “Holy NO”.

“How are you?”  Busy.

My typical response when not responding instinctively with the typical ‘fine’.  I find that I have a hard time saying NO.  NO can be good, the English language categorizes this as a negative but it also should be used as a positive.

We take on too much and it’s detrimental to acceleration.  Extra house projects, side jobs, sports, yes even another men’s Bible study!  Don’t try to cram all this into a day.  What happens is that our relationship with God suffers, our wives suffer, our children suffer, and our quest for daily survival supplants excelling in our gifting.  Usually we shouldn’t give a damn about what the enemy is doing, but it is an effective strategy to keep us busy in things we think are holy but  make us ineffective.

Say NO more, prioritize your relationship with God first, wife second, 2.0’s a distant third.  Say NO, to that extra F3 workout, say NO to that third birthday party on a Saturday, say NO to that third Sunday service  small group Chan video worship series (unless Cheese Steak is leading).

When you prioritize your relationship to God, Wife, Kids, Friends than all the other little things fall into the void spaces that remain.  Your heart, mind, spirit, and energy will be focused on the things that matter and give you new eyes and a new heart to take advantage of the opportunities given you.  NO cramming necessary.

What I’ve recently learned  is that we as humans are never a finished product regardless of age and past experiences. Changes for the better or worse are always possible. Life is constantly testing your character and faith by presenting situations that require you to have an emotional response.  You  always have the power to respond in a positive manor to any situation regardless of how you have responded in the past.  The cycle CAN be upgraded.

Somethings need to be said out loud to be heard.

Did what I suppose to do. Also gave a disclaimer that the workout was designed to be on the football field but realized the football field was locked (even the north gate) 2 min. before the workout. Thus we would be improvising and using a deck of cards.

Mousey to the softball field.

THA-THANG:
Had PAX line up on foul line of baseball field and pair up. Using a modified (no face cards) deck of cards Q would have a PAX draw a card each round. Odd numbers (1,3,5,7,9) were Burpees and Even numbers (2,4,6,8,10) were Air squats.  OH and we added a 0 to each number drawn which gave the total number of burpees or air squats to be performed by pair. Pax would sprint to either midfield (if card drawn was <5) or opposite foul line (>6). Pax would complete the exercise and then either sprint back, run backwards, bear crawl, or carry partner. Q’s decision each round.

Cards drawn during Tha-Thang:

  • 70 Burpees
  • 50 Burpees
  • 20 airsquats
  • 50 Burpees
  • 80 Airsquats

2 Corinthian 12:7-10
“So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited. Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

MOLESKIN:
His power is made perfect in our weakness. He doesn’t call us to be strong on our own. For HE is the strength.  HE redeems all broken things. We are called to surrender (yield to yield).

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Encouraging the men to be intentional with their daily red pill.  It’s easy to take the blue pill and succumb to comfort, give in to the easier things this world offers.  It’s easy to stay in bed.  My last COT was on modeling life for our kids.  They will do the things that you do in front of them.  For that reason, I get out of my bed when it’s hard and do hard things to get better everyday.  This is in all areas of life.  I’m not perfect by any stretch and we all fail, we’re human.  But, we need to be intentional about getting in the Word, modeling priority time, growing in Christ for the sake of ourselves, our M’s, our 2.0s, and all the other sad clowns of the world.

MOLESKIN:

Harbaugh shared some honest truth with us.  Thank you for that Harbaugh.  Men, don’t be afraid to let others in and confide with the PAX in 2nd F.  Going through life in this fallen broken world alone will lead to destruction.  The PAX are stronger together.

“Look, we are all reasonable men here; we don’t have to give assurances as if we were lawyers.” – Don Barzini
Let your yes be yes, and your no be no. – MM

“You talk about vengeance. Is vengeance gonna bring your son back to you?  Or my boy to me?  I forego the vengeance of my son.” – Don Vito Corleone
