F3-versary with all kinds of (Slots) squats
32* but damp and a little breezy. Felt cold. Great day to post.
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
Today was YHC’s F3-versary. In a shout out to Slots and my first post, I Q’d almost the same workout from one year ago.
YHC could not resist the opportunity to add one of his personal favorites, Chumbaburpees, and we had time, so that’s what we did.
COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
Slots, Woody, Nature Boy, Gus, Slicnut, Woodpecker, U-Rock, Squints (FNG), YHC on Q
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I remember when I came out to F3 I was nervous about whether or not I could cut it. I wasn’t sure what the Q would do. I wasn’t sure if I would like the guys I met. After Slots Q a year ago, I wondered if I would be able to walk a flight of steps. But what I’ve found in F3 is the ability to root for men like me who are trying to do the hard things everyday: push their bodies physically, love their families well, strive for excellence in their jobs, invest in their communities. And I love the guys I’ve met and I’m more open to those kinds of relationships because I know we’re on the same page here, striving together. I didn’t think I would love F3. Rabbit EH’d me for a while and I kept saying no, but I should have said yes. Gus EH’d me and I thought I owed him a favor. What I’ve found is that I’m in the best physical shape of my life since college, maybe even more so in some ways. But I look forward to the grind and the gloom in ways I wasn’t willing to try in my late 20’s. But I don’t really want to boast about any of it. Jeremiah 9:23-24 says….that’s what I want to boast about. I’m thankful for each of you.
Great day to get some work in. Shoutout to Slots for being making me do all those squats a year ago…and for being a good sport as I poked fun at all of those squats a year later. Gus did not truly appreciate my playlist of 1990-1992 hip hop hits….but Shoestring would have. You can only lead a horse to water.
