Preblast for the Week of 8/13/18

Highlights for the week: Three VQs (Transplant, Carport, Flatland), Iron PAX, week two of Ruins launch, AOQ training Monday night, and one amazing anniversary workout.

F3 Memphis Anniversary:
We’re turning one! A year ago, 42 HIM launched a movement in Memphis. This Saturday, we’ll celebrate our first year of existence with an old-fashioned snot woggler led by Gus. After the workout, we’ll have cold-brewed coffee and a potluck breakfast. Families are welcome! We want to see a huge group out, so start EH-ing!

Iron PAX Challenge:
We’re joining other F3 regions across the nation in a little friendly competition: who is the fittest PAX of them all. There will be weekly, timed challenges, and each PAX who participates will report his own results. Check Slack for more details. Cheesesteak is our Iron PAX Q.

New Region Plants:
We have the privilege of helping two new regions get off the ground. The mission of F3 is to plant, serve, and grow men’s workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership. We’ve been doing awesome planting new AOs in the Memphis area, and now it’s time to start branching out. In August, we’ll be helping launch F3 in Mobile, AL. Martin, TN launch has been pushed to October. Join the #plant channels in Slack to get in on the action.

F3 Mobile: Launching 8/18
Bottomless will Q 8/25 – Joining him are O Positive and Four Eyes.

F3 Martin: Launching in October
Memphis will Q dates are TBD. Free lodging will be available.

We’re also leading a Black Ops workout in Little Rock in the hopes of launching there soon – 8/25, Q’d by Bruce and Soybean

GrowRuck 12, September 21-23:
Read the updated, official event preblast here. This includes the full weekend schedule.

Registration is open! Go pay your deposit!  We are potentially being capped at 70 PAX unless registration jumps quickly in the next couple of weeks. Go ahead and HC. This is one time when FOMO is real and justified. You don’t want to be that guy the week after GrowRuck hearing all of our stories and lessons learned.

All 3 F’s will be out in full force. We sent nine HIM to Chattanooga last year for GrowRuck 05, and we all came home with stronger bonds as brothers, lots of personal lessons, and a greater appreciation of F3’s mission/vision and the IMPACT we can have on Sad Clown Syndrome in our community.

SprintFest and AMRAP at the Berm

THE SCENE: 77 and pretty stinkin dark and dry.  82% Humidity.

F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER: Done and Done….Twice actually.

WARM-O-RAMA:

  • Side Straddle Hop x 20 in cadence.
  • Imperial Walkers x 20 in cadence.
  • Daisy Pickers x 18ish in cadence as QIC was a little off his game early.
  • Arm Circles x 10 Forward, Arm Circles x 10 Reverse.
  • Stretch what ails you. As a new FNG approached PAX, QIC went over the disclaimer again.

THA-THANG:

  • SprintFest
    • In an attempt to increase our natural HGH (in hopes of hitting like Barry Bonds one day), we did a short Mosey to the field where PAX lined up to perform 70 yard wind sprints x 8.
    • Our first sprint was at 50% effort, second at 60%, third at 70%, fourth at 80%, the rest were performed at maximum effort.  All PAX were spent at this point, but no Merlot was splashed in plain sight.
  • AMRAP
    • PAX then did a jello-legged Mosey to the Parking Lot where we performed one minute of each exercise AMRAP followed by a Mosey around the building.  The QIC decided it only made sense to begin by punishing our smoked legs with the following:
      • Prisoner Squats x 1 minute, then Mosey.
      • Alternating Lunges x 1 minute, then Mosey.
      • Friggin’ Catalina Wine Mixers x 1 minute, then Mosey.
      • Carolina Dry Docks x 1 minute, then Mosey.
      • Shoulder Taps x 1 minute, then Mosey.
      • Merkins x 1 minute, then QIC decided to call an audible and follow up with American Hammers x 29 seconds.  American Hammers were interrupted by divine intervention as a rogue gust of wind blew down our Shovel Flag.  At this point, both Rabbit and Lil Nicky kindly reminded us to perform penalty burpees.  These were not served with a side of ice cream, and burned terribly.  American Hammers were then resumed by PAX until final 31 seconds were completed.

MARY:

  • Freddie Mercury’s x 1 minute.
  • ABC’s in cadence.
  • Partner Leg Throw-downs x 20.

15 PAX posted (1 FNG – Flat Tire) – Geppetto, Reznor, Veggie Tales, Ups, Rapunzel, Tomb Raider, Beaker, Boucher, Rabbit, Speaker, Sno-Cone, Popeye, Lil’ Nicky, Flat Tire, Dr. Scholls

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
We called out the “fruits of the spirit:” love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  All of us should examine our weaknesses in these areas and be more aware and more prayerful for strength in our shortcomings.  Rely on God, rely on each other, don’t be short-sighted in our decisions, stretch better before sprints.

MOLESKIN:
Today the PAX was a great group – new guys, veterans, and everything in between.  QIC was excited to work out with a few guys he doesn’t see as often.  The Berm is improving in our mumblechatter, which always makes for a good time. Rogue winds can happen anytime at the Bermuda Triangle, so plant your shovel flag somewhere near the Earth’s mantle.

Transparency

Recognize transparency is not a weakness but strength. YOU must become transparent with yourself, feelings, fears, and dreams

Continue with your spouse, children, and family as God gives you words to encourage, direct, and cast vision for your family

Proverbs 27:17

Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.

Find a man you can be transparent with – at F3 or in your local church, at work.    We all get better together!!

Giving Thanks

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 – Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

We should always be giving thanks to God. In good times and bad.  When we give thanks there are three things that happen:

1.  It shrinks our thoughts of ourselves

2. It grows our love for God

3. It grows our love for others.

MOLESKIN:
This was a repeat of the very first workout at the Cockpit.  Two months ago I posted for the first time and this workout kicked my butt.  I was extremely sore for the next several days.  Matter of fact, for my first three weeks of F3, I was in a constant state of soreness.  But now I’m getting better and that is what it is all about.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Saturday
– Ruck Workout, The Mothership (Shelby Farms – FedEx Event Center Lot), 5:30-6:30 am – Heavyweight on Q
– **ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY** Bootcamp Workout, The Mothership (Shelby Farms – FedEx Event Center Lot), 7:00-8:00 am – Gus on Q – Followed by iced coffeeteria and a BYOBreakfast celebration – invite your families!

Last Minute Burpee Fest

THE SCENE:

Thick, humid 75 degrees.

F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER

Did it, including sharing the mission of F3.


WARM-O-RAMA:

  • SSH (IC) – 20
  • Hillbillies (IC) – 15
  • LBAC (IC) – 12
  • Daisy Pickers (IC) – 12
  • Mosey lap around the parking lot

THA-THANG:

Burpee fest
 
For each round, do the following in succession:
  • 1 burpee, 5 Merkins
  • 2 burpees, 5 Merkins
  • 3 burpees, 5 Merkins
  • 4 burpees, 5 Merkins
  • 5 burpees, 5 Merkins
Arm raises or hold squat until all in. Then proceed to next round of burpee + merkin variation…
 
  • Round 1: burpees + Merkins
  • Round 2: one leg burpees (right leg) + right hand curb Merkins
  • Round 3: one leg burpees (left leg) + left hand curb Merkins
  • Round 4: burpos + derkins (using concrete picnic table benches)
  • Round 5: burpee box jumps + incline Merkins (using concrete picnic table benches)

Once we finished all 5 rounds, we did the following:

Merkin zipper + bear crawl

All PAX get down in high plank position in two lines facing each other and offset. So – basically looks like two lines of PAX in high plank almost shoulder to shoulder but every other PAX is facing the opposite direction. Make sense? The person at the end of the line does one Merkin, then high fives the person across from him then returns to high plank. That person then does one Merkin and high fives the person across from them and returns to high plank. This repeats all the way down the line and then comes back to the beginning.

After we got all the way though that, the two lines did crawl bear to the end of the parking lot island (~12-15 yards?), then bear crawled back to startex.

We repeated this twice.

We had a little more time after this so we did shoulder blasters (almost non-stop, IC 10 count for each of the following):
  • overhead arm clap
  • overhead press
  • point to shoulders
  • point to tramp stamp
  • out front arm raises
  • out to the side arm raises
  • overhead arm clap

MARY:

  • Iron Cross Dalai Lama (IC) – 19
  • LBC’s (IC) – 20
  • Freddy Mercury (IC) – 20
  • American Hammer (IC) – 15
  • Hello Dolly (Raising to a Rosalita and back down half way through) – (IC) – 20

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

When you feel like you are being mistreated, don’t assume the worst of the other person. Ask them how they are feeling or what they have going on. Many times they may not be having a problem with you, but are wrestling through their own junk. So – instead of pointing out how they have hurt you or wronged you, etc. ask them how they are doing.

MOLESKIN:

Old Forest had a strong showing this morning!

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Lots of things going on – AOQ training TONIGHT (8/13), F3 Memphis Anniversary workout and celebration Saturday, lots of VQ’s this week, Growruck 12 coming up. All can be found in this week’s PREBLAST.

“Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.” James 5:16

If you don’t already have someone, get with someone you can be scary close with! We need someone to confess sins to, because there may be things hidden deep inside that you haven’t exposed yet. As we continue to grow and be better, we need to recognize we are still not perfect. There is healing and growth in confession.

10 PAX with no FNG’s
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Moneybags shared from John 15:5-6.  We talked about what it meant to “bear fruit” and staying intimately connected to God through making quiet time with prayer and scripture a priority.  Only then can we understand what God has planned for us and live out our potential and begin bearing fruit.  Becoming disconnected from God is an easy trap with busy lives which makes us unavailable and not useful for His purpose.  We need to encourage each other to abide in Christ which starts with meaningful time in prayer and studying His Word.

MOLESKIN:
I appreciate everyone joining me this am.  The work was tough, but everyone was encouraging each other.  Cheesesteak really helped to keep the pace fast for great cardio work.  I’m not sure about the other guys, but I will feel this one tomorrow.  I believe we got 35 sets in with four 200- yd runs.  Hard to keep track when your body is starved for oxygen.

10 PAX (0 FNGs were brave enough to taste what Old Man Hitch cooked up)
Woodpecker, Choker, Carport, Casio, Commie, Flobee, Orange Julius, Gilligan, The Chauffeur

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
The Q made note of the importance of brotherhood. We married men have plenty of opportunities for to commune with our families but at times we can forget that community among men doing hard things is different. While fixing the sink, helping with homework, and leading your family is a calling, we miss out on the encouragement of our Brothers and at times, and sometimes more importantly, their admonishing.
When life sucks Brothers remind us that we are not alone. They laugh and cry with us. Pray for and with us. But the best part is, when the devil closes in and convinces us that “life is hard, you can take a break,” Brothers get in your face and tell you to get up, the harvest is plenty but the workers are few.
Life is hard, let’s do it together.

MOLESKIN:
The Chauffeur is fast, but the Q is still faster. The Morg was nice, but I wonder if any Morglians would hang with the Inner Loopers. Hmmm. Also man, I wonder what Phat Pat was doing while we were doing pistol squats…

Good work boys. Thanks for letting me play my music.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
GrowRuck12 needs more mans.
