Highlights for this week:
Summer of the King Challenge #1: “Rise of the Tomb Raider”
Between June 12th and June 26th, complete the following 3S2T challenges (courtesy of our current Top Q, Tomb Raider) on your own, with a group of PAX, or incorporate into your Q:

  • Speed Challenge — 200m three team relays
  • Stamina Challenge — 10 mile run or ruck (one or the other, non-stop)
  • Strength Challenge — 200 blockies/baggies (non-consecutively or consecutively)
  • Toughness (physical) — Bearcrawl/crabwalk 1 mile consecutively AND/OR do the “Shawn” Hero WOD
  • Toughness (mental) — Put the phone up each time you are with your family or friends.  Pick it back up only after kids are in bed, you are relatively alone, and you get 30 minutes before fartsacking.  Talk to a real person.  Read a book.

1ST F – Fitness

Summer of the King From Q-Source: The King https://f3nation.com/king-q1-3/
Turkey Leg (1st F Mane) will be pushing out challenges over the course of the summer with help from special guests (aka Top Qs) targeted specifically towards 3S2T: Speed, Strength, Stamina, Toughness (physical) and Toughness (mental). The goal of the King is to constantly increase 3S2T. These are the aspects of a HIM’s physical kingdom that enable him to do the things he must do to be a Leader. The Top Q is selected by PAX Vote (could be creativity, COT, tough workout, anything goes). The Top Q then picks the following:

  1. Time period (at least one week, could be up to two weeks)
  2. Exercises/thangs that PAX can do on their own or that Qs can incorporate into their Qs with the 3S2T categories (referenced above) so there will be at least 5 suggestions

Congratulations to Tomb Raider for being selected the inaugural Top Q and kicking us off this week with Summer of the King Challenge #1: “Rise of the Tomb Raider”
