Mark Your Calendar/Upcoming Events:
Summer of the King Challenge #2 coming July 3 – 16. Curious to see who will be the next Top Q and collaborate with Turkey Leg to come up with the suggestions for this challenge — stay tuned

The 3rd Annual Warden workout is coming to AO-8Track on July 15. The Warden is a workout to honor Boudreaux’s late father on (or near) his birthday, July 23. His father served as a Louisiana Department of Corrections Warden for 20 years. He succumbed to the Covid virus and passed away in the early days of the pandemic.

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


AO and Q Passport Challenge started over for the new year! Post to all 25 F3 Memphis AOs to receive the AO Passport Patch. Step Up and Q all 25 F3 Memphis AOs to receive the Q Passport Patch!
