THE SCENE: Highly recommend getting to an AO early before the ruckus of mumblechatter interrupts the gloom. You get to stargaze and think about stretching and hydrating. Especially pleasant with a full moon perched on the horizon in mid-70 degree temps.
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER: doubled down for the benefit of a few tardy PAX. Oh crap, the sudden appearance of Mayberry after Warm-o-Rama prevented his disclaiming. Mayberry, I am not a professional, you are not paying to be here, modify as needed. Done. Its documented now and counts.
WARM-O-RAMA: Smurf jacks x 16 IC, Windmills x 16 IC, Hand release Merkins x 16 IC, Monkey Humpers x 16 IC, 180 Jump Squats x 16 IC, Balls to the Wall x 1 minute w/ Inverted Vertical Merkins
Quick mosey to the ‘gym’. Partner work with pull up bars. Partner 1 grabbed high bar. Partner 2 got in plank position underneath and grabbed Partner 1’s ankles. Partner 2 held dangling ankles of 1 while using core to elevate from ground. Held as long as possible then switch.
2nd iteration; same as above with Partner 2 doing Mt. Climbers.
Alternating Ankle tap Burpees x 16 IC, Dips x 16 IC
1/4 mile jog to the ‘hillock’. 16 rounds of crab walk/bear crawl up and down the hillock. Modified from crab walk uphill and bear crawl down to vice versa.
1/4 mile jog back to the gym. Hill sprints up to the CMU area x 2.
MARY: No ladies in F3. They have FiA.
COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
M and I celebrate 16 yrs of marriage tomorrow.
Love is a decision not a feeling. Decide to be with the one and reject the many, each day. Very thankful for 16 yrs with the love of my life. Accelerate your relationship with your M via 1st accelerating your relationship with your Creator. Encourage, support, and push your M to grow in her relationship with her Creator. As you both grow in your 3rd F, you will also become closer.
Remember, your M is hearing the same lies and even more lies from the oppressor as you are on a day to day basis. Speak truth into her life and serve her sacrificially.
Lots of divorce going on the past two weeks. Praying for miracles but put in the work as a leader of your M and ask the Maker to form you into a better husband.
The problem with your marriage is you. Own it, surrender, fix it with help from God and friends, and she will respond to radical life change like a bug attracted to a bug zapper (with God’s heart changing help).
Walk out with hands away from the wall to a 45 or greater angle for Inverted ‘declined’ Merkins.
Partner Ankle Hold Plank Hangs have potential but need some help. Harbaugh and Bullwinkle’s technique was the best as they stuck their head between the ankles wrapping their arms around the hanging partner’s feet. From this position they were able to hold plank and perform Mt. Climbers.
Lined up for a 3rd Hill Sprint and tricked PAX by moseying back to the flag. It’s good to push us to our breaking point mentally and physically then add a psychological reprieve from time to time.
ANNOUNCEMENTS: Prayer requests for Justin’s surgery (Snookie’s friend) and Andrew’s surgery (Little John’s 2.0). Prayers for all the PAX and friends of PAX going through a divorce currently, may God show us a miracle through healed relationships.
Anniversary workout this Saturday 7-8. Help Meter Maid move furniture immediately following.
