It was a special honor to lead 116 of the greatest HIM in the F3 Memphis Region this gloom out at their 2-Year Anniversary. Thank you Soybean and the rest of the PAX who decided to remove themselves from the fartsack to join YHC and celebrate this epic milestone. There were also 29 PAX who came early for a Ruck and others who PreRan.
At 0700 we took a mosey over to the FedEx Event Center Circle and began with the F3 Disclaimer and the following:
We began with a quick warmup by performing the following in cadence: Side Straddle Hops, Imperial Walkers, Low Slow Squats, Merkins, 10 6-Count Burpees.
We began this morning by taking a short mosey over to the back of the FedEx Event Center on the lake side at the concrete ledge and benches for a series of the following in cadence: Irkins, Dips, Step-Ups, and Derkins (Regular first and then wide armed).
Then we took a short mosey over to the Music Pavilion to kick off the football season with a little bit of summer conditioning. We did 7-Burpees, 7-Merkins, & 7-Squats 7 times. When we were finished we felt like all we wanted to do with football was sit on the couch and watch.
Looking at my watch we still had 19-Minutes to go. Ugh!
Then YHC asked the PAX mosey back towards the COT to continue the workout near there. At this point we performed a series of 11’s with Star-Jumps (Bombjacks) at the top and Pike Merkins (CDD’s) at the bottom.
The final short mosey took us back to the COT for the countarama, namarama, FNG Naming and most importantly BOM.
All PAX did awesome today. It was a great morning to be with you all. I appreciate the warm welcome and great hospitality.
Great work was put in by all PAX in attendance today. You all have something to celebrate today. Good health and great brothers to lean on. Now go out and spread F3.
Today we discuss a lot about the Mission of F3, the 5 Core Principles and the F3 Credo. They are listed below:
Our mission is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership.
5 Core Principles:
- Are free of charge
- Are open to all men
- Are held outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold
- Are led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary
- End with a Circle of Trust
Leave no man behind, but leave no man where you find him.
Discussed with the PAX was the D2X which is where your Dolphin and you Daffodil align with each other. For more on this take time to read about it in Freed to Lead.
Dolphin-The Task a person was born to do best.
Daffodil-The people-group each person was born to Serve.
D2X-The Task formed by the intersection of a person’s Dolphin and their Daffodil.
Every man has a D2X. What each of you must to is to determine what your Dolphin and your Daffodil are and do your best to ensure those two intersect to make the most IMPACT in your community. Aye!
