F3 stand for Fitness, Fellowship and Faith. It’s easy to get someone out for a free workout that’s the Fitness, that’s why we are all here. The 2nd F is Fellowship which is forming healthy relationship with those in Proximity, which is what F3 excels at, the glue that keeps us coming back. And Faith, which is what that means to you. Faith in God, yourself the man standing next to you.

I am neither trained nor a professional, workout at your own risk and your own benefit; please modify where needed. You’ll be challenged to push yourself beyond your limits by the man standing next to you, you are encouraged to do the same.

– Plank for the 6

– Once 6 arrives we continue to plank further discussing the 2ndF

– the reason PAX keep setting their alarm for 4:30 a.m. multiple days a week is because of the friendships that are built in what we call “the Gloom.” There is something to be said about sweating, bleeding and suffering physical beat downs with the man next to you. Something in that hits men at their core and we naturally bond around sweat and suffering. F3 Encourages that, with the CoT, then reinforce that by participation in physical challenges, mud runs, distance races, distance relays. Typically the more stupid the idea the more likely and F3 man will be to participate. CSAUP (Completely Stupid and Utterly Pointless).

– Recover from plank for a little merry-go-round

– Partners run opposite directions around YoYo’s Circle and perform 10 #pattyMerkins each time they pass each other.

Circle up for Mary

– American Hammers x20 IC
– Seal Sit-ups x15 IC (while discussing the significance of the blocks we carried together this morning)

As we carted these coupons around for .5 miles. YHC never had to say one word about alternating as we ran with your partner. As people in this world we are predisposed to needing our fellow man, helping our fellow man and being there for our fellow man. F3 provides us the opportunity to sharpen and practice those qualities that the sky-Q has embedded in us. We sharpen each other every time we meet out in the gloom, more than just physically with the tough and sometimes idiotic workouts we do. None of us are perfect, but as we resist the fartsack we make an intentional effort to be less imperfect. To offer to carry that weight with our fellow man, to be more receptive to allowing someone to help us carry our own weights and burdens. Without out consistent sharpening of these embedded qualities all we are just lumps of meat carrying blocks in the gloom of life.
