*Radar was the photographer*
YHC had the Q this morning and was eager to see pax from other AOs that I’ve missed for some time – and to make the special announcement at the end of the beatdow. 7 minutes before seven and those Pax who deserve our RESPECT (50+) outnumbered the rest of us 6 to 3. Fortunately, due to Benchwarmer’s passioned plea to the group chat, several other pax heard the call and a total of 16 pax got better this morning. Correction: several pax additionally got better at the Spartan Beast, but it wasn’t as tough as what we had laid out ahead of us:-)
20 IC Mountain Climbers
15 IC Imperial Walkers
10 IC Merkins
10 IC Penningstons (forward & reverse)
10 OYO Reverse Burpees
15 IC Monkey Humpers
10 OYO Burpees
YHC admits, this was a bit clustered, BUT we got it straightened out and attributed the delay to the pax trying to put off the inevitable #beatdown. Break into Teams of 3: Comprised of Partner A, B, & C
Partner A: Field behind Y. Bear Crawl from Cargrill Sidewalk to YMCA Sidewalk. 10 REVERSE Burpees
Partner B: Block Slider down Cargrill. Perform 10 burpees and return. Complete until time to rotate. **the grumbling mumblechatter began before the first exercise was even kicked off here**
Partner C: farmer carry one concrete block four corners of the WZ field. 10 burpees at EACH/EVERY corner. Finish with 50 big boy situps.
Partner C is the *rotating timer* when they are complete.
Same groups of 3:
Wheelbarrow (or bearcrawl) length of War Zone. Stopping at each hanging swing on LEFT Side and complete 10 merkins (each pax). YHC would like to point out the ONLY pax that said they would do the wheelbarrow was the Legend, Radar. Everyone else, including YHC took the slightly easier route of bear crawls. T-claps Radar!
Plank or air chair for the six and then lunge walk to the flag. Circle up for some quick Mary
COT & Mary:
20 IC flutter kicks
20 IC box cutters
I remember March of 2015 a certain pax came to my Q. It was his first time out and I had not met him prior. By the end of the workout, he was thoroughly worn out – and then came the tunnel of love. BUT he came back out and that first two months the transformation physically was astounding.
Over the past two years, we’ve all seen him transform and really stand out as a #HIM. Dropping weight and physically pushing himself and many others to get better together and then overcoming literally “crippling setbacks, to now being one of F3 Hartsville’s outspoken advocates and pushing for 2.0 and F3 Dads involvement. Recently, with several other pax, they’ve sought ways to push men, dig deeper and complete extremely hard challenges only by leaning on each other (read: 30 Day CSAUP challenges). Green Acres has taken the call to lead other men and agreed to be Hartsville’s next Nan’Tan. Let’s welcome him and support him in every way that he has supported us!
Welcome FNG, Sludge! Pushed hard and kept up every step of the way, look forward to you joining us more!
Grid Iron had its kickoff this past Thursday with 5 FNGs. Keep getting the word out to other men in the community, especially in the Kellytown area. Reach out to Green Acres, Goldi, LoveBug, GroundBlind, Stallion, or Shaffer to get them plugged in there.
Why do we compare ourselves w others?
Often, what is really being compared is our “insides” or how we see ourselves to others “outsides” or how perfect it seems like their life is.
Two fold reason here:
1. what it will lead to in our own life
“Comparison is the thief of joy” -T.Roosevelt
Galatians 6:4-5, MSG Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.
2. it prevents us from really seeing the needs of others or how we could love them during their difficult times
Prayer and Close Out
Privileged to lead this morning, men!
