A three-station grinder was set up for PAX. North endzone, south endzone and a runner. 1 PAX from each group was positioned in each of the endzones and AMRAP’d the exercises listed. The 3rd PAX was a runner and acted as the push to move PAX from station to station. PAX had to pay a 3-burpee tax at the 50 yard line.

• Hand-release Merkins

Announcements / Prayers

COT

Spacebar’s COT was a simple message of thanks. Thank you for the support I’ve received over my first 7 weeks of posting. What we do here at F3 is important. Its important in that we better ourselves physically at the beatdowns. Its important that we’re supporting each other every day. I didn’t know I needed F3 until i started posting. Now I don’t know what I’d do without it. I know I’m a better person having found F3. Told the PAX that my M has mentioned several times that I seem to be a happier person since I started posting. We need to continue doing what we’re doing and continue to bring FNGs so more men can experience this with us. A special thank you to Folsom and Stella for their feedback and assistance in helping me during my VQ. T-claps to you both.
