Q: Lucky Charms
Promptly at 5:15 YHC welcomed everyone to F3, and that we were focusing on both the 1 st and 2 nd F today, with some
fitness and fellowship. We gathered this morning to plant, grow, and serve small workout groups for the reinvigoration of
male community leadaership. Our 5 principals are that we are free, open to all men, held outdoors, lead in a rotating
fashion, and end in a COT. We had one FNG (welcome Pinto!) so we were reminded to modify as necessary and that I
am not a professional.
Warm-a-rama: Around flag pole
 Moseyed around the track once and circled up at mid field.
 Tappy Taps x 10 IC
 Big ones x 10 IC
 SSH x 20 IC
 Sun Gods x 10 each way
 High Knees x 10 IC
 Butt Kickers x 10 IC
Counted off into 1s and 2s.
The Thang: Field Goals & 2 nd F Workouts
Teams split up on the 10-yard line at opposite hash marks facing the south end zone. One person will hold, one person
will kick. Each kicker gets two tries and shags his own ball. Holder does SSH while the kicker is retrieving the football.
Everyone else will circle up and do an exercise as a group. All exercises are AMRAP until the next kicker steps up. After
one round, total field goals made are counted up. Winners do 5 merkins, losers do 5 burpees.
 Mountain climbers
 Air squats
 Cherry pickers
 E2Ks
 Inch Worms
 Apollo Onos
 Goofballs
 Copperhead squats
 Dry docks
 American Hammers
 Sun Gods
 5-yard shuffles in squat position
 Big Boys
 Lunges
 Merkins
With not a lot of time to rinse and repeat, PAX all moved back from the 10 to the 22. Everyone would get one kick. No one
made it. Several were close, but Connor Culp’s job appears to be safe given the lack of skill we had across the large
group of grown men. At Omaha, each team picked a kicker for a chance to win. Losers did 20 burpees, winners did 5.
With not one make from 32 yards, Chernobyl finally knocked one in to break the tie and give his team the victory!
It’s worth noting that Gobbler was feeling confident and bet burpees on a make. He went barefoot and not only missed,
but barely got the ball off the ground. Tough to watch but love the competitiveness.

No time for Mary today. Too busy talking trash and having fun.
 It’s Mulch’s 37 th birthday!
 Levee has his VQ at the Farm on Friday.
 Prayers for Animal House’s coworker who is expected to leave the hospital.
 Prayers for Knobs’ friend Becca who is in the hospital and struggling. Keep them all in your prayers.
While not tied to the workout, something that I have needed to hear lately is a quote: “He who is everywhere is nowhere.”
– Seneca. It’s tough to be everything to everyone, but yet we try. Doing this we get spread out, frustrated, tired, and beat
down. Instead, prioritize everything in your life. Make time for your priorities and be present in those moments. Or, as Ron
Swanson once said on Parks ‘n Rec, “Don’t half ass two things, whole ass one.” So today’s call-to-action is to think about
your priorities and be there for them, without distraction.
YHC lead us out in a brief prayer.
