Baseball Diamond Dora

6 PAX including 1 FNG got in the game this morning at Eye of The Tyger as we played a Baseball Diamond Dora. It was a true dirt fest as we focused on shoulders and core while in the infield. Here’s a rundown of how it went:

Conditions: 68 degrees and perfect

Warm Up:
20 SSH IC
20 Plank Jacks IC
20 Ins/Outs IC
20 Imperial Walkers IC
10 Burpees OYO

The Main Thang:
Mosey to the big ball field…and it just so happens the outfield gate was wide open. Score.

Baseball Diamond Dora 2-3-4
Pair up for Dora- while one PAX is running the bases, the other PAX is working on completing:
200 Merkins
300 Shoulder Taps Single Count
400 LBCs
Continue to rotate between running and exercises until each team completes all reps

Make a lap around the outfield fence

Diamond Pain
Line up at home plate
Lunge Walk to first base
Broad Jump to second base
Bear Crawl to Third Base
Gut Buster Sprint to Home

Mosey back for Mary

3MOM:
20 Heels to Heaven IC

BOM

Today was a special day for YHC as I remember back to a year ago when I first came to F3. Nailpop had been EHing me for months, and for whatever reason to no avail. When Walker got sick and started having seizures, Nailpop and his family were confined to the hospital for months. the F3 Brothers in Lexington and Columbia started to actually meet at the hospital to support Nailpop, to pray for Walker, and to have a place for Nailpop to workout. That “brotherly love” showed me something was different about this group, and when Nailpop said I had to come for Walker- I was in. Since then I have posted every week in some form or fashion, and I have made more friends…scratch that….I have more Brothers than I though possible. I have said it before, but I’m seeing life change in mens lives. Physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. God is moving in a real way, and it encourages constantly. This is what community looks like, and this is what leadership looks like. Thanks to all the Qs I have worked out underneath, and for all the guys that pour themselves out to make this work. If you are reading this, and you haven’t Q’d yet, I encourage you step up. Own it. Also- keep EHing. There are many guys in your community that are hungry for something just like this.

**Note- keep praying for Walker Phillips and Nailpop & family. They are still in a place of trusting God to move, and for all who have been a witness their story has been a true blessing and testimony. If you want to stay up to date on the latest happenings, check out:

That’s it for now. Look forward to seeing you in the gloom.

God bless,

Mab Mab

    Congrats on one year Mab Mab!! You are a #keyman in F3 and a true inspiration.

    F3 is full of great men and stellar leaders, but you have invested so much of yourself that you truly do stand out in this regard.

    Just a few ways that come right to mind …

    * Riding herd on the last Mud Run.
    * Coming up with the best Mud Run Team Names EVER!
    * Driving Force behind the Tower of Terror AO launch
    * Ditto on Eye of the Tyger AO launch
    * Qing like a MILLION times, and incorporating so many NEW ideas too
    * Bring the Men’s Roundtable to F3. It changed my life brother.
    * Reminding the S.R. PAX to stay #Walkerstrong

    You truly represent servant leadership in my eyes brother. Proud to know you, and can only hope to one day possess a mere fraction of your life wisdom.

  2. IG- Thanks for overly kind words and overwhelming encouragement. It is leaders like you that keep pushing guys like me. You make the PAX around you better by the example you set. You too are have that “servant leader’s” heart and you take it to expand F3 to other areas…even outside of our state! Talk about impressive. Thanks again for your friendship and your bro-hood. 1st F got me here- 2nd and 3rd F keep me coming back.

    ACA- yes, this was my original baseball Q from Tower of Terror. Feel free to use it- I don’t mind! Lol.

    See you men in the gloom soon enough. God bless.
