Today’s 4 PAX at Jumanji was only a start to what the morning would hold for YHC on a rainy and mid 40 degree day.
After Disclaimer and opening prayer the PAX warmed up with SSH, TT Tunnel, Windmills etc. Mosey to the brick pile select your poison (Block or bricks). Slowsey to the middle school long awning to get out of the rain. Continue warm up with LBCs, steps ups etc. PAX took turns farmer carry two blocks the length of awning while the others did an exercise (squats, BB sit ups, calf raises, flutter kicks etc). Slowsey to the new school for a change of scenery basically doing the same process and for remainder of work out. Put blocks up and mosey to the flag. Excellent effort as always.

Wait. There’s more. One of #theherd’s faithful was scheduled to Q at F3themission, but instead mistakenly locked his keys in his car. He was in a bind and YHC did what any good brother would do and went to F3themission to fill in. This would be YHCs first Q at this AO. The men of F3themission had just finished opening prayer and disclaimer when YHC showed up. We started out with 8 PAX.
Warm up with SSH, TT Tunnel, Tea Party toe touches, mercans, etc. Mosey around a bit with high knees, butt kicks, etc. Mosey to the amphitheater area for one minute mayhem. Do exercise for 1 minute (squats, Mtn climbers, planks, LBCs, LB arm circles, BB sit ups etc). It was here that an FNG came to see what we were all about and started to participate. He was welcomed, the disclaimer was given again and and he would continue the work out. The PAX were divided into two groups. One group would run the steps of the amphitheater while the others would do an exercise. Sort of a runner is the timer kind of thing. Squats, LBC, arm circles, calf raises, flutter kicks etc). Mosey around the pond a bit. Circle up for merry, core exercises, and mosey back to the shovel flag. Excellent work. Excellent effort for these men. Always a pleasure to see the men of f3themission. It meant even more to lead them. Happy, honored, humbled to have the opportunity to lead.
