5-yearish F3 anniversary for Booster

17 PAX got up to post this morning for a 5-year celebration beatdown. No themed workout, no over complicated component to commemorate the day, just a good old fashion sweatfest.

Conditions- Clear and humid, probably 75 or so



COP- SSH, Through the tunnel, Arm circles, overhead claps, dirty birds, moroccan night club, squats.

Mosey to breezeway and grab some wall for some wall sits. Next exercise is a variation of Failure to Launch. PAX did wall sits and on my call, came out of the sit, did a squat jump, then immediately back to the wall sit. We did 10 over about 90 seconds and everyones legs were toast.

Head over to the parking lot for lunges, frog jumps, penguin walks and Bobby Hurleys, and then turn around rinse and repeat back to the starting point.

Everyone got some space on the curb and we did something along the lines of this:

  • Bear crawl across parking lot>plank>shoulder taps IC> shoulder taps with merkin IC>crawl bear back
  • Crab walk across parking lot>mountain climbers IC> kinda downhill skiing exercise thing IC> crab walk back
  • Fiddler crab walk (sideways crab walk) across parking lot>curb hops IC> scissors on curb IC> step ups on curb IC> fiddler crab walk back
  • Gorilla walk across parking lot> 10 handclap merkins OYO> walk gorilla back
  • Lunge across parking lot> plank variations> backwards lunge back

Mosey to flag for 8 min of Mary with a 90 second break in between to do the Failure to launch variation in the breezeway.

Devo: James 3:3-10

When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.

All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.

With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.

Convicting stuff here from James in the new testament. Are we using our words to encourage and uplift or to spread evil? Be deliberate on how you are using your words.


YHC thinks it was this week in the 2014 that Simon Says EHed me to Crypt for a Ginger Q. I remember two things from that morning. Almost getting named Jock Strap, and laying on my bathroom floor for 20 minutes after the workout trying not to puke. Preciate the EH SS and all the love from the F3 PAX over the years. Blessed to be able to experience and be a part of this. I would be remiss to not thank Treadmill for keeping Turning Point alive on that cold, snowy August morning in 2014 when it was only him who posted. Good to have Shag make the trip across the dam. Good to have Strawberry back. And Arrears joined us a little late, but I appreciate the support.
