Variety Beat Down

Weather Conditions: 54°

It was another glorious morning ITG as 12 Pax came together in the spirit of betterment.  It was great to see Bing and Ramrod as they made their triumphant returns to the gloom as well.  YHC was very pleased with the turnout this morning, but quickly realized that the original workout plan would have to be scrapped due to insufficient block numbers (you #KnownBlockBreakers know who you are).  Another beat down plan was quickly formulated, and the stage was set.  Instruction game was weak as always, but that is not going to stop these strong men from putting in some work.  As for the workout, here is how it went:

Struggles and hardships are going to come our way as a part of life.  God is going to challenge and test us to promote spiritual/mental/physical/etc. growth.  It’s far too easy to take these struggles and let them get us down and keep us down, but that cannot be the outcome.  Trust God and keep moving forward, but know you have F3 Brothers to help you along the way as well.
