GORUCK Selection PT Test in Reverse order with slight modifications:

F3 Mission: Fitness, Fellowship, Faith; to plant, serve and grow men’s small workout groups, in order to reinvigorate male community leadership
Principles of F3:

• It must be open to all men
• It must be help outdoor, rain or shine, hot or cold
• It must be peer led in a rotating fashion by men who participate in the workout, with no training or certification necessary
• It must end with a Circle of Trust (COT)
The GoRuck Selection PT test is: 55 Pushups in 2 minutes, 65 Situps in 2 minutes, a 5 mile Run in 40 minutes and then a 12 mile ruck with 45 lbs of steel in 3 hours and 30 minutes.
In order to fit in the selection PT test into our typical Saturday workout the order was reversed and completed in two parts.
This Backblast is Part 2:
45 minute run, 5 Laps were completed on a closed loop in Downtown Perrysburg, most PAX completed 4 laps and some even tackled another quarter lap to get in a full 5 miles completed as each lap left the mileage trackers just short on mileage.
55 push ups in 2 minutes
65 sit-ups in 2 minutes – this was performed with a partner who provided support and held down our toes.
*All PAX put in tons of effort and this Q is extremely proud to have worked hard for these 4 hours alongside some gifted athletes who continued to push themselves for 4 straight hours. Much Respect.
Ended in a COT with Count-o-Rama and Name-o-Rama.
Bambi Led the Prayer; PAX were thankful for completing the workout, prayers offered for Spaulding’s wife to heal quickly and for Spaulding 2.0 as well as for the several PAX and their M’s with new babies on the way.
