    Welcome to F3:
    Gather at flagpole – not at shovel flag
    F3’s purpose is to reinvigorate male community leadership through local workout groups.
    5 principles

    Opening Comments:
    At 6:50 am on this day seven years ago, 34 men gathered in the gloom. This set into motion a series of events which ultimately delivered you to the gloom too.

    The shovel flag is a symbol which we have grown to love, but it didn’t even exist at the beginning of this first workout so they naturally gathered under the flagpole.

    They didn’t know it at the time, but they were launching an unprecedented crusade against sad clowns that would give rise to new found strength in men like you and like me. We are all Qrusaders fighting for ourselves and now too for the men next to us.

    It is not an accident or some sort of coincidence that you posted here today. You posted because you demand more from yourself. Only you know if you are reaching your limits. Stand tall. Feel strong. Be proud. Unshackle your warrior!

    Welcome to the Gloom gentlemen.

    The Thang:
    Today’s beatdown is not the exact workout performed by the men at the first post, but inspired by it. Unless specified otherwise, all exercises will be to a 34 count in recognition of the 34 men posting at that first workout 7 years ago.

    Hill Run to warm up

    In Cadence:
    1. Merkins
    2. Wide Arm Merkins
    3. Diamond Merkins
    4. Military Merkins
    Hill Run – plank for the 6

    In Cadence:
    1. Jump Squats
    2. Dolly (on your 6 with legs 6” off ground- spread apart- bring together)
    3. Flutter Kick
    4. LBC
    Hill Run – plank for the 6

    In Cadence:
    1. Side Straddle Hop
    2. Burpees
    3. Mountain Climber
    Hill Run – plank for the 6

    1. Howling Monkeys (Circle up- 10 monkey humpers each around the circle like dominos but in both directions – when done you hold it until everyone gets a turn to do theirs… faster is better here.)
    2. Jacob’s Ladder (Increasing burpees by 1 at the bottom of the hill up to 7 in recognition of the 7th anniversary of F3). Pick up the six when you finish.

    The Campos was a workout group that grew to problematic numbers and consequently created the first starfish style spinoff – this spinoff was the birth of F3. The Campos Qrusaders left the first shovel flag as a tongue in cheek gift to this first pax with the following note attached to it. Mosey to the Shovel Flag with note attached:

    Pax (if you last),
    Blood, Sweat, Toil & Beer (to bastardize a great phrase) will breed a deep regard called Brotherhood. If you give yourselves to this endeavor, you will find it, and it will find you.
    I hope you reach a point today or next Saturday — where you want to quit. So, in the union of men, “you against you” becomes a public and/or common struggle. It’s here you will see there is much more in you that you’ve withheld — or in your weakness, you’ve rationalized away.
    It’s time; but if you don’t care, we won’t care either. What’s it gonna be, son??

    We have met this challenge 304 times as a region. Today is the 305th workout for F3 Toledo. To commemorate this feat, the last exercise of the morning was a 305 count plank around our shovel flag.

    Count-O-Rama: 30 pax posted
    Name-O-Rama: Peekachoo was changed to Picchu because of a duplicate name. FNG, “Pooh Bear” was named.
    Know the 6: Scrooge is a tightwad. Kitty EH’d him. He EH’d mailman on his very first post.
