Mary no mercy!

9 PAX posted this morning for too much Mary! Waterfall on Q.

The Warm Up: 20 SSH IC, 20 Moroccan Night Club IC, 20 Cherry Pickers IC, Bolt 45 (AKA zoo keeper special)

The Thang: PAX teamed up in pairs of two. Half shuffled with their ruck sacks around the church. The other half did Mary. Then they swapped. We did Mary off of this sheet provided by Waterfall’s M, “Flamingo.” See the sheet here:
https://darebee.com/ab-exercises.html We got through the “side jack knives” before we ran out of time.

The Message: Q read from the Easter story, John chapter 20. Waterfall commented that he is like Peter because he is always getting outrun.

True Confessions

Date: 4/9/19

QIC: Chappie

Okay, as you can see by the BB title YHC has to come clean. True Confession: Tuesday’s workout, as quickly perceived by the astute Vanilla, had a hidden two-fold motive–1) YHC signed on to complete the GORUCK April #RuckingChallenge and needed to get in Day 1, so WE did, and, 2) A “ruck” workout without a ruck (sandbags instead) might just be a catalyst for someone to step into the circle and buy a ruck, and hence, get into rucking. Did it work? THAT is the question.

12 PAX won THAT FIRST BATTLE and got jump-started with a good Warmup VQ by Doubtfire, then those who did not have a ruck with them (ruckers were alerted night before) were directed to the shed to grab a sandbag coupon. Shout out to Leatherman, each bag NOW weighs 40lbs. PAX circled up again in the parking lot where YHC esplained the forthcoming routine…

Day 1 of the GORUCK Lucky 7 Rucking Challenge: 7 Ruck workouts 7 days during April.

PAX would carry either a 40lb ruck or a 40lb sandbag throughout the workout. PAX went 2x around the block to complete 1 mile by doing the Double-Deuce shuffle. That’s 22 shuffle/mosey steps to remember that the average of American Servicemen and women who take their own lives on a daily basis is 22. The average is said to have come down to 20, but even 1 is too many. So we shuffle 22 steps, with PAX taking turns to call a bit of a cadence, then we stepped for 22. Rinse and repeat for the entire mile.

While doing the Double-Deuce the PAX circled up for pain at corners #1 and #3:

Corner #1: PAX paired up and alternated back & forth to complete 10 sets x 10 Ruck/Sandbag Squats each…Double-deuce to corner 3.

Corner #3: PAX paired up and alternated back & forth to complete 10 sets x 10 Ruck/Sandbag Merkins each (#brutal!). Continue Double-Deuce shuffle around block to circle up again at corner 1…

Corner #1: PAX paired up and alternated back and forth to complete 10 sets x 10 Ruck/Sandbag American Hammers (a.k.a. Russian Twists) each. Continue Double-Deuce Shuffle all the way around the block, back to the AO to complete 1 mile.

Upon returning to the AO we circled to close it out with the following 3rdF:

At the beginning of March YHC posted a meme on our GroupMe that said:      “THERE’S A FIGHT RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER, JUST WAITING…” The idea is to get ready for whatever the fight might be. In the last couple of months, I’ve been walking through fights with people who never saw them coming. Health battles. Marriage battles. Financial battles. Emotional battles. Pornography battles. Anger battles. Etc. But my point is that I’ve NOT been in these battles with people JUST because I’m a pastor.

We tend to read or hear a statement like the above and respond individually. While it takes a personal response, that phrase was/is meant to move us into the arena of that fight corporately/together (whatever the fight may be). I.e. We are supposed to battle along side one another. After all isn’t that the 2ndF part of what of why we get together?

You can try to prove me wrong on this, but you’ll find it to be true: Did you know that almost ALL of the references to spiritual growth in the Bible are corporate/plural? That means you don’t have to read between the lines. It means that the best (if not, the only) way to grow, to fight, to gauge a victory is through/by way of the relationships we have with one another. As Maverick as we like to be, or think we should be, this means we were NEVER meant to fight alone.

Some of these thoughts were formulated from Friday’s 43 Feet Podcast (great one, listen to it). Practically speaking, we need about 3-4 other men to lock shields with. When our shields are locked together with other men beside us, we notice when they’re down. And they’ll notice when we are. So…who’s backed away, faded away, fallen aside and left a gap where once there was a shield? If you’re not sure how to answer or if you can answer that question, you may need to reevaluate your commitment to FELLOWSHIP–the 2ndF of F3.

To be honest, we don’t often see a fight coming either. Nonetheless WE CAN PREPARE. A phrase I heard on Friday’s 43 Feet podcast really caught my attention: “RELATIONAL ARRHYTHMIA” Think about that. It is TOTALLY DESCRIPTIVE! The question that follows is: Are you out of sync? In your relationships with your M, your 2.0’s, and your F3 brothers you’ve got to be in rhythm. If you’re out, it’s called relational arrhythmia. Your M will tell you when you’re out if rhythm. Your 2.0’s will tell you when you’re out of rhythm, but what about other guys? On the 43 Feet Podcast Dark Helmet said, “Without the 3 P’s you do not have a shield lock and you’re not ready/prepared for the fight. What are the 3 P’s? In short:

1) PROXIMITY: You gotta see each other, there’s gotta be physical contact (elbows, forearms touch in a shield lock). Proximity builds trust. Meeting together with a real purpose. Proximity is key because until you’re beside a man, you don’t know how he feels. You might not even notice he’s backed away from the line.

2) PURPOSE: Meet together for mutual benefit and mutual defense. Why? Because we’ve all got to have 3-4 brothers to get thru the flux of life (fights/mountains/valleys). This is the living out of Ecclesiastes 4:12, “A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”

3) PERIODIC: The point the Dark Helmet was making here on the podcast was simply to lock down when you’re gathering, lock down EXACTLY when you’re going to get together and maintain a shield lock.

There’s a fight right around the corner, just waiting. Being prepared for it means being ready for the unexpected, while staying ready for the expected. The most important part of being ready for the fight is to be a part of a shield lock.

HIM shield lock with other men for mutual defense and mutual advantage.

YHC had a bunch of extras on his Weinke, like RR Tracks, Plank Pull Throughs, Ruck high Pulls, and, of course, Mary. However, time was called. Actually, we went into a little bit of OT; thanks for your patience, men. Great work today by all. The workout was harder than YHC thought it would be. But hey, we all completed 100 Ruck Squats, 100 Ruck Merkins, 100 Ruck American Hammers, & a 1 Mile Double-Deuce shuffle carrying 40 lbs.! Well done!

Once again we had double-digits. More often than not, that is happening and we’re no doubt on the verge of hitting some record numbers. So everybody KEEP POSTING. Awesome to see Ying Ying back out there again–he’s the only PAX in the Name-O-Rama that gets celebrated with onamonapia. Whaaat! Also, welcome Circuit, YHC was wondering if you were just a made-up “Unicorn” PAX who supposedly posted up when he was out. You’re real!

Number-Rama: Dirty Dozen

Announcements:

  • Fundraiser mentioned by Chairman, he will post it on the GroupMe.
  • PAX are to begin thinking through Memorial Day Mini, a bit of a CSAUP 2-hour workout at CHSP. Maps and recon suggested as each PAX is asked to bring a portion of the heat.

Prayers:

  • Jay, Bob, Brenda & Denny, Doubtfire’s friend/co-worker, and a few others were lifted up in prayer.

BOM

As always, it was an honor for YHC to Q it up. Site-Q’s don’t forget to add Doubtfire to your Q list for the cycle. Everyone, keep posting. Aye!

3rd F- 

I’m reading from a couple books right now, Along with some recommended articles. Last night while reading- the same phrase showed up in two different readings and I thought I’d share some on it this morning. 

-Esprit de Corps- 

“Esprit de corps is a French phrase that translates into ‘group spirit’. Esprit de corps is one of Henri Fayol’s 14 administrative principles. The principle states that an organization must make every effort to maintain group cohesion in the organization. It notes that dividing your competition is a clever tactic, but dividing your own team is a serious error.”

Probably the best example of esprit de corps can be seen in military. Especially those who have been in battle together.  A loyalty is formed from experiencing the good , bad and everything imaginable in between.     

For those of us who may not have served in that same capacity, it’s doesn’t mean we can not live our lives with the same loyalty. The same commitment to group spirit – whether that group is F3, workplace, a business, a team or your family.     

  The reality is that we as men are in battle and the challenge to each of us is – What is your commitment to creating cohesion in this areas? an environment that people desire to be a part of and know is always in charge, Leading and pressing forward. 

 The esprit de Corps is felt here, every gloom. Lead by men who choose to roll out and not roll over.  Who choose to sharpen others. Who choose to change. Who choose to even be a little vulnerable. Who choose to allow themselves to take what they learn here and use it through out their day to add value to everything they are involved in.   

So as you think of the esprit de corps -remember 

We leave no man behind. 

We never discourage , but encourage. 

Men want to achieve something that is hard, challenging and worth pursuing. 

When seeking leadership , goals to achieve and tasks to compete – we seek like minded – goal oriented men to achieve them with.  

And this is the brotherhood that F3 has created.  

‘ Esprit de corps ‘
