Basketball Drill –

Each PAX picks a corner while One pax will be shooting foul shots and getting their own rebounds while others are at a corner doing a specific exercise. 

1- American Hammers 

2-Squats 

3- High Plank 

4- Mountain climbers 

Once 3 foul shots are made , everyone switches to next station.  If you take too long to make shots- you can bear crawl the length of the basketball court…..

We got in 2 full rotations. 


3rd F- No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.’ Hebrews 12:11 
Disciplines of Fitness.  Faith.  Fellowship. 

Fitness– self explanatory. Stay steady. We all have seen, felt and experienced the results of discipline in this area by being consistent with F3. And for those who haven’t… you can Start now.

Faith– it isn’t always easy to believe in the unseen Or even what’s been promised.   But when focused enough it can be seen. Choose daily to see the good through the even roughest times. 

Fellowship– this can be ever challenging with schedules, commitments , priorities , families, work, etc.   but staying disciplined to healthy fellowship with men who empower and sharpen each other will in turn keep you sharper and allow you to add value to all those around you.  By committing to stay disciplined in this area- you may open yourself to vulnerability. But it your peaks and valleys of life this proper fellowship will be what helps navigate us through.  

Mosey across park to stairs. 


‘Stair Drill’

Pair up.  

One man stays down and does burpees while partner runs up steps. Does 10 merkins and 20 LBCs then run down stairs and switch. Continue until your team has done 60 burpees.

Use the QSource

Today I decided to sprinkle in some references from f3Nation site and QSource, as we get into the routine of showing up and running through these workouts- we need to keep in mind how and why we are here. And the importance of the mission and credo of F3.

Starting with this lovely piece of writing…..

F3- We welcome men of all fitness levels to our workouts and have no requirement for membership other than that you show up at the appointed time and place and follow what the workout leader (the “Q” in F3 lingo) does.

The F3 Credo is: Leave no man behind, but leave no man where you find him.

  • •Are held outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold
  • •Are led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary
  • •End with a Circle of Trust

Mosey back to pavilion. 


Circle up and Repeat the 25 merkins/ prisoner squat rotation

50 LBC oyo

Mosey back to basketball courts.

An F3 Core Principle is to end each Workout with a Circle Of Trust, what we call the COT. Like most things F3, the COT was not part of the original design. It evolved to fill a need. Men told us that they didn’t feel right just jumping in their cars after the Workout without some type of minor ceremonial send off. So we conjured up the COT, which is where we recognize each man individually and say a brief prayer.

Within the COT, we often find ourselves asking the Creator for help at being better husbands, fathers, friends, mentors and workers. We don’t know the source of this particular petition, it just came about and seemed to spread across F3Nation. It is a recognition that as men, we yearn to be better at the things we were created to be, and have learned the hard way that we cannot do it alone. We need help. We need truth that is hard-earned and hard-learned. We need Wisdom.

But which of us is wise? How do we know what we are hearing is Wisdom and not the song of a fool? How are we to discern the voice of the shepherd from that of the wolf?

Because the Q is a Leader who takes responsibility for the Outcome, he is also a man who seeks help answering these questions. In turn, because he is part of a Community, he is obligated to help other men find them as well. The source of the Q’s Wisdom, the QSource, is best discovered through the mutual iron-sharpening that occurs when people unite and search for answers together, the old-fashioned way.’

It is apparent to me every workout that each of us have the ability to lead. Ability to pull strength from each other and make each of us better HIM. It’s isnt just the Q who leads… it is the man who responds to what is inside him and lifts another man to where he is capable.

DISRUPTION (F1)

Disturbance To The Status-quo

Leaders influence movement to advantage

A leader is a person who can influence people to do things that they would not have done otherwise. Put another way, but for the influence of the leader, the things done by his followers would not happen. The leader is the agent, the impetus and the proximate cause of his followers’ movement toward the doing of those specific things that he identifies as advantageous. Without him, they would remain static and focused on maintaining the status quo. In the heart of man inertia will reign—absent a Disruption .

The connection between movement and leadership is critical because it presupposes a need for action, a recognition by the leader himself that the status quo is something less advantageous than some other place, a location the leader visualizes and then articulates to his followers. Only then can the leader begin to persuade them to follow him to the new place. He must describe it to them first because people will only overcome their inertia and follow someone if they believe that he knows where he is going. They won’t leave the known for the unknown, no matter how charismatic the leader is.

Because it induces movement, leadership causes Disruption

Leadership wrenches people away from the place at which they were determined to remain. It causes them to question the foundation for their belief that their status quo was desirable and that stasis was in their best interest. It attacks the palpable (but false) sense of security that inertia provides. Like the agitator in a washing machine, leadership dislodges things long embedded in people’s emotional fabric, things that are impure and do not belong there but to which they had become accustomed—like a ketchup stain on their favorite shirt.

Being both Disruptive and agitating, leadership will naturally make people uncomfortable, at least until they begin to see for themselves that they are being led to a place of advantage.

If a man calls himself a leader but does not cause Disruption by initiating movement, then he is not practicing leadership. He might be doing something else, like managing or governing, but he is not leading. He is a leader in name only until people begin to follow him to an advantageous place that he has visualized and articulated to them. A Leader is a person who influences movement to advantage.

A great Leader’s legacy is built on love

The degree to which a Leader is able to influence movement is dependent upon his level of skill. People will follow a Leader when he is in the room. People will continue to follow a good Leader when he has left the room. But only a great Leader is able to influence movement to advantage even after he has died. That is a legacy Leader, and he is a rare breed who leaves a legacy that is built upon love.

All great Leaders aspire to leave a legacy. Leadership is a difficult skill to master, requiring desire, commitment and love. Having paid for that skill with blood, sweat and tears, great Leaders have the natural inclination to pass on what they have learned and to be remembered for it. This yearning is what creates their legacy. It comes from the Leader’s love for his followers and his sincere desire to see them obtain advantage.

A great Leader accelerates throughout his life. He views leadership as a craft that must be honed through continual study and application. In the way that a lawyer or doctor practices his profession from the standpoint of service to his client or patient, the great Leader’s focus is always upon his followers rather than himself. It is their best interests, not his, that motivates his actions. It is their advantage, not his, to which he initiates movement. This is only possible if, first and foremost, he loves them more than he loves himself.

The great Leader knows that If his love is not great, than neither will be his leadership.

“ITS ALL IN YOUR MIND “

Whatever you hold in your mind will tend to occur in your life. If you continue to believe as you have always believed , you will continue to act as you have always acted. If you continue to act as you have always acted , you will continue to get what you have always gotten. If you want different results in your life or your work, all you have to do is change your mind.

So get rid of your old neg thoughts challenge yourself everyday. Do something you would have not done the yesterday. Keep showing up in the Gloom and striving to be better hen you were the day before.

Break for Third F Message

So often we find ourselves paralyzed by worry when God reminds us that worrying adds no value, fixes no problem, and ultimately creates more damage in difficult situations. Surrendering our burdens to God doesn’t mean that he will fix every problem like a genie in bottle, but it does mean that he hears our concern and wants to carry our burden for us. We need to cast our cares and have the faith that God truly cares for us. Whether the challenge is finances, health, family, relational, etc., we need to remember that worry adds zero value and only intensifies the issue at hand. Living worry free does not mean that you are “care-free.” We must work like it depends on us and pray like it depends on God. There is true freedom in prayer, petition, and thanksgiving.

Philippians 4:6

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Luke 12:25-31

25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life[a]? 26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

27 “Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! 29 And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. 30 For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them.31 But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.

Back At It!
