THE SCENE: 55 degrees of perfect gloom.
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
SSH x 20
Cherry pickers x 7
Tempo Squats x 10.
Simple Dora today. One pax bear crawls to the halfway point cones, then sprints to the end and does 20 LBC’s. Spring back to the halfway point, and then reverse lunge to the line where the other pax are working.
Exercises were as follows and yes, some did make it back to thrusters.
- Thrusters x 100.
- Curls x 200.
- Goblet squats x 300.
Just to make sure that KY’s thighs were okay, we did more goblet squats to Sally, and then OH press to Thunderstruck.

9 HIMs got better. Welcome Pitstop!
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Proverbs 18:24 – “A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” There is an epidemic of male loneliness that exists all over this world. Many men have lots of acquaintances, but very few friends and that can be dangerous. I want you to notice that this loneliness and the importance of friendship is even portrayed in film, as well as the Scriptures. In two of my favorite westerns, Tombstone (which is the best) and Wyatt Earp, friendship is a powerful theme. In Wyatt Earp, Wyatt is having to sober Doc up quick. He knows that he is unpopular with many, but Doc tells Wyatt, “I know its not easy being my friend, but I will be there when you need me.” The truth is Doc made good on his promise. When Wyatt’s brothers were shot, Doc helped Wyatt pursue justice. In Tombstone, after a major gunfight, Creek Johnson asks Doc, “Why are you doing this anyway Doc, you ought to be in bed.” Doc was of course looking very sick at the moment, but responds “Wyatt Earp is my friend.” Creek Johnson retorts, “Hell, I’ve got lots of friends.” And with a sadness that should grip us, Doc replies, “I don’t.” I want to make three observations here. First, all of us need friends, and there is none better than the Lord Jesus Christ who died to save sinners. He knows every messed up detail of your life, but if you are wondering how good of a friend He is, just remember that He knew our shortcomings and yet died for believers anyway. That’s an impressive friend. Second, I want every man at F3 to know that I am here for y’all. Fellowship is not just some throw away term. The reason I get up early even though I hate it, and the reason I come and workout even though I suck at it and hate it, is because I know there will be men there to encourage me and that those same men need encouragement. Heck, if you got a problem, then I will do like Espy did for me one morning and we can pre-ruck and talk. I just want every man to know that I care, and I will listen. Don’t suffer alone men. We were created for community. We were created for friendship, a friendship forged on the anvil of shared suffering and pushing ourselves to be a little better than we were yesterday. F3 and the relationships and friendships I have made has changed my life for the better, and so to close, I just want to say thanks. God bless y’all, and if you need a friend, or if its been a while since you have come out to party in the gloom, then come back out. We all need friends and brothers. #ISI
