THE SCENE: Warm mid 50s
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
10 SSH (IC), 8 Imperial Squat Walkers (IC), did a quick mosey through circuit 2 with 5 reps of each exercise, but only two body builders.
This was a battle-buddy style beatdown from start to finish. Two circuits were in place, one with CMUs, while the other was running + PT. After AO loop was completed, PAX switched and picked up where left off.
Circuit 1: each Pax had 2 CMU, PT was completed with 1 CMU, farmer carry both CMU 10m to next station:
- Blockees x10
- Thrusters x20
- Curls x30
- CMU swings x15
- Tricep extensions x20
- CMU flutter kicks x50
Circuit 2: Run from AO to Apex, complete AO lab with the following PT nested within:
- 15 Mountain Man Poopers
- 15 Diamond Merkins
- 40 1x Iron Mikes
- 20 Merkins
- 20 Jump Squats
- 10 Body Builders
We kept up with the BB theme. One PAX completed the following core work while the other participated in a CMU wall sit. We did this for 10 minutes.
- 15 Box Cutters
- 20 1x Peter Parker

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
“About thirty years ago there was much talk that geologists ought only to observe and not theorise; and I well remember some one saying that at this rate a man might as well go into a gravel-pit and count the pebbles and describe the colours. How odd it is that anyone should not see that all observation must be for or against some view if it is to be of any service!” — Charles Darwin
I was asked to interpret this quote last Friday. While it’s intended for science, the applicability of this quote has relevance to this time. Every day we make observations, but many times we let them stay as observations. Sometimes this is okay.. but if we extend this quote to our lives today, I think what Darwin is linking is the connection between observation and action. Observations of rocks are useless without taking action into how and why the observations matter. In the same way, F3 nation seeks to inspire HIM who not only can make observations, but transform those observations into actions to make our communities a better place. Let’s not be passive, but instead take a stand for justice and truth in our communities, and inspire others to do the same.
The mumblechatter was high today! Good work everyone.
Drifter moving party next week.
