QIC had missed the PAX recently and what better way to show love than through burpees.

Burp and Merk – Beginning with 1 burpee and 1 merkin OYO, progress up the ladder of mekins adding 1 each round. Next set is 1 burpee with 2 merkins, then 1 burpees with 3 merkins, and so on until reaching 10 merkins.

Burp Back Mountain – Partner up at the bottom of the hill. Partner 1 begins doing burpees while partner 2 runs backwards up the hill and back, then switch. Goal was 100 cumulative buprees per group.

Bupree Dans – A burpee twist on Lt Dans. OYO begin with 4 walking lunges, then 1 burpee. Proceed up the burpee ladder adding 1 each round. Next set is 4 walking lunges with 2 burpees, then 4 walking lunges with 3 burpees, and so on until reaching 10 burpees.

Global Warming – Circle up with space in between. Everyone drops into a Al Gore with 1 PAX doing 5 burpees and then dropping back to Al Gore while the next PAX does 5 burpees. Proceeding around the circle holding Al Gore until all the PAX have done 5 burpees.

3 minutes to spare so why not.

Flutter kicks IC – Original goal was 30 but Honeysuckle informed QIC that 50 were done on Tuesday so the PAX were led IC to 60 flutter kicks for good measure.

CIRCLE OF TRUST – Welcome Kiffin visiting from GA

YHC has been very out of pocket lately. I cannot express how appreciative and truly blessed I am to have such an amazing group of men in my life, even when I can’t make it out. Texts, Slack messages, or simply seeing PAX out and about who ask how things are going and offer some encouragement is what it’s all about. Seasons of life will change, some easier than others. I’m in a season since July where making it out to every bootcamp as I did for the past 2 years has been tough. Those seasons are when you really get a sense of what F3 gives you that you may take for granted. Staying in shape (1st F) is achievable on your own but you can’t ride solo on the 2nd or 3rd F that we all need in our lives. This morning I was reminded of how much I need the fellowship and how grateful I am for all the men of F3 NETN.
