Thermometer said 43 this morning as 17 brave men got introduced to something that has never been done before…. I call it… the “Singletator”
Before the Pax were ready for the Singletator, a little care was given to warm up the body and the shoulders.
SSH 20 IC
PLANK SHOULDER TAPS 10 IC
With blood now flowing to our shoulders, I took a little time to explain the origins of the Singletator. Singlet, who just recently moved to Texas, was an Army recruiter who brought many outstanding exercises to F3 workouts in our Region. The Motivator – for instance – which is done at our AO pretty frequently – was introduced by Singlet. During his farewell Q, Singlet left us will 4 shoulder exercises that we repeated over and over and over…. The Shoulder Pretzel, Overhead Claps, Picking Cherries, and Dropping in the Bucket. If there was only something that would take the counting scheme of the Motivator, but be able to recreate the shoulder burn of the 4 exercises…. and thats how the Singletator was born.
YHC called, “Next Exercises… The Singletator …. from 7”
7 shoulder pretzels, 7 overhead claps, 7 count picking cherries, 7 count dropping them…. 6 shoulder pretzels, 6 overhead claps, 6 count picking cherries, 6 count dropping them, and so on. After the was finished, many Pax agreed that attempting the Singletator from 8 would be downright foolish.
HIGH KNEES 20 IC
THROUGH THE TUNNEL 10 IC
Partner up, need one block for each group. Mosey to the base of Tombstone Hill. Dora styled workout, one Pax working on reps, one running to the top of the hill and back. Cumulative Counts

Most of the Pax were most of the way through the Pull Through Merkins when time was called to head back to the amphitheater.
A few more minutes…
Next exercises, the Shoulder Tap 20 IC.
too many shoulder exercises, too little time!
CIRCLE OF TRUST
YHC encouraged everyone to find- wait – not find time – because its not hidden – to make time during this Easter season to focus on things important to us. I must confess that if someone took a catalog of how a spend my time, and I made a list of things most important to me…. a few things may line up…. but several wouldn’t. And that’s my fault. Please make time for the things that are most important to you – and if the Easter season means anything to you, chances are pretty good that it deserves more attention and time. I know thats true of me.
Convergence at Iron Valley – Saturday at 7am
Iron Horse will be open at 6am, but make every effort to make it to Erwin.
