Here we stop to ask Spam what the next exercise is going to be. “One burpee, OYO,” is the confident reply.
10 burpees OYO. AND….we’re 10 minutes into the workout.
OBT would be happy to know that I’m still using what he taught me to bring the pain to our newest F3 Florence AO!

Partner Up. Partner A does exercise while Partner B runs to target point. Swap out and continue the exercise until all reps are complete. 50 Burpees/100 Overhead Claps/150 Merkins/200 Big Boy Situps/250 Squats
*We had one team of 3 due to an odd number this morning. The remedy? The 2 PAX doing exercises at same time only counted the highest rep (though most of the time Chickenhawk and Spam were only about 2 reps away from one another). Strong work!
Mosey to flower bed.
10 Step-ups Each Leg

Thank you for the opportunity to lead you today brothers! Rumble is looking strong…2 FNGs today…one of those EH’d after only one post! Awesome job Flo! Flo and Booger, both of you guys are in the running for Monkey’s FNG prize. Even though I was filling in for what was likely to be an epic beatdown by Spirit Fingers, I hope that you’ll each be thanking (or hating) me in the days to come. 4 PAX had some great Rumble fellowship at Venus, but were disappointed to see Ginger abandoned at KJ’s…next time you need to join us at the best coffeteria in town!
As I mentioned in COT, today would have been the 43rd birthday of my Brother-in Law, Heath Atkinson. It’s still hard at times to believe he has been gone for over 2 years now. I still have moments that I see something that I want to text him about, or call him with a question (since he always had the answer). I appreciate this brotherhood that allows me to get stronger physically and spiritually. I appreciate that I have brothers that can hold me accountable, and can push me, and can be there for support. Each one of you is what makes F3 so great.
- Sign up to Q for 1st and 3rd https://f3florence.org/) Go to the Menu and click on Q Calendar. Type your name in an open area next to a workout date. There are rumors about an upcoming Q School…be on the look-out!
- Prayers for many PAX Family Members
- Prayers for my sister and Heath’s family, as I know that birthdays and anniversaries such as these can be very difficult.
- There’s an F3 Anniversary approaching! June 2nd…we will converge at Scrooge! (in other words…no Rumble that day!). We are hoping for a very Anniversary-worthy beatdown by some of your favorite, pain (I mean, effort)-producing Qs!
