So for my 62nd Q I had nothing planned until I was just about to close my eyes for bed last night. I’m exhausted, sore and I’m hoping for some amazing recovery in the next 6ish hours of sleep. Recalc called me in from the bullpen Wednesday and it was perfect timing because I needed a “boost” at the end of the week after the journey I have started.
If you aren’t following my every move, why not? Jk. I’m currently in the middle of completing all 9 workouts that we have to offer in the same week + a 2nd or 3rd F activity = 10. I’m struggling with what to name it but hoping to be enlightened along the way with inspiration. A few dudes have offered a few ideas which was mostly been helpful for the category of “what not to name it”. Dime Bag, Full Circle, Double Nickel, Postmaster, Local Legend….anyone have anything else to offer?
Roll up to the site to ensure enough stones are in the pile for my plan. See the Swarm crew getting it on in and thankful I couldn’t do that workout. Wolverine is too fast. 6ft DiCCS given. Let’s roll…
Mosey to the long road towards the high school. Stopping along the way for the following.
1. 20 x SSH IC
2. 15 x Imperial Walker IC
3. 10 x Morroccan Night Club IC
4. 10 x Merkins IC
5. 20 x Deep Slow Squats CC
6. 20 x 6” Plank Jacks IC
7. Jimmy Dugan
8. Calf Stretch
9. Can Opener & Runners Pose
Mosey to back of the high school and find some bench. 30 x dips, 15 x inclined Merkins and a lap around the big island. Rinse and repeat 2 times. More like 1.5 times and we lost Akbar inside the great trench in the parking lot. Twisted ankle to start the weekend and a great reminder that we are still only in the 2nd week of January!!
Mosey towards big parking lot for some 4 corners with laps and rocks. When you have your rock: 20 of each: overhead press, tricep extensions and curls. Corner 1 otherwise is 20 x big boys, C2 20 x heels to heaven, C3 20 x bicycles and C4 is 20x american knockouts. Run up, run back, grab your rock and run back.
Mosey down to Rudy’s Poop Palace. Find some wall. 20 of each: Jabs. Air Presses. Toe Lifts. Quick Break to shake legs. Back on wall. Jabs. Air Presses. Heel Lifts. Burner.
Closing in on time. Stop for 20 x Speedskaters at each light. And that’s time!!
Lord knows no one wants another soapbox from me about form because we don’t need it anymore. Literally everyone is no longer modifying, right? Who knows.
Today I will use my soapbox to remind you to keep going. Keep posting, keep pushing and use that sore/depressed/exhausted/frustrated feelings to keep getting your ass out of bed. Lots of new guys and lots of people seeking positive change in their lives. Whether that’s fitness, happiness, weight loss, friends or a little of the above. Or none of those but at least something that keeps you motivated.
Most guys have been posting long enough to realize where they are in the “pack” during a run. Who are you chasing? Have you started eye balling a pax when they show up in the AM with the goal to stick with him? Eventually to pass them? Don’t pick a gazelle, unless you are a gazelle, but lock on someone each workout. Those are reasonable goals you can see progress each day.
Same idea with completing the next Merkin-Air Press Webb goal! No modifications for an entire week of posting goal! Hours of sleep goals! Reduction of carbs/sweets goals! Dragging your kids to workout in the evening goals! Stress reduction goals! Happiness and sex goals with the wife! Do I have your attention? Spurred some ideas? I hope so.

July 14th, 2018 is when I started at F3 and I weighed 262lbs. 2.5 years later my fitness goals are a thing of the past for the most part and all the other goals I have now are for more happiness in all aspects of my life. Set goals. Edit goals. Edit goals again. Achieve. Fail. Reset. You got this.
Thanks to Bypass for the reintroduction as part of the 6th man, welcome Inspector Gadget and thanks to our friend Akbar aka Ankles for taking us out!
4 x workouts tomorrow!
