The Thang

Perform as many exercises by randomly drawing a card from the F3 Deck of Cards.  Perform the exercise at one of the four corner-stations of the parking lot, depending on the suit:

Clubs (Station 1)  Core Exercises performed in Cadence or for time.

Diamonds (Station 2) Upper Body Exercises

Hearts (Station 3) Cardio Exercises

Spades (Station 4) Legs

A pax will draw a card from the deck.  He will read out loud the name of the card, the exercise, and the number of reps.  Pax will mosey to the appropriate station and perform the exercise OYO.  Pax will hold the six until everyone is finished.  Another Pax will draw a card and repeat the process.  Continue to rinse and repeat until 6:00am. Whenever a Club card is drawn Q will lead the exercise in cadence or monitor time for plank exercises.

Circle of Trust

It was about overcoming Obstacles. I was dealing with a cold that was keeping me from posting for the last three days.  I did everything I could to shorten the duration of the cold, but still felt too weak to workout.  On the fourth day I was scheduled to Q and wasn’t sure how I was going to make it out.  I had to stop listening to all my negative thoughts and instead I determined that I’m going to set aside the doubts and get out and do my best.  With that, I was able to lead the above workout.  My thoughts are that we have to get through Obstacles by not looking at our problems as giants.  Sometimes we just need a push through, otherwise you will not find yourself in a desirable circumstance.  Don’t let your fears get the best of you; step out in faith.

Very happy to be with my F3 brothers after fighting a cold and not being able to post earlier in the week.  I heard lots of good comments about using the F3 Deck of Cards.  We all had a great workout together.
