The Circuit @ Brick City Back Blast

As YHC rustled out of bed the reality that he was only minutes away from missing the self assigned Q. With no thought the scramble began and the message of “COMIN IN HOT” went out to those who awaited in the gloom.

Finding a frozen windshield on this early morning was beyond discouraging, a crisp 32 degrees, plenty of opportunity to complain, to give up, to quit after the winter seems to be dragging on. But making the way to the AO arriving promptly at 0530 to 2 HIMs (GIMPY & JUMPER) awaiting instructions, a gladness of not being alone, of mutual suffering overtook YHC.

Flag planted, a slight warm-up stretch with Teach’s, Cotton Pickers (grassgrabbers? F3 Louisville), and we were off on our mosey.

Down under broad, we arrived to our first set.
Step ups OYO(15 each leg), Dips OYO x15, Erkins OYO x15 (wash, rinse, repeat) Mosey
Arriving at a slight incline YHC decided on 3 man circuit.
Bear Crawl, Merkins, LBCs each man moving until tagged by man in motion. (wash, rinse, repeat x3) Mosey
Finding an even steeper incline PAX jostled their way up to road side, down, and back up to really work them legs. Mosey
Finding a wall nearly navel high YHC decided to repeat first movements.
Step ups OYO(15 each leg), Dips OYO x15, Erkins OYO x15  Mosey
Coming to a hault at the steps a 2nd 3 man circuit began.
RUN (really run) Up steps around and back down, 1 man plank, 1 man 10count (wash, rinse, repeat x3) Mosey

MARY @ Flag
Am. Hams ic x30
Flutter Kicks ic x25
Oblique Raises (L,R) ic x15each

Ended with a quick hit about complaining (email coming soon) why do we complain? Do we not see what we already have? How far we’ve come? Let’s push through this frozen spring with resolve to get better brothers! (YHC, led out in prayer to my king & savior Jesus)

3 AO’s tomorrow GET TO ONE!

QIC:Bo Schembechler

PaX: crossgrain, ball bearing, ahhh

There was a few things that happened but this clip on Instagram says it all!

F3. Fitness. Fellowship. Faith. We workout to better ourselves not just for health reasons but to be the solid ground for someone who needs it. We aim to encourage all those around us. We build up our bodies so we can do what we can to pick you up when you need it. One thing I’ll never forget a pax member told another many years ago “im physically strong enough to lift my wife up but I’m not mentally strong enough to lift her up when she’s down emotionally.” F3 has helped with that and to us that a far greater accomplishment than any fitness goals you can imagine. . . #fitness #fellowship #faith #instafit #fitstagram #workout #columbus #ohio #youvsyou #motivation #dedication #free99 #ironsharpensiron #f3counts #fruitofthegloom #whileyouweresleeping #americanpride #asseenincolumbus

Entered the gloom at 0526 and mumblechattered with Francis. At 0529, Francis and I saw 3 PAX approaching in the distance all rucked up.

QIC:   Spotlight

PAX:   Bo Schembechler, Crossgrain, Francis, Wildebeast, Jumper, Ahhh, Teach

Weather:   30 degrees with a lot of ice.

YHC learned from Grovetucky that if you’re going to lead in January you better have a contingency plan.  YHC got to the AO early and found it was better suited for ice hockey than what he had planned.  A quick trip around the AO and a new plan began to take shape.  As the PAX showed up ready to work the hot topic was the balmy 30 degree weather.

At 5:30 the PAX began their mosey to the lower bowl and better footing.  Along the way Bo picked up Jumper (who doesn’t have GPS).  Once we navigated the steps and got to the grass the COP began
