1 Year Back Blast!

365 days of F3 Columbus and just getting started!

After 1 Year we gathered regardless of the weather forecast and conditions. While some of our brothers were unable to join us due to spring break travel arrangements the PAX was well represented by the 14 HIMs that posted to get better!

PAX: Spotlight, Mariah, Kournikova (Respect), Savannah (Respect), Bumper (Respect), Wildebeest, Crossgrain, Kibbles, Gimpy, Crash, Tony Packo, Teach, Brain, and Bo Schembechler.

With a 3-way Q lined up attempting to rinse and repeat Beatdown 1 on 3.18.17 we split the responsibility and the results are being felt.

We kept Wildebeest’s family in our prayers as they prepare to welcome number 4 later this year.  Spotlight YHC asked for prayers for his father in law who is fighting cancer.

Wildebeest led us out in prayer asking for protection and guidance for not only our AO but for F3 men everywhere who were up early making themselves better.  Today was another reminder of why it feels so good to get up and punish your body with other men of like mind.

Green No Mo…

GREEN No Mo…
One year ago 21 local men were pulled out of their fartsacks by brothers from across this country. That morning a bunch of sickly, green, sad clowns posted to Antrim Park to attempt their first F3 workout (free, outside, all-men). Much to the surprise of us all we survived. The next few weeks we continued to meet on Saturday morning at the leadership of our Vetren F3 Brothers from NC. After which we were left to take up the flag, headlock Columbus, and get better.
One Saturday at a time we met in the warm weather, getting familiarized with terms, cadence, do’s, and dont’s, and we by no means were perfect. As the fall approached a growing fear of the fridgide temperatures began to be expressed. With no plan, no reason, and no thought we pushed on. Temperatures dropping but locations and new faces posting. Yes we had an FNG in -4° temps.
As we slowly, extremely slowly, climb our way out of winter we are weathered, we are tested, and we have been tried. The model of F3 workouts, fellowship, and even faith have challenged each member of the PAX to be better, getting right, as a man, husband, and father.
Saturday March 17th we will only have 1 workout. All of the AOs together from 0700-0800 @ the original place we first turned green The Theater (aka Antrim Park). We will conquer the 1st year mark together, stronger, and better than 364 days ago!
Please join us (Facebook event Link) as we celebrate, if you haven’t been come “Get Green” with F3 Columbus. We won’t let you stay that way. Continue reading “Green No Mo…”

Band of Brothers BB

After 5 days far from the PAX encouraging the forming core of F3 Dayton #giveitaway

QIC: YHC: Bo Schembechler

PAX: Grovetucky, Crossgrain, Mogul, Jumper (weighted down), Francis, Ahhh, and Wildebeest

Time away can spur some creativity, this morning was no exception. YHC came ready to take full advantage of the warm air 66° and dry morning.

0530 gave some rendition of a disclosure, followed by a brief delay as YHC decided to move… Mosey started and white lights pulled in, circling back to find Mogul prepared to work the PAX did a slow short mosey to a gloomy corner of the soccer field.

COT

SSH- ic x30

Copper Head squats- ic x20

Sun God’s – during instructions

Claps- ic x25

Merkins – sc x25

The Thang

Circled up in Plank, each member completed x3 Merkins in round robin fashion. Once completed they were to run the field to the outhouse, retrieve 2 (Dos) Bricks, and return to plank position.

Rinse and Repeat

Once each member of PAX had 3-4 bricks they were to assemble a platform.

Step ups – x25 each leg (50 count)

Side Step ups- x10 each leg (20 count)

Merkins- sc x20

YHC split 8 into 2 groups of 4… One group assembled across field while second group picked up bricks and with them pressed overhead marched them to the first group. This continued until 32 bricks had moved from point A to point B.

While moving first group completed multiple movements

Merkins- sc x25

Squats- x25

Brick press- x25

Tricep press- xburnout

Curls- x25

More stuff until group 2 completed task.

Groups switched positioning and first group moved bricks from point B back to Point A while group 2 completed unknown amount of similar movements until all bricks had been returned.

Once task was Complete PAX re assembled in Plank position and completed x3 Merkins in round robin fashion grabbed 2 bricks and returned them to area around outhouse.

Once returned PAX assembled a bucket line and passed bricks to be stacked. Upon completion PAX assembled for x30 SSHs to punch the clock at 0615.

As always an honor to lead, be pushed, and challenged by the PAX.

Our hearts are broken and prayers are strong for the family of Jerome Gonzalez who passed during the Joe Warner GoRuck Heavy at Ft. Bragg this past week.

YHC,

Bo Schembechler
