Natural Ice Lead the PAX on a mosey around the lawn while I got the Computer setup

A continuation from Monday at Westeros, we enlisted the godfather of F3 Tony Horton to lead us in a Plyometrics (Jump Training) Workout.

The word of the day was: SOFT LANDINGS PAM!!!

Here is a link to the workout if your so inclined to do it again: ia601900.us.archive.org/15/items/img-2024/IMG_1986.mp4

Moseyed back to Startex for a 10 burpee buy out and 5 mins of Mary


Natural Ice had a good word about how working out is better with friends. P90X has it’s place, but doing it alone is a challenge. He challenged all of us to find those Sad Clowns in our life and bring them out to F3. Good word brother.


Manly Mile tomorrow at Green Machine for those tough enough
UFC 300 watch party 4/13 in Hendersonville. Check 2ndf for all the details


Prayers for the families of the Covenant School as today marks the 1 yr anniversary.

Thanks as always the honor to lead. Tony will make a guest appearance again, but not for a while.


Endless Reps, Together

AO: the-knoll
Q: El Capitan
PAX: morning star, El Capitan, Wolfpack, Sooie, Malibu, Merchant, Right Said, Link (2.0), Bumblebee (2.0)
FNGs: None
CONDITIONS: Decent weather for ducks, but at least we had 70s Rock to listen to. :the_horns:

WARMUP: Caboose-is-loose run to the top of Harpeth Knoll hill. At top of hill, all PAX will do together:

-10x 3-count merkins
-10x 3-count squats

Turn around & return to playground. Split up into two teams & line up at playground.


Phase 1:

Each PAX team will perform the following “endless” exercises …
– Lunges
– Leg Raises on back
– Carolina Dry Docks
– Freddy Mercuries

One PAX will long jump to opposite end zone lamp, high knees back. Rotate until all PAX have completed the mosey, then move on to the next exercise. Rinse, repeat.

Phase 2:

Mosey to flood table.

All PAX perform “endless” dips while one PAX runs to backstop & back. Exercise is complete when all PAX have completed backstop mosey.

Phase 3:

A Cool Down Stretch!

– Butterflies with deep breathing sequence
– Straight-leg stretch
– Child’s pose (my favorite)
– Downward dog / arch
– Viper
– Power Push-up Stretch
– Deep calf stretch
– Back twist


I struggle with anxiety, especially when it comes to finances. Recently, we’ve had several (expensive) things hit my family at once which has caused me to reflect… do I trust that God will take care of us? As a Christian, do I believe Jesus’ words when He tells His disciples to “consider the birds of the air & the flowers of the field” and “does not Your Father provide for them”? I challenged the PAX to consider their personal anxieties, and to give them up to the Lord who knows & cares for them.


– #PreHab will continue each morning at 5:15 unless otherwise notified by morning star
– That Mile :grimacing: is happening at greenmachine Thursday. I will be offering a slightly (but only just) less difficult workout at the-knoll.
– Plankril is less than a week away… One minute plank on April 1st (no fooling), add 6 seconds each day after that.


Prayer requests were shared amongst the PAX. We closed in a moment of silent reflection & prayer, followed by Sooie Brewie.

I’m so thankful for y’all.

Plankpril is approaching

Tortoise & Hare

AO: thestronghold
Q: Red Skull
PAX: Crawlspace, Hacker (Franklin), Michelin Man, Chunks, Judy, Decaf, Army Surplus, Yak, Frozen, Westside, Pacer, Trajectory, C Sharp, Triple Sevens, Blitz, Sgt Meatball, Training Wheels
FNGs: 1 Training Wheels
CONDITIONS: Wet and Soggy

WARMUP: SSH, IW, Squat, Leg Stretch, WMH

THE THANG: A perfect day at The Stronghold. The wet weather created a little adversity which provided the opportunity for us all to choose between an attitude of joy or frustration. The train created a disruption that allowed us all the chance to choose between doing the right harder thing or taking an easier shortcut.

MOLESKINE: Over the past week, we have let five men go from this current class (from 15 to 10) as we continue to weed out those that are not yet ready to take this opportunity seriously. Those five men are now back in uncomfortable, unsafe and even dangerous situations. Hopefully we will see those men come back and try again with a future class.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: The Tennessee vs. Alabama showdown is less that two weeks away. Help TN defend the flag by showing up on Saturday 4/6, 6:30am at Pinkerton Park in Franklin. Check middle-tn for more details.

COT: Prayers for the men at 4:13 Strong and for those that are no longer with us.
