15 pax showed to push the rock  at The Storm this morning.  No FNGs, so let’s get to work!


10 Burpees

The Thang:

Short mosey to the roundabout that is just in front of the school.  This would be where the fun would start.  Yesterday evening, Breaker Breaker put out the need for Qs in the month of July.   The pax responded and filled up the remaining spots, except for today.   I initially thought I would take it, but hesitated hoping that someone else would step in and take this Q.  I had planned to post at The Storm today anyway, so I really didn’t have an excuse to not take it.  I mention to the pax about stepping up and helping the site Qs, so time to lead by example.  I didn’t have a clue as to what to do today, so I started going through some of my past Qs  to get some ideas.  The Iron Pax Challenge is one of the first ones that I got to.  This was introduced last year by F3 Greenwood, and is a favorite of mine.  This is a challenging workout that will push you. Time to introduce it to the Storm.  At the roundabout you complete 5 exercises.  50 Squats, 40 LBCs, 30 Merkins, 20 Jump Lunges (count right leg), 10 Burpees.  Then run up the hill to the roundabout at the main road, and back down to the start.  This is done for 4 rounds.   This is definitely a challenge, and climb up the hill added to the misery. Everyone pushed hard.   Good work men!

After a short recovery, fellowship mosey to the front of the school.  Here 4 exercises are called.

Hip Slappers 10 (IC)

Dips 10 (IC)

Step-Ups 10 (IC)

Derkins 10 (IC)

We did 3 rounds of the 4 exercises.  Time running short, fellowship mosey to the flag.  Here YHC called 22 Merkins for the vets.  Time!!



7/20 2.0 workout at Folsom, 7/20 Tubing,

Prayer Request



Appreciate the chance to lead today.  I encourage everyone to Q a workout.  Here I was looking for a reason not to, and it was the push I needed today.  Thankful for all the men of F3 Gastonia.  Keep pushing!!
