202 #HIM converged on Waxhaw today to officially launch F3 Waxhaw. We were able to include all 3 F’s into today’s event and appreciate all that were in attendance. Reiterating what Goodfella said this morning during COT, wanted to share with all to see what can happen when you join a group of men with a mission to Plant, Grow, and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community. In looking at how F3 Waxhaw came about here is some background:
Original site – Commitment started by Ice9 and
Thin Mint with the idea over a beer (just 1) to “Launch!”
Next site – Dromedary added by Bratwurst and Bananas
Sites grew from 1 to 2, to 6 and now we have 12+
sites / week
F3 Waxhaw has always found a way to serve and
give back to community such as
Debbie’s House Project, Monroe Men’s Shelter, Cuthbertson
MS Career Day, Sandbox Events, Downtown Waxhaw (“Angels”), Waxhaw Elementary
Cleanup, Christ Closet, 2 Pax & truck
Thanks to Transporter & Doc Mcstuffins for
initial leadership and creating the blue print
F3 Waxhaw Leadership Board
Bottlecap – energy, activity, passion to serve
Mad Dog – consistent strong leadership among the
pax, quiet strength
Posse – weasel shaking and Q School Leadership
Goodfella – vision, leadership, and consistent
motivation to keep pax going
Zinfandel – relentless COMZ, recruitment, social
Thin Mint & SOB Board – ability to help get
us band of misfits on our feet and endless support
Waxhaw Pax – all that contributed to make this a
successful event and awesome kickoff
Everyone that came out here today and supported
And now that we have covered the official report from
Goodfella. This is Foundation’s report
on F3 Waxhaw Launchvergence. Before
going into today’s overview, I think this group we have here has grown to be a
strong pax due ability to get after in the morning with 1st F
opportunity, find ways to bond both as a group via various jabs taken/given on
GroupMe, and through ability to collaborate and support the community in
multiple 3rd F opportunities.
As it was said on a recent podcast the biggest thing to remember is “Don’t forget to out at 5:30 in the morning
and be a complete idiot. Act like a
child. Fart and burp and make fun of the
Q and just let loose before you go home and gotta be a grown up.” So with that said, in typical F3 Waxhaw fashion
meow is today’s backblast.
Some how I was the only guy that would agree to have 5 guys
send them pictures of their weinkes and agree to give a full review/report. So here it goes:
Bottlecap: Weinke was sent via text. Initial message was short, but in subsequent
text it grew into form
Sent via screenshot the night before and appeared to be long, but day of
it he must have been in the pool as we experienced a little shrinkage. “I was in the pool!”
Dasher: Very short and to the point. In looking at it closer, it appears to
provide much discomfort
Goodfella: (Insert short joke here), but did
seem to cover a good amount of ground
Hollywood: Is known to be fast, but believe
someone has stage fright and still wont show their weinke. I will just have to fill in based on what I
suspect it looks like.
Pre 7:00 AM Report
Parking Lot Attendants at work arrived prior to
6:00 am to direct traffic.
Ackbar would be proud of Wedding Singer for
using his son’s Star Wars Light Saber as signal.
In typical SOB region fashion – Escobar pulls in
to lot and tosses keys to Parking attendant and says be sure keep car up
front. Sorry sir this is Union County we
2nd F area being setup with breakfast
spread / plenty of coffee
Smart move by the F3 Board to have Recalc
(respect) manning the area and ensuring no whipper snappers parking too close
to coffeteria area

you to all that donated and Christ Closet for allowing us to provide support.
Will be sure to include update in later backblasts

Speed for Need training taking place in lower
Multiple pre-run groups happening
Unconfirmed count for Pax needing Rudy’s Mr. Pinch First Nation Toilet services prior
Zinfandel has quick costume change and comes out
doing his best impersonation of Ringo Starr or would you say George Carling as Mr.
Conductor for today’s launch. This is not
what I think your parents were thinking when they said you should be an Engineer!
Don’t look now but here comes the Biker Gang
from Ft Mill rolling in. – Oh “biker” ….I’m
Shake & Bake (Darius Rucker) to sing
National Anthem never mind mic check
Short mosey to lower lot and circle up. As always in Waxhaw we are very safe so thank
you Bottlecap for wrapping up your DCCS briefing. If new to Waxhaw before each workout we are
sure to cover DCCS (Disclaimer/CPR/Cellphone/Safety Overview for morning workout)
briefing to ensure that we always identify who the people that we can turn to
in case ever needed in gloom. Luckily
today, each group had a pre-arranged Jock Strap to ensure our DCCS were covered
for each group. Now back to the warmup.
Side Straddle Hop x 15
Imperial Walker x 15
Merkins x 15
Mountain Climbers x 15

At completion of warmup break into 5 groups. Each being led by a Q / Wrangler / Jockstrap

Mike Tysons x10

1 Big Boy Situp / 4 American Hammer / 4 Merkins
Do 10 rounds increasing Big Boy Situps and American
Hammers each time until reach 10 /40 / 4
Give a 10 count and the Q/Wrangler confer and complete audible
#1. In my mind all while reciting – “Baby
(DW) seems we never ever agree, You like to run, and I like to circle up. You take things serious, and I take ‘em
light.” So in end we settle on:
2 lights up / 1 light back burpee at each light.
Complete the entire Moneyball trail and end up
in Middle School Parking lot.
A little mumblechatter from Dasher and his group that we encroached
upon their area, but as the pirate says in Captain Phillips – “Look at Me! I am the Captain Now!” so we claim our area and
begin next exercise:
Mike Tyson Webb:
1 Mike Tyson / 4 squats …..2 Mike Tysons / 8
squats and so on up to 10 Mike Tyson
Mosey towards front of school and at each light pole – 10 x t-merkins.

10 Mike Tyson’s
Run 20 yds and back
Mosey back to COT with approx. 3 miles complete for group
Official report is not in but, based on group leaders I
imagine it went like this.
Do some basic moves – oh let’s run.
What should we do next – I know “Let’s run” Ok, think we should do something to gather
the 6, lets do some burpees to sound of the train.
Here is a new exercise we can try – Run!
Let us see if we can run in circles.
We will be sure to update further once official report is provided
Bear /Carolina Dry Dock Webb
Bear Crawl 4 Count / 1 Dry Dock ….Bear Crawl 8 Count
/ 2 Dry Dock
Complete in circle until reach 10 Dry Dock / 40
At this point Ice 9 was either complaining due
to # of bear crawls or was singing 3 Doors Down – Kryptonite “I’ll keep you by
my side with my superhuman might Kryptonite, yea”
Since it was only heard once, twice, three
times from Italian Job “Just because you can do it, doesn’t mean you should” Wanted to be sure to include on the official
record for our Corporate TPS report.
Again appreciate all of the help of the TRUEbadour Pax and efforts going
in to the expansion of F3 globally! Big things to come.
Count off and we have 1…2….3…50….60…80….100…120…140…160…180…199…202 (based on few that left and others who came
Veteran move by Brat to remove the hospital name

Lost my $5 bet with Deflated on whether or not
Frack would last through all announcements or be in corner doing some crunches. But did hear he had difficulty holding the
camera throughout COT as he had to fully extend elbows vs. holding camera only ¼
