Now Brothers, go fight for the ones you love

Now Brothers, go fight for the ones you love

Three ways of the warrior:

  1. A warrior knows what and who he is fighting for
  2. A warrior never fights alone
  3. A warrior sharpens other warriors

Workout adapted from Darebee’s 3-minute Warrior WOD:

HIIT Workout

  • 4 exercises: punches, kicks, pushups, jump squats
  • 3 intervals
  • 3 sets each, 1 minute rest in between sets
  • Added a hill sprint, bear crawl and 2 called ab exercises

  • Lots of pre-runners today (Circuit, Hops, Happy Meal)
  • Thanks Wild Turkey for bringing the shovel flag and reinvigorating this site
  • Thanks Happy Meal for making the drive from Mint Hill
  • Mic Check questioned the Daft Punk music selection when the playlist hit Digital Love but kept us going throughout this beatdown
  • Hops and Mic Check were throwing out names for our Joey, our Friendly New Guy (FNG), basically the minute the workout started. Hops gets so giddy when throwing out names, but it was Mic Check’s recommendation that stuck
  • Welcome Joey to F3! Ali with an “i” because of all the Karate Kid chatter
  • Wild Turkey is going to crush his GrowRuck event tomorrow!
  • Thanks Wingman for the photo and your tremendous selfie skills (way #4 of the warrior)

Truth Nuggets

  • Jesus answered them, “Do you finally believe? In fact, you’re about to make a run for it—saving your own skins and abandoning me. But I’m not abandoned. The Father is with me. I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.”
  • “There will be days, usually after a dry season of discontent, when you will find yourself standing in the sunken road of your life, facing something dangerous coming your way that you can feel but not quite see. Gathered behind you will be the people who have chosen to rely upon you for no other reason than you have told them that you were a man upon whom they could rely. And in that moment, you feel very alone. But it will also be at that moment that the dirty breeze will briefly part the clouds, and for just an instant the sun will cause your battered armor to shine brightly. It is then that a voice will whisper in your ear; you are here in harm’s way because I called forth a warrior, and you said Aye. Now go fight. And with a shove, the owner of that voice will push you forward to fight another day. And as you draw your broadsword, as you knew you would, you will be thankful that you had the help of your Brothers in keeping it sharp, for just as iron sharpens iron, one man sharpens another….. Now Brothers, go fight for the ones you love.”
