I love to develop themes for workouts. I love a good station workout. I am clearly a magnet for mumblechatter (can’t beat it join it). I love to see people laugh (even at my expense). With all of that in mind, we commenced our stations. On this day…
Shania Twain released “The Woman in Me Album”
Whitney Houston won a major award for her music.
Laura Ingalls Wilder was born.
The 11th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified (more on that later)
Planned workout yesterday…so we did 12 reps of everything in the warm-up (2 x 6 = 12)
Crossing the Prairie (In Honor of Laura)
Partner one runs across the prairie to their station, completes 25 reps and returns. Partner 2 holds glutes bridge. Flapjack. Each partner completes 50 reps total.
Tricep Extensions 50
Clean and Press 50
Bent Over Rows 50
Incline Merkins 50
Swing Set Pulls 50
Shoulder Press 50
Hold Plank/Al Gore Till everyone is complete

Today, we did a rotation station to music, and this in and of itself, is not out of the ordinary for me. However, rather than complete AMRAP stations, we had a set number of reps. Also, rather than the “typical” workout music, we played Whitney Houston and Shania Twain. Explanation…significant events for these people happened on this day.
Now, the 11th Amendment: This established the Electoral College, the College has 538 delegates, 500 total reps among the stations plus 38 Side Straddle Hops, and you guessed it, the number to represent the college.
All this seems crazy, the music was funny and very weird to the walkers, but it was ALL part of a well laid plan. Nobody really knew the plan, and we often do not know the plan, but if we care about the other men of F3 and those leading, then we will do our absolute best to trust in their plans. If a man is a true leader, then his plan is simply to help others and foster more leaders.
I frankly do not know where to go with this. So many, “you had to be there moments”.
Thankfully, Radiohead is not a “Creep” at all and is considerate of the neighbors; because YHC definitely isn’t when he blasts some Whitney!!
Someone’s basement is collapsing…we had the support poles at the Huey
More people sang along this morning than they did yesterday at the Lion’s Den
Gloves were NOT optional and neither were updated tetanus shots.
I truly wish I could share this experience in words but…..you just had to be there
