The Thang

Someone asked me recently if I had a “Death Wish” because I like pushing the envelope, so I naturally thought of Charles Bronson in his multiple “Death Wish” movies. So…Here we go!
Charles Bronson, JR.
Lay out cones across soccer field at 0, 40 and 50 yards. O being the starting point for all exercises. At the completion of set exercise all PAX will sprint to 40 yard cone and Bear Crawl to 50 Yard cone. Mosey back to start and hold Al Gore or Plank until 6 is in. Caveat – First PAX to complete will go meet 6 and complete with 6 adding motivation!

ALL Exercises are done as 25 Reps (Single Count). 1. Side Straddle Hop. 2. Merkins. 3. Burpees. 4. LBC’s. 5. Jump Squats. 6. Imperial Walkers. 7. Mountain Climbers. 8. Plank Jacks. 9. Lunges. Total of 225 Reps per round.

After 1 complete round all PAX went to bleachers where we did 10 Incline Merkins and Box Jumped or modified with Step Ups to top and walked back down to ground.

Rinse and Repeat – 2nd round perform 15 Reps of each exercise. Total of 135 Reps.


CIRCLE OF TRUST: Counterama, Namerama, Announcearama –
BALL OF MAN: I mentioned my faith and also used an old saying that has been used in the military for decades. “There are no Atheist in Foxholes” I didn’t mean in a derogatory manner, just the fact the many people who are non believers who are under extreme stress (especially in combat) will even turn to God or as we like to say in F3 “something higher than ourselves”. The third F in F3 doesn’t not ascribe to any one faith. None of us in the F3 Family will lie in judgement of F3 Brothers based on their beliefs.

I also delivered Lesson 2 of 18 from Colin Powell’s Leadership Primer:

“The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them.  They have either lost confidence that you can help them or concluded that you do not care.  Either case is a failure of leadership.”


“Leave No Man Behind and Leave No Man Where You Found Him”. I asked the first PAX who completed there exercise, run, bear crawl, and run back to start to fall back and pick up the six. Most rounds you can expect the same 2-4 people finishing before others. What I found, was that some who were not first asked to be allowed to pick up the six even when they themselves were not first to finish! That was Awesome!

Not to mention Burrito’s corny Abraham Lincoln Quotes!!! LOL..


Don’t forget convergence on Saturday, Nov 16th!
