A man’s character is defined by the things you do and the decisions you make when no one else is watching. It is having the integrity to make the hard choices when there are no repercussions and accountability.
To quote Honest Abe “Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it and the tree is the real thing”
We all have different “shadows” of how we act and appear as husbands, fathers, in the workplace, and around friends. Those are a lot of “shadows” to manage. My challenge to the PAX is to just focus on strengthening your “tree” or the true character of the man and your “shadows” will fall in to place.
I wont mention names.. Ahheemm… Prosciutto, Whittler, Burrito… but there was some question about the accuracy of the exercises. Just to rest your mind at ease… straight from the F3 Exercise List… I’m not one to say “I told you so” but I told you so!
Worst Merkin Ever: 1 Wide Arm Merkin, 1 Regular Merkin, 1 Diamond Merkin performed in succession with no break in form = 1 Worst Merkin Ever.
Clerkin: A merkin with a clap, either OYO or with a partner.
Blockee: Burpees with cinder blocks. With your cinder block drop down and do a Merkin on the cinder block. Return to the standing position and press the cinder block above your head to complete one rep.
No Surrender: Begin the no-surrender in the standing position with your hands locked behind your head and elbows pointing outward.4 count: 1.Go down on left knee, then 2. down on the right knee so now you’re on both knees. 3.Then stand back up on left leg then 4. up with the right leg. After half the desired reps, switch the starting leg so that you don’t favor one side.
