Conditions

Gloomy with a strong scent of Port-a-Potty in the air.

The Disclaimer

This is F3.  We will work hard today but the workout itself is easy (conceptually that is).  You are here on your own free will, push yourself but don’t hurt yourself.


COP

SSH x 11

Cotton Pickers x 11

Plank x 11

Plank Jack x 11

Alternating toe touches x 11

SSH x 11

Arm circles x 11

Reverse arm circles x 11

Imperial Walkers x 11

That’s 99 total reps for the warmup.  We now took a mosey around the portable johns to the open parking lot for the main event.

The Thang

I again explained that this workout was easy.  Conceptually easy that is.  I first shared the good news:  there will be no burpees during this workout.  Then the bad news…we would be performing 99 reps of several exercises with a 200 yard mosey in between sets.

I’ve got 99 problems but burpees ain’t one of them
Derkin x 99 reps then mosey

LBC x 99 reps then mosey

Squat x 99 reps then mosey

Dips x 99 reps then mosey

Flutter kick x 99 reps then mosey back to start

MoM

Small, medium and large pickle pounder x 11 each.  Prosciutto inserted (no pun) that he had physical limitations to doing the small pickle pounder.

American Hammer x 5

Done.  See, very easy.  Conceptually at least…


Moleskin

We all have problems in this world, but for us, effort and will shouldn’t be one of them.  We all made the effort to get better this morning.  Our effort is one this we can control.  Control what you can control, leave alone what you have to leave alone.

At my niece’s graduation this past weekend, her class chose a class quote for the future:

“If we wait until we’re ready, we’ll be waiting for the rest of our lives.”  -Lemony Snicket

I thought this was very appropriate for my life so I wanted to share.  Too often we opt to wait and let things (good or bad) happen to us.  We should remember that it is up to us to make the conscious effort to get better and work towards goals.  Whether this is by physical action, prayer, or changing our thought process/mindset, it’s up to us to declare that we are ready.
