The mission of F3 is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership.

  1. Workouts are always free
  2. Are open to all men
  3. Held outdoors (or Virtual during a pandemic), rain or shine, heat or cold
  4. Lead by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification needed. 
  5. End with a COT


On a warm and humid, Friday morning in the gloom; 19 PAX arrived at the HMP parking lot ready to celebrate HushPuppy’s 1st F3 anniversary. Exactly 1 year prior, YHC was finally dragged to a Hump Day workout @ HMP after almost a whole year of head-locking from Beauty. I had no idea what I was getting into. Little did YHC know, but he would find exactly what he had been missing in his life.


To pay respects and homage to my very first post from a year ago; YHC invited Blade to co-lead the warm-o-rama in a rotating fashion with YHC. Blade was the Q at YHC’s very first post, and I wanted to make sure that I showed my appreciation to him.

PAX began a group mosey down to the center of Goose Poop Island.

THANG: A few of HushPuppy’s favorite things.

YHC set up 5 marked stations located around Goose Poop Island. These were set up during the EC ruck completed by YHC, Blade, Steak Knives, and McFly. The PAX would complete 3 laps around Goose Poop, climbing the ladder of marked exercises at each station. For each lap, the number of reps was multiplied by 10. Lap 1=10 reps. Lap 2=20 reps. Lap 3=30 reps.

Pax started at the grassy area in the middle of goose poop. Here they completed Makhtar N’Diaye. Then they Bear Crawled across the bridge over the pond. They would then run up to the pull up bars where they completed Punch-Up Merkins. Next they would run to a group of trees where they would complete Jack Knives. Following they would run to the stairs and finish with Monkey Humpers. Run down the stairs to start the next lap!


PAX Mosey back to AO to close out with some shield lock!

PAX partners up to complete 5 fist bump merkins. Following the merkins, they would stand up to shares something they loved or admired about their partner. They would then find another partner. This repeated until 6:15.

We shared what we loved about each other to show how we as men can express our love for each other. Sometimes this can be hard for men. We are called though to share our love for each other like Christ loves us!


COT: Prayers for Patience and wisdom during times of changes in our state. Prayers for any PAX going through hard times.

Thank you all for making my first year of F3 an amazing one! Cheers to many, many more!!!!
