Higgins Backblast – October 25, 2018

For most of my life I have been a late night person. Then in 2009 I became a statistic of the Great Recession. At 55 years of age, it was a bad time to be at the threshold of Seniordom and unemployed.

A lot of guys threw in the towel and took an early retirement.

I took two jobs.

One of them was as a package handler for FedEx. We started our shift between 2:30 and 4:00 a.m. depending on the season. In other words, this night person had to reinvent himself.

About the time we started F3 Dayton I was able to find other work with full time “normal” hours.

Now with F3, I get to sleep in until 5:00 a.m. before the workout.

The Thang:

3# Club Bell

  • Round the World
  • Wrist Rotations

7# Sledge Hammer

  • 10 to 2s
  • Jefferson Curl
  • Turkish Get Up

Throw in some

  • Tail Gate Dips
  • Monkey Walk
  • Deep Squats Held in Position

Some of these exercises I hadn’t even heard of until just the last year. And it’s not like I’m doing some of them really well.

But I’m doing ’em. And I’m better at them than even three months ago.

The DRP (Daily Red Pill) is the Daily decision to accelerate your Fitness, Fellowship and Faith.

Come join us. It’s not too late to reinvent yourself. We’ll get better together.
