Higgins – It Does Not Take A Village

Date – 10-18-18
Time – 1900
AO – Higgins (a.k.a. Cloud Park)
Q – Wilson
Pax – Faucet

How many Pax does it take to have a workout? Well, tonight, just two.

At F3 we often talk about the bonding that occurs through common struggle. Normally we’re referring to the sweat that occurs during the workout. But not always.

“Oh, you had a sucky week at work, too!”

Male bonding.

Nothing quite relieves the pressures of life like a good workout.

The Thang:

On mile mosey with stops at:

  • Parallel bars – dips to failure
  • Pull up bar – pull ups to failure

Back in the parking lot we continued with 25# dumb bells:

Triceps extensions
Bent over rowing
DB swings

And a lot of mumblechatter.

So, what did you watch on TV? Did it make you a better man?

Come join us.

October 9 2018 – Higgins

Date: 1-9-2018

Time: 0530

AO: The Higgins (Thomas Cloud Park)

Q: Wilson

A few months ago I heard of a Crossfit gym that had told a patron to not come back. “You do not fit the profile of the clientele we are after,” is what they were told.

You know the profile of men F3 is after? The only thing necessary is to have a Y chromosome. Other than that, F3 is open to all men of any fitness level. To accommodate that, we always “modify as needed.”

The Thang:
We modified:

1 mile Ruck
Rinse and repeat 1 time.

Sometimes keeping it simple can be a great thing.



Scheduling note: If you come on Thursday you should have the park to yourself. But you never know.

Upon reaching the picnic tables at the top of the hill, the PAX performed the following:
