Pax: Armstrong, Crockett, Ditka, Faucet, Fence Post, Swobbles, Zebra
Pick up the six is a phrase we use all the time at an F3 workout. I thought about it a lot this past week and wanted to explore it with the Pax. So after opening with the mission and core values, I instructed the Pax to take up a plank position.
“In addition to our mission and our values, a common expression we use is that we pick up the six,” I stated. I paused, then continued: “Why do we pick up the six?”
Silence. I can hear the thinking: What is Wilson doing? This is not our normal routine!
“Because we leave no man behind or leave him where we found him,” offered Armstrong.
“Sure,” I replied. “But, why?”
Oh, man! I came for a workout and this guy is making us think??!!
“As a group we are stronger than any individual?” posited Fence Post.
“Oohh!!” said I. That’s getting close.
Ditka jumped in, “Because we keep together during a workout.”
“OK,” I said. “Let’s combine those thoughts into an easy to remember slogan. Why do we pick up the six?
“Because we are a team.”
