The BackBlast:

With just a couple days until Christmas, 6 PAX stepped out into mid-20 degree temps and a layer of fresh snow at Copper Beach.

It was a little odd – with the snow and low clouds, it was actually fairly bright outside when the workout started. By the end, the clouds had moved on and it was very dark.

In the recent days/week we have done: 12-days of Christmas, Quarters for Christmas, and Twas the Workout Before Christmas, today was all about Christmas Movie Trivia.



Moroccan Night Clubs 15 IC…leave arms up

Jack Reacher 20 IC…leave arms up

Overhead Seal Clap 25 IC…recover!

Body Weight Squats 40

We then took a mosey out of the parking lot and took the big loop south and west around the neighborhood – doing the workout along the way.

Announcements and COT:

Tomorrow’s workout will be a special location, Gold Digger has plans – bring your coupons – check slack for exact address!

It’s always a privilege to Q an F3 workout. Always takes a little extra effort to prepare. Always a chance to grow myself while I think about the specifics to the workout. I led a grand total of zero workouts before starting F3 and now I’d guess I’ve done 30-40…thats crazy. Thanks for the opportunity boys!

I’m grateful for this group of guys that continues to invest into each others lives in the pursuit of getting a little better each day – so we can be the men our families and others need us to be.
