Thank you to the 10 other PAX who showed up to Camino del Rio on this cool and clear gloom to share in some great fellowship and a little bootcamp. Thank you to Gauge for allowing Italian Job and YHC to lead this morning.


We began the morning led by Italian Job with the following after the disclaimer and a short mosey to the green field: All in Cadence – Side Straddle Hops, Low Slow Squats, & Moroccan Night Clubs. Then we took a mosey around the field to warm up.


We started off with a set of Jack Webbs with a 1:4 Ratio of Merkins and Overhead Presses & then Captain Thors with a 1:4 Ratio of Big Boy Sit-Ups and American Hammers. With a short mosey around half of the field between the Jack Webbs and Captain Thors.

Italian Job then led us in the following: We took a short mosey from the center over to the edge of the grass field where Italian Job had us partner up and perform a series of BOMBS. This included 50 Burpees; 100 Overhead Claps; 150 Merkins; 200 Big Boy Sit-ups; and 250 Squats.

After Italian Job’s 30-minutes (more like 43 with the approval of YHC) were up, he handed off the Q to YHC.

After this everyone was pretty much warm, so took a mosey to back to the center of the field. YHC had placed 3-cones in the parking lot in a triangle. The plan was taken from Walker, but we were start at the first cone, perform 7 Prison Cell Burpees; go to the second cone, perform 21 Jump Squats; and then go to the third cone and perform 21 Dbl. Count Flutters.  This is to be done 7-times and I believe we completed 5-6 rounds with the time we had left.

Then we took a short mosey back to the to complete the morning.

Thank you for joining us this morning and for the awesome mumblechatter. This was a beautiful morning with an awesome group of men. At the end I shared the NMM.


YHC recently read a devotion that mentioned that Success begins with Showing Up. This has resonated with me recently and I have had a while to ponder on it. This statement is so true, and we call it in F3 as ‘Ringing the First Bell’.

It is simple, to have success you must take that first step. You cannot sit back and wait for it to come to you (unless you are being blessed tremendously). To begin to have success in F3 you must show up to your first workout. To have success as a Q you must be a VQ at some point. To be a successful dad or husband, you must be present. To be a successful believer in Christ, you must accept him.

Success in today’s times is completely different from the times of Jesus. When Jesus was on earth, success was showing up and getting to know him and his mission. All people had to do was drop what they were doing and follow him, or ‘show up’.

Today, success is a measuring tool for how much money you have, how many friends you have, the size of your house and your title at your job.

However, I would beg to differ that true success is having a relationship with Christ and allowing the Spirit to cultivate that relationship over time. But you must show up first to even begin having this type of success.

If you have any questions concerning this, please feel free to reach out to me or Italian Job and we will be honored to share with you.

Matthew 10:38 ‘And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.’
