You might read that headline and think wow a heavy rock concert. You would be right on the heavy rock. It would just take the form of a 37 something pound cinder block.

So this morning 15 Pax gathered in the gloom of East Roswell Park to tackle the F3Greenwood Week 2 #Ironpax challenge. We had posted the YouTube link they sent out  showing all the exercises and stated that gloves were needed. Judging by the amount of people and the joyful banter prior to mosey they either did not care what was about to happen or they had resigned themselves to a sufferfest.

The Warmup:

Short mosey to the parking lot arena where all this would take place, SSH, weedpickers and mountain climbers to get the blood flowing.

The Thang:

A quick explanation of what we were about to do – check

15 brand new cinder blocks lined up – check

How to track your reps on the whiteboard – check

80’s Music and timer started – check

4 sets of 8 minutes each with 2 minutes rest in between, perform as many reps as possible in that 8 minutes. After every 25 reps run 25 yards out and back (50yards total)

Set 1 – Thrusters with coupon (8 mins)

Set 2 – Curls with coupon (8 mins)

Set 3 – Kettle Bell swings with coupon (8 mins)

Set 4 – Man Makers with coupon (8 mins)

Sounds easy on paper, well this was a great challenge F3Greenwood, we salute you. I know there are some tired men out there today but all of these men are stronger mentally and are proud of their achievement.

Cant wait for next week.


Prayers for all fellow F3 men battling injury. Help make us better Fathers, Brothers, Husbands and Men. SYITG
