Starting at the rear of the tennis courts, run 3 laps around to the north side, through the playground, and back over the bridge.
During the 1st lap, stop and do 8 pull-ups and 8 step-ups (each leg)
During the 2nd lap, do 7 pull-ups and 7 step-ups each leg
During the 3rd lap, do 6 pull-ups and 6 step-ups each leg.
Get inside the tennis court.
Burpee the lines:
Essentially, 2 burpees and 2 turnarounds at each doubles and singles line across the courts. Down and back.
More details: starting at one court’s outermost doubles line (or “the baseline”), perform a burpee on the outermost side of the court. Then jump over that (doubles) line, turn around, and perform another burpee, keeping your hands on the inside side of the line. When you stand up and jump, jump back over the line. Then turn around and move on to the next line. Drop into a burpee and begin again.
“Rest” exercise: Good mornings x 10 OYO
Get up the lines:
Divide into 4 similarly-sized groups. Each group begins at the bottom-left most part of a half-court.
Perform 10 get-ups (lie completely flat on your back, and get up to standing), then run paint the lines for that court.
Move on to the next court.
#ExtraCredit modification – do not use your hands on the get-ups.
“Rest” exercise: 10 good mornings OYO, 10 groiners OYO

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Completed. Welcome to Irwin (FNG, brought by Stingray) and Mayflower (FNG, brought by Rabbit while he is here to help with Rabbit’s move). Gave thanks for F3 and the impact it has had on many of our lives; asked for guidance and support, and to keep our thoughts on the right path.
No repeats of Hannigan’s Bridge today.
Curb taps are a great agility exercise.
So are burpees. Burpee the lines was a ton of fun, and seemed like a nice little (dare I say it?) competition.
Get-ups are becoming a PAX-wide favorite exercise.
No Longhair sightings this morning. Or in the last few weeks. Maybe he was intimidated by his run-in with AlrightAlright.
17 guys this morning, continuing an excellent attendance run this week. Keep coming out and getting better. And keep bringing out friends or family (well done, Rabbit) who could benefit from F3. Remember our mission is “To plant, grow, and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership.” #GiveItAway.
Speaking of leadership, we can use everyone’s passion and talents. Whatever you are passionate about and good at, there’s a way you can make a significant difference for the men of F3 Dallas, and for Dallas more broadly. A simple solution is to think about what you like about F3, and grow that.
1. Special July 4th beatdown tomorrow. 0700 at the flag at Flag Pole Hill. We’ll do a beatdown then a run afterward.
2. No QSource this week.
3. Safe travels to everyone travelling.
