IMPACT in 2016

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 01/02/16
  • QIC: Jumanji
  • The PAX: Jumanji, OTC, Drone, Heisenberg, Snuffy, Feud, Piano Man, Pusher, Balut, Hollywood, Sticky Rice, Eileen

12 PAX rung in the start of 2016 the right way- with their brothers doing hard things.  YHC had a day off work to get creative with the Q, which is never good.

Pre-workout BOM to talk about F3JAX’s word of 2016- IMPACT


  • SSH x 15 IC
  • Monkey Humpers x 15 IC
  • Imperial Walkers x 15 IC
  • Prisoner Squats x 15 IC
  • Pickle Pounders x 15 IC (crowd pleaser)
  • Anonymous (reverse plank leg lifts) x 10 IC
  • Ranger Merkins x 20 IC
  • LBCs x 20 IC

At this point YHC introduced to PAX to the coupon of the day- 80 lb heavy bag

  • PAX take turns running around the circle carrying the heavy bag, while yelling the name of their M- bag had to be handled with care as a loved one would
  • PAX in the circle did a host of exercises while the coupon made it’s way around the circle- squats, merkins, LBCs, BB situps, flutter kicks, hello dollys, and others YHC forgets

Lunging Indian Run (front man in the line carried the coupon) with bear crawl to the front

C2C with partner-

  • Corner 1: 15 squerkins and switch partner positions
  • Corner 2: 10 partner stand-ups (partner sits on feet and holds calves, other partner stands up from a supine position)
  • Corner 3: 15 partner derkin
  • Corner 4: 10 helping hands (partners alternating pulling partner up from supine position)

Lap 1- wheelbarrow from corner to corner

Lap 2- leap frog from corner to corner (harder than expected)

Lap 3- partner carry from corner to corner

For some reason no one wanted to attempt partner drag bear crawls- some mumblechatter about pickle pounders and far too many compromising positions already


  • flutter kicks x 40 IC
  • LBCs x 20 IC

COT/BOM- YHC read from Ephesians chapter 6- the full armor of GOD


  • Monday running focused workout kicks off 1/4/16 0530 at Friendship Fountain downtown; Drone is the QIC
  • Sign up to join us for the Gate River Run
  • The word of 2016 is IMPACT.  Brother Drone elegantly summed it up this way:
  • As a band of brothers, our commitment is to:
    – Have an IMPACT on each other, getting messy and vulnerable and allowing others into the challenging stuff of life so that we can sharpen each other as #IronSharpensIron
    – Have an IMPACT on our families, valuing our spouses, children and other loved ones above our own interests, hobbies, careers, and desires, because real men put themselves #Third and love sacrificially
    – Have an IMPACT on those in need around us, the people who are neglected and marginalized by society, because they have value as human beings and we have been blessed in order to be a blessing
    – Have an IMPACT on the city of Jacksonville, because there are countless Sad Clowns in our own town who desperately need to see what a real leader and High Impact Man looks like
    That’s our commitment for 2016.  That’s the theme that will guide our growth and decisions this year.  What kind of impact will you have?  Are you in?
