Normally I do something based on “this day in history,” but you know “A long, long time ago. In a galaxy far, far away” seemed to fit in with something historical. Right??

No young padawans came out this morning.

Mission Statement: The mission of F3 is to plant, grow, and serve small men’s workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.

Disclaimer: By no means am I a master jedi, so modify as necessary.

The Warmup:
SSH – 21 IC
IW – 21 IC
Windmill – 10 IC
TTT – 10 IC

The Thang:
Moseyed to the sheltered area to find cover from the imperial troops looming above us, however there were some jawas there and we did not want to disturb them with our training. Therefore, we made our way back to the amphitheater nearby to start out our jedi circuit training.

Started off with some Skywalker Shoulder Taps (SSTs). Ideally, using a full wall, you decline yourself then perform should taps. We utilized the force to keep our feet upon the first level of wall.
Like any good trainer, we did these in a four count cadence to the tune of 21 repetitions.

Up next, we wanted to train our ability to jump as high as the jedi. So what better way to do that than with some jedi jumps! (aka a box jump) Utilizing the same platform, 21 jumps were performed at the speed of each jedi’s power.

After all jedi completed their jumps, we moseyed to underneath the bridge where there were some rails. Every jedi needed to find a place to perform some Chewy Chin-Ups. We performed 20 of these in a cadence.

After the CCUs, we had to put our ships in battle formation. Therefore we did X-Wings (starfish crunches). Counting in a four count cadence, we were battle ready by 20 repetitions.

What, you know? May the Fourth, it is. The Jedi-in-charge likes to keep things simple, therefore let’s repeat all of these exercises for four times.
But wait, what’s this? Luke Skywalker had to run some in the jungles and swamps of Dagobah. After our third round, let’s run across the bridge and up and around back to the amphitheater to get our simulated running.

After our fourth set, we Imperial Marched (Walking High Knees) back to the amphitheater. Here the Jedi-in-Charge performed a jedi mind trick. He told the Jedi-in-Training that it was only the beginning of the fourth round again. Some jedi had stronger wills than others and griped that it was actually a fifth time. Regardless, we did it anyways.

After the last set of X-Wings, we moseyed back to the start and had just enough time for some Leia.
We performed Leia Crunches (your standard LBC but hold your hands next to your ears like Leia’s buns that covered her ears). Twenty-one crunches to the tune of a four count cadence.

What’s the internal temperature of a Tauntaun? ……. Luke warm!
Let’s do some Tauntauns (aka a Freddy Mercury). Again a twenty-one count with a four count cadence.

Last, but not least, we performed some planks and some variations for a minute.

Good job Jedi! You completed the circuit workout!

Count off and Name-o-Rama: 23 Jedi-in-Training

Kramer and his step-son are having a rough patch.
A brother named Jim going in for heart surgery today.

Beating the fartsack was used in the prayer as always.
