Sprint through the rain down to the covered portico at the bottom of the hill. Shake dry and begin the workout.

Grab a table and perform 15 dips and 15 step ups with each leg. Repeat 4 times.

Work the abs with some like core exercises. Russian twists x 40, flutters x 40, plank shoulder touches x 40

Run back to the top area to close it out with 5 superman pushups and 5 box cutters in cadence. Rinse and repeat 3 times. Then 10 big boy situps, 20 russian twists, and 10 big boy situps.


Encouraged one another to attend some of the pre-Christmas workouts next week.

Prayed for one another and our F3 brothers.
