Pre-Blast: In the midst of going 6 for 6 in March I decided to, in the words of @Toto’s wife, “give up comfort for Lent.” Tomorrow is the last day of Lent and day 48 of working out with F3. I want to say thank you to all of you who came out for BlackOps and Virtual workouts over the past 7 weeks to make it happen. Some of you know that I thought about keeping the streak going but, rather than let it end unceremoniously on a random weekday, I have decided to go out in a blaze of glory by Qing one last banger of a workout Saturday morning at The Zoo, and then take Easter Sunday off. Saturday, 4/16: 0600 - Preruck 0700 - Beatdown 0800 - :beers:in the parking lot :shushing_face: Your Hard Commits are humbly requested. Coupons required, but can be modified out. Bring gloves.

5 Core Principles: Free of charge | Open to all men | Held outdoors, rain or shine, hot or cold | Led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion with no training or certification necessary | End w/ a Circle of Trust

YHC informed the PAX that “It pays to be a winner” The entire beatdown was divided into EMOM/AMRAP/HIIT workouts, as shown below. At the start of the morning, pax were randomly assigned a competitor, and then after each round they divided into winners and losers, partnering up with the pax with the closest number of reps to them, regardless of what exercise that pax was doing in the previous round.
