Building a Foundation


It was a chilly but awesome morning at Gridiron. It was a foundational day, just getting back to basics. We continue to build our minds, bodies and spirits. The PAX started with a look at 1 Corinthians 3:11 and building of a firm foundation in a faithful and perfect God. After studying about the “Footwear of Gospel Readiness,” we were off to build upon our foundation of physical strength.

The Thang:
25 DQ IC
25 Helicopters IC
20 Freddy Mercuries IC
10 Merkins IC
30 second Hollow Hold
25 Crab Cakes IC

Mosey to the grassy knoll for 10 minutes of Burpees

Mosey to the nearest pavilion for 20/20’s
20 Dips OYO
20 Right Leg Step-Ups OYO
20 Dips OYO
20 Left Leg Step-Ups OYO

Mosey to the playground:
10 Pull-ups
15 Monkey Humpers
10 Pull-ups

Mosey to another pavilion for more 20/20’s
20 Dips OYO
20 Right Leg Step-Ups OYO
20 Dips OYO
20 Left Leg Step-Ups OYO
25 PLTs (rinse and repeat for a total of 50)

Mosey to the football field:

100 yard Merkin Challenge friendly Beast with Merkins, Squats, Merkins, Monkey Humpers, LBCs and Merkins

Triple Check: Wall Sit at press box, APDs, Kareoke across football field and back

COT: Counterama and Namerama; Earthworm took us out with a great closing prayer of thankfulness.

For the record, this QIC rules that the burpees do count in the Merkin Challenge. The Gridiron contingency easily approached 200 this morning. Strong showing by the PAX, especially Chum Bucket. He had the best form throughout the day, and led the charge on many exercises. YHC was grateful for that since I was battling a cold and sleep deprivation.

We continue to hear mumble chatter from White Deer. His loudest (and signature) protest did not come from his mouth as we warmed up with Freddy Mercuries. If you know White Deer, you know what body part did his “talking.” White Deer’s greatest contribution to the workout continues to be his ongoing headlock of Emu. It is great to see Emu becoming a Gridiron regular. He is pushing himself and growing stronger. He is a valued member of the PAX.

Thanks to Earthworm for his continued fingerprints on our study of the “Armor of God” pre-game. Despite being on the DL, I am thankful to see him on Saturday mornings. F3 is about more than fitness, and his leadership and participation in all facets of the PAX experience sets a great example for all of us.

What should our foundation be?
1 Corinthians 3:11
11 For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
