Simple but effective #DRP today. Lots of legs and merkins, with some SLAM cardio and running mixed in.

The PAX made quick work of the 6-minute SLAM in quarters. Next time: thirds. Houston PAX are Accelerating physically.

Some guys win an Oscar. Some guys win a Super Bowl MVP. And some very lucky guys get a “good form” from C.A. Booyah!

Quick Reminders

SCOPE 5K: Run for Colorectal Cancer. This is the next F3 Houston #CSAUP event. Pace Car and Cruiser are the Event Q’s. Colorectal cancer is bad news and especially prevalent in men.

  • Where: Texas Medical Center, 1220 Holcombe Blvd, Houston, TX
  • Start Time: 0800
  • Event Q: Pace Car and Cruiser #Tclaps

    • Why: #CSAUP Races are signature events for the F3 Nation. The Spartan Race is a excellent chance to test your Fitness, growth in Fellowship and deepen your Faith (believe me, you will be praying during the race…) Ask any Pax who has done one, and they will tell you that #CSAUP events are their favorite F3 activity!!! #seeforyourself

GrowRuck 03 – New Orleans June 9-11 combines F3 Grow School with a GoRuck Tough. Details to follow. Have no doubt, this will be a transformative event for the PAX that do it, as well as for F3 Houston and F3 Texas. Get excited!

F3 COMZ. Because we are only working out together 3-4 hours a week, communication between the Pax is a key way to build our Fellowship as a group. #CommunicationIsKey There are multiple ways to stay in touch: Twitter, Facebook, F3Nation.com
