14 men got stronger at The Main Event on Tuesday, May 4th.  We did a combination or upper-body coupon work and running (~2 miles in total…give or take) in between this DORA Ladder that we didn’t quite have enough time to complete.  BIG SHOUTOUT to the F3 La Grange men that posted on Tuesday for utilizing Slack and HC’ing for the beatdown.   We had 14 HCs in Slack — and 14 men showed up!  Great work!

– High Knees
– Tappy Taps
– Arm Circles/Abe Vigodas
– Windmills/ Don Quixotes
– Arm Stretches OYO

– DORA LADDER with Partners, collectively totaling the rep count for each exercise.  Partner 1 did exercise, while Partner 2 ran a lap around the AO, or when coupon was available (depending on exercise), farmer carried two coupons the length of the soccer field…and back.

– 100x Blockies (lap around AO)
– 200x Merkins (farmer carry)
– 300x Coupon Curls and/or Upright Row  (lap around AO)
– 200x Big Boy Sit-ups or Little Baby Crunches (farmer carry)  <– most groups finished here
100x High-Plank Coupon Pull-Overs (lap around AO) <– I think only the super-duper strong, over-achieving team of @Beaker and @Brother Bluto got  to this point (forgive me if I missed another super-duper strong, over-achieving  team).

– We are all HIM (High Impact Men) — at F3, with our families, our careers, our communities, etc..  It’s okay for us to take time for ourselves to (Aaron Rodgers voice…) R.E.L.A.X..  We shouldn’t feel the need to have to be doing something productive ALL OF THE TIME.  If you’re handling your “business” and doing the right things day in and day out — take a breather — take an an afternoon off and find time for yourself (golfing/watching golf, watch a baseball game, or whatever else you’re into).  We need it….and I’m just simply reminding you that you do need it.
