PAX POSTED: ENDO, VANELLOPE, GROUPER, NO-SEE-UM, DBA, NO-SKI

6 PAX posted for what was an absolutely beautiful and glorious morning for a beatdown.  YHC on the Birthday Q today representing all the 43 year olds out there.  Much mumble chatter about “THE BEAST” making his official appearance…and he showed as promised.  Disclaimer was given and the men of F3 Lutz began the celebration…

THE CELEBRATION

At this point THE BEAST was unveiled from the tarp that was placed over it.  Many oohs, aahs and mumble chatter ensued.  Everyone was rather excited until YHC revealed that it was laying on its side and flipped it upright revealing its true glory.  A multiple, yet portable set up that can be assembled in many ways to perform over 15 different exercises.  Today it was set up for pull-ups, dips, incline merkins and decline merkins…12 cones surrounded THE BEAST and all PAX were instructed to pick a cone.

ENDING THE PARTY

Of course with 2 minutes left to spare no good birthday celebration would be complete without “The Birthday Song”. (Made famous at Vanellope’s bday beatdown)  Quick drink of water and time for a fast paced finale where all PAX perform a merkin every time the word “birthday” is said.  The song lasts 1:01 and was edited down to say “birthday” only 43 times instead of the usual 58.

COT

  • Prayers for all that could not make the Beatdown that they find a way to make it back
  • Prayers for all of our F3 LUTZ men that have personal and/or health issues going on
  • Thanks above for allowing us to wake up every morning and have a birthday to celebrate

MOLESKIN

I am a truly blessed man to be surrounded by these great men that showed up to celebrate my birthday in beatdown fashion.  Could not have asked for a better present than the sweat and determination of other men to push me harder to be a better person and leader within our community.
