What is a Black Diamond Beatdown?

Q:  WHAT IS A BLACK DIAMOND BEATDOWN?

A:  INTENDED TO ACCELERATE THE 1ST F, A BLACK DIAMOND BEATDOWN WILL CONSIST OF A CONSISTENT, TOUGHER LOCAL BEATDOWN OPTION 2X/WEEK.  THINK IRON PAX, FORGE, HERO WODS/TIMED WODS, RUCK + SANDBAG, ETC.

Q:  WHY IS THE START TIME EARLIER?

A:  TO ALLOW AN EXTRA 15 MINUTES OF 1ST F PUSH AND HOPEFULLY REACH MORE MEN WHO HAVE TO BE AT WORK EARLY

Q:  WILL THESE REPLACE REGULARLY SCHEDULED BEATDOWNS AT #ao_the_streaker OR #ao_the_den?

A:  NO

Q:  SHOULD I BRING AN FNG?A:  WE ARE OPEN TO ALL MEN SO OF COURSE FNGS ARE WELCOME…. BUT USE YOUR DISCRETION AND CONSIDER TAKING THEM TO A REGULAR BEATDOWN FIRST IF POSSIBLE.

Q:  BUT…WHY?

A:  AS OUR OTHER LOCAL AO’S HAVE CONSISTENTLY CLIMBED ABOVE 18 PAX POSTING AT A BEATDOWN, WE ARE AT RISK OF EXPERIENCING D.R.T.F. (DIMINISHING RETURNS TO FELLOWSHIP).  SPREADING OUT THE BEATDOWNS ACCOMPLISHES A FEW THINGS.  FIRST & FOREMOST, F3 IS A LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM AND ADDING TWO NEW BEATDOWNS/WEEK WILL CREATE MORE LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE PAX.  SECONDLY, SPREADING OUT THE BEATDOWNS ALLOWS FOR DEEPER FELLOWSHIP AND CLOSER CONNECTIONS AMONGST THE PAX.  FINALLY, WE MUST CONTINUALLY CHALLENGE OURSELVES AS A PAX BY DISRUPTING THE STATUS QUO TO CREATE MOVEMENT TO ADVANTAGE.  THIS WILL BE A HARDER D.R.P. (DAILY RED PILL) TO SWALLOW BUT WILL CONTINUE THE 1ST F ACCELERATION OF OUR PAX
