Join CF for our April ‘Pull-up a day’ challenge!
This is a fun challenge to get CFers engaged and to get better at our pull-ups! The goal of the challenge is to do 1 pull-up for each day of the month: 1 on April 1, 2 on April 2, and so on until we all do 30 on April 30th. Start out doing any type of pull-ups you’re comfortable with (jumping, bands, etc), and as you get better and stronger you’ll be able to move away from the assistance, get your first kip, or whatever it is that marks an improvement for you!
Obviously we’d love for you to be at CF every day of the month to do your reps, but we don’t expect that. This is entirely on the honors system. You are responsible for keeping track of your own reps.
Here are the guidelines for the challenge:
1. The pull-ups for each day should be performed as uninterrupted as possible. For example: on the 20th, try to do all 20 before leaving the smokehouse area. You can break it up into 4 x 5 / 2 x 10, but stay there until you get all your reps.
2. It’s ok to combine multiple days into one set if you want to (2 and 3 can be combined into 5 at once).
3. You can ‘buy in’ to the challenge any day of the month by performing all of the pull-ups you missed up to that point.
4. If you miss a day (or more), you must make up the missed pull-ups before doing the current day’s reps. No “banking” reps ahead of time!
5. Any pull-ups you do during a workout may count towards the day’s reps if you want them to.
Sign up on the board by the smokehouse and check off each day you get your reps in. Then, stay tuned! We’ll do a re-cap at the end of the month to recognize improvements and accomplishments.

- Honor This is the bedrock of our character. It is the quality that empowers Marines to exemplify the ultimate in ethical and moral behavior: to never lie, cheat, or steal; to abide by an uncompromising code of integrity; to respect human dignity; and to have respect and concern for each other. It represents the maturity, dedication, trust, and dependability that commit Marines to act responsibly, be accountable for their actions, fulfill their obligations, and hold others accountable for their actions.
- Courage The heart of our Core Values, courage is the mental, moral, and physical strength ingrained in Marines that sees them through the challenges of combat and the mastery of fear, and to do what is right, to adhere to a higher standard of personal conduct, to lead by example, and to make tough decisions under stress and pressure. It is the inner strength that enables a Marine to take that extra step.
- Commitment This is the spirit of determination and dedication within members of a force of arms that leads to professionalism and mastery of the art of war. It promotes the highest order of discipline for unit and self and is the ingredient that instills dedication to Corps and country 24 hours a day, pride, concern for others, and an unrelenting determination to achieve a standard of excellence in every endeavor. Commitment is the value that establishes the Marine as the warrior and citizen others strive to emulate.
According to the USMC website, the definition of boots and utes is: (USMC) “Combat boots and utility uniform, minus the blouse; sometimes used for physical training or working in hot environments.”
Remember to continue wearing your boots and utes through March 31st!!

A:A sense of urgency is the sense that immediate action is required. It is the idea that something must be done as soon as possible or a potentially positive outcome may be missed or turned into a negative outcome. In some instances, it can mean preventing a negative outcome from getting even worse.
It’s looking like warmer weather is finally on the way! Before we know it, another sweltering Hero Week will be here…
Reminder: 7 AM class continues this week and next. Attendance has been strong, so keep it up and this will become a regular class!
Reminder: Sunday 8 am class is moved to 9:15 AM and will be held on the FitU side of the building. No change to 1 PM class.
