For FNGs, the swirl of inside-baseball lingo and jargon used at your average F3 workout can be a bit confusing. Like, for instance, What’s an FNG and why do people keep calling me that? (FNG stands for Friendly New Guy, or something along those lines… )

The F3 Lexicon is intended to help in that regard, providing a scattershot listing of lingo, sayings, expressions, acronyms, etc., that may come in handy when reading a BackBlast (A writeup of what happened on a workout) or attempting to decipher an email from a QIC (The leader of a given workout).

We also have a similar glossary for Exercises called the Exicon.


Short for Ask-Listen-Remember.

  • Not all submissions will make it into the Lexicon, but we’ll let you know if yours does. And hey, if it doesn’t make it here, that shouldn’t stop you from calling it at your next Q.
