  • QIC: Inferno
  • The PAX: TP, StrikeOut (FNG), Stealer, BridesMaid (FNG), Podcast, Barricade (DR), Leprechaun, Relief, Cradle Robber, Cc, Crosswalk (R), HandFull (FNG), Inferno (QIC)

13 Pax, including a solid 3 FNGs, posted at The Trinity for this 3rd Saturday workout (WO) in League City. It was an honor to be a participant in these early beginnings of what will surely be a glorious future in LC, and encourage everyone in our other AOs to head down and post with these fine warriors!

This was YHC’s 2nd posting at The Trinity and first Q there. As is always a Q’s intent, YHC wanted to keep today’s WO fresh – so YHC headed to F3 Houston’s annals and studied some of our first few BBs to get some ideas of what we introduced early on in F3 Houston’s prime. What follows is YHC’s smörgåsbord interpretation of said research (“Gotta love ’em BLIMPS!”):


Glorious! That is all.


YHC is not a professional. F3 workouts are voluntary and FREE – you are here voluntarily #YouAgainstYou. Modify as needed. Notify the Q or rest of Pax of any serious medical conditions #PushYourselfButDontHurtYourself.

The Thang

Moseyed from the parking lot to the Shovel Flags (SF) to start our COP…


  • SSH x 30 IC
  • Slow Squats x 30 IC
  • Plank Jacks x 25 IC
  • Merkins x 20 IC
  • Imperial Walkers x 15 IC
  • Lunges x 10 IC
  • Burpees x 5 OYO

Remember the last few exercises – you have just completed a reverse BLIMPS – you will see them again.

Moseyed to one of the MANY nearby fields for a String of Pearls: laps with pain stations. First, circle up and partner up 1/2s – now get in Double Applesauce formation with your partner while we run laps in formation. Mosey one round, then perform each of the following 4 exercises with your partner:

1 – P1 does ‘Big Boy Situps’ x5 while P2 holds the ‘Not So Lazy Boys’
– Alternate until 30 for each partner by 5s
2 – P1 does Hand-Release Merkins x5 while P2 holds the Plank
– Alternate until 30 for each partner by 5s
3 – P1 does Imperial Walkers x5 while P2 holds the Al Gore
– Alternate until 30 for each partner by 5s
4 – P1 does Monkey Humpers (MH) x5 while P2 holds the up MH position
– Alternate until 30 for each partner by 5s

Mosey back to SFs, but wait…. There’s a wall over there!! Let’s stop for:

  • Dips x15 IC
  • Step Ups x 10 OYO (each leg)

Continue the Mosey back towards SFs for some BLIMPS. Mosey/Jailbreak (“You Against You”) from pre-determined spot on the field to SF, stop for exercise, Mosey/Jailbreak back to starting point for the next exercise – Rinse & Repeat until completed:

  • Burpees x 5 OYO
  • Lunges x 10 OYO (each leg)
  • Imperial Walkers x 15 OYO
  • Merkins x 20 OYO
  • Plank Jacks x 25 OYO
  • Slow Squats x 30 OYO

Rinse & Repeat from the top until everyone has completed.

Continue the Mosey back to SFs for more COP:

  • Dolly x 15 IC
  • Rosalita x 15 IC
  • Low Flutter x 15 IC
  • High Flutter x 15 IC
  • Howling Monkeys: we made it 4 full rounds before time was up, well done!
CountORama and NameORama

13 Pax, including 3 FNGs – welcome to: StrikeOut, BridesMaid, & HandFull.
Strong work by the whole Pax today!


TAPs to StrikeOut’s Father in Law fighting the good fight against Cancer! TClaps to Crosswalk (War Daddy of The Trinity) who has lost over 10 lbs in the 3 weeks since joining F3! Keep up the good work, brudda – thank you for sharing your story and continue being a leader at The Trinity as F3 League City continues to grow.


As mentioned earlier, YHC took great pleasure Q’ing this 3rd WO at The Trinity! I encourage everyone to head down and post for the WOs, but also to head down and take the Q. There are lots of warriors in League City who will undoubtedly take up the Q soon themselves, but they can always benefit from the variety different Qs will bring from other AOs. YHC wanted to bring more exercises today, but ran out of time before getting into some other ideas… maybe next time.

The Howling MHs at the end is where the Pax was really able to push each other with Barricade, Leprechaun, Cc, & Podcast showing us just how long a 5-count can take. Thanks for pushing the Pax beyond what we thought we could do. That is the beauty of posting with your F3 Brothers – the difference between a beatdown TOGETHER versus the SAD CLOWN working out indoors on his own under florescent lights among strangers. We are here to support and push each other! We are here for all 3 Fs!!

Good times at Coffeeteria with the Pax who posted for some great 2nd F afterwards – always a perfect ending to a firm beatdown.

From our F3 Lexicon

SAD CLOWN: A man who seeks external Happiness rather than internal Joy. He goes through the motions of life in the manner in which he perceives is expected of him from the culture rather than in the manner for which he was created. Having no real Purpose in life (other than existential continuity), he lives for little else than to be told at his deathbed that his last check has cleared. He can usually be identified by inconsistent Fitness (he cyclically gains and loses the same 40 pounds), loneliness (he lacks true meaningful male friends) and lack of Purpose (he has no idea why he does the things he does).

SAD CLOWN SYNDROME: A state of chronic Sad Clown-ism.
