  • The PAX: Cruiser (RR), Hammertime, Redbull, Guitar Hero, Inferno, Shoog, Haggis, Beta, Britney (QIC)

9 PAX came to the Hogg on a frigid morning looking for some warmth.  Well, guess what?  The Q came prepared with a BD designed to get the PAX warm ASAP and keep them warm.  Your individual level of warmth is directly proportional to your level of #pushyourself.  YHC can only hope the warmth he provided was as satisfying as the warmth provided by one’s fartsack.  YHC thinks he succeeded…


It’s not supposed to be this cold in the South.  Sub-freezing.


YHC is not a professional instructor #IPlayOneOnTV. F3 workouts are voluntary and free of charge #YouAgainstYou. Modify as needed. Notify the Q of any serious medical conditions #PushYourselfButDontHurtYourself. Aye!

9 PAX.  0 FNGs.  Must be too cold.


TAPs were shared for Jessica and Cruiser having come through the first holiday season sans Big Wheel.  The F3 brothers are here for you.


It was cold this morning.  Coldest day of the year so far in Houston (it’s the 2nd day of the year).  Regardless, Redbull decided to brave the icebox in a pair of shorts and a thin long sleeve t-shirt.  Luckily, he came prepared with his European neck warmer (aka, a scarf).

Cold weather is a tough thing.  YHC admits, it really sucks to get out of a nice warm fartsack and drag yourself out ITG to workout inside a freezer.  It’s tough.  But one thing cold weather reminds YHC of – the harder something is, the better you feel after completing it.  YHC believes this wholeheartedly.  #DoHardStuff.  It makes you better, stronger.  Plus, a fantastic refrigerator BD is incredibly refreshing and will make you appreciate the painful boiling hot summer WOs even more.  Maybe.
