• When: 01/09/17
  • QIC: Leprechaun
  • The PAX: Stakeout (R), Guitar Hero, Pace Car, H-Bomb, Fresh Prince, Haggis, Britney, Beta, Scholarship, Cruiser (RR)

Despite the National Championship Game last night, 11 PAX posted ITG at #TheHogg for a very basic workout. Sometimes you just have to keep it simple and give the PAX the opportunity to push themselves, or not. To each man’s credit, there were no slackers today on what our #WarDaddy estimates to be ~3-mile jaunt (maybe shorter?? if you have mileage, color me curious).


Glorious! 45 degrees.


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.



  • Agility runs around the parking lot


  • SSH x50 IC
  • Imperial Walker x25 IC
  • Arm-o-rama x50 IC

Walking Tin Soldiers and Lunge Walks to make sure the blood is flowing.

The Thang

Stakeout is point and Pace Car is the Sweeper.

Line up single file and Indian Run down Haskell St – brief pause for Scholarship’s key (Oh, Locksmith, where art thou?) – , hang a right on Amot, then a quick left on Candlewood. Stop for the first Pain Station.

  • PS1: Question: who has not brought out an FNG in the last two months? Nine hands, including YHC’s, go up. So, nine burpees OYO.

Indian Run single file down Candlewood. Stop about halfway for:

  • PS2: Nine burpees, OYO

Indian Run single file to Memorial, hang a right and continue the IR to the Pull Up Bar.

  • PS3: PAX take turns doing 5 pull ups while PAX alternate Partner Handslap Merkins, Big Boy Sit Ups, and Copperhead Squats.

Double Applesauce Bataan Death March, then single file IR, then Jailbreak on the El Camino Real to the shovel flags

  • PS4: Six Minutes of Mary, Q-o-rama: Low Flutter, Plank, Big Boy Freddie Mercuries, LBCs, Straight Leg LBC, Centerfolds. Variety of 20 counts for all.

Time ran out before YHC could squeeze in another nine burpees.

CountORama and NameORama

11 PAX, no FNGs


  • YHC took us out.
  • TAPs for Jessica/Cruiser and family; Luge and dad; Daredevil and family.

Gentle reminder to myself and others to Always Be Headlocking. And, now: A not so gentle suggestion that we get a TTT at EH Brewery!

Thanks to Inferno for his Q-Tips. It is a good refresher and put into use today.
