9 PAX posted with zero FNGs.  #ABH


TAPs for Vlasik’s FIL, KFC’s daughter Ava, Swendsen Family (especially with the Austin Launch).


John Lennon said “Amateurs borrow, professionals steal”. Lennon stole this idea from T. S. Elliot’s “amateur poets borrow; mature poets steal.”

I proudly stole ideas from some of my favorite workouts today.

  • Thanks Hammertime for the wind sprints. #BullseyesFavorite.
  • I stole Arm-O-Rama from Tulip in San Antonio.
  • I can’t remember if The Bishop or Duggar did the curb merkins first.  Either way, it’s a crowd pleaser.
  • Inferno inspired the hammy stretches prior to the wind sprints.
  • I can thank Britney for the idea of keeping up the pace with very few breaks.

So many Q’s have taught me how to run a WO.  I have so much to be thankful for!


Upcoming Area of Operations (AOs):
  • Always Be Headlocking #ABH
    • The PAX went around the circle and brainstormed on SadClowns who need an Emotional Headlock #ABH
  • No Thursday WO at the Kingdom, yet.
  • Morpheus has Saturday Q at the Kingdom.
  • Austin – Oct 28th
    • Launch in the AM / Capital Ruck Tour in the PM
    • Contact Duggar ([email protected]) with EH contact details – it’s coming up quick!!
    • Reach out to Locksmith for lodging details.
    • Camo, Inferno, and Snoop Dogg are HC.
    • If you need Camo to talk to your M for a kitchen pass, he is up for it.

For those few of you who have not yet signed on – get onto BAND today, either via smartphone app (links here: apple / android), or via the website. This is our new preferred Comz Channel going forward – download it and join the band called “F3 Houston” to get all the info on F3 Houston. Here is where you can learn who are the upcoming Qs, sign up yourself to be the Q, read our Backblasts for each WO, learn details of our next CSAUPs, and as usual, make fun of the guys in the Pax in general with some good ol’ Mumble Chatter.

Thanks for the chance to lead in the gloom!
