• When: 12/17/2018
  • QIC: Trojan
  • The PAX: Duggar, Whiskey (R), Vlasic, Drano, Teeth Bird, Ivy, Playdoh, Bone Saw (R), Holiday, Awesome Sauce, The Gipper (R), Monty, Mr. Rogers, Gemini, Detention, YHC (QIC)

16 PAX > 0 FNGs hesitantly posted for the first leg of the Trojan Clause Gauntlet. The PAX were apprehensive in delivering presents to the children, but they were strong, and their resolve was mighty.


HO HO HO! The weather was GLORIOUS! 55*, crisp and clear


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


  • Abe Vigoda x10 IC
  • Grass Grabbers x10 IC
  • LBC F/R x15 IC

Count off 1s and 2s for the DECK OF DEATH with a Christmas flair. 1s start running through deck while 2s deliver presents to the children, and then sprint back. Switch until forever.

  • Hearts – Burpees (because we love them)
  • Diamonds – Merkins
  • Spades – LBCs
  • Clubs – Squats
  • Jokers – 10 Burpees

We made it through the whole deck, plus some extra burpess someone *cough* Duggar *cough* shuffled back into the bottom.

Following the WoD, Duggar and YHC stepped off on a 5 mile ruck taking turns under the Hogg Sack > 16 min pace. Great conversation with great company. To add on to the training, YHC will be stepping off on another 5 mile ruck tonight after the 2.0s are nestled in bed.

16 PAX > 0 FNGs


TAPs for Duggar’s brother, Whiskey’s son (and wife, and Whiskey!), and YHC’s uncle.


This was the first day of my gauntlet and my 6-day training binge, and BOY WHAT A START! Great work by all the PAX, and a truly humbling experienced to be welcomed by a group of people most of whom I had not met before. This week will be the kick-start to my HTL training, and I could not ask for a better group of men to share this experience with.
