50 Greatest Living Athletes

Posted on

In its November 2017 issue, GQ listed what its writers consider to be the 50 Greatest Living Athletes.  Before the debates get started over the level of accuracy, let’s walk through the workout that 20 PAX at the Cougar completed to pay homage to a handful of those athletes listed. WARM-UP – SSH, Arm Circles, […]

Descend the Ranks

Posted on

6 PAX showed up for some Manmaker EC and then 28 in total for the main event at The Falcon. Love to see so many PAX and love seeing some new faces on the Durm side of things. A lot of PAX to move so we can’t waste any time getting started. Warmup: SSH, Imperial […]

The Power of 4

YHC’s alarm went off at 4:55.  YHC looked at the clock, thought the fartsack sounded better than getting up, and immediately remembered…it’s Monday…it’s The Rock….and I’ve got the Q.  Fartsack loses again. YHC arrived to see the bright eyes of Nickelback and Toast.  5:30 arrived and the PAX took off for the traffic circle to […]

Sunset on The Afterburn 2017

Warm up Not really. The Thang YHC was interested in a light run as a precursor to an event on Saturday. We went 2.25 mi up the ATT and 2.25 mi back at a leisurely pace, allowing us a chance to speak and get to know one another. I appreciated getting to know Yanni, who […]

Porta-Tot

Nine PAX rolled in to ReCity. YHC’s favorite time of the year – dry, cold, and worth it when you get up and get moving. YHC took the Q since the Bullpen Signup Sheet seems to be riding the struggle-bus. A challenge to the regulars at Bullpen – sign up to Q three times in […]

Stargazing while Bench Pressing

Rediscovery through F3

Posted on

One thing that comes to mind when I consider the impact of F3 is how it helps men rediscover themselves in ways old and new.  For many of us, talents and passions stayed dormant for years before our F3 reawakening.  For some, it is the love of running or the ability to go really fast, […]

Seeing Stars

7 Brave PAX met at the AO @ 0500 to take on the baddest challenge Churham has to offer: the Lone Pine hill – 4 miles round trip.   The norm is becoming 3 trips up the hill in some variation. 15 PAX in total for Rameses today. Warmup: SSH x 20 Imperial walker IC x […]

Museum of Failure

Posted on

Intro: The morning kicked off with 9 PAX ready for some EC ruck action.  Coupons were present, and mumble chatter was abundant.  Awesome to see the numbers increasing for the EC ruck. 25 men posted for the ME.  As this was my bootcamp VQ, I was eager to get started.  So eager, that I failed […]
