(Don’t be) So Lonely

Posted on

Music is such an important part of my life and makes working out much more tolerable for me. So whenever I have the opportunity, I like to work music into my Qs and thought today would be a good day to try out the Roxanne Burpee challenge. But why stop there? I decided to carry […]

Do Your Job

Posted on

Last night, as I was preparing for my Q this morning (watching an F3 video on how to count), I was continually stymied by the course of action I should take today. In the past I’ve always looked forward to leading the pack, but last night I wasn’t really feeling it. Maybe it had something […]

Looking for a mountain

Posted on

I arrived at 5:55 to an empty parking lot. But in true F3 fashion, cars started rolling in (seemingly in unison) with 1 or 2 minutes to spare. All in all, 8 PAX and 2 “PAX best friends” gathered, exchanged pleasantries and headed out torches ablaze. “Are you looking for a Mountain?” As we rucked […]

It’s a Swerkin!

A few weeks ago, YHC learned an exercise using swing sets at a pre-launch Jag workout. In short, you extend into a plank while your feet rest on the swing seat. In cadence count, you 1.) bring legs in (inverted crunch) 2.) extend legs back out, and on 3.) do a traditional Merkin with feet […]

Black Ice is real…just as Zook

Posted on

YHC arrived at the AO early to do some recon given the Snowmeggedon 2018. 4 Pax were already gathered for EC pull-ups under the AO pavilion which was mostly free from snow and ice. This would be our circle-up space today.   As we gathered under cover, YHC noticed a lone rucker headed towards the […]

Two men, a dog, and a (small) mountain

Posted on

Pregame I anticipated a healthy turnout at Basecamp today given the glorious temps (54 degrees at go-time!) and a desire to get a pre-holiday workout in. However, YHC arrived to an eerily empty parking lot, that is, of course, until the ever reliable @Rambler came rolling up with his newly minted plates. See:  https://f3churham.slack.com/files/U5MRTE953/F8J6S5KB3/img_20171222_180301.jpg. I […]

Secret Q-Swap with CarPex

Posted on

From Hi-Liter ™ Pre-BB When I first began at F3, I remember @Banjo suggesting that I visit as many other regions as I could. He told me that doing so would broaden my perspective, challenge my fitness, and afford me new friends. He was right. So glad that I joined five CarPex HIM a week […]

They clenched their buttocks. Warmup Since it’s form week, YHC did a quick tutorial on proper F3 counting.  He spoke to […]
