A Walk down Memory Lane

Posted on

YHC has learned so much in my first year in F3. The camaraderie has been amazing. But one of the best parts of the experience has been all of the great exercise names! So for YHC’s 1st Anniversary Q the theme was a walk down memory lane to work in as many different exercises as […]

Humid Suicides

Posted on

Intro: Started the morning off with a warm-up. YHC wasn’t expecting the humidity and started thinking about how YHC may not even make it through this part.  YHC decided he would need several 10 counts today. 50 Side Shuffle Hop 10 Merkins Mountain Climbers- 20 CC Little baby arm circles- 10 CC, Reverse 10 Merkins […]

Shrinking the Circuit

Posted on

Intro: Verily, the clouds parted and the rains stopped, allowing YHC to have most excellent conditions for this VQ. I’m a big fan of working through a circuit and the soccer field presented the perfect setup for such a workout. Warmup: 20x SSH 20x Imperial Walker 20x LBAC and reverse 12x WMH The Thang: We […]

Worlds Worst Merkin Wednesday

Posted on

On Saturday, I took my daughter to Sunnyside, and learned about the worlds worst merkin, and immediately knew it was in play today.  Conveniently it followed Sweatervest’s Merkin Monday workout.  16 PAX arrived out of the gloom, some from EC, some straight from the fartsack and we got started. Warm Up SSH x 25 WMH […]

Magnanimoose

I’ve been reading Bill Bryson’s A Walk in the Woods to my kids before bedtime. It is a wonderful read, partly because Bryson goes off on all sorts of tangential commentary. For example, his thoughts on moose: A moose is a cow drawn by a three-year-old. That’s all there is to it. Without doubt, the […]

Bear Sighting in Downtown Durham

Posted on

Intro: Coming off a bit a cold, YHC was ready to get back into the mix in the urban jungle of downtown Durham. However, YHC had heard that recent building activity in the area had stirred up the local wildlife, and there were wild bears wandering in and out of downtown Durham. In an effort […]

Pivot-What was I thinking?

Posted on

8 pax, including 2 for EC. I recommend EC at Paradise. TABATA style circuit (most times) with dumbells, sandbags kettlebells, and a railing for rows. The plan was an escalator adding one at every parking spot line the length of the parking lot. I quickly realize that was ridiculous, so dropped it to half the parking lot. […]

“How hot and wet do you like it?”

Posted on

  The morning was hideous. It was so humid and hard to breath. What a genius idea to run a few miles, with weight vests, to do as much murph as possible and run back to the AO. YHC was gassed and dehydrated before a Q. Time to dig deep and deliver a beat down, […]

You like merkins? Good…

Posted on

YHC offers humble apologies for getting this out so late.  No excuse. Warm up with traditional exercises, added the “power up” merkin.  Full-body and a little goes a long way. ME: Merkin pyramid up to 15 and back, in between each we ran from one sideline to the other on the soccer field.  All told […]

3 Mile 300

Posted on

YHC’s simple goal for this morning was to cover 3 miles and complete 300 reps (not including anything during warm up or Mary).  Although we hit the 300 mark for our reps, perhaps choosing to run THWM was not the optimal route for hitting the 3 mile mark.  We managed to cover less than 1.5 […]
