Posted on

Preamble The Pathfinder challenge has been more enjoyable than I expected.  It has also taught me fun and beneficial new exercises.  So, with the Pathfinder Class 15 window in its final weeks, I figured it could be interesting to create a ruck-centric workout.  We set out to accomplish some hard work with rucks and sandbags […]

Posted on

The 4 PAX that came to the Jag were lucky enough to have the opportunity to once again embrace the cold with a morning well below 40 degrees. YHC wanted to put together a challenging and different workout, so much time was spent on the F3 site digging up workouts YHC had never tried before. […]
