Burping the Baby

Posted on

YHC welcomed his first 2.0 into the world 22 days ago — an incredible, life-changing event. For his VQ (another incredible, life-changing event), YHC figured the entire PAX would enjoy sharing in some of the newly discovered “greatest hits” of fatherhood YHC has experienced thus far: burping the baby, celebrating the departure of in-laws after […]

(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 […]

Walls of Jericho

Posted on

Introduction: YHC spent some time on the Exicon and came across the Walls of Jericho. For some reason, I thought that I had not done this workout before, and it sounded awesome. Of course, I neglected to recall that Shake It lead us through the Walls of Jericho a few months back. Perhaps I purged […]

Smoked & Soaked

Posted on

Four PAX did EC hill sprints, eight PAX did EC pullups, and then 16 men total took the risk of pouring rain, and only had a little bit of a drizzle in the air and puddles on the ground to deal with – well, that and what QIC had in store. Warmup SSH x 25 […]

Passing Bricks

Stand in the hallway. 15m to workout. Look at the pile. Polypro Ts and heavy sweatpants and Mudgear and capiline longsleeves and jackets and hoodies and 2- no, 3- pairs of gloves. Grab about half – something long, something short, something heavy, something with a hood, a hat, thick socks, out the door, 13m to […]

Ride of the Lighting Mule Brigade

Important Note: Play this while reading… January 8, 2018 Dearest M, I’m writing you this letter as there are some very strong indications that we shall see action very soon.  The troops are mustering as we speak.  The camp that the General choose is an old school, but the boys have taken to calling it […]

Be Driven

Posted on

Nothing like an unreasonably cold morning and an equally unreasonable amount of Merkins to shake off the New Year’s Eve hangover. 3 PAX met for an early morning Ruck, 2 continued at 0520 and 1 joined 5 additional PAX for EC Pull-ups. 22 total PAX, including a great showing from our brothers out of Pleasantville, […]

The Season for Giving

Posted on

Everyone’s got more important family obligations today, so YHC is going to keep this short and to the point. There were four on EC pullups, and a total of six PAX that overcame one of the toughest fartsack obstacles of the year to meet for the main event in a blustery gloom. WARMUP SSH Arm […]

Presents Are Great, Being Present is Greater

Posted on

There were six on the EC pull-up bar, and a total of 20 PAX, that ventured out for an unseasonably warm I.C.E. VQ. (Note to self: YHC wouldn’t recommend VQing when you have nine girls “sleeping” over for your daughter’s 8-year birthday party the night before.) Thanks to Yanni who first told YHC about F3 […]
