Say Hello to Albert

Posted on

We had pax from 21 years old to 65 today. That’s amazing! Considering the finishing order, I think I know now why one of my fav body weight WOD is the Albert. It’s about conditioning which can only be achieved with disciplined work. I will attest that I never choose to exercise as regularly in […]

How The Tigers Rolled The Tide

Posted on

YHC was a late fill-in for an open Q slot. It seemed like the perfect chance to annoy a captive audience by telling them way more than they wanted to know about LSU’s stirring 46-41 win over Alabama, which snapped an eight-game losing streak to the Tide. (And don’t even get me started on the […]

Merkin Leg Day

Posted on

What a nice beautiful, cool morning at Duke University. Sweater Vest lead some EC pull-ups in which YHC promptly fartsacked. YHC did make it just on time for the main event where 13 other PAX, including one FNG, were ready for a beatdown. Warm-Up: All in Cadence SSH x25 Good Mornings x10 Imperial Walkers x10 […]

YHC doesn’t actually recall signing up for this Q, and it was a bit weird since he’d only ever been to the site once before. But a deal’s a deal, and it’s always fun to try to come up with a thematic workout. As we’re a stone’s throw from Cameron Indoor, and college hoops season […]

Walk the Line (Drills)

Posted on

Warm-up: Began with 10 good mornings (as all workouts on good mornings should begin). These were followed by a series of dynamic warm-up drills: zombie walks, deep lunges, caterpillar walks, traveling Willie Mays Hayes, high knees, butt kicks, karaokes, and (of course) power skips. The Thang: following the warm-up the PAX jogged to the Duke […]

Merkin Travel

Posted on

YHC was on the front end of a sinus infection and almost called in a substitute, but at the last minute I decided to keep the Q and suffer the consequences. To make the workout more bearable for my congested head, I decided to limit running and deploy a variety of alternate forms of travel […]

Merkin Free Monday

Posted on

I’m coming up on my three year anniversary (9/11) in F3. My M busts my chops about how often I talk about it, and how much brain space it takes up, which is all true. Aside from what it does for me, its made an impact on my family in positive ways. My 2.0s talk […]

Durham Labor Day Convergence

Posted on

Today our 3 Durham Monday AOs converged at the Devil’s Ridge AO. The site Qs consulted, and we decided to move the start time back to 0700 to allow a little bit of extra rest. 6 PAX woke up a bit earlier to get some pull-ups in and a seventh rucked Al Buehler. 24 PAX […]

More R-E-S-P-E-C-T

Posted on

Since YHC turned 50 last month (July 9) I’ve been seeking some respect. Since it’s important to give respect to get it, I shared with the PAX a R-E-S-P-E-C-T workout that was a modified version of one I led at TBL a few weeks back.
