Run Them Jewels PAX

Posted on

YHC decided to introduce the PAX to his favorite hip hop group, Run The Jewels.  YHC was moderately surprised that no PAX had previously heard of RTJ, but that only added to the satisfaction of sharing the RTJ gospel. YHC needed to extra juice this morning because he just returned from a week of beach […]

Core TBOMBS and Steinls

I was prepared today with two different workouts; the primary workout was a “redo” from a botched Q that I led at this site back on 8/23.  It was so bad, I didn’t even do a backblast.  The other workout was  weather dependent, with the need for heavy rain.  With a decent morning weather wise, […]

YHC just wanted a day where F3 was less than 10 minutes away. After posting for the first time in February of 2016 and in the months that followed where YHC went from casual poster to active participant, YHC had always wanted to get F3 going closer to home (North Durham, but technically the address […]

Ah, the Big Dance. Arguably up there among the greatest spectacles in sports. Definitely up there among the greatest times of year to be in Vegas. I know this is probably not even gonna register a blip on the screen for many of you all, but one of the biggest of the Big Dances for […]

Circuit of Rock

The first post from YHC was on 7/16/18 right here at #theeagle. Back then, the thought of taking the Q seemed far too intimidating to even contemplate. But the more I posted, the more comfortable the possibility became. The original plan was to take on my VQ on 10/15/18 for a pseudo 3-month F3 anniversary […]

What are the elements of an effective Q? Some ideas YHC has observed over the last year or so: Creatively finding new exercises or novel ways to mix up the old standards Continuous movement to get (and keep) the heart rate up, especially running or sprints Coupons that mix up the body-weight exercises with other […]

The Notorious 7-Song, BIG D.A.N.C.E. Workout

Posted on

Inspired by Banana Split’s Q the week before, YHC elected to do a little DJ’ing as well, incorporating an eclectic musical mix for the workout. After all, making some grown men get their groove on at an AO called the Big Dance seems entirely appropriate. Plus, as Tugboat observed, “music just makes the workout go […]
