An anniversary Q mash up

Posted on

Today is YHC’s 1 year anniversary to the day of when YHC first became a part of the F3 community.  Thanks to a strong EH from Knope, YHC reluctantly posted at Tobacco Road 1 year ago today.   It is more than a little serendipitous that this day would fall on a Friday and give me the opportunity to share in this celebration […]

How Heavy This PAX

Posted on

The forecast called for a balmy 29 degrees, so YHC decided to feature the 2nd all-time best winter imagery-based metal record as the morning’s soundtrack, The Sword’s Gods of the Earth. (If you’re curious, the all-time #1 winter imagery based metal record is clearly The Sword’s debut record, the much slower, much doom-ier, Age of Winters.  […]

Planks, Merkins and Squats

Posted on

Leading into this morning, I didn’t have much of a plan formulated.  When I Q, I try not to spend a lot of time talking.  This being forms week, I knew I needed to add to the knowledge of the PAX, and I found it really hard to put a workout together.   Since so much […]

Form Week, My Butt

Posted on

Form Week!  YHC’s first post was a wet 50 degree Devil’s Ridge Coco Q in Feb 2016 (RIP Panther’s Super Bowl run) and YHC has YET to Q Devil’s Ridge. Why? Excuses… 1. It’s a site for badasses. It’s scary to lead the group that shows up at DR because they will crush your workout. […]

Remembering the Beatdowns of Old

Introduction My first F3 post was (and many of my first posts were solely) at the Falcon. Shout out to Nacho Libre for the EH and getting me out to F3. After a few weeks I began attending more AOs and getting more involved with F3 to the point where I canceled my gym membership […]

Upward Movement

21 PAX assembled for YHC’s one year anniversary Q.  6 for an EC circuit of pull-ups, kettle bells, air squats, and running.  It’s hard to believe that it’s only been one year of being involved with F3.  What a tremendous blessing it’s been to be part of such an inspirational group of men.   WARMUP […]

Escalating Escalator

First we had the #bc-takeover.  Then YHC had the Q last week.  And then Soda reached out and asked if I could sub in for him.  So, three weeks in a row for a Chatham chucklehead to Q Hurricanrana.  I hope the men weren’t too fed up by now.  And, well, if they weren’t, I […]

An Ode to 11/22

Posted on

This year, Thanksgiving Day fell on Nov 22nd, or 11/22. This also just so happens to be YHC’s M’s birthday (every year; not just this year). So on this post-Thanksgiving Friday morning, with all the PAX emerging from their Tryptophan comas into the Gloom, YHC chose to honor 11/22 with a variety of exercises using either […]
