Bull Recon

I was assigned to coQ one of The Bull’s AOs meeting at “the hill” next to DPAC. I used this morning to recon the site. I’ve been to DPAC many times and cannot remember a hill. I think Durham and Chape Hill are not quite in agreement as to what constitutes a hill! It might […]

A Wee Bit o’ Boxing

YHC’s M had been hesitant to head back to the gym, but recently started up again. Her workout of choice: boxing. She’s always throwing punches in the kitchen (not at YHC, of course), which inspired the inclusion of a wee bit o’ boxing in today’s Q. ——————————————— WARM UP Chinooks x 10 IC (reverse) Windmills […]

Round & Round we go, where we stop, nobody knows…

Coxswain, Honey Badger Site-Q, invited YHC to take a turn at the Honey Badger and YHC gladly took the opportunity to return to a unique AO where you never know what you are going to get! We had a solid group of 12, which as luck would have it was exactly what YHC wanted to […]

F3’s Mission

Before diving into the BB, I want to pontificate about F3 mission and how important it can be to thoughtfully consider its purpose beyond exercise. F3’s mission is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership. I’ve been challenging myself to consider this mission during my […]

Oh the Places You’ll Go!

 It has been a bit of a rough week for Dr. Seuss, but his book “Oh The Places You’ll Go” will always have a find a spot in my memory.   With Dr. Seuss in the news, along with the lessening of Covid-related restrictions, and the recent brazen move by the state of Texas to […]

3 Exercises, 8 Reps

Strong Friday showing of 14 PAX. Coxswain and Kia were notable absences. Coxswain because he’s the site Q and Kia because he HCd. Today’s theme was the number 38, honoring the 38 AOs across Durham.   Warm-Up SSH x38 led by Knope because YHC was less than a minute late. No penalty burpees though.   […]

Like a Rug on Valium

  Trying to heed the recent callout for PAX to get more consistent with backblasts, but there ain’t much to this one. Inspired by Peppermint Pattie and some other OGs, lately YHC has been more about keeping things very simple – a few good exercises that hit all muscle groups, and lots of reps. Running […]
