No Man Left Behind

Posted on

19 PAX came out for a fairly standard circuit-style F3 workout, with one minor twist.  “No Man Left Behind” meant instead of “planking it out” when a set is complete, the faster PAX had to keep doing that exercise until the last man was finished, which more often than not, was YHC.  On the other […]

The Pursuit of a Balanced Life

Posted on

I am often internally torn between two forces. On one front – I am a pragmatist. I am obsessed with the pursuit of efficiency. So much so that I often enjoy the process of making myself more efficient more than I do whatever it is I’m supposed to be doing. However, contrary to that, I […]

Coco-less Q

Posted on

17 PAX assembled with anticipation looking forward to what was likely to be their last Coco beat-down before he heads out to establish F3 SLC.

The PAX Puzzler

Posted on

I like puzzles and had an idea about working one into a Q. In addition to providing a theme for the workout, the puzzle could provide some mental distraction from PAX who might otherwise focus on the beatdown they are receiving. The solution to the puzzle is at the bottom of this BB. The PAX […]

Hockey Training for Dummies

Posted on

A modified version of a workout I ran at the Rabbit. Since there were only 2 PAX at that funfest I figured why let a good beating go to waste and brought it to the men of Pleasantville. YHC is still watching hockey playoffs and can’t get it out of my brain so Southern Village […]
