At the Movies: Training Montage

Posted on

Y’all have seen Rocky or Karate Kid or [insert your favorite sports / super hero movie here]. And what’s the best part of the movie? The fight scenes, of course. But before the fight scenes comes…the training montage. Yes, any great action flick worth it’s muster has some sort of kick a– music playing underneath […]

DUCHAMP

Posted on

YHC is an artist. I figured a needed to add a bit of Mind to the Body, Mind, Spirit continuum so I created an art historically themed workout. Using D.U.C.H.A.M.P as structure. Pulling from F3 exicon exercises beginning with corresponding letter in Marcel Duchamp’s last name. Make sense? Robert-Henri Marcell Duchamp was an artist. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marcel_Duchamp […]

A lot has happened to YHC the last two years. I graduated college, got my first “real” job in accounting, and was introduced to the F3 brotherhood. I only remember bits and pieces of my first workout here at the Bullpen, but I do remember how absolutely in over my head and exhausted I felt afterwards […]

Low Impact, Heavy Bricks

Posted on

Introduction: this workout’s theme was “Low Impact” due to YHC’s slowly recovering foot injury. So the PAX were promised no running or burpees, which was met with great joy. The PAX were also promised a solid workout, which they received. Warm-up: short and simple. Willie Mays Hayes. Windmill. Little baby arm circles. Slow merkins. 10 […]

When I was 42, it was a very good year…

So.. I’m kinda of a procrastinator. I wanted to grab a birthday Q but waited to late to get anything last Tuesday. So when Soybean asked me to Q the Bullpen I thought “Great! I’ll take Thursday of birthday week!” But Sweatervest beat me to the punch. So I did the next best thing. I […]
