At the Movies: Training Montage

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

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 […]

Like Blockwork

It had been months since YHC had been to the Bullpen, which made it especially good to be back out with the PAX of downtown Durham. In thinking about a theme for the Q, YHC centered on the user of cinder blocks. Most of us have experienced cinder blocks as notoriously effective in delivering a […]

Escalating in new territory

Back from vacation and ready to get back to the school year routine, YHC decided I may as well get on a Q sheet or two. If you’ve not Qed, I highly recommend it. It feels good to give back to the PAX, its fun to do the exercises that you need to complement your […]

#TBT

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 […]

Ye Olde July 4 Convergence

When posting at Tobacco Road on 6/27, during COT, Floyd mentioned that the Q sheet was open for the 4th of July and YHC casually agreed to take it – thinking perhaps it would be a solo Q (no one else would come due to the holiday, travel, etc.).  Someone suggested to do a convergence […]
