#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 […]

Low Impact, Heavy Bricks

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 […]

Durham Strong

The morning after one of the most significant disasters in Durham history, 13 PAX gathered to help one another get stronger. But before we get to the workout, it’s worth expressing a word of gratitude for the firefighters, the police officers and others who rushed to the scene at Kaffeinate / Prescient to evacuate employees, […]

Tour de Entrepreneur

Back in February 2018, YHC and the PAX honored Jackie, Walt and Wilt as part of Black History Month. In thinking about a remix of that routine, one idea that emerged for 2019 was a focus on Bull City’s Black entrepreneurs – past and present: what if we took a tour of a few downtown […]
