THA THANG:
Mosey to the football field for 11’s with Merkins (start at 10, go down to 1) then run across the field for Squats (start at 1, go up to 10). Go until 10 Merkins and 1 Squat.

Headed over to the bleachers for 5 rounds of running up and down bleachers (3 were normal, 2 were bunny hop up and run down).

Do two rounds of 10 Irkins, 10 Dips, 10 Dirkins, and 10 Step-ups (each leg)

Do a lap around the track: Shuffled the curves, ran backwards down one straightaway, and burpee broad jump the other straight away. Mary after.

Mosey back to the park for 12 Dry Docks

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC prayed us out

MOLESKIN:
YHC journeyed over to the Harbah this AM to see how they live it up there. Solid turnout including Mr. Mom from McKinney (major T-claps!) and Phelps continued his perfect attendance. Name change to Iron Horse or Ironman perhaps?

Icebox and Meatball had their own #jeepmafia, but Dirtbag apparently didn’t give enough hard consideration last night as he was notably absent.

The burpee broad jumps were quite the crowd pleaser. Icebox did his best to encourage the PAX to work smarter, not harder by bringing their feet up to their hands to complete each burpee to give them an extra 6 feet (or 4 feet in Big Tex’s case) between broad jumps.

YHC is looking forward to coming back out to the Harbah again.

No Ultra sightings, so the under of 2.5 is looking like a solid bet unless he pulls his own Phelps and shows up the rest of this week

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
1. Grow Ruck this weekend! Can still sign up, but probably won’t get a shirt

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC prayed us out and asked for strength and endurance for the rest of the week.

MOLESKIN:
Grumbling began immediately when YHC called for a mosey to the track. The only explanation can be is that Slippy’s track workouts of late have given the track a bad reputation. Anyways, every lap around the track was in memory of every donut that Bleep consumed during the Krispy Kreme Challenge. After 1 mile Phelps was ready to call it a day but YHC had other plans. After 2 impressively fast relays PAX moseyed back to the parking lot where YHC tortured everyone with a drawn out MARY until 0615.

Mosey to the tennis court, where half the group did a suicide while the rest did burpees. Flapjack. 

Next 10 Dry Docks, and at this point, the ECers joined us. They were 52 minutes late, so everyone did 52 burpees, then ended with 10 squats

MARY:
We never did do the rugby sit ups

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC prayed us out

MOLESKIN:
YHC decided to take the PAX on a little safari this AM. YHC had thought about a big planned beatdown, but alas, was slammed with work this week, so that will have to wait. The Red Barchetta starter was a crowd pleaser and generated a few “FUs” from Rump. There were some issues with defining which fence and which trash can for a few of the sprints, so YHC knows why this exercise is normally done on a football field.

The NA Duck Walk led to some discussion about the best human duck call in F3, where the consensus was Ultra would have it, with Sex Panther second. Sound Machine had a rather surprising good duck call, which he claimed is partially due to his first car having hooves.

In the middle of the NA Crab Walks, YHC turned to Alright Alright and asked if the ECers joined the beatdown, should YHC make the PAX do penalty burpees for them being 35 min late. Alright Alright said we should, which YHC kept in his back packet.

A lot of mumble chatter during the Safari, which led YHC to think that maybe the Safari wasn’t a sufficient beatdown, so YHC decided to ramp up the cardio with the NA run and suicide at the tennis court. We decided to split into two groups for the suicides and YHC took Alright Alright’s suggestion of the group doing burpees while they waited, which YHC happily obliged (insert more “FUs” from Rump Roast). 

YHC was going to just do a few exercises and some Mary, but the ECers joined right after the suicides, so YHC had to be consistent and fair and thus 52 penalty burpees were required for the ECers showing up 52 min late. This led to quite a bit of grumbling and a few cries of foul from the ECers saying we were late to the EC workout. However, YHC would like to point out that YHC did not join the EC group or workout at all, so YHC didn’t attend the EC workout. The ECers joined the workout that started at 0700, and thus the penalty burpees were instituted. 

FNG naming occurred. Potential other names were Wild Thing, Dorn (Jobu brought him, so another Major League theme), or maybe Loggins (he has a great head of hair). But El Chapo, mentioned he is a rock climber the rock climbing led to discussions about El Captain where free climbing occurs, and that led to El Chapo. 

Shoutout to the perfect weekers (Big Tex, F150, Slippy, and Sex Panther) and pour one out for Bleep and Special Sauce. Bleep is usually absent on Saturdays, so that’s understandable. Special Sauce was unable to return from beyond the wall in time, as he journeyed to the great North yesterday. Though he’ll probably be happy that he missed all the penalty burpees after requesting no burpees. 

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
1. F3 Grow Ruck in two weekends (April 9-11). Houston has scholarships available!
2. Carry the Load on Memorial Day, May 31

Club Rehab for the Beach

#musclebeach #clubrehab #backblast

Dirtbag Meatball Special Sauce Ina Rump Roast Bleep Slushii sound machine Agnes Avril DFib joined YHC for some muscle beach meets club rehab action

I’m not going to lie, I just came up with all of that workout on the fly and I don’t have the it written down but here’s my best recollection of what we did

Warmup: the usual, SSHs, ISTs, hillbillies, veggie pickers, don quixote

YHC was having some challenges connecting to Bleep’s fancy blue tooth speaker (t claps Bleep for bringing!) Rump Roast was asked to get the workout started…he was a lil slow on the uptake so YHC quickly took the reigns back over…a lot of moaning during the veggie pickers and hillbillies, sounds like the PAX didn’t do any self care after TID18K

Mosey to the field with blocks

Because this was club rehab I prefaced the lap by saying if you didn’t have it in you to do SSHs, mountain climbers, or anything else to keep the body moving but turns out we’re a bunch of stubborn assholes and all ran a lap

Bicep block work of 21s, slow curls up, slow curls down, upright rows

Core block of jackknifes, LBCs, Freddy Mercury’s, uptown crunches, flutter kicks, box cutters, heels to heaven, rosalitas

Repeato the run, bicep, core

Repeato again, throw in some Pilate leg action, a few burpees, lil baby arm circles

Meatball called YHC out that we only ran 3 laps at 6:14 so I told him he had 60 seconds to get one more in, he did but a lot of other PAX tried to be hero’s and took considerably longer than 60 seconds and caused us to go over time by a few minutes

Seemed like a decent amount of mumblechatter throughout but YHC was counting a inordinate amount but hope y’all feel like you got some good core and will be beach ready in now time!

MOLESKIN:
YHC had promised Ina there would be no #mustang this AM, but when it was 0627 and Ina wasn’t there, YHC debated doing it since it had been so long. But, alas, Ina rolled up in the minivan at 0628, so we moseyed to the trail.
Avril had received a verbal from Bleep, but like many college bound athletes, Bleep changed his commitment the day of. Not sure if he received some impermissible benefits or not. The Infractions Committee is currently investigating and thus he may receive probation or a cervesa reduction for a couple months.
Overall a good time had on the trail with some complaints from Alright Alright about others getting a head start, Avril going a little hard on a few quarters and Ina doing his best dazed and confused of “I stay the same speed, but everyone else keeps getting faster.”
Five PAX did their best #westside impression by hitting up Starbucks after. No PSLs were purchased, but some HIM did purchase coffees for their M’s (Alright Alright and Avril). YHC, Chairman Mao, and Gambler did not partake in the purchase or drinking of caffeinated beverages.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

YHC thought a lot about the Q Source topic this week and asked the PAX to continue to look for ways to find positive disruption.  Use Positivity and Empathy to gain support and allies as we make change.

MOLESKIN: YHC wanted to do something different and since it had been a while since KTT ventured to bishop avenue YHC thought that was perfect.  Most of the PAX had never done this version of KTT which was a huge plus.  Using a coin to determine if we ran the shorter or longer distance was a fun idea that seemed to get a lot of excitement.  Despite Rump Roast’s (j/k TCLAPS) sabotage it was a great turnout.  We focused on upper body and core and got about 4 miles in.  Overall great morning with the PAX

MOLESKIN:
Bleep started the nonsense of trying to exceed “700 cals” during the 45min workout. YHC took that as a challenge and started the PAX off with a bang out of the gate with burpees. The warmup consisted of a mile of running and 5 exercises increasing by 5 reps starting with 10. YHC heard the usual compliments of Rump Roast but after the second lap YHC didn’t hear any mumblechatter from Rump. Sound Machine stayed strong and didn’t modify but understood his limits. Good to have DFib and Aaarrrggghh back out there to keep the mumblechatter high. The #westside is happy to see the return of Special Sauce after a birthday beatdown over the weekend. The sexiest of all panthers, our very own Sex Panther, was back in the saddle again after getting some recovery rest. Quite a bit of mumblechatter about the playlist but was strange that everyone sang along the entire 45min. Special Sauce also made the recommendation that YHC make the playlist for the 6 mile ruck during TID18k. Watch out DJ Icebox! This wasn’t the beatdown we all wanted but it was the beatdown we all deserved.

MOLESKIN:
YHC had plans for some bear crawling and other fun grass related exercises, but the rain made the field extremely muddy with standing water, so YHC decided to Omaha back to the basics. YHC planned to do the entire Dirty McDeuce in cadence, but quickly realized the Jump Squats would be rather difficult to do in cadence, so YHC pivoted to making those OYO.  

Some grumbling during the punishment burpees, including Sauce trying to convince YHC that Meatball felt caught up after about 4 burpees, but we did all of them. A lot of talk about where Dirtbag and Icebox were, with the assumption being traffic was keeping them from the beatdown with all the rain.

AA did some grumbling with the backwards running and the large number of squats, but YHC was feeling a leg heavy day. Overall a good day and we were able to mostly avoid the rain and mud.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Thankful for the men that got up and got better. Was a good change of pace to the week of VERY strong bootcamps.

MOLESKIN:
Rump Roast brought up the idea of rucking last night and YHC thought it was a great plan. This week has been a bootcamp beatdown day after day! We haven’t rucked much to try and prepare for TID18k so YHC decided to get in a few miles this morning. Great time for mumblechatter – at least most of the way until Rump lost his breath. Lots of chatter between Stingray and Rump Roast around intermittent fasting. YHC chose to listen because YHC has never tried fasting.
