MOLESKIN:
YHC showed up 15 min early to checkout field conditions and they were just as bad as expected! Nice and muddy. Classified and Teasip were already EC rucking before YHC arrived. During warm ups PAX ran the Indian Run. Many PAX pointed out that it was the fastest Indian Run in F3 Dallas history. First exercise were Bear Crawls and Crawl Bears in the mud. Draper had a hard time controlling his Crawl Bear. He kept veering off diagonally instead of straight back. YHC found a cheat code with Muddy Crawl Bears. Keep your feet on the ground and slide backward while pushing with your hands. Many PAX loved/hated the Australian Snow Angels as well as the Broad Jumps w/coupons. All the PAX enjoyed the ALARM (Arms, Legs, Abs, “R” exercise, “M” exercise) template. YHC forgot to take a picture.

MOLESKIN:
7 Brave souls showed up this morning to run in the rain. There was a lot of grumbling going on about how everyone was sore from the MURPH on Monday. Apparently, the rest of the AO’s so far this week kept the bar set high too. Avril was midpack for the first half and then found some sort of reserve energy from somewhere and was pushing Alright Alright on the back half. This lead  many of the PAX to accuse Avril of pulling a Chairman and only going half speed at the beginning.

Moleskin:
 I wanted to do something different this morning. SO starting with the normal “template” of a workout, I started over. Warm-up with no Side Straddle Hops created a little mumblechatter as we moved to the field. There wasn’t as much interaction between the group as a whole, but there were in essence 3 groups each I’m sure. In my group, it was mainly Chairman, Sauce and me… I got a “Fuck You Rump” out of both of them, which I’m considering a win! I wasn’t sure if we would get done with two rounds and have time left or not. It looks like not. I think this would be more fun with a larger group and maybe add some running.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC thanked the PAX for posting this morning and explained how it gives me energy and enthusiasm and hopefully I reflect that back to the PAX throughout the beatdown. Encouraged the men to think about their Jester today (The Daily Discipline over the Temptation of the Flesh that Hinders Acceleration) with the intention that will lead to acceleration across all 3 Fs, especially leadership within our families.

MOLESKIN:
YHC always likes to take the opportunity to get some “pulling” work in (Aussie Merkins), the imbalance we all have in our strength and stamina for “pushing” exercises (Merkins and OH Press) compared to “pulling” exercises (Pullups and Rows) is significant.

We found Phelps on the Katy Trail about  3/4 mile into our 2 mile timed run. Turns out he showed up early, but thought he was late (left his phone at home) and took off for the trail before any of the rest of us arrived.

The PT test standard was taken from the PT test that was applied to the men at GTE22 (GrowRuck Training Event 22) this past weekend in Myrtle Beach. Many of the ~100 men in Myrtle Beach failed the test. This morning, four of six PAX failed the PT test, but for Draper, Aaarrrggghhh and Trash Panda it was only due to missing the sit-up standard by a single rep. They can definitely meet the standard. Gutenberg needs to get better at Merkins, just like YHC did when he started F3, this will 100% happen all he needs is consistency. Every one of the PAX this morning completed the 2 mile run with plenty of time to spare – good thing given that this is a running AO.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC prayed us out.  Extolled the virtues of Shield Lock groups and implored the men to seek out another man of similar age, values, stage of life and connect. Shield Lock groups are there to increase accountability and discuss real issues that we face as men. YHC has formed a Shield Lock with F150, Phelps and DFib and will report progress as we develop deeper relationships and get into meatier issues (

MOLESKIN:

AA’s Slaughter Starter was not a crowd favorite as YHC asked him to take over the warm up so I could quickly grab my weight vest after being shame goaded into it by Slippy & AA.  Slippy wowed the crowd by announcing he was wearing 50lbs in his vest to start the workout, however I think he quickly reassessed once we started the workout.  Mumblechatter was varied throughout.  Rump Roast accused YHC of not knowing what he was doing during the “mucho” exercises, but as I recall I was spent at this point.

I was a little disappointed to only see 2 other PAX but, confessed to them both in the CoT that if they wouldn’t have shown up, I WOULD have gone back home so T-Claps to Classified and Sound Machine! Know that getting out of bed and showing up today undoubtedly made me better today!

From not starting with SSH’s to promptly leaving Germany Park, I wanted today’s beatdown to be different and I need to focus on my lower body strength. The warm-up and curb crawl didn’t eat up as much time as I had anticipated.

MOLESKIN:
Good time today. Thanks to all the PAX for showing out and welcoming YHC back to Q’ing.

H/t to Jobu for bringing the Chicken Alfredo, all PAX carb-loaded up 5 minutes before kickoff. This gave many of the PAX incredible energy and strength. Supermen out there. And only one chunder.. YHC will let you guess who.

Trash Panda was unfortunately a couple minutes late, incurring 20 penalty burpees. Meanwhile, the rest of the PAX did flutter kicks. This brought loads of mumblechatter.

Rump Roast brought an upbeat positive attitude today, even thanking the Q for pushing his limits instead of cursing him. A shocking change of heart.. will it last?!

Silent Bob was happy to “see the other side of the park.” Not necessary to get a good workout to leave the immediate AO, but definitely can be a good change of pace :).

Rain mostly held off. Prayed to get better and use our gifts for good.

Everyone stayed after for some 2nd F. The glue, baby!

Happy Friday.

While I may never be an Army Ranger… I AM one meat slingin’ son of a beep test! 11 men joined me this morning to explore the AO, Shops at Park Lane. The parking was nice and easy at 0524; we all meet up in front of the Starbucks. F150 waits to tell me last night at 930pm that his CG insider advised him they could be back on the property… Good news right, then he tells me they HAD to get permission. So I’m a little freaked we may get the boot. The warm-up was just long enough for the security guard to get bored watching us and for Alright Alright to start moanin’ and groanin’ about us staying in one place for our entire 1st workout. Also, some friendly debate about YHC’s arms not hurting because I didn’t do the Murph yesterday. to which I replied that it was voluntary and I didn’t want to do it. I stand my ground, I’m grown and don’t have to do it!

We then moseyed down to the stairs for an elevated learning session. I’ll be working on the Beef 101 class throughout the summer to get it just right.  We started with B.O.M.B.S which for time, I Omaha’d into BOMB. It quickly drew a few mean mugs and side-eyes, along with some mumbles which I took as a good sign. At the top of the stairs, you could see the CG crew in the Whole Paycheck parking lot. Noticing we were getting short on time I called it, as I was realizing bombs took way too long. I skipped Elevens altogether and sort of combined them it Elevated Lazy Dora. Also drawing moans and groans from the crowd. Again we cut it a little short to head back for “Free time”… I had a planned surprise but the drone pilot I found out later fell asleep. Before I could call the exercises some of the crew decide to just sit down and chill. AA was keen enough to point it out so we all did 10x burpees. I got lots of feedback that this was a good one and I know I was smoked. I expect to see each and every one of you men/leaders take some time to Q at this new spot! There are tons of places to see

Back at the launch, we used some benches to pull off a quick Dirty McDuce knock-off, some Mary, and called it a day

YHC had a plan, and it just spiraled out of control once Trash Panda showed up 3 minutes late, to which all PAX paid 3 penalty burpees.

Mosey over to the parking lot behind Lake Highland HS

Jacob’s Ladder (mistakenly called Dora by YHC) 5 burpees, 1 double count lunges … running across the parking lot

Took a page out of Trash Panda’s book and ordered an Indian Run from the parking lot to the trail behind Lake Highlands, all PAX finished strong and kept moving (shout out to Phelps)! 

Moseyed over to the Tennis Courts for an actual Dora: 2 teams of 2 PAX and 1 team of 3 PAX completed 100 squats, 200 merkins and 300 LBCs (150, 300 and 450 for the team of 3) running all 4 tennis courts. 

Had some time left so had to hit YHC’s favorite and bear crawl 2 tennis courts … crawl bear back. 

Moseyed back and finished with some quick Mary

Name-o-rama and YHC prayed us out and thanked god for continue to push us all to keep getting better and stronger each day as well as asking the Lord to bring us together as one nation no matter our differences and continue to cherish our existence here.

MOLESKIN:
Not much mumblechatter throughout the workout, but at first it was a like head shaking at YHC failure to figure out how to do a workout with odd numbers … YHC folded under pressure and just went truly live with it. YHC truly forgets how long of a run that Indian Run can be.  Some mumblechatter was had on the Tennis Courts as Jobu was flying around like a mad man. After the workout Slushii informed YHC that the PAX ran 3 miles … how about that for a Westside led workout? 

Also, Slushii wore his chin condoms.
