Billy Madison workout – From the Exicon: Inspired by Billy Madison’s journey through back through school, this routine involves a running loop and exercise per grade.  For best effects, perform routine on school grounds. Begin with a loop (ideally single-file line leader style) to simulate the grade, followed by an exercise with 12 reps as the exam.  This concludes 1st grade.  Run the loop again, followed by the 1st grade exercise x 12 reps plus a new exercise x 12 reps.  This concludes 2nd grade. Continue with the loop and adding an exercise each time until you’ve completed one loop and exercise combo for each of the 12 grades. 

Exercises were as follows with a lap around the stadium after each round:

Bonnie Blairs




Yeah Thrusts

Merkins (time ran short at this point so YHC called a jail break back to La Mad)


Had a few minutes when we got back to the parking lot so we did some Homer to Marge and then 6” hold until time

YHC prayed us out

YHC had two workouts in mind for the gloom and decided on Billy Madison when Gambler introduced his FNG since it would be a more social/keep us together.  The running exercise combo got to the PAX and there was very little mumblechatter from the get go.  YHC recorded just over four miles and kudos to B Cup and Sweep for making it through a tough workout.  However, YHC determined us to be remedial students since we only made it through the sixth grade, but I was quickly reminded by PAX that the lap was in excess of a normal quarter mile.  So maybe we are just extremely thorough students.  Goal would be to continue training and see how much we can improve.

Adieu to Bachelorhood

Done during the workout

YHC thanked the PAX for being there with him these last 3.5 (or 4.5, YHC can never remember) years with F3 and the improvement YHC has made in fitness (tummy fat loss) and general manhood. YHC would not be where he is today, about to marry the woman of his dreams without F3. Thank you

The jokes were funny and frequent of course. Several PAX mentioned YHC should only need about 3 reps of pickle pounders for the big night and there were probably wasn’t a need for any other type of exercise. During the Apple turnover, YHC mentioned to stop at second base, to which Sally and Draper responded “no now you can go all the way to home base” and the continuation of bases reached was asked to which YHC had no response. Draper requested I note these for the backblast, so feel free to comment if I missed some jokes. When lunges were announced, Draper had some not kind words for Oatmeal after their EC was apparently heavy on the legs with them carrying their coupon and ruck for over 2.5 miles. So #tclaps to them and PowPow (who had to leave early) for doing the EC. There was a heavy dose of Rump F-bombs today, which YHC always likes to hear since it means the workout is tough. The Double Merkin Burpees produced quite the groaning, as well as the burpee suicide. YHC appreciated everyone coming out to show support as YHC bids adieu to the single life.

1. Siesta VQ next Saturday, 8/22 at 0700. Come out and support him!
2. 2.0 workout to follow at 0900, should be about 30 minutes.

Give it away

YHC was happy to have a Co-Q with this beachdown. Today was all about getting the body physically ready for summer time (although summer started months ago in TX). Some mumblechatter about the music choices. Good to keep variety in the music to dull the pain of the coupon work. Great COT/BOM at the end – GIVE IT AWAY. Everyone. Go out there and be a better man and watch it spread. Great continual showings from the FNG’s that were brought out last week.
