AO: Lake Highlands North Park (#theharbor)
F3 DISCLAIMER & WELCOME: Given, with COVID disclaimer

WARM-O-RAMA:
SSH x20, IST x15, Hillbilly x12

THA THANG:
Split into four groups for 4x5x5 with Pull-ups, Swerkins, Dips and Squats

Mosey to the parking lot for 10 sprints, with a Mary break after 5

Mosey to the benches for Irkins x10, Step ups x20, and Derkins x10

Mosey over to the hill for 10 more sprints, this time up the hill with another Mary break after 5

Mosey back to the parking lot for some backwards sprints, then a shuffle sprint and karaoke sprint

Mosey back to the start where the burpee rule was in effect so 6 burpees. Then finished up the workout with Gorilla Squats x12 and OH Claps x12

MARY:
Did the following exercises throughout the workout:
Uptown crunch x12, Rosalita x12, Rugby situps x12, 

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC talked about what the CoT means and encourage PAX to be vulnerable with each other to help keep each other accountable. YHC shared his recent struggles with his M and taking her for granted/harboring resentment lately. Good input from several PAX from improving communication, keeping the word Grace in mind, and trying to do little things for the M (giving gifts/cookies, doing the dishes). Much appreciated men!

MOLESKIN:
YHC planned on doing some running after Slippy’s brutal tabata workout yesterday that only involved about .5 miles of movement. YHC showed up a few minutes early to get a lay of the land and find good sprinting spots. Classified saw this and assumed that YHC was looking for a portapotty (a smart assumption).

The PAX were none to thrilled about the sprints. Slippy had a blowout after about sprint 4 and went to the non-mobile workout for the rest of the workout. Rump Roast 2.0 was out in full force and full of positivity. Sauce pointed out multiple times that “we’ve already done these” as we returned back to prior stops for the workout. We discovered Classified has quite the backpedaling speed and may have been misused during his gridiron glory days as a lineman when he should have been a corner.

Slightly less mumblechatter than normal, which YHC attributes to the PAX sucking wind and having almost constant movement. YHC will definitely continue to incorporate sprints and pullups in future Qs.

Dual QOTY for Retail Therapy

Hey Dirtbag hold my beer real quick…

Special Sauce Trash Panda Stingray Stingray Meatball Slushii Rump Roast Draper sound machine DFib Jobu Sex Panther Bleep Phelps (Tim) Noah “Don’t Call me Baby Shark” Phelps, Shifty McCoy, and Sally joined AlrightAlright and YHC for the first ever Dual QOTY beatdown

Warmup:
SSH, ISTs, Veggie Pickers

The Thang (alternating Q’s with every other song)
AlrightAlright took us up to rock out with our Camp Gladiator friends to flex our muscles and intimidate them with our EDM beats

Then I ran us to one of the parking decks and stopped us on an incline for some Mary to work on the lower core

AlrightAlright made us do some spider man push ups and and mountain climbers…Draper and other PAX showed some genuine concern about “just” holding a plank for a bit and were disappointed that planking was the exercise we were doing

OG Icebox Alert!
Listening to Baby Shark, SSH with burpees every time they said “Shark” (basically two minutes of burpees)

AlrightAlright ran us up to the top of the parking deck and had us doing bear crawl suicides

Because YHC is a sadist we followed that up with a few minutes of Arms by Mrs Icebox

AlrightAlright wasn’t done bear crawling so we had to bear crawl down a flight of stairs and followed that up with some irkins

YHC then went for a mosey to a different parking deck and was disappointed in the lack of hustle by the PAX so started to burpee, even more confusion by the PAX as I’ve never instituted the burpee rule during a Q which led to 21 burpees once the 6 was in (would’ve been 40 if AlrightAlright had been doing the burpees)

AlrightAlright took a page of of the DJ Icebox instruction manual and had us mosey to a big stairwell for Mony Mony dips (listening to Billy Idol’s Mony Mony, hold a back plank and do a dip every time they say “Mony”)…Jobu asked how many that was and I promised I’d do a real OG workout where I count out the number of reps for each song

AlrightAlright then took us back where we started to roll around and do merkins on ant hills (clearly his tolerance for ant bites is greater than his disdain for doing core exercises on concrete)

Someone must have said something because AlrightAlright used some words my playlist wasn’t allowed to use and made us run around Starbucks, taunting us with what we could be doing instead of working out

YHC then rocked out with 4 more minutes of Mary on the ant hills since we were already contaminated

Announcements:

Draper is kicking us off of Band 6/1 so Teasip doesnt have to repost my backblasts on the website

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.

MOLESKIN:
YHC was ready to exchange his Q for another day because of his recovery from Growruck. Oatmeal talked him into co-Qing so we could share the lessons we learned with the group. Most of the complaining came from the soreness of the Pax who attended GrowRuck 2 days before.

We are influencers in some sphere of influence we are in, whether at home, work, with PAX, or friends. How are you influencing in a positive direction or in a negative direction, F3 is about male leadership and we must be aware we are always leading and someone is always watching us lead. Not watching a creepy way…kids, friends, co-workers, and so on.

MOLESKIN:

 A LOT of soreness and discussion about the number of bear crawls the day before at SCT, causing some modifications for the group. Over all a great morning with the men of The Harbor.

QIC: Teasip

AO: The Harbah!
F3 DISCLAIMER & WELCOME: Given with the COVID disclaimer

WARM-O-RAMA:
SSH x20, IST x15, Hillbillies x15

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

MARY:

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
2. 2ndF event this Saturday at Vector Brewing. M’s, 2.0’s and pets welcome!

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.

MOLESKIN:
Discussion about rain, weather forecasts and sideways rain since the patio was very wet and limited the exercises…we learned a lot about the FNG and how names were given.  We were all surprised that Oatmeal wasn’t familiar with Stingray’s origin, but were equally surprised of Oatmeal’s origin.  YHC’s Upset Special was also discovered at the end of the workout…peck em Eagles, peck em!
