Christian Trask

Six men got better this morning in perfect weather.  I was proud to lead today and think this Pool Party Wednesday AO is going to hit its stride over the next few months.  EH boys, EH… A year ago today, YHC lost a dear friend, Christian Trask.  Christian was intense, creative, adventurous, methodical, obsessively organized, […]

Carioca Hump Day

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

YHC was greeted by 5, wait 6 eager PAX on a fine TPC/Hump Day.  Typical Wahoo Q with running and a few exercises.  If it had been a little darker Duval (Seattle – correct?) might have snuck in unnoticed and saved the little burpee penalty.  I felt like I was about to fall over in […]

All About Me

Nine men got better today under great conditions at the Pool Party.  Everything was moving along swimmingly until Wrangler dropped into the pool and forced some burpees.  We welcomed an FNG (Skyline) who might give Osteen and Pyro a run for their money.  Joking aside- today was literally all about me.  If you read ‘Freed […]

6 Pax enjoyed the moderate temperatures, super flat field and tunes led by the Foos to welcome another beautiful day.  Wednesdays 5:30AM new workout at Sunshine Park in Jacksonville Beach.  Great facility, open to all men, free of charge (unlike our Gladiator friends who do have the jump on us by posting at 5AM).  EH […]

Post Gobble Wobble

13 Pax including 2 FNGs enjoyed the 7AM post Turkey Day Poseidon workout.  Something borrowed- something gained was the theme of today’s fun and games.  Each phase of the workout was  borrowed from the genius of other Jax Pax workouts and mashed-up like the casserole feast of two days prior. Warmup – SSH, Michael Phelps, […]

Unbending Kindness

13 men joined at Badlands for twisting detox and a few sun salutations in the gloom.  YHC’s mood was enhanced by the jolly mumble chatter of the other Pax attending Broga and the Beatles/Stones/Zepplin/CCR tunes.  Word of the day is Kindness. “There are different ways to practice kindness. One way to be kind is to open your […]

11 men enjoyed the wee hours of zero-dark 30 to get better and challenge their inner warriors.  Turns out a little stretch was in order after the beatdowns delivered by Gravy & Mc “I’m not a fasthole”Dreamy turned runner earlier in the week. We started and ended the workout the same with a little peaceful […]

You Get What You Give

18 men got better in the beauty of a Jax Beach sunrise today.  YHC was pleased to lead his 1st Poseidon although at times he felt like he was mad-hattering the experience.  A good showing and times by all. Warm Up: SSH,  Imperial Walkers, Arms Circles F&B, Moroccan Night Clubs, Airbag’s Special Rodeo Chinooks, Cherry […]

Warmup- SSH, Tempo Merkins, Arm Circles (Little Baby), Bobble Head Swirls, Hillbillies, Cherry Pickers, Don Quixotes, In Cadence, Limp Member (always OYO). Mosey- Roughly 27 […]
