Blindspots

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

It was a humid morning at the Badlands but it did not stop 11 men from defeating the fartsack and joining me for a workout. On slack, YHC put out a little teaser that asked two questions- what are your blindspots? Are there areas of your life where you have mailed in it? The PAX […]

Be the Man in the Arena

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

8 men posted for my VQ– thanks for the support.  Typical cool July morning with no humidity. I probably went a little fast– less time for the Pax to bust my chops about something I screwed up.  Peg’s HR monitor showed we got after it– hit 191 at one point and stayed in the red […]

The Hoff

4 Pax showed up this morning awaiting a beatdown.  This was my third Q at the Pool Party.  Still trying to get the hang of it.  Unfortunately, YHC forgot his speaker this morning.  Perhaps it worked out for the better, because there were some 80’s and 90’s tracks on there from Knight Rider and Baywatch […]

A thinned out Pax posted under a full moon to participate in a street light rich workout. The thought of a Run day must have kept the others in their cozy beds but they were mistaken. The Q almost stuck to his claim of 4 exercises.  Technically, we didn’t, but in spirit we did… Warm […]

Birthday Beatdown

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

26 men were ready to P-A-R-T-Y… they knew Badlands turned 2yrs old on July 13th, and they would not miss the festivities. They met at center field and were tested immediately—the dreaded Lindsay Lohan was their first challenge. Having been given party hats (and warned to keep them throughout the workout or face a 20 […]

It was a beautiful day for a FREE Men’s Workout!  The title does not refer to YHC! You either love or hate Coupon days! Heisenberg was kind enough to point out that nobody had signed up to Q #Anchor so YHC figured he can typically wing a pretty solid Q. The roll-call was sounded, Coupons […]
