Now where the hell is that link to the Exicon???

  • The PAX: MudBlood (FNG Welcome), Worthington (F3 Puget Sound Welcome), Toxic (respect), Drone, BigBird, PUD, Feud, Boucher (respect), Synapse (respect), Heisenberg

Its a good thing Snuffy posts the Q schedule on slack every week. If he didn’t, this morning could have been a complete charlie foxtrot with a missing Q who forgot he signed up. Not that YHC being there to Q means it would be any less of a charlie foxtrot.

Speaking of charlie foxtrots ……

Warm-Up / COP: 

Circle up on the field. Welcome our brother Worthington from F3 Puget Sound and a FNG from Charlotte that he brought along for the ride.

YHC explained that the Mothership was clearly not a professional, and for that matter, not even a ranked amateur.  Hell, rumor was he wasn’t even good at these things. In fact, Men’s Fitness magazine ran an expose on YHC and declared if you were going to join one of his workouts, it should be totally free.

So, no problem there ……. and gave the sound advice that if he is leading

So, as per YHC tradition, SSH leads it off with a mystery number which holds a meaning. Today’s number was 41. A right answer on the meaning of 41 meant we did not have to do the 10 burpees that was next on the list. The PAX cheered when BigBird nailed it by stating it will be the 41st annual running of the Gate Rive Run this year. Unfortunately, we still had to do a different set of 10 flounder burpees since Flounder wondered in Slack if arriving late to one of YHC’s Q’s was worth a 10 burpee penalty as long as you can miss the SSHs.   YHC figured the PAX should do both so they could provide Flounder an answer upon his return.

At this point, the PAX did a prisoner jog (hands behind head) the long way to the parking lot.  The GRR Runners wanted to eliminate sprints today to save their legs. YHC humbly agreed knowing that he personally hates sprints. Mainly because his sprints look like everyone else’s jog. Embarrassing really …

To prepare for the day, YHC spent hours, if not just minutes, combing of the F3 Exicon and randomly, I mean carefully, selecting 4 thangs to do.

Thang 1

ASCENDING CURB CRAWL – Line up on a curb. Bear Crawl to facing opposite curb and complete one Derkin.  Crawl back and complete two Derkins and so on and so forth until you have done 10.  YHC felt really bad because because the FNG did not have gloves.  YHC felt really stupid because neither did YHC.  Maybe Men’s Fitness had a point ……

Prisoner Jog back to far side of the field.

Thang 2

LAZY DORA – Partner up. Partners perform 100 Merkins, 200 LBCs, & 300 Squats as a team. Here’s the catch…no running. P1 starts with 10 Merkins while P2 planks, then switch. Continue switching between Merkins and plank until 100 total Merkins reached. Next, while P1 does 20 LBCs, P2 performs a 6″ leg hold until P1 is finished, then switch. Continue switching until all 200 LBCs are completed. Finally, P1 does 25 squats while P2 does squat hold, then switch. Continue switching until 300 total squats are completed.

Much mumblechatter once PAX  realized ‘LAZY’ is a very misleading word.  

Thang 3

CROWD PLEASER –  Essentially a Merkin followed by a Groiner.  Work up from a 1:1 ratio to 5:5. (Do 5 Merkins followed by 5 Groiners). We did 3 sets. 

YHC should be chastised. His instructions were horrible.  To be proper, these should have been done as a pyramid. We will resolve at YHC’s next Q.

Thang 4

PROTRACTOR –  While on six, PAX, working clockwise,  call out various angles to hold legs at, such as 10, 30, 45, 90 degrees. Regular way is to hold legs together but Q may call split or 3 dimensional where legs are held at the angle called but apart.

Out of thangs to do, we did a prisoner jog the long way back to the virtual flag.

Naked Moleskin / BOM:

Our FNG was renamed Mudblood.  See PUD for any questions.

YHC talked about fellowship,  this month’s core value, and how it is the main principle that drives who we are and what we do.  YHC and others shared how this group has fundamentally changed who we are as men.  Raising up so we can raise those up around us. 

Prayer request for Courtney. May she continue to heal and thrive. 

Prayer request to watch over all the older 2.0s traveling on spring break. Keep them safe and allow them to make better decisions than we probably did.

Prayer request for our GRR runners. May they be safe and exceed their goals.

As always, please remember that today is the perfect day to make a positive impact on another person’s life.

Until next time.

  1. Great Q Xenu! Men’s Fitness had it all wrong, you rocked it like a true professional (at least by F3 Standards). Funny thing about the gloves, I typically never wear them (unless it’s cold). I was happy to have them on today!
