With many HIM having stepped up in the last couple months, a good problem has arisen in F3 Jacksonville, finding an open Q-spot. Ah, but alas, YHC was curious and reviewed Sign-up Genius to find out who was Q-ing for Boondocks this weekend.  To his delight, the spot was open.  It had been awhile, so it was time for YHC to take the reins and lead once again.  11 Pax posting of his return Q at Boondocks.  Conditions were cold (for us Floridians) with a “feels like” temperature of 35 degrees.  I guess this means we need to keep moving


  • SSH x20 IC
  • Burpees x10 for late arrival #1 (F&F)
  • Mountain Climbers x15 IC
  • Squats x15 IC
  • Don Quixote x12 IC
  • Reachers x12 IC
  • Burpees x10 OYO for late arrival #2 (Butcher)

It should be noted, following each late arrival Burpees, Farah & Farah, continued with the beatdown under protest, make that double protest.  Apparently he was seeking mercy for not changing his car clock to St. John County time zone when he crossed the county line and was off by a minute. As in MLB, the protest was duly noted, and not to be heard from again.

The Thang

Triple Dodecahedron Dice of Death Mile March

  • Pax ran around Fruit Cove Middle School with one man carrying a 30# ruck and multiple stops along the way to rolling three 12-sided dice with exercises on each side. Ruck passed on to another Pax after each stop.
  • Exercises performed based on the rolls; re-rolls took place for “water breaks” and “run” exercises
  • Two stops for non-dice exercises:
    • At the pavilion at the corner of Race Track Rd and Durbin Creek Blvd for 1 minute of balls to the wall
    • School parking lot for 2 rounds of the Updraft shuffle

Luck was on the side of the PAX during the Dodecahedron Dice of Death Rolls. Not sure if they were aware, but there is a possibility of burpee rolls of 10, 20 and 30 reps. We managed to escape with only one instance of 10 burpees being rolled.

Five Card Stud

  • Pax partnered-up and were dealt 5 cards from the official F3 Workout Deck of Death
    • Exercises as described on the card with reps as follows:
      • #’d cards= value on card + 10 reps
      • Royals = 20 reps
      • Aces= 100 reps
    • Run lap along sidewalk after set
    • Re-draw 5 cards
    • AMRAP until time called


Inspired by Heisenberg during our discussion at BOHICA, YHC not only Q’d this morning, but he injected a little bit of Q-source in today’s COT.  In a man’s “Kingdome” or as Jack LeLanne had coined the “Royalty Race”, there is the King, Queen and Jester.  The King is your physical fitness- we are either accelerating or decelerating, there is no plateau.  When one goal is met, it is important to make another one in order to limit the times of deceleration.  Like in the game of chess, if the King goes down, you lose.  In life, if we are not physically fit, how can we lead others? What impression to we leave our children when we can’t run around with them for 5 minutes before needing a break? The Queenrepresents your nutrition.  The Queen is the most powerful piece on the chessboard.  While you lose once your king is captured, it is very difficult to win without your queen.  Diet is 80% of your overall fitness. You cannot “out King your Queen”.  You will not be able to run a certain number of miles in order to lose weight without making changes to your diet.  The more you exercise, the more your body will strive for calories.  Without making proper dietary choices, the weight will remain. The Jester is whatever holds us back.  It’s that thing that trips us up in life.  It could be an addiction, our temperament, whatever.  It also is something that tends to worsen when we are tired and fatigued.  To combat the Jester, it is important to have a Shield Lock.  Another brother or brothers who will help keep you accountable and see through the tough times.    

It was great to Q a beatdown once again with such HIM.  It was a pleasure and privilege to lead you today.
