Wherefore out thou ROMEO?

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 06/10/2023
  • QIC: Feud
  • The PAX: Animal, Woodshed, Roddy (R), Maxwell, Abacus (FNG- Jeremy), Old Chub (R), Six Mill (R2), Bartles & Jaymes, Propane (FNG- Will), Blue Lights, Crotchless, Third Eye, Extinguisher (R), Double Dribble (FNG- Clinton)

15 pax, including 3 FNGs, rolled out the soggy field for the Nan’tan of F3 River City as he visited Asgard.  In addition to Extinguisher, we had other illustrious guests come up from Gainesville as they are highly interested in bringing F3 Nation to the swamp.  YHC had the Q and felt it appropriate for a second Q-school at Asgard, but this time he incorporated it into the beatdown.  This was a special one for YHC as he looked to honor his uncle who passed this week.


YHC explained to the FNGs and the pax the purpose of proper counting in cadence, holding positions until recover command given, etc. 

  • SSH x20 IC
  • Imperial Walkers x10 IC
  • Hillbillies x10 IC
  • LBAC forward/backwards x12 IC
  • Chinooks x12 IC
  • Moroccan nightclub x12 IC
  • Don Quixote x10 IC
  • Reach throughs x10 IC
  • Squats x10 IC

  • Penalty Burpees 2 x 3 reps for pax incorrectly identifying order of first three core principles of F3

The Thang

YHC’s uncle passed away this week.  He was the oldest brother of his father.  Growing up YHC always felt that his uncle was stuck in the 70’s with his haircut never changing for as long as I could remember.  YHC also remembers his uncle always smiling whenever he was around.  YHC could tell he was a strict father, but he loved his family.  He was married twice and had 8 total kids (7 girls!). Maybe his parent’s had a premonition and named him Romeo!

Partner 1 runs, partner 2 starts exercise then flip-flop when partner 1 returns.

Sometimes as Q, you can spread out and use different parts of your surroundings.  Mosey to church parking lot.

“Romy” as he was called was born August 1, 1935 and passed away on June 7, 2023.  He was 87 years old at the time of his passing.

Round 1:

  • Run to middle Island: 8 burpees
  • Far Island: 19 squats
  • Middle Island: 1 Burpee
  • Baseline: 35 flutter kicks

Round 2:

  • Run to middle Island: 6 burpees
  • Far Island: 20 squats

Mosey back to the playground.  Sometimes as Q you can also use whatever is at your disposal:

  • 6-pack ladder up/down
    • Pull-ups
    • Merkins

YHC reminded all that Q doesn’t waste time as he wanted everyone to get what they paid for.  With 2 minutes to spare, Q new the pax was tired.  He asked that dig deep for one more exercise.

  • Gasser- AYG to cone and back to baseline x2


YHC thanked the pax for allowing him to lead them in a tribute beatdown for his uncle.  He was also thankful for the men from Gainesville coming up to learn more about F3 in efforts to plant another flag in Florida and continue our mission to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men to invigorate male community leadership.  Final 2 core principles reviewed; FNG’s named.
