As always I really enjoy leading this group of men and leaders within our community– today we had 12 LEADERS on a wet start!!!. Heck of a job by all and I was very impressed with Centerfold and Brutus who came out to support the PAX and Mash while injured, these two dudes pushed themselves with a ton of AB work on a day that would have been easy to sleep in on a raining day– NICE JOB FELLOWS– Also is was awesome to see Radar back out with the PAX and very impressed with the progress- this was not a easy workout .. Zin as always brings everything he has got and was trying to lap everyone when running around the island- Showoff. Thank goodness I got Bottlecap during the AB partner work as I pretty much just laid there until he finished running knowing he would make up for my lack of AB execution.. Sorry.. haha —Schneider you continue to push yourself dude, hell of a job. Floppy Disk is killing it this dude is new to us and has been out multiple times since he started and he is hanging with the PAX, nice work man. It is always good when Legal-Zoom is out with the PAX when you are Qing since you never have to look back to find out where the PAX is cause you can hear that running behind you the whole time– dude can run for miles but sounds like he is stomping grapes while doing it.. I appreciate Damascus and Posse coming out to support the Chicken the OG’s where crushing it as usual even though Damascus seemed a bit angry on round 2 of Bear Crawl Ladder- Lastly  good ole Recalculating , something was different in the air today- he seemed positive/happy and was killing it today– was it the weather or is this the new Recalculating for the new year?? hum….   hell of a job by all..


Tooth brushes and Tooth paste collect over next week for Ray for Hope ( PERFERABLLY not used)- See Bottlecap, Dana, Shop Dawg, Dancing Bear ( you night need to go to his house though).

Wishing Centerfold and Brutus a speedy recovery

Itsy Bitsy Spider

The Chicken got called out of the bullpen today in relief of Recalculating having a hurt back, hoping for a quick recovery bro. When I pulled up today I saw that the numbers were lower than normal for a Flash workout and I started to think…….were they down due to the holiday? poor marketing on the site Q ( uhmm that’s me and Rockwell opps) ? The IPC challenge this past weekend? maybe it was none on the above and it was the GIGANTIC SPIDER in the darn parking lot had us BIG OLD BAD F3 guys a tad scared while also being intrigued like we were school kids…. YIKES that was one big spider.. At one point during the workout I might have overheard a PAX member say we should get a saddle for that spider so Goodfella can ride him…..

Today I wanted keep mileage fairly low but keep moving while throwing in some goo ole fashion tummy work. Although our numbers were low today the group pushed through and for Deadwood and Good Fella to even show up after what they complete this weekend is insane- nice work fellows. It is great to see Big Ten back in the mix on regular occasions as I think the real reason he is back is he missed us. Schneider you continue to push yourself at every workout and dang dude you were sprinting at the end, nice. Thanks for allowing me to lead this group this morning..


Many Pax’s are sore this morning- has anyone ever seen Deadwood and Good Fella being the 6’s? 6 of the 8 people at Flash today can say this was true so if they deny it we have proof– If these two guys were this sore I can only imagine what the others fell like- Hell of a job to all who participated.

Thanks to Good Fella for taking us out as well as sharing a truly inspiring Hope Challenge about where he was in life 10 years ago verse were he is now and how F3 and finding religion has help him tremendously. Heck of a way to bring Hope Challenge to its end…

Great morning for the PAX. All Pax members pushed themselves — we ended a great day only to be taken out by Flipper who stepped up with a great message… ( excellent words today young lad). I appreciate the opportunity to lead this fine group of men today.

FYI- This young group of men Flipper, Joy, and a new FNG ( Nutmeg) are pushing themselves and others around them- these dudes as teenagers are impressive as I would have never showed up with a bunch of old dudes at their age to do what we do— impressive to say the least..


Mad Dog- basically strong armed people for Q school – hopefully it worked 6-7 light workout at Cuthbertson tomorrow followed by paperwork and fellowship from 7-8 at Chic-Fil-A

Welcome a new FNG- Nutmeg– who is visited from out of town but is staying in the Briars and the Crest so we get extra credit– sorry Lawson !!

#tclap | 6

I like Big BRICKS and I cannot lie!!

After being strong armed by Banjo into taking a Q at Chiseled I was glad 13 great men showed up at the workout this morning. I must say the Chicken had butterflies as it was his first Q at Chiseled!! But as any good Q does for his first time, he shameless steals ideas from other Q’s . So without anyone knowing he flew into and perched up at Wedding Singers Q last week at chiseled and stolen many ideas– hahah — cannot trust those darn Chickens !!

The Warm Up

Grab your TWO BRICKS that will be with you all morning

15 low slow squats with bricks in hand

15 merkins while planking on bricks

20 Mountain Climbers

Lap around Mount Chiseled with Bricks in hand

The Thang

Partner up for some gear work !!

5 Stations set up and each station has 3 exercises ( 1min and 15 secs each exercise and rest 15 secs)– we all did 7 stations

Station 1- P 1Sledge Hammer on Big tire/ P2 lunge walk with Bricks/ together 10 hand slap merkins with bricks and 10 squats with bricks.

Station 2- P1 Squat jabs with bricks/ P2 Merkins on bricks as many as possible/ together 10 hand slap merkins with bricks and 10 squats with bricks.

Station 3- P1 curls with dumbbells /P2 Run 40 yards (ish) with bricks and do a burpee and repeat/ together 10 hand slap merkins with bricks and 10 squats with bricks.

After the station work we had 4 minutes left– Time for the Merkin Bear Crawl Ladder with BRICKS!! YEEHAWW

The PAX breaks into groups of 3-4 members and line up in a plank line front to back while planking on their bricks. The Pax Member in the back bear crawls on his bricks to the front of the line and the whole PAX in the group does a merkin together– Continue this until all PAX complete three Brick Bear Crawls ( ugh)..


As always in was a great pleasure leading a group of men like this and I appreciate Banjo asking me to step up. The PAX worked hard today as usual and everyone pushed themselves.

Just a little side note I almost got us kicked out of chiseled today– While getting out of the chicken truck to load the gear I notice my truck was still moving. So apparently I was so excited to get gear loaded up I forgot to put truck in park.. I had to run and jump back in the truck and slam on the brake ( came about 5-6 ft ) from running head-on into the transformer.. That would have been a great story but most like would have got us kicked out.. whewww. Now that would have been ironic though, getting kicked out of a site for blowing up a transformer and one of the site Qs is Fusebox?? hummm


3rd F opportunity Five stones 7am Sunday- (Philippian’s 1) does not matter where you are in your faith walk– come out..

Watch Tower is moving to New Town starting June 4th.

Gerber has Q tomorrow at Floater and it is birthday tomorrow. Good Luck!!

A Large Flock

A larger than normal turnout showed today for ignition, 14 people which is the same number that was at the usually packed Flash on Monday– Wonder why such a large crowd– was it they thought the Chicken would be a easy ? was it they thought the Chicken would pass out and need CPR or few extra hands to help carry is feathery ass back to the truck? was it the nice weather? one will never know but it was great leading this mixed group of Gazelles and Clydesdales although a few times it was like herd cats- The Gazelles were in normal form today waiting to be released to RUN…..

Mosey to front of school for a few more dips 30, 20, and 20 and mosey back to starting point just in time with 15 seconds to SPARE– WHEW……


The run in Champion Forest was a bad idea the Gazelles had too much freedom to run here between pain stations and us Clydesdales almost died.. Needed more pain stations as you cannot herd a Gazelle if you are sucking wind about 3 blocks from them– Rubbermaid to the rescue– Chicken you need to modify, so we added pain stations on the way back .Everyone pushed extremely hard today as usual and I appreciate the large group on my first Q at ignition as the mixture of Clydesdales and Gazelles was just what I needed. I had nightmares days leading up to this that when I showed up I would only see Easy Button, Hollywood, Bottlecap, Dasher, Gerber and Deadwood starting at me waiting to start. I did have plan if that happened and it was to twist my ankle getting out of the truck, thank goodness I did not have to Flop so early in the morning.

Once again great job fellows and thanks for the support FYI we logged 4.75 miles- 5 miles is what I am being told… NICE !!

Chickens, Bear Crawl?

6 great men showed up at the workout this morning at Conviction. The group was small but they all pushed themselves in a a fast pace mix bags of tricks the Chicken had up his Feathers.

Mosey to front of school for some bear crawls ( love me some bear crawls)

Mosey to Play ground area or otherwise called Chucky’s playground by Tubberware for some partner work-

partner up and one partner lunge walks while other partner runs around track, when he catches his partner 3 hand slap merkins then continue- each partner does two laps.

Mosey to covered area near buses and get in groups of 3 for the bear crawl/ merkin/ plank ladder– all partners are in plank position in a line from front to back all team members do a merkin then guy in back bear crawls to front then team will complete another merkin- all guys need to bear crawl 3 times.

Mosey around buses then get in group to complete merkin/air presses- jack Webb style- 1 merkin/ 4 air presses – got to 10 merkins and 40 air presses.. NICE WORK..

Mosey to front of school for one last press before time is out

Wall squats/Squat/Jabs- Jack Webb style– wall squat to full squats 1 squat/4 jabs- got to 10 full squats and 40 jabs– just in time.


The lunges around the track and the burpee ladder pretty much ruined my day but I am proud to have led such a great group of guys this morning. Few learnings from todays workout-

Tupperware- has only one speed and does not fully understand how to run slowly

Rubbermaid- should always be counted on to pick up the Q when he is out of breathe and cannot count anymore – thank you

Hermie- although has missed a few workouts still has it and pushed himself today- great job man

Bonhoeffer- 3rd time working out with this man and he always impresses- dude killed the lunge walk

Woody- 1st time working out with him and hope not the last, he pushed through and he is no stranger to killing the bear crawls unlike me.. hate them..
