  • Dolly with KB above chest x 20
  • LBC with KB x 20
  • CCV x 10L/13R
  • CCV x 3L



  • So, Zip-a-dee showed up 20 min. early, then saw YHC setting up tires on the field…next thing you know, Zip-a-dee is speeding out of the parking lot.  He did return though, turns out he was helping a buddy find us. 
  • The “pop quiz” burpees to start the workout were a crowd pleaser.  PAX looked dazed and confused not starting with SSH.
  • YHC originally had more tire work planned, but had to audible as there weren’t enough tires to go around.  Back to the drawing board for next time. 
  • After stopping at 10 CCV on the left, YHC was quickly reminded that Hops normally goes to 13.  Ask and you shall receive…count increased to 13 on the right.  Of course that meant we had to go back and get 3 more on the left.  Balance is good!
  • With rising temps, it doesn’t take long before everyone is drenched in sweat.  Hate to think ahead to what July/August will be like.  Make sure you stay hydrated.  #shedafewpounds


  • F3Dads in Charlotte South. Stay tuned for details but events are being planned for dads and 2.0s (boys and girls) to get together for some physical activity and fellowship. Plan for Saturdays in June…details forthcoming.
  • F3 recently started a workout at the Charlotte Rescue Mission and would now like to donate gear to the men there.  If you have any gear (shirts, shorts, socks, shoes, gloves, etc.) to donate, please see Mall Cop.  http://f3nation.com/2013/04/09/call-for-gear-donations-2/

Strong workout today SC! Couln’t even tell you where improvising due to the # of pax we had vs your planned Q. Strong work!

I thought I would use Dredd’s Jedi mind trick on you with the Cumberland County Viaducts since TR got me on Twitter Sat. afternoon. Sure enough you rose to the occasion and and took us up to 13!
