Hydra equal opportunity workouts, long sleeves welcome

Hydra equal opportunity workouts, long sleeves welcome

21 pax stepped outside to temperatures in the mid-30’s and a welcome blast of fresh cool air. “It’s on” they all said excitedly. These brave pax then proceeded to converge on Olde Providence Elementary for a workout that did not discriminate on the basis of wardrobe or attire, like some other unnamed workouts on Tuesday morning not named Fast Twitch. Here, all men were welcome, all men recognized as being created equal, and all men were equally treated to a very large helping of pain handout. Long sleeves, short sleeves, toboggans, fingerless gloves, blue jeans, wet suits, breakdancing pants, tutus, short shorts, long pants, mittens, ear warmers…

Count off and Name-o-rama


We came, we saw, we did our thing. Great work by the pax un-phased by the cold. Some were reminded that it is the end of October and hats, long sleeves, and gloves may be needed on these gloomy mornings.

Anyone who saw M OLB post on the main site  I am sure you were moved. Anyone not checked that out yet, you should do so. It is a reminder of why we are F3, and how being a part of F3 is bigger than any one man. Many of us in Area 51 did not know OLB, Terry Pridgen, but we know if he was posting to workouts with F3, that he was a brother. Hops had some great comments and words you should check out too. 3rd F is strong today people!

The Hydra pax is no joke these days. Strong work and way to push it. Filmont mentioned we need some fresh pax to post so he can have someone to push. Sounds good to me. We have 500 homes in OP right behind us. And Filmont, you have been battling every week and doing awesome work man! Greyhound is getting stronger and mentioned it. He said the rest of the pax is getting stronger too. Agreed, sounds like Q’s are doing their jobs.

Last, keep coming back, keep pushing it, keep getting better. It happens one workout at a time gentlemen.
