I titled this one Beast Mode for a reason.  Quite simply put…I’ve been so impressed with all the workouts F3 has to offer!  Over the past 1.5 years we’ve learned there is a niche for everyone’s taste buds, so men can go to sites that offer up the kind of workout they are looking for.  To date however (other than Day Zero at time…when Radar and Haze bring out those sandbags or Diamond Head when Byron and Nibbler bring the gear) have I left an hour long workout completely destroyed.  This is the staple that we’ve created at Olympus over the past 10 months.  Beast Mode is on another Strongman/Cardo/Strength level and the men that posted today absolutely Crushed it out there.  As Q, it is incredibly rewarding to see guys give it their all…that today was a representation of that Herculean effort on everyone’s part.

However, one thing to point out, Hacker may have the strongest groin in the world as being O2 deprived, he strapped on the sled straps wrong and pulled the weighted sled 80 yards with his pelvic region…unreal…lol.

Again, thank you for posting with us and it is an honor to lead such a strong group of me.

Respectfully, The Hoff

Thanks for leading on Saturday, Hoff. The pain stations with all the gear made it a unique workout and a good alternative to the non-stop BRR training that seems to be so popular these days (only one more week).

Thanks to all the Pax for the warm welcome of my buddy from out of town (FNG Beancounter). When I told him we would hit a workout Saturday morning, I don’t think he imagined anything like this.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
