All The Sh*t Guys Hate

All The Sh*t Guys Hate

Lorax slacked out a post last night indicating that he had an FNG who he thought was on the hook to post. YHC got excited and internally rehearsed an invigorating and exhaustive disclaimer for the occasion. Wha wha wha…FNG did not post. Disclaimer scaled down to include the essentials. Thoroughly disappointed, the group took off for a warm up mosey.


Mosey around the seemingly endless pavement of the campus to a spot, in the grass, I repeat, in the (hated, wet) grass. Circle up.

Mosey to Entrance 2 Rock Pile and grab rock.

Indian Run with rocks to nowhere in particular. Actually ended up near where we started in the courtyard with the synthetic grass for some circuit work.

Start in South corner with rocks. 15 curl/15 overhead press/15 Thrusters. Bear crawl around the synthetic grassy knoll. 25 Donkey Kicks. Lunge Walk to the entrance doors. 25 Heels to Heaven. Back to start and Chair Plank with Rock. Repeato x 2 with 5 Hand-Release Burpees to start and finish. Plank-o-rama to regroup.

Grab rock and carry overhead to the rock pile. 25 Flutter Press IC/10 American Hammer with rock IC. Deposit rocks back into pile.

Civilian Merkin Set. All to 10: Regular/Offset Left/Offset Right/Wide Arm

AYG to Hotbox. 100 Step Up/100 Incline Merkin. 100 was aborted and replaced with 60 of each due to time.

AYG to the ball field rock pile next just off the main thoroughfare. Some more mary.

Mosey back to launch.



Wet backs and bellies during COP. Running with rocks. Lorax mentioned that we were partaking in all the stuff guys hate this morning. Yep.

When YHC started F3, the expectation was that you were going to get dirty. QIC guilty as the rest for getting away from that. Maybe we need a little more of that. Some additional tactile stimulation. Push out of the comfort zone of the pavement. Do some stuff that we “hate.” Feel more alive, more in tune with our surroundings. One with nature. Give the guys a reason to #mumblechatter and #refusenik. Hey, at least we stayed out of the Kitty Litter. Was tempted to make a stop there after Lorax stated that it was open for business. Next time, I promise.

Not much running this morning. Got a lot of reps in though. And a few burpees. Another crowd favorite.

Not a whole lot to note from the field, but a few things come to mind. Was a few degrees cooler this morning. The grass was wet and felt pretty nice, actually. Did not hear any Puddin flatulence, surprisingly. Ductwork rode in with Baracus. Not taking any chances after Monday I guess. Good to see Fredo, been a while. T-claps to Lorax for the takeout prayer.

2020 feels a bit like a shitshow type of year. Before getting the laptop out and typing this backblast, YHC got a cup of coffee and sat out on the back porch. Prayed and took some time to be thankful. Things may seem hard this year, but there is a lot to be thankful for. Very much appreciate the opportunity to lead you men this morning, and share a bit of fellowship after the workout.


-CHAMPAGNE, former 2F Q of A51, has the CENTURION Q on Friday. He has been holed up in his home gym for a while, so come on out and support (heckle) him in his Q return.

-STONE COLD, former 1F Q of A51, has the ROCK ZERO Q on Saturday.

The mumblechatter may have actually started when everyone realized Mermaid was taking the lead…amplified in the wet grass and carried over to the run with a “lifting” rock. Awesome Q. Glad I mixed it up this morning – thanks to Geraldo for dragging me out of SOB.

Wet grass and the occasional running rock is to be expected, I think the kitty litter after the wet grass might have started the revolt, good call. Glad to have some Anvil kotters out there this morning, glad Smokey made the long trek over from DV (RIP), Fredo to the north, Baracus back from IR. Good group this am.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
