For the record – this system sucks. It can’t be that hard to fix or to go to something new, right? Start charging the new guys or something. Let’s turn this thing on it’s head. I had something all typed up and now it’s messin with me and homey aint got no time fo dat sh*t. I’m going back to OTF.

You can never try to tame the Gopher. Some would say you just need to bend over a take it like a man but I wouldn’t say that. You just gotta keep your head down, close your eyes and accept it.

Most got in 2.98 miles. Geraldo skipped El Stomache’ to make sure he got 3. Maybe the Smokester too. Er’body got their fair share of dips, supine PU, derkins, etc. Whatever.

Puddin shat his pants worse then I’ve ever heard, seen or smelled. That is it. Think skunk meets trash juice meets badussy.

Gelato + Burritos = No bueno

Pax: Xmas, Fault Line, McRib, HH, Puddin, Poptart, Hoppa, Manziel, Spack

7 unsuspecting souls, a site FNG and a man bleeding profusely from the weenus, began the morning with a nice base of lunch combo numero tres. What could have gone wrong actually did go wrong. But nobody will know about that.  

Was it Fun Friday? Unfortunately no, no it wasn’t. You owe thanks to the Oracle of the BB and also the now renowned, McRib of A51, for firing the Q up yesterday to turn this up a notch from a mileage perspective. I love me some Puddin but man I was hoping he would 86 Kevlar this week only bc I knew he wouldn’t be happy. And who doesn’t want to see a happy Puddin Pop?

I was greeted this morning to a wet and bloody McRib. All the Pyramid plowing with dudes 3 times a week has really taken a toll on his balance during his pre runs. Says he clipped a root and opened the scab on his weenus for the 3rd time in 18 weeks. Shortly thereafter comes in a high socked, hi vis blinking bumpkin from his pre run. No blood there. Evidently fellowship isn’t their pre run thing. At any rate, plans fell apart quickly today as my “Tour of Matthews” quickly seemed too dangerous due to the enormous popularity of the Burn BC race team and the lack of sidewalk visibility. El Valle was a must for the warm up though. Off we went.

BTW, I’m not sure if there are any pax of Mexican descent that can back me up but you know a good Mexican spot when…what? When you actually see Mexican customers. El Valle in Matthews. You are welcome. And oh BTW, when you see a young caucasian kid with broken Spanish working there in about 3 years – tell him you know Spackler. Free cheese dip and BOGOF Tecate’.

So we had to go back to campus because #1 – plans fell apart but more importantly #2 – we had a site FNG (Hopper) and thus, we’re required to show off the popularity of the Kevlar campus.

We did the whole partner up run the parking lot loop down the stairs thing. Lot’s of merkins, PopTarts “Dry Dogs” and a few others. It was excellent. Plan was forming.

We did the medians with exercises, up the hill and back a few times with different stuff. It too, was fantastic. Fault Line wouldn’t shut up about how great it was.

We ran around the church way too many times to get mileage whilst most pax focused on their abs in the quad (?). PopTart needed a break after winning a few laps and was caught doing kegels during a transition. That wasn’t even funny though. What is though is that this is where HH got to fill me in again on some of the Meathead commentary around Headers phone. “It seems that Header finally upgraded his Blackberry 47, to a limited edition Jerry Fallwell skinned Iphone 3 with the Teletubby case.   A bonus is that somehow his 4:30AM texts to his best Bro Chin Music are actually going to Chin’s M.  I can Only Imagine the awkwardness.  #MercyMe. It was good to have them both back, however.  When they didn’t show on Monday, I thought that they had gotten raptured on Sunday evening and we were all living in a Tim LaHaye book.   Turns out they were in a dispute over whose role was supposed to be played by Kirk Cameron, which ended up in some heated texts between Header and Chin’s M.  Nobody got any biscuits.” Utterly amazing. I hope this never happens to me bc I am certainly not Header and my cell phone does some real crazy stuff sometimes. Like “Not For Work” kinda stuff.

Lastly a little CMIYC, of which it seemed nobody wanted to participate. But, again, blame the Oracle of the BB and McRib of A51. We needed the mileage

Speaking of Tiger Rag, master of puppets, he’s back in full force.  I think he is the McRib of A51.  You don’t know how long the limited time offering will last, but it sure is good when it’s here.  Let’s hope it sticks around for a while.  I’m stocking up.  I’m listenin…..

It’s Friday. Y’all know what that means? Yahtzee. Everyone should chime in with what they think Semi Gloss will be doing tonight around 10pm. I will be first in the comments.

Is it wet?

“Pssst. Hey babe is it raining”?

“What? Leave me alone”

“No seriously is it raining”?

“It sounds like it”

“Whew Ok good. I love the sound of the rai….”

“Don’t even think about it”

“Damn it”

So up I was, ready to Q another glorious, moist, morning at Anvil.


Mosey to where most of the puddles were for a little LSS x 15, Mnt Climbers x 15 and IW x 15.

Mosey to one of the overhangs for Alabama Slamma – merkins OYO 20,19,18,17 and so forth.

Mosey to hot box – 10 derkins, 20 dips, 30 step ups – x 10 minutes

Mosey to rock pile – 10 tricep ext, 20 push press, 30 curls then run down to end of parking lot and back – x 2


Look, I’m like the retired 80 yr old widower who is set in his ways when it comes to F3. Wake up at 5, I drink my Colonix, go back and forth between my recliner and toilet from 5:30-8, read the sports page, smoke a cigar, pour a bloody, ok maybe two – all before noon. Every. Single. Day. And, most importantly, nobody tells me what to do. If I don’t feel like Q’ing bc it’s raining, then I won’t. That is why we have site Q’s – to make up for our irresponsibility. That said, I am a Gentleman who decided I had nothing better to do (thanks to the M) so I might as well sweat out some of the Catawba CLT from the night prior.

Wish everyone could have witnessed the fight that ensued between Clover (Dook) and Lorax (Tarhole) before the workout even started. It all erupted over who could brag more about their respective 5* basketball recruits. Next thing we knew the khaki’s came off, White Claws were thrown and both just started slapping each other with open hands. One would slap and chase, then the other would slap and chase etc. Reminded me of a scene out of Flashdance. Lambeau attempted to stop them but then Mantooth (Tarhole) came out of nowhere with a flying monkey humper knocking Lambeau to the ground. Jet Fuel had finally had enough. He got out of his Toyota minivan and put an All SEC pancake block on Mantooth while Way and I finally separated the cat fight by offering each a chardonnay just to calm the F down. There was no blood, just bruised egos and lots of tears. It was at this point, YHC decided to finally give a disclaimer. Remember guys, an effective disclaimer is of utmost importance especially for these kind of situations.

As for the workout – she’ll come a knockin later today. Tell a friend. I don’t F around with bear crawls, burpees, crab walking in sand pits etc. That’s just dumb. And yes, while hard, there are other things that can get one hard too. The Bama Slamma isn’t easy and is sure to get you hard. An oldie but goodie and sure to force you to flex your tiaats multiple times throughout the day. One of the pax, aka Lorax, tried to talk some sh*t at the beginning but soon quieted to a soft whimper. Flex them Lorax. See? You know you flexed.

Lot’s of good chatter in the hot box. Topics ranging from Bobby Petrino, motorcycles, prostitutes, tax deadlines, strangled cats and so forth. Not necessarily in that order. Ah, the fellowship is alive indeed!

Always enjoy “leading” as they say. Appreciate the opportunity Lorax. That’s it. White ball is a calling.

Chesticles Roasting on Spackler’s Knoll

Pax – Spackler, Dollywood, Header, Chin Music, Stone Cold Steve Austin

You remember the feeling when you showed up to school and forgot you had a test? Or when you got to about 10am the day of your wife’s bday and realized you forgot to wish her one? Or even better, that one time (or in Gloss’ case multiple times) when you felt you could easily let out that soothing fart and whelp….there goes the shart? Yeah me neither. However, I do know (now) how it feels to show up to Q and upon seeing (relatively few) pax and immediately realizing I was going to be the slowest and most out of shape gentleman of the crew. Perfect. Great feeling. Fantastic.

Gave zero disclaimer. Take that. These guys didn’t need it. They are all gentlemen. Oh and did I mention zero warm up as well? Yep.

Mosey towards Spackler’s Knoll with 15 merkins at each speedbump (5). At the bottom of Spackler’s Knoll it was decided we would do the half pipe x 3. 20 merkins at top of Knoll and 20 squats at other end. 5 burpees or 10 merkins at bottom each time. It was GLORIOUS.

Head back to AO with multiple stops for El Stomache’ stuff and not to forget the 15 merkins again at each speedbump (5).

We finished with some mas Stomache’.

Total mileage – 3.55 miles Total Merkins – ~210


Solid Augtober out there this morning. Look I’m no genius (shocker) but I got the street skills to know that upon arrival it was going to be a moist one.

Pulled up to some of the usual DV suspects – hoped for a few more so I could strategically hide throughout the work out but to no avail. Those missing probably went to that AARP workout this morning and are still itching the sand from their anuses. I said it.

It was also the kind of crew where I knew my normal potty mouth was going to be really frowned upon sooooooooooo the thought was let’s just run a lot so I get so tired I can’t talk. Pretty much worked.

All the others were chatty Cathy’s. Header and Chin were talking about dinner and sponge cakes, probably because it is Chin’s 42 Bday today. I’m more of an after dinner cocktail and #clickclick kind of lad over dessert but nobody asked me (and I couldn’t talk anyway). DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT think you can just walk up to Dollywood at a wedding and think he wants to talk to you just because your M’s are friends. Shocked to find that out but evidently he is some kind of reception Ninja. Be warned. Stone Cold was lamenting about soon to be paying college tuition not to mention the costs of homecoming, yearbooks, dresses, etc. Nothing of which I had any advice for….sorry pal – I see a 70’s jeep for sale in the near future.

Thanks to me, I took us out in prayer for the first time in years. And I do apologize for not asking God to spare us the bad luck today when that black cat jumped out of the woods like a damn black Panther and crossed the road in front of us at the end of the workout. Hail Mary full of Grace…………


Happy Bday to Chin Music.


If you were there, you know. Who’s in charge of this sh*tshow anyway for writing backblasts? Links never work.

On this date in history:

26 Sept, 1962 – U.S.A. “Beverly Hillbillies”September 26th, 1962 : TV comedy series “Beverly Hillbillies” about a hillbilly family transplanted to Beverly Hills, California after finding oil on their land premieres on CBS, it proved a big hit with TV watchers and became the top ranking network show on television for two seasons.

Also on this date in history, Olivia Newton-John was born. #Yahtzee

So there’s that.

Anywho, 18 showed for this week’s edition of Hydra and we lost the damn Whistleblower in the woods. Sorry Nancy.

YHC tried to give a disclaimer but got cut short by Gummy and Gloss. You are allowed to sue them if you got hurt today.

The Thing

We ran down to that hill we always do stuff on. You know the one. We did IW’s, merkins and MC’s.

Sevens on the hill – merkins and squats

EXTRA LONG mosey through the woods to OP for The Gopher.

Partner 1 runs around baseball field to jungle gym for 10 pull ups, 20 dips and 30 merkins

Partner 2 runs to football field for a hot lap

Meet back for 10 burpees combined and flap jack until time is called (3 full rounds)

We completed the Happy Ending on the small field for some stomache’ exercises and All You Are Willing To Gives x 4.

3.25 miles with lots of extra curricular sh*t for those that did them. You’re welcome.


It’s pretty clear the Democrats need to drop this whole impeachment deal and focus on Making Headlamps Great Again. You vets remember the days when you would wear one to every workout? They were needed today. Badly. The woods got a little treacherous. Eventually everybody made it safe but not after hearing what sounded like the squealing of a pig and then seeing Gloss and Motorboat exit the woods last. You’ll have to subscribe to their new podcast, The Fromunda Diaries, to hear what went down. It won’t be office friendly.

Lots of chatter today but not as much as yesterday at the OG Death Valley reunion. That would have been tough to match.

Gummy and Marge delighted in their discussion about Espana and the glorious rioja’s, sangria’s and bocadillos during the 7’s. I can relate due to my time spent abroad but decided not to join the conversation for as I wasn’t hearing anything about smoking hash, Ibiza and mopeds.

Semi Glossed up the porta in Gloss fashion and said afterwards that it was “phenomenal”. How can any experience in a construction porta be considered as such? DM Gloss for answers.

Queen, Sprockets wants to TP your house. He told me so on the jog down to warm up. If you need some retaliation tactics, let me know.

Look Runstopper, I get the whole climate thing. But praise the higher temps for just a little bit longer so none of us have to see you in your man skins. Aleluia

Let’s see here. Oh yeah, Gummy has officially been voted into the Trifusenik club. He’s currently 2nd string to Puddin but he’s made the team nonetheless. Er’body give him a pat on the back next time you see him. We are constantly keeping eye so who knows, maybe you are lucky enough to be chosen next?

I’m sure there was more chatter so chime away if you feel led. I’ve got to go to “work” now.


Check the BB from Death Valley. –


15 (you know who you are) escaped the comfort of their cool and crisp homes for the warm, moist blanket known as Hawksnest. It was a special morning.

Disclaimed to the best of my abilities.

Jogged down to the track for a quick warm up on IW’s, LSQ’s and MC’s.

The Thing

Parter up starting on the track on about the 50 yard line. Partner 1 runs one way around track and up the path to the field house. Partner 2 the opposite. Combined 50 merkins at the top. Meet back at bottom for combined 50 dips. 3 sets of this.

Mosey to soccer fields for 4 corners of stomache’ work x 2. ‘We’ did flutters, dolly, rosalitas, backscratchers and H2H. If you did them right you did 90 of each except for H2H where you did 120 reps.

Mosey down hill towards parking lot stopping short for 7’s. Merkins and Jump Squats

Finished with a couple extra credit Mary reps while we didn’t wait on FT guys.

Close to 3 miles by my watch.


What a beautiful morning. 76 degrees. High humidity. Glorious. Expected a cast of characters and they didn’t disappoint. What started out very cordial pretty much stayed that way throughout minus a few outbursts. Gloss began with apologizing for coming in hot as he wasn’t satisfied with his poop this morning. Too much cheese yesterday. Chelms graced us with his presence so obviously I had to ask him his thoughts on Epstein. Before he could say a word, Gloss makes the outstanding observation that if there is one thing that Republicans and Democrats can finally agree on it’s that Epstein didn’t commit suicide and that the FBI will not get to the bottom of it, ever.

conspiracy - Hair - The last person to visit Epstein in jail
Memes don’t lie

Enough of the politikin.

#SpackledPuddinGloss was in full effect today with one of the triplets at the helm. None of the 3 disappointed with their lackluster performance. What wasn’t lackluster was Beto’s (aka Deep Dish’s), adherence to commands. He lives by the saying, “if ya ain’t trying yer cheating” which goes against everything in the Trifusenik Guide to Life Success – pg 2 halfway down.

Good to see Motorboat continue to fall for Gloss’s tricks as he carpooled yet again to HN. You should have seen those sweaty messes squeeze into Gloss tiny Acura after the workout. Can only imagine the fromunda that radiates from the interior. And if Motorboat doesn’t start shaking his head and making the motorboat noise soon during name-o-rama I’m calling for a name change.

Jet Fuel is back from the Japanese Youth World Cup of Baseball held in Houma, Louisiana of all places. His son and their team, The South Park Indians, won the whole damn thing. JF’s son was named MVP.

Pop Tart shared his disappointment that today wasn’t easy. No, no it wasn’t. But you could have made it so. The group isn’t closed – #SpackledPuddinGlossPopTart.

Whoever the hero from FT was that bum rushed the circle during announcements. Kudos to you kid. Way to finish strong.


Check Slack or the The Twitter for Labor Day convergence stuff. I just heard it was in Egypt and toned it out.

Sat 8am – Chelms and Barracuda will be on WFNZ radio talking about how to “Put Tools in Schools”. Or something to that matter.

Aug 30th – Sandbox – Concord Prom event – need volunteers to push kids in wheelchairs down the red carpet. Check Slack

Gambling on Sequels

8 participated in my annual Meathead Q

We warmed up. 10 swings, 10 merkins, 9 swings, 9 tea bags, 8 swings, 8 merkins, 7 swings, 7 tea bags – you get the drift.

The Thing

Split into 4 groups with Group 4 being the timer by walking their KB how they see fit around the parking lot while the other groups do their sh*t.

Group 1 – 20 shoulder press: 25 swings: 15 lawnmower; Burn out set of curls

Group 2 – 20 american hammer: 20 chest press: 20 crunches w KB: Burn out set of cleans

Group 3 – 10 squat press: 10 snatches each arm: 15 tricep ext: Burn out set of something

That’s all we did round and round for 45 min.

The Skinny Margarita nobody likes

“Meathead?” Really?” – This was the text I get from Horsehead on Wednesday. Yeah man, I’m a wanted man. Things. Many Things. He proceeds to not show bc of a white knuckler the Knights had against the Trash Pandas on Wed night. Pretty impressive actually. And all this time I thought he didn’t gamble.

Gotta give credit where credit is due to Orange Whip. As I said, I’m no regular at Meathead. I need running to keep my beer gut and man titties in check. So when tapped I proceeded to take a look back to 2017 where something like performed today was put on by Orange Whip. However, no doubt my music was better. Get better soon OW!

Speaking of music – talk about pressure. Will TR show up or won’t he? Eminem? Too explicit for TR. John Denver? Well he sucks. Why not go with the ole trusty 80’s rock. Done. Felt even more confident in my choices whilst putting together the playlist the other night. Playing each song out loud my oldest (11) son screams, “This music blows Dad!” Watch your mouth son.

Don’t get to see Soul Glow much anymore except when I come to Meathead. He shows up late Tripping Billies and looks like he ate, drank and was quite merry. He admitted he almost backed out and left when he thought we were doing burpees during the warm up. Dude. It’s me.

Stone Cold was Stone Cold. He dug the music.

Queue the Top Gun theme song – Schmedium brings up the sequel that’s coming out. For the record, I know I will waste my money to see it and be completely disappointed. Schmed’s evidently still has a huge crush on Kelly McGillis. Do me a favor and search “Kelly McGillis now” today. You are welcome. Let’s find you another crush Schmeds.

Was good getting to know Swift during our long walks around the parking lot today. He made sure I knew he didn’t like Taylor Swift within the 1st two minutes of chatter. I was dying to make fun of his KB until I found out he had a back issue from playing ball at Bill & Mary. He very well could have been there while I was betting on their opponents to cover each game. That was a good year.

Good to see Wild Turkey. Brought 2 bells and used the lighter one. #winning. He hates Top Gun but is a big fan of Creed 2. Don’t know Victoria or Box Cutter all that well. Let’s be honest they are probably better off.

Was a pleasure. See you boys in about 8 months.


Pray for the continued healing of Strange Brew

“Kid” Ritchie

It was 9pm on a Tuesday and this middle aged, close head shaven Croat was still a bit tired following Puddin’s beatdown earlier at HawksNest. Told Puddin I seriously almost fainted I was so dizzy during name-o-rama. Then again, the same thing happened this morning so who knows? I blame it on the lack of Pamplemousse. I digress. So at 9pm, the plan was to take the crew over to Five Knolls and crush any small talk, (of which there was little today to speak of anyway) however I got a text from Voodoo wanting to join armies over at Davie. Sold. Nighty night.

Arrive at the AO to the normal meet n greet, circle jerk kind of thing and Tag-a-long says he swore he saw Mermaid stop and pick up a little boy at the entrance to Calvary. Here goes the weird looks and “what exactly do you mean by little boy” talk. Couldn’t be Mermaid. Please God no. I mean he probably gives that warning message all the time at Providence High. But after asking for the secret word (that Mermaid somehow got right) the kid willingly hops into Mermaids car and he drops him to his vehicle with the blown out tire on the other side of the parking lot. Sound sketchy? Stay with me.

So Mermaid get’s over to the rest of us at 5:28 and shares a shorter version of above and says Who is leading today? Who is leading today?! Damn it Mermaid. So I’m like yeah I am so I guess we need to go over there and help? Shot a quick text to Voodoo telling him change of plans most likely. Short, flustered disclaimer given which BTW covered nothing about liability for F3, myself, Calvary nor the site Q’s. My apologies gentlemen. We had more important things to get to though. As in being heroes or maybe aiding and abetting? Who knows.

We head over and find this 4 foot tall 16 yr old (no way he was over 12) next to his blown out (and I mean demolished) front right tire. Not to mention is was like a damn yard sale out there. He had taken all the crap he owned out of his trunk and or backseat and it was scattered about all over the parking lot. Furthermore, dude was trying to take the lug nuts off with pliers. Yeah I said it, pliers. Now to be fair, he couldn’t find the tire iron as it was probably still on Mermaids floorboard. So I’m thinking to myself that I hope everybody has some time to get in a work out later in the day bc we are gonna have to help this poor kid out. Not to say he was poor, he was tiny and absolutely clueless though. And he was definitely not 16. Junior at Butler my a**. While my mind was elsewhere I hear Mermaid interrogating the kid about why his parents weren’t answering their phones, where was his license and registration, why he looked like a young “Kid” from Kid n Play or maybe even a real young Lionel Ritchie….. you know all the imperative questions. Not getting any real answers, Mermaid says alright well you hang in there Kid while we get in our workout and we will be back around 6:15. Shocked, but totally 100% agreeable, I led the PAX through a quick warm up and then we darted over to Davie to join Voodoo, albeit a couple minutes late.

The Thang

The workout happened and if you want to read about it then head over to Voodoo’s Death Valley backblast. Too much stuff to share.


So let’s get back to the story. Post workout instructions given to those willing to help to meet over at Kid Ritchie’s car. I’ll be honest as I was driving over I was thinking quite a few things. #1 – Kid was legit, he’s woken his parents and they are over there helping him. #2 – Kid was legit and he has security from Calvary helping him. #3 – Kid was legit and he has left his car to go find help. #4 – Kid was a felon that stole the car, wrecked it and has now ditched the car. But the real answer is #5 – he’s put away his yard sale and is just sitting in his car. Interesting. So I pull up in my Black Tahoe all slowly, you know, I wanted the kid to think I was a cop and put a little fear of God in the boy. Matter of fact, I think I read that in my owners manual of things to do in sketchy situations.

Seriously though, and no thanks to security at Calvary, as evidently they did show up to tell the kid he was on his own. #t-claps Snowflake, Mermaid, Runstopper, Tag-a-long, Lorax and maybe Brushback (?) show up to help and Runstopper immediately steps into action digging through yard sale items trying to find anything to help. Finally there are 3 jacks on the ground and other items needed to accomplish this normally easy task. Easy? Ha. You should have seen Lorax trying to get the lug nuts off. Pretty sure that was as hard, if not harder, than any of the workout. Admirably, because YHC was literally watching the entire time, Runstopper took over the fatherly duty of making sure Kid Ritchie was watching every step so he could do this himself next time. Yeah next time, as in 15 minutes later, when he ignores the warning that a spare shouldn’t go over 45mph. Mermaid, once again as a successful counselor, interrogated Kid over his schedule of classes for 2019 and highly suggests he sign up for the Automotive Class elective, you know where you can learn about all this sh*t. I was thinking more like the Intro to Life Skills 101 class where Chapter 2 explains that nothing good ever happens after 1am immediately followed by Chapter 3 which clearly explains how you should never ask a stranger for a ride. But what do I know. Kid explains they don’t offer that at Butler. All they have are Sowing and Home Economics. To which I heard Runstopper say, “Well you need those too and you can certainly find some women in those classes”.

Last but not least, the kids parents never ‘answered’ their phone as he said his Dad must be really tired. Oh, and nothing like hearing last minute that he had a brother or cousin with him that went walking towards Providence Road (as Kid pointed towards Carmel) to look for help and he wasn’t answering his phone for the last hour either. Something stinks. Tune into WSOC later today for an update.

No announcements

I thought we were in the trust tree, in the nest, are we not?

10 men, of only a few of which I can remember, came out to run around in circles at The Nest. It was basically 9 dudes with shirts on and one without. It was lovely.

The Thang

Mosey to Lot P for a warm up lap and some exercises that included merkins, parker peter, dry dogs, IW’s and LSS’s. Officially the longest warm up I’ve Q’d.

Plan was to take it from there off campus for a triple nickel on Grayson Heights Drive but I was already tired so we stopped and did laps around a parking lot with exercises amongst partners. Lot’s of laps – prob 4-5 per partner. 100 merkin/200 dips/300 squats. Ended that portion with some stomach. It was lovely.

Mosey to the rocks. Change up partners. Partner runs up hill to track for 10 MTJ’s. Other does 10 curls/20 triceps/30 push press. Did this 3 times. Ended with one round of burpees and jump squats. This was truly lovely.

Back to lot for lot’s of oblique.


Not sure why but I prefer ‘The Nest’ over ‘Hawksnest’ and I always think of the Will Ferrell scene in Old School with his wife at the therapist. Check my Twitt from earlier today. Hilarious.

Large portion of the workout we discussed Lawrence Phillips beating his girlfriend in college, Brook Berringer dying in a plane crash, getting our conceal carry permits and Gloss ‘knowing’ my body. Yep, 2nd F in it’s finest. A true picture of the invigoration of male community leadership.


Beer Mile and Beer run – Check the slack channels

Some relay race Frasier is pushing on everyone in July. All I heard was mileage and hotel rooms – both of which I know well. Yahtzee.

The Pumper

16 of F3’s finest, minus Bananas, TR and Radar, posted for their weekly sh*t show known as Kevlar, or for today’s purposes, The Pumper.

The Thang

Disclaimer adequately pronounced

Ran around worst dirt track in Meck County x 2. Circled up for warm up. The norm.

Mosey to Aggasi Court hot box. Partner up. One runs the other does work x 4. Dips/DMerkins/Step Ups/Burpees

We each grabbed schmedium rocks and went down to hill for 11’s and then 7’s. 11’s consisted of The Pumper/Merkins. 7’s – push press and Dry Dogs.

Put rocks back and then Indian ran around school. Finished with partner ab work and sprints.

Bareback Moleskin

I know everyone is on the edge of their seat. WTF is The Pumper? Calm your mammaries. Before I go there, I need to tell a quick happening that occured a couple weeks ago. Goes right along with The Pumper theme. So Puddin and I have a mutual friend that throws a huge chili cook-off each year at his house (Think Animal House but with attorneys, insurance salesmen, Vets, hippies, a band and plenty of MILF’s). Quite the scene. So my neighbor and I decide to show up fashionably late and one of the first people we see is Puddin. Well I take that back, first people we saw were doing something sketchy on the front stoop – neither here nor there. Ok so I see Puddin and we are pumped up, doing chest bumps and the sort. We head inside to meet some other folks when an attractive women walks up and Puddin says, “Hey Spack, meet my wife”. To which I politely let her know how much I am a fan of Puddin, giving high fives etc. Next (and maybe last) words out of her mouth were, “He’s a great lay too”. 100% the truth. Jaw dropped. Drop of the mic. DAMN RIGHT PUDDIN. Need I say more??

The Pumper – whilst holding an object between your two hands and out in front of you, positioned roughly waist high (today being a rock), squat down to 90 degrees and thrust yourself back to upright. Form is important but your thrusting technique is of ultra importance. Great workout that many of us certainly don’t get enough of – minus Puddin.

Really there was almost too much commentary today for me to remember. Which was why I politely asked HH to write the backblast but he refused #selfish. Then again, he wouldn’t have known about the aforementioned party. Epic. So go ahead and chime away in the comments. As stated yesterday in my BB, I’m an F3 veteran. Different requirements for us. Go find that in the lexicon qu**Rs. This guy is done for the week. 2 Q’s in 24 hours with completed BB’s – check.

See you guys in a month.
