YHC loves to see the energy of the pax on a Sat dogpile morning… BT announced to the pax that YHC was full of piss and vinegar (IE: A typical Swirly Q) .. The rusty cage was a huge crowd favorite – lot’s of grunting and moaning – YHC and Sippy were giving it everything on those last reps – 1-3 ok – 3-5 rough.. I hear from the rest of the pax this is what they felt as well…. YHC gave the pax a small gift working our way up in the theatre after the dips ladder and heard gumbo and Wilson mumble chatter – Swirly gift – yeah we will be paying for this later…

The short side beast – was not short 🙂 the pole smoker Indian run was long and everyone just loves to finish up with a burpee shuffle and a ring of fire..

Great job today guys – It was a pleasure to lead such a fine group of men. Huge props to those in the pax that went out and ran the 5k in the heat F3 style           ( Merkins Squats every 5 min)  that’s F3 style – also thanks to everyone who came out to support such a worthy cause…

  1. I was very much the LIFO today yet highly impressed at what was accomplished by all this morning…Swirly Q’s never disappoint. 5K was a good time . Tclaps to Lab Rat for pushing along an F3 contingent and coming up with the F3 challenge. We really made a strong impression today.

    Well deserved rest Swirly. Saab out

  2. Great to see such a large PAX get after it this morning in the gloom. Glad to have OBT back in RVA and welcome Kingpin.

  3. Great Q as always Swirly. Jam packed and no rest. Appreciated the small gift though! Heck of a week, Swirly – you’re a machine.

    Sorry I had to miss the 5K. Way to represent fellas.

    Great to to meet Dreamliner and OBT today. Thanks for making the trip to be with us.

    Welcome Kingpin – breaking in on a Swirly Dogpile is no easy task but you were up for the challenge.

  4. BT (Big Tennessee) on

    That was a solid beat down. The 5k felt like a half marathon after that! BT is used to the predawn workouts and obviously needs to practice running in the heat of the day;)
