Moby Dick


“I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I’ll go to it laughing.” – Herman Melville

14 fearless warriors slayed the Thrusday FS and rose to the challenge of dominating this fine midweek morning.

Now, the rest of the story.

COP – 20 X SSH, IW, LBC, FM, X 10 Merkin

Fantastic 400s – Complete 4 loops around the dirt track.  At each of the corners perform an exercise.  Corner 1 merkin, corner 2 WWII sit-ups, corner 3 squats, corner 4 dips.  On lap one perform 10 of each exercise.  Lap 2 perform 20. Lap 3 perform 30.  Lap 4 perform 40.

Superman 11s – Partner up and complete 1 partner burpee at one end of the soccer field.  Run to the other end with partner and complete 10 Boo-ya merkins.  Back to the start for 2 partner burpees. Run again and complete 9 Boo-ya merkins.  Etc to completion.

Mosey back to the flag.  Numberama, namerama, Swirly lead us out.

Moleskin – Great job fellas.  TClaps go to Bleeder for not missing a beat upon his return, Swirly for SLAYING this workout and the the great Flashdance.  On the Fantastic 400s he crushed the workout.  Mublechatter was high this morning during the COP and subsided quickly once the work began.

The title of the post came from an old joke “How do you eat a whale?”.  The answer is one bite at a time.  Doing some of the higher volume exercises is intimidating at first, but bit by bit progress is made.

Also, YHC has only one other whale joke that would have been hard to come up with a title.  “How do you give a circumcision to a whale?” The answer is with four skin divers. Three summers at stand-up comdey camp with Gallagher and that’s the result.

YHC will put in the permanent file that 11s are great, but partner burpees at a long time.

News – The only podcast in the world that isn’t sponsored by Blue Apron or Freshbooks is out.  The F3 RVA chapter of the Order Of The Cincinatus has recorded, produced and shared with the world a podcast.  You can find it here – F3RVA Podcast

CSAUP January 21st – Please confirm your attendance on the pre-blast.

Share a Tent with Toga – Nothing to cause alarm.  Just a bunch of hot sweaty guys in the woods in short shorts in a tent.

Be super.

  1. Lockjaw was there as well. Great workout today! The partner burpees and booya merkins were the capstone to today’s workout.

  2. Solid beat down fellas. We’ll work on some pirate jokes for the next Circus Maximus. That should keep the nautical continuity going.

  3. Regret to have missed a great beat-down Hardywood. I was home cutting-up butter-boxes and I lost track of time.

  4. Swirly (F3 Corporate) on

    Solid Q Hardywood – liked the build up on that version of 4 corners.. Way to work today guys – much love to my partner Flipper – atta baby way to push it bro..
    See y’all in the gloom..

  5. Hardywood as always a solid beatdown. I encourage everyone to partner up with Swirly or Hardywood or someone like that because the last thing you want to do is let them down with your lame a$&. So you push yourself a little more…. Thanks for pushing me to be better today Swirly.

  6. Solid attack plan and execution this morning. It was another glorious early morning across RVA.

  7. Dude The Hoff and I are sucking wind today, the beat down continues as the hours pass. Great Q loved the new 4 corners!!!
