Always 70 and Sunny

Looking at your watch won’t make it end any sooner…


18 unsuspecting gents descended upon Dogpile for light calisthenics and a round of Tai Chi.  This is what actually transpired…

COP:  SSH, DQ’s, and Arm Circles

Dora’s:  Merkins (100), Leg Toss (100)/Flutter Kick (100), LBC (300).  Partner runs up hill (the very steep one with fencing at the top.

Run to (Golden) Triangle…there’s a dirty joke there somewhere. Bear Crawl, 10 Merkins, Run, 20 Burpees, run (backwards) up hill, 30 WWII’s.

Wheelbarrow’s up carillon steps.  Perform Merkin at each step.  Each partner does one round.  Alternating leg tosses (10) once done.

Jacob’s Ladder: Starting at top of hill perform first of the following, advance to bottom perform second, advance to top on other side complete 3rd, then increment:  For example 1 merkin, 1 J-Squat, 1 Burpee, 2 Merkins, 2 J-Squats, 2 Burpees, etc.  All the way to 7

Amphitheater:  5 dips then 2 merkins.  Alternating steps all the way to the top

COP:  Freddie Mercuries, LBC’s, Rosalitas, Merkin ring of fire


Since YHC has logged almost daily posts this month he wanted to end the month right.  As such he chose one of his favorite AO’s, selected some of the most punishing exercises hatched by other sadists in the group, and took the opportunity to try something new.  As one who likes a workout that leaves folks a bit fatigued at the end, he hoped he succeeded in this regard.

Having not been privy to much mumble chatter, YHC will just list the fond observations and revelations he gleaned from today’s workout:

  • There was apparently a fair amount of watch monitoring today.  This could be chalked off to either boredom or a desire to see if there was still time to attend another F3 workout in RVA.  YHC will work harder next time to keep the PAX better occupied.
  • If you see something that resembles chocolate soft-serve, don’t touch it…it may have been skillfully placed there by Fudd
  • Speaking of Fudd, Lab Rat loaned him a new personal entertainment device. Still not certain what it’s exact use is, nor the legality of it’s implied use in all 50 states

Announcements:  Fudd will be sending more information regarding an upcoming fundraiser (golf tournament) to benefit suicide prevention.  The PAX appreciates his dedication to this cause.

  1. Great work today guys and thanks for putting up with my nonsense. I appreciate everyone coming out this morning and making what I like to think was a great start to the weekend.

  2. I thought excersize was supposed to make you feel good! I feel like somebody beat me with a rubber hose.

    Common sense told me I should have fart sacked this morning, I’m glad I didn’t listen (again). Thanks for the thumping, Saab.

    ET’S never disappoints, either.

  3. Thanks for the beat down Saab. Definitely was a great start to the weekend.

    Thanks for taking the lead today.

    Til next time


  4. If you picked up tips from the other sadists in the group, what does that make you? Appreciate the beatdown Saab. That and ETs was a great start to the weekend.
    That was an evil twist of a Jacob’s Ladder.

  5. Swirly (F3 Corporate) on

    Yeah buddy ! That was a solid freaken beat down Saabski – great Q bro..
    I have not stopped laughing since the ring of fire and ET’s as well as I keep hearing in my head – Nooooooo Bleeeedddeeerrr !!!! As Bleeder flew by both me and Rosie heading to the flag … Bleeder is back full throttle !
    Fuddski be careful with whatever ( toy/band) that lab rat gave you to use …. That thing looked like it could be illegal ..Flashdance hope your forehead is okay 🙂
    See y’all in the gloom.

  6. Great Q Saab. I have been laid up all day after that one. That Dora hill was brutal. Thank goodness Sippy knocked out most of the exercises for me. Thanks Sippy.

    Dogpile is always a great start to the weekend.

    See you fellas in the gloom.

  7. Great workout and Awesome ET, the 3 cups of coffee wore off at some point mid day; the rest of Saturday was at a slightly slower speed.

  8. BT (Big Tennessee) on

    Funny, the rest of the workout was such a beatdown that the Dora hill seems like it was 2 weeks ago. And partner wheelbarrow merkin step killers are no joke. Well done, Saab!

  9. Great Q, Saab. I could fully feel all of my quad work yesterday come back to me this morning on the Fun Run. Well done.

  10. My world famous Merkin is called the Plank Cervical Head Merkin, its a real ass kicker just try it out for yourself!!! Saab that was intense I never look at my watch but I started at 640 and looked about once every 2 minutes. Thanks for a great Q!!
