Looked Good on Paper


Sixteen Hardwood Studs arrived at the plush fields of No Toll this morning to see what YHC had in store for an epic beatdown for the ages. Fields being a bit waterlogged caused an audible in the plans. To the best of memory, this is how it all went down.

5.30 struck, slow mosey to the far end of the parking lot.

Warmarama – SSH’s, DQ’s, Dead Man Hang, Freddie Mercury, Heals to Heaven, Arm Circles, Reverso. Warm, Lets get started

THANG 1: Hightower Workout

5 Exercises with 9 reps each. Burpee Style. Line up at the edge of the parking lot, sprint to the other end, perform said exercises & sprint back. Exercises include Burpees, Plank Jack Burpees, Hand Release Burpees (3 Hand Release Merkins for each Burpee), Jump Squat Burpees (3 Jump Squats for each Burpee), All in One Burpee (1 plank jack, 3 Hand Release Merkins, 3 Jump Squats for Each Burpee). AG for the 6

THANG 2: Inchwork 11’s

Mosey over to the Drive Aisle for 11’s with WWII’s and Elevated Merkins on the Curbs. In between, Inchworms (Bearcrawls with a Merkin middle) and reverse lunges.

THANG 3: New Market Sprints

Back to the parking lot to line up for 5 sets of all out sprints. Mosey back, New Market style

BTTF for Merkin Ring of Fire (9 Merkins each).

Numberama, Namarama, Announcements, YHC took us out

NMS: Hightower work out was performed in honor of fallen F3 brother and Myrtle Beach police officer Jacob (Hightower) Hancher. Killed in the line of duty last week.

5 and 9 were based on the Bible Verse Matthew 5:9 – Blessed are the peacekeepers, for they will be called children of God.

Mumble Chatter over the burpees until we got to the Inchworm 11’s which took the toll on the shoulders. As was said numerous times by Wilson, this routine looked good on paper but was brutal in execution.

NMMS: At 5.25, a single enthusiast (named Sparky by the PAX) sprinted by the awaiting PAX and was exercising on his own until he decided to join for the 2nd half of the workout. Hopefully will see him back in the future.


Beer Mile (non F3 event) is Saturday – see slack for details

Shoe Drive ongoing throughout the month. Flange is collecting all his own shoes to give to infants and kids.

Shirt Orders are in. Doublemint has them.

Thank you all for the honor of working with you.

  1. !!! B.R.U.T.A.L. !!! That was on the IPC level of pain. But happy to have completed it in honor of a fallen brother, and proud to have represented F3RVA well for a BAMF walk-on. Go hard or go home fellas.

  2. Painful, Last Call! But, for some strange reason, I was glad to be there! Appreciate the recognition of a fine man who accepted the challenges many would not. Be blessed we have those type of folks out there. Have a great week, gents!
