Intro: YHC has only officially Qed at Accelerator and wanted to try and branch out. YHC grabbed coupons from the Doty Park cage to bring to the Jones (permission was granted by Minivan as Faultline was today). There were 5 HCs for the Jones. However, as 7:00 came, YHC realized the PAX (14) outnumbered the Blocks (13)at the Jones, adjustments had to be made. YHC forgot his weinkie at home, so most of the exercises listed are done from memory in regards to order excuted.
Weather: A bit humid, but not too bad until the gnats came.
FNGs: 4 (Papito, Padre, Hot Rod, and Danger Zone)
- SSH x15 IC
- TTT x10 IC
- Imperial Walkers x10 IC
THANG: As YHC did on Thursday at Accelerator to star, the Merry-Go-Round of coupons occurred. The coupons used were 1 tire, 2 logs, 2 buckets with a sandbag in each one, and my Ruck with 50#. PAX would receive a coupon, run along the track to the next man in line and give him the coupon. Last man would drop off the coupon where they started. For the last coupon, after handing it off, the PAX would follow the coupon holders to the end. Good reviews came from this. Snowden himself even complimented it. This was done 2 more times after the conclusion of each round.
Round 1: PAX grabbed blocks, where we realized we were 1 short. YHC used the tire for this routine. Everyone lined up their blocks, and every other block was laid down. The idea was, split into two teams 15 yards apart from the blocks. One team would flip the blocks up, the other down. The PAX would do 5 burpees before being able to run over and flip a block and run back to do more burpees. We would do this for 6 minutes. Losing side would do 10 more Burpees. YHC thought he explained well enough, but there was confusion as the routine occurred. Some PAX though they had to flip their block only up or down, and some forgot which one they had to do. That is on me for not explaining well enough/making sure the PAX understood. No excuse.
After that, PAX gathered around the flag with their blocks, YHC used his Ruck. (Still 50# as YHC forgot that the weight was in there till later on in the round😅) YHC would call a good many exercises today on Q while controlling both the up and the down. Made the PAX work a little harder when I held my position.
- Iron Crosses x20 On Q U&D
- Squats w/block x15 On Q U&D
- Weighted Bobby Hurley x10 On Q
- High Pulls x10 On Q U&D
- American Hammers w/block x10 IC
Round 2: YHC remembered to make his Ruck 30# this time.
- Contra Burpee x5
- Hold OHP x2 PAX would count around twice before being able to lower block. Rested a quick moment, and performed again. Some PAX decided to hold off on saying their number to add a little more suck to it.
- Curls For The Girls x15 On Q U&D
- Tricep Extension x10 On Q U&D
Bear Crawl Bear Square/Hold OHP-For this he idea was that half the PAX would do 2 Bear Crawl Bear Squares all at the same time, while the other half held the Block over head. Then swap out, and continuous this till YHC haunted them. However, YHC again failed to explain it well. Some PAX did 1, there were questions of who is swapping out with who. After a couple attempts YHC stopped the exercise. YHC does not know why, but he was having an off day for explaining things.
I again take full responsibility as the Q for not explaining properly. I hold myself to a high standard, and today I did not meet that standard. I do apologize for it, and will get it right the next time.
- 100s IC
- Flutterkicks w/block x 41 IC
- Damn It’s x10 On Q
- Bodybuilders (Adjustment style) x7 IC
This was YHCs final blunder. YHC didn’t know what he wanted to do for MARY so he started with 100s, after, he went to flutterkicks, but completely spaced on grabbing his Ruck. YHC panicked due to time and making sure the PAX got all they could get in. YHC grabbed a bag by the flag to perform exercises. Demos were performed with a block from a PAX, but YHC continued to use the bag to do the exercises. YHC knew this was wrong to do, but could not tell you why he didn’t stop, run over and get his Ruck as weight. I have apologized to the PAX for it, and I am apologizing to you who read this. Accountability is a word we use often in F3. I know I made mistakes today, and I will own up to each one. These blunders have not occurred at Accelerator since YHC became a consistent Q there. It has been on YHC’s mind the entire day and needed to be said. Please forgive these blunders of mine, they will not happen again.

Devo: Houdini & Cheetah
Houdini shared Matthew 14: 13-21, a story of how Jesus saved 5 thousand by feeding them with just 2 fish and 5 loaves, quelling the emptiness they had. Houdini went on to say that we all go through these “empty” times. Where we feel like we are just an empty shell just going through the motions. He said if you allow The Father into your life He will not only satisfy, but provide a super abundance of life and making into you.
Cheetah-Proverbs 16:9. “We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” YHC told the PAX of the GRT at the Bragg Heavy who passed. Encouraged them to make sure they have their plans ready in the event something unexpected happened.
MOLESKIN: Outside of YHCs mistakes, overall it was a good beat down and PAX got what they came out for. PAX took a while naming the FNGs as the gnats were coming in droves and made things harder to come up with names. Papito, is a new father and Houdini chimmed in for Papito which PAX liked. Hot Rod, is an electrician and has always gone by that nickname. Even at the start of the workout, YHC thought he was a member already especially since he went by Hot Rod. Name was kept that way since PAX couldn’t think of a name that didn’t involve electricians as we have too many. Padre was named because he is a Spanish Minister who has helped open several Churches. Danger Zone was nearly called Condi, but Snowden held the name for another day. Danger Zone deals with construction projects, and trying to spell the name of the Asian restaurant he said would be a nightmare to some PAX to spell. YHC couldn’t spell it right if tried.
