Doubletime – Accidental Q

Backblast – July 8th, 2019

AO: Flagpole Hill – Normal route

PAX: Alright Alright, Sally, Sex Panther, Scrubs

QIC: Pow Pow

YHC accidentally signed up to Q both workouts this morning and did not know he had done so (technical difficulties with the website). Apologies for any confusion and for missing the preblast.

The accidental Q….so, if you post to a workout and are immediately informed by the PAX that you signed up to Q said workout the previous evening, first ask yourself “Am I at Flag Pole Hill? Is it Monday?” If the answer is “Yes”, then you’ll be fine, and if you showed up a minute late like YHC did this morning, then just say “Let’s go” and start running (or rucking). If the answer is “No”, then hopefully you can think up a bootcamp workout plan quickly, maybe do an extra long warmup to buy yourself some time to think.

(Fabricated) Mumblechatter: Sally and Scrubs probably talked about soccer.

No running, no fun??

Mosey to soft top
3x sets of the following:
Squat ups x5 (Squat pull ups)
Hip slapper merkins x5
Step ups x5

Five rounds of the following starting reps x1, 2, 3, 4, 5, flapjack exercises (burpees first on rd 2) reps x2, 4, 6, 8, 10.  Flapjack exercises each round increase reps x3, x4, x5 to finish!
-Crab cakes
-Iron crosses

Dr W’s x10
AL Prom Dates x24
Homer/Marge x12
Sweat Angels x12

To finish for a twist, YHC changed playlist and put on Thunderstruck by AC/DC where at each “thunder” PAX performed a Bobby Hurley to bring down the thunder.  Seal jacks were YHC’s choice to keep the heart rate up in between the rumbles.
YHC then changed music genres to round out the workout to “My Humps” by the Black-Eyed Peas and had the PAX perform a monkey humper at each mention of hump.  Fortunately for PAX the pain lasted less than 90 seconds, but YHC intends to add this to the set list in the future. 

YHC prayed us out.

When YHC asserted there would be no running in this workout, the PAX expressed doubt.  @RumpRoast even said his workouts have some amount of running in them.  The lack of running intrigued/scared the PAX, especially coming from YHC.  The three rounds of exercises that opened the workout was a changeup that helped warm up the PAX for the CLIMB.  YHC introduced squat ups and hipslapper merkins, the latter of which should not be completed using the swings unless you play at Expert level!  YHC suggests the hipslapper merkins become a regular in the rotation. 

Any mumble chatter during the CLIMB was slowly replaced by midwife groans and expressions of love for the iron crosses.  This turned out to be much more taxing than YHC had thought during his planning of the workout.  Par for the course!  Next time however, there will be a CLIMB down to go along with the CLIMB up (a good idea for a Saturday workout). 

Finishing with Thunderstruck and My Humps completely worked the PAX over, but it was the seal jacks over the BH’s that got the most complaints.  PAX didn’t get in enough monkey humpers to start howling with enjoyment.

Hot Box ROF

Backblast 0700 workout on Friday 7/5/2019

PAX: Oatmeal, Sex Panther
QIC: Rump Roast, Sally

AO: Burleson Park

SSH x 20
IST x 15

Mosey around the big loop at Burleson, stopping at each corner for PAX’s choice of squats, merkins, and Mary.

Mosey to the parking deck and down into the basement, where @Rump Roast had set up a reincarnation of @Icebox’s Christmas Ring of Fire workout.

Ring of Fire:
9 “stations” arranged in a circle, with the following corresponding exercises:

Squats with weight vest
Weighted jump rope
Shoulder pulses with baby weights
Ski Abs
Big Boy Sit-ups
Bobby Hurleys

PAX picked a station to start at and performed that exercise for 1 minute. After a 15-second break PAX rotated to their next station.

After the 9th round was completed, all PAX took a lap up to the ground floor of the parking deck and back down into the hot box.

We repeato’ed this whole routine once.

Done in the workout


This was the 0700 option workout for the day after the Fourth of July. #tclaps to Rump Roast because he also went to the first workout.

During the second round of ROF, PAX suggested each other’s starting point, which was fun.

Mosquitoes are shockingly very bad down in the hot box.

1. Top Golf was great. All had a good time. HBD to Sex Panther.
2. Come out to a QSource Group. It will become very worth your effort.
3. Fort Worth workout this Saturday 7/20

We were moving pretty fast today, not a ton of time for mumblechatter, or maybe I didn’t hear it since I was actually counting exercises today. We kept it on the court, avoided bugs, and burned up the shoulders pretty good.

Thanks to all who came out today to #makeglencoefunagain

Cotton Pickers x 9 IC 

YHC lead PAX on a mosey to Turtle Creek at which point we performed one exercise at each intersection up to Coffee Park.  Moseyed around the park and worked our way back down to the start.

We performed the following exercises ~x30 followed by a run, backward run, karaoke or, following the merkins, a bear crawl to the next intersection.
Gorilla Squats
Dancing Bears
Ski Abs
Freddie Mercury’s
Reverse Lunges
Monkey Humpers
AL Prom Dates
Moseyed back to Caruth given the time remaining to perform

YHC prayed us out.

Mumblechatter was random and at times muted based on exercises.  Bear crawl over the first block of Turtle Creek was a crowd pleaser and something about merkins today and Mustang tomorrow. We may have also offended an HP walker with our reps of AL Prom Dates, for which someone shouted apologies.  But I apologize for nothing in my work out!!  Workout was centered on Pepper’s milestone birthday (happy 30th) and YHC’s one-year anniversary hence the 30 reps of each exercise at 12 intersections.  Unfortunately, we ran out of time to complete a total of 365 reps.  YHC shared his thankfulness for F3 and the men in Dallas for making him a better man both physically and mentally.  Without the men of F3 YHC would still be a sad clown looking for a spark so I thank God every day for bringing me to this organization.  Also, YHC reminded the PAX to always be EH’ing other men to change them for the better.


  1. QSource tonight at CFA on Hillcrest @ 1800.  Topic: TARGETING
  2. Leadership dinner @ Torchy’s tomorrow night beginning at 1745 to ??? Come seek out leadership opportunities as we continue to expand in the Metroplex

‘Merica! 7/4/19

Up downs x13 IC

YHC had PAX partner up for the following:

243 Chinook squats

P1: Squats

P2: Bear crawl down stairs, star jump at bottom, crawl bear back up


76 Kaboom burpees

P1: Burpees

P2: Crab walk down stairs, star jump, walk crab back up


56 Dive Bombers

P1: DB’s

P2: Lunge down stairs, star jump, hop back up


P1: 13 No Surrenders

P2: 13 WWI sit ups


Pick up six on exercises and we all mosey to the bottom of stairs. PAX partnered up again and ran Ollie Norths across parking lot, flapjack and back to start. 


YHC had PAX hit their six for some celebratory Alphabet spelling the following:

  • Declaration of Independence
  • Founding Fathers (?) PAX may need to correct since YHC’s slept since then
  • ‘Merica

Several of the PAX and YHC then struck on an out-and-back 5K “fun” run back towards White Rock Lake.

YHC prayed us out and noted we need to remember our freedom that was given to us to all those that gave the ultimate sacrifice and to the Founders of the country.  Without this freedom we would not have the ability to do many of the things we take for granted on a daily basis.

YHC was very excited for the PAX to get started until he arrived and noted the gravel on the workout surface instead of concrete.  This was an overestimation of the City of Dallas given its propensity to spend millions on parks & rec or at least bike trails.  Anyway, the gravel spawned all sorts of love for YHC as many PAX were without gloves.  The Chinook squats were a hit (mostly from the feedback the following morning) as were the No Surrenders, which were quite a bit of torture on the gravel. The significance of the reps is as follows: 243 – years since the signing of the Declaration of Independence; 76 – signed in 1776; 56 – number of signers of the DofI; 13 original colonies

YHC noted that Ollie North’s need to be run over a much longer distance for penalty merkins to be effective.  PAX learned that spelling is not one of YHC’s strong suits during the Mary.

Following the COT, several of the PAX joined YHC for a 5K fun run down to the lake and back. A considerable amount of reflection was given to the decision to run about the 2k in at which point visions of cold beer kept us going.    The run was about group cohesion and not leaving the six. 

A special thanks to “DJ” Icebox for providing the festive and patriotic playlist and to Sex Panther for bringing the post-workout beverages!

1. Happy 4th of July!

First up:
Run to the back side of the tennis courts, adding 4 stops/exercises along the way:
5 merkins after bridge 1
5 pull-ups at the playground
5 merkins after bridge 2, and
20 rocking horses each leg upon reaching the tennis courts (rocking horses are a two-part exercise – 1. one-legged reverse lunge, touching both hands to ground, 2. bring that leg up and through, grabbing your knee to your chest)

Wheel of taps and merkins:
Everyone grab a section of curb.
Curb taps (both feet up and down is one rep) x 10, Irkins x 10
Rotate 90 degrees. Side curb taps x 10, curb split merkins x 10
Rotate another 90 degrees. Back curb taps x 10, derkins x 10
Rotate another 90 degrees. Side curb taps x 10, curb split merkins x 10

“Rest” exercise 10 good mornings IC

Starting at the rear of the tennis courts, run 3 laps around to the north side, through the playground, and back over the bridge.
During the 1st lap, stop and do 8 pull-ups and 8 step-ups (each leg)
During the 2nd lap, do 7 pull-ups and 7 step-ups each leg
During the 3rd lap, do 6 pull-ups and 6 step-ups each leg.

Get inside the tennis court.

Burpee the lines:
Essentially, 2 burpees and 2 turnarounds at each doubles and singles line across the courts. Down and back.
More details: starting at one court’s outermost doubles line (or “the baseline”), perform a burpee on the outermost side of the court. Then jump over that (doubles) line, turn around, and perform another burpee, keeping your hands on the inside side of the line. When you stand up and jump, jump back over the line. Then turn around and move on to the next line. Drop into a burpee and begin again.

“Rest” exercise: Good mornings x 10 OYO

Get up the lines:
Divide into 4 similarly-sized groups. Each group begins at the bottom-left most part of a half-court.
Perform 10 get-ups (lie completely flat on your back, and get up to standing), then run paint the lines for that court.
Move on to the next court.
#ExtraCredit modification – do not use your hands on the get-ups.

“Rest” exercise: 10 good mornings OYO, 10 groiners OYO

Partner Lazy IMPS:
50 reps of Imperial Storm Troopers, Merkins, Plank Jacks, and Squats
Partner 1 performs exercises
Partner 2 flutter kicks (4-count) to 20, then switch.
Only got to Merkins due to time.

Done in the IMPS

Completed. Welcome to Irwin (FNG, brought by Stingray) and Mayflower (FNG, brought by Rabbit while he is here to help with Rabbit’s move). Gave thanks for F3 and the impact it has had on many of our lives; asked for guidance and support, and to keep our thoughts on the right path.

No repeats of Hannigan’s Bridge today.
Curb taps are a great agility exercise.
So are burpees. Burpee the lines was a ton of fun, and seemed like a nice little (dare I say it?) competition.
Get-ups are becoming a PAX-wide favorite exercise.
No Longhair sightings this morning. Or in the last few weeks. Maybe he was intimidated by his run-in with AlrightAlright.

17 guys this morning, continuing an excellent attendance run this week. Keep coming out and getting better. And keep bringing out friends or family (well done, Rabbit) who could benefit from F3. Remember our mission is “To plant, grow, and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership.” #GiveItAway.

Speaking of leadership, we can use everyone’s passion and talents. Whatever you are passionate about and good at, there’s a way you can make a significant difference for the men of F3 Dallas, and for Dallas more broadly. A simple solution is to think about what you like about F3, and grow that.

1. Special July 4th beatdown tomorrow. 0700 at the flag at Flag Pole Hill. We’ll do a beatdown then a run afterward.
2. No QSource this week.
3. Safe travels to everyone travelling.
