Date: January 12, 2022
Weather: 26 degrees = COLD (even in the Bellemeade St. Parking Deck)
PAX: Drysdale, Radiator (co-War Daddy), Secretary, Huffy (c0-War Daddy), Newhart, Bobby Knight, Mare (War Baby), A6, Bird’s Nest, Graffiti, Poehler, Akron, Bourbon (F3 Toledo), Etch-a-Sketch, Wojo (QIC)
When you haven’t Qd a particular workout or it’s been a long time since your last Q, you don’t want to disappoint. When you get word that you may have a guest who posts from another region, you have to be double ready! YHC approached my time Q at Local Honey yesterday with that in mind. And with Bourbon from F3 Toledo part of the PAX today, I hope I delivered!
Welcome & F3 mission statement were delivered with a special note to push yourself today. As this particular workout begins at 5:32 instead of the usual 5:30, there was no time for anymore chit chat. Time to get to work!

THANG 2 – Team 4 Corners
The PAX divided into 4 teams for a special four corners workout. Instructions were to stay together as a team to both count reps and move to the next station. Clear directions were on the exercise Winke’s at each corner. Cobains to the PAX for not setting up the rotation correctly (we needed to move clockwise instead of counterclockwise). No matter – the PAX figured it out!
Station 1 – Drago Balls (10 reps in rotation X 20 rounds = 20 reps)
Each PAX team could decide how to approach this station as 20 consecutive reps with these coupons are tough! 10 reps were all that was required, but teams decided to work through the exercises in 2 sets of 10 instead.

- Squatted Ball Curls
- Drago Ball Swings
- Skull Crushers/Back Scratchers
Sprint to Station 2 as a Group

Crawl Beat to Station 1 as a Group
Repeato until time called (most teams finished the first station of round 2)
Plank for all to re-assemble, they mosey down two levels of the deck (the long way) and then (as we were running tight on time) back out to and down the spiral, down Bellemeade to the shovel flag. Let the record show that Bird’s Nest beat Graffiti – again!
- American Hammers X 10 IC
