Celebrating #TheCastle PAX…and some #Respect

One day after obtaining F3 Respect, 15 PAX posted together to help celebrate a milestone.  YHC decided to flip the script and celebrated the PAX who have helped me, more than they know, in my journey to #Respect.

Conditions – 65 and pleasant

Opened with the Disclaimer. T.O.Y. provided F3’s requested approach to help combat the spread of Coronavirus.  The PAX understood and only slight modification was needed.


  • Easy Butt Kicks
  • Imperial Walkers
  • SSH
  • Through the Tunnel
  • Calf Stretch
  • Calf Raises
  • Groin Stretch (Freebird Favorite)
  • Little Baby Arm Circles – Forward
  • Little Baby Arm Circles – Backward
  • Raise the Roof

Circuit 1: Block Work:  PAX went to the pile and grabbed their own block – no passing the block down the line.  Once back to the COP, YHC called the favorite exercises of #TheCastle PAX.

  • T.O.Y. – Curls *62 (Trying for 100, but YHC succumbed to mumble chatter)
  • Kamikaze – Pullover Press *20
  • Double Down – Kettleblock Swings *20
  • BallBoy – Chest Press*25
  • Grilz – Flutter kicks with Block *20
  • Wannabe – Block hold and drop *10
  • Selfie – Calf Raise with Block (no SpongeBob legs here)

   Circuit 2: Mosey to North Tombee

  • High Stick – Hill Run
  • Hugo – Squats*15
  • Katniss – Sprints *2 – YHC misjudged distance between mailboxes on first sprint, narrowly avoiding disaster as PAX couldn’t slow down
  • Lambchop – Big Boy Sit-ups*15 without butt pad (Hope you enjoyed the sack!)
  • Special K – Special K Crunch*15
  • Wham! –Bear Crawl Inch Worm
  • OBC – Pickle Pointers*15 (What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!)

Circuit 3:  Mosey to Picnic Tables and tennis courts

  • Quaker – Incline Merkins*15 (Guess Verbal HCs don’t count as an HC!)
  • Freebird – Jack Webbs* to 5 and 25
  • McLovin – Monkey Humpers*15, modified from Howling Monkey
  • Turncoat – Wave of Merkins  (Did the excess ear hair cause you to not hear your alarm?)
  • Turnpike – Solo Iron Cross *25, modified from Partner Iron Cross and Jump Rope Clicks

It’s an honor being a PAX of #TheCastle.  YHC has leaned on these men many times, and each time, overwhelming support, assistance and prayers were received.  Today was not about YHC, it was about #TheCastle PAX.

COT: Counterama; Name-O-Rama, Announcements – Another birthday Q on Monday with Selfie, #TClaps to T.O.Y. for the gift of Prune Juice.  Can’t wait to use it as a mixer for unsuspecting guests.

Continued prayers for those with Coronavirus and for its containment.
