Kamikaze IV gets better with Age!

Turning Point hosted record attendance as 23 Pax posted for Round 4 of the #Kamikaze.  Typically in the movies, the sequels don’t ever live up to the originals.  However, Kamikaze IV proved to be bigger, badder, and better than the previous rounds.  With the larger attendance, YHC took a Mud Run approach by breaking the pax into 6 groups of 4 or less.  Kamikaze V will have a lot to live up to.  Strong work by the pax as always!  Inspiring to see some many men post to #getbeter #bebetter!

Conditions: A Chilly 67 deg, 73% Humidity

COT:

Prayer

DEVOTIONAL:

Since we were running short on time, the traditional 3 Minutes of Imperial Walkers for Walker didn’t get in before COT.  So after the COT, there was a circle of prayer for Walker and others while doing imperial Walkers.  The 3 minutes turned into 6.5 minutes as everyone in the Circle prayed!  This was on of the most meaningful periods of time that YHC has experienced in F3!  TClaps Guys.  It was Awesome!

MOLESKIN:

  • Todays work surpassed the last Kamikaze.  Both had 3 rounds, but last time was 12 reps, with bricks, then 10 reps with out bricks, and 8 reps with bricks.  Inspiring work by the pax.  Definitely got better since the last time.
  • Unofficial Count – 168 Merkins, 168 BBSU (112 BBSU with Bricks)
  • 10 Pax posted for a StrideLite run before Turning Point.  It was a nice 30 minute out and back over some hills near Turning Point.  Strangely enough, the pre-workout run seemed to help with the Kamikaze.  Definitely unexpected and rewarding!
  • It was cool to see all Lexington AO represented and a couple crossed the dam.  YHC apologizes that yall missed out on the little black grass seeds.  That just means you need to visit Turning Point again when the grass is higher!

  1. woa woa, holdup. Godfather part 2, Empire Strikes Back, Captain America: the Winter Soldier…Men in Black 2…Speed 2…Son of The Mask…umm nevermind, ok you are typically right

    1. Ha Ha… I thought Rocky IV was the best Rocky move. Back to the Future II was pretty good… not many others though.
