Columbia – Thunder

Hills & Rats at Thunder

15 PAX emerged from the #Fartsack on this beautiful April morning looking for a prime opportunity to #OwnTheGloom. Standing on the hallowed grounds of Hand Middle School was YHC, who got the call just after 9:00 PM last night from Adrian, who was looking for a substitute Q.  In a manner that would make Cesspool …

Rambling Thunder

20 PAX (yeah, that’s right Hammer) emerged from the Fartsack on this perfect February morning to take the DRP at the greatest AO in the history of the modern world.  As YHC was preparing for what seems like a one-a-year chance to Q at Thunder, there was a desire to take the PAX out of …

Conditions:  22 and cold (but not for long) Disclaimer and make sure all know to wear reflective gear. Depart the parking lot and …

Adrian!?!?

Every now and again a special fella comes along.  For F3 Columbia and #Thunder that man is none other than Adrian.  Despite his recent bout with the flu and chronic pinky issues, the man instills a passion in the pax to strive for more – even when he’s not there (after calling in an #EpsteinsMother …

The Dirty 30

YHC turned 30 yesterday and it wasn’t sitting well. I decided to turn up the intensity on this find #tanktopthursday to help release the feelings. It worked, I’m good now. Weather: Hot and muggy (“weather” autocorrected to “death” which was appropriate given the 120% humidity these days) The thang… Mosey to courtyard SSH x 15 …

Dora the Expolora

13 PAX posted to Hammer for a little fun.  YHC traded off Q responsibilities with McNugget at BATTLE so it was appropriate we bring a little heat to the boys at HAMMER.  Mainly because they expect it and can handle it. Conditions:  74 and muggy! Head to the block pile and 1/2 of the PAX …

All for Beta

10 PAX met in the gloom to #getbetter, and honor Betamax.  All excercises, historically, had been Beta-disapproved.

Circled up: 10 four count merkins in cadence, 10 four count Russian Twists in …

Warm Wet Thunder

It felt good to work out today without layers and a stocking cap! Nice 65 degrees called for short sleeves. While a little wet, that did not hinder the 14  PAX that showed up for some work. We moved through three stations and covered all the main areas of the AO. Weather: 65 with an …

Keep it Simple, Stupid

After seeing Welcome Week’s email about Qing just before kickoff of the Natty Championship, with nothing planned and little imagination, YHC decided to steal one of Cesspool’s thoroughly planned out workouts from a while back.  It’s also simple-minded since there was presumably a lack of sleep among the pax w/ the late game finish. The …

40’s on the house

According to Wikipedia, “the core of the body is broadly considered to be the torso. Functional movements are highly dependent on this part of the body, and lack of core muscular development can result in a predisposition to injury.”  If there’s one thing your average joe needs to work on it’s their core.  Working the …
