The BackBlast:


Alas – the arrival of F3 Fort Collins’s newest AO! YHC had been talking with Ditka for some time about starting a third AO to give the PAX an additional day to get in some gloom action, and it couldn’t have arrived at a better time. As we march closer to winter, any opportunity to push ourselves to stay fit – in spite of the temptations to fartsack, eat crap, and decelerate – is going to be welcomed.

With this in mind, YHC took the reins of the Q spot for the inaugural launch, made it known on our local Slack Channel, and kicked it off out of the gate of 0530.  We started on the basketball courts where YHC gave the disclaimer near a dark pile of #cinderfun, and we launched right into it…


  • SSH x 20 (IC)
  • String Rippers x 15 (IC)
  • Monkey Humpers x 15 (IC)
  • Merkins x 10 (IC)

Recognizing the need to get the lungs opened up before starting on any lifting routine, YHC called for a Burpee Bunny Hop1 across the basketball court and back. Lungs sufficiently opened, we rocked right into…

The Thang:

Tabata lifting routine with various cinder blocks based on what PAX could handle at any given time (YHC included).  We managed to get through four rounds of this (45s on, 15s, off).

  • Thrusters
  • KB/Coupon Swings
  • Goblet Squats
  • Shoulder Press
  • Overhead Reverse Lunge
  • Deadlifts
  • Rows2
  • Curls

After a perfectly timed four rounds, we put in some…


  • LSF x 30 (IC)
  • LBC x 20 (IC)
  • American Hammer x 15 (IC)


  • Peanut Butter Ruck – 09/23, 5:30 PM, launching from DC Oakes on Harmony Rd. Bring a ruck full of Peanut Butter or canned goods, or a backpack full of Peanut Butter or canned goods, or just a GIANT BAG of Peanut Butter or canned goods. Rucking four miles total.
  • #TAP for ExciteBike, travelling this weekend for BMX trip.

YHC took us out.

Naked Man Moleskin:

  1. Real #crowdPleaser; we should do this more often… definitely opens the lungs.
  2. Corn Rows?

It was a pleasure to kick off this newest AO with you fine gentlemen. I look forward to building this AO with you, together. Aye!
