The BackBlast:


Gloom was the setting at Abduction this week. The cool air would prove useful for the Men of F3-Fort Collins whilst their heart rates were sky high! YHC gave an intro, the disclaimers, and a reminder Flo has a birthday this week so we’d honor him with a dedication to his 32nd year!


YHC knows Flo loves leg day, so PAX kicked of with a…

Yoke Walk – PAX in line began lunge walking. Last PAX member picked up a 60-lbs. ruck sack* and moseyed to the front, set down the sack. As the last PAX came to the sack, he picked it up preferably over the shoulder (like a yoke) and repeat-o until all PAX had a go.

Batwings – 20/20/20/20 IC forward arm circles, reverse arm circles, seal claps, overhead claps

String rippers x 10 IC

Moseyed to the cones**

The Thang:

Part 1 – It’s your birthday! Time to party!

3 sets of cones*** set 5 yds apart. PAX bear crawled to each cone and performed 10 Merkins (12 on the last one to make…32!). Crab walked back and performed 10 BBSU at each cone (12 on the last…there’s a theme somewhere here). Repeato.

Most people probably make bad decisions on their birthday eve. So PAX figured Flo is no different. We all asked forgiveness with:

Absolutions – 32 OYO. 8-count exercise – start in plank, perform a Groiner (feet in and out – 1, 2), each hand down to elbows (3,4), Chili Jack (hop out and back (5, 6), back to plank (each hand 7, 8).****

Moseyed to Part 2 – Party like it’s 1989!

PAX paired up at the picnic tables. YHC believes Flo likes to go out and party. YHC believes Flo would frequent his favorite bar. Most likely Flo’s favorite bar is…

Coyote Ugly – Paired Pax get in wheel barrow position and while his legs are being held, PAX who is the wheel barrow climbs up to the bench, perform 1 Merkin, climbs up to the table top, performs 1 Merkin, climbs down to bench, performs 1 Merkin, climbs down to floor, performs 1 Merkin. Repeat 5x, flapjack.

Moseyed back to cones, where a 4th set of cones 40 yds away sat. YHC believes Flo wants birthday presents, and what he most wants (probably) are Rainbows and Unicorns…

Bear crawl to said cone, perform 46***** SSH (Rainbows) and 20 Burpees (Unicorns). Mosey back to start and repeat with 32 SSH and 10 Burpees.

PAX looked like we had what it takes, so YHC audibled for one last Thang…

Burpee mile with 8 burpees every 1/4 mile (Thirty-Two!!!).

Moseyed to the flag…


Flutter kicks – x 10 IC

Nolan Ryan – L/R x 9 IC

American Hammers – x 32 IC


Closed out with a prayer giving thanks for the opportunity to lead the fine, fine men of F3 Fort Collins. It was an honor leading you.

YHC was truly touched with news of Ditka’s FIL moving his big toe after suffering a stroke. Super awesome news!! YHC may have leaked awesomeness from his eyes…

Prayers were lifted for Excitebike’s sister, who is battling cancer.

Naked Man Moleskin:

Our bad on updating the website on Abduction Post time…whoops! PAX was delighted to see a Fellow F3 from Seattle join us…at the old post time! We shifted to an hour earlier for summer hours. Massive apologies to Folley, who was gracious in accepting our apology. He stayed for coffee, which was a great chance to get to know him.

* Supposed to have been a sandbag *cough* *cough*

** The dreaded cones! A Bunsen Burner staple!

*** There were 4, which was noticed. YHC promised the 4th was for later!

**** Entire PAX was praying for forgiveness after that! It looked good on paper.

***** YHC age…couldn’t let it ALL be about Flo!
