The BackBlast:


F3 FoCo is starting to hit its stride. And it’s with that attitude that six studs joined YHC in the #zoomGloom with a big grunty thirst for pain.  After YHC ran a mile to an audible’d #AO the disclaimer was disclaimed, pleasantries were dispensed, and we got under way…


  • String Rippers (15 – OYO)
  • Sun Gods (10 forward; 10 unwind; OYO)
  • Chinooks (15 forward; 15 unwind; OYO)
  • Copperhead Squats (15 – OYO)
  • Merkins (15 – OYO)
  • Plankjacks (15 – OYO)
  • Burpees (5 – OYO)

The Thang:

The meal for the morning was a two-fer.  One part Blimps, the other part Merkin Mania.


The deck was stacked against the PAX on this one.  Each round consisted of successive exercises (Exercise 1, Exercise 1 + Exercise 2, Exercise 1 + Exercise 2 + Exercise 3, etc.)

  • 5 Burpees
  • 10 Lunges (each leg)
  • 15 Imperial Walkers
  • 20 Merkins
  • 25 Plankjacks
  • 30 Squats

Merkin Mania

YHC promised an upper body smoker, and tried not to disappoint.  Four Rounds (should have been five – thanks Zoom!)

  • 20 Regular Merkins, 20 SSH
  • 20 Diamond Merkins, 20 Monkey Humpers (#crowdPleaser)
  • 20 Wide Merkins, 20 Squats
  • 20 Hand-Release Merkins, 20 Bonnie Blairs
  • 20 Derkins, 20 Plankjacks*


  • Curds wanted to give a special thanks to everyone supporting frontline workers (he works in health care); the outpouring of support he’s received has been #topShelf.
  • Gear portal is open here – we’re halfway to getting our orders fulfilled; keep going!

Naked Man Moleskin:

  • YHC is incredibly impressed with the determination of these #FrontRange PAX.  General thought process was that it would be INCREDIBLY difficult to launch in CO, where men tend to be more “independent.”  However, it speaks volumes of the men who have taken the plunge and gotten involved.  This truly is a special region, and YHC could not be more excited for what’s to come…
  • Ditka – catch your breath brother and get your hands off your knees; that’s the French Army Surrender Position.
