When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for YHC to develop a Q that is connected to the weather, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle said Q, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the events which impel them to create such a Q.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are welcome at F3, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are access to free, peer-led workouts that occur outdoors, rain or shine, led in a rotating fashion by their peers, and end in a Circle of Trust.
Y’all, I didn’t PLAN to have a hurricane-themed Q when I put my name on the Q sheet. But when you’re sitting around looking at the forecast and realize that the remnants of a named storm are moving through the area in a fashion which will entitle the PAX to plenty of water, ya got to react accordingly.
This beatdown doesn’t just have a backblast; it has a youtube documentary. Shout out to Snot Rocket for coming out when injured and playing the role of videographer while burning 500 calories modifying. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXW79fvybwM&feature=youtu.be
Let’s swim/mosey – Everyone’s not gonna stay dry. Let’s start by finding the wettest area of the parking lot and starting with boxcutters. The SSH, slow Weedpickers, sun gods, and what wet beatdown would be complete without Michael Phelps?!
Snag a coupon (cinder block). Hurricanes go in cycles, and one corner is typically much stronger because it feeds on warm water. So four stations. 20 coupon curls, 20 burpees, 20 tri extensions, and 20 goblet squats. Rinse and repeat.
Every hurricane has an eye. Return the coupons to their stack and relish in the eye. Mosey to top of stairs. Meteorologists watch barometric pressure when storms approach… because barometric pressure DIPS. So we’re gonna do some dips. Couple sets of those and mosey on.
Bottom of Apex hill. Snag a partner. One partner does Bonnie Blairs while the other bear crawls up Apex hill. Slip n’ slide down, and swap places. After each partner has slid, swap to Merkins and Crab walks, and slides down.
We killed the slip n’ slide after 1-1.5 cycles – enough to have fun, not enough to damage grass. Want to be a good steward of where we get to work out.
Praises: High Dive adoption. The Situation’s marriage miletone. Strength and energy for Exile for his 100mi ultra.
Most fun YHC has ever had Qing a beatdown.
