It was MT who first told me that sometimes you just need to put someone on the Q sheet when they haven’t Q’d in a while. He also told me that sometimes it comes back to bite you, but sometimes you don’t believe it until it’s Sunday night and Tebow texts you asking if you can take the Tuesday Q.

After 200 burpees at the Sasquatch on Saturday, there would be no burpees today. YHC decided to dust off an old BD that he delivered to a light Saturday crowd last year.


Mosey to the upper pavilion parking lot for:

  • 30x Side Straddle Hops
  • 10x Weedpickers
  • 15x Imperial Walkers

Then to the pavilion and grab a bench for:

  • 15 dips IC

Back to the flag for Mary led by Black Box, Shiner, and DC2. Fin.


Too many Covid cases in PAX extended families, including Speedo’s nieces and Shiner’s dad. Prayers for all suffering from this disease.

Prayers for those dealing with unemployment

Naked-Man Moleskin:

GREAT things happening at the Gladiator. Always good to have the chatter from DC2 and Shiner, glad to see them consistently in the mix now. Days are better when I start them with F3. Thanks for letting me lead

  1. Great Backblast write-up. Stole this workout for the F3 Salt Lake PAX today. We named the Thang “Penalty Box” and kept with your “No Burpees” promise for the day. Thank You for sharing.
