Given the snafu that was YHC’s scheduling mistake on his initial birthday Q, the need to make up for the fail was definitely top of mind. Taking a page yet again from some very seasoned Q’s (i.e., make it simple, but not easy), as well the fact that a bum wheel might prevent full participation, YHC took the approach of a few exercises / higher reps (although the initial explanation could have gone better). Coupled with a beat you could rep out to, this was (hopefully) a birthday BD folks will remember for a while.

Windmills (Abe Vigoda speed)
Moroccan Nightclubs

Naked-Man Moleskin:

When YHC looks back to his 51st birthday and the physical/spiritual/emotional gains over the ensuing year, there is absolutely no doubt that F3 and the brotherhood therein has played a vital role achieving those gains. Accountability to others, and the absolute truths that “iron sharpens iron” and “it doesn’t get easier, you just get stronger” have become true building blocks in my life. I’m still humbled by the power of this brotherhood, as well as the responsibility leading. Thank you all for the opportunity to Q once again.
