LikeLike Reply 8/29/17 QIC – Priorities PAX – FNG Croc, Priorities, Screen Door F3 Monterey is underway!!! After a few weeks of solo Qs, just YHC alone with the shovel flag, F3 Monterey has pax! Welcome FNG Croc! Side note, Croc is like a 99% HC for the Norcal Tough Mudder. Don’t worry, I’ll close up that last 1%! #ABH Also joining us in the gloom was Screen Door, down range from F3 Hampton Roads. He’ll be appearing 1 time only at Hill Yeah this Saturday as well so don’t miss the East Coast invasion. YHC also happens to have the Q… Here’s how it went: Warmup- SSHs x 20 IC Imperial Walkers x 20 IC Don Quixotes x 15 IC (Counted in spanish, Hampton Roads style…) LBCs x 38 IC Leg Raises x 30 IC The Thang- Modified DORA 1-2-3 with 3 pax we formed a single team to tackle 150 Merkins, 300 LBCs and 450 squats alternating sprints across the soccer field and back Next was an attempt at a Catch Me If You Can. Also modified (poorly I might add) to accommodate 3 people. First pax started bear crawls across the field, second started Crawl Bears while the 3rd started 5 Burpees. When finished, the pax doing burps sprint to start crawl bears, the crawl bearer sprinted to start bear crawls and the bear crawler started 5 burpees. Rinse and repeat. Except Screen door, with his obnoxiously long arms and legs, was too fast a bear crawler to make the timing work so… What was the advice from the Nation? Press on (like it was intentional) if you screw up? Moving on! Next was time to explore the AO which meant leaving the safety of the soccer field and repelling down our version of Stink Hill. Ok so it’s not that steep but it is about twice as tall as Stink Hill. Strava claims 150 ft elevation in about a 1/4 mile hill. What goes down must come up, right? Back up the hill stopping for B.O.M.B.S. along the way. Burpees x5, Overhead claps x10, Merkins x15, Big boy sit-ups x20, squats x25. Back to the flag for some 6MOM. The pax finished out what was left of the Hampton Roads monthly challenge (Quad P) which for that day was 150LBCs/60Leg Lifts/2:15 High Plank. Circle of Trust- After numbers and names, YHC shared a little from a sermon this last Sunday about not letting technology get in the way of real life. An ongoing battle in the Priorities household especially with 3 young kids. Bottom line, let’s work harder at being present at home, at work, at school, at meals, with our spouse, with our kids, etc. I could go on… Lastly, TAPS went out to our F3 Brothers on the gulf coast. Stay safe my friends, the Nation is here to help. Everyone, including YHC was tired of here YHC talk so Screen Door took us out with a prayer. First of many F3 Monterey workouts in the books! Standby for a Screen Door Q on Thursday!

An awesome group for YHC’s first Q on this side of the country and #HIM, Screen Door, was gracious enough to travel the 3000 miles just to come to this workout! And maybe for some dumb MBA class he’s taking… but mostly for this workout! YHC tried to throw in as many Hampton Roads traditions as possible, like counting Don Quixotes in Spanish, the F3 exercise draft and we even crowned the first SF Peninsula Duck Jousting champ! Here’s how it went down: SSHs x25 IC Imperial Walkers x20 IC Don Quixotes x15 (don’t Q what you can’t do! Some day I’ll learn to count higher than quince…) Mosey to the bleachers and run every set of stairs followed by 7s (Dips/Derkins) Mosey to the other bleachers and run every set of stairs, then 7s (Derkins/Dips) Mosey to the goal line for the start of the F3 exercise draft! The rules: Every pax draws an exercise from the bucket. Everyone then starts at the goal line and does a line drill (10 and back, 20 and back, 30…50 and back) At each line, each pax performs his exercise x5 or if your exercise is something like bear crawls or lunges, you do it to the line and then run back. Since everyone is doing a different exercise, when your round is complete, you find someone with a less desirable exercise and finish with them. The first person to finish each round gets first pick in the next round and the option to draw a different exercise if his first is unwanted. Since Suave was most often the winner, regardless of the difficulty of exercise, we’d make him put SSHs back for Burpees or Bear Crawls… And the pax finished 6 rounds! AYE!! Some of the favorite exercises included Carolina Dry-docks, Catalina Wine Mixers, Double and Triple the Lines, Duck Walks, Frog Jumps and Crawl Bears to name a few. If you want to find out everything in the bucket, you have to pay a visit to it’s home in F3 Monterey! The pax finished off the morning with some “friendly combat between Pax in the duck walk position” #exicon After a heated battle, Rudy out maneuvered Reco to become the inaugural SF Peninsula Duck Joisting champion! After names and numbers, YHC ended with some words of wisdom on trying to be better men this week. Better fathers, husbands, sons, co workers and stewards of God’s creation. I’m still working on it. Too much talking from YHC so El Pastor prayed us out in the BOM. Great work fellas! Announcements: Tough Mudder October 14th. #ABH Currently working out some details for post game RVing with YHC and Sub Prime! 2nd F opportunity if any pax want to join YHC at the Dodgers vs. Giants game on Wed. Sep 13th. Who’s gonna step up and site Q a workout in the South Bay? YHC is a hard commit if his commute is an hour or less. DO NOT MISS the return of Girardi on Q next week.

LikeLike Reply 9/5/17 QIC – Priorities PAX – FNG Sharkbait and Priorities 9/7/17 QIC – Priorities PAX – Croc and Priorities So I’m pretty sure it’s against some kind of rule to combine 2 workouts into one backblast but when you Q 4 workouts in a week, sometimes rules must be broken. Tuesday morning at Tabletop brought a #HIM into the F3 fold. YHC is helpless to get creative juices flowing by himself but with some time have officially decided his F3 name will be Sharkbait. His curiosity was peaked by the Art of Manliness podcast which just happened to coincide with YHC’s relocation to Monterey. There are no coincidences in F3! Welcome Sharkbait! YHC got to deliver some rare 1 on 1 training to a new FNG so we tried out some staples of the Priorities playbook. Warmup: SSHs x20 IC IW x20 IC DQ x15 IC 1 warmup lap around the field The Thang: The FNG was taught how to count as we completed a standard DORA 1-2-3 with a run from goal to goal. He did about 30 extra merkins before catching on but that’s why we start with the basics! After the counting lesson we did some Catch Me If You Can with bear crawls and 5 Burpees. This was much more affective with 2 people than trying it with 3 last week! Last was a little exploring the AO as we moseyed down the secret hill off the back side of the neighborhood. What goes down must come up! On the way back we did some flutter kicks, arm circles and something else. Squats? My memory thingy isn’t what’s it called, working? Anyway, back to the flag for numbers, names and prayers out. There is nothing better than a 2 person BOM with a guy you’ve just met. Aye!! Thursday got F3 Monterey stalwarts Croc and YHC extra sandy! Our first true beach workout was a blast! #bashatthebeach A little lack of solid ground underneath the toes makes even the easiest of exercises exponentially more challenging. After a short warmup of SSHs and arm circles, the pax took to the beach for a little F3 Draft Lottery, bucket of fun brought back from HillYeah for the amusement of all that could not make the trek on Saturday. (Un)fortunately, the luck of the draw had us avoiding the typically difficult Burpees and Bear Crawls but we did manage to get some quality work in. Some of the worst being Double the Lines, Triple the Lines, Crab Cakes, Carolina Dry Docks and (the infinitely more difficult in sand) Catalina Wine Mixers. Hardest of all without question in the sand was lunges! Gonna have some sore glutes in the morning… After 7 rounds, the two mighty oaks looked more like the swaying palm trees above them, bending at the slightest breeze but refusing break. Finished with a COT of numbers, names and the always fun 2 man BOM. There is no better feeling than the sweaty, sandy touch of a fellow pax on a california beach as the gloom fades! Announcements: Tough Mudder October 14th 2nd F at AT&T Park on September 13th. YHC and ’88 are HCs. Don’t let us Dodger fan just roll over you SF! Girardi Q on Saturday at Hill Yeah!

Yes, it’s normally reserved for a VQ and yes, it’s normally with Budweiser but we felt it apropos to celebrate the launch with a cerveza salute of our own and since it is Cinco de Mayo, we opted for Modelo Especial (to keep it on the light side).

The Thang: Block Brigade: -Mosey to Y.H.C. truck and single file behind the truck (16 deep), we continue to unload 23 lb retaining wall blocks, brigade style. As instructed by the QIC, we kept the blocks overhead, until everyone had a coupon in the air, then we walk back to the A.O……blocks overhead the whole way.

COT Naked Moleskin: Week 3 at HANGAR 1 and all systems are a go! 2 more FNG’s via the Nextdoor App. Not sure who gets the #tclaps, Subprime for steady promoting on Nextdoor or all the M’s on Nextdoor who tell their husbands about F3? Either way, it’s being given away. Speaking of giving it away, Edison coming thru strong and early with the E.H. of Buffy. Looking back on my VQ at Hillyeah!, I just knew I had to introduce the men to the concept of coupons. 23 lb. retaining wall blocks were just what the doctor ordered. HANGAR 1 now has it’s own set of coupons, conspicuously stashed at the A.O., should anyone feel compelled on their next Q. Mustang, Subprime and Turnimus round out the next 3 Q’s but we are still looking for a few good men to ring that #2ndbell and lead us in a workout. YHC is also waiting for some of the other Hillyeah! regulars to make their inaugural visit to HANGAR 1! (sup wit dat?) Coffeteria at Roger’s Deli seem to suit us just fine. Plenty spacious, coffee as black as my badass black F3 shirt and plenty of breakfast options. I’m just not sure what’s harder, the 60 minute beatdown we endure at 7am or the decision to stay away from the bacon covered maple bars? Lastly, pre-orders for HANGAR 1 shirts end on Thursday the 24th. We are fully funded so the shirts will go to print and will be sent out and delivered by mid June but once the pre-order ends, this design wont be available for purchase. If you’re looking for some new F3 SF PENINSULA gear, this design is once again available. Pre-orders will be taken till 5/30. P.S. HANGAR ONE workouts every Tuesday and Thursday at 5:45am (45 min) and STEPS at Central Elementary in Belmont, every Wednesday and Friday, 5:30am (45 min). GET THERE! See you in the Gloom!
