Moleskin: PAX divided up into two teams, Team Bravo and Team Charlie. Wager was made that losing team would provide a VQ in the near future. The wager also stated that the loosing would complete 10 burpees before each workout until the VQ occurred. Team Charlie was the victor in todays challenge. Team Bravo will be doing 10 burpees in the gloom Monday, we will be waiting for Porkchop to Q on Wednesday, thus fulfilling the wager. Fun fact for this challenge, each PAX lifted 1 Ton of sand today between the over the shoulder lifts and feed sack front squats. Side note, PAX learned that the Subaru outbacks can thread the needle between PAX, sand bags, and tires laying along side the road, the second being that time seems to stand still and reps don’t go by very quickly while doing the motivator from 10. Big week coming up with the Two year anniversary of F3 Frankfort on Friday. Next weeks Q’s, Monday Oompa, Wednesday Porkchop, and Friday Wapner.

Yours truly can’t remember his age and now can’t count PAX in attendance. After some discussion, it was determined that 7 men posted. Great to have our newer guys with us because they’re the only ones posting! Looking forward to the return of our vacationers next week. We had another NOR this morning. Christian apparently has trouble holding his liquor. The Merlot Splash that was blamed on Tofu appears to be very close to an actual “Merlot” splash. You see, our boy Christian likes White Claw. Apparently, this is a drink popular with the ladies. According to Tofu, he likes the sparkling drinks. We welcomed “Sparkle” to our group this morning. Welcome Sparkle. Remember, Coffeeteria Monday morning. Hope to see you all there.

Beautiful day! Good to see 2 FNG’S today! Not to mention, we had our first merlot splash! That shows I pushed the guys to the max, and that was my goal! Lots of mumble about all the moseying, burpees, and the suicides we did. CrabbyPo got chosen to do an extra suicide on my fancy wheel. But he didn’t show up! So, that means, CrabbyPo, you owe us a suicide!

You know it’s gonna be a great workout when you start Balls to the Wall. Chatter started reminiscing about Friday’s workout from Burpee Hell With Rite Aid. Good laughter today with high spirits. Lots of mumblechatter right from the start as it got intense from the beginning. Wave of merkins only to five, as the number of PAX increase- holding planks gets harder!!!! If your arms aren’t smoked after today’s workout, you are impressive specimen of a man! In total, 155 merkins completed. Keep sniffing a PAX record. Not quite there yet! Discussion about continuing to improve ourselves physically and mentally. Reminder about Hot Dog fest this weekend- touch base with Maestro if you want to work. And as school gets closer to starting back up- a back-to-school breakfast after the workout on either Friday Aug. 2, or Monday Aug. 5. Cast your vote for which day

would work better for you! Majority wins! Hope everyone shows up for Gasman as he has his virginity taken away with his VQ on Wednesday!!!!

Not much chatter to start the morning. Appears everyone is recovering from the start of the fair this weekend! After a round of Aiken legs grumble started as Walk like an Egyptian brought some burn to the legs despite not being a huge distance. More grumble followed when told what the “Sheldon Cooper” was. Tofu led the way proving once again- youth and long legs would be nice for the older fellas! A good mental push morning for everyone that posted today. Hoping to get more back for Wednesday- I am sure many of us will have some elephant ears or funnel cakes to work off as fair week continues!

We welcomed 2 new members this morning. We introduce to you Phanatic because he’s an Atlanta Braves fan who doesn’t like Philadelphia. We also introduce Tofu who works at ADM. It’s great to see our group growing. We have never had 14 of our own Black Cat members post! It’s a new milestone and one to try to break. The workout was heavy on cardio which increased the suck factor but we all need it. The tunnel of love was a fun new exercise that we will probably see again. Even the T Bombs will make another appearance. We closed with a prayer for safety tomorrow for everyone involved with things that go boom. See you all Friday.

YHC felt that we should take it easy and do a pyramid workout. Start with a single rep of the first exercise and then move up to 2 reps of the next exercise. He announced it should be easy with the goal of getting up to 33 reps and then back down. He had not attempted this at home……

Q changed up a couple at the end to keep us on our 6 as we were running out of time and then we went back and finished the reps. Q smoked himself and changed a lot of exercises to OYO instead of IC as he couldn’t keep the cadence. We did not make it back down the pyramid as we were behind schedule. Grabbed rucks and headed back.

COT and Name-o-rama. FNG Elliot is now “Ace” Welcome.
YHC’s 2.0 Zeke is doing great. Surgery was better than expected and he was home within 48 hours.

Moleskin: Q will try and do his own workout prior so that he knows how to do it better, haha. It’s always a pleasure. Be well and do great things with epic people.
