PAX1 then drops barrel and let’s it roll to partner while jogging down hill.

Rinse and repeat 6 times

Ring of Fire

Irkins and derkins with partners on the barrel

PAX1 walks backward up hill carrying barrel and rolls it down to PAX2

Rinse and repeat 3 times

Barrel tracks back to the flag

–barrels laid on the ground like railroad tracks. First PAX picks up first barrel and moseys to the end and places it on the ground then circles back to the end of PAX line.

Pickle pointer ICX10

Flutter kicks ICX25


Disappointed 60° could only muster 8 PAX out of the fartsack. The barrels were a fun change of pace. Lots of squats made for a good quad burn. Ring of fire in derkin position proved to be awful. Lots of moaning and groaning ensued. Otherwise, not a lot of mumble chatter. “Barrels aren’t heavy, just awkward,” was one comment. “A year and a half before I see these barrels again,” was another. Good workout on a perfect morning.


Blackjack and a new record!

48 degrees, on a clear Wednesday.

Legs were still burning from Monday’s workout. Lots of mumble about that to start the day! Excited to have an FNG show up and to learn he is gasman’s brother was a bonus. FNG will be giving Wapner a hard time when he sees him next since he invited him and was MIA. Glad to hear Gasman is doing well and should have him back in a little over a month! Mumble grew to loud groans when it was announced this would be our third straight motivator workout. Record from 11 was established- but no one seemed to be excited or proud of it- angry might fit the mood better. 7 of diamonds was planned to celebrate baseball season back in full swing, but blackjack took longer than anticipated, so an Indian run filled the remaining time. (210 merkins, 210 LBC and 2.7 miles put in today)

Encouragement to those that haven’t been in a while to come on back- even if you have to modify as needed. We would love to see you all back no matter the capacity!

Better weather is seeming to stick around- so let’s start putting on some heavy EH and grow our group to twenty posts each day by the end of the summer- if not sooner! Pass around guys you are working on to see if multiple EH doesn’t work a little stronger. Looking forward to another beat down on Friday!

Mosey to Flag



Good turn out for a Monday morning beatdown.  Weather was great and it felt good to be in shorts again.  Started off with a mosey past the petting zoo.  Could of really used some “smell good” as the animals were quite ripe.  Mumble chatter started early with the introduction of lunges all the way down the path.  Thinking about it the mumble never really stopped.   The rain overnight brought out an abundance of worms that got in the way of the bear crawls.  YHC wonders how many survived.  Bat Wing sucks.

Despite the dampness- a beautiful day to workout! Spring temps are coming!!!!! And working out after a boilermaker victory makes it all the better! Shoulder pretzels were in honor of the 17 missed free throws to help encourage more makes from the line against Virginia, and motivator from 8 not only to help is get ready for Maestros next Q, but to celebrate Purdue’s upcoming elite 8 appearance on Saturday. Nice to have a couple visitors from Indy join us for the fun today! Thanks for making the trip DC and Tulip! A nice variety of up and down exercises today- and chatter about the excitement of “No Burpee April” being on the horizon. Remember 60 and 62 burpees on Saturday and Sunday! Took a little longer than expected to complete each set of Tammy- so cut 4th shelter in half and finished with burpees so we didn’t have to do any at home. Hoping the warm weather will get more early morning motivation for more men- and looking forward to having the spring breakers back in the fold next week! Safe travels for all- have a great weekend, and looking forward to a Piper Q on Monday!!!!!

Name O’ Rama



Clear, crisp and absolutely B-E-A-U-tiful, 35 F (ish)

PAX:  Maize, Motorboat, Piper, Crout, Snoop, Fresh Cream, Aaron Bugleman (FNG), Wolverine, PVC, Beanie, Brian Smith (FNG), Quick(ie), Tulip, Picasso, Tony Spears (FNG), Brickyard, Randy Rife (FNG), IM, Logger, Woodchuck, Wapner, DC, Zamboni, Beefsteak, Maestro, Maestro 2.0 (FNG), Pawnee, Flash, Khaki, Cosmo (Q)

What a GREAT Day for a 2nd year celebration and F3 Indy’s first convergence!  Following a slight logistics scare (Q/coordinator didn’t know there was a race at the #Hill this particularly day) and a reroute to the lower east side (thanks Khaki for being traffic cop), the introduction, warm up and beatdown began.

Huge gathering of old friends, new faces and down streamers for a celebratory beatdown that YHC thought was a bit harder than originally anticipated!  All worked hard and progress was observed by some of the newer PAX to F3.  Huge shoutout to #Black Cat for another trip to the #Hill (always great to see these guys),

Q enjoyed the mumble chatter as routines like Wapner’s Revenge and Brickyard’s BURPback Mountain were introduced and experience for the first time by some of the newer PAX.   (NOTE:  The routine is not Broke as the Q mistakenly called it…..Wapner was VERY quick to point out Q’s mistake.)  Q also enjoyed the core workout…and thanks to Zamboni….Q got to work in some C-Sit position.

Namo’o Rama was AWESOME with the hammer/anvil combo and the huge COT was truly inspiring as the opportunity to honor our Brickyard for all his efforts.  It was fitting as well to welcome the new site Q for Saturdays (Maize) and the new Nantan for Indy, Cornwallis.

HUGE THANKS to all that help organize this event!  Special thanks to Pawnee and Khaki (film crew), Logger and his M (food and heat) and Zamboni and team (awards).

It is very inspiring and humbling to be part of such a great group of men striving to be the very best version of themselves and desiring to make an impact in our world!  Two years is a significant milestone (especially as we look back to where we’ve been) but there’s more in front of us than behind us, more men that need this in their lives and more positive impacts to make in our world!

Keep posting, shield-locking and passing it on!

ALWAYS a privilege,

Five PAX showed up today to meet our new friend Sheldon Cooper. Sheldon did not disappoint and became quite annoying as we got down to the final numbers. But maestro kicked it into a higher gear for the last three or four rounds and inspired the rest of us to follow right behind. Piper states he wanted to do something hard because we didn’t need man boobs here- so after we were done with Sheldon, we tried another friend Tammy Wynette, famous for her song stand by your man. While we ran out of time to complete the circuit we did complete 120 reps of the total 200. Mary was more intense than it looked on paper. LBCF never disappoint. Not a bad days work for the first day of spring. Hoping to see more Friday before everyone heads their separate ways for Spring Break!

Privileged to Q again. Had fun and learned a lot trying something new. Hopeful to be able to complete it with Diamond hands next time. We will see. Didn’t take long to forget about the Motivator today, maybe I’ll add one to it every time I Q. See how long it takes before I’m banned from leading. Have a great week leading up to the tourney. Should be fun to see Purdue represent the great state of Indiana. We’ll have to do something with the total points that Purdue scores during the entire tourney some day.

Moleskin – The weather was perfect this morning, air was crisp, but we were dressed right and it was comfortable. We chatted about how fast kids grow, home towns, and the medical field. Great conversation and good start to the week. Thank you Motorboat!
