The BackBlast:


That primo Virginia fall weather when its not too hot but you’re not freezing your nipples off if you don’t wear a full snowboarding outfit but it only lasts for a couple of weeks before it escapes into the long bleak darkness of months of interminable winter frigidity so you better appreciate it while it’s here.

That is to say, pretty nice.

The Thang

Form to Failure: The PAX performed each of the following four exercises, the goal being to keep good form throughout, and to keep going until muscle failure. Once they performed all four OYO, they moseyed OYO to the parking lot and sprinted the length of it, slowseyed back to the playground and rinsed/repeated.

  1. Pull-ups
  2. Squats
  3. Merkins
  4. Crunchy Frogs

One final sprint competition across the parking lot–winner gets to pick the number of burpees for the toll.

Mosey back to the [flag] via Burpee Hollow (toll: 3 burpees).


Dealer’s Choice, AMRAP for 30 Secs: Boxcutters, LBCs, Superman, Freddy Mercury, Chillcut Plank, Dead Bugs


1 John 4:1Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God.

  • There is a lot of nonsense out in the world that a lot of people get tricked into believing and supporting–even smart, curious, judicious people.
  • The encouragement here is in all matters–spiritual, political, relational, dietary–to seek to be wise and careful in what we believe/support.
  • One of the best ways to guard against believing foolishness is having a community/others around you who you are willing to let challenge you, be it spouse, friends, family, church, or a bunch of weirdos in a parking lot at 5:30am.


  • None of the present PAX had been at this AO the day that YHC used this beatdown previously, so he did not feel bad about a little recycling.
  • Some mumble chatter about Halloween and parents’ propensity to over-consume their children’s candy.
  • In spite of YHC’s best attempts, a significant amount of discussion was centered on the low-carb diet YHC is currently undertaking, about which YHC is attempting to not be a zealot, as it is hard to not come across like an essential oils or other multi-level-marketing salesman. Hence, the BB image.
  • Significant amount of grumbling from those PAX who have been absent for a few weeks (*cough*cough* or months *cough*).


  • 6th Anniversary Convergence – Saturday, November 5, 0700-0800 @ Hyzer Bomb / Bennet’s Creek Park. We will be celebrating the 6th anniversary of F3 Hampton Roads.
  • F3/FiA Convergence – Saturday, December 3, 0730-0830 @ Hyzerbomb / Bennet’s Creek Park. Joint workout with FiA of Hampton Roads; post-beatdown ceremony to pass Nan’tan from Funny Car to Marvel.
