Archives: Conquering the Eclipse Fartsack Monster

  • When: 20170801
  • QIC: SubMac
  • The PAX: FNG Airwolf, Clifford, Space Monkey, Dreamliner, SubMac
  • Ill start it off with TClaps to Clifford for conquering the Eclipse Fartsack Monster this morning!  And for being the first person at the AO!  We may have won the battle but the war against the fartsack monster is not over.

    After listening to the Art of Manliness podcast, Airwolf (FNG) found there was an F3 AO down the street from his house and contacted Dreamliner to get more information.  Today was his first post and we can already tell he’s going to push the group to new levels.

    Running with style – 1 lap around lake. On command switch to karaoke Right or Left, backwards run and normal run.

    Since the PAX was too burned out to perform Mike Tysons at the end of StinkHill Saturday, YHC decided to attempt them at the beginning of the workout.  The PAX completed 10, which was YHC’s limit.

    The next exercise was Circuits, a YHC favorite.  The exercises were Burpee Box Jumps, Incline Merkins, Lunges, Dips, WW2 Situps, Squats, Colt 45s with 25 lb dumbbells, Swing Crunch to Derkin, LBCs, and Bear Crawl to Crawl Bear.  Every exercise was 45 seconds with 15 seconds to get to next exercise and in ready position.  The PAX completed 2 rounds.  There was plenty of mumblechatter that died down once everyone got to the Swing Crunch to Derkins.  They are deceptively difficult.

    Finally the PAX circled up by flags for Captain Thor – 1:4 ratio of Big Boy Situp to American Hammer.  YHC made it to 3 Situps and 12 American Hammers before the abs were screaming.  The rest of the PAX looked ready for more.  With a few minutes left we went to Dealers Choice.  Space Monkey chose Box Cutters, Clifford chose Carolina Dry Docks, Airwolf chose Man Makers, and Dreamliner chose X-Factors.

    BOM – Listening, Patience, and Self-Control

    Proverbs 29:11 “A Fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back.”

    Romans 10:17 “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the Word of Christ.”

    James 1:19 “Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger.”

    YHC admits he struggles in these areas at times but tries to keep this passage in the forefront of his mind daily.  YHC encourages anyone who also struggles with this to remember to be quick to hear (listen), slow to speak (patience), and slow to anger (self-control).
