There are a few workouts that transcend time and space, leaving the PAX in awe.  Then there’s The Chuck Woolery Q.  We did the latter today.  10 PAX despised the comfort of a fartsack, woke up extra early this morning to hop on a flight to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, throat-punch a groundhog, and make it back in time to find some parallel-universe Santa dressed in a suit and tie, wrapping fire hoses around a poor light post in an adjacent parking lot.  Had they ridden a time travel jet instead and altered the course of existence forever just to teach a groundhog a lesson he never really needed in the first place?  Nope, it was just YHC and another holiday installment of #PitchforkWeirdness.

Others, who shall remain nameless but rhyme with @HayTM and @Lambi, avoided the sack like

Not one screen pass in the gameplan, Cam?  Just one?  How about fake one to keep them honest?  No?  Oh well.  #KeepPounding

Conditions:  It would snow hours later…. once it was warm enough.


  • SSH x 20 (IC)
  • Merkins x 15 (IC)
  • Mosey to get one more firehose from the shed (yes, we have our own equipment shed…. okay spot behind the shed…. the point is “get on our level”)

The Thang:

As promised, YHC presented the Chuck Woolery Q.  First, each PAX picked out their F3 Love Connection (partnered up) and headed towards the fire hoses (battleropes) with weights.  There are 5 stations set up with battle ropes.

What was Chuck’s signature move when moving to a commercial?  Darn YouTube doesn’t have a clip of it, but it was “We’ll be back in Two and Two” meaning the length of commercial breaks in those days.  He would also flash it up as the only known Anglo gang sign of its era.  #RespectTheDeuces

So here we go, two exercises were barked out by YHC, one on the battle ropes and one on the weights.  Partners switch exercises at the 1:01 mark.  We did 9 sets I believe.

  • Legs (BR), Manmakers (weights)
  • Arms (BR), Goblet Squates (weights)
  • Legs (BR), Shoulder Press (weights)
  • Arms (BR), Power Cleans (weights)
  • Legs (BR), Curls for the Girls (weights)
  • Arms (BR), Lunges (weights)

Mosey to the basketball court:  I couldn’t resist.  Nothing says love like a set of 17s.

  • Legs (BR), Tricep kickbacks (weights)
  • Arms (BR), Manmakers (weights)
  • Legs(BR), Big Boy Situps

5 MOM (Same Theme)

  • LBCs, Flutters (IC)
  • Snow Angels, Freddie Mercurys (IC)


  • Convergence tomorrow! PreRuck at 5:00.  Aforementioned @Lambi is meeting @Sushi for a prerun at 6:30 at Starbucks.
  • Praise for @Sammy‘s sister and newborn, Prayers for brother-in-law.
  • Praise for Greg Gibbons’ progress
  • Run with Whisper for the GHS 5K (or half marathon if you’re froggy)

Ye Ol’ Moleskin

  • It should be noted that @Tedediah, the top tier athlete Pitchfork boasts especially now that @Hooch has hibernated for the winter, took the ONLY JayVee battle ropes on the course this morning.  #quasisack
  • One reason I wore a suit and tie this morning is because that suit has been sitting in my closet for close to a year now.  This is my sad clown suit.  I don’t want to ever wear it again… at least not to do adult things.  This morning was the most fun I’ve ever had in that suit, and I was killing myself trying to smoke the PAX.
  • Another reason I felt this Q was important was to remind the men of F3 to nurture their most important relationship on this earth.  Not just Sunday, some fictitious holiday made up by Hallmark to sell greeting cards, but everyday to strengthen our families and in turn strengthen our community.

Pleasure sharing the gloom with you this morning!
