The BackBlast:

Utah weather in October can be waking up to 60 degrees, or as was the case today – below freezing – 30 degrees. We all feel the temptation to stay in the warm FS and avoid the chilly gloom.

So proud to see 10 PAX defeat all the reasons that told them not to come, and show up at Copper Beach for a chilly, dark, beat down.

To be honest, with almost no wind and a high effort workout planned – cold wasn’t much of a factor.

The PAX Headed down the trail that went around the North end of the park and took us toward Pull-Up Playground….


PAX stopped enroute for Clock Merkins (3 Merkins, staying in plank, and turning body to hit each of the 12 hours on a clock face and doing 3 merkins at each stop).

Arriving at Pull-Up Playground to find a little ice on the pull-up bar, but no worries we kept with the plan.

Pull-up Pyramid

  • 2 Pull-ups, 4 Burpees, 6 Merkins
  • 4 Pull-ups, 6 Burpees, 8 Merkins
  • 6 Pull-ups, 8 Burpees, 10 Merkins
  • 4 Pull-ups, 6 Burpees, 8 Merkins
  • 2 Pull-ups, 4 Burpees,  6 Merkins

Cool to see the entire PAX make it through this. We all rallied around the 6 and finished the last Merkins together.

PAX then Moseyed back through the neighborhood, when YHC realized it would be smart to stop and check our CLOCK again.

Another round of Clock Merkins (36 Merkins)!

The PAX then Moseyed back to Copper Beach for…

Deconstructed Burpees:  Squat + Merkin + Groiner (or Froggy) + Bobby Hurley

Pax started with one of each, then move to 2 of each, continuing up ladder to 6 of each.  Realize these can be fun and will have to bring these back

  • TTR will be moving at the first of November to park (Highlands) near Biscotts.  Details to follow from SQ Knope.
  • Encouraged guys to get on the Q sheet. With special focus on November Saturdays – let’s get those covered for Frostbye who is having a baby soon.
  • Prayer Requests: Hollywood and all that is going on in his life; Lockout’s father in law Teryl, and YHC’s Sister Natalie with tough medical diagnosis.
  • Gold Digger shared the success of our clothing drive for the VOA. But the sobering fact that our truck load of goods were fully distributed in just two days. While we are excited to have helped, we know the need is great – can we go even bigger next year. Watch for the opportunity to go down and serve a meal at the shelter.

Always a pleasure to Q an F3 workout. I consider this cold dark morning conquered. This group of HIMs are getting stronger and ready to go serve, lead and love others. It’s such a good thing.
