YHC has enjoyed heavy workout ever since we started doing them at Sojourn. I missed them for a while but was excited when the Vets and County decided to bring them back. I Q’ed a Heavy a couple weeks back at Vets and when the opportunity came to lead one at the County I jumped on it.
I wanted to bring back something from the past that was sure to be a test for each guy. I can count on 1… maybe 2 hands the workouts I never want to do again. However, it is these workouts that challenge us and make us stronger, so I decided to combine two of those workouts for this heavy workout.
The F3 IronPax challenge happened last fall and these were some of the toughest workouts I have done since joining. Just ask Kilo, he was only able to complete 1 of them. So I decided to combine the first two workouts to create something new but hopefully just as difficult.
Here are the workouts for reference. Week 1 was used for the rounds and rep count:
Week 2 was used for heavy exercises:
Once I came up with this idea I was excited to get after it!
PAX: Crock Pot, Grizzly, Bulletin, Flo Jo, Alexa, Jolly Rancher, Cochran, Kimble, Valdez, White Claw (FNG), McAfee (QIC)

Shortly after the first group of guys finished the last round YHC called an audible and had the remaining guys finished the exercise they were on and begin returning coupons.
