QIC: Retainer PAX: Flo Jo, OJ, Pork Chop, Tron, Scuba Steve, Ship Lap, Starchild,Trump, Violet Starchild made it out for my VQ at the O today. Not realizing that the biggest impediment caused by his back injury is getting up and down from the ground, I designed a Q that ruined his morning. Mosey aroundContinue reading “1/17 BB from the O: Sorry about that, Starchild”
Tomorrow’s my VQ at the O. And coincidentally, it’s the anniversary of the start of Desert Storm in 1991, a war that lasted 42 days. So get to the O and plan to do 42 of a lot of stupid things to commemorate the occasion. 0530. The O. SYITG.
Co-QIC: Retainer/Alexa PAX: Captain Infact-O, Chestnut, Meter Maid, Skid, Starchild We were honored this morning to be joined by a Twitter legend. Captain Infact-O is DR and joined the F3 Louisville PAX on a Star Course prep ruck. But we almost lost him at the beginning. CI told us when we started that he hadContinue reading “A Captain Infact-O Snow Ruck Black Op Backblast 1/13/19”
QIC: Retainer PAX: Grinder, Airplane, Meter Maid, Alexa, Jolly Rancher, Wildflower I learned two things this morning. First, don’t eat Mexican on the night before you Q. Second, Airplane is a head locking machine. I told him yesterday that I wanted him to show up this morning. Not only did he roll in before me,Continue reading “12 Days of Christmas at Pleasantville 12/28 BB”
I’ve read Snowday’s and Diablo’s preblasts for Friday morning. Looks tough. Intimidating. Rough. Friday at Pleasantville will be all that and more. Get your butt up and get out to the gloom. Don’t forget your burpee shoes. Pleasantville. 0530. SYITG. Retainer.
QIC: Retainer PAX: Sweettart, Viking, Gypsy, Mr. Kotter, Ladybird (R), Drive Thru (R) I said in my pre blast that we would celebrate Captain Insane-O’s birthday without him on the day after Christmas. CI challenged us to run coupons up to North Posh and back. Challenge partially accepted. Mosey to the egg lawn. COP includedContinue reading “12/26 BB from the Bridge”
CI is Qing the Mutt on the day after Christmas to celebrate his 12/26 birthday. His preblast says he’s Qing Posh, which was just a simple mistake, but the mistake unfortunately saddened all of the AO Poshies when they learned they are stuck with YHC on Boxing Day. In honor of the OG’s birthday, we’llContinue reading “12/26 It’s a Captain Insano Poshmas”
Meet Phyllis and Gladys. P&G have been eating too much and they’re a little overweight. 60 pounds overweight, to be exact. Each. I’ve been anxious to break out the girls at Posh, and Saturday morning’s Co-Q with Jitterbug was the perfect time to do so. Co-QIC: Jitterbug (R) and Retainer PAX: FNG Wally (R),Continue reading “BB 12/22 Fog with Jitterbug, Retainer, Phyllis, and Gladys.”

Posh was unavailable for the official birthday party thanks to Ninoversary, but the County will do. It’s my AO away from AO, and the HIMs out there have become some ofContinue reading “12/18 Loco Birthday Backblast”
QIC: Retainer. PAX: Abacus, Porkchop, Nugget, Milton, Fergie, Hall Monitor (R) (FNG). Nice, crisp morning to celebrate Double Down. We were joined by a FNG from his office, Hall Monitor. Disclaimer, explanation of what we were doing, and off we went. Long mosey to the other side of the park. Circle up. 20 Grass Grabbers,Continue reading “BB 12/4 Doubling Down at Tom Sawyer”
Come out, honor Double Down, and meet our new friends: Tom Sawyer, Aunt Sally, Huckleberry, and Big Jim. Warning: literary characters are actually heavy weights. Meet at the main American flag pole. 0530. SYITG.

QIC: Retainer PAX: Starchild, Alexa, McAfee, Huggies, PK, Gypsy Rucked from South Posh to North Posh to the Water Fountain and back to to South Posh. 4 and a half miles with lots of hills. Heard stories about PK bathroom experiences on the Star Course, McAfee’s unmet bathroom needs this morning, and how Alexa andContinue reading “BB Posh Ruck 12/1”
Posh. Ruck. 0530.
Tough morning tomorrow. Diablo’s got the County. McAfee’s got the Big 4. Deuce and Peroni are leading workouts. All sound pretty rough. And it’s gonna rain. But Posh is going to be no cake walk. You want easy? Go back to bed. You want dry? Stay home. You want hard? Come to Posh.

Mama’s Boy and Alexa came to Posh a few weeks ago for one of my Q’s. I used some stuff inspired by the Full Metal Jacket movie (now on Netflix, you’re welcome). Mama’s Boy asked me* to bring some of those exercises to the Agony. I’m happy to oblige. 0530. County. SYITG. * (correction, heContinue reading “9/20 Agony PB”
Attention: Full Metal Jacket is on Netflix. Much to the chagrin of the Incubator’s Labor Day PAX, yours truly had a chance to watch it last week. And I noticed a certain exercise during the Marines’ basic training: a burpee without a push up. That turns your normal 6-count burpee into a 4-count exercise. IContinue reading “9/3 Incubator Facemelting BB”
Labor Day. O630 to 0730. 60 minutes of Retainer. With a side of Spygate. Holidays aren’t for sleeping in. They’re for getting better. SYITG.
Retainer rolled in from Posh to the Mutt at 5:15 to check out the environs. At 5:16, Old Bay squealed into the parking lot, planted the Rooster Flag, and squealed out again. Old Bay would rather run with Grinder than get a Retainer beat down. I see how it is. Luckily, 20 Pax were upContinue reading “BB from the Rooster 8/21: Jump Ropes and 3,000 Burpees”
No fancy pictures. No gimmicks. Just a lot of running. And couponing. And jumping. And Mary. And better. 5:30. The Mutt. Bring your burpee shoes. SYITG.
Insano posted an article from Men’s Health a few months ago. The gist was how members of the military are trained to maintain physical conditioning if they’re ever captured by the enemy. I thought the good HIMs of the Tank should give the workout a try, and off we went. PAX: Tony Malito, Dealer forContinue reading “Tank 8/15 BB: 1,890 Burpees and 5,400 yards”
Retainer’s coming to the Tank. Found a workout online that’s used by Special Forces in unique situations. What better place to deploy it? 0530. Tank. SYITG.
7 strong North Poshies showed up this morning for an intense cardio beatdown. FNG Cowboy Gypsy Huggies Catfish Launchpad Viking Q Retainer Huggies brought a blue tooth speaker. Put it in my backpack, blared some Bruce Springsteen, and we were off on the Louisville Loop. Half-mile mosey, half-mile Native American flag run to the lowerContinue reading “BB North Posh 7/23 Ouch”
I bought a few items last week that I plan to deploy during my Monday morning Q. The M asked me whether F3 reimburses us for the expense. “Hell yeah,” I said. “With sweat.” Monday morning. North Posh. Come get greater. SYITG.
You will see lots of great BackBlasts this morning that will brag about the strengths and feats of the Louisville PAX. I will do the same. The six strong Carpenter HIMs that showed up in this morning’s gloom made their way through the Board of Pain like real men (even though I might have putContinue reading “BB Boarding at the Carp 7/17/18”
Isaiah 40:29-31 “He gives power to the faint, abundant strength to the weak. Though young men faint and grow weary, and youths stagger and fall, they that hope in the LORD will renew their strength, they will soar on eagles’ wings; They will run and not grow weary, walk and not grow faint.” SYITG
