BB – 01.13.22 – Agony @ County – Kitty Litter Q

Had a six-pax (plus one Q) show up. Also a few F3 runners who show up…then gone like the wind. Opening disclosures and off to mosey for a “County-Tour” warm up. Along the way, we made pit-stops for COP (SSH, Grass-grabbers), 10 BOYOS, Turkish Get-Ups, Copperhead Squats, Dips, ‘Merkins, and some other stuff. Main Thang:Continue reading “BB – 01.13.22 – Agony @ County – Kitty Litter Q”

Pre-Blast 01.13.21 – Agony @ The County – Kitty Litter Q

Got a great full-body + cardio + core workout ready for the County Boys. You’ll need coupons in hand by 5:30 sharp, so YHC can demonstrate how little of a professional he really is. And showing up with a good attitude won’t hurt (because YHC gonna give you a “case of the Mondays” on aContinue reading “Pre-Blast 01.13.21 – Agony @ The County – Kitty Litter Q”

BB Abyss – 01.12.22 – Kitty Litter Q

It was a fine morning in the gloom. Just 3 Pax (YHC, Flip Flop, F-Stop) circled up for hearing the “I’m not a pro” intro, then off we went down to the boat ramp. Sidebar: Is there another AO that can do BOYOs and also commission watercraft? Thought not. Anyway, we dropped for 10 BOYOs,Continue reading “BB Abyss – 01.12.22 – Kitty Litter Q”

Pre-Blast 01.12.22 – Escalator @ The Abyss – Kitty Litter Q

This mid-week, Iron-Horse-stat-padding, full-body, soul-crushing workout promises to have you looking at your watch frequently. (…i.e. “I can’t believe it’s only been 14 minutes!”). Your coupon will be your security blanket in the gloom, which I’m told won’t be as gloomy…with downright balmy temperatures. This should be a good one to visit, and a goodContinue reading “Pre-Blast 01.12.22 – Escalator @ The Abyss – Kitty Litter Q”

Pre-Blast 12.13.21-Minuteman@Patriot – Kitty Litter & Ruby Mash-Up

Here’s what’s going down: A mashup dubbed “Ritty Luby” or “Kuby Ritter” or ….well, it’s really not that important. What is important is the work. First, your upper-body will be worked until it feels like your legs got a decent workout…then your legs will receive the Hurt-Implant until you wished we were still working theContinue reading “Pre-Blast 12.13.21-Minuteman@Patriot – Kitty Litter & Ruby Mash-Up”

PB-12.1.21-Escalator @ TheAbyss-KittyLitterQ

Niiiice & Easssy! This won’t be the kind of workout FNGs would need to see, if the goal was to show them a full-throttle inaugural F3 beatdown. In fact, it’ll be somewhat relaxing, pleasant, and soothing. For those looking for a light “active recovery” day (or for those resting up for a weekend endurance event),Continue reading “PB-12.1.21-Escalator @ TheAbyss-KittyLitterQ”

Back Blast – 11.20.21 – Ruiner at The O – Kitty Litter Q

A beautiful morning to sleep in, before a little 0700 blood pumping out at the O-riginal. Thanks to @harrycaray for inviting me out…only my 2nd time at that fine AO, with the fine F3 men who make it right. We got the ball rolling with a little stretching: SSH, XC Skis, Grass-Grabbers, and arm loosening.Continue reading “Back Blast – 11.20.21 – Ruiner at The O – Kitty Litter Q”

Pre-Blast 11.20.21 / 0700 to 0800- The Ruiner @ The O – Kitty Litter = Q

Ahhh, sleeping in feels nice. But not as nice as you’ll feel after a full-body effort at the O. Admit it: You’ve never regretted a workout. This will be no different. Bring a coupon or something heavy, and we’re in the season where a gloves-reminder isn’t really necessary. But bring ’em and let’s rock outContinue reading “Pre-Blast 11.20.21 / 0700 to 0800- The Ruiner @ The O – Kitty Litter = Q”

Pre-Blast 11.10.21 – 5:30a Foundry @ The County – Kitty Litter Q

The good news is that many of us are doing the Chad 1000 @ Vets on Thursday, so this “Heavy” workout will not involve much lower-body stuff (a “recovery day” for legs). Which, of course, means that those abs, pecs, lats, delts, biceps, and whatever else sits north of the belt-line will need to feelContinue reading “Pre-Blast 11.10.21 – 5:30a Foundry @ The County – Kitty Litter Q”


Well, we may have all showed up at the Abyss with forearms looking like praying mantises (praying manti?)…but we left looking rather Popeye-swole. The culprit, turns out, was a simple Thang: Partner Uno started a two-coupon farmer carry whilst the “left behind” partner did a series of 20 ‘Merkins + 20 Ninos Grandes (big boys),Continue reading “BB-11.08.21-Motivator@Abyss-KittyLitterQ”

Pre-Blast Motivator @ The Abyss 11.08.21 – 0500 hrs Kitty Litter Q

Be back at home sipping coffee while other AO Pax are still mid-way through their Thangs! We’ll plan on a bit of coupon work, core strengthening, mosey-fun, and of course “2nd F” mumblechatter to get the lowdown on our brothers’ weekend activities. Grab that FNG who needs to know how to start a week offContinue reading “Pre-Blast Motivator @ The Abyss 11.08.21 – 0500 hrs Kitty Litter Q”

BB 10.30.21 Nest @ County – Kitty Litter Q

Five hardcore Pax proved that deez HIMs don’t have WWW Syndrome (we don’t melt like Wicked Witch West when there’s a little precipitation in the air). Got after it under the portico with some loud tunes and partnering. Somewhat of a modified DORA/AMRAP. Set 1 – one partner farmer-carried coupon whilst “dry” partner did Sadies.Continue reading “BB 10.30.21 Nest @ County – Kitty Litter Q”

BB-10/11/21-Minuteman @ Patriot -KittyLitter Q

Good turnout for the Monday WO, making me optimistic about the Paxs’ momentum going into the rest of the week. We worked as a team, carrying a bloated (55-lb) “golden coupon” (a solid concrete 1970’s-style coffee table leg) and a 45-lb box of –you guessed it– kitty litter up and down Heartbreak Hill. Everyone gotContinue reading “BB-10/11/21-Minuteman @ Patriot -KittyLitter Q”

PB – Minuteman @ The Patriot: 10.11.21 – 0530hrs – Kitty Litter Q

The bad news is that my biceps are a bit sore (over-swole?) from the avalanche of coupon curls over the past couple weeks. The good news is that I plan to take all my frustration out on my core, my legs, and my heart! Join us Monday to start your work-week off RIGHT (i.e. fromContinue reading “PB – Minuteman @ The Patriot: 10.11.21 – 0530hrs – Kitty Litter Q”

BackBlast 10.01.21 – IPC W4 @Abyss

We had five Pax whackin’ back coupon curls, squats, overhead presses, kettle-coupon swings, ‘Merkins, thrusters, Bonnies, and Man-makers. Plus some sprinting and burpees to divide the ridiculous number of reps into sets of 25. All 900 reps (or more) were done in impeccable form, of course, as is the habit of the HIMbyss faithfuls. WellContinue reading “BackBlast 10.01.21 – IPC W4 @Abyss”

Pre-Blast 10.01.21 – IPC Week 4 @ Abyss (Kitty Litter Q) 0500-hrs

This might be your last chance to push yourself in the 2021 IronPax Challenge. 5:00am start! 52:30 is the countdown time (working towards total reps/cycles…not time). That means our warm-up will be: 1 x Side-Straddle-Hop, 1x Grass Grabber, 1 x Toy Soldier (but only right arm to left leg so we can fit it allContinue reading “Pre-Blast 10.01.21 – IPC Week 4 @ Abyss (Kitty Litter Q) 0500-hrs”

BB-9.24.21-Motivator @Abyss-IPC/W3-Kitty Litter Q

Great weather for three battle-hardened Pax. Not sure which was harder, the working out part…or counting the exercises up to 50 total (having to count within reps, having to sprint after two minutes, having to run between thangs, having the EMOM countdown, etc.). But done was gotten. Finished with a very short Mary. G’job men.

BB 9.3.21 – Gladiator @ Abyss

Three HIMs did the work of six. It was Iron-Pax-Challenge morning, so we set some cones down field and cranked the tunes. A bit of SSHs, Grass-Grabbers, M. Phelps, etc…and off to the races. The ‘Merkins and Run segments are self-explanatory, but our little Abyssful slice of Heaven offers the added bonus of a “tilt”.Continue reading “BB 9.3.21 – Gladiator @ Abyss”

PB 9.3.21 – Motivator @Abyss – Uncle Sam & Kitty Litter co-Qs

If you haven’t gotten your Week-Zero warm up for Iron Pax Challenge, this is the one. Starting at 0500-hrs, we’ll get you home before the newspaper hits your box and as the dawn and world awakes. We’ll make up for your lack of proper ‘Merkin Form with all run segments being at a “slight grade”.Continue reading “PB 9.3.21 – Motivator @Abyss – Uncle Sam & Kitty Litter co-Qs”

BB-8.9.21-Motivator @ Abyss – Kitty Litter Q

A beautiful morning full of cheerful Pax (9.5 total with dog)! … at least cheerful for a few minutes. Then we got started with an “Indian Mosey” (or native-Am/indigenous whatever) running down to the boat ramp–in-line w/last-man overtaking the group in succession–as we made it back to the court for… Thang Uno: Your basic Ladder,Continue reading “BB-8.9.21-Motivator @ Abyss – Kitty Litter Q”

BB-7.28.21-Abyss: Kitty Litter Random Q

After casting lots and rolling dice to determine who’d get to Q, six pax were woken up to a horrific looking Winkie stashed in KL’s trunk. So gangly was the workout line-up that we (KL) had to call multiple audibles throughout. In other words, we ALL had to “modify as necessary”. Turns out that kickingContinue reading “BB-7.28.21-Abyss: Kitty Litter Random Q”

Backblast – 7.19.21. Motivator @ The Abyss – Kitty Litter Q

A lively-five Pax showed up at dawn to get stronger today. We started off with some warm-up balancing work, taken straight from the Yoga playbook. Then to inspire all the weekend water to exit our bodies, we jumped right into Thang Uno: 10 Burpees, 15 Coupon Squats, 20 ‘Merkins, 25 Overhead Press (alt. with Skull-Crushers),Continue reading “Backblast – 7.19.21. Motivator @ The Abyss – Kitty Litter Q”

06.25.21 Back-Blast: Kitty Litter Q @ Abyss

Six pax showed up this fine morning. No, I didn’t say we started off with a six-pack this morning…have some respect, even though it might have been acceptable with our “late” start of 0530. In any event, we began with light stretching, then cruised to the bottom of the boat-ramp to begin our nautical theme.Continue reading “06.25.21 Back-Blast: Kitty Litter Q @ Abyss”

Pre-Blast 6.25.21 – Gladiator @ Abyss 0530 hrs. Kitty Litter = Q

The Q/Event Calendar still says “0500”…but we’re sleeping in these days and not gettin’ after it until 0530! Sleeping in like a teenager. Since the Q is just getting back in town, logging 30k-step days in Boston & other parts of MA, we’ll need to bust some blisters and shake off a bit of I-tax.Continue reading “Pre-Blast 6.25.21 – Gladiator @ Abyss 0530 hrs.
