Moseyed on out to Black Widow from F3 24HOB team’s invitation.

Welcome!! See you next week..
  • Welcome Back Saqagawega or  saQ  the Q is emphasized. He posted for Grizz’s tower of terror last week and made it back out. TCLAPS sir keep it coming. 1 a week meet the guys, signup on twitter, then next thing you will be posting 4-5 times a week and running as a 6 man Ultra team at the BRR.
  • And now for something completely different. BRR season is in high gear, I love it!! Sofa King Elite Baby…We all know the standard Metro workout during BRR season 4-5 miles with head bob merkins. Been reading up on ways to mix up the training and HIIT or High Intensity Interval Training keeps coming up. YHC decided to give it go, went with the challenge of 50 seconds on, knowing my beasts would push through & at least the 60% gang would get 30seconds of work vs 12 seconds in a normal tabata session & we would keep 10 seconds not to much recovery. Different and yes YHC open up to some of the best Mumble-Chatter ever.
