Best of Both Worlds Part 2!

Best of Both Worlds Part 2!

Workout Date:



Rousey (Respect and 3F CoQ)


Shoeless (2x Respect), Ringo, (2x Respect), Brandon (Respect), Methane (Respect), Pole Dancer, Gable, Mole Man (2.0), Kiwi (2x Respect and SN AOQ), and QIC

The Thang:

Conditions: High 60s, intermittent rain, humidity was full gross, and of course dark at 0500 when YHC rolled into the Timberlake Baptist Church (TLBC) campus.

YHC / QIC’s second Q at the “southside” #Sharknado (SN) launched by our stalwart Kiwi! SN provides a place (much like Catapult) for guys to workout smart grinding through the “good” pain, but having the freedom to dial it back to avoid “bad” pain during the beatdowns. We have a lot of Respect brothers at this AO – lol!

YHC used the #weinke from his recent Q at #BombSquad where he merged Pikachu’s Blocks with Sunshine’s Deck of Death (both famous and feared WODs). The best of both worlds as the great philosophers Van Halen would say! 8 other Pax joined minutes before “go time”. Pre-workout #mumblechatter ensued, 1-minute warning, welcome to F3, mission, disclaimer, and then we got after it.

Warm Up:  An assortment of usual F3 GrandStrand (F3GS) exercises IC. Go grab a block from the #coupon pile and report to the TLBC church overhang to keep Pax somewhat dry.

Deck O’ Death With Blocks WOD

*Pax took turns picking 3 cards whereby the exercises were done in groups of 3s; RnR until deck was completed.

  1. Hearts: Hand Release Merkins; using only cards 2 – 10.
  2. Diamonds: Derkin; ” “.
  3. Clubs: Curls; ” “.
  4. Spades: Swings w/ block: ” “.
  5. All picture cards: 10 Bent over Rows.
  6. All Aces: 5 Thrusters.
  7. Joker 1: 25 4-ct. Flutterkicks with overhead block hold or press.
  8. Joker 2: 20 Blockees.

Deck with the exception of the 2nd Joker was completed at 0548. Blockees took a bit longer to complete – lol!

QIC then led Pax through a stretch / cool down.


COR – 9
Praise report/Prayer requests: Spoken and unspoken. Shoeless’s sister.

Announcements: Freed to Bleed date in a few weeks. Stay tuned on F3GS Slack for details!

NMMS 1: Strong work today! Blocks combined with the beneficial “muscle confusion” that a DoD brings was challenging. #Nevermissamonday and we didn’t!

NMMS 2: Joker 2 aka 20 Blockees were the #crowdpleasers putting the exclamation mark on the beatdown, but the SN Pax did every last rep.!

NMMS 3: The 2 bowls (1 red and 1 blue) symbolized the “taking of the daily red pill over the blue” as cards were moved from one bowl to the other.

Honor to Q!
