Archives: Southern DR Beatdown at The Bean

Date: Tuesday February 18, 2020

QIC: f3popper





Two DR PAX – Popper from F3 Alpha and Clover from F3 Charlotte – posted on a breezy Tuesday winter morning at #TheBean. YHC heard from local sources on Monday that there would be a DR Q this fine morning. Little did YHC know, that DR Q would be me. With just the two PAX posting and no other DR Q in sight, YHC issued the standard disclaimer, reached back in memory to quickly recollect some old tricks from previous Q’s at the Bean, and off we went.


20 Side Straddle Hops

10 Weed Pickers

10 Wind mills

12 Hillbillies

20 Arm Circles, forward & backward

The Thang

Grand tour with pain stations (Randolph -> Lakeshore -> Monroe -> Michigan). Clover asked for more pain stations and less running, so YHC was happy to oblige. Pain stations:

  1. Mosey to just north of the Bean, on benches surrounding wide walkway: Alternate Erkins and Derkins, moving from bench to bench, incrementing count by two’s each time. Work from 2x at first bench up to 16x, then back down to 2x. YHC miscounted benches, but some were still buried in dirty snow, so the math kind of all worked out.
  2. Mosey east to Cancer Survivor’s Garden: 11’s w/star jumps and donkey kicks, moseying between the two massive pillars.
  3. Mosey south to corner of Lakeshore and Monroe: 3 sets of 20 supine rows on the bike racks and 20 squats apiece.
  4. Mosey west almost to Michigan Avenue: 2 sets of 20 dips and 20 Carolina dry docks.


Asheville Abs: 4 sets of 10 4-count LBC’s IC, alternating through legs in butterfly position, to BBS position, to half-up position, to full-up position. Repeat in reverse order with 4 sets of 10 4-count LBC’s with opposite elbow-to-knee (E2K) motion.

Flutter kicks


Prayers for two PAX both DR, for family back home, for solid God-honoring work weeks and safe returns home.

F3Chicago’s #TheBean is an incredible AO. It is YHC’s pleasure to Q here, even when it’s unexpected. What’s even better is a planned Q, which is what is in store for Thursday when YHC will Q again, this time on the official schedule. If you post, you’re in for a treat: a replay of a memorable beatdown the regular PAX of #TheHooch AO in F3Alpha were still sore from at the next workout two days later. Potential local Chicago FNG Thursday; let’s post to give him a freezing F3Chicago welcome.
