The weather was almost perfect for Round 2 of the PT Test and 27 PAX stepped up and put in some work. In case you missed the PreBlast, here’s what the test consists of:


400m run

100 each – Merkins, LBC’s, Squats, SSH

400m run

75 each – Merkins, LBC’s, Squats, SSH

400m run

50 each – Merkins, LBC’s, Squats, SSH

400m run

25 each – Merkins, LBC’s, Squats, SSH

1600m run

*All reps of each exercise must be completed prior to moving to next exercise and all exercises are to be done in the order listed.


Since the first test was done in July, YHC was anticipating some improvement due to the more favorable conditions and the training that the PAX have been doing over the last 5 months. As always, the men of F3 Gastonia did not disappoint. Some of the big gains were: Tiger -6:19, Sargento -5:37,  Volt and Watts Up from 1 lap remaining to finish the first test to a time just over 36 minutes this time. When we did the test in July, Gavel had just started in F3 and ended up with the final 1600m run remaining when time was called. This time he finished the entire test with a time of 43:30 and all the PAX joined in for his final lap. That’s F3.
