Backblast #310 – The Devil is in the Hinds

When a PAX member joined us from F3 Tallahassee, he mentioned a recent workout “The Devil is in the Hinds.” As soon as I heard about it, I signed up for a Thursday Q. You can thank – that HIM – for this epic beatdown

PAX were explained Jocko’s favorite color prior to the workout beginning.

AO | Hospital Hill
BEATDOWN | 0530-0615
WEATHER | 16 Degrees | 70% Humidity

I have the Q for Thursday. We will plan to start at Hospital Hill (typical AO) and run to the underground parking ramp at Calder Plaza. You will need to remove clothing when we arrive, so wear layers (~40 degrees).

The workout is going to suck big hairy donkey dick. I would suggest not coming to this one as you will probably want to kill yourself during and shortly after.

The workout is entitled “The Devil is in the Hinds.”

HC in the thread below…if you dare.

PAX: 7

Hasselhoff, Forrest, Basic Bro, Bald Eagle, Little Bro, Crosswalk, & MAD COW (QIC)

5 Core Principles: Are free of charge, Are open to all men, Are held outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold, Are led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary, End with a Circle of Trust

F3 Bono’s (F3 ENC Crossbones) – Disclaimer: Welcome to F3 Nation. We are a free, peer-led workout, which means that even if you think I look like a stud, I am not a professional. I have no training nor certification. This will be difficult, and I recommend you get in your car and go home. Or you can modify as needed and watch out for your brothers beside you. We leave no man behind, and we leave no man where we found them. Aye?


Run to the Calder Plaza parking ramp
Strip layers


The Devil is in the Hinds – We started by running a lap around the ‘race course’ so that all PAX knew the route. Once everyone was on the same page, we started.

Line up at the start line. Run a lap (1/4 mile?). Last PAX to cross the finish line is out of the race and is required to do the designated exercises (listed below). Rest of the PAX line back up at the start line and run another lap. Last PAX to cross the finish line joins ‘loser’ #1 doing the designated exercises. Continue running laps until there is a ‘winner.’

Designated exercises for the ‘loser’ PAX:

25 SSH
25 Alternating Shoulder Taps
25 Merkins
25 Carolina Dry Docks
25 BBS
25 Squats
25 Burpees

Rinse & Repeat

The winning race was contested by Forrest and MAD COW. Forrest ran the final lap yelling ‘WINNING. WINNING. WINNING.’ at the top of his lungs as MAD COW almost died.

Moleskin – The ‘winners’ didn’t really win. The Q’s watch hit 3.1 miles at the end of the workout.

Well, life is too short, so love the one you got
‘Cause you might get run over or you might get shot
Never start no static I just get it off my chest
Never had to battle with no bulletproof vest
Take a small example, take a tip from me
Take all of your money, give it all to charity

My pleasure gentlemen,
