Classic No-ski Beatdown

by | Dec 18, 2018 | Back Blasts

QIC: no-ski
PAX POSTED: no-see-um, haka, grouper, endo, dba, flat tire, frisbee, sanka, apnea, vanellope, drywall

Title inspired by the PAX.

12 PAX for a super foggy gloom beatdown by YHC here at #TheRanch. The weather was in the 50’s, with no air moving at all. YHC was so excited to lead the men, that he forgot that the flag was in his M’s car and not his own. Burpee penalty will be performed prior to next beatdown. We had an FNG today, welcome @Drywall. The disclaimer was given and the men went to work as usual.

** All sound effects from today’s beatdown were provided by: @frisbee aka Wolverine, aka The Walrus. The F3Lutz soundtrack will be released later next year. 🙂

  • Round 2, continue High Knees. PAX yells “Down!”, all PAX go down for x2 Burpees. All the way around for 12 PAX total.

Next up, line up for some Indian Bear Crawl. YHC wanted to test this modified Indian Run. Seems to be a hit!

Turn around and do the same for the second round going back to the starting position.

YHC ended up having a few quick minutes of time, so instead of Mary, we did some sprints to finish off strong. It was something like 5-6 rounds with the last round being a sprint to the BB courts.
