SSH IC x 20
Frankenstein IC x 10
Salute Planks IC x 20
Superman IC x 10
Peter Parker IC x 10

Mosey to round about
Clock merkins @ 12, 3, 6 and 9- 40 total (This is about when the mumble chatter ensued about YHC not reading the back blast from Tuesday’s beatdown; which YHC admits to, as he was just returning from a 2 day work trip and on about 4 hours sleep; nonetheless, the beatdown would not get easier)
5 jump squats at each line, lunge to next line until you go to all 7 lines- 35 jump squats total

Mosey to Reserve
Irkins, Bear crawls and steps ups in that order -Each PAX would complete 15 Irkins on bridge,reverse bear crawl 10 to 15 yards and back, then complete 15 step ups(each leg); and if the PAX weren’t cold enough already, they would cool off even more with the bear crawls in the thick grass.
(Complete 5 total sets)
Finish with 30 dips
SSH while waiting on all PAX to finish all sets

Indian Run to end of Reserve – 13 PAX today so we had 2 separate groups.

Escalators at light posts (PAX split up to start at opposite ends)
10 Split Jacks (each leg)
20 Merkins
30 Squats
(Back down escalator)
SSH until all PAX finished

Mosey back toward B-ball courts
Stop at nature trail again
Dirkins and Dips – 15x each set
(3 total sets)

Indian Run back to b-ball courts
Back at b-ball courts
Just in time to finish up with 10 burpees

13 PAX an unofficial record for a weekday beatdown; thankful for all the men that came out to push each other and become better men.

Prayers for Frisbee as he continues his journey with joining the service.

Prayers to all men who may have something on their mind and not willing to share.

Great job all men committing to make themselves better in the new year with various challenges.

Our GoRuck Tampa Star Course is fast approaching and less than a month away (02/09); 7 PAX signed up thus far.

Malware VQ this Saturday, 01/12. Everyone be there to support.
