Seal Claps (12 Reps IC)

Overhead Claps (12 Reps IC)

Moroccan Nights (12 Reps IC)

Chinooks (12 Reps IC)

Since we made it all the way through 24 exercises, it was time to give everyone their gift of:

25 Burpees

Some PAX were happy to receive the gift while one or two were not

Belding had a good recommendation that those unhappy with the gift receive 5 additional burpees.

Beatdown complete about 1 minute over.

Great effort by all PAX today and welcome to Vanilla Ice.
