A brisk but humid morning which the temperature read 62 but it felt like 70. (I’ll take this weather over most) YHC was still recovering a bit from the Tunnel2Tower event (and the 10 mile pre-ruck before the event w/ fellow, PAX de loco, Hitchhiker in preparation for the 65miler on January) and decided a low impact and little mosey day suited that PAX best. Block by our sides we set out to get a good ol’ fashion beatdown!


  • Attempted to do low impact SSH (IC)
    • got to 5 and were laughing to hard on the count we looked like we were watching a Richard Simmons VHS…
  • 10 SSH (IC)
  • 10 Tappiddy Tap taps (IC)
  • 15 LBCs (OYO)
  • 10 Mountain Climbers (IC)
  • Should Burners (Apnea’s favorite)
    • 10 Baby arm circle; forward/backwards
    • 10 Overhead Claps
    • 10 Seal Claps

  • Negatives! (the eccentric, or lower movement of the exercise)
    • One PAX at each station doing the negative of each exercise for a 5 count
