Space Invaders

YHC keeps some notes in his phone when future beatdown ideas strike. Sometimes it’s may be just part of a bd, sometimes something inspires the full thing. Can’t recall why Space Invaders came to mind, but YHC immediate knew that there is a full beatdown there. On a Monday morning, we gave it a try.


YHC was running behind, so we began with a little mosey so the speaker and timer could be setup and started. The loud buzzing every 90 seconds meant nothing at the time. The following were done in cadence:

  • 10 SSH
  • 10 Windmills
  • 10 Air Presses
  • 10 Tempo Squats

Mosey back to the start of the parking lot.

The Thang:

The BD was as follows, each PAX would start on one side. At every tree, they moved across the parking lot like our alien inspiration. Before they moved across, they also fired their “missile.” Also, when the timer went off, they had to “dive bomb” and mosey to the end of the parking lot and then back to where they left off.

  • Round one: Crab lunge movement, burpee missile
  • Round two: Karaoke movement, burpee + squat missile
  • Round three: backward mosey movement, burpee + squat + merkin (totally not a second burpee) missile

With about 4 minutes remaining, we mosey’d back to the start. Everyone did 5 box jumps, 5 dips, 5 BBS on loop until 6:15.
