Who is This Santa and Why Does He Bring Such Wonderful Presents?

AO: Bad Apple

When: 08/19/2020

QIC: Woody

PAX (11): @Sprocket @goat @Swamp Donkey @Sparty @norwood @Brutus @Rusty @AC @Ollie @lil’jon @Heidi


After hearing about the last BD done by YHC, the group amplified thinking it would be easy.  Especially after a serious BD from Heidi 48 hours earlier.  The disclaimer is given, and of course pins any and all blame on Rusty once again.


Easing into the workout like granny getting up from the chair…Of course, YHC still gets the laughs from a couple PAX about his counting methods.  But who cares…We’re just getting started.

  • Abe Vigoda x 12
  • Imperial Walkers x12
  • Mountain Climbers x12
  • Flying Nuns x12 (oh yes, they made it into the beatdown)

The Thang:

Music thumping and YHC comes out jumping.

Mosey for a mile…

ROLL THE DICE…2 rounds (modified to 1 round with a 100 yard sprint out and backwards run to start due to number of PAX)

Now that we’re properly ready to go

Santa’s Ladder – 

Run from your starting point around the parking lot and do 10 Burpees. Return to start. Now do 9 Burpees. Continue this running and rep routine going from the 10 to 6 burpees. When you hit the 5-1 count reps, do Merkins instead of Burpees. After the entire 10-1 set is over…

YHC asked Sparty what do you do with a ladder? Sparty being Sparty,  huffing and puffing, and it’s 6am in the morning shouts out whaaat?

Next thing you know, we’re running it back up the ladder…Sets 1-5 Merkins and 6 on will be Burpees.   The proverbial groan emanates from the PAX, with the exception of YHC, who absolutely “loves” to do burpess.  So YHC allows for a challenge to be had…

All PAX will sprint around the parking lot and if anyone can catch Brutus, then he will be responsible for doing the workout while the others can modify.  Let’s just say that as fast as Brutus is, it was like he was shot out of a cannon and I’ve never seen grown men weep in such unison.

All PAX are on the hook for the rest of the ladder.  The run gets modified due to timing, however, and we do some Mary until the 6 is done.



Quick announcement of the upcoming Iron Challenge.

Prayers for our teachers, students, staff.  Prayers for Sprocket and his family.  Prayers for Goat and Swamp Donkey as they race this upcoming weekend, and prayers for our country and ongoing unrest.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

After another solid, sweat soaked workout, 8 PAX head to the local watering hole for hydration of coffee.
