Real-life question for you: what says, “90s” more than a sequel? Die Hard 2, Home Alone 2, Toy Story 2, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets…and about 20 of the Land Before Time series. So, the Gladiator produced “Alexa, play all-out 90s on Spotify 2: The Attack of the Cinder” to continue the tradition that the 2nd movie is always better than the first. Same jokes, similar plot, maybe a couple of new twists, and laugh all the way to the bank.

Exhibit A: Cinders instead of little baby rocks.

Confused? Here’s the original.

Another question: does linking back to our own website like that help or hurt SEO? What about mentioning SEO specifically?



Don’t really know what happened in warm up. At one point, YHC’s Garmin told me we were swimming? Here’s how it went. The Q queued up some quality 90s jams to direct us in our BD.

Warmup (Self Esteem-The Offspring)

  • Circle up in the parking lot and…
  • SSH
  • Windmills
  • Moroccan Night Clubs

The Thang:

Grab a Cinder and a partner…mosey to the field.

A song plays, and one partner does a Shuttle (either a standard 300 Yard Mosey or a modified 50 yard Shuttle with Broad jumps or Cinder work) while your partner stays and AMRAPs an exercise. Repeat until the next song.

  • Gin & Juice – Crunchy Frogs. Laid back…
  • What is Love – Overhead press your Cinder while your partner “Chris Kattans” instead of runs. Get it? It’s the 90s version of a Cusack. Hilarious.
  • Jump (Kris Kross) – Bobby Hurleys. In honor of the OG hate-able Puke guard…and ya know…Jump
  • Mambo Number 5 – Curls for the Gurls
  • Baby Got Back – Back Squats w/ Cinder while your partner does a 50-yard Broad Jump Shuttle.
  • Give it Away – Chest Press w/ Cinder
  • I’ll Make Love to You – alternating Monkey Humpers and Pickle Pounders while partner runs. Super weird that the park left the field lights on, but I’m sure it was specifically so the chaperones could keep an eye on this one.
  • Tearin’ up my heart – Rotating Merkins: Regular, Diamonds, Carolina Dry Docks.
  • Tubthumping – Burpee every time you get knocked down. Definitely a fan favorite. Hat tip to Laces for the inspiration for this one.

Mosey back to the flag, dropping off your cinder on the way.


Naturally, the Circle of Life played during the COT.

  • Wicka’s test results and spot in line
  • Half Marathon for Climb Kili on Sunday. Sounds super fun.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Oh man. So much to be grateful for here. I still can’t believe that this group of guys exist. If you had asked me 2 years ago if I would ever have a group like this to work out with, I’d have told you the only way to get that would be paying $180/month for a popular fitness trend. The last year and a half with the Gladiator has been an awesome. Thank you guys for pushing me and putting up with me. SYITG.
