Surprise, Surprise

AO: The Wreck

When: 03/19/2021

QIC: Grease Monkey

PAX (10): Cutie, Juul, Donor, Norm, Scratch-Off, Sell Out, Yao Ming, Switch, Tubbs


For the second day in a row I’ve been reminded by our friendly site Qs that I’m leading a workout. Wish I had known that before heading to Gate City last night.


0530 came around so we moseyed off to the back side of the park toward the school parking lot for a little warmup:

  • SSH
  • Hillbillys
  • Weed Pickers
  • Windmills
  • Sally – probably should have given some explanation but I think the PAX caught on pretty quickly


The Thang:

Now there was some chatter about wall work so who was I too disappoint? And I believe there had also been some commentary that I could be losing naming rights to the Stupid Wall due to my recent streak of fart sacking. Maybe well deserved but we needed to remedy that. So off to GMSW we headed.

5 handstand merkins

15 chicken peckers

15 Dirty hookups

Rinse and Repeat with 7 handstand merkins; then one last round of 10 merkins for good measure. Skipped the peckers and hook ups on the last round.

Then we moseyed along my trail over to the LAX field while we did some planking of all sorts while YHC solidified plans for the rest of the beatdown. Got it.. progressive 4 corners:

10 Big Boys

10 Big Boys / 20 Merkins

10 Big Boys / 20 Merkins / 30 J-Los

10 Big Boys / 20 Merkins / 30 J-Los / 40 Jump Squats

Some more planking and then back down the ladder.

Wrapped up with just enough time to head back to the flag and one round of Supermans.


Shout out to Sell-Out’s son for his work accomplishment – Producer credit in a film documentary.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

I’ve been pretty lazy lately. I’m not exactly sure why. I can blame the weather, COVID, work, beer, etc. I’ve missed more beatdowns in the past three months than I probably have missed in the last 2 years. I can feel it and see it with my body and my stamina. It really sucks. And I miss the brotherhood. I hate showing up and not knowing everyone’s name. Half the fun is giving these FNGs stupid names and who knows how many I’ve missed lately. And they’re probably wondering who the long-haired old dude is that randomly shows up once a month.

But all the while guys have hit me up to get back out there. Sometimes I agreed; sometimes not. Thank you for asking.

Not making any crazy claims (like that time Rooney said he wasn’t going to miss a beatdown all year; lasted 1.5 weeks.) But I need this back in my life. And you guys need more grumpiness in your beatdowns. Here’s to getting back out there.
