Tribute Beatdown: Elvis Presley‘s 45th anniversary of his “supposed” death was August 16. Olivia-Newton John died August 8, 2022. Music for today’s beatdown found here (for a while anyway).
Mosey around the parking lot, with Carioca mixed in.
SSH: 18 of ’em… Elvis had 18 #1 songs.
Plank… We went around the horn and everyone threw out one guess for one of Elvis’s FIRST five #1 songs. As group, we got 4/5. The missing one cost us a five Merkin penalty. The answer:
Heartbreak Hotel (January 56)
Hound Dog (July 56)
Don’t Be Cruel (July 56) **didn’t get this one
Love Me Tender (September 56)
All Shook Up (May 57)
Mosey to the Hill of Dreams
Air Chair… We went around the horn and everyone threw out one guess for one of ONJ’s top hits. As a group, we got 4/5. The missing one cost us a five squat penalty. The answer:
Let’s Get Physical
You’re the One That I Want
On to The Thang
Started with 11s on the Hill of Dreams. In honor of the song “Hound Dog” … Pickle Pounders. In honor of ONJ’s influence on the Jazzercise movement, Imperial Walkers. 10 PPs, run up the hill, 1 alpha IW, run down the hill. 9PPs, 2 IW; 8PPs, 3 IW, etc., until 1PP, 10 IW.
Moseyed to pool rockpile to grab a coupon.
Two groups: Team Elvis and Team Olivia. Each team got a trivia question with an exercise associated with each… Get it right, 15 reps for everyone. Wrong: 25 reps for everyone. Do both exercises then run a half lap around parking lot. Here’s my best recollection … I’m foggy on the order/results.
