You Learn Something New Every Day – Like Wear Gloves For Bear Crawls

AO: The Bridge

When: 10/28/2022

QIC: Dinghy

PAX (2): Potter


Figured today would be a great day to role out a new beatdown AND playlist. It turns out that while we didn’t have the numbers, we had the willing test subject(s), and from the results, it looks like a winner (and by winner, a good slobber knocker). Given the 2 Pax present were well versed of the risks associated, off we went.


10 Weedpickers

14 Willie Mays Hays

10 Hillbillies

10 Moroccan Nightclubs

10 SSH’s

Mosey to the parking lot behind the theatre

The Thang:

  1. 11’s with bear crawls / walk lunges – Hand release mercans paired with monkey humpers, travel across the parking lost via bear crawls  and walk lunges on the return. Mosey to the obstacle courses
  2. Tabata 1 – Combine a pullup with a burpee, AMRAP, for 20 seconds, with 10 second active rest of air chairs (8 rounds)
  3. Tabata 2 – Combine bench dips with jump squats, AMRAP, for 20 seconds, with 10 second active rest  of air chairs. Mosey back to the flag
  4. Fully loaded Bloody Mary – Cycle through sets of 10 of American Hammers, Gas Pumpers, Flutter Kicks, and LBC’s. Each cycle starts with 10 buzzsaws and 10 second hold on low planks, then the individual exercise, then 10 second low plank hold and 10 buzzsaws.


  1. Tomorrow is the Alpha Convergence. 23 Nov is the blood drive.
  2. Prayed for Potter’s daughter and that he can continue to be a loving father, and praises for Dinghy for his daughter’s recent successes.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

It doesn’t matter how many or how few are at a beatdown – what’s most important is the ripple affect of continued fitness acceleration. Today was a day that showed that 2 HIMs can push each other to get better as well as 14 together. It was an honor to lead today!
