Weather forecast did not look promising for a dry Halloween Q, so last minute modifications were made to take advantage of the shelters in Roswell Park.  As normal, a little pre-beatdown setup was needed for the Halloween theme.  Speaker charged and props in place – let’s get started!


The usual routine

SSH – 13

Windmills – 13

Weed Pickers – 13 (the synchronized clap needs some work)

Mountain Climbers – 13

Arm circles – 20 OYO


The Thang:

Thang 1: Yoga for the Werewolves – Playground shelter

Played the song Werewolves in London by Warren Zevon.  PAX started in downward dog position.  When the chorus had the wolf call, PAX did a transition into upward dog.  Held plank during verses.

Thang 2: Cowbells for the Reaper – Playground shelter

Played the song Don’t Fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult.  Placed 6 Reaper dolls around the playground equipment.  PAX paired up with partners.  Partner A did coupon routine under shelter while Partner B bear crawled to first Reaper, did 3 burpees, then returned to shelter.  When Partner A got back to shelter, they had to play 5 beats on the cowbell in synch with the song.  PAX instructed to channel their inner Will Ferrel.  Partners then switched and continued to next Reaper.

Thang 3: Trick or Treat with Prison Inmate – Pond shelter

PAX moved to the shelter by the pond.  Two boards were posted with routines for Tricks and Treats.  A friendly Prison Inmate was sitting on the a park bench with a bucket of tricks and treats.  Partner A ran around the pond to the Prisoner and reached into the bucket to get the trick or treat.  Partner A returned to the shelter and performed the trick or treat exercise.  Partner B then ran to the Prisoner for the same.
