As alluded to on Slack, YHC had some downtime for some trash TV during recovery, and I’m a sucker for a sports competition show (no matter how absurd it is)!
Today’s beatdown was inspired by the Netflix strongman competition Physical:100, in which athletes of various backgrounds compete in a series of simple challenges to decide who is the strongest.
The goal was to test equal parts strength, speed, stamina, and endurance.
Punishment of Atlas: Hold a cinder block over your head for as long as you can. Winner: Devito
Mosey a lap around the track, then
The Plank: Hold a low plank for as long as possible. Winner : Mayhem or Avis, I can’t remember because after 2:30 we went to push ups.
Another lap around the track, then moved to the infield.
Murder Bunny Sprint: Murder Bunny from one end of the football field to the other. Winner: Avis
Mile TimeTrial: Run a mile as fast as possible. Winner: Mayhem
Took our coupons on a walk after this over to the parking deck.
The Punishment of Sisyphus: Remember that tale from Greek Mythology where the guy had to push a rock up a hill for all eternity? PAX loaded their cinder into a wagon. Two Pax would push/pull the wagon all the way to the top of the parking deck, while the 3rd Pax “raced” them to the top (but they had to do 5 burpees at every turn). We did three rounds of this, and the wagon always won. Winner: Wagon full of cinder blocks.
Mosey back to the flag for one final challenge:
The Wings of Icarus: Hang from a beam. Last one still hanging wins. Winner: Avis (not a surprise)
Prayers of safety for Devito’s M during her travels, and Devito’s sanity while she’s away.
