With the popularity of recent cover songs like Fast Car and Wagon Wheel, YHC wanted to try a little game of Cover Song Trivia. With the thought of Shazam being in attendance, I had to be clever on how to make things not so easy for him. 5:30am struck and 12 PAX set off for the beatdown while 2 runners hit the road.


Normal warmup routine

The Thang:

Count off 1, 2, 1, 2, etc.  1’s grab a coupon and meet over in the pool parking lot next to YHC’s car.

Now that we were divided into 2 teams, rules of the game were explained. YHC would play a cover song, each team would try to guess the original artist and name of the song. The kicker is that this part was only for the tiebreaker. The thing that mattered was the year of the original. The team with the closest answer was the “winner” for that round and so they got an easier exercise whilst the “loser” got a hard exercise like burpees or overhead press with coupon, etc.  AMRAP for 1 minute, then take a lap and start all over. After about 10 songs, YHC cut out the talking and the laps and forced the PAX to do the loser version of each to ensure we all got our sweat on.

The playlist consisted of lots of my favorite covers or even favorite artists, or sometimes both.
