Based on the mumblechatter during a previous beatdown, YHC thought it would be a good idea to bring the heat to a pre-Christmas beatdown without the unending Christmas music that seems to start in September and finishes at 12:59:59 on Christmas Day (even though the Christmas Season officially ends on January 6 - Epiphany). Thus, with the weather still in the 20's, the heat was going to have to come from the beatdown itself (and possibly some 80's funk from the Minneapolis scene). With a veteran crew, abridged disclaimer was given, and off we went.


10 each of SSH's, Weedpickers, Hillbillies, Moroccan Nightclubs, Michael Phelps. Mosey around the parking lot to the area of the lot in front of the theatre:

The Thang:

  1. Ring of Fire Burpees with High Knees while waiting for the next dude to tell everyone "DOWN" - so 19 Burpees. Mosey over to the wall by the abandoned hibachi restaurant.
  2. 7's with step ups and jump squats, bear crawls across the parking lot. Mosey to the back parking lot by the Ari (HA!) steakhouse.
  3. 11's with Mike Tysons and Flying Monkeys. Mode of travel out = Lunge Walks, Mode of travel back = Bernie Sanders. Mosey to the covered walkway.
  4. Bring Sally up/down with hand release mercans up, hold a Superman when down. Mosey to the flag
  5. Bloody Mary - 15 supermen, 15 pickle pounders, hold 10 count low plank, 15 side planks (each side), 15 gas pumpers, 15 LBC's, 15 flutter kicks....and that WAS TIME!


  1. Blood Drive 12/22. Check SLACK for details
  2. Prayers for travel mercies for those en route to / from home during the holidays, prayers for peace in our homes and the world

Naked-Man Moleskin:

It was great to lead once again at The Hooch. Thanks for giving me the opportunity, and well done on the effort, men!
