HALPHA Day Cakewalk – 5am Beatdown


When: 2024-04-13

QIC: Macbeth

PAX (9): Animal, Birdie, DREAMER, Feathers, Mater, Speedo, Stroller, TURK


It was a cakewalk! Literally! Except for the cake, no that was replaced with exercises.    


Pretty standard, a lot of guys had been there for a few HALPHA Day sessions so most were already warm. We did some SSH, Copper-Head Squats, and some Tempo Merkins in cadence followed by Michael Phelps and Worlds Greatest Stretch OYO.

The Thang:

After a brief warm-up (on which my first speaker died) we moseyed to where I had set up about a dozen exercises in a circle. We spread out and whenever music was playing they had to perform the exercise closest to them and whenever the music stopped the PAX had to move around the circle (I guess it was really an inverse cakewalk, but whatever). We started with a Mosey around, moved to a Bear Crawl, and then did a Crab Walk. I finished off the last 5 or 6 minutes by gathering everyone at the top of the circle and we moved around as a group doing 10 reps of an exercise and then Bear Crawling to the next exercise. (This was where my second speaker died). We almost made it all the way around! Moseyed back to the flag for some brief Mary exercises and that was time!

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Great to exercise with the HIMs! Biggest lesson learned... get a better bluetooth speaker.
