TheBurn’s BDay Beatdown XLII

AO: Badapple

When: 2024-04-24

QIC: TheBurn

PAX (7): Avis, Cornhole, goat, Spider, The Real Woody, The_OG Zima


B-Day Q is always special bc getting in shape/F3 was a 40th B-Day gift to YHC two trips ago around the sun. YHC has been absent from the Gloom for much of the year due to extenuating circumstances. However, putting a BDay Q on the sheet is a great way to jump back in. Badapple Q's stay booked up for 3-4 months in advance due to the enthusiasm, character, and superior fitness levels of the PAX who operate there. Sometimes a Bday Q is all you are going to get for a few months if you aren't on top of it.


YHC goes longer than normal here. SSH, Abe Bagodas, Weed Pickers, Copperhead Squat, Michael Phelps, Sun Gods, Calf Stretch on wall (can’t neglect the calves)

The Thang:

Coupon Work: RDL’s - 20x Bow Ties - 18x Deep Squat - 16x Figure 8’s - 14x (reverse direction after 7x) Thrusters - 12x Rinse and Repeat 2-3x. PAX took turns leading the count/setting pace for each exercise to keep the group together. Shoutout to The Real Woody for leading our discussion on the dominance of UGA athletics. Went to a Bar: Hit the trail for a nice lil mosey to the pull up bars. Morning Call (5 pullups each while PAX doing merkins NSYNC when not on bars). Rinse and Repeat 2x Merkin Mile/F3 Promotion: Hit the sidewalk alongside Hardscrabble for a Merkin Mile (and to promote F3 to any Sad Clowns riding by). 5 Merkins at every pole, plank for the six at each stop. Mixed in some Air Chair there also. Monkey Humpers at the turnaround point (Great Idea Spider!) 10 Merkins at every other pole on the way back. Barfly Part Deux: Return to pullup bars. Repeat Morning Call 2x with PAX doing Merkins & Lunges. Coupon BOGO: Mosey back to parking lot for 2x more sets of the coupon work.  Dessert: Finished with partner Leg Throwdowns (1 PAX on back, 1 PAX standing. PAX on back grabs ankles of standing partner, lifts legs all the way up, standing partner throws them back down) Each PAX got 20 reps.


A little fuzzy.  Goose and Chalupa. Convergence on 5/4.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Thankful for F3. Good to be back in the Gloom. Thanks OG Zima for the B-Day goodies and all the PAX who reached out while YHC was on extended leave. Leave No Man Behind, Leave No Man Where You Found Him.
