IRON SHARPENS IRON
Temperature was in the lower 60s and the AO was soggy.
COP – Men reminded of opportunity to do alternative work out beginning now or at any time during the beat down. All men encouraged to remove watches. Line up on sidewalk by size. Men divided into groups of three of similar size for remainder of BC. Burpee Battle starting at nine and increasing by one each minute. When you can no longer complete the required number with proper form, you are out. Hand Release Merkins.
THANG – Men encouraged to work hard to make their partners better men. Three wiffle balls in a line. One placed 5 yards away from middle ball and one 20 yards away from middle ball. Timer set at I minute with 10 second reset between each round. All three men start at middle ball. Man number 3 (crawler) Bear crawls to ball 20 yards away and back. Man number 2 (aggressor) is on his knees facing the ball 5 yards away. Man number 1 (defender) gets on his knees chest to chest with man number 2. Man number 2 has 1 minute to reach the ball 5 yards away while man number 1 attempts to stop him. If man number 2 reaches the ball, he is rewarded by not having to complete the Bear Crawl for that round. Alarm sounds after one minute, rotate to next numerical position. Rinse and Repeat. Final round pitted stronger of the three men against the other 2. Safety brief and demonstration provided before commencement. Intent is to “lock up” with your partner and man handle him as you impose your will upon him or deny him access to advance to the ball. No hitting, slapping, choking, standing, wrestling holds etc. Manhandle your partner and make him stronger.
Mary – Flutter kicks x 20, Seal Jacks x 20
Count, Name, Announce, Pledge, Pray
Moleskin – The numbers were up as 16 GROWN MEN posted to see what was in store. No men chose the alternate workout, but some did provide odd looks as the Q encouraged them to remove their watches. When the Pax are unaware of what the beat down entails and assign the Q to be teamed up with Old Flame and Stalker for this event, you seriously consider an audible from the very beginning. So yeah, thanks to the unknowing Pax, the Q got his backside drug all over the AO by Old Flame and Stalker; this included losing a shoe mid workout. Burpee Battle was great way to get loose for the main event. Cheat yourself today and you may find yourself in some very compromising positions. This was a total body beat down as men tried to impose their will upon each other. Mumble chatter died down after a few rounds, but it seems the scrapes were plentiful. Thanks to all of the men for embracing their brothers and the workout for the purpose for which it was intended; make your brother better. IRON SHARPENS IRON!
