Week 1 IPC presented PAX with a timed event. And the Gloom is in full effect now, with no sun on the horizon at the start.

A tight timeline (45 min) meant the WOR was reduced to PAX carrying coupons over to the cones spaced at a 10-yd distance. PAX lined-up at the start line waiting for, “GO!” And then:

The format of the beatdown was a 45-min routine with a E5MOM timer. When the timer sounded, PAX performed a mode of transportation (MOT) 10-yds out and back. The MOT depended on the round PAX was working.
Each round consisted of 1 exercises to be performed in sets of 10 reps, until a TOTAL of 80 reps (40 each). So, 4 rounds. Proceed to the next round, lather/rinse/repeat. After Rnd3, start over until 45 min!!
Round 1:
Flying Squirrels
WW3 Sit-Ups
MOT: Coupon Lunge Walk
Round 2:
Block-Over Burpees
No-Cheat Merkins
MOT: Murder Bunnies
Round 3:
Thrusters / Jillian Michaels
MOT: Rifle Carry

Inclusive within the beatdown!

YHC forgot to announce: we shall place an order for shirts. Be on the lookout!! We’re trying to avoid the holiday rush and delays!

YHC prayed us out, thanking God for raising us from bed to enjoy the beautiful morning and time with each other, and for loving us unconditionally. Prayers for strength to be better men, husbands, fathers and pillars of the community.
