A PAX of 11 came out to Heartbreak Ridge to buy what Mr. Holland was selling; namely, a beatdown to write home about. After the briefest of moseys, the Q dispensed with COP and went straight for the Track Beast. Six laps around the track, stopping at six points along the way, to perform six of each prescribed exercise (merkins, WWIIs, lunges, mt. climbers, American Hammers, burpees). It wasn’t until the 2nd lap, when the PAX learned that with each lap exercises are additive rather than replaced, that Honeydo and friends learned the valuable lesson of always reading the fine…

Certain “regulars” at HBR were sucked into the vortex of their fartsack after watching football last night.  However, for a group of 5 noble warriors, they not only answered the gloom, they owned it.  Here is how it went down: Parking lot tracers COP 25 SSH 15 cherry pickers 10 2x merkins 25 2x LBC 15 crab cakes 15 helicopters Mosey over to the tennis courts, partner up and complete 4 rounds of partner wheel barrows over ½ the tennis court followed by 10 decline merkins Mosey wall for core building Wall sit – 1 minute 25 heels to heaven…

A PAX five strong arrived for the first day of school: “lunch packed up, shoes tied tight, hope I don’t get in a fight…” While this morning’s beatdown was short on obscure trivia, YHC did his best to make up for it in sweat and effort, as we did things The Hard Way.
