16 strong gathered at No Toll to celebrate the greatest movie that was ever released on October 25, 1985.
Here’s how it went down:
Mosey to basketball courts for Marty McFly layups. Remember the sweet Nike high-tops he had?

25 – Doc Brown Great Squats
20 – Van Halen Guitar Kicks (10 each side)
20 – Hoverboard squats (10 each leg)
Mosey to tower for Clock Tower Merk & Burp. In each of 4 different clock positions (12/3/6/9) we paid respect to the time the Hill Valley clock tower was struck by lightening. 10 Merkins and 4 burpees at each clock position. Lap around town square between each set.
12:00 – 10 stagger merkins – right hand high. 4 burpees. lap around town square.
3:00 – 10 stagger merkins – right hand wide. 4 burpees. lap around town square.

9:00 -10 stagger merkins – left hand wide. 4 burpees. lap around town square.
Mosey to field for Tunnel of Love. Pax downward dogs and tunnel of love commences. All while listening to Huey Lewis and the News – Power of Love.
Mosey to Pavilion for Time Machine. Exercise to the dates Marty/Doc traveled during movies 1-2.

10/26/85 – carolina dry docks, 180 jumps, LBCs
10/21/15 – 2 count dips, jump tucks, WW1 situps
Mosey to near field and circle up for 1.21 GW of electricity. 1 set of 21 burpees.
– 20 Rosalitas
– 45 seconds (ish) of Flux Capacitors
– 20 Earth Angels
Back to SF.
Strong turnout for a tribute to Back to the Future. YHC appreciates sticking with some of the arbitrary exercises during COP to get to the meat of the themed workout.
Kudos to Lockjaw who knew it was 10:04PM when the Hill Valley clock tower was struck by lightning. I would have been concerned except he mentioned he just watched the movie last night.
The tunnel of love to the Power of Love was a real crown pleaser. EF Hutton disclaimed he didn’t realize how much he loved Huey Lewis & the News. He mentioned that he was going to download on itunes and put it on repeat for the rest of the day.
The time machine was interesting in that YHC had to figure out an exercise to do 85 times. I went with 85 single count LBCs and hoped it was a crowd pleaser. Much mumble-chatter and grumbling ensued. Mission accomplished?
Props to Viral who corrected Bleeder on the exact amount of electricity in a bolt of lightning. One-point-twenty-one jigga-watts was the correct answer.
I think I heard Shooter singing Earth Angel during 6MOM. Perhaps he saw a shooting star as well. TClaps to BT for bringing the pain to the Flux Capacitor.
