Track Beast, The Hard Way


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. Here’s what went down:

Mosey down beside the track for COP: SSH, Helicopters, DQ, LBCs. Mosey on track to a 50-yard line for a Track Beast…

Track Beast works the same as any other beast, just with more running. Stations at each corner and 50-yard line, and PAX performs six of the given exercise at each station, completing a lap in the process. Since we were doing it The Hard Way, each exercise compounds on the previous, so that each station on the final lap had:

  • merkins
  • squats
  • WWIIs
  • mountain climbers
  • American hammers
  • burpees

Time was called as PAX worked to finish up this final round – which means the might roar of the Track Beast will be heard again at Heartbreak Ridge. Unfinished business and all that.


Couldn’t think of a better way to start a new school year than taking the Q this morning! YHC is really getting into these intensive 45 minute-long activities that the PAX has to really push to complete! As Fall approaches and the heat and humidity subside a bit, this will be a bit more tenable. But in the meantime, keep the sweat rolling.

Shout out to Loose Goose for staying the course amidst a tight squeeze or two.

  1. Excellent beatdown! Yes, bring ‘er back. I think we’ll fare better if the humidity is somewhere below 99% next time…

  2. Great idea Mr. Holland. I bet that was a tough one in the humidity.

    Great work pax!

    Gitry up!
