That Escalated quickly

AO: Firehouse

When: 01/07/2021

PAX: Skynyrd, Lightweight, Lifelock, Suarez, Buckeye, Schneider, Script Kiddie, & Ace Ventura

QIC: Script kiddie

Got there early to setup and decide where to complete the beatdown, yet still missed a few sand bags, thanks to Schneider for finding them.
Everyone rolled in right at 5:30 and as Ace Ventura was getting out his vehicle we started the mosey, and picked him up along the way to the rally point

Warm-O-Rama:

As we moseyed to the rally point the last 100 yards or so we ran in reverse to change up the standard mosey, on to the Warm up

SSHs
Hillbillys
Weed pickers
Windmill
Sun gods
Reverse Sun gods

After that they grabbed a coupon and Cusacked it to the soccer field,

The Thang:

Escalation time
The concept was robbed from another AOs Backblast, sorry cannot remember the AO or PAX that created it, but here is the plan
First PAX picks an exercise we do 3 reps then we run
Second PAX picks an exercise and we all do 3 of the first exercise then 6 of the second exercise, third PAX will pick another exercise and we all do 3 of first exercise, 6 of second, 9 of third, each time doing the previous exercises then adding in another with 3 more reps, that was the plan and here is how it played out
3 merkins
Run
3 merkins, 6 squats
Run
3 merkins, 6 squats, 9 curls(with coupon)
Run
3 merkins, 6 squats, 9 curls(with coupon), 12 Burpees(thanks Schneider)
Run
3 merkins, 6 squats, 9 curls(with coupon), 12 Burpees, 15 Ranger merkins(that was Script kiddies idea)
Run
3 merkins, 6 squats, 9 curls(with coupon), 12 Burpees, 15 Ranger merkins, 18 LBCs
Run
3 merkins, 6 squats, 9 curls(with coupon), 12 Burpees, 15 Ranger merkins, 18 LBCs, 21 SSHs
Run
3 merkins, 6 squats, 9 curls(with coupon), 12 Burpees, 15 Ranger merkins, 18 LBCs, 21 SSHs, 24 forward lunges, to help cut down on run time (Thank you Skynyrd!)
Run
After that we had some time so we had a round of Dora
100 Skull crushers

Round of Mary
Time for 2 rounds of Merkin-ring of fire (5 merkins each)
Then we did 25 American Hammers (a Schneider special)
Closing it out with some SSH

Great job to all the PAX, and you went all in on the exercises, for sure!

COT:

Did the head count and Name-o-rama, gave props to all that showed up 8 is the second most PAX I have seen at Firehouse, hoping to break 10 PAX count soon.
Pray for country with all that is going on in Washington and the division between the political parties
Pray for Skynyrds brother and all that are dealing with Covid
Pray for Schneider and need for new contracts at work.

Asked to see if there were any goals for 2021, not much other then  getting out alive and getting in better shape/loss weight both are good goals. but something to think about for this year.

Prayed and wished everyone a great day/weekend.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Not much to report we all had to head out and plans to get the post beatdown run going again.
