As YHC has a long-awaited Red Hot Chili Peppers concert to attend this week, he was inspired to do a themed beatdown. Normal routine for a little pre-beatdown setup with defacto lights and poster boards.
Headed to the football field parking lot.
The usual with disclaimer
10 Mountain Climbers
10 Plan Jacks
20 Forward/Reverse Arm Circles
YHC had 4 stations setup with each corresponding to a RHCP album.
Station 1 (Parking Lot) – Blood Sugar Sex Magik
“Give it Away” – PAX formed a circle with a lifting coupon. Q called out different coupon routines during the verses, and on the chorus “Give it Away” each PAX passed his coupon to the next person in counter-clockwise fashion.
“Suck My Kiss” – PAX lined up on the curb and did Lt. Dan’s across the parking lot. Was concerned about the lyrics with Nutmeg – but he assured us he heard worse.
Station 2 (Parking Lot) – Californication
“Around the World” – PAX worked their way along the curb of the parking with side-to-side hand and feet movement. They bear-crawled across to the opposite curb and around in a loop.
Station 3 (Football Field) – By The Way
“By The Way” and “Can’t Stop” – PAX lined up on the goal line and were instructed to do a number of Burpees then sprint to the corresponding yard line. The additional challenge was that PAX were given the option of eating a Chili Pepper or Red Hot for a themed inspiration on each round.
2 Burpees – 20 yards
4 Burpees – 40 yards
6 Burpees – 60 yards
8 Burpees – 80 yards
10 Burpees – Goal Line
Station 4 (Football Stadium) – Stadium Arcadium
“Tell me Baby” and “Dani California” – PAX partnered-up. Partner A did Dips, while Partner B did high-knees up to the top and back. Rinse and repeat.
Station 5 (Playground) – Some Random RHCP song
Quick round of Roll call on the pull-up bars
Back to the flag – misread the time and almost ended beatdown 3 min early – but quickly reprimanded by Bear and finished with Mary (thanks Bear for keeping me honest).
Prayers for recovery and healing.
As always, enjoyed trying something different with the beatdown.
