let the bodies hit the tubthumping

AO: Norseman

When: 2024-02-20

QIC: Matlock

PAX (14): Bottom Bunk, Buckshot, Cam's, DeLorean, Dipstick, False Start, Ha-ha, Huffy, Knight Rider, Matlock, Shortcake, Stu, TO, Tumbleweed


On this blessed day, the VQ'iest of days, PAX gathered in the gloom to dispel the apparition of a HYC who had never led.


After a quick mosey to the parking lot, SSH, Weed Picker, Imperial Walkers, and arm circles. YHC cannot remember the Q verbiage to save his life, but plenty of PAX coached him up.

The Thang:

The Pre-Thang: To get the blood pumping, 14 PAX performed Bodies Hit the Floor (i.e., while in a Plank, Donkey Kicks or Merkins at the behest of the lyricist who beckons a man to strike the ground while also counting in whole numerals). The Thang: Counting off into four groups, rotating counterclockwise in the parking lot across four* stations: Round 1:
  • 20 Alternating Side Squats
  • ATMs
  • Bat Wings (four-count)
  • 10 Bay City Sissors (four-count)
Round 2:
  • 20 Burpees
  • 30 Freddie Mercuries & 15 LBCs
  • 20 Lunges (Alpha)
  • 30 Merkins & 15 Carolina Dry Docks
*Overachieving PAX incorporated Curls in the middle of the parking lot if their station finished early. After two rounds, it was time for a musical interlude. Queue Chumbawumba and the Chumbaburpee. PAX expressed more wonder of the lyrical genius as the song wore on. Round 3:
  • An Indian Run with the last PAX performing 10 Air Squats before returning to the group extended from the parking lot to the front of the park and back.
With two minutes remaining, the PAX finished it out with American Hammers and Electric Cars (s/o DeLorean).


  1. Dipstick is on a mission to wear embarrassing outfits at the School of Rock. At least 5 PAX needed each week for him to fulfill his sartorial dreams.
  2. Nirvana hosts a beatdown at the Bound/NLB Saturday. There is talk of Bojangles.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

It was a privilege and an honor to lead the premier AO in  the Alpha!
