Weather- epic, only read about online and seen in movies, fog
At 5:12 am, YHC returned from his morning jaunt around the UTC and NBP areas to see a sizable crowd for a Tuesday morning. It’s been approximately 4 months since YHC last led a beatdown so the terminology and order of operations were rehearsed last evening. At precisely 5:15 am, Papa Smurf brought up “things that can’t be unseen” from the Wild Pax thread. Needless to say, YHC abruptly started the beat down by reciting the 5 core principles and leading the group straight into the warm up. He didn’t need Freddy Kroger, Snapshot’s 2.0, to see or hear too much.
The warmup consisted of a NUR from the parking lot to the entrance and back. During the NUR, YHC recited the health benefits of a good solid NUR according the Gridly’s article sent the previous afternoon. Once circled back up, the PAX performed Toy Soldiers, Imperial Walkers, and SSH in cadence. Some leg stretching, arm circles, and agitators were then called for and completed. The time was 5:22am and enough time had been wasted so it was time to head to the base of the tower and start the thang.
YHC provided the plan of action for the day and allowed for options as the “rest” or in between. The plan itself was a simple ladder. Perform exercise 1, than choose to run the base of the tower or not run and do 10 tricep dips on the stairs. Perform exercise 1 and 2, run or dip, repeat.

Most of the PAX, much to Goob’s suprise, elected to run in between sets. Alas, YHC did not, electing to chizzle his arms even more. At the conclusion of the thang, most PAX spattered a sarcastic, almost hateful, “Welcome back Goob” as if to say, we hate you and stay away. Goob knew he had done well.
