Snow Fun! – 2.16.21 AO-Mastodon

The weather was a balmy 9 degrees at beatdown time which was a vast improvement over the 0 degrees we have been experiencing recently. We were graced with 6 inches of fresh fallen snow, so YHC knew we had to make the most of it. The pre-blast encouraged all PAX to BYOS(Bring Your Own Sled) and promised we would have some fun at Hoffa this morning. 12 Faithful PAX (Captain Crunch, Gummibear, Beaker, Da Vinci, Katniss, Cookies, Sparrow, Saga, Tortuga, Shiplap, Jolly, Banks) braved the elements to come and indulge YHC in some winter fun!

Warm-O-Rama: The Usual

  • 7x Motivators
  • 15x Tin Soldiers IC

The Thang: Snowy Dora

We all congregated at the bottom of Hoffa and paired up for a little Dora style beatdown. One partner would complete the reps, while the other ran to the top of Hoffa, completed 5 Leg Raises and 5 Jollies, and then sledded back down. YHC added a wrinkle with a sandbag that each PAX carried up and rode down with 1 time. Since it was such a warm morning, YHC thought it would be helpful to remind all the PAX of the beach and warm weather by playing the Beach Boys throughout the beatdown! The Reps:

  • 100 BBS (Big Boi Situps)
  • 200 Burpees
  • 300 Merkins
  • 400 Squats

Overall, it was a tough workout, and it seemed like a lot of fun was had as well. I believe only one group finished all the reps (Shiplap & Gummibear), but everyone else got in some good work along the way.


Thankful for all of these men showing up on a beautiful morning like this. Prayers for those who could not join us today, Davinci’s church, Saga’s M, and Captain Crunch’s work.


The reps were intentionally high today to show us all that once we put our mind to something, stay focused, and slowly chip away at it, we can accomplish anything. Always keep moving forward and getting better and you will surprise yourself with what you are able to accomplish.
