This time of year is awesome. Grass starts getting greener again, flowers have started popping out and the weather is perfect for getting out to push yourself to be better. In YHC’s opinion it’s the best season, especially when you can have fun celebrating a day like St. Patrick’s day. This was the theme for today’s beatdown!
YHC was running a little behind this morning and when he arrived the PAX present and accounted for. There were big things planned for the men of the Yank today so after a very short disclaimer and a warmup consisting of just 10 Goofballs IC it was time to get moving. We moseyed about 20 feet for the Pledge of Allegiance then everyone picked up their coupons from the trunk for an extended mosey. Lately YHC has become a fan of having music to keep us pushing so we grabbed the speaker and set out on an extended mosey. The first session included some of my favorite Irish jigs, perfect for keeping your mind off of the mosey.
After about 15 minutes, we arrived at the destination, the new Teeter in Belmont. Nice newly paved parking lot and an empty field and hill for conquering! To give the PAX a chance to catch their breath, we had a round of St. Patrick’s day trivia. So much fun. DJ Jazzy Sargento switched up the music for Ireland’s undisputed kings of Irish music, U2!
A prior count-off gave us 7 strong this morning, so partner up, plus 1 for the St. Patrick’s day version of Dora 123, the over-the-top Sinead 123!
Sinead 123: Partner up, cumulative reps while carrying coupons
- 100 Brickens
- 200 Shoulder Presses
- 300 Squats
A couple more trivia spots and then it’s time for the last routine.
Quarter Pounder with Cheese
- Run 1/4 way across the parking lot, do 25 Merkins, NUR back
- Run 1/2 way across, 50 lunges, NUR back
- Run 3/4 way across, 75 Mountain Climbers, NUR back
- Run all the way across, 100 SSH, NUR back
We were pretty well gassed at this point and still had the 15 minute mosey back so YHC took the idea from Orangeman during the first mosey to leave the coupons behind and get em later. The PAX liked this idea. Smart guy that Orangeman! Let’s mosey.
Upon arrival we had time for about 30 seconds of plank. Time.

It’s a lot of fun leading you men. We have a great group coming out regularly. There are a lot more who’ve come in the past but have gotten out of the routine so call, text, tweet, slack attack or visit a brother you know who needs to come back. They miss us, just need a little encouragement to realize it.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day (he wasn’t Irish)!!!
