It was a perfect morning to push the rock and with it being the holiday season YHC wanted to make things a little festive. 22 HIMs filled the sidewalk at The Fighting Yank so when time came, this is what happened.


Pledge of Allegiance

Warmup: Goofballs, Don Quixote, Lego Picker Uppers (slight naming variation of the old standby)

YHC dipped into the luxury sedan to pick up the tunes. And we’re off.

Mosey over to the road beside the railroad tracks for a Route 66 of Jingle Balls. Look it up, great exercise for high reps, especially when bear crawling from parking line to parking line, which we did.

Wait for the 6 to arrive and then mosey down to the Pit for the Thang.

12 Days of Christmas with Sargento’s Christmas playlist. It was lit!

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me… Singing was required and the PAX obliged.

1 Burpee (stupid burpees)

2 Sumo Squats

3 WWI Sit Ups

4 Merkins (from the president of the MHC no less)

5 Bobby Hurleys

6 V-Ups

7 CDDs

8 Squats

9 LBCs

10 Dips (on flat ground, oh well…)

11 Lunges each leg

12 Shoulder Taps each shoulder

This was a great routine with plenty of mumblechatter but it didn’t take too awfully long so we moseyed up the road to the shopping district of Belmont.

At YHC’s direction the PAX would stop and do 10 Derkins and 10 Monkey Humpers. We did this up the sidewalk, crossed over and back down for a total of 6 stops.

Mosey back to the Pit for another round of the 12 Days of Christmas except in reverse. It was fun and the PAX got it’s money’s worth for sure!

Fellowship mosey up to the parking lot outside of the jailhouse for a few minutes of Mary and we’re done! Way to push men, Merry Christmas!!!
