YHC instructed everyone to gather in a circle and grab their ankles in a Monkey Humper fashion. WHAT TAPPS? YHC instructed to everyone that this is going to be a Ring OF Fire event. The first person, YHC, does 10 Monkey Humpers followed by the next person and so on until the circle in complete. This is going to burn with 30 PAX in attendance! Each PAX was asked to name a favorite Xmas song. Soon enough the grumbling began, while others sang out of tune a favorite Xmas song! Half way through the Ring of Fire – members were beginning to groan – hence the name Howling Monkeys!
Pass the sandbags!
YHC had the PAX count off in to 2. All the number 2’s were instructed to gather their sandbag and get back in the circle where they were before during the Howling Monkeys. The object was to have a continued line of passing the sandbags left to right, until the Q yelled STOP! The member who had Qs sandbag got to call out the next exercise. We did a few passing to the right, then we did a few passing to the left! YHC got busted when yelled STOP and had the sandbag being used to call the exercise in his hands .
Pass the sandbags in a straight line and back! Let the race begin!
YHC had the PAX call out 1,2,3 and then line up in a straight line with the number that was called. The object was to have a continued line of passing the sandbags from one member to the next with out stopping up to the end point and back. Who would finish first! The four guys in front had no sandbags to begin with, while the six guys in the back did – when YHC said go we began passing the sandbags from left to right – the person at the end after getting rid of their sandbag had to move to the front of line to keep it in motion. It was a bit confusing at first until everyone got the hang of it. Lots of laughter and great mumble chatter.
After the completion of the race it was time for some MARY, since there was limited time until the beatdown ended!
Today was special since Lamb Chop and Snot Rocket was passing the FLAG to YHC and Canoe to become the new Site-Q’s. I am humbled and honored to serve you men in the gloom! It was also YHC’s 50th Birthday! Thanks Canoe and Snot Rocket for cooking bacon for everyone this morning!
We work out together!
We stay together!
We finish together!
We get stronger together!
