12 Days of Pain, a Foxhole Christmas Story

7 PAX arrived excited for the promise of toys early this year, only to be greeted with 12 “toys” of mass destruction and pain induction! Woooooo!

The Thang:

The Warm-Up:

  • 50 Two-Handed Swings x OYO
  • Merkin x 20 IC
  • Prying Squat x 5 IC
  • IW x 20 IC

Kettlebell Ladder:
We began with an admittedly aggressive ladder.  This thing got ugly fast and I decided to cut the last two rounds for the sake of time and so the PAX could actually save some strength for the implements.

  • Swings, Snatches, Cleans, and Racked Squats x 2 (each arm)
  • Swings, Snatches, Cleans, and Racked Squats x 4 (each arm)
  • Swings, Snatches, Cleans, and Racked Squats x 6 (each arm)
  • Swings, Snatches, Cleans, and Racked Squats x 8 (each arm)
  • Swings, Snatches, Cleans, and Racked Squats x 10 (each arm)
  • Swings, Snatches, Cleans, and Racked Squats x 12 (each arm)

The Main Event:
Grab your bells and lets head to the other end of the parking lot.  Once there PAX partnered up with like size bells.

  • P1 – Performs KB exercise, then runs to other side of lot to switch with P2
    • Round 1: 12 Swings (each arm)
    • Round 2: 12 Snatches (each arm)
    • Round 3: 12 Cleans (each arm)
    • Round 4: 12 Racked Squats (each arm)
  • P2 – Completes one of the 12 Days of Pain:
    • Hairburners
    • Battle Rope
    • Forearm Roller
    • 115 Barbell (users choice, clean, press, deadlift, etc)
    • Perfect Pushup
    • 32KG or 80lb Kettlebell Good Mornings
    • Tire Flip
    • Inch Worm w/ 25lb plates
    • Slosh Tube lunges
    • Jump Rope
    • 28KG Kettlebell Two-Handed Swings
    • Suicides

*After the 4 rounds of P1 Kettlebell exercises we moved to a 1 minute per implement cycle to ensure every pain station was visited.

The Moleskine:

‘Twas the night before Foxhole, and all through the PAX minds
were nightmares and visions of Chanel not being kind.

Promises of toys and pain made them aflutter,
only 7 brave PAX would come…who obviously did not know any better.

Voodoo was nestled all snug in his fartsack,
while the brave 7 wrestled slosh tubes and tires while straining their backs.

Feeling tired, worn out and hung to dry
they morphed from men to beasts in the blink of an eye.

Chanel’s toys were brutal that was for sure,
but nothing these brave 7 could not endure.

When time was over they sprang to their sleighs,
fearing when Chanel and those toys would be back another day.

 

It was an honor to lead you men out there today.  Great work by everyone and I hope you enjoyed something a little different!

Thanks for the strong takeout Rock Thrill!

T-claps on the rhyme, Chanel. I’m sorry to miss the beatdown this morning. The fartsack was warm, but not restful. I look forward to seeing the Foxhole PAX next week for Strawberry’s beatdown.
