On the 12th Day of Christmas My True Love Gave To Me…




9 IW IC, 9 Merkins IC, Calf Stretch L/R, Downward/Upward Dog

The Thang

Inspired by the 12 days of Christmas Song and in the same vein of Billy Madisons but in reverse, this is a running loop and exercise per “day”. Begin with a loop to simulate the “1st day of Christmas”, followed by an exercise with 12 reps as the “gift given by your true love”. This concludes the 1st “verse”. Run the loop again, followed by the new 2nd day exercise x 12 reps plus the 1st day exercise x 12 reps. This concludes 2nd day. Continue with the loop and adding an exercise each time until you’ve completed one loop and exercise combo for each of the 12 days. The “gifts” were as followed:

  1. 1 – BBSU X 12
  2. 2 – AH X 12 IC
  3. 3 – Pistol LBC X 12 (6 each leg)
  4. 4 – LBC X 12
  5. 5 – V UP X 12
  6. 6 – Superman X 12 IC
  7. 7 – Mahktar N’ Diayes X 12 IC (Alternate up arm after 6)
  8. 8 – J Lo X 12 (6 each side)
  9. 9 – Leg Thrusts X 12
  10. 10 – Rev. Plank Leg Kicks X 12 (6 each leg)
  11. 11 – Rev. Plank Knee Ups X 12 (6 each knee)
  12. 12 – Rev. Plank Hold X 12 Count (Each “count” = 2 sec)

In the end this was a terrible idea and it really sucked horribly. I think the PAX who joined me today would agree whole-heartedly. I had a great time today leading both The Floater and Clyent Dinner. I hope the PAX in attendance at these two sites got what they came for or something else that maybe they didn’t know they were going to get but needed in the end. It was a fun challenge and I recommend it to any of you who want to push your limits and get out of your comfort zone.

Everyone pushed as hard as they could and only modified (including YHC) when necessary. It was a privilege to lead today/tonight. Always easy leading leaders. Great job fellas!


3 workouts to choose from this Saturday.

Clean up immediately afterward in down town is still on unless it downpours. YHC will advise if postponed to following Saturday at ~7:30 am on Saturday so check GM around that time.

Turnbuckle took us out!
