The Warm-up:

  • 21 SSH IC (Q lost count!)
  • 15 Don Quixotes (Windmills) IC
  • 15 IW IC

The Thang:

YHC decided to celebrate 1 year of F3 with a musical Q, so in keeping with the season, the PAX were subjected to treated to a workout based on the 12 Days of Christmas.  The exercises were performed just like in the song with a short mosey between each “day”:

  1. Stinkin’ Burpee
  2. Double-count Werkins
  3. Belly Busters
  4. Crab Cakes
  5. Sumo Squats
  6. Freddie Mercury
  7. Flutter Kicks
  8. Double-count Merkins
  9. Double-count Lunges
  10. Mexican Squats
  11. Diamond Merkins
  12. Broad-Jump Burpees

The exercises were accompanied by a 41-minute playlist with nothing but “The 12 Days of Christmas” (you’re welcome).  Performers included:

  • Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters
  • Burl Ives
  • Philadelphia Brass Ensemble
  • John Denver and the Muppets
  • Straight No Chaser
  • Perry Como
  • Relient K
  • Bob & Doug McKenzie
  • Jeff Foxworthy (Redneck 12 Days of Christmas)
  • Twisted Sister (Heavy Metal Christmas)
  • Relient K (repeat; to spare the PAX from the Chipmunks)

The 12th day was completed with lots of time to spare, so we went back in time and worked down the pyramid.  As the time began to run out, YHC called an audible, eliminating the moseys and encouraging the PAX to complete as many days as possible OYO.  The playlist wrapped up with 30 seconds to spare.  TClaps to all the PAX for the hard work, and an extra clap to those who got all the way back to Day 1!
