This beatdown was heavily influenced by Quaker’s Muscle Beach. YHC  decided to bring out the kettlebells & even the club bell for this one.

The Beach Boys continued to play as the Pax entered Monkee Beach. We paired up & due to odd numbers YHC was left solo until Head Gear& Jingles took me in.

The Thang: 

Monkee beach was set up into 8 stations of awesomeness. Partner 1 completes their choice of 1 of the 2 exercises posted in the station AMRAP, while Partner 2 runs the perimeter of the parking lot.

YHC to bring all the iron toys out the garage & share them with the Pax on their trip to Monkee Beach. This beatdown was not meant to be easy but the HIM crushed it.

Bubbles- showed that he was coolest guy in Horry County because he still hasn’t worn pants this year.

Varsity-was a sight for sore eyes & continued his streak of workout dominance.

Flash-did what Flash does & ran past the Pax while maintaining a glorious head of hair.

Jingles-was battling a heal injury & nobody noticed but him. The guy doesn’t slow down RESPECT.

Billboard-Tore through Monkee Beach much like I’m sure he ravaged South Padre in late 80’s.

Turn & Cough-Showed up & didnt miss a beat. I think he may be trying to find a club bell to buy.

OneCall-Smashed this workout & help YHC overcome his California public school education & espoused his mastery of the 3 count.

Weedeater-Is always a beast & makes me wonder what could’ve been if I was born with superior genetics.

Boom Boom-Is back at it & showed true grit today.

Head Gear-Owned this workout from open to close & set the standard with his perfect form.

After the PAX made it through 1.5 times we moseyed back to the parking lot as The Monkees played in the distance.
