The Thang:

Tractor Tire Relay

YHC split the 6 of us into two teams. We had two of our tractor tires in a readied position by the front door of The Rock. The movement went like this:

Team A and B lined up in front of the two tractor tires. Each team would send a Pax up to flip the tire five times out and five times back while the remaining 4 Pax completed 20 reps of Pax Choice exercises. Every Pax took turns stepping into vocal command and kept the exercises rolling until each man had a turn on the tires. It was a great relay race and a photo finish.

We switched sides due to the variance in tire sizes and rinsed and repeated.

We switched, yet again for a 3rd lap of the relay race.

Mosey over to the back of YHC’s gas wagon to retrieve some kettlebells. Each man received a coupon.

Team Log “Air Duct” Carry

The two teams continued to develop and display teamwork as each group of three men shouldered a 10-foot section of metal ductwork (24″ in diameter if you want to keep score).

The large object was in itself less about the weight and more about the cooperation to carry your coupon individually and the log in a cooperative manner. Each team took three laps around the parking lot while stopping to perform 300 hundred squats in unison under the log. Great teamwork and synchronization were achieved.


Mosey back to the shovel-flag and lineup in a circle. 

Pax performed alpine skiers in tempo during a elongated set of up-downs. YHC continued the movements by offering variations of SSH and high skips through out the 4 minutes of up-downs.

We polished off the beatdown with 22 Merkins in honor of the unncessary and untimely death of our veterans.
