Backblast: Bus Benches 12.7.2020

11 PAX converged on the gloom to discover the first iteration of the 12 Days of Christmas. Inspired by the PAX of High Point, YHC thought it mathematically appropriate to not wait until we were within 12 days to Christmas.


  • Short mosey around the block
  • SSH X 15 IC
  • Sun God’s X 10 IC & Unwind
  • Dean Vigoda’s X 10
  • Seam Rippers


Each PAX was handed the following with minimal instruction:

Ladder up repeating all the previous steps until you reach 12.  If you happen to get to that point and need more to do, start to ladder down from 12. 

  1. Run (pick your distance – a stop sign is a good marker)
  2. Burpees
  3. LBC’s – IC or In Cadence
  4. Apollo Ono’s – jump step to the side
  5. Irkins
  6. Squats
  7. WWI’s
  8. Lt. Dan’s
  9. Dips – IC
  10. Thigh Masters – Each Leg
  11. Inverted Rows
  12. Bear Crawl Parking Lot

No one completed the bear crawl, but something tells me that may have been intentional. Well done on the hard work!

PAX: Monet, Kay, Dean, Mulligan, Epstein, Gilmore, Special, Boone’s Farm, Sprinkler, Crankbait, and YHC

YHC led us out – check out 3rd F for a challenge

Duvet out – thank you for making me a better leader by sharpening my skills in the gloom, one Q at a time.
