  • When: 01/01/2018
  • The PAX: Twister, Mad Hatter, Osteen, Outhouse, Tinkle, McDreamy (respect), Snookie, Feud, PUD, Xenu (respect), Bigbird, Snuffy (respect), LIFO, Pyro

14 Mighty Men of the Jax Pax kicking off the New Year right for a convergence beatdown at GENESIS where the MANatee was unveiled.

Conditions: not so Florida 37 degree chill with a steady drizzle of freezing rain

A few donned multiple layers to resemble Randy from The Christmas Story but it was Osteen who wins the Man-Up Award rolling up ready for the beach … just missing the sunglasses brah!

No FNGs so the usual particulars were given … and a quick warm-up under the open pavilion where oddly it was actually warmer. Ugh I think the cold was setting in and already playing Jedi mind tricks on us.


*18 SSH IC

*18 Mountain Climbers IC

*10 Prisoner Squats IC

*10 Merkins IC

*10 Don Quixote IC

YHC reminded the pax of our CORE VALUE for the month — We are prepared for the shit to come. We compete against ourselves to vanquish weakness, doubt, mediocrity, and temporary comfort, readying ourselves for life’s coming battles. “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” Abraham Lincoln


Quick instructions for the MANatee. AMRAP – Repeat the circuit/stations below (yes McDreamy more than just the one time). Done for 40 minutes. Winner is the person who gets the furthest. Sucks to suck. Pays to be the winner.

Station #1: Pavilion – 20 Dips, 20 Derkins, then run to the next station.

Station #2: Playgroud – 10 Pull Ups, 20 Werkins, then run to the next station.

Station #3: Basketball Court – Suicides with 20 Monkey Humpers on the return baseline, then run to the next station.

Station #4: Storage Building – Duck Walk around the entire building, then People’s Chair with 20 Overhead Claps, then run to the next station.

Station #5: Small Pavilion – 20 BB Sit Ups, 20 WW1 Sit Ups, then run to the next station.

Created by BigBird (circa 2015)

CONGRATS to BigBird for winning the MANatee Debut at GENESIS. Also big props to Osteen for coming in 2nd. Tclaps for some first timers popping their cherry – Twister, Mat Hatter, Outhouse, Osteen and McDreamy.


Prayers for Snookie on starting his new job this week, some Badland brothers on IR, etc.

Great work men. I’ll send over the results to Xenu so he can do his Star Trek spreadsheet stuff.

Always an honor!!!

Peace out — PYRO
