Conditions Report:
This Thanksgiving week Beatdown at Anchor started with a chilly 51% degrees as YHC arrived at the park, ready to plank the shovel flag beneath the splendid sunrise at 7 am!

Warm-up Highlights:
1. SSH – 15 IC
2. LBAC Fwd & Bkwd (15 each)
3. Don Quixote – 15
4. Reachers – 15
5. A festive jog around the park for a quarter-mile.

Today’s Festive Feast of Exercises:
1. Death Star (Modified) – Bear crawl from pole to pole, performing 30 merkins at each. A total of 150 merkins served up in rounds, sprinkled with mercy halfway through.
2. Crowd Pleaser – A pyramid of Merkins and Groiners for the regular men, starting from 1:1 and building up to 6:6, and back down.
3. Calf Raises – 20 servings
4. Copperhead Squats – 20 (3 count down, hold for 3, then 3 count up)
5. Step Ups – 20 each leg
6. Irkins – 3 sets of 20
7. Shoulder Taps – 20
8. Jog around the park back to the flag for a dash of cardio.
9. Sumo Squats – 3 sets of 15 reps
10. Burpees – 3 sets of 15 reps (a side dish we all love to hate)
11. Shoulder Taps (in plank position) – 3 sets of 20 taps (10 each shoulder)
12. American Hammers – 3 sets of 20 reps (10 each side)
13. Another jog of 5 poles, keeping things lively.
14. Finished the 2nd half of the “Death Star” – 30 merkins at each pole, with a twist of lunge walking in between. Another 150 merkins served.
15. Wrapped up with 5 minutes of Mary, where everyone picked an Ab exercise, except for Shock who opted for squats, and Gecko who remained loyal to burpee-free zones.

Notable Attendees:
– Toxic, ever-entertaining. A few James Bond references, nothing about Viet Nam this morning. There was Botox conversation.
– Luger, pondering YHC’s identity, perhaps a side effect of tight pants discomfort.
– Shock, offering occasional wisdom as the site Q.
– Bernie, perpetually getting after it.
– Lifo, working hard and wisely avoiding excessive running per doctor’s orders.
– Gecko, demoralized as he didn’t have an opportunity to throw in 3 more burpees.

In summary, a delightful and calorie-burning workout with entertaining moments courtesy of Toxic, tight pants musings from Luger, a consensus from all that the Deathstar if completed as intended would have sucked and a well-earned break via the Crowd Pleaser & assorted exercises.
