Headed to Stairs, reviewed list of nine exercise sets, each staring with a letter that spells out BEAST MODE.

Burpees 5x
E2Ks 10x to right, 10x to left
Al Gore w/ overhead clap 30x
Squats 25x
Twinkle Toes 30x (Al Gore calf raises)

Merkins 30x
Outlaws 15x clockwise 15x counterclock
Diamond Merkins 20x
Everests up for final climb

Pax completed the first exercise set listed, ran up stairs, repeated the exercise set at top, ran down, started next exercise set, and followed that pattern until time was called.

Goal: Finish all exercises in Beast, get as far as possible into Mode

Results: Everyone made at least to Beast (half the T). Several Pax made it to Beast Mod, but missed out on the dreaded Everest finisher to complete Mode.

*Thanks to F3SunCoast for the Beast Mode beatdown idea

Big Boy Sit-Ups 15x
American Hammers 10x
