Q reviewed reasons for the remixed celebration, Bald Eagle’s 39th Birthday and Less’ 99 Posts of 2021.  Each would be represented in the beatdown:

Exercises would be done in reps of 39 to celebrate Bald Eagle or in reps of 99 to celebrate Less.

Bald Eagle’s Birthday 
would also be celebrated throughout the beatdown by completing 39 Minutes of EMOM Groiners, an exercise from his 2018 Birthday Beatdown.  Instead of beeping every minute, the timer was setup to announce “Happy Birthday Bald Eagle” every minute.  PAX would then stop wherever they were at, shout “Happy Birthday Bald Eagle” and complete one Groiner.

For the beatdown, PAX would complete reps of an exercise, do a mode of travel to get across the AO, and then complete reps of a second exercise at the far end of the parking lot. Wash, rinse, repeat.  The parking lot was 39 yards long, exercises completed were:

– Coupon Curls – 2 sets of 49.5 reps each
– Jump Squats – 2 sets of 49.5 reps each reps
– Cheerleaders – 39 reps
– Starfish Crunches – 39 reps

Modes of travel completed were:

  – Lunges – First rep was with coupon, carrying to far side of parking lot
  – Duck Walk – Last rep was with coupon (mucho sucko), returning coupon to AO
  – Frog Jump
  – Bear Crawl

Once PAX figured out how to do a Groiner, they skipped straight to desparaging Bald Eagle’s Birthday and wondering why we always celebrate birthdays when that PAX isn’t at the beatdown.  No reasons were provided, just MORE GROINERS!!!

PAX circled up and completed Less’ Coupon OHP Ring of Fire to 99 Reps.  PAX held their coupon overhead while waiting for their turn to complete a rep.  If a PAX couldn’t continue holding the coupon overhead or complete a rep, they held plank while the remaining PAX continued completing the balance of the reps.
