8 PAX emerged from the #Fartsack this morning in search of a way to #GetBetter. YHC is a huge Star Wars fan and loves a good trilogy so why not celebrate this Christmas Eve with the third installment of the 12 Days of Christmas workout. Once the proverbial whistle blew at 5:30 AM, the PAX got better as all embarked upon 45 minutes of suck that was designed to keep the PAX moving and help all #GetBetter with the sharpening of some iron.
Conditions – 54 degrees and cloudy (Perfect Burpee Weather)

The workout follows the same patter as the song. First day, just a lap. Second day, 2 dozen merkins and a lap. Third day 3 imperial walkers, 2 dozen merkins, and a lap. So, the counts start to build, especially the merkin/burpee exercises.

- Honored to have Q at #SwampFox this AM. #Hammer PAX will be glad to know that YHC got the order of exercises correct this morning, and #Thunder PAX will be glad to know that YHC kept the singing at a minimum.
- With Burpees and Merkins, PAX did a total of 304 Merkins. Couple that with 1.3 miles of running, as well as some ab work, and we #PushedTheRock this AM.
- #LarryBirds were not in short supply this morning as Sheets, Cesspool, and Fountainhead did their thing.
