Turn up the FUNK – UF 3/15

YHC’s playlist shuffles between agony and despair

YHC has a thing for funk and soul music. So when Sly Stone’s Birthday popped up on the list of “things that happened on March 15”, we had a theme on our hands.

Due to the elements, PAX huddled up in the Church St parking garage as the minute hand ticked towards 5:30. At 5:29 1/2, YHC brought the crowd to order, confirmed no FNGs were in attendance, disclaimed the disclaimer, and off we went on a mosey up the parking deck for…


  • 15 SSH (more to come later)
  • 15/15 Sun Gods
  • 20 Imperial Walkers
  • 15 Windmills
  • 15 String Rippers

With that, we headed down a floor to slightly drier ground and planked up while YHC explained…

The Thang:

To celebrate Mr. Sly and his stone, the PAX grooved to some of his, if not funkiest, then certainly most repetitive, hits. The beatdown went like this:

I Want To Take You Higher (5:12)
SSH during the song
Star Jack when anyone says “Higher” (~53x)

Stand! (3:08)
Goblet Squats during the song
Burpee when anyone says “Stand” (23x)

Soul Clappin II (3:27)
Plank Jacks during the song
Merkin when anyone says “Clap” (21x)

YHC’s playlist ran out of songs a little early, need to pony up for Spotify Premium. No matter though, the beatdown must go on. YHC put some more jams on and PAX partnered up for a little DORA 1-2-3 action:

  • 100 merkins
  • 200 squats
  • 300 LBCs
  • Partner runs to end of parking deck floor and back

Most PAX were on LBCs when time was called. We moseyed to the bottom floor for:


With a full 6 minute time window, PAX were subjected to:

  • 20x Low Slow Flutters
  • 25x WWII sit ups
  • 15x/15x Cindy Crawfords
  • 20x Low Dolleys
  • 10x Pickle Pushers (while Get Up (I Feel Like A Sex Machine) was playing, no less)
  • 15x Dying Cockroach
  • 25x American Hammers

The beatdown appeared to funk the PAX up properly as they seemed a little dazed and confused by the end.


  • CHS workday this weekend
