“Breakin'” was a mediocre 1984 film about a struggling jazz dancer who joins up with two break-dancers and together they become a street sensation. It wasn’t that great but for some reason the writers decided they needed to make another (unwanted) film which managed to be worse and it was titled “Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo”

You might notice some parallels with this workout. “Make It Stop” wasn’t a great idea to begin with and when I let the pax know we’d be doing it today at Diesel I could tell by the noises from Penalty Box’s direction that he remembered the original and couldn’t wait for “Make It Stop 2: Electric Boogaloo”

The rules are simple. The Q calls an exercise. You do the exercise – nonstop at a reasonable pace – until someone says “Make It Stop” (or until someone just stops without the verbal plea. The Stopper then has to spend a round with the battle rope while the rest of the pax move on to the next exercise. Repeato

We did a good job of not repeating any exercises and worked our way through coupons, bricks, and non-gear exercises. Everyone was thankful that Rockslide brought his battle rope to spice things up.
