Between Two Ferns


A whopping 2 PAX presented themselves at Pole Green Elementary to knock out 110 burpees and a little bit o mary…this is what transpired…

COP:  DQ’s, Arm Circles (both directions), WWII’s, Imperial Walkers…each preceded by 5 burpees

Two-Fer (was going to be a Triple-Check):  Perform x Donkey Kicks, bear crawl 10 yards, perform x Merkins, then run 100 yards, perform 5 burpees…return and repeato.  x = 10, 15, 20, 25, 30.

Jacob’s Ladder (Double-shot):  Run across two b-ball courts.  Perform burpee half way, then at end of other court, return and continue cycle.  Burpees start at 1 and end at 7 (1+1, 2+2, 3+3, etc). 56 burpees total.

“Circle” up:  Perform 4 more burpees to make it an even 110

“Ring” of Fire:  10 Merkins each x 4

Mary:  Flutter kicks, Hello Dolly, Rosalitas, Box Cutters (out and in).


As the “Green Acres” song danced in his head… “Dahling I love you but give me Park Avenue…”, YHC was actually anticipating no participants at this morning’s AO, and thereby dreading having to do 100 burpees on his own.  How great it was to see Phonics arrive.  What was interesting is that Phonics brought a flashlight on the assumption that the Q (Saab) would incorporate a lot of running.  Sadly, that was not an option for the Q but he hopes he otherwise did not disappoint

Phonics was great during the burpee ladder and he easily smoked YHC…in fact that could be applied to everything else he did.

For the second day in a row, YHC got to see a terrific sky full of stars…nice to get out of the big city once in a while.

Announcements:   I’m sure there are some in another backblast somewhere…you should read it.

  1. Sorry to miss Saab. As I awoke to workout, I was informed I needed to take my youngest to an early morning youth group gathering for church. Glad Phonics was there to keep you company

  2. Tough workout today Saab. I felt like I was doing burpees in slow motion as we got closer to 110. Thank you for making the drive. You gave me several good ideas for future Green Acres Qs.
