11 strong veterans broke the hold this morning and posted on a brisk but pleasant morning to start the backside of their workweek with warm bowl of GUMBO, it tasted something like this:
Long mosey around the perimeter of the AO to the field in the northwest corner for COP, including:
- Imperial Walkers
- Arm Circles
Curb Crawls – mosey to the curb and you know the drill – bear crawl across 1 incline merkin, crawl bear back 2 decline merkins…repeato up to 5 and back down to 1.
Evolution of the Burpee Part I – mosey past the front of the school to the dip bar area and form up for instruction on the Evolution of the Burpee Part I — basically four corners with the following burpee building block exercises leading up to the full Burpee — 10 merkins in corner 1, run to corner 2, 10 2-count mountain climbers, run to corner 3, 10 jump squats (Bobby Hurley style), run to corner 4, 10 Burpees, run back to corner 1 and plank up for the Six.
Plank-o-rama for the Six and then with everyone
2 MOM, including Hello Dollies, Alternating Shoulder Taps and Pickle Pounders
Evolution of the Burpee Part II — same as Part I just 20 of each exercise.
Triple Check – on the blacktop and including: wall sit, Freddie Mercuries, and a Sprint to the fence and backpedal back across the blacktop. 3x
Indigenous People Run around the perimeter back to the Flag
Ring of Fire – in Al Gore, drop for 10 merkins and pop back up to Al Gore then pass to the left.
2 MOM, including American Hammers, Homer to Marge and Rosalitas
COT, Number-rama, Name-a-rama and YHC took us out giving thanks for this group and the ability to get out in the gloom and have some fun while we motivate and push each other and asking for the Sky Q to watch over our brothers who can’t be in the gloom for whatever reason (injury, illness, other) and to bring them back into the gloom ASAP.

Great work today guys. Who knew 35 degrees could feel so pleasant. It was a great morning and pretty simple exercises but great effort by the PAX. What to roll through the Evolution of the Burpee and the Triple Check. Thanks for letting me lead – always a pleasure – and great to get across the river and see some different faces.
Not a ton of mumblechatter (at least that the Q heard) other thank busting Keymaster’s chops for his off the books run.
Pretty sure I caught a few instances of upright APDs in the attached video (a classic) and even some quasi-Hillbillies (not Jville quality of course). And, some Offshore Hammer Time. Enjoy.
No more Gumbo for you!
