This whole workout was based on the routine I came up with for the song “Jump”.  The lads did a pretty good job on the trivia, but they could have done better. Mudface said that he would do much better on a genre called Black Metal.  No Idea what that is.   No one came dressed in spandex with a hole cut out of their butt, but Emoji did show up this morning with some wacky looking beard and hair.  It looked like an ancient medieval wizard get-up.  It did make us laugh though when he tried to do the burpees at the beginning with it on.

See you all in the gloom
