Burpee Style


9 of Richmond’s best braved the Quioccasin terrain for some light exercise on a brisk Tuesday morning.


Quick warmup lap and mosey to the front of the school, followed by 20 SSH’s, 10 Merkins, 20 LBC’s, 7 Don Quixotes and 15 ceremonial Arm Circles.

The Thang:

Start up – Alternate 5 Box Jumps and 30 Merkins, ascending 5 jumps and descending 5 Merkins until 30 BJ’s and 5 Merkins. Al Gore for the six.

Tennis time – Mosey to the rear tennis courts for 30x each of front, side and cross line jumps, each followed by a tennis court shuttle. Next up was one tennis court suicide with 5 jump squats at each stop. Mosey on to the basketball courts.

Jerkin Gym – Given the excellent Heartbreak Swamp conditions, groups of 3 completed makeshift Jerkins at the basketball courts, 10 each followed by 100 cumulative donkey kicks. Repeat 3x. Plank for the six plus bonus plank time. Mosey to the track.

Bench + Dip + Abs:  At the bleachers, bench kicks x 30 then up to the wooden bleachers for dips x 30. Repeat 3x. 20 inclined WWII’s followed by American Hammers to round out a beautiful morning workout.

No Burpees were performed as part of this workout.

Announcements:  Go Ruck coming up soon – see other back blasts for details.

Moleskin – I was thankful for the chance to lead such a fine group this morning, inadvertently including “Burpee Style” during tennis time instruction. PAX was thoroughly confused but embraced the lack of burpees and the days theme was solidified. Later, after brief debate, it was also determined conclusively that it will in fact be darker next Tuesday morning than it is today. Spring forward. Case closed. Finally, 810 bench kicks were performed in an unspoken tribute to Honeydo this morning. Garbage Plate is still skeptical the bench kick is a true F3 movement, yet we will persist.
Peace – GP
