Burpee Bliss


Ten of the area’s finest gathered at the brightest AO in RVA for a return to normal Q following last week’s takeover. Briefly discuss if today is the summer solstice (it’s tomorrow) or if it is simply the longest day of the year (it’s also tomorrow), before we moseyed to the front of the school for:


  • 20x SSH
  • 10x Helicopters
  • 10x DQs
  • 10x Merkins
  • 5 stride bear crawl forward (to get onto the cool “grass”)
  • 20x LBCs
  • 10x Scorpion Kicks

The Thang

Mosey over to the rectangular parking lot for exercises everyone loved. Partner up for 4 different exercises, 3 different sets. While one partner exercises, the other runs various lengths around the quadrilateral and back. Exercises were:

  • Set 1: Merkins / Lunges / WWIIs / Burpees
  • Set 2: Diamond Merkins / Jump Squats / WWIs / Burpees
  • Set 3: Werkins / Calf Raises / American Hammers / Burpees

Multilingual 10 count from Pigskin then off we moseyed down Lakewood to a left on Hillsdale. Stop and point our rears south and complete 20 monkey humpers in Lockjaw’s driveway.

Continue our mosey to the ‘P’ shaped lot for a modified dora. 100 CDDs, 100 Side Lunges, 200 LBCs. Collect the 6 and then back to the flag where we counted, spouted off various names, and YHC took us out.


  • First Watch is yacking this week
  • TYA has the bridge this Saturday
  • House Party has a VQ at Rock N Roll on Saturday


Marvelous morning today for Hoedown. Other than the initial rolling in the grass, we stayed dry today. Let’s hope we can keep this weather for a little longer!
