Knocked out 5 penalty burpees for a missing flag, a foreshadowing of things to come…then a little mosey to get us warmed up…

The Thang

After the mosey, I ‘splained to the group what we would be doing;

7 sets of 7 exercises with a increasing timed run in between each set; 7 Jump Squats OYO, 7 merkins, 7 Mtn Climbers, 7 Imperial Walkers, 7 Burpees OYO, 7 Shoulder Taps and 7 SSH, after completion of the 7 exercises we would run for 1 1/2, 2, 2 1/2, 3, 3 1/2 and 4 minutes, increasing the run time between each set, see what I did there.

Managed to get 5 sets in before we had to head back, along the way I introduced the Boeing Burpee, every time a plane took off from nearby Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport and Hair Salon, the group would perform 5 burpees! Lots of planes start leaving at 5:55 and judging  by the pax reaction they loved the Boeing Burpees! Lots of enthusiastic mumble chatter confirmed this. 

Back in time for some quick Mary, but since I waited a week to post my BB, I have forgotten what they were, but they were awesome.


We did this…


Hope and Faith, you can hope for something, but you must also have faith. Whether it is faith in the Lord, faith in your fellow man or faith in yourself, if you hope for something, you must have faith that it will happen. And others hold faith in you, remember that as you go through your day.


Convergence at the Beast for Labor Day. 7 am start, little warm up by yours truly followed by a Sidekick beat down!
