Before we started our partner exercises, I wanted to kick things off with a round of 21. We did burpees. Then we got into it.
Round 1
Partner 1 – Broad Jump every other line/Body Builder
Partner 2 – Decline Merkins in sets of 10
Round 2
Partner 1 – Suicides on every line
Partner 2 – Dips in sets of 20
Round 3
Partner 1 – Duck walk every other line/Burpee
Partner 2 – Squats in sets of 20

Rotated until time


Every decision you’ve ever made, every yes or no, every influence, has led you here today. The first time you said yes to the Gloom is the reason you’re here this morning.

Think of up to 3 people you haven’t spoken to in a while. These people can be anyone in your life; family, friend, foe. Make it a point to day to reach out to them. Shoot a quick text, leave a quick voicemail, mend a relationship that weighs heavy on your heart. Be that person today that puts a drop of inspiration in someone’s potentially empty bucket.


Thoroughly enjoyed my first time to Hacksaw! Almost saw Clothespin eat concrete during his bear crawl. Talked about stripper music and dead hookers. Dodged the police. All the great things you expect in the gloom.
