Gloom Mountain Burpees
Stumbled across this on twitter this week and swooned
– Mosey Burpees – Mosey from upper lot to lower lot then back with pitstops for 15 burpee sets – 75 total
– Thunderstruck – 5 minutes – 33 burpees
Chumbawamba (Tubthumping) – 5 minutes – 27 burpees
– Burpee sprint ladder – 10 burpees, sprint to line, 9 burpees, sprint back, etc etc – 55 burpees (modification was running back and forth)
– Uphill Crawl Bear then 5 burpees, Downhill bear crawl then 4 more, etc etc – 15 burpees (modification was running up and down the hill)
– Amrap burpees with only five minutes remaining. In a perfect world we’d have time for a 100 burpee set to finish for 305 total burpees.

Roughly half the group stayed on the burpee train completing ~220 burpees by 0615


Tyran Mathieu had a solid tweet the other day:
Control your emotions doesn’t mean avoid your amotions. Feel that shit, understand that shit, just don’t lose your shit.

We discussed how men are prone to bottle up emotions and the negative that can result.


YHC returned from a week and a half off for a Disney vacation. Copious burpees is a grand way to return.

Our FNG arrived just a few minutes late and we didn’t realize he was a new guy until the COT. Welcome, Tinkle!
