5 Bus Burpees

The Thang

Pax paired off for Doracides … three cones spaced out approximately 10 yards.

First Pax starts doing reps of the following exercises:

  • 200 Merkins
  • 300 Reverse Crunches
  • 400 Squats
  • 300 Imperial Walkers

    Second Pax runs to first cone, does a burpee, and returns; then runs to second cone, does two burpees, and returns; then runs to third cone, does two burpees and returns. After third cone, Pax switch places until all reps of an exercise are done. If a pair finishes before the rest of the Pax, they partner up to help that group complete their reps.


As an organization whose primary mission is to invigorate male leadership, it’s worth taking the time to test ourselves on whether what we are doing is good leadership or not. That test is love.

Do I love the mission more than myself? If you love the purpose — the goal — and hold it as more important than your own motivations, those you lead will also embrace the mission.

Do I love my people more than myself? If you love the people who follow you more than you love yourself, they will further embrace the mission and everyone moves in the same direction.

Do I love character more than myself? F3 refers to character in this sense as “virtue:” choosing to do the right thing when doing the wrong thing would be easier without severe consequence. If you choose virtue, your team that loves the mission and feels your respect will also choose virtue. As the leader, making the right choice provides them cover to do the same.


Had YHC prepared a different COT, he might not have “noticed” the next two buses that went by. Few things suck like having to do burpees in the middle of a burpee beatdown.
