Mosey to the Lower Parking Lot

The Thang

Load the Gun

The .223 Remington is typically used in an AR-15 (Armalite, not Assault Rifle). And the typical magazine capacity for that round is 30 (sometimes 20, and some of the PAX wished that it was 20). So, we must load the gun with 30 “rounds”. Since YHC didn’t have an AR-15 with me, burpees were used as a substitute for the “rounds”.

30 Burpees OYO


Each PAX performs:

10 American Hammers

10 Bobby Hurleys

Immediately jailbreak to the other side of the parking lot (approximately 78 yards).

10 Merkins

Plank for the 6

Rinse and repeat

After 6 rounds of this, we moseyed to the tennis courts

Unleash the Beast

1 Round of 2 Exercises, 6 sets of 6 reps each. In addition, sometimes a gun will have a malfunction (stovepipe, fail to fire, double feed, etc…) Therefore, each minute on the minute we will perform a .223. This is 2 burpees, 2 high kicks, and 3 Ray Lewises.

Traveling burpees (mode of transport)/Plank Jacks

YHC was over the burpees before the round was over, so the punt team was called onto the field.

No Easy Day

During the song, “Brighter Than A Thousand Suns” by IM, PAX perform the following 3 exercises without stopping…

5 Merkins

5 Squats


Rinse and repeat until song’s end.


Once the gun is fired, you can’t call that bullet back. It is going to damage what it hits, and there is nothing you can do to stop it. Like a bullet, a harsh word damages those in its path. There is nothing that we, as men, can do to stop the damage. No apology will heal the wounds

James 3:3-8 “When we put bits in the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.”

Watch what you say!


I wish the AR-15 had 5-round mags for the .223. Other than that, everyone seemed to enjoy my playlist of love songs (it’s February), metal, and classic rock.
