A simple idea for Christmas. What would life be like without burpees? Would we all go mad like George Bailey? Would Mr. Potter destroy the banking system? Let's see.


A lap up to the lot with some high knees and butt kickers. The usual warmup ending with one note: Q says, Everytime a bell rings the PAX do 10 Mercans.

The Thang:

Grab a solid rock to end the year right. And head to the pavillion. Partner up and work down the list while one runs the bathroom loop and the other do reps.
  • Curls
  • Lunges
  • American Hammers
  • Presses
  • Goblet Squats
  • LBCs
  • Skull Crushers
  • Calf Raises
  • Gas Pumpers
The usual complaints: Is this Crossroads with all this running? This music choices is bad! (Eventually settled into a decent playlist) PAX continued to find the bell and we knocked out a total of 70-80 Mercans throughout the time. Note: I struggled the night before on this design and what to 'spell' and after assurances from my family that it would be fine I of course was called out by Stroller who noted this wasn't a word (It started as 'Clarence'). I will note this for next time...


Back to the flag where it was noted without burpees we still had bad music, a solid workout, and the typical mumblechatter: Basically life was the same and burpees add nothing to the world. (Sorry Avis)

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Always a pleasure to lead.
