Burpee Pong

Burpee Pong

What better way to spend a rainy dreary morning, Burpee Pong!

I’ve been working more hours than I should have and was unsure till late Thursday afternoon if I could make it this Friday. Which means I had nothing planned. But inspiration struck when I was walking in through the garage and spotted a Home Depot 5-gal Homer bucket. And the golf ball?? Well lets just say I’ve never played a round of golf that didn’t involve a windmill. But I have a cat that loves chasing golf balls around the house. Thanks Moose!


Slow mosey to the end of the parking lot;

SSH x 20

Imperical Walkers x 20

Merkins – Down / up then extend right arm and left leg out, hold for a 4 count, repeat with opposite limbs.

Arm Circles and some Shoulder Stretches

And the rain started, just in time to seek shelter under the awning at the school entrance.

THE THANG (“thang”?, is that really a thing?):

Round One

KB Merkins – Curls – Lawmowers – 2 Handed KB Swings – Overhead Tricep Ext. – Upright Rows

The Timer was a KB Bear Crawl up and back the length on the entryway to the middle school.

At the end of the KB Bear Crawl, the timer gets one shot to place the golf ball into the bucket from about 15-16 feet away. A miss equals 3 burpees for everyone. In, and then a bounce out of the bucket, equals 5 burpees for everyone.

Round Two

Reverse Crunch – Flutter Press – American Hammer – Kettlebell Crunch – Overhead Press – 1 Handed KB Swings

The Timer was a lungewalk, passing the KB under your legs each stride. With another attempt at the bucket.


Prayers and thanks for Glass Joe’s wife’s recovery. Prayers for Bullwinkle’s Mom’s upcoming surgery.


Burpee Pong Score was:

e-Harmony 2/2

Woody 2/2

Bullwinkle 1/2

Snookie In & Out (5 Burpees for all)

With the rain, we were at the right location with overhead cover, but it didn’t matter much, since we were all soaked through with sweat. The playlist was a little Rush heavy, but snuck in some VH w/ Sammy and me and Bullwinkle had a discussion about which version of VH was better. Though nobody mentioned the VH version with the dude from Extreme, understandably so.

Snookie and Hoffa were off in 2 wheeled BMW land, discussing past and present scooters and what Beemer NP, the drummer from Rush rides.

Hair Band & Crypto were ensconced in a Go-Ruck fortress while slinging bells around. I think HB found a new victim for the next Go-Ruck.

That’s all I have, I mean, can remember.

An honor to lead and share the gloom with you guys!

PS, I did try to sink the golf ball in the bucket several times the night before and didn’t nail it once, not once! Guess the 2/2 was the Q-drenaline…
