Burpees for America’s 237th Birthday

Burpees for America’s 237th Birthday

15 hearty souls ventured into the gloom and found themselves celebrating July 4th one day early.  There were no beers or burgers at this celebration, but burpees abounded.

The Thang:

Jog to Wendy’s for some 1st meal COP (in cadence):

  • SSH x25
  • IW x25
  • Mountain Climbers x25
  • Peter Parkers x25

Jog to another section of asphalt and find a spot you like (we’ll be here a while)

10 burpees a minute for 10 minutes (100 burpees)

Mary (In cadence)

  • LBC x20
  • Rosalita x20
  • Bicycle x20
  • Greg Lougais x10
  • Russian Twist x10

10 burpees a minute for 10 minutes (100 burpees)

Jog back to launch point

10 burpees a minute for 3 minutes (30 burpees)

7 burpees (yep – 237 burpees total)

More Mary

  • LBC x20
  • Dolly x20
  • Bicycle x20
  • Rosalita x20


Naked Moleskin:

1)      Set a goal and then tell everyone about it.  I think the PAX thought YHC had lost it when they learned the plan was to complete 237 burpees today.  Many times the Q likes to hide what he has lurking around the next corner, but YHC needed to commit himself and the PAX to the task that lay ahead. #FEBA

2)      There was some chatter after the first 10 burpees but it died down pretty quickly after that as everyone tried to focus on the task ahead

3)      Strong work by all to complete what was a mentally and physically challenging workout.  Shout out to The Worm and Loogie with strong second posts

Right before the second set of 100 burpees, the QIC asked “Didn’t you all have an uncle that would beat you up on holidays and birthdays instead of giving you presents?”. I didn’t until today. Now I have an abusive uncle and his name is Uncle Leo. #unsavory

Very tough task but well done to Uncle Leo for making us do it. There is no way I would have thought I could do that many burpees… Nice work Uncle!

Uncle Leo – loved the workout, borrowed it for the Denver PAX.
Fantastic fun for all.
