Demo of the 2 burpee flavors we didn’t get to; low squat burpees and quiet/lazy burpees.



It was YHC’s 28th birthday a week ago and what a better way to party than with the pax.  YHC also learned all of these types of burpees from a youtube video while sadclowning in a hotel in Montana.  Combine the two and you get 28 reps of lots of different burpees.

Madame tweeted about the pre-KB work last night but it none of the pax(including Madame) made it out by 5 because of the rain.  YHC is grateful that everyone showed up for the main event at 5:30.

There have been times in the past during one of YHC’s Qs that the pax have expressed their displeasure with the planned workout.  Today, Mic Check, Haggis, and Madame were particularly vociferous.  Burpee form(for burpees they just learned) and counts were called into question.  However, some pax we just happy that the Q was only turning 28.  We somehow avoided a Qtiny.

To the pax delight, the clock turned to 6:07 just after the 7th round of burpees.  We had to mosey back to launch earlier than expected.  Make sure you do your homework!

It’s always an honor to lead such a great group of men.  I look forward to my next opportunity to grow stronger with them in the gloom.

“Qtiny” – that’s good humor
Like I told a couple of the pax, you were due for a birthday – you’d been 27 for a couple years.
…just when I thought I couldn’t dislike burpees anymore…..
