The Easter Burpee

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 4/18/17
  • QIC: Bowzer
  • The PAX: Heisenburg, Brief, Jumanji, Snuffy, Big Bird, Burmese Python, Farah and Farah, SOC, Synapse, Eileen, Drone, Barker, Bowzer

13 Pax assembled in the gloom to burn off nasty Easter peeps and chocolate bunnies that we protected our 2.0’s from. Way to go men. Pre mumblechatter around the topic of which was better, Peeps or those nasty circus peanuts that can be used as packing material.  Gross.


Full disclosure, I could not find the printed work out I had created, so I went off memory and anything that may make Jumanji sweat. As he was wearing the scary vest, I wanted him to at least get his money’s worth.

SSH, Hillbillies and Snuffy’s in cadence.  Let me take a moment to tell you that although the Snuffy was meant as a tribute exercise to our Snuffalofogus, it is very disturbing to be in the center of 12 men doing that. Take a moment to think about it.  I did not sleep well that night. I wonder who could?  Any way…..

The Thang

Mosey to the court for a round of 4 corners:

Corner 1: 5 Burpees

Corner 2: 5 Burpees + 10 BBSU

Corner 3: 5 Burpees + 10 BBSU + 15 merkins

Corner 4: 5 Burpees + 10 BBSU + 15 merkins + 20 lunges ( 10 each leg)

Mosey to the Raquet ball court for Wall walkers and Bear crawl back to the beginning.

Back to the court for another round of 4 corners, this time in reverse order.

To the Jungle gym for a round of Ladders.

1 pull up and 9 merkins + 11 squats (I’m stretching her to try to come up with something to do. There was some discussion on how this went, but we figured it out. While YHC was attempting his pull ups, a funny thing happened. He grabbed the steering wheel and low and behold! It came apart from its moorings and YHC went crashing to the wood chips. Talk about embarrassing!

To the pavilion for some dips and HB leg ups.  Next up! Tug of war! My $20 investment in the battle rope came in handy as we broke into 4 teams (slightly ill matched) for a tug of war battle. Can’t remember who won, but I have no doubt the winning team will announce it in Slack.

A lap around the park brought more mumblechatter about Peeps and peanuts! Gross. I recalled that I can no longer eat Lil Debbie star crunches do to binge eating a whole box once.

Back to the rope for some line hops and Rocky Balboas. We ended with a ring of fire with each pax counting off 10.5 kicks each. Yes! 10.5. It was intentional.


I am very grateful to be part of F3 and benefit more than just physically. Keep EH-ing!

Prayers and announcement for the mud run!
