4 HIM of Fleming Island posting in the cool gloom with RSVP in hand to celebrate YHC birthday. Yes, he turns 49 today, still shy of that respect, but he still wanted to celebrate in style. YHC planned what he thought would be the beatdown to celebrate. Little did the pax know, the surprise would be on them. Afterall, what better way to celebrate this occasion than with a “burp”-day party.
- SSH x20 IC
- Squats x10 IC
- Merkins x10 IC
- Groiners x20 OYO
Now that the Pax had warmed up every muscle group needed for the party, YHC had to break it down to them in a not so gentle way….
- Descending Deconstruction Burpees– essentially breaking down burpees to each component starting with 10 squats, 10 merkins, 10 groiners, 10 jumps, then 9 of each, then 8 of each…. All the way down to 1.
- Mini-burpee break- regular running suicide
- Bearpees- bear crawl steps to burpee ratio to last cone ~30-40 yards away
- First round: 4 bear crawl steps (count one hand): 1 burpee
- Second round: 4 bear crawl steps: 2 burpees
- Third round: 4 bear crawl steps: 3 burpees
- Fourth round: 4 bear crawl steps: 4 burpees
- Mini-break #2- regular running suicide
- Burpee Dans- more ratios, this time lunge walks to burpees, same distance; by now, the pax were suspecting a dismal pattern
- First round: 4 lunge steps (count each leg): 1 burpee
- Second round: 4 lunge steps: 2 burpees
- Third round: 4 lunge steps: 3 burpees
- Fourth round: 4 lunge steps: 4 burpees
- Mini-break #3- regular running suicide
- Broad-jump Burpees- you guessed it…
- First round: 4 broad jumps: 1 burpee
- Second round: 4 broad jumps: 2 burpees
- Third round: 4 broad jumps: 3 burpees
- Fourth round: 4 broad jumps: 4 burpees
YHC spoke of how at this stage in life, many men find themselves in a “mid-life” crisis. They question what have I accomplished? What kind of legacy am I leaving behind? How would I look in a shiny new red sports car? YHC feels that F3 Jacksonville has really helped him avert the magnitude of this mid-live crisis. The support that the HIM of this group, through both spoken and unspoken trials during his life, have resonated strongly with him. It motivates YHC to believe he can, and does more; not just for F3, but at church, work and at home. He will is eternally grateful for this group. YHC ended with challenging the men to continue to EH, because there isn’t a man out there who wouldn’t benefit from a little (or a lot) of F3 in their life.
