Mosey to light post – perform 5 burpees, repeat for 9 more light posts adding a new exercise in increments of 5. The group offered up the following – 10 monkey humpers, 15 freddie mercurys, 20 shoulder taps, 25 LBC, 30 bobby hurlys, 35 Don Quijote, 40 Wonder Bras, 45 SSH, 50 second planks. Last set performed on turf field, mosey back to flag right on time.

Message: After listening to the Rich Roll podcast last week with Author Brad Stulberg YHC enjoyed the idea of looking to nature for wisdom, specifically looking at Redwood trees in California. These are the tallest living things on the planet, some over 300ft, but the roots are only 6-12 feet deep, however they are over 100 feet wide and the connect with other trees to survive strong winds and floods. The trees survive because they are connected in a community. No OYO
