Burpees (with Beards)

Posted on

The Rambler lit up the Bat Signal that he needed a sub Q, as he was undergoing a…wait for it….sleep study Thursday evening.  All of us were fairly suspicious, as we’re all pretty confident that The Rambler (just like Chuck Norris) doesn’t actually sleep – he waits.   So YHCs volunteered, and nine men showed […]

Back in January, Shake It Q’d a simple but effective workout: start at the church stairs, run to every island in the parking lot, do five burpees, run back. Simple, yet effective. YHC has been wanting to replicate the workout with a different core exercise. Fast forward to about a month ago. I watch a […]

Alas, there’d be no knee blow-outs  at TBH today and that, my friends, is success. I kicked things off with the Police. Warm-Up Stretches to  ‘Walking on The Moon‘ Standing […]
