Fun with Acronyms

  • When: 01/29/20
  • QIC: Nighshift
  • The PAX: Elf, Coxswain, Yurt, Crimson, Cat5, Maestro, Loonie,

The game plan for today was utilizing the acronyms EMOM and AMRAP. The beauty of these is every pax can modify easily as needed. If 10 burpees a minute seems like a pipe dream, set your target for 6. Set your goal… whatever that number may be. If your Coxswain, perhaps you should make it 14 reps each minute. It works both ways. Whatever your number, each man is responsible to himself for getting a tough workout.

On a personal note, I once again failed on counting even though I was using timers! 100 burpess in 10 minutes turned into 120 in 12 mins. That’s a strong fail! I ran out of time for Mary too. Good thing we had core through out the beat down. Lastly, I had to verify the spelling of two dudes names for this BB. Something worth mentioning perhaps to the next guy you invite. “You’ll get in better shape and have some fellowship with good men. You might even become a better speller.”
