Teapots, Baby Makers, and Proper Merkins

Conditions: Summer in famously hot Columbia. 79 degrees and climbing, cloudy, humidity like a sauna, no breeze.
Nine pax took the Daily Red Pill, fought off the sleepies, and braved the sauna like humidity for a Happy Trees led kettle bell workout.

Mission Impossibles x20
Seal Jacks x20
The Thang:
Proper Form Merkins x10
Sumo Squats 10x each leg
Side Plank Shoulder Press 12x each arm
Baby Makers AKA Hip Thrusters (crowd pleaser)

Chair Press (rounds 2 and 3 only) 12x

After the first round of exercises Stretch gently corrected our proper form Merkins, making them even more proper. Naturally we felt quite pleased with ourselves and much more proper than the previous proper form Merkins. 🙂 🙂

Devo by Happy Trees: I shared a moment from our GORUCK event last weekend. Sometimes stepping out of your comfort zone and choosing the harder thing can be rewarding.
