Nothing beats a #BurpeeTrain opener

9 faithful posted on this, the day that 365 days prior, YHC was asked by a friend to come out to some crazy early morning workout run group thing.  What a difference a year makes!  Jokingly I requested as 1-year gift to receive a #BurpeeTrain.  I don’t know who in F3Nation pulls the strings at CSX, but right at the stroke of 5:30 we got to kick things off right with a modestly long set of the nastiest exercise.

Conditions: 63 deg, 91% humid…GloomyThe Thang:

#BurpeeTrain cold-open (scarcely had time for a disclaimer)
Mosey to BB outfield
20 Windmills IC
20 Imp. Walkers IC
10 & 10 LAC (reverse after 10)
20 Flutter Kicks IC

Washington Professional Football Team Run around the path to FB field

(After some confusion by YHC that he should be the middle of the moving circle) Circle Up on 15 yard line
365 REPS OF FUN (because only 7 reps make 1 weak…#puns)
All exercises OYO, air-sit or plank until all finish
16 squats
16 lil’ baby crunches, 16 squats
16 merkins, 16 lil’ baby crunches, 16 squats
16 Russian twists, 16 merkins, 16 lil’ baby crunches, 16 squats
16 burpees (#crowdpleaser), 16 Russian twists, 16 merkins, 16 lil’ baby crunches, 16 squats
That makes 240 reps, so naturally we can’t stop there
Same routine, but 8 of everything, bringing the total to 360 reps.
Throw on 5 burpees as the cherry on top to make 365 repetitions, symbolic of 1 year of fun in F3.
