Archives: Burpees make for an unBEARable StinkHill

  • When: 20180929
  • QIC: Scully
  • The PAX: Cowboy, Average Joe, FreeFall, Finkle, Chief, Scully
  • 6 Pax (including FNG, Chief) reported for duty bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to StinkHill this morning only to suffer thru an unBEARable assortment of bear crawls and burpees mandated by Dreamliner’s misguided appeal to work our way thru the entire exercise list in order from A to Z. Was it a coincidence that Dreamliner did not post to either Ironclad or StinkHill on “B” day? I’ll let you all ponder that and come to your OWN conclusion…

    Michael Phelps.      IC. 10
    Bay City Scissors.  IC*. 10
    *YHC completely botched the cadence on these and had to start over. Who knew counting to 8 was so difficult? Glad these are behind us.

    The Thang

    Bear Crawl Burpees (for a description of this gem, as well as the rest, just read Submac’s BB for Ironclad… also you’ll note that YHC failed to go in exact order in a (failed) effort to make things a bit more palatable)

    Bataan Death March -counterclockwise around StinkHill until we reached the tiered area on the north side.

    Bear Crawl 1-2-3 (Bear crawl was from the base of the hill to the first tier, then crawl bear back down)

    Bear Crawl Inch Worm ( Base of the hill to the top. Took exactly 4 rounds for the 6 Pax to reach the top…MUCH more than YHC anticipated

    Mosey back to the flags for:

    Bear Crawl Snake (ended after only one round due to YHC’s brainfart… Note to self: StinkHill is 1 hour long, not 45 minutes. How long have I been doing this anyway? Dementia is just around the corner… You guys are going to REALLY enjoy my Q’s then…It’s much easier to do multiple sets of burpees when you don’t remember that you already did them!

    After a FreeFall reminder that we still had 15 minutes left (must not have worked him hard enough), we moved on to

    Bearmuda Triangle (where Freefall proceeded to use his exceptional bear crawling skills to leave us all behind looking at HIS…not a pretty sight…

    With sand still left in the hourglass, YHC’s shoulders were toast and made the call to forego additional bear crawls in favor of a little Mary:

    10 Big Boys/10 WWII’s rinse and repeat until 50 of each had been performed or the time expired.


    YHC shared the following verse that seemed very appropriate considering all those “B”‘s that we had just persevered thru:

    James 1:2-4,12
    2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds,3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
    12 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.


    Keep giving it away men,
