    Emperial Walkers with Bupees (Gunner) – Brought these from DR in Houston. Taught us all to hate Emperial Walkers. Emperial Walkers until PAX calls out Burpees and do 5 Bupees, then Emperial Walkers and 4 Bupees and so on…Never thought that the burpee would be the recovery part of an exercise.

    Back to the Flag for Mary:

    • Flutter Kicks
    • Planks
    • LBCs (IC)
    • Mini Bruce Lee

    COT (Marvel)

    God would not start something and then not finish it. We should take comfort in this fact and not worry that we are not doing enough. He has a plan.


    • Beware Hot Potato with Gunner. He doesn’t always play fair.
    • Marvel needs to check his shoes to make sure someone did not slip weights in there.
