  • Burpees

    I am officially renaming burpees to either OH GOD NOT BURPEES (the PG version) or FUCKING BURPEES (the R version), depending on whether my kids are around.

    Effin' burpees, man. Effin' burpees.

          people that tell me that calisthenics won't get you in better shape, or make you stronger, are actually saying "i haven't tried burpees yet."

            Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

                    Used to have to do a conditioning circuit for football in which we did sprints, burpees, pushups, and agility drills all while in full pads. I think my football coaches liked to see us suffer...

                            Yesterday, we did jumping burpees. Effin' burpees, man. Effin' burpees.

                            I'm glad to see that misery loves company...
