The theme of the workout came from the fact that it was day 8 of the 40 days of discipline. Even though it’s early in the 40 days, YHC hopes everyone is still on track at this point. Discipline involves giving up things that are bad for you. It also includes doing things that you don’t necessarily like but you know you need to get better. For YHC, this includes burpees. So if we were going to have a discipline theme, it would have to involve burpees… and lots of them.
As the PAX started to roll in, there was an FNG. We were informed by Rudolph that he was EH’ed by Rudolph and Gastone the night before at the WA Bess Elementary School dance. This not only gave Time Frame an opportunity to showcase his extensive set of dance moves, but also gave inspiration for an extra funky round of Mary that we’ll talk about later.
Disclaimer for the FNG.

The Pain Lab broke off while the rest of the PAX moseyed to the office building beside First Presbyterian. Once we got there, we realized there were eight of us which fit perfectly into the theme of the day.
The first round of 8’s went something like this:
Lunge Walk across the parking lot to the short wall on the other side of the lot (1).
Derkins x 8
Bear Crawl back across the parking lot (2)
Shoulder Taps x 8
Repeat Lunge Walk (3)/Derkins/Bear Crawl (4)/Shoulder Taps
Lunge Walk (5)
Dips on Parking Bumpers x 8
Crab Walk back across the parking lot (6)
LBCs x 8
Repeat Lunge Walk (7)/Dips/Crab Walk (8)/LBCs to finish out round 1.
Mosey to the steps at the back of First Pres and the second round of 8’s.
Run to the top of the steps and complete a round of BASS, then run back down and do 5 burpees. One letter each time up the steps. This confused the PAX because they expected 8 burpees. However, there’s a plan for all this. There was also more discussion than necessary over what exactly constituted a Sumo Squat.
Big Boy Situps x 8
American Hammers x 8
Sumo Squats x 8
Seal Jacks x 8
Two rounds of BASS meant 8 trips up the steps and 40 totals burpees.
Mosey to the track at Sherwood Elementary for the third round of 8’s and a burpee countdown.
Partner up. Partner 1 runs in one direction while Partner 2 runs in the opposite direction. Where they meet, they both do 8 burpees. Run back around to the start. Where they meet, they both do 7 burpees. Rinse and repeat for 6 burpees, then 5, then 4, 3, 2, and 1 final burpee at the start.
That’s 36 more burpees for a total of 76. The PAX seemed to know we were going for 80 burpees so with a push from the group, we did the final 4 burpees at the track to get them out of the way.
Mosey back to the office building beside First Pres and onto the sidewalk for some Monkey Humpers x 16.
Squats x 16 (no squat discussion necessary this time)
Monkey Humpers x 8
Squats x 8
Mosey to the Schiele to meet up with The Pain Lab. When we arrived, the group was heavily involved in some serious zen-ish yoga poses. We tried to join in with lackluster results.
With some time remaining, it was time for some Mary. As I mentioned earlier, this was to be an extra funky round of Mary inspired by the dance the day before. With the Cha Cha Slide playing in the background, it went something like this:
More Flutter Kicks
American Hammers (maybe, I think)
It appears that the Cha Cha Slide had drowned out the bells so at 8:02, we called it a day.
