10 pax joined the #Burpeecember challenge whether they wanted to or not. Here’s how it went down.


  • Mosey around the parking lot & circle up in the suicide lot.
  • SSH x20
  • IST x15
  • Windmill x10


  • Run to the first line across the parking lot.
  • Do 10 burpees, 20 LBC’s, and 30 air squats.
  • Run to the next line & repeato, all the way back & forth across the parking lot til Mary


  • Mason Twist x15
  • Reverse Crunch x10
  • Squirm x15
  • Low Flutter x15
  • Crunchy Frog x10
  • J.Lo x10


  • An honor to lead, as always. Especially when selfishly crafting a workout to pay my #Burpeecember tax for the day.
  • Great, great work out there today. There were elements of “you against you” and “you against the pax” in this one, and I think everyone pushed themselves. I was in the bottom half and finished 13 rounds: that’s 130 burpees, 260 LBCs, and 390 air squats. T-claps to BBQ for leading the pax with 19 rounds completed: 190 burpees, 380 LBCs, and 570 air squats, and to Clueless for nipping at his heels the whole time.
  • Join some of the pax, Ms, and 2.0s at Harrisburg Town Center this Saturday 9am for the Jingle Bull Run 5k supporting the Hickory Ridge Boosters.
  • My M’s 2nd grade students are collecting new & gently used suitcases & duffel bags for Cabarrus County kids in foster care (up to age 17). Bring donations to a workout or comment below & we’ll make other arrangements. Thanks!

    It’s not too late to join #Burpeecember. 100 burpees per day for the rest of the month. Everyone this morning already took care of today (and banked some for tomorrow). If we had more time I think BBQ could have taken care of his whole month already.

    @Gapper – That workout sounds horrible. I thought we did well with 60 burpees this AM. Remind me not to visit Harrisburg in December. #ouch

    Starting feeling those squats more and more with each round. Thanks for the burn @Gapper!

    #TClaps @BBQ for leading the PAX.

    @Gapper – There’s no way I would have thought up today’s torture nor would I recommend doing it all alone. Having the PAX there was the only thing keeping me going. Plus, I could hear @Clueless on my foot steps the whole time. If he was still going it meant I couldn’t stop. Iron Sharpens Iron.

    That was enough burpees today for me this whole month. Tclaps to all of you doing this craziness everyday.

    No banking… Doh! Good in. Certainly painful. As I have toured different AOs over the past few months, it is confirmed that The Ridge is among the toughest. Today is more evidence.

    No banking? Incorrect! Solo Cup and I discussed it at Bojangles; there’s no debt allowed, but saving for the future is acceptable. It’s the Dave Ramsey method, and you keep your hands off those 30 burpees in my piggy bank! #CashIsKing

    Correct, you can Bank, but no Debt. New challenge, how fast can you do your 100? I am down to 15 min.

    Since I’m not officially in the #Burpeecember, call if you need to take out a loan. Interest rates at record lows.

    @BBQ – In exchange for your 90 surplus burpees, I’ll help clean out your closet by taking a duffel bag off your hands. Deal?

    @Gapper – great workout. Simple, but effective!

    @Othello – thanks for hanging back with me. Take care of that knee.
