There was a bet, with odds.  If UGA won, anyone pulling for TCU would pay up 22 burpees.  If TCU won, then anyone pulling for the dawgs would pony up 78 burpees.

So that is how it started – the tcu men did hard stuff, like burpees, while the safe bet, dawg choosers looked like idiots and did alabama prom dates.   One group became stronger, sharpening each other like iron while the other tightened their gluteus maximuses and abdomens.  In a recent gallup poll, Americans were asked which type of man is most respected:

A – those who go against the grain and work hard, honest, pay their debts and with servant hearts (59%)

B – those who waiver in the wind, succumb to popular opinion, fold like cheap tents and derive their self worth from a team of young men, of which none of them even know their names (8%)

C – fence straddlers (0.2%*)

D – Bald men (32.8%)

Footnote * – 0.2% were undecided or took longer than 60 seconds to decide so they automatically categorized as fence straddlers

We then warmed up with the usual – ssH, coppers, weeds, phelps and sungods

This is what we did:

50 overheads with kettle bells, 40 kettle bell swings, 30 goblet squats, 20 lunges, 10 snatches – then sprint 40 yards, mosey back.  We did this 2X

10 curls, 10 tris, 10 overheads, 10 row with left, 10 row with right – then sprint 40 yards, mosey back. We did this 5x

15 hammers, 15 bigboys, 15 proms, 30 lbcs – then sprint 40 yards, mosey back.  We did this 3X

Finally, we did what was supposed to be a 10 minute amrap but only had 3-4 minutes left, but the sequence was:

5 swings, 5 goblets, 5 jump squats, 5 double threats, 5 hinge dl right, 5 hinge dl left

People complained, made fun of each other, were sarcastic, philosophised, theorized, challenged, and laughed.  What else could we ask for?  Great morning with great guys, getting stronger.
