Spice up your burpees

Spice up your burpees

August 13, 2019

Add some spice to your burpees.

It’s no secret, we like cadence exercises. Why? Because there’s no where to hide, you can either do it, or you can’t. And there’s no bonus for speeding through, as if it’s some achievement that you’re done before everyone else.

Cadence exercises separate the herd, because its instantly obvious who’s trying to skate by - and they know they’re exposed too.

We use the Maelz App for our cadence stuff (on the App Store, look it up, no affiliation, just a good app).

Spice up your burpees with a cadence, set beep at 4 seconds.
  • Start position is with your chest on the ground.
  • Beep, explode up, jump as high as you can, return to start position.
  • Rinse repeat.

Miss one cadence? That’s fine, wait it out. Miss two? You’re done.

We will always speak our truth, especially if this goes against the grain of the popular narrative. This is our why.

LEGENDARY ACHIEVEMENTS: Eero Mäntyranta

February 23, 2023

Who is he and why are we talking about him?

For a long time, he held the highest ever recorded VO2max. Let's dig in.

Eero Mäntyranta was a Finnish cross-country skier who won seven Olympic medals, including three gold medals, in the 1960s. Mäntyranta's success in skiing was attributed to his exceptionally high VO2max, measured at a staggering 96 ml/kg/min.
