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.

This risk adverse approach is a result of fearful and weak leadership, where policy and planning are driven by fear their of public opinion courtesy of a rotten mainstream media platform. Any organisation that has any form of conflict at its pointy end should be driven to support the end-user. None deserve a frail egocentric leader who is fearful of answering some difficult questions, all of which have very simple answers.

This weakness from policy makers and commanders spreads like a cancer and infects every single individual below them...

Little key, heavy door
Little key, heavy door

March 04, 2020

The consistent application of basic training principles is the little key. The heavy door is whatever your reason is for training the first place. Every locked door opens easily with the right key. You can hard-knock the bastard, breach your way through and get what you need. But in terms of longevity, that door is cactus.
