The Thang : HIM v HIM

We made our way to the tennis courts and partnered up with another PAX of similar abilities. One PAX would run to the end of the tennis courts do either burpees or blockees while the other PAX did the exercise for the round. When the first PAX completed their burpees they ran back and the PAX switched. The PAX that completed the most reps was the “winner” for the round. The winner then did SSH while the loser completed an additional 5 burpees. We completed the following rounds:

  • Goblet Squats / 10 Burpees
  • Curls / 5 Blockees
  • Big Boy Situps / 10 Burpees
  • Calf Raises with Coupons / 10 Burpees
  • Step ups / 5 Blockees
  • Overhead triceps / 10 Burpees
  • Lunges with Coupons / 10 Burpees
  • Bent over rows / 10 Burpees

We took an intermission and @Panhandle lead us in a recovery round in cadence of flutter kicks.For MABA participants there were a total of 75 burpees (including the T-Bone burpees) plus any additional that you took for losing a round.


ChatGPT today is as inferior and “dumb” as it will ever be. It will only get “smarter” every day that passes. We as men should follow this model – strive to constantly make ourselves better than we were the day before. Let’s leave 2023 better men than we came into it.
