    Yep… leaned a new form of torture – the inverse burpee. Youtube it.

    Looks like I might be back in the box next week! Woo-hoo! Looking forward to seeing the gang again.

    1. so I saw two different things on youtube. One had a HSPU, the other just a handstand. Anything that involves HSPUs is amazing and this sounds way more fun than regular burpees…

      1. We just did the handstands as part of the inverse burpees. But you would be amazed to see what passes as a handstand down here.

  2. In your honor Sergeant Abbate.
