Can we followup with a WOD consisting of shots of Tequilla with salt & lime and maybe some Corona chasers?

I think the Corona is probably safe from Swine Flu. The tequilla definitely is. However, we had better have Granny DeSwine weigh in on this.

Happy Birthday Miranda. Because it is your day, it just might make the workout a little less tougher.

Jason Lyons said...

happy b-day miranda. i will not be there but i promise to do 28 mental burpees.

TIM M said...

happy b-day Miranda. I will be sure to do 28 finger burpees at my desk today at work.

Mike said...

happy birthday Miranda...and Tim are there any specific standards for the finger burpee?

Nicole said...

Happy B-day girlie!!!!

I will also do 28 mental burpees as I will not be there tonight. Too much to do at home. See everyone tomorrow.

Tim M said...

Just use your index and middle fingers. 1.stand them in an upright position. 2.Next drop them to the table then quickly stand them back up (3). 4.Once at upright position again touch your thumb and pinky finger together to substitute for the clap. repeat steps 1 through 4 until you reach the desired amount of reps.

Miranda said...

I like Rays WOD!

Thanks for the birthday wishes everyone! See you tonight

Cindy said...

Tim, can you scale the finger burpees?

TIM M said...

Of course, Just add a third or fourth finger to the WOD. Added fingers is perfectly fine just be sure focus on full extension at the top and never leave form. Your thumb and pinky must clap on the full extension or the rep does not count. Meet all of these and you will be an expert at finger burpees.

Happy birthday Miranda. I won't be there tonight but I just did my finger burpees for your birthday - whew, exhausting!

Seamus McGinley said...

how about a virtual burpee?

Laura Pappas said...

Happy Birthday Miranda, I'm not making it tonight either, so guess its some tiring finger burpees for me too!

Danielle said...

Happy Birthday Miranda!
I'm stuck at work again. Hope to be there at 5:15 tomorrow.

Cindy said...

I'm afraid I had to scale my finger burpees (thanks Tim ... I'm exhausted!) but I was wishing you a happy birthday anyway Miranda!

Ray said...

Got home late from work due to influenza madness. Used my 35 lb KB.

Time: 16:40

Then did 28 burpees and a shot of tequila for Miranda. Happy B-Day!

See you at Noon tomorrow.
