Burpees – love them or hate them, you should do them. But you already know that because Coach Brad programs them on a regular basis. However, if you have ever wondered why you do them, here is a link to an article that explains 5 of the reasons. https://www.12minuteathlete.com/burpees-are-awesome/

 

Basically, “they burn mega calories, they make you stronger, they are great for conditioning, they are portable and need no equipment and you can add them to almost any workout.”

Wet dogs = Happy dogs

Paul & Joanna Update: we have almost made it to NC but not without incident: ran out of water a couple of times; snagged a crab pot or two. Hopefully that will be it. I know it is cold in Pittsburgh and you all think we are basking in the warm sunshine. Not quite. We had a frost on the boat a couple of days ago which lasted all morning; eventually thawed around noon.
