Old friends and new friends

 This is our best attempt at a triple selfie.  My daughter would be embarrassed.  We are all looking at different cameras,. Great workout nonetheless, and good to have someone like Chip to workout with this morning.

This is our best attempt at a triple selfie.  My daughter would be embarrassed.  We are all looking at different cameras,. Great workout nonetheless, and good to have someone like Chip to workout with this morning.

While working in the Florida Keys, I got a text from my good friend, Chip Lusk.  Chip was an original member of the RRL in Chattanooga and then moved to Atlanta where he set up his own garage gym, RRLanta.  Check out his group on Facebook and in this post.

Chip has a group visiting the resort where I film my television show, Hawks Cay Resort.

I ate dinner with his group last night and then we met at 6 am this morning for a good bodyweight workout followed by some breathing and gratitude exercise.

His Uncle joined us who is managing the construction project at the resort.  Lots of coincidence with him...He bought the house 2 doors down from the one I owned in Key West, knows Chip, knows Chattanooga and now works on Hawks Cay, my second home.  Crazy.

He also is a retired Navy vet and was Force Recon in Vietnam.  The guy is a stud.  67 years old and was hitting this workout with us this morning in the rain:

Jump Squats x 25 reps 

     Burpees x 10 reps 

 

Pushups x 25 reps 

     Burpees x 10 reps 

 

Body Weight Squats x 50 reps 

     Burpees x 10 reps 

 

Mountain Climbers x 50 reps (each leg counts as one rep) 

     Burpees x 10 reps 

 

Lunges Left Leg x 25 reps 

     Burpees x 10 reps 

 

Lunges Right Leg x 25 reps 

     Burpees x 10 reps 

 

High Knees (Running/Sprints in Place) x 50 reps 

     Burpees x 10 reps 

 

V sits x 50 reps 

     Burpees x 10 reps 

 

Jumping Jacks x 50 reps 

     Burpees x 10 reps 

 

Push to Plank x 50 reps 

     Burpees x 10 reps 

I found this one on the internet last night.  It looked pretty good so we gave it a try.  We were in the middle of a Tropical Depression so the swim workout I had planned might not have been the best idea, and running was probably out.  This one was fine...not too hard, but challenging.
