4 Corners with a Little Suck

Jonesborough Immortal Station (Jonesborough) Northeast Tennessee

14 PAX rolled out of bed to better themselves at #immortal_station for 4 Corners with a Little Suck led by YHC! The humidity was high at 97%, but the stars were out and beautiful; especially from Corner 2 – Abs and Core!!!


The 4th corner includes some new burpee variations. So, used the COP as an opportunity to demo each movement.

  • Bat Wings (LBAC-Forward, LBAC-Backward, Seal Claps, Overhead Claps) – IC – 10
  • 1 – BOPO OYO
  • 1 – Yurpee OYO
  • 1 – Hand Release Prison Cell Merkin Burpee OYO
BOPO Burpee, One-Legged Burpee, Plank Jack, One-Legged Burpee (other leg).
Yurpee Merkin at bottom of burpee is a clap-merkin and on up portion there are 2 tuck jumps per burpee. Basically, a Clurpee with 2 tuck-jumps.
Hand Release Prison Cell Merkin Burpee Drop to Plank, do 1 Hand Release Merkin then bring your right knee in and back, do 1 Hand Release Merkin then bring your left knee in and back, do 1 Hand Release Merkin then bring both feet in and jump up = 1 HRPCMB complete.

There are many time in our lives as husbands, fathers, sons, employees, employers that we face situations that can feel like they’re pushing us to the limits. By nature, we’re “fixers”. If there’s a problem, we want to step up, take care of it and move on. But that doesn’t always happen…

In Proverbs 3:5-6, we read “Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and lean not on your OWN understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him (God); and He WILL direct your paths.” (emphasis is mine)

These are verses many of us have heard and can probably quote. Yet, actions speak louder than words. Let’s remember that we need help; be it from our spouse, family, friends, coworkers and God.

IPC Week One starts on Friday!
