Complete 10 min of diligent work on each of the following.  You have “maxed out” once you’ve completed 50 HSPUs, 50 pullups and 200 DUs.

pullups (kipping)
double unders   (If you can easily string 50, or more – try backwards DUs, or tripleunders.)

Post total reps completed per exercise to comments.  If no reps completed, post attempts and what you think you need to work on.


1 – A run of three wins, or grand events.

While accomplishing any of the three moves above are grand events worthy of celebration, we’d like to kick that up a notch.  You have the GPP Trifecta (“Trifective”) once you can complete ALL of the following:

5/10 HSPUs – From arms strait, to top of head in contact with Abmat.  Some part of each hand must lie inside the width of your shoulders.

10/20 pullups (kipping) – From arms strait, to chin above.  You may use no outside assist.  You may employ unlimited rests from the hang.

25 double unders – Consecutive

Now THERE’S a juggle!!

I saw the below video on fb today.  You’ve probably seen it, unless you’re like me and rarely get on fb and when you do you don’t spend much time there.  But this one grabbed me and I’m glad I watched it.  It reminded me of an experience I had the other day…

We had a major rainstorm on Tuesday.  I was pulling up to my kids’ school lamenting the fact that I had to get out of the car in this pure sheet of rain.  I pulled up behind a lady pushing her little boy in a stroller over to her car.  The boy was crying as he was getting soaked.  I questioned why she didn’t extend the umbrella on the stroller over her sons head as he was getting drenched.  She then proceeded to open the rear of her car and mess a bit with her stroller.  I then questioned why she didn’t put the poor soaking crying baby in the car while she messed with her stroller.

There I sat questioning this gal as I “patiently” waited for her to load up so I could pull into her spot and be that much closer to the door of the school.  At that time a gentleman who was parked across the street ran over to this lady with his coat.  He held it over her head as she finished loading up her stroller and her son.  After she was in her car and pulled away the gentleman ran back to his car, got his son out of the car and hurried into the school.

This was a lesson I will never forget, and one I hope I always feel as deeply as I feel now.  I don’t wanna be the girl with the attitude I had in the car that day.  I do not want to go through life looking at others questioning why they do things the way they do.  I want to be the person that gets up and helps.  The video clip is short, but a good reminder.
