Hmmm, I don't think it's usually Tank's idea to do burpees.Seems to me, someone else is more infamous for handing out burpees.😉

 

 

And this is how I know that this is exactly what someone who intends to hand out burpees would say!

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.
