Oh, there's a good chance that's not the real name, now that I think about it. But you like count to eight while doing this: 1) squat down, 2) put your legs out behind you, 3) go down to do a push-up, 4) come back up, 5) put your legs apart, 6) put them back together, 7) pull them back up into a squatting position, and 8 ) stand back up. If you do a bunch at a relatively fast pace, they killlll you!

and thanks!!

Sweet. It's *kinda* like a burpee, but a little different.

Copy. I can see that getting tough in a hurry.

You're definitely on the right track. Try to remember to keep a log at your gym so you can always cross reference it for weights and reps (or etc) to keep yourself moving forward.

Thanks! I actually had started to keep a physical, written log earlier this summer, but then I got a kidney stone (which SUCKED) so I stopped going to the gym for a bit, and never picked the log back up when I went back. So I will definitely have to start that back up again!
