Motivator from 39*,**

The Thang:

Around the Track, Lap #1 Burpees in the corners 9/10/10/10 – plank for the 6, Lap #2 Squats in the Corners 9/10/10/10 – Al Gore for the 6.

Mosey to the goal line

Bear crawl to the 39 yard line (first ears of Indian corn – just for you Donatello) – 39 squats, Bernie Sanders to the 78 yard line (2nd ears of Indian corn) – 78 flutter kicks, lunge to the goal line (football = white) – 39 merkins.

We were gonna rinse and repeat but Jar Jar chose the 3 man relay instead.  There was a little break down in communication.  Ponzi snarkily blamed Honeysuckle for not explaining this part very well.  He must have been right, it was like herding cats trying to keep people moving, BUT everyone kept moving.  Lesson learned…..Partner #1 SSH (no limit), Partner #2 across the field, sideline to sideline, to Partner #3, Partner #3 Burpees (goal 78 collectively), tag off so on and so forth.

Since this was a BDay cue we played a little BDay game, Deck of Death to end the day.  Clubs were merkins, hearts were lunges, spades were big boy sit-ups and diamonds were squats, numbers the value on the card.  At the half way point PAX could choose double or nothing, all took the double option (except for Jobs).  As luck would have it Rudy drew the Joker (wild) and we did the elevator ALL DAY.

Finished with 4 gassers side line to side line.

Strong work men.



Put this one in the books.


Just a reminder, we spend a lot of time working on our physical bodies.  Romans 12:1-2: “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. v2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

We spend a lot of time working out and transforming our physical bodies.  This is a good reminder that we are put here for a reason and using our bodies to glorify God is worship in and of itself.  Not worship of our bodies but using our bodies in acts that worship Him.  By making our bodies stronger, this allows us to accomplish more with them.  Let’s remember that the things we do with our bodies should honor Him.  Keep this in mind at home and at work.  With friends, family, colleagues.  Lastly don’t forget to renew your minds as well gentlemen.  Spend time in the Word.  Let it permeate our being.  Don’t neglect the mind/soul over the body.  Jesus Himself said, “For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?”  I’m honored to be a part of this community…


*You shoulda seen the look on the faces when this was announced.  Worth it……

**So I was just funnin’ with the PAX, we weren’t really gonna count all the way from 39 but we finished out the first set of reps.  A little BDay humor.  Baby did one extra SSH before we got him calmed down and stopped, no-one else argued about the issue.
