Intro: YHC switched it up this morning by going longer on the warmup and Q-lite on the workout, prompting Stringbean to question if this was a “welcome party.” 15 men are better through their suffering than they were at 0459. Welcome FNG Short Timer (aka Eddie Horne). Short Timer is a SSGT in the Army, who will unfortunately be reporting to a new duty station in Cleveland, OH in the next six weeks.
Warmup: TTT, imperial walker, SSH, fairy jacks, merkins, thrusters, squats, monkey humpers, calf raises, shoulder taps, crunches
Thang: Grab a block and lineup on the wall at the basketball court for a round of Usain Bolt. Count off by 3’s – the 1’s will call an upper body exercise, 2’s lower body, and 3’s core. The man calling the exercise will elect to flip a tire the length of the basketball court or run the perimeter of the court carrying both a log and a block.
The exercises were: burpees, lunge w/ block, dammits w/ block, OHP, squats w/ block, WW1 situps w/ block, curls, peoples’s chair, Freddie Mercury, tri extension, Bobby Hurleys, flutter kicks, block presses, something, something else.
Next, divide into two teams for a relay race. Team #1 will flip the tire from end to end of the court. Team #2 will run around the perimeter of the court with the log and the block. Men who are not flipping or running will assume the plank position.
Mary: side plank pulses (think side plank pickle pounders), rocking horse LBC’s
Pledge, Announcements, Prayer Requests:
Devo: “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be rewarded in us.” Romans 8:18
In fitness, relationships, business, and our salvation, reward cannot come without suffering. You cannot have a testimony without a test. God did not promise that being a Christian would be easy – He promised that it would be worth it.
