Intro: As Q’s, sometimes we feel like the PAX need to be entertained with a fun BC, but sometimes there’s more to be gained from a hard, mindless beatdown. This morning was a BC of the mindless variety. 18 men said “yes” to a cold, wet, monotonous workout.
Warmup: LBAC’s to overhead claps, tempo squats to monkey humpers, mountain climbers to shoulder taps, gorilla shuffle burpees.
12’s: one-leg squats & Melbourne Mums, with bear-crawl merkins in between.
If you got through it, you did 132 squats (66 each leg), 66 Mums, approximately 210 merkins, with about 280 yds of bear crawls.
Mary: flutter kicks, 100’s
Namerama: Stalker, Flo, Goose (respect), Hospice (respect), Adjustment (respect), High Stick, City Slicker, Limp Hose, Space Cowboy, Pretzel, Milton, Fanny Pack, Peg, Good Times, Sprinkles, Sugar Mountain (rucker), Floppy, Bee Wax
Pledge, Announcements, Prayer Requests:
Devo: “But above all, my brothers, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation.” James 5:12
My take-aways here: 1. Nothing can be misinterpreted when you answer a simple “yes” or “no” when asked a question possibly intended to trip you up. This is important when dealing with our kids, when giving a deposition, or when giving instructions to contractors, for example. 2. The more people swear they are telling the truth, the more I am convinced they are lying. “I swear on a stack of Bibles…” 3. As men, yes needs to mean yes, and no needs to mean no. Let your word be your bond. Complicated oaths are not necessary.
