The Thang

Mosey on down to the bottom parking lot for the thang — YHC wasn’t feelin super creative but this is a beat down nonetheless. The PAX were instructed to grab a “Dwayne”  or a rock — you get it.
Booboo Box (alternatively called Bearbox)
YHC likes to bear crawl — take the simplest of routines and throw a bear crawl in there and its a beat down. That is precisely what we have here. PAX were instructed to bear crawl from corner-to-corner around the perimeter of the parking lot. At each corner performing an exercise, each lap increment the exercise by 5. Bear crawl is where we get booboo. Like from Jellystone. You get it.

LBC x 60


As a man was passing a pair of elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at any time, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.
He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”
The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

We are able to accomplish, we are able to excel, and we are able move not just ourselves but the world around us. What lie is in your mind that is holding you back? Find that lie and challenge it. Pull on that rope and pull hard. Don’t let the perception of a challenge keep you from gettin where you want or need to be.
