Doing a CFP workout in light of the end of College Football Playoff and to give the PAX an experience of kicking Field Goals under pressure in the gloom: Not as easy as it looks, says Laces Out!
C-“Catch Me If You Can”
Partner up with who you did Finkle Swings with. Pax 1 does 10 merkins while Pax 2 does Bernie Sanders on the track. When Pax 1 completes merkins, he jail breaks to catch Pax 2. Switch places and rinse/repeat around track for one lap!
Start in corner of one endzone on football field with 10 merkins OYO. Mosey 100 yeards to other endzone corner. Hold plank until six arrives. 10 LBC’s OYO and jail break to other corner of that endzone. Hold Al Gore. 10 Imperial Walkers IC. Mosey 100 yards to opposite endzone. Hold Al Gore. 10 Squats OYO.
Rinse and Repeat adding 10 reps each circuit (i.e. 20 each exercise, then 30 each exercise) as run to Four Corners between exercises.
After each circuit of Four Corners, Pax took turns kicking field goals in the dark under pressure of Burpee penalty for missed kick while others watched! YHC experienced this pressure at the college level and thought it would make for fun morning! Each kick was from Extra Point distance (20 yards). We went 5 of 13 with lots of Burpee penalties…5 burpees for close miss and 10 for bad miss.
At end of workout, YHC attempted 40 yard FG and naturally was “wide right.” One of my nicknames as a kicker!

Psalm 91:1 says “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, ‘My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.'”
Challenged the Pax to trust in God, our rock and fortress…our rescuer and redeemer. We go through tough times in our life and we need His shelter and refuge. Shared my testimony of coming to faith in Christ in the corner of an endzone in high school and how my life was transformed forever! Let’s live for Him today and trust in His goodness.
