Deck o f Pain with Field Goals
52 card deck with the following exercises for each suit:

Hearts: Burpees, Diamonds: Big Boy Situps, Clubs: Merkins, Spades: Squats

# of card = number of exercise for that card; Face cards = 11 and Ace = 12

Circled up and had one pax pull a card and do exercise on the card. Go around until complete circle, then take turns kicking field goals (2 pax at a time) while others do Imperial Walkers, Lunges, Squats, etc. 5 Burpee penalty for a missed kick. Back to the circle and deck of pain: rinse and repeat until all cards are pulled and everyone attempts FG. We went 50% on kicks made. Total of 50 burpees on penalty.




Talked about suffering and pain we experienced with the deck of pain and then read “Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” Romans 5:3-5

We all go through rough patches in our life. Today, we suffered through the deck of pain which produced endurance. We push each other in our workouts and develop character to be better men. God takes the suffering of our life and produces endurance, builds character and ultimately gives us hope. Let’s walk in hope and grow in our faith today.
