Mosey up the Greenway with log on right shoulder, left shoulder and overhead, stop every 2 minutes or so and do one of the following exercise with the log: Front Squat, overhead press, situp, deadlift, back squat, merkin with feet on log, floor press, toe merkin, sit-up. Having covered about a mile and 30 minutes, stop at the grassy area under the pine trees for phase 2

Log flip Dora:
Each pair of men to complete 100 merkins, 200 Big Boy Sit-ups and 300 squats while the partner flips the log end over end across the grass alternating each 25 yard crossing. Log flip requires a clean and press to get it over.


Just a reminder to persevere. We are all in this life for the long haul. Each day has plenty for us to take care of, but we can’t go all in and burn out. Keep the long view and know that our life is in God’s hands and he is in control.
BALL OF MAN: Congregation of two or more men in physical contact, usually (but not exclusively) in the prayer that terminates the COT. Abbr: BOM]


That was a good challenge and most everybody agreed that we could do it again.
