Held Al Gore for six after each round.
Partnered up in pairs for a DORA style workout
100 Lunges (hard count)
PAX 1 does 10 lunges while PAX 2 holds plank; switch until 100 have been reached in total
200 Monkey Humpers
PAX 1 does 20 monkey humpers while PAX 2 holds wall-sit/Al Gore; switch until 200 have been reached in total
PAX 1 does 30 squats while PAX 2 does SSH; switch until 300 have been reached in total
In between each round (100 to 200, etc.), each PAX ran one lap around the parking lot area.
Once pairs finished, we proceeded pyramid style and worked our way back through to 200 monkey humpers and 100 lunges using same rules as above.
With 1:00 left in workout, all PAX stopped DORA exercises and performed Merkins AMRAP for the entire last minute.
Shared with PAX that I am currently doing a Bible in One Year Plan for 2021. It starts with Genesis and Matthew and goes through the Old and New Testament. In reading Matthew 13, Jesus offers up the parable related to planting seeds in the hearts of others. He wants us to use our potential and gifts to plant seeds in as many others as possible during our lifetime. IMHO, this seed planting starts at home and only then can it ripple throughout communities. Sometimes planting a seed is hard. Whether it be with kids, spouses, peers or strangers. As a parent, I try to sow the seeds the right way in my kids. As a spouse, I try to sow seeds the right way in my wife. As a man of God, I try to sow seeds the right way in the paths of anyone else around me. But like in everything else, I inevitably come up short sometimes of what God is calling for.
It is important to remember to keep sowing seeds during the good and difficult times of our lives. We must remember also that not every seed will bear fruit, but some will yield greatness. Once we have planted to seed, it allows Jesus to begin to affect the lives and hearts of those around us in a more profound way than we can imagine. Keep praying and keep planting those seeds. Jesus is always with us and the potential we have to share his good news among those around us is an incredible gifts.
In closing, I asked PAX to remember this: A seed that is not planted has a 100% chance to die. Always plant seeds even when you don’t feel like planting them.
Tons of good MC today from the PAX. For starters, it was brought to my attention that Bur-kin is just a fancy name for 11s. Creativity is not Q’s strong suit, that’s for sure. But hey, atleast this version of 11s didn’t involve running back and forth.
After discussion, turns out many of us are likely qualified to be the next football coach at Tennessee. Resumes are being prepared.
I only got one “this is stupid”. Was hoping for more. Coldplay missed his opportunity to help us meet this quota.
“Leg” acy translates to “might not be able to walk later”. Again, Q lacks many levels of creativity skills but is able to produce dad jokes on the spot with no hesitation.
Lastly, one PAX mentioned the squats were in such an abundance that he could likely crack an acorn open with his rear-end. This is not one of those activities where the saying “picture/video or it didn’t happen” comes into play
