The Thang

Balance is what this group was about. All muscle groups, all PAX involved.
Block based workout uses the extra weight to make the simple exercises completed compound the betterment!

• Etc … all lines counting up to 10 reps of each thing on the last round.

• When your done, pick up with the six.

• Mosey to exercise area – circle merkins while one guy does 5 pull ups.

• Hold plank – plank variants: one arm up, leg up.

• Circle of squats – one guy does 5 dips.

• Hold Al Gore – focus on form.

Boundaries: I don’t know enough about them to even structure a good COT, but I do know we need them dearly. This was just an encouragement to find where you need yours. See other parts of your life that seem in balance and figure out what you value their that makes you take the effort of saying no to unbalancing things. Seek the help of older and wiser men around you, too.  Seasons change and so too will your balance need to change, so get int he practice of finding your center everyday and asking yourself what balance looks like that day – then flexing throughout the day to let it happen.


The thing that simultaneously makes a bootcamp so much better and worse: #coupons
