I am not a professional, modify as necessary. We leave no man left behind and we leave no man where we find him.
PAX moseyed one lap around the track and circle up on the south end of track. We began the workout with 20 side-straddle-hops in cadence, 15 Cherry Pickers, 12 Tappy Taps, 10 Big Ones & 20 Imperial walkers all IC. This concludes the Warm-O-Rama, let’s head to the turf.
PAX split off into groups of 3. One on the goal line, one on the 20 yard line. The third was either doing butt kickers or high knees in the middle depending on the direction. The 3 alternated in standard push fashion. PAX members on the goal line did AMRAP Hammers. PAX members on the 20 yard line did AMRAP Merkins.
PAX split off into pairs. Partner 1 performed Burpee ladders at 15 yards (1 burpee), 30 yards (2 burpees), and 45 yards (3 burpees). While partner 1 was doing burpee ladders, partner 2 was doing AMRAPs of a number of exercises that alternated between arms, abs and legs.
At 6:05 called Omaha and PAX moseyed back to the shovel flags.

Life has its ups and downs. We all go through a season of life when we are challenged, a death, sickness, job change, disagree with a friend, etc. I was listening to a podcast yesterday called UNPACKIN’ it with Bryce Johnson. He was interviewing Lenoard Hamilton, Florida State’s men’s head basketball coach. He was talking about when adversity strikes and mentioned the phrase, Emotional Intelligence. How are you going to respond when something bad happens? His favorite bible verse from this is;
James 1: 2-4
2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 And let perseverance have its full effect, that you may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing.
This is a great reminder that;
It’s never going to be easy. It’s not supposed to be. Life is good and then bam you get hit with adversity. Don’t give up. It’s how you respond that determines the future you create.
