THE THANG

Before the PAX moseyed to the tee ball field, Gipper explained the rules for The Thang.

There will be six innings. At each base (aka a piece of paper), there is a list of exercises, the number of reps, and the exercise to advance to the next base for each inning. If one group passes the group in front of them, the group that passes the other has to do 30 burpees as a penalty. Luckily, no one passed the group in front of him. After returning to the base each group started at, they have to plank or Al Gore until everyone is finished. After each group has gone around the bases and returned to their starting base, the PAX will mosey around the perimeter of the infield. The PAX then moseyed to the tee ball field. The exercises are as follows:

Prayer

Prayers for Mulch’s 2.0s for healing of their ailments.

Prayers for Lemon Law in his move to Kearney and his future career.

Gipper shared his COT about Lemon Law and what Lemon Law means to F3 and to YHC. Today’s Thang was a tribute to him. The Thang was the same one as my VQ workout where Lemon Law was my CoQ. He even picked me up when I forgot to mention the disclaimer. He taught me how to make a back blast and how to design workouts. We wish him the best in the next chapter of his life.

Until next time,

Gipper
