March Madness free throw

Hold plank for shooters (5 shooters)

Make – 5 merkins merkins

Miss – sprint down and back + 10 merkins hold for next shooter

Shooters:

Greek Freak missed and realized his balls don’t bounce as high as they sadly once did. 

Folsom missed and everyone new that top 2 shooters were really letting them down. 

Biff brought the spirits back up with beautiful form (granny style) and made the basket. 

Betamax gave his best sports ball shot and hit the backboard.

Finally, Smashmouth was inspired by Biff’s make so he followed suit and made his granny shot as well. 

Total: 3 down and backs and 40 pushups to end the Post Thang

The workout was time to end, Omaha was called and the group ran back to the shovel flags.

  • Be inspired by others and get excited about it – find someone who does something big or small and use it to motivate yourself or others to be better – wife no fear to donate her kidney- be more selfless, busy crazy Costco traffic and they just decide to let you and the next person in- release control of the uncontrollable, daughter at recess was being pulled into drama and she just says I’ll go play with someone else- don’t get caught up in small unimportant disagreements. Just keep going.
  • Keep your eyes open for inspiration.

Tator Tot proudly led the prayer and the Pax rushed out of their to get warm and to drink their coffee.
