Q: Barn Door

22 PAX arrived at the Flags and heard the Core principles, Mission, and disclaimer. 

Warm-a-rama consisted of a lap around the neighborhood, 15 IC each: SSH, Tappy Tap, Imperial Walkers, and Cherry Pickers

The Pre-THANG

We repeatedly failed, but grew from it. 

  1. Merkins to failure, followed by Al Gore until all have failed.
  2. Monkey Humpers to failure, followed by LBC until all have failed.
  3. Flutter Kicks to failure, followed by Shoulder presses until all have failed.

The THANG

Football field suicides

  • Goalline: 30 Air Squats
  • Bear Crawl to first light, then 20 Big Boys
  • Bernie Sanders back to goalline, then 30 Air Squats
  • Crab Walk to second light, then 15 Burpees
  • Sprint back to Goalline
  • Rinse and Repeat

The Post-THANG

We rinsed and repeated failure, but grew from it. 

  1. Merkins to failure, followed by Al Gore until all have failed.
  2. Monkey Humpers to failure, followed by LBC until all have failed.
  3. Flutter Kicks to failure, followed by Shoulder presses until all have failed.

“Omaha” was called and the PAX gathered back at the shovel flags for Mary.

  • Fine Print led 15 IC Boxcutters

Circle of Trust:

“Growth always includes the risk of failure.”

“Sometimes what we call failure is really just that necessary struggle called learning.”

We all try to avoid failure as much as possible, but really failure is growth, it is not a bad thing. The only way failure is bad, is when we don’t learn or grow or get stronger from it. Today you took your body to failure in multiple exercises. Did it kill you, no. Did it make you stronger, it definitely did! Keep pushing your body, mind, and life to the point of failure and I guarantee you’ll see growth in the end.

“Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will”

Cheap Seats led us out in prayer.

Aye!
