Mosey to middle to campus for the first round of ladders.  The ladder is performed by starting with 20 reps of an exercise and then running to a designated location.  Perform 19 reps and then return to the original location.  Repeat until you reach 1 rep.  There are 3 squarish areas.  The first corner and the opposite corner diagonal from the start of the second square will be the exercise locations.  Squats will be the first exercise.

Next, mosey to the stairs behind the maintenance building and grab a coupon.  Here we did a modified ladder and started with 20 curls at the bottom of the stairs and 18 merkins at the top, decrementing each exercise by 4.

Final stop is at the large parking lot southwest of campus.  We did a suicide style series here with 20 flutter kicks starting at the light pole.  When then ran to the next parking bay and back for 20 more flutter kicks.  Repeat to each parking bay down to the next light pole.

Mosey/jailbreak to the shovel flag.

Phil. 2:3 – Being selfish is probably the biggest problem in the world. Take traffic for example.  If everyone was courteous and gave people more space to drive, I theorize that virtually all traffic problems would be non-existent.  We can accomplish this by being less selfish.  Put others before yourself and be part of the solution.

YHC is probably one of the worst at socializing.  I don’t seek to develop relationships, but they are needed. I encourage everyone to get out of their comfort zone and try to make good friends because we need them to lean on sometimes.

One of the most difficult things to do is parent.  It is a big responsibility and I struggle every day.  I am reminded of Proverbs 22:6 – “Train a child up in the way he should go, and even when he is old he will not depart from it.”  To be honest, I am scared that I am not training my children the way I should and I am fearful of where they will be one day because of the influence I had.  I encourage you to share your experience with others and encourage them to lead by example and truly consider how our lives impact those watching us.

Matthew 5:43-48 – love your enemies as well as neighbors.  God doesn’t play favorites like we as humans tend to do sometimes.  Strive to be “perfect” like God and treat even our enemies with love and we might just win them over to follow the Lord.
MOLESKIN:
This workout was meant to be a pyramid, but due to YHC’s forgetfulness, no one had a chance.  YHC meant to have a nice large-print page with all the exercises written down so that everyone could move at their own pace.  Instead, we were limited to a cell phone.
ANNOUNCEMENTS:

None today.

Matthew 7:13-14 – “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.  For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

We can be “all-in” with our faith, but if we have errors in our convictions, we can be one of the many mentioned above.  Paul, before he met Christ on the road to Damascus, was zealous for the Lord.  However, he was persecuting Christians!  Jesus corrected Paul and he became one of the biggest influencers for the Church.  Consider the things you hear about God and the Bible and study them to make sure they are true.  Always seek the truth!

Planning in the works for upcoming CSAUPs.  Look for announcements about 2nd F lunches in Oak Ridge!
