SSH, Arm Circles, Tempo Merkins, Tempo Squats, Cherry Pickers, walked over to the parking lot
We did 5 rounds of crossing the parking lot, from the first stripey thing (which we decided is in fact the technical term for it) to the second at the other end. There were 4 cones along the way, each of which would mark a break for a different exercise each round. Also, each round we had to travel using a different form of exercise (bear crawl, broad jumps, etc.)
- Round 1: Bear Crawls – Cone 1: 10 x Burpees, Cone 2: 15 x Hand Release Merkins, Cone 3: 20 x Plank Rotations, Cone 4: 25 x Merkins
- Round 2: Broad Jumps – Cone 1: 10 x Lunges (each leg, 20 total), Cone 2: 15 x Flutterkicks (4ct.), Cone 3: 20 x Box Cutters, Cone 4: 25 x Smurf Jacks
- Round 3: Crawl Bears – Cone 1: 10 x Inch Worm Merkins, Cone 2: 15 x Shoulder Taps (4ct.), Cone 3: 20 x Overhead Claps (4ct.), Cone 4: 25 x Cobra Merkins

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
At church Sunday the guy preaching quoted Ray Ortlund saying “You can either be impressive, or you can be known. But you cannot be both.” I’ve been thinking about that a bit recently. I think we’d all, at least to some degree, say we’d prefer to be impressive rather than known, but I also think we all realize that being known is much more important and beneficial to ourselves and others than being impressive. This also reminded me of 2 Corinthians 12:9 where Paul says that God’s power is made perfect in his own weakness, and therefore we would gladly boast about his weaknesses. In order for us to grow, improve, and positively affect the world around us we must first be honest and vulnerable with each other and especially with ourselves, identifying our weaknesses and shortcomings so that we can continue to work on them rather than hide them in order to appear more impressive than we really are.
