CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Whatever I said wasn’t what I wanted to say.  But God is not meek his is strong and he is always strong.  He wants us to be meek at times, so that we can depend on one another and more importantly depend on Him.  He wants us to be strong for one another. There have been far too many stories lately of men not reaching out and it ending in dire consequences.  We as HIMs need to make sure we are reaching out too and being God’s light to these men.

MOLESKIN:
Props to Junk for coming out even though he is on IR

  • Jump Squat

Afterwards, we found a battle buddy and stood opposite them in a line. Pax A Bernie’d as fast as they could for ~20 yards. When Pax A hit the 20 yd mark, Pax B sprinted to catch up with Pax A turning around to join the sprint once caught. Total sprint ~50 yards. We did two rounds for each team member and then Indian moseyed bac

SSH x20 IC
8ct Body Builders x10 IC
Tempo Merkins x10 IC
Tempo Squats x10 IC

THA-THANG:
Mosey to the base of [fill in official name of hill upon decision].

Split into 2 teams. Each team has an identical pile of exercise cards.
One extra-large size die with numbers 1,2,3.
One team rolls the die. That’s the number of laps up the hill and around the rock.
While that team runs the laps, other team works through the pile until laps completed.
When entire team returns from laps, other team rolls.
When pile is complete, set up a cone as a counter and start again.
See how many times each team can work through the pile.
Pile exercises:
15 Merkins
15 4-ct Monkey Humpers
10 Iron Mikes (each leg)
10 Squat Jumps
10 Burpees
20 Flutter Kicks

15x Side Crunch IC (each side)

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
16 HIMs – Twice the number as last time for this workout.
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
“Don’t try to carry that dang thing by yourself!”. We’re trying to get the house ready to pack up. Lots of heavy things to lift and move. Sometimes I listen to that admonition from my M, sometimes I don’t (usually to my later regret). Whatever it is you’re trying to carry on your own, quit trying to carry that dang thing by yourself. Jesus said “Come to me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me.” He didn’t say “saddle” or “harness”. Those are for a single animal. The yoke is a shared burden. Two oxen work together. He’s not saying you should pick up his load instead of yours. He will pull alongside you, and teach you how to pull properly. He’s strong enough to pull any load.
MOLESKIN:
OK, we’re working on a name for the hill up to the rock… Stay tuned! Also, hybrid Coffeeteria and OTB weight workout at 10818 Sallings Rd this Saturday…
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Hardship Hill coming soon – If you’re not registered, you should be! Abridged OEW benefit night Thursday 5/9.
