THA-THANG:
We did a loop shuffling with a stop in the middle for 20 merkins, 20 thrusters and 20 curls (I did 10). Then we did a loop with the twins and sandbags. Everyone carried something. The person with the twins carried em until they couldn’t no mo then swapped with someone with a sandbag. We did another loop of PT, another heavy loop and one last loop of PT. With limited time left we went up lovers lane and dropped our rucks for at least 1 minute of hang time. Rucked back down to SP. Got 5 miles and lots of smiles.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Repeat from last week at RAW. Wanted my BS boys to hear this.

6 exercises to improve mental toughness:

  1. Get rid of extrinsic motivators – no music, no training partner. Suffer in silence alone
  2. Develop good habits – Mentally tough people are more consistent than you. They create habits and relentlessly stick to them
  3. Learn to ignore things you cannot control – Stoicism is the ability to endure pain and hardship without display of fellings and without complaint
  4. Ruck – put a heavy pack on and go walk for hours.
  5. Farmer carry – pick up some heavy shit and go for a mile walk.
  6. Hang – grab and pullup bar, a tree branch or some playground equipment and start a timer. Work up to 60 seconds.

Reverse arm circles, tempo squats, tempo merkins , SSH in reverse  start at 20 and go to negative 5. Pax fell apart at 0…..which is funny due to all the smart/engineers at the BS. Pinocchio was the only one I believe to keep counting from 0- negative 5.

  • Once we made it to mt Crumpit , 7s . At the base , do one monkey humper , Bernie up to Crumpit and do 6 WWII sit-ups with your head downhill , Bernie back down . Rinse n repeat until reps of said exercise are flipped
  • Bernie back to AO
  • Bearway to heaven or Way bear to heaven !  Instead of bear crawl, we crawl bear the whole time. Pretty brutal !

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Ever felt like your going backwards in life and just can’t succeed? Well, I have but I think that’s ok and part of life. I believe if you always succeed in all that you do, you are not trying hard enough or challenging your self enough. You don’t know your limits until to take yourself to the limit and fail. Don’t be afraid of failure , embrace it when it comes and become stronger from it.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
KISS – Keep it Simple, Stupid
Sometimes we overcomplicate our lives unneccesarily. I find when things feel out of control complicated, I just need to take it back to basics. Merkins, Squats, Big Boys. When life feels too overcomplicated and I’m stressed out, I go downstairs and hit the pull-up bar, do some merkins or big boys. All of a sudden I can see a little more clearly. Exercise sharpens the mind as well as the body.
