CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Run wild. To risk everything. To hold nothing back.
To lay it all on the line: your reputation, your success, your comfort.
It’s that moment when fear is overcome by faith. Live free.
It’s not the liberty to do whatever you want whenever and wherever you want,
But rather it’s living in accordance with the author of humanity
And finding freedom by connecting with the creator who conceived you.
Let the light flood into your eyes for the first time.
Feeling the blood course through your veins, finding the truest version of yourself
By knowing the one who knows you even better than you know yourself.
Love strong. Because you were first loved. Because without love we all perish.
Because the earth and the stars can and will pass away, but love, love will always remain.

from”Oh God Forgive Us” by For King and Country

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
When I’m with my kids I often blurt out the risk I see them taking – “don’t fall off that wall”, “don’t spill that drink”.  Telling someone not to fall makes them think about falling and usually leads to them doing the very thing I don’t want to happen.  Instead, to foster a Growth Mindset I should tell them the Mitigation – that thing they can positively do to protect themselves – “Watch where you are putting your feet”, “Carry your drink carefully”.

As HIMs we should try to affect the people around us positively and help them to get better by telling them the mitigation, not make them focus on the risk.

MOLESKIN:
This was my VQ.  Thanks to the PAX for following my lead and swinging those rocks.  From my post Q high, I’d recommend it to all the HIMS at the back to step forward and do it!
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Everyone at the workout got their 100 squats in today.  Post them in the August challenge.

Get keys in the bag and mosey south toward 11th Street parking garage.  Once inside the garage, circle up for a super easy 3 minute workout.  Workout consists of alternating planks: high plank (front leaning rest/merkin position) for 15 seconds, followed by low plank (resting on elbows) for 15 seconds, then flapjack every 15 seconds until 3 minutes are up.

Slow mosey up the ramp to the next level of the parking garage for a Hot lap around that level.  Each exercise is a way to move to the next corner.  Jack rabbits wall sit while waiting on the 6 to complete each leg of the lap.  Exercises as follows:

  • Bear crawl
  • Duck walk
  • Burpee beam jump (at each overhead concrete beam, stop and do a burpee, on the jump portion you jump up and touch the beam overhead)
  • Inch worm

Mosey up another level for the four corners routine.  Simple run between each exercise.  Exercises as follows:

  • Box cutters x20
  • Alternating hand merkins x20 (10 each hand.  Start with one hand on the curb and one hand on the ground and perform a merkin, switch high and low hands each rep OR do 10 with one hand high then switch for the remaining 10)
  • Bobby Hurleys x10 (deep deep squat jumps – squat down and put palms flat on the deck, pause then jump)
  • Jump lunges x20 (10 each leg)

Rinse and repeat for three laps around.  Recover and 10 count.  Begin mosey back to start point.  Pause for squats while waiting on Preacher who took a wrong turn in the garage.
