15 Wisemen gathered on a warm and rainy Saturday to callus their bodies and minds. Here’s how it went down
Warmorama
24 SSH
12 merkins
12 squats
10 Imperial Walkers (not planned but I couldn’t think of anything else at the time :joy:)
WMH’s
3 good mornings
Follow the Star of Bethlehem
PAX completed the following exercises at each lamp post:
atomics, squats, WW1’s
We started out at 5 reps each, then increased by one rep at each lamp post. We finished the loop at 15 reps per exercise.
Modes of transportation between the lamp posts – mosey, lunge walk, bear crawl x2, shuffles, burpee broad jumps, craw bear, sprints x2
After 1 loop, we traversed through the creek to the Christmas tree. When we arrived, I learned that most of the PAX executed 10 creek merkins, so YHC reluctantly followed suit.
Mary
Flutter kicks
10 burpees
Box cutters
10 burpees
Freddie mercuries

Mosey back to the parking lot, at which point @Operation pulled a @Kwame-style snipe and passed me on an inspiring dead sprint to the parking lot

Shout out to @Foosball for leading the rucking pre-party in preparation for the Nashville Go Ruck Tough. Whoever hasn’t signed up yet needs to do so!
Moleskin: Mark 6:34
When Jesus went ashore, He saw a large crowd, and He felt compassion for them because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and He began to teach them many things. When it was already quite late, His disciples came to Him and said, “This place is desolate and it is already quite late; send them away so that they may go into the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves something to eat.” But He answered them, “You give them something to eat!”
don’t wait for or rely on others to make the world or your environment better. YOU take the initiative and be the change you want to see. May we all be obedient to God’s daily plans for us.
This was one of my all-time favorite beatdowns. Thanks for gutting it out in the cold rain with me. We all accelerated.
