The Thang: Introduction
Welcome to Muscle Beach, is this anyone’s first time? I am Night Light and I am not a professional trainer, you can modify as needed but do not stop.
Warm ups in cadence = Side straddle hop, Mercins, Squats, Good Mornings
With coupons Squats, alternating push-ups, over the block burpees, beat the tire, flip the tire, carry the tire, pull ups, dips, jog around playground.
For fun, 100 mercins as a group. Bonus movement, overhead press the tires. Too Easy
COT: Count-o-Roma, Name-o-Roma

Moleskin: My First Deployment
I commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant on 12 August 2001, less than one month later our great nation was attacked. As I stood there all day watching the television, I started packing my gear and was ready to respond. But there was nothing we could do but watch. I did get called in to protect the local National Guard Armory but as we all soon discovered the enemy had slipped back into the darkness. The following year in October 2002 my unit was activated and we deployed to Kuwait. We were building defenses and staging areas for the incoming forces as we all prepared to move North into Iraq. We were not really sure if we would actually punch through at the time because rumors were that Saddam would surrender and there would not be a fight. So, six months into the deployment we did move North and it was freaking awesome. Tanks, trucks, helicopters, and jets flying overhead. The men and women in my Platoon were not scared, they were proud and willing to fight. 20 years later I have the same confidence in our men and women in uniform that they will deploy anywhere in the world to protect our Freedom. God Bless America!
Take a Knee: Father, we understand that turning our “Life” over to Jesus Christ is a once in a lifetime commitment, but turning our “Will” over to you is a daily re-commitment. In Jesus name, Amen.
