The BackBlast:

Intro:

PAX congregated in Edora Park’s parking lot talking a LOT about how sore we all were (including YHC). YHC is a man of the people and decided to change the routine. Just kidding…suffering makes one grow…

Warm-o-Rama:

SSH x 30 IC

String Rippers x 10 IC (nice and slow…because YHC cares!)

Shoulder stretches – left side…right side

Mosey 1 lap around the parking lot, across the bridge, onto the disc golf course, where PAX found a nice, steep hill…

The Thang:

Who doesn’t like ELEVENS!!!*

Bernie Sanders up the hill for movement #1: Shuffle Lunges**

Bear Crawl down the hill for movement #2: Kraken Burpee***

6MoM:

Omaha was called to ensure the full 30 minutes was allotted to COT…

COT:

The question posed at the beginning of the week: How did a recent hardship affect your person and your outlook?

YHC felt PAX took this question very deeply all week. The discussion was sincere and thought provoking! At the end, PAX all agreed “Contentment”, the 4th of 5 Leadership virtues was strongly at play. It is critical for us men to be JOYFUL and not seek HAPPINESS. As Flo correctly stated, happiness is a feeling and it comes/goes. Joyfulness is a state of being and can be forged.

I am so honored to and grateful to lead you men and thank you for the opportunity to serve you.

Naked Man Moleskin:

* Due to the 30-minute time limit PAX did not quite finish…YHC shouldn’t have been so soft with the slower stretches.

** Shuffle Lunges – in-place backwards lunge, come up and immediately do an in-place forward lunge, switch legs…this is 1 rep.

*** Kraken Burpee – 2 hand release merkins inside of a normal burpee (release the Kraken…get it?! It’s in the Exicon. I thought the joke listed was funny…)
