8 Pax braved the 22 degree temps in the frozen badlands of Five Stones to help celebrate YHC birthday beatdown. Little did we know one pax would bring a gift we would all share.
DiCCS given – 1 cell phone, no CPR certified pax, watch for cars coming in for bible study, disclaimer
Warm Up: Mosey to the far end of the parking lot, circle around and head back towards the shed, everyone grab 2 coupons and head back to launch point.

The Thang: In honor of YHC 41st Birthday, the workout would consist of an exercise of 41 reps, followed by a mosey down to the far end of the parking lot and back after the completion of each exercise. Mary on 6. Here’s what we did:
21 Man Makers w/ coupons, 41 Squat Curls, 41 2+1 bear crawl/ carolina dry docks, 41 partner sit ups w/ 20lb ball, 41 jack lunges w/ weight overhead, 41 air punches w/ coupons, 41 bench presses, 20 Man Makers w/ coupons.
Mosey back to shed to drop off coupons. Mosey back to launch, low slow squats until time.
The Moleskin: My goal was to keep the heart rate up given how nippy it was out, hopefully that was met. According to Fusebox’s watch, we covered 2.1 miles plus the 7 exercises of 41 reps. Some of the pax talked about lighting up the fire pit pre workout it was so cold. At the start of the third exercise, Chainsaw thought it a good idea to fire up his own dutch oven and present us with a hot and steamy air biscuit. Little did we know this gift would quickly freeze, drop to the ground like a hockey puck and linger for eternity. Perfect timing too, this was at the outset of partner sit ups. Don’t know the lucky guy who got to partner with Chainsaw, but I’m sure in the back of his mind was the fear of a second batch coming out while being mere inches from the oven door.
Everyone worked hard. Glad to know that when I called a timeout during the 41 2+1 bear crawls/dry docks, I wasn’t the only one who needed it (someone shouted out a loud ‘thank god’, for a moment I thought it was coming from inside the church). Thanks to Banjo and Chicken Little for leading us on the final 20 Man Makers. I was in a haze of sweat and pain and lost count after 8 or 9. Thank you for the opportunity to lead this fine group of men. I’m humbled by the generous spirit that enables each of us to grow and serve one another. COT – Banjo took us out.
