Fourteen PAX met on this fine fall morning for a KISS bootcamp.


Arm circles OYO while standing on one leg.  

During this warm up I shared some words from I Timothy: “Train yourself to be godly.  For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things.”  On that note, I made it a goal for us to memorize a Bible verse while we worked out.  I went with James 1:3, “Consider it pure joy, my brothers, when you face trials of many kinds.”

10xDaisy pickers IC, Skip in place OYO, then 5x merkins OYO.

We then moseyed over to the pull up bars for the beatdown.

The Thang:

We split into four groups and did the following.

Pull up bars: 20 side pull ups.  

Top of Hoffa: recite verse (James 1:3) then 20x seal jacks. 

Base of Hoffa: 20 hand release tuck jump burpees.  These were the beast of the morning.  After finishing these, bear crawl or crab walk over to the SHOP.

SHOP: 20 mountain climbers.

Rinse and repeat for five rounds.  Four exercises, 100 total reps each.

Several PAX impressively finished all five rounds.  I finished four full rounds with the fifth sets of seal jacks and burpees.

NOR: Hot Box, Bloomer, Sparrow, Gummi Bear, Big Mac, T-Bone, Shiplap, Saga, DaVinci, Panhandle, Beaker (Welcome back!), Jolly, Wet Burrito, and Tortuga (Q).

COT: Lifting up Noodles and family as his dad has passed away and Archive’s family as they adjust to life with their new 2.0. Praise God for bodies that work and men to push us onward and upward.
