Good group showed at Hollywood to get in a little Monday work.  No FNGs short disclaimer.  SSH, IW, Don Q all x 10 IC.  Pledge

Only two ways at of the parking lot, Q takes the exit nearest the intersection as we often do.  PAX got to pay attention though, Q heads opposite the normal direction.  A gravel track exists behind the school at the baseball field.  Q has used the track one other time a few months back, but that was a day with few guys present.  I don’t think anyone else has ever used it, so most were probably not aware that the track exists.

Get to the track and call a progressive workout.  Start with 1 burpee, 1 merkin, 1 jump squat, 1 LBC, and increase by one at each turn.  Do three laps so we finished with 12 reps or each exercise, 78 reps total.  Nice work.  Head to the back of school and partner up.  Dora with 100 big boys, 200 flutters, 300 American Hammer.  Partner does a lap.

Head back to front of school for two rounds of 10 step ups each leg and 10 dips.  Time.

Q reading a book titled Raising a Modern Day Knight by Robert Lewis.  Books is about fathers raising sons, but offers many good excerpts that can apply to us all.  One in particular is his take is what it means to be a man.  Lewis is four charcteristics define what it means to be a man: 1) Reject passivity – don’t just talk, act 2) Accept responsibility 3) Lead courageously, 4) Expect the greater reward – God’s reward.
