I had the chance once again to Q at the best AO in the nation! I pulled in about 5 minutes early seeing roundup running with a weighted vest on, the mans a beast! In fact all those that showed are beast! 530 hits and we get after it!

Warmup! SSH, Toy Soldiers, Hillbillies

The Thang! Partner up for deadlifts and merkins! I made some bars a few years ago, where you can hook a Block on each side and do deadlifts, they haven’t been used in a while and I thought today would be a great time to bring them out!

P1 -20 deadlifts, P2- Merkins X 4= 80 deadlifts and a bunch of merkins!

Then we circled up for 20 to 1 Blocks!          Each pax grab a block on my count, 20 reps of each exercise, then 19,18,17… down to 1! Ended up being 190 reps of each exercise! Which were…

Shoulder Press




These pax being the MEN that they are, killed it!

22 for the VETs!

Then we had a couple of minutes, I wanted to bring up the verse Def Leppard shared Monday morning at the  Sword.
1 Corinthians 16:13-14 Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men. Let all that you do be done in love.

1st Be watchful- Ps 119:105 says Gods word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path! How can I be watchful without Gods word?

2nd Stand firm in the Faith- what does it mean to stand firm? I looked it up, “ Hunker Down! Refuse to budge!” What an awesome visual! Your family and the people around you need this from you, STAND FIRM! To what is right!

3rd Act like Men- “Biblical Manhood Principles
1. Humility before his God

  1. control of his appetites! “ don’t cave to temptation “

  2. protecting his family.

  3. Providing for his family.

  4. leading his family.

4th- BE STRONG- I am week, but He “God” is strong! I have to rely on His power to be strong!

Last thing! “ Let all that you do be done in love!” Again, apart from Christ, I can’t do this! That’s why Paul tells us to crucify our flesh daily and follow Christ!

Announcements- Big Pappy is taking up children’s clothes and supplies to take to Jamaica! This man is going on vacation with his wife for their anniversary, and part of their time there, will be spent at an orphanage doing mission work! That is what a true HIM looks like like! If you have something to donate… get with him! We should be able to send him with a full load!

Wichita has his VQ this Saturday at Folsom! Come out, it will be terrible!

Prayer requests- my friend Fred Sisk, his wife is in her last days from a battle with cancer.

-My wife, Dr Seuss, and anyone else working in the school system, they put up with a lot!
-Our children
-Each other

Thanks for the opportunity to lead! I took us out.
