Teamwork makes the dream work

4 Pax, no Q, a moonlit sky and a thirst for muscle disruption were the ingredients for the special on the menu Tuesday morning. No wasted time, thought or worry, we went right to it. All agreed, 25 reps per exercise callout. Depending on your stance, we circled clockwise to begin the procession for the next 44 minutes.


25 reps per callout, in no particular order.

Proverbs 30

Sayings of Agur

30 The sayings of Agur son of Jakeh—an inspired utterance.

This man’s utterance to Ithiel:

“I am weary, God,
    but I can prevail.[a]
Surely I am only a brute, not a man;
    I do not have human understanding.
I have not learned wisdom,
    nor have I attained to the knowledge of the Holy One.
Who has gone up to heaven and come down?
    Whose hands have gathered up the wind?
Who has wrapped up the waters in a cloak?
    Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is his name, and what is the name of his son?
    Surely you know!

“Every word of God is flawless;
    he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
Do not add to his words,
    or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar.

“Two things I ask of you, Lord;
    do not refuse me before I die:
Keep falsehood and lies far from me;
    give me neither poverty nor riches,
    but give me only my daily bread.
Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you
    and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’
Or I may become poor and steal,
    and so dishonor the name of my God.

10 “Do not slander a servant to their master,
    or they will curse you, and you will pay for it.

11 “There are those who curse their fathers
    and do not bless their mothers;
12 those who are pure in their own eyes
    and yet are not cleansed of their filth;
13 those whose eyes are ever so haughty,
    whose glances are so disdainful;
14 those whose teeth are swords
    and whose jaws are set with knives
to devour the poor from the earth
    and the needy from among mankind.

15 “The leech has two daughters.
    ‘Give! Give!’ they cry.

“There are three things that are never satisfied,
    four that never say, ‘Enough!’:
16 the grave, the barren womb,
    land, which is never satisfied with water,
    and fire, which never says, ‘Enough!’

17 “The eye that mocks a father,
    that scorns an aged mother,
will be pecked out by the ravens of the valley,
    will be eaten by the vultures.

18 “There are three things that are too amazing for me,
    four that I do not understand:
19 the way of an eagle in the sky,
    the way of a snake on a rock,
the way of a ship on the high seas,
    and the way of a man with a young woman.

20 “This is the way of an adulterous woman:
    She eats and wipes her mouth
    and says, ‘I’ve done nothing wrong.’

21 “Under three things the earth trembles,
    under four it cannot bear up:
22 a servant who becomes king,
    a godless fool who gets plenty to eat,
23 a contemptible woman who gets married,
    and a servant who displaces her mistress.

24 “Four things on earth are small,
    yet they are extremely wise:
25 Ants are creatures of little strength,
    yet they store up their food in the summer;
26 hyraxes are creatures of little power,
    yet they make their home in the crags;
27 locusts have no king,
    yet they advance together in ranks;
28 a lizard can be caught with the hand,
    yet it is found in kings’ palaces.

29 “There are three things that are stately in their stride,
    four that move with stately bearing:
30 a lion, mighty among beasts,
    who retreats before nothing;
31 a strutting rooster, a he-goat,
    and a king secure against revolt.[b]

32 “If you play the fool and exalt yourself,
    or if you plan evil,
    clap your hand over your mouth!

33 For as churning cream produces butter,
    and as twisting the nose produces blood,
    so stirring up anger produces strife.”

Pray for M’s and 2.0s



EZ joined YHC for a short mosey around the block to get the blood moving.  When 0530 hit, 6 more had already won the war against the fartsack to emerge from the gloom to prepare for war.

No FNGs were present and apparently YHC hadn’t scared off Monday’s FNG, Sausage, as he too was among the gathered.

No FNGs = No disclaimer, No warnings, No nothing….lets get to it.

We worked our way through a Tesla style warmup, concluding with 15 merkins.  If you don’t know what that is, go ask Uncle Ted or better yet, attend one of his workouts.

Mosey to Fidelity Bank via Old Neal Hawkins Rd for some war with the Deck-o-Death.

2 teams of 4

A member of each team draws a card.

High card wins. – Do it the F3 way
Low card – Face value.
Ties – Do Both F3 way.

After each member of the team goes, mosey around the bank before starting another round.

Can’t recall exactly how many times we got through,.. When time got short, the cards were gathered and we slipped out the back to get to the “Flag” on time.

(Pay no attention to the suspicious white car, nor the fat cat that had appeared at the rear of the bank)

Wedged in the Pledge of Allegiance and that is time.
