Gavel started the day with a healthy warm up, he took the bootcampers.

Eight exercises, four with a block, four not.  Blockies, chest press, shoulder press and swings with the block.  Jump squat, burpee, hand release merkins, and flying squirrels without bloc.  20 reps of each.  After 20 reps of all exercises, bear crawl to end of parking lot and back.  Rinse and repeat.

Got through most of three rounds.  Wanted a little time for a quick lesson and one more push.

YHC robbed one of the big blocks from the tennis courts at sacred heart.  This one weighs in over 50 lbs.  We nicknamed it Goliath.  Saturday, July 9, was my brother’s 56 birthday.  Nine years ago he had a cancer diagnosis.  The cancer was a Goliath for him.

We do what we do to exercise out bodies, but there is great value too in the mind set of learning to push through hard things, and forming relationships along the way.   None of us know when we will face a Goliath in life.

The story says that Goliath came to the battle line 40 consecutive days, so our mission was to squat thrust Goliath 40 times.  Everyone conquered his Goliath that day to help be prepared when the next Goliath arises.

Always an honor
