  • The PAX: Skid Mark, Full Monty, Bloomer, Mulligan, GNC, Slash, Gizzard, Gravy, Deuce, Zamboni, Prunetang, Tackleberry, Down Pax from Alabama PIXAR

14 Pax gathered at Badlands.  It was a great morning.  We got to see some faces we haven’t seen in some time and we were joined by PIXAR down from Alabama.  The message — In all things of life we fail.  It’s how we react to that failure that matters.  When failure is used to build on it creates strength, success, energy, and a stronger foundation.  Michael Jordan said “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed.  I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

Warmup – SSH, LBACF, LBACB, Inclined Plank, Inclined Merkin, Cindy bench press. Mosey to the lot.

Furball with Cindy including side step squats and Man-Makers.

The Thang –

Line up across from your partner each partner has their own Cindy.  Manmakers until you or your partner fails, sprint to the concession entrance, toy soldier to the first pole, sprint to the building, 20 LBC’s, 20 step-ups, 20 arm dips, sprint back to the blocks. Bent-over rows until you or your partner fails, repeat the concession drill, sprint back to the blocks.  Grave-Diggers until the group fails, repeat the concession drill, sprint back to the blocks.  One volunteer — Zamboni was quick on the draw, Curls for the gurls until Zamboni fails, repeat the concession drill.  Kettle block swings  until the group fails, Sprint to concession, 20 LBC’s, Sprint to the blocks.  Mosey with the blocks back to the circle.  Round of stretches, Count- O – Rama, Name-O-Rama, Announcments—Check slack, Prayer Requests — Continued prayers for Dennard, Heisenberg, Prayers for Gravy’s friends ministering in Ukraine and for the unspoken.

Great Work Gents!
