  • QIC: Buoy
  • The PAX: Funny Car, Deflator, Buoy
  • 3 PAX showed up to #Ironclad ready to push both physically and mentally. Workout started with Warmarama; 20 Side Straddle Hops IC, 15 Dolphin Pushups IC, 15 Through the Tunnel IC, 15 Mountain Climbers IC, and 10 Forward/Backward Arm Circles IC. Following the completion of Warmarama, PAX wanted to pay tribute to their F3 brothers participating in the Colonial 200 by completing their own relay. YHC incorporated the Baton Death March with Burpees into the workout, which included two laps around the fountain. Once relay was complete we moseyed back to the Flag to begin strength training. Flora was feeling extra thrifty today and offered up her 60lb Concrete Metric Unit (CMU) coupons; one for each PAX. The first Flora workout consisted of the Shoulder Press 100 reps OYO, Erkins 100 Reps OYO, Squats 100 reps OYO, and Standing Row 100 reps OYO. The Second Flora workout consisted of Bench Press 100 reps OYO, Curl 100 reps OYO, and Lunge 100 rep OYO. After 20 reps in each exercise the PAX had to run 50 yards to the tree line and back to continue their reps up to 100. Now that we were finished utilizing Floras’ coupons for strength training, PAX moved right into Circle of Pain (CoP) Abs which consisted of 25 reps each IC of Leg Lifts, Big Boys, LBCs, and Flutter Kicks.

    Back to Flags

    Circle of Trust
    YHC read from the bible Titus 1: 7-8; “Since an overseer manages God’s household, he must be blameless, not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, and not pursuing dishonest gain. Rather he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined.”

    These verses depict the characteristics that the elders of the church should possess. However, these characteristics I believe should be demonstrated throughout our daily lives. I struggle with being quick-tempered and because I am able to admit that struggle, I can effectively work at building up that specific characteristic. Don’t let your ego take control.
