With over half the PAX in attendance arriving 5:29:15 and 5:29:45 we did indeed start right on time. Took a simple loop around the parking lot back to the front of the stadium for a standard set of warm up exercises.
Headed into the stadium for a routine Manning introduced a few years ago….the Manaconda. Basically weave up and down through the bleachers doing exercises at the top and bottom. Right to left meant merkins (t0p) and dips (bottom). Left to right meant 4 count Merican Hammers (top) and Derkins (bottom). 15 reps of each exercise. We completed the home side and then proceeded over the visitor side bleachers for a rinse and repeat. The manaconda was an ode to Manning with a “Best of Rush” playlist blaring which paid homage to C4.
We headed back to the front for a round robin which included 4 stations. (1) 20 SSH (single count), (2) Donkey Kicks (AMRAP), (3) BTTW , (4) Plank Jacks (AMRAP). Station 1 set the cadence for when to rotate. Did three complete rounds.
Next up was a Tunnel of Love. First round each PAX did 3 Burpo’s before crawling through. Second round each PAX did 5 Monkey Humpers before crawling through. Third round each PAX did 5 Plank Jacks before crawling through. All PAX definitely agreed Tunnel of Love is much better in the grass than the sidewalk!!!
Finished up w/ 2 min of Mary to end right on time at 6:15.
Faith apart from works is dead.
“Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence?”
We spoke about the presence of God in all areas of our lives and about his love. The challenge was to think of someone within our concentrica that we can love just by being present to them in some way (small or big).
