7 HIMS of the Rock Region gathered today at Old Town on a cool damp morning to push & encourage one another.  There were no FNG’s today so a brief disclaimer was provided and the PAX were reminded to challenge yourselves, encourage one another & have fun.  We began with the warm-up which included SSH, Seal Jacks, Imperial Walkers, Cherry Pickers & Windmills and then it was time to get after it –

The Thang –

We moseyed out of the AO and headed to the stage area at the fountain and began with a set of ATM’s to get the core and chest engaged.  Then we headed over to the other side of the fountain area where YHC explained that we were going to do an exercise, run a lap (about .30 miles) – return to the same area and add an exercise and rinse / repeat.  The exercises consisted of 5 burpees / 10 dips IC / 10 Merkins IC / 10 Dirkins IC / 10 Irkins IC / 20 LBC’s IC.  The last set of Dirkins was brutal and YHC cut off around 7.  Next we headed over the mini hot box behind City Hall and did people’s chair with shoulder – knees – toes IC followed by 20 squats and repeated the people’s chair.  Next we headed over to the ampitheatre area and did 20 step ups on the low wall OYO followed by sets of shoulder presses / seal claps / arm circles – a real shoulder burner.  Next we did about a 3/4 mile mosey the long back to the AO and on the long side of the parking lot we did a set of 7’s with Bobby Hurleys & Merkins.  Time was running short so we did a short mosey back to the AO where Walker led us in 50 flutters followed by a 1-minute plank to cool down.  Altogether we got in close to 4 miles with a full body workout

As we closed, YHC shared the following verse:

Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.  Proverbs 10:12

We talked about who in your life do you need to forgive?  Who do you need to show Grace to?  Walker reminded us that some people in our lives require extra Grace – EGR (Extra Grace Required).  Much in the same way that Christ showed us Grace, we must continually show Grace to others, forgive others.  For if we store up anger & resentment it will only hurt us.  Release it – let it go – give it to yourself – let go of the baggage you are carrying around

We closed out the morning with a few announcements along with prayers & praises

It was an awesome morning at Old Town.  Thanks Boomer for the opportunity to lead today – it’s always an honor to do so –

Ponytail out –
