I copied this Q and BOM from a previous BB in June of 2021. I fully intend to only recycle Q’s and BOMs this year! Yes, I am going to take other people’s.
THE SCENE: Rainy – Meet at the Pav-A-Lon
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
I forgot my Weinke in the car so Tweet-E & Ribbed helped out. Then finished with some Tempo Merkins & of course – Cherry Pickers.
Welcome to TabaTa! Tabata = 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest. Each Tabata is 4 minutes or 8 total rounds. We did two exercises per Tabata. Each Tabata had a 1 minute Interlude in between.
- Tabata 1
- Imperial Walkers & Shoulder Taps
- Tabata 2
- Single Leg Burpee (no merkin) & Dips
- Tabata 3
- Pull-ups (assisted or hangs) & HRR Merkins
- Tabata 4
- Squat Hops & Crabbettes (I want to call it the Crab & Grab)
- Tabata 5
- Plank Reach Throughs & Side Raises (surprisingly difficult)
- Tabata 6
- American Hammers & Mountain Climbers
- I’m out of Tabatas so let’s run up to the gate and back. Also gives us street cred for working out in the rain.
- Tabata 7 (from the hip)
- DOMO Squats & BBS
- Tabata 8 (from the hip this time, not last)
- Hangs and Merkins
Broga – Stretch those hips & glutes out (we’ve not made any improvement on this)

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
From As a Man Thinketh – “A change of Diet will not help a person who will not change his thoughts. When a person makes his thoughts pure, he no longer desires impure food.” – James Allen
Stress eating, grazing, overeating, overindulging – call it what you will. This is something that I have struggled with for my entire life. Judge’s comments in the weekly newsletter motivated me to talk about it in the COT. A devotional or article that I came across in the last couple of months told me that when we surrender to Christ that we are FREE from all SIN in our life. Whatever we are holding onto is something that we haven’t yet surrendered. This is my stress eating habit. I was praying into it and felt like I was given permission to eat “all that is Holy”. What is all that is Holy? I ask God in a jokingly manner – “everything you pray over” is what came to mind next.
Man, what a realization!!?! I never pray over the handfuls of candy, or scoop(s) of peanut butter that I find myself eating. I never pray over my 3rd or 4th cup of coffee and never I have asked God to bless a 2nd helping of Ice Cream.
What if instead of just impulsively eating whatever carbohydrate or sugar laced item I can find… I said a prayer and asked God to bless it? Can it really be this simple? I tell you, like most rewarding things in my life. It is that simple, at least it seems to be, but it’s not easy. I wish I could tell you that I have absolutely mastered it and have given this sin away to be free once & for all from it’s grasps. Instead I tell you, that I’m in the middle of the fight. I’m in the battle. I’m still getting beat up. But… I’m glad to be in the fight!
According to James Allen, it starts with making my thoughts pure.
Tabata is great way to push yourself. It’s only 20 seconds of work… how hard could that be? Apparently there are some good Tabata Timers out there and I don’t have to use the prerecorded, covers that these dudes were jazzed about.
Wesley House workday coming up, Off the Chain – keep your brothers in your Prayers! <- This is not relevant lol
