Sparrow (11 years old) called out Cheatsheet (51 years old) for not doing a leg exercise.  Cheatsheet became animated and talked a bunch of trash.  Sparrow challenged Cheatsheet to a race, so after the workout was over, we did about a 100M sprint where Cheatsheet narrowly edged out Sparrow.  Cheatsheet was going crazy, and we reminded him that he beat an 11 year old in a race.  Good times were had by all!!!


No time for poor Mary


We are living in a world where God is not put first, and the world suffers from the works of the flesh.  We need to make God a priority, and exemplify the Fruit of the Spirit.


A Year In The Making

THE SCENE: A comfortable mid-50’s fall morning

4ct SSH (IC) x 25; 4ct Tai Fighters (IC) x 10 – forwards and reverse; 4ct Starfish Crunches (IC) x 10; 4ct Plank Jacks (IC) x 10; Mosey to the CMU pile in the alley

A killer few rounds of fun to be had:

Before beginning the first round of pain, murder bunnies for 25 yards and then rifle carry CMU back to starting line.  Repeat murder bunnies and rifle carry between each round and to finish off the killer workout.

Round 1: Alternate between exercise 1 (CMU dead lifts) and exercise 2 (SSH’s) running 25 yards between each set of reps.  Perform 5 reps of exercise 1, run 25 yards and perform 20 reps of exercise 2, then run back to starting line.  Now perform 10 reps of exercise 1, run 25 yards and perform 15 reps of exercise 2, then run back to starting line.  Perform 15 reps of exercise 1, run 25 yards and perform 10 reps of exercise 2, then run back to starting line.  Last set perform 20 reps of exercise 1, run 25 yards and perform 5 reps of exercise 2, then run back to starting line.

Round 2: Similar 4 sets of 25 total reps.  Exercise 1 is CMU bentover rows and exercise 2 is merkins.

Round 3: Similar 4 sets of 25 total reps.  Exercise 1 is CMU squat thrusters and exercise 2 is mother earth burpees.

Return the CMU’s to the pile.

Indian run formation to head back toward AO but start with planks instead of running.  6-man sprints to the front and resumes plank then next HIM in the rear sprints to the front – rinse a repeat as the formation inches toward the AO.  After much growing and clamoring, switch to Al Gores.  After a little more ground is gained, switch to Rocky Balboas.  Once the AO is close enough to smell it, switch to SSH’s.  Finally a jailbreak leads the PAX back to the AO just in time for a speed round of 10 SSH’s then 10 merkins back and forth in AMRAP/OYO fashion until the Q draws to an end.

Psalm 20:7 “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.”  Election next week has many divided and pitted against each other and causing undue stress and worry.  Trust in the Sovereign Almighty and know that He is in control – no matter the results of the election.  Do your civic duty and vote, but trust God for the result.  Join me in prayer on Tuesday while others watch the polls.  2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

Ezekiel 38:7

7 “‘Get ready; be prepared, you and all the hordes gathered about you, and take command of them.
Matthew 24:44
New International Version
44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.


Iron Pax week 1 on Friday begins at 0515
Mandolin is looking for some OTB partners for an evening workout.
Pringle has a friend looking for a substitute on a paper route.  This route only needs coverage so the normal carrier can take some time off.  Two weeks currently needed in October and in November.  The pay could be as high as $500 per week.  Let me know if you are interested, or know someone that might be, and I will put you in touch with Pringle.

James 1:12
Those who stand firm during testing are blessed.  They are tried and true.  They will receive the life God has promised to those who love him as their reward.

We are living through a test in 2020, there is a blessing but as God promises, we have to love him to take advantage of the reward.  To love God, we need a relationship, prayer time, studying his word, etc  How do you demonstrate love?  We need to put that into practice so that as we are tried or tested during this time or others, that through our love of God, we can receive the blessings.
