    • With about a 20 minute time span I think we all had around four rounds completed.
  • Wrap Up & Warm Down:
    • With all the usual focus being on strength training and toughening each other up – I contrasted that with an encouragement towards gentleness and softness.  Handed out Lyrics to David Crowders new song “He Is”  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvvKa9vyixw .   We stretched out during the playing of the song as we read the lyrics.  Do not forsake or forget Jesus’ gentleness and kindness.  As High Impact Men we are often encouraged to be tough – and though that is important – I believe it is our gentleness and softness that is the most attractive and alluring and inviting to others.
    • If you’re troubled
      Heavy hearted
      Come to Jesus and find your peace
      If you’re run down
      Empty handed
      Come to Jesus and find your strength
      He is Hope for the hopeless
      Rest for the weary
      Help for the hurting
      He is, He is
      Mending the broken
      Bearing the burdens
      All that you’re needing
      He is
      If you’re wandering
      In the darkness
      Come to Jesus and find your way
      If you want freedom
      Need forgiveness
      Just come to Jesus and find His grace
      He is Hope for the hopeless
      Rest for the weary
      Help for the hurting
      He is, He is
      Mending the broken
      Bearing the burdens
      All that you’re needing
      He is
      Comforter, Counselor, Prince of Peace
      Author and Maker of everything
      Defender, Deliverer, King of Kings
      He is, He is
      Helper and Healer forevermore
      Savior and Shelter through every storm
      My Refuge, Redeemer and Lord of Lords
      He is, He is
      Child of Heaven and Son of Man
      Provider, Protector, the Great I AM
      Alpha Omega, Beginning and End
      He is, He is
      Hope for the hopeless
      Rest for the weary
      Help for the hurting
      He is, He is
      Mending the broken
      Bearing the burdens
      All that you’re needing
      He is
      All that you’re needing
      He is”

Dog Pound Tree Biscuit

  • Welcome: 43 degrees –
  • Warmup:  10 SSH, 10 Windmills, 10 Cherry Pickers
  • Workout:  The Tree Biscuit
    • As a group, Run to an un-slapped tree, slap it, everyone call out the running burpee total,  do A single burpee, repeat.
    • Rules:
      1. One Tag: A tree only gets tagged once
      2. Scale = Skip: Skip a burpee if you need to but stay with the pack always.
      3. Tag Turns: Be sure to take turns tagging/slapping a tree
      4. Cadence Call Out: The group also calls out the running total, not just the tagger. The tagger calls it out first though. the louder the better.
      5. No Shrubs: Don’t waste time & energy on shrubs – skip the shrubs – tag the trees
      6. No Poison Ivy: Pass trees that are surrounded by shrubs, ivy, waist high grass.
      7. Terrain Caution:  Be careful when running not to twist and ankle – trees have lots of bumpy roots around them.  And don’t hit your face on a rock or root when doing a burpee in the dirt.
      8. Milestones Celebrations: At 50, 100, 150, 200 make sure the group catches up and circles around the tree, wait a few seconds. Do the burpee.  Celebrating these milestones adds to the encouragement factor.
    • Previous Tree Biscuits:
  • Wrap – up:
    • The Spirit and the Flesh struggle:
      • Romans: 7:19 For the good that I want, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want. 20 But if I am doing the very thing I do not want, I am no longer the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me.
      • Galations 5:17 For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please.
      • Numbers: 15:39It shall be a tassel for you to look at and remember all the commandments of the Lord, so as to do them and not follow after your own heart and your own eyes, after which you played the harlot,

“Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him! Fear the Lord, you his godly people, for those who fear him will have all they need. Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the Lord will lack no good thing.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭34:8-10‬ ‭NLT‬‬
MOLESKIN:
Went to Vegas on a business trip this week and everyone I mentioned it to laughed and said stuff like “sin city”, “what happens there stays there”, and “try not to lose your shirt” in an approving and joking manner.  Having battled sexual sin and the temptation of pornography in media most of my life… I see sin as no laughing matter.  As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, I choose to battle my sin on my knees looking to a good and loving Savior who willfully died a brutal death on the cross to free me from the power of sin.  Encouraged the PAX to pray for and help those fighting various sin and temptations in their lives.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Take out the trash.
We listened to Christian rap today during the workout.  As we physically removed trash form the Catholic campus, we spiritually removed trash from our lives.  Garbage in = Garbage out.  I challenged each of us to find the trash in our lives that impedes us, and to remove it.

John 2:13-22


Jesus overturned tables in the temple.  He took out the trash.  When confronted with things in our lives, look at how Jesus handled situations, and model your response after his.  If something is not right, we should follow his lead.
MOLESKIN:
Pray for East Knoxville.
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
We are collecting for Safe Haven.  There is not a more appropriate   time to consider helping the East Knox Community.  Here is one way we can assist.

Hey Fellas. For the month of April, we are going to be collecting items at the AOs for Safe Haven, a program of the World United Ministries (www.worldunitedministries.org) led by Laurence Williams in East Knoxville. The ministry is in the trenches trying to steer the really at risk kids in the Austin-East community into good choices and away from gang life.  Safe Haven, a donated house on Magnolia Avenue, is meant to be a place where kids can go and hang out, and also escape violence when needed – it has bunk beds available.  F3 Knoxville will be providing them with the following items:
                                                                     
* individually wrapped snacks
* individual bottles or cans of soda, Gatorade or water
* paper towels, Clorox wipes, trash bags
* toilet paper
* Visa gift cards in small denominations ($10-20) 
* Bath towels and twin bed linens.
