Falling Indian Run (count to 3, do burpees off to the side of the line until the rear of the line reaches you and then fall in) to the Coupon Pile and then over to Freshman Hill. Partner Up and do the following:
|DORA on Freshman Hill
|Bottom of Hill
|Top of Hill
||5 x 4-ct
- Q called recover and return CMUs to coupon pile, doing a wall sit until the all PAX at on the wall. Guardrail for *SOME STRANGE REASON* did a quicker than normal 10-count.
- Black Snake back to the AO.
All PAX got in a tight circle while the Q explained what “Thunderstruck” meant and how we were going to modify it to be BOLD & JUICY
Exicon explanation of Thunderstruck: “Q plays “Thunderstruck” by ACDC. PAX complete 1 standard Merkin for every “thunder!” that is heard in the song. Plank during the rest of the song. Awesome way to end a workout and just make sure any juice that’s left is burned away.”
BOLD & JUICY “Thunderstruck” modification:
Start the song with pickle pounders.
When they start saying “thunder” go into plank and do 1 merkin every time it’s said.
Hold plank until at the end of the first verse when he says “thunderstruck.”
For the rest of the song when he says “thunderstruck” do 1 burpee.
After the first thunderstruck, the Q led the following changes to exercises at certain points in the song:
BBS until the first “shaking at the knees”, doing burpees as they say “thunderstruck”
Flutter kicks until the second “shaking at the knees”, doing burpees as they say “thunderstruck”
BBS until the last round of “thunderstruck” starts and do burpees until the end of the song.
PAX were exhausted and the Q *might* have gone over 1-minute on time (my plan even said I was 1-minute over but I was trying to be BOLD & JUICY with what I’d planned for the workout)
COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
21 PAX (2 left early + 19 pictured + 1 Pool Boy behind the camera)
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Last week in the JUCO GroupMe @Curveball posted a photo of this beer and asked “Side business @Pool Boy?”. The next comment about the subtext of the IPA from @Anchorman made me decide to absolutely include it in my BOM: “Bold and Juicy”!!!!
I was already thinking about the following passage, but with Leap Day tomorrow (2-29) that we ought to be BOLD and JUICY. What does this mean? Let’s look at Ephesians 5:15-18 to find out what I’m thinking Scripture says:
15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit,
This passage calls us to be BOLD by walking carefully and making the best use of the time and to be JUICY by drawing people in through understanding what the Lord’s will is and by being filled with the Spirit and not wine [or Pool Boy beer!].
Ways PAX can be BOLD: Sign up for course or a test you need to take (educationally or professionally), train for a marathon, trying to be a HIM day in and day out, have “the talk” with your son/daughter, confessing sin to your wife, serving at your church without being asked, talking to your neighbor who is clearly in need of a friend, and even sign up for your VQ / next Q!
When I think of being JUICY I’m reminded of what Jesus said in Matthew 5:13 – “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.” and what Paul said in Colossians 4:6 – Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person. We’re called to live in such a way that people should constantly be drawn in to us because of how we’re different in living out our lives not for ourselves but for Christ. That we would emanate His love, grace, and be the aroma of life.
Ways PAX can be JUICY: Talk about Christ with your coworkers and seek to lift them up in prayer in their presence and on your knees when it’s just you and the Lord, immerse yourself in the Bible and let it pour into and out of your soul, spend time praying and fasting asking that God would give you more of a heart for the things He wants you to do, speaking with kindness and compassion to those in need because Christ is your Savior, listening to that one guy who nobody wants to listen to but you know God has put in your life to minister to and love and even as 1 Thessalonians 2:8 says “So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us”, and much more!
Remember, you only have one “today” as Ephesians 5:15-18 reminds us. Walk carefully. Be wise. Don’t get drunk but be BOLD and be JUICY!
