The Thang:

Nice today…1st morning without rain or lightning!  Mid-70’s.  Humid tho.

It was YHC’s chance to lead the men at the New Directions Men’s Shelter and I was excited!!  The last 2 weeks have been strong with PAX support and with men from the shelter stepping up!  I was not disappointed today!

Welcome.  1 minute warning.  A bunch of flying EH’s from various PAX as men were wandering around, looking, wondering, thinking we were all maybe just a tad bit crazy.

Time to start!  Full Disclaimer given.  Emphasis on modifications for various levels not only of fitness, but certain physical limitations.  Get better 1 rep at a time.  You versus You.  Push yourself, but don’t get hurt.  Let’s have some fun.

The COP and the THANG kinda blended based on modifications needed

YHC is not a huge fan of 10 counts, but sometimes they are needed.  But talking 10 counts are great where the Mission is pushed.  Well, no better time than now.  Stick with your partner.  Walk, run, wheel, whatever you need to do, a quick lap or 2 and get to know that man – name, where he’s from, an interesting fact.  Fellowship!!!!

Alright, let’s circle up for the last few minutes and do some AMRAP!
60 seconds max Merkins
60 seconds max Flutters and/or LBC’s

– Awesome and strong work by everyone today!!  All men pushed themselves hard and got better today!!  Keep it up.  Keep the excitement up!!
– After some EH’ing last week, YHC was glad to see Lowery with us ready to roll.  He pushed through every rep and did an amazing job.  His #MumbleChatter game is strong too!!

– Too Tall really pushed the pace and amount on merkins.  #Beast
– Scout joined in after some major flying EH’s and despite some injuries pushed hard and did a great job!!
– Much like Shark Tooth, Wheels Up modified. But he modified leg exercises.  To dips in his chair.  Probably 500 of the darn things!!  And another merkin master!!!
