Conditions: Warm and muggy
Tha Thang: 8 faithful posted on a blanketish day for an atypical Q. Usually I like fast-paced, moving quickly from one highly-varied exercise to another, using all body parts. But, sometimes it is good to focus a little more, and relentless repetition (with variations) can be a good thing, especially for a fit crowd like the Legion pax who can breeze through anything less than serious focused punishment.

Devo: Body idolatry. God gave us our physical bodies for a purpose, and He wants them treated and used properly. But, many of us (looking at YHC) make an idol of our bodies and our training. We are to use our bodies primarily for His glory, and also for the building up of the body. Examine yourself, why are you training? Are you trying to help eliminate bodily sins by disciplining yourself? Are you helping your brothers? Are you waiting for the 6? Are you pridefully wanting to look good at the beach, or are you wanting to be trained and ready to be used by God? 1 Cor 9:26, Prov 21:25, 1 Cor 6:12, Matt 6:17, Mark 9:35, Ep 6:10, 1 Pet 1:24-25
