21 pax crush the PT test, man-makers, and then thrust their way to a strong finish…

21 pax arrived in the gloom to take on the PT test and then partake in a beat down at the hands of YHC.  YHC’s M has started working out again and while he sat back on the couch while she was doing an exercise he thought…”Hmmmm…that looks like a good exercise, I’m sure the pax would love it!”.  This exercise is known as the Man-maker.  As many know, YHC loves burpees, so naturally he would love another rendition of a burpee.  The Man-maker can be done with or without weights, but as F3er’s we naturally do the harder thing to get better and be better.

So while holding two equal weights you start in the standing position w/ feet spread shoulder width.  Squat down like you would with a burpee and then kick your feet back (the weights are on the ground, hands on top of them).  Then you do a row with your left arm, then right arm, do a merkin, thrust feet forward and go up into a squat position, and then finally thrust up with the weight overhead.  That is one rep.  Easy right?

Weather: 47° w/ some pax dressed for more frigid conditions

Acts 20:35-38 In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

YHC completed his second GORUCK event this past weekend.  The group split into three groups with his group taking on the hardest challenge of the event.  YHC stressed that everyone that joined that group helped the team survive and make it through.  Their decision to be part of that group helped relieve a burden from everyone else.  Had any of the group decided to go to another group, it meant more “good livin” for everyone else.  You never know what impact your decisions will have, doing the harder thing is not always a bad thing and the reward when finishing it feels that much better.  Do the harder thing, continue to EH men around the community, you never know the difference that it will make in their life.
