Spackle’s Smoked Shoulders

What an honor to Q at Graveyard this fine fall morning that felt like the dead of winter.  After three days of rain, the pax were just glad nothing was falling from the sky.  YHC wanted to keep the guys moving this morning but also really wanted an upper body beatdown.  Sorry Spackle for no LBC’s.  Also, apologies to Spackle for not using more of the AO.  He seemed real bored with this mornings beatdown.  Below is what went down.

Conditions: 32 degrees, wet, wind out of the west northwest at 3 mph.

1 minute warning

Mosey toward the press box and stop for COP: All x 20 and IC

Mosey to brick pile and each pax get two bricks and carry for the duration.
According to Wingback, these are just two little bricks, “can’t be more than two pounds”.

Group up in teams of three and mosey back toward the stairwell that goes to football field for the Thang: Shoulder Smoker
A circuit workout where one team member will perform exercises up top and another one on the football field.  The other teammate runs from the top to the bottom to relieve the man on the field who then runs to the top to relieve the man doing exercises.   The man on the field is AMRAP’ing an exercise with bricks and the man up top is completing sets of 25 reps of exercises.
Round one: Top 150 Dips, bottom tricep extensions
Round two: Top 150 Decline merkins, bottom curls for the girls
Round three: Top 225 Incline merkins, bottom overhead presses

Mosey back to brickpile to return the bricks.

Mosey to flag for a quick Mary:

YHC normally does a devo, after hearing and talking prayer request, I felt moved to pray and forgot.  Cobains.  Below is what I was going to share.

Devo: Trusting God’s Faithfulness, Charles Stanley

1 Thessalonians 5:16-24

Is there something God has told you to do that seems too difficult? If He has called you to carry out His will, you can trust that He’s faithful to accomplish it through His Spirit living and working in you. So if you tell Him, “I can’t do that, Lord—what if I fail?” you’re actually doubting that God keeps His word. And yet, our total expectation should be in Him—not in our own energy, ability, or experience.

When you doubt God’s trustworthiness, unbelief becomes a gap in your spiritual armor, and it is where Satan wants to attack you. You’ll begin to doubt other elements of God’s character, such as His goodness—and distrust will become baggage that’ll weigh you down in every area of life.

You might feel that you do not have enough faith to obey, but the Lord isn’t asking you to trust in favorable circumstances. He’s asking you to believe that He is who He says He is.

It’s easy to doubt God when you’re focused on the obstacles in front of you, but when you fix your eyes on Him and believe what Scripture says about His faithfulness, then you can do anything He requires. No matter what lies ahead, remember that God is not a liar, and He is faithful. You’ll be strengthened by your dependence on Him—whether a deluge of trials or a flood of blessings comes.

It’s actually when life gets rough that you’ll recognize the reality and sweetness of God’s faithfulness. As you walk through those storms in complete reliance on His strength, your trust in His character will become part of who you are and provide strength from within.
