Today is a day we will all remember and #NeverForget. YHC saw that today was open on the Urban Legend Q sheet and decided to take it. This workout was designed to be challenging from beginning to the end and hopefully it delivered. The goal of the workout was to get to 403 reps which is how many firefighters and police that perished on that day trying to save lives. Below is what we did in honor of all those who fell that day.
One minute warning, no FNGs, disclaimer, and prayer.

Filled With Love
The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. (NIV) ( 1 Timothy 1:5 )
The purpose of listening to others teach the Bible is that we all would be filled with God’s love and grow a genuine faith. It is important to make sure the teachings we hear, the books we read, and the media we consume helps to grow in our faith and leave us with a clear conscience. What we allow influence us makes all the difference on the condition of our spiritual life.
