5/31 Backblast: Black Ops at St. Al’s

For my VQ, I wanted to give the PAX a well-rounded workout. Trying to find a good mix of upper, lower, abs, and cardio. Obvious answer: burpee box! Plus some other fun tricks.

Conditions: ideal. 68, partly cloudy, light breeze.

Some guys know that I am one of the pastors at my church. Not a sermon, but left the PAX with a thought to take into the day: two verses from the Apostle Paul. Some people call it the “Manhood Mandate.” 1 Corinthians 16:13–14 says, “Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.” Something here for everybody. Whatever you face down today, there is some part of this verse that will help you to serve others and grow as a man.

Intentions: Butcher’s mom, Pope, Abacus’s M.
