Due to the lack of props, lights, signs, or custom tee shirts I was accused of mailing this Q in. But truth is, I empowered the pax this morning. In true foreman style I delegated exercises giving power back to the masses.
Honestly, I didn’t have time to plan much but wanted the morning to be simple and tough. A you-vs-you challenge
Thing 1: A game of 21
We line up at the end of the newest parking lot in front of HT. I Placed cones about 50 yards away. We did 20 merkins ran to the cones did 1 big boy sit-up. Ran back to the end of the lot and did 19 merkins. Ran back to cones did 2 sit-ups. Repeated these exercises thru…18-3, 17-4, 16-5, 15-6, 14-7, 13-8, 12-9, 11-10, 10-11, 9-12, 8-13, 7-14, 6-15, 5, 16, you get the picture.
Thing 2: Power to the Pax
We jogged over to the side/back lot, lined up as a group on the line of the last parking spot, one person called out a exercise, everyone else did the exercise while the one guy ran across the lot and back. We got through 7-8 guys calling out a exercise then running across the lot.
The crew felt empowered and together. There was an incredible feeling in the air. True team building exercise.
Zoo led us through 10 Catalina wine makers. After the 8th, it was almost like we were moving as one. Poetry in motion!
I had a blast working out with everyone this morning! I thought it was tough so hopefully you feel the same. As always, it’s an privilege to lead this group of men at 5:30am!
We circled up
I ended with a brief message.
It was a great morning!
Until next time…
