Wait for the six at the top….to the tune of some Mary….thanks for keeping things moving fast guys, see you at the top.

Back in the ancient Greek days, the Spartans also enjoyed tequila.  They’d get silly and have backwards races, which contributed to their svelte calf muscles passed down through the generations .  Sadly, it’s been lost to history and is no longer a recognized Olympic event.

Pair up….first to go begins running backwards while the other does 10 calf raises.  Once complete, calf raise guy sprints and catches up to running backwards guy.  Rinse, repeat, rinse repeat all the way to the parking lot where we started.

The Thang 3.0

Let’s get those beer muscles going.  Gorillas are also known to fancy tequila.

25 reps of each….

  • Curls
  • Overhead Press
  • Skull Crusher
  • Rows
  • Elf on the Shelf (26 for good measure)

Almost done….let’s finish with 25 more curls.

Done…Back to the Flag.


Praise to Stu and his wife….all of their children have now made it through college and the most recent also has a job lined up!

A quick prayer for all striving to be better husbands, fathers, leaders in the community…additional prayer for those across the world dealing with illness, covid in India.
