Just a simple sweat to start the Freedom Celebration! QIC gave a detailed welcome with a full disclaimer followed by a short promise of fun. And just to make sure, the QIC reminded the PAX that the 4th of July is to celebrate America’s birthday in case they forgot.
Quick Mosey to the field, half a lap
Worlds Greatest Stretch
QIC told the PAX to get a partner (“you will need them later”) before announcing a Burpee Lap!
1 lap of the field
PAX will do Burpees in each corner of field
3, then 6, then 9, then 12
SSH for the 6
Next, get your partner.
1 partner does Bonnie Blairs (20) & Monkey Humpers (20); partner #2 bear crawl to the 18 and then broad jumps back to the baseline. Flapjack
Army Frogs! 1 Partner does a merkin, army crawls under Partner #2’s legs, then leap frogs Partner #2. 5 reps. Flapjack
1 partner Squat Jumps; partner #2 lunge walks to the 18 and back. Flap jack
Enough with this child’s play on the field – time for Hills for Thrills!
Mosey to the bottom of the Widowmaker Hill
1 Partner runs up to the top and back; Partner 2 works. Flapjack
Round 1 = dips
Round 2 = Mt. Climbers
Round 3 = 1 partner reverse runs up, 20 bupees at the top. Partner #2 does 20 burpees at the bottom; reverse run to the top
Always – SSH for the 6
The PAX was so excited after round 1 that it was only 7:30 and we had 30 more minutes of fun!
Now that everyone was warmed up, we did a quick mosey to the ballfield / playgroup area. Time to play 4 corners
In 4 groups, at each corner perform several exercises
Corner 1 = 30 merkins
Corner 2 = 20 dips and 20 step ups
Corner 3 = 10 burpees
Corner 4 = 5 American Hammers
SSH for the 6
Lastly, quick mosey to the field, 1 sprint on the long side (Pinky showed some serious speed) and we finished with 2 minutes of Mary.

What a beautiful way to kick off the holiday weekend. It’s truly a joy to surround myself with such men. We are so blessed to live in a country like America. Let us never forget the sacrifices made for our freedoms. Thank you King Jesus for calling us sons; may we live and lead like you – with humility, grace, and a yearning for your Kingdom.
