What better way to start a new year than to push yourself by doing something stupid? After all the definition of CSAUP is Completely Stupid And Utterly Pointless! So let's kick off 2024 with a workout only 7 hours into 2024!

  • SSH

Mosey to the bottom pointing out the location of the man hole half way up.

At the bottom go on to the next exercise and repeat.  A full challenge is 20 trips up/down and then 4 exercises at the bottom with no trip up.  20 trips up the hill, 24 exercises at the bottom.

We are all called to be leaders.  Leaders move their teams to advantage.  Moving requires a disruption to the status quo:
Disruption: Disturbance to the Status Quo
1) Leaders influence movement to advantage
2) Because it induces movement, leadership causes Disruption
3) A great leader's legacy is built on love
4) What are YOU going to change this year?

This group always inspires me!  27 guys left the fart sack on a day that people are expected to sleep in just to come and challenge themselves on a hill!  Attack 2024 the same way!
