My 2.0 (just turned 6) has been asking me when he can finally come to “daddy’s workouts” so a nice summer morning was finally his chance! Had to come up with something creative that he’d be able to hang with.


Classic Norseman Warmo with SSH, Weedpickers, and Hillbilly’s in the main parking lot. Head down to the pile-o-coupons to pick up a coupon for the thang.

The Thang:

2.0’s current favorite sport is baseball, so we picked up a baseball-themed BD on the football field. PAX split up into 2 teams. One team Bats, the other team fields. The BD essentially was made up of each team performing exercises based on how many bases were given up - with incentive (less reps) for better baseball. For the fielders, giving up a single was 10 reps, double 20 rep, triple 30 reps, etc. And vice versa for the hitting team (or something like that). Switch after three batters. 1st Inning - Curls and Bear Crawls 2nd Inning - Lunges and Jump Squats 3rd Inning - HR Merkins and Burpee Broad Jumps Run a lap in between each inning. The math only kind of sort of made sense and we started making things up at the end. Key skill of a good Q… flexibility!


Back at the flag, our new and youngest FNG was aptly named… Chapter 12. Continued prayers for Maytag’s recovery, and also for TO’s uncle.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Colton (now Chapter 12) complained the next day after getting out of bed, not easily able to bend over and put his clothes on! Coming out to the Norsemen was probably the hardest physical workout he’s ever had, and maybe one of the first times that he’s even been sore. As his dad, I loved him being able to come out and see a group of men modeling how to challenge, encourage, and sharpen one another. Living life in community the way it is designed to be. Thanks Norsemen!
