9 Rounds with Shoestring – Black Ops

THE SCENE: Gaisman Park!  YHC had to walk 100 yards to the park.  I now know how Slicnut feels being able to walk into the gloom.

YHC was inspired by a Bruce Lee workout I found online but slightly modified so death did not come upon us.  Even with the modification, death nearly came upon us.
9 Rounds with Bruce Lee
The goal was to complete 9 rounds of the following:
– Pull-ups x10
– Hanging leg lifts x10
– Burpees x10
– Squats x10
– Box Jumps x10
– 200m run
Rinse and repeat…

(Side note: Nobody finished 9 rounds.  Four Eyes was the closest with 7 I think. We also modified the pull-ups.  We all nearly died.)

4 PAX came to Nutbush, a.k.a Berclair to do hard things.

YHC read from Matthew 16 where Jesus asks the disciples, “who do people say I am?” and “who do you say I am?” There was a conversation YHC had with the 2.0’s the other night that led to personal conviction.  Do I truly live my life in a way that declares what I say with my mouth of who Jesus is?  Do I actually act like Jesus is the Son of God?  Do I love others in light of what the gospel has done for me?  Not always.  It was a gut check for my spirit when talking with my 2.0’s and motivation to set an example for them on what a life with Jesus as Lord really looks like.  I fail often, but I hope to be a better example and leader.

Sooooo thankful that the pax came and worked out with me.  We took our picture in YHC’s front yard with the Puerto Rican flag in the background.  Great Black Ops at Gaisman.  This AO has tons of potential.  I believe Heavyweight, Meatball, and Bookworm would love the convenience and so would YHC!!

I also loved the smaller workout of 4 pax!  Led to some awesome and honest prayer request.  Really encouraging watching Teacher’s Pet smack around that routine! There was ZERO quit in him today!
