In talking with one of my 2.0s about what it is to leave boyhood and become a man, we googled the definition of “A Real Man.”  I was pleasantly surprised to see what Urban Dictionary had to say as their first of many definitions:

A “​real man​” is the what you young folk might call old-fashioned. Chivalry​ is ​not dead​! A real man has manners, is polite, and considerate. He is honest and open and true to himself. He will fight for and defend the people that he loves. He is a hard-worker. He is not spiteful.

He respects women and shows appreciation for all of his blessings. A real man is the provider of the family. He is strong, physically and mentally, and is never too proud to exhibit strong emotion. Once committed, he is faithful to only her.
He does not watch porn or disrespect her in any other way. He helps with ​housework​ and is a role model for his children. A real man knows who he is, what he wants, and is grateful for what he has.

If you are ​25​ and living in your parents ​basement​ you are not ​a real man​.

Words for today…​”BE A REAL MAN!”

Notes to self…1. When shuffling with a ruck…a GR1 with a 45lb plate is not preferred.  2.  When doing squats with a ruck…a GR1 wuth a 45lb plat is not preferred.  3.  When doing dips with a ruck…you get the idea.

This was a great partner workout.  I have committed to doing pullups in every Q as I need to improve.

Crucible is coming to the Berm.  Get your mind right and be training.

Wednesdays going forward will have a 4:50 start for a 5k, pre-BC run.
