At this point YHC asked the PAX how many had been watching football over the weekend? Since most seemed to have seen at least some of the NFL action a few trivia questions seemed appropriate.

Question 1: Which NFL team has won the most Superbowls of all-time. A lot answers such as “Cowboys” and “Patriots” to “Yankees and “Alabama.”

Answer: Pittsburgh Steelers at 6.

THA-THANG:

Capri Lap around the parking lot.

Pax counted off into 2 groups. Pax line for 2 lines about 40 yards apart. 1 Pax runs with the football to the other end then hands off the football. That Pax then runs back in the opposite direction. Complete until both groups are on the opposite side from the starting line. The rule was that if the football hit the ground, all PAX performed 2 burpees. For some reason Granola thought this was fun and intentionally grounded the football not once but twice! 4 total burpees for all PAX.

Question 2: Which NFL coach has won the most games of all-time? Again, PAX came up empty. Don Shula at 347 games.

From Future Grace by John Piper
Atheism: the Ultimate Pride

When you take all three categories of temptation to self-reliance-wisdom, might and riches-they form a powerful inducement toward the ultimate form of pride, namely, atheism. The safest way to stay supreme in our own estimation is to deny anything above us. This is why the proud preoccupy themselves with looking down on others. “A proud man is always looking down on things and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you. But to preserve pride it may be simpler to proclaim that there is nothing above to look at. “The wicked, in the haughtiness of his continence, does not seek Him. All his thought are, “There is no God” (Psalm 10:4). Ultimately, the proud must persuade themselves that there is no God.

Twenty four oceans

Twenty four finds me
In twenty-fourth place
Twenty four drop outs
At the end of the day
Life is not what I thought it was
Twenty four hours ago
 
Still I’m singing Spirit take me up in arms with You
And I’m not who I thought I was twenty four hours ago
 
Twenty four reasons to admit that I’m wrong
With all my excuses still twenty four strong
 
See I’m not copping out not copping out
When You’re raising the dead in me
I am the second man
I am the second man now
 
And You’re raising these twenty four voices
With twenty four hearts
With all of my symphonies 
In twenty four parts
But I want to be one today
Centered and true
 
I’m singing Spirit take me up in arms with You
You’re raising the dead in me
I am the second man now
And You’re raising the dead in me
 
I want to see miracles, see the world change
Wrestled the angel, for more than a name
For more than a feeling
For more than a cause
I’m singing Spirit take me up in arms with You
And You’re raising the dead in me
Twenty four voices
With twenty four hearts
With all of my symphonies 
In twenty four parts.
I’m not copping out. Not copping out.

We tend to live our lives without regard to our own mortality. Yet nothing physical about us is immortal. Even the physical world around us has a lifespan according to scripture.

“Love is Manly”

You might have heard the phrase, “When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways” (1 Cor. 13:11).

You’d think Paul wrote this phrase right after his call to the Corinthian men to “act like men” in 1 Corinthians 16:13. But he didn’t. Instead he wrote it after a passage you expect to find ensconced in crochet or festooned on flowery greeting cards:

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Paul indicates there a came a time in his life when he grew out of an immature, boyish love and embraced a more mature, and dare we say, manly love.

If we’re going to love like Christ loved the church, we must let the boy die.

Boys retaliate quickly when hurt; manly love is patient and kind.
Boys require constant affirmation; manly love is not arrogant or rude.
Boys stew, stammer, and hold grudges when they don’t get their way; manly love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful.
Boys try to win every argument; manly love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.
Boys have a short fuse; manly love bears all things.
Boys write people off when wronged; manly love believes God’s best for the relationship.
Boys lose hope after they’re hurt; manly love always hopes for reconciliation regardless of the pain.
Boys expect to be served; manly love endures all things.

What’s one way to let the boy die in you this week? Endure a minor offense? Reflect on a criticism rather than retaliate? Serve in a tangible way.

At the end of his letter to this small church in Corinth, Paul wrote, “stand firm, act like men, be strong” (1 Cor. 16:13).

Then he says, “let all that you do be done in love” (1 Cor. 16:14). One of the manliest things a man can do is love in a manly way.

THA-THANG:
•all PAX took a Mosey around the parking lot, stopping in front of the bleachers that are  in front of the baseball field.

•the PAX lined up side by side to do flutter kicks. Starting on one end of the line a member of the PAX would grab two 25lbs dumbbells and complete 15 overhead presses as he continued doing flutter kicks. Upon completion of overhead presses he then passed the dumbbells on to the next man in line, where he took his turn, this was done until each man did 15 overhead presses while doing flutter kicks (even if you weren’t doing overhead presses you did flutter kicks).

•each man then found a spot on the bleachers and did 20 box jumps OYO.

•each PAX then did 15 dips IC.

•we all took a little Mosey to the first  light pole across the bridge over the big ditch near STARTEX.

•each PAX bear crawled the 40-50 meteres down a little sand pathway to a pile of rocks.

•each man then picked out a rock (appropriately sized) from the rock pile.

•there was a smaller drainage ditch adjacent to the massive ditch that had drainage holes with covers on them with about 30 meter spacing. The PAX performed 20 little baby crunches then shrimp crawled with their rocks to the next hole cover.

•once at cover number 2 the PAX did  20 little baby crunches (this was done at each cover) where upon completion they did imperial walkers as form of movement with their rock in hand to the next cover.

•once at cover number 3 the PAX did 20 little baby crunches and took a Mosey from cover 3 to cover number 4.

•upon arrival to cover number 4 all men did 20 little baby crunches and took off on another Mosey to the next cover.

•once at cover number 5 the men did 20 little baby crunches then shifted into a modified high knee as form of movement. Once a knee was brought up to your chest you extended your rock into a overhead press, we went from the last cover to a green trash can outside the small parking lot on the back end of the Morg (28 meteres away).

•the PAX then formed up in a line on the ground and began working on flutter kicks. The PAX furthest in line would walk up to a barbell holding 50lbs and do 20 overhead presses then step forward and pick up the 60lbs ruck and run the four corners of the parking lot and return. While whoever was doing the overhead presses everyone else did flutter kicks, this was done until everyone went through the line and did the overhead presses/run, except for the last few, due to lack of time, they got they’re fill of flutter kicks in return though.

•afterwords 50lbs was added to the barbell (100lbs in total) where two PAX would carry it back to STARTEX (one PAX on  each end with men rotating and switching out). While the two PAX were carrying the barbell the rest of the PAX carried their personal rocks along with the rocks of the men carrying the barbell. The was done until we got back to STARTEX, the rock carriers dropped the rocks off back at they’re place of origin and OJ showed us up by carrying the 60lbs ruck too.

“Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fall” -Confucius

“Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one” -Marcus Aurelius

”The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential…these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal success” -Confucius

Focus on the little details in your life. Improvement is made in the small and incremental shifts of habit. It’s the small things that will see you through. 1 Peter 5:10 says “and the God of all Grace, who called you to eternal glory in Christ, after you’ve suffered a little while, will Himself restore you, strong, firm and steadfast”

God hasn’t called us into His eternal grace for comfortable living, anything but, He’s told us quite the opposite. But through Him we are given the strength to ride the wave. What’s the point of coming out here and killing ourselves if we don’t put that same effort into our personal lives back home. God gave us the strength and perseverance to rise up and set the example of what we talk so ardently about being- High Impact Men. So let us not get bogged down in what is and what isn’t good, just make the incremental changes, make the shift. Forget not the blessings of strength, perseverance, integrity, honor, commitment. I take them for granted like so many others, but life isn’t about being like the “others” it’s about being your own man in God’s grace.

THE MAN IN THE ARENA by Theodore ” O Positive” Roosevelt

“IT IS NOT THE CRITIC WHO COUNTS; NOT THE MAN WHO POINTS OUT HOW THE STRONG MAN STUMBLES, OR WHERE THE DOER OF DEEDS COULD HAVE DONE THEM BETTER.  THE CREDIT BELONGS TO THE MAN WHO IS ACTUALLY IN THE ARENA *gloom*, WHOSE FACE IS MARRED BY DUST AND SWEAT AND BLOOD; WHO STRIVES VALIANTLY; WHO ERRS, WHO COMES SHORT AGAIN AND AGAIN, BECAUSE THERE IS NO EFFORT WITHOUT ERROR AND SHORTCOMING; BUT WHO DOES ACTUALLY STRIVE TO DO THE DEEDS; WHO KNOWS GREAT ENTHUSIASMS, THE GREAT DEVOTIONS; WHO SPENDS HIMSELF IN A WORTHY CAUSE; WHO AT THE BEST KNOWS IN THE END THE TRIUMPH OF HIGH ACHIEVEMENT, AND WHO AT THE WORST, IF HE FAILS, AT LEAST FAILS WHILE DARING GREATLY, SO THAT HIS PLACE SHALL NEVER BE WITH THOSE COLD AND TIMID *fart-sacking* SOULS WHO NEITHER KNOW VICTORY NOR DEFEAT.”

YHC leaves this here as a reminder on why we do what we do and the impact our actions have on our lives and the lives of those we hold dear:

Men should do hard things.

Together.

But, let’s face it-more often than not we don’t.

Men, with exception-albeit rarely-lack consistent fitness, meaningful male friendships and a defined purpose in our lives.

And we get hammered with life’s ups and downs and become complacent or just give up. We stop leading. We start thinking it’s just not worth the effort anymore. A hard truth is that an isolated man is a dangerous man-to himself, his family and to his community.

But we have 2 choices: Become the status quo or become High Impact Men (HIM).

So, let’s dig deeper into that. When men become the status quo-we become ineffective leading ourselves, our families and ultimately, our communities.

But for those who disrupt the status quo, what we call High Impact Men (HIM) become the strong anchors that our families and communities need.

So, where can men turn these days?

Take F3 Memphis as a good example.

With a proven track record of getting over 20,000 men across 20 states to step up into leadership roles, F3 Nation gives men a clear action plan to better themselves, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Free work-outs are provided. Open to all men. Held outdoor-rain or shine, heat or cold. Peer-led. Always ending in a circle of trust.

But what makes it effective and transformational is that F3 delivers on its promises by being accessible, providing men the opportunity to lead and fail in a safe place with no judgment, pushing men to their limits while encouraging them to modify as needed, providing an opportunity to build a healthy community to develop genuine friendships with other men, all while respecting one another for our similarities and our differences.

And the end result is evidenced by the men who commit to the process, core principles and come prepared to do the work.

Their lives will reflect healthier bodies (inside/out), more meaningful male friendships and a defined life’s purpose.

And for that we can all celebrate.

Iron sharpens iron. Aye!?!?

November 5th My Utmost For His Highest (Oswald Chambers)
…but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings… —1 Peter 4:13

If you are going to be used by God, He will take you through a number of experiences that are not meant for you personally at all. They are designed to make you useful in His hands, and to enable you to understand what takes place in the lives of others. Because of this process, you will never be surprised by what comes your way. You say, “Oh, I can’t deal with that person.” Why can’t you? God gave you sufficient opportunities to learn from
Him about that problem; but you turned away, not heeding the lesson, because it seemed foolish to spend your time that way.
The sufferings of Christ were not those of ordinary people. He suffered “according to the will of God” (1 Peter 4:19), having a different point of view of suffering from ours. It is only through our relationship with Jesus Christ that we can understand what God is after in His dealings with us. When it comes to suffering, it is part of our Christian culture to want to know God’s purpose beforehand. In the history of the Christian church, the tendency has been to avoid being identified with the sufferings of Jesus Christ. People have sought to carry out God’s orders through a shortcut of their own. God’s way is always the way of suffering— the way of the “long road home.”
Are we partakers of Christ’s sufferings? Are we prepared for God to stamp out our personal ambitions? Are we prepared for God to destroy our individual decisions by supernaturally transforming them? It will mean not knowing why God is taking us that way, because knowing would make us spiritually proud. We never realize at the time what God is putting us through— we go through it more or less without understanding. Then suddenly we come to a place of enlightenment, and realize— “God has strengthened me and I didn’t even know it!”
