Lindsays aka Forties
Lindsays are a high-rep variation of Elevens. You start with 30 reps of one exercise and 10 reps of another exercise OYO, then subtract 5 reps from the first exercise and add five reps from the second. Repeat OYO until you have 10 reps of the first exercise and 30 reps of the second. The sum must always add up to 40. Example: Lindsays with Dips and Merkins starts you with 30 Dips and 10 Merkins, then 25 Dips and 15 Merkins, then 20 Dips and 20 Merkins, then 15 Dips and 25 Merkins, then 10 Dips and 30 Merkins.
COT / BOM: QIC shared a conversation that his M sparked up regarding instant gratification. We live in a world where the moral high ground is dissipating and everyone wants to “have it now”. Whether it be the new iPhone, sex, money, food, etc., this generation does not want to wait, work, or save towards something. Q quoted Psalms 27:14 “Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord”.
MOLESKIN: PAX learned that railroad ties are heavier than they look and performing 150 burpees and 300 LBCs is not so easy either. PAX worked hard and learned to be patient with various aspects of their lives.
