Hamburger Hill

Q: Hogs Breath

Disclaimer: Given

Warm O Rama:
Imperial Walkers
Calf Raises

The Thang

Mosey to the bottom of the hill.

Circle up and Dealers choice, followed by 5 iterations of Failure to Launch

Indian Sprints with KettleBell pass

Start at the base of a steep hill, we performed an Indian Run carrying a 15lbs KettleBell. Once the sprinter reached the front of the line, the KettleBell was passed to the back of the line until the last man began the sprint. Continued this for 10mins till we reached the “top o’ hill”.

Performed one round of “Deck o’ Beatdown”

Repeated the Indian Run passing the KettleBell, down and back up the hill.

Words of wisdom:

2 Corinthians 4:16-17 “Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For out light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all”

Q: Priorities

Where can you find pleasure
Search the world for treasure
Learn science technology
Where can you begin to make your dreams all come true
On the land or on the sea
Where can you learn to fly
Play in sports and skin dive
Study oceanography
Sign up for the big band
Or sit in the grandstand
When your team and others meet

Words of Wisdom: Check out Q1.2 – The King and Q1.3 – The Queen. These are the daily discipline of physically training the body and the daily discipline over what is put in the body.

“You can’t out King your Queen.” – Dredd

It is impossible to train or maintain your body to your expectations by only having discipline over one and not the other.
