A Burpeepalooza At Hurler

  • When: 12/01/16
  • QIC: Friar
  • The PAX: Snips, Twig, Band Camp, Banjo, 2-Ply, Friar (Q)

It was YHC’s turn to Q this morning at . I wanted to set the bar high; so I decided to “throw down the gauntlet” (as one described it) by trying to steal the title of “Angry Preacher” away from Abraham! Maybe that scared some of the PAX; because by 5:23 I was still solo, but eventually another 5 men rolled in just in time to get the snot worked out of them! Of course, these were Granite Strong men, so nothing really to worry about! To the ones who decided to stay in their warm beds, cuddled to their teddy bears, and sipping hot chocolate or whatever one does when he doesn’t POST; you missed out on a real chance to get better!

  • SSH ICx10
  • ATT ICx10
  • Little Arm Circles ICx10

  • Lyrics to “Come Thou Long Expected Jesus”
  • 1st Week of Advent is about Hope
  • From Adam and Eve all the way to you and me we have hope in the Coming Christ
  • Share that hope with the many we see this time of year who feel hopeless

It was an honor to work out and lead these men! I don’t know if you can find a tougher group who want to get better! They took on a workout fit for The ER and CRUSHED IT!!!!! You may want to start recruiting Q’s from these guys, Flamer!
