The Thang

First exercise is a buddy exercise. Buddy A does the stationary exercise while buddy B does the moving exercise down to the 30 yard line and back. Then buddy B does stationary and buddy A does the moving exercise.

  • Round 1 Squats/Bear Crawl
  • Round 2 Lunges/Big Boys
  • Round 3 Merkins/Broad Jump

Mosey over to the low wall and do the second exercise two times through:

Then mosey back to the goal line for the last exercise:

  • Run to the 10 yard line and back
  • Do 1 Burpee
  • Run to the 20 yard line and back
  • Do 2 Burpees…

Everyone made it to the 70 yard line and some PAX got through to 100. Then we mosied back to the Lightning Rod with an extra stairs run on the way.


  • Scissor Kicks x 20 in cadence


Each part of this workout was intended to represent one of the three Fs.

The timed portion is a measure of Fitness. Fitness is about being fit for a purpose, suitable for the task we are assigned. It’s not about looking good or even about feeling good. In order to talk about Fitness, we need to know what task we are trying to be fit for. That’s our reason, our Why.

The buddy portion represents Fellowship. It’s a scary world out there, and we’re not going to make it alone. In order to survive, in order to thrive, we have to stick together. We have to work together to get it done, encouraging each other as we go.

The Burpee Ladder is about Faith. We have to believe in something outside of ourselves. This could be God, the Fellowship, the connectedness of the universe- there has to be some Higher Power out there because we can’t be it. We can’t do it on our own. There’s not enough strength in me to run up and down the field doing burpees when it’s freezing cold and dark. That power has to come from somewhere outside of us.

PAX went around the circle and shared about their Why, the task and purpose they want to be fit for, and about their Higher Power, where they get their Faith and their Strength from.

Remember your Why, stay close to your Fellows, and reach out to your Higher Power for help!

With Love,
