Workout: PAX convened in the lower level of the OPRF HS parking garage. They were to complete a circuit of 15 reps of the following coupon exercises: Blockie, Overhead press, Kettle Bell Swings, Curls, Squats. Coupon exercises were followed by a bear crawl up the lower level ramp, then lunges across the mid level ramp then backward sprint up the upper ramp. Run back to the starting point. That was one circuit. Due to timing we replaced lunges after first circuit with a sprint. PAX completed 3-4 circuits.
Completed the workout with flutter kicks and BB sit-ups.
FNG: We welcomed a FNG (invited from Kodak) who was named Spackler as a referenced to Carl Spackler from Caddyshack.
COT: Cinco de Mayo is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s May 5, 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. Some folks mistake the holiday for Mexico’s independence day. In this battle a ragtag army of 2,000 Mexican soldiers defeated 6,000 French well-armed soldiers. This serves as another example of the human spirit overcoming great odds to achieve victory. Although the PAX in Oak Park are not likely to serve in this type of situation, it does beg the question of what is most important to us? What are we willing to fight for? What are we willing to sacrifice for? It’s important to revisit your core values to think about these questions.
