The BackBlast:

10 Pax came out on a cool 27° morning to find the answer to what do MacGyver and The Law of Diminishing Returns have in common?

WARM-O-RAMA: Motivators (7), AV’s front/back, seal clap, MMP’s, Daisy Pickers (all to 15).  Mosey to field.

THANG 1:  Diminishing Returns – Run to end of field and back.  Stop at 10 yd line, do an exercise.  Run to end of field and back.  Stop at 20 yr line and do an exercise.  Do this until you run back to the 50 yd line and do your exercise.  MacGyver is known for deconstructing B.O.M.B.S, so that’s what we did:  at the 10 Yard line – 10 Burpees; 20 yd line – 20 overhead, 30 yd line – 30 merkins; 40 yd line – 40 Big Boys; 50 yd line – 50 squats.  When complete, do sets of 5 bombs until the 6 finishes.

THANG 2:  Diminishing Returns, Part II:  Basically the same thing, only differences are Bear Crawl to the end of the field and then run back instead of run there and back (only have to Bear crawl 50 yards to start instead of 100).  After completing, had time to do 1 extra full field run down and back with 10 burpees.  Fellowship jog to AO.

MARY:  Chris Christies, Heel Touches, American Hammers, Box Cutters (15 count each)

CoT:  Incorporating The Law of Diminishing Returns into Leadership, if you have too many goals, all of your goals will lose value and you are less likely to achieve them.  Choose a few goals to accomplish.  MacGyver was able to focus because his goal at the end of every episode seemed the same, deconstruct the Bomb.  Pick a few goals, focus on them and complete.  Thanks to the Pax for humoring me as I somewhat connected MacGyver and the Law of Diminishing Returns together.  What do they have in common?  This beatdown!
