“If you will live like no one else, later you can live and give like no one else.” – Dave Ramsey
Five warriors rose to greet the dawn of a new day. The conditions were ripe for success. The fee of admission today was to show up and being on the right side of the dirt. According to legend, this rock filled hot potato Q went a little something like this.
COP: IC X 10, SSH, Don Quiote, Helicopter, Cherry Pickers
Grab a rock and mosey up the hill.
Cinco de Awesome:
Round 1 – With rock 10 X curls, overhead press. Run to tree and back.
Round 2 – With rock 10 X curls, overhead press, squats. Run to tree and back
Round 3 -With rock 10 X curls, overhead press, squats, WWII situps. Run to tree and back
Round 4 -With rock 10 X curls, overhead press, squats, WWII situps, bench press. Run to tree and back
Pass the Q to Wheelbarrow:
Mosey over to the playground.
Trifecta – 3 Rounds of 5 pull-ups, 10 dips and a run to some random ass tree as long as it is green and has leaves, you know because we are in FOREST Hill Park in total darkness and vagaries here should do just fine.
NA Run around the playground with a rock overhead or close to chest.
Pass the Q to Hardywood:
Super Four Corners – Snuggle up to the rock of success for a circumnavigation around the outside of all three tennis courts. At each corner alternate 10 Hand Release Merkins or 10 WWII Strict Situps.
Pass the Q to Goldberg:
4 Rounds of bear crawl curb to curb in the cul-de-sac followed by an exercise.
Round 1 &Round 2: YHC was in complete oxygen deprivation and forgot these. So sue me.
Round 3: 20 WWII situps
Round 4: 10 burpees
Down the hill to put up rocks and back to the flag.
Numberama, namerama, YHC took us out.
This was an absolute smokefest. Way to crush it fellas. Great to have Goldberg and Wheelbarrow in tow.
The title comes from the great Dave Ramsey. If there’s anything that that guy is, it is consistent. The line “If you will live like no one else, later you can live and give like no one else.” is a testament to doing the hard work now, to make sacrifices today for the life you want to live. As we’ve had a bunch of new guys over the last few weeks, this thought has kept coming up for YHC. How much would you intentionally sacrifice to have the life you want? Would you be willing to “live like no one else” (get up early, go to be early, push yourself to the brink of vomit, not be good at something in front of your peers, get some random nickname, drink less, eat better, etc.) so that you can “live like no one else” (have a daily source of pride, clarity, focus and health in an environment whose only barrier to entry is that you show up, lose weight, have actual friends, etc.).
It does not get easier, but it does get better.
