The Thang (credit Lazlo): Pax split into two teams for separation and Burpee control and ran the length of the field ten times for 100 reps of ten exercises: Body Weight Squat, American Hammer (2-count), Merkins, Monkey humpers, Flutter Kick (three count), Side Straddle Hop (three count), Lunge (single count each leg), Overhead claps (single count), Supermans. For Burpees (final round) the teams exchanged sets of 10 en route to 100. We then moseyed about the campus circling up for 10 Alternating Shoulder Taps/10 Mountain Climbers x4, then a five-rep Merkin ring of fire.

COT: Thinking of Dwight Eisenhower, who as president through the McCarthy era along with other challenges that echo today foresaw/forewarned of our current polarization. He said: “The middle of the road is all of the usable surface. The extremes, right and left, are in the gutters.” The usable surface is where the work gets done – it’s really the only way we can work. As a leader, finding common ground with those around you is essential to productivity.
