16 PAX gathered this Friday morning for some fun and games. Recovery was the intent of this workout after Wednesday’s beat down, so it was all abs, all morning.

One of my favorite card games is Phase 10, so two stations were setup on opposite sides of the track with three exercises each. Typically, the player to work through all 10 phases of the game wins. A phase consists of a predetermined number of cards making a run and a predetermined number of cards making a set with no more than 10 cards at any point. The team to achieve the highest one of the 10 possible phases would win. The penalty for losing – 20 burpees. We counted off and broke the PAX into teams of 3 and one team of 4. YHC gave each team 6 cards to begin.
FV = Face value of the card
Wild card = Face value = 15
Skip = discard and draw again
10 x FV – Big Boy Sit ups
20 x FV – Plank Jacks
10 x FV – LBCs
10 x FV – Double Count Flutters
20 x FV – Heals to Heaven
10 x FV – Reverse LBCs
Half the PAX began on the other side. Each group would draw three cards, perform the number on the sheet x face value of each card, and discard the cards not needed for their desired phase keeping in mind the max of 10 cards in your hand. The PAX would run from station 1 to station 2 and quadraphilia from station 2 to 1. Four teams achieved phase 10, so burpees were handed out.

Message – Becoming More Selfless – Philippians 2: 3-4 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
Looks for ways to 1) Promote someone other than yourself. 2) Take a subordinate role. 3) Give secretly where someone can never repay you.
