Today we are going to be the underdog from Philadelphia, Rocky Balboa. He was a nobody from the rough side of the tracks. He didn’t have many people in his corner. He felt very alone. But he worked hard to get a shot. His first opponent was Apollo Creed. Creed represents that Voice which says you will never be good enough, that you don’t have what it takes. We are going to defeat that voice today.


20- Arm Circles, Backward and Forward
20- Weed Pickers
20- Abe Vigoda (Windmills)
20- Michael Phelps

The Thang

• Mosey to Playground
2 Sets of Each of These
• 40 Jabs
• 40 Squats
• 40 side straddle hops
• Mosey further around the Track
We gave it our all, but we didn’t quite get the victory. We can’t play the victim. We’ve got to pick ourselves up and go for this Enemy again. We need to see ourselves the way God sees us, no longer an orphan who does not belong.
• 40 Jabs
• 40 Big Boy Situps
• 40 Merkins OR 20- 1 Arm Alternating Merkins – Harder than it looks
• Mosey further around the Track
Now, we are facing a new opponent, Clubber Lang. He represents our “Old Man” our “Former Self” which tells us we don’t deserve blessings and success and we’ll never change. But we need to crucify that former self so we can become a new creation. Apollo Creed comes along our side to help us- this is the confidence we gained from previous victories.
• 40 Jabs
• 40 LBCs
• 20 Burpees
• Mosey further around the Track
Now, we face the Russian Ivan Drago…He represents the challenge of outside forces trying to hinder us from moving forward to become the men God wants us to be. Sickness, Death, Discouragement, Financial Issues, Job Issues. We must be true to ourself and our Creator and fight through this pain to find freedom.
• 20 Derkins
• 10 Leg Lifts (Holding 20 Deg for 20 count)
• 20 Tricep Dips on bench
• Mosey back to Start, Jabbing all the way.

“The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done. Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!” ~ Rocky Balboa

Prayers for Atlas as he pursues his Doctorate at the U of A- he passed a difficult first step, now onto the next step!

Continued prayers for Dutch Oven!
