The Thang
January had me thinking about the beginning of the new year, so this workout is about the beginning of all things: Creation – Genesis 1

Day 1 – Verse 3: Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 5 God called the light day, and the darkness He called night.
The Light: Ring of Fire merkins x5
The Night: Moroccan Night Clubs x15 IC
The respectable Anchor Bar provided us with an Apache Ten Count before we moseyed to the crossway on Scholars Walk

Day 2 – Verse 7: God separated the waters which were below the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so. Creating the atmosphere and waters.
The atmosphere: Air Squared x15 IC – Air chair combined with air claps in cadence.
The waters: Seal Jacks x15 IC (I may or may not have inadvertently displayed plumbers crack during this exercise; my apologies to those offended 😉 )
Socrates provided us with an Apache Ten Count before we moseyed to the stairs on Scholars Walk.

Day 3 – Verse 9, 11  Then God said, “Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear”; Then God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation”
The Dry Land: Carolina Dry Docks 10x IC
The Vegetation: Al Gore 10 count 2x IC
Dial Tone provided us with an Apache Ten Count before we moseyed to the creepy statue lady bench

Day 4 – Verse 16 God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night.
The Greater Light: Sun Gods 10x forward, 10 back
The Lesser Light: Moon Gods 10x each arm

Day 5 – Verse 20 Then God said, “Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens.”
The Birds: 10 duck walk steps
The Sea Creatures: 10 crab walk steps
We then moseyed over to the front of Byrnes Auditorium

Day 6 – part 1 – verse 25 God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.
The Beasts: bear crawl up and down the Byrnes steps 3x
The Ground Creepers: dying cockroaches 10x IC
The respectable Samurai provided us with an Apache ten count before we moseyed over to the big eagle statue

Day 6 – part 2 – verse 27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; 31 God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good.
There is an exercise called “Manmakers” which would have been perfect for this verse but, being that they are too much like burpees, we did NOT do any.
Exercises named after people:
Bobby Hurleys x15 OYO
Don Quixotes (AKA Windmills) x10 IC
We then moseyed back to Alumni drive to continue

More exercises named after people:
LT Dan’s to the next light pole
Toy soldiers to the next light pole
Freddie Mercuries x10 IC
Peter Parker x10 IC

We then moseyed over to the grass field next to Dinkins
Jack Webbs (1 merkin to 4 overhead claps) up to 5 merkins and 20 overhead clap
Low slow squats x10 IC
We then walked back to COT

Day 7 – Genesis 2:1-3 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their hosts. By the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.

This verse brought us to the 4th of the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20:8-11 – “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of the Lord your God. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.”

Message to the PAX:

When Christ came, we began to celebrate the Lords Day instead of the Sabbath. A seventh day of rest is important to us as believers. God has given us a day for worship, teaching, and rest. We should take advantage of these blessings in honor to God as an opportunity for showing to Whom we truly belong.

Then followed the count-o-rama and name-o-rama
