    The Odyssey (Life)

    Men have to be walking paradoxes. The Iliad teaches that it is honorable for men to die for a cause. The Odyssey shows us that men should have something that they stay alive for. What are we willing to die for, and what are we willing to fight to stay alive for?
    5-10 minute crusher. Fast feet, side straddle hops, high knees, burpees random for 5 minutes.

    It was an honor to lead. Every man left a little bit rougher and tougher, and leaner and meaner.
