Today’s Cabal Fang WOD is a three-parter, as follows:

  • Half-pyramid to 12 of: Hop or Clap Push-ups, Flutter Kicks, Prisoner Squats (that’s a total of 78 each).
  • Two-kick Combos vs. Heavy Bag: Set timer for 1 min.   Kick bag with lead leg two-kick combos for 1 min, then rear leg combos, then rest 1 min.*
  • Meditation: Set a timer for 10 mins.  Relax, open your mind, and spend a few minutes meditating on a mental image of Archangel Barachiel, the androgynous guardian angel of Cabal Fang.  In the Eastern Orthodoxy he is known as Saint Barachiel, leader of the guardian angels, Prince of Seraphim.  Ruler of the planet Jupiter, he/she holds dominion over lighting and is often depicted holding a white rose or a basket of bread. Interestingly enough, In Enoch 8:4 he/she is listed as the 9th Watcher, the fallen angel who taught Astronomy to humanity.
