Brick By Brick

THE SCENE: 40s and it felt like a heatwave!

YHC and other PAX were 6 days removed from doing 99 Bodybuilders with a ruck on, so we started with 10 Bodybuilders today, then Side Straddle Hops x20, Hillbillies x15, Imperial Walkers x15, Forward Arm Circles x10, Reverse Arm Circles x10


Elevens on the hill

  • Start at bottom with 10 Merkins run to top and do 1 Squat
  • Back down and do 9 Merkins back top and do 2 squats, etc desc reps of Merkins, asc reps of Squats
  • Finish after you’ve done 1 merkin and finished 10 squats up top

BBBS  – Brick by Brick Shuttle Run  (Burpee Big Boy Sit-ups)

PAX number off 1s&2s and form two lines 10 yards apart (3 parking spaces at today’s AO). First PAX from Group 1 does the shuttle run by picking up a brick at the other groups line, returns brick to his line, then retrieves the second brick, then returns brick to his starting spot. Remaining PAX are meanwhile in plank position or crab hold awaiting their turn and rotate between the two positions. After PAX completes the shuttle run, he proceeds to perform:

  • R1: 15 Burpees, then falls in line in either plank or crab hold
  • R2: 15 BBs, falls in line
  • R3: 10 Burpees, fall in line
  • R4: 10 BBs, fall in line
  • R5: 5 Burpees, fall in line
  • R6: 5 BBs, fall in line

Partner Work:

  • 30xMerkins; 60xSquats; 90xOverhead claps
  • 20xMountain Climbers; 40xLunges; 60xOverhead Press

14 PAX: Vocals, Orange Julius, O Positive, Moth Balls, C-Lo, Granola, Shoestring, Nature Boy, Soybean, Phat Pat, Four Eyes, Teacher’s Pet, 2 FNGS (Mile High & Cello)

Encouraged PAX to embrace vulnerability and counseling opportunities. YHC was leaving AO to clean up and attend marriage seminar with his M. Said that pre-marital counseling and the like has been very beneficial and necessary to thrive. PAX expressed family with health concerns: YHC’s grandmother; Soybean’s mother another unspoken request for interwebs; Praise for C-Lo’s 2.0 Baptism to happen on 1/21.

YHC was hoping to do a Butch Jones eulogy workout earlier in the month, but had to travel out of town for family funeral. The Brick By Brick Shuttle Run was on his mind and inspired from memories of the Presidential Physical Fitness Test he recalls from grade school. PAX commented on their being a heatwave after many experienced subzero windchills earlier in the week. Also note there was a brief moment went Phat Pat was carried away and thinking that he might go Chippendale on us. PAX reminded him to not cause others to stumble.

YHC failed to make the announcement that 1/27 is SERVICE DAY in place of the normal workout. Four Eyes is Q for a house cleanout day. Home is near the BERM and PAX will pre-ruck to the worksite for 7am start. See PREBLAST for more info.
