Out of Town Q Part 2 – Block Day

Due to an unusual work schedule, YHC has had the pleasure of visiting Mac and the Golden Strip for the second time in a week. YHC did not expect to be allowed back again to Q, but there I was, and here is what happened.


Weather: 70 degrees, humid

The Thang:

Intro, Disclaimer, Prayer and Lord’s Prayer. Pledge of Allegiance

Slaughter Start – 19 Burpees OYO

Mosey around the parking lot for warmup.

COP – the “Old Man’s Warmup” as it was later described:


Merkins X 11 IC

Windmill X 11 IC

Little baby arm circles – 11F and 11R IC

Overhead claps x 11 IC

Slow-mo merkins X 11 IC


Imperial Walkers X 19 IC

Today is 6/11/19, but no one really asked why there were so many 11’s……

Block Day

Mosey to the block pile and grab a block.

Pax were instructed that during the next set of exercises they could set their block down at any time but doing so would result in everyone doing 5 penalty burpees. They did a great job – the Q was the only one who put his block down.

Curls for the Girls X 10 IC

Shoulder press X 10 IC

Tricep extensions X 10 IC – scratched this one.

Bent over rows X 10 IC

BBSU X 10 OYO with block

Chest Press X 10 IC

Flutterkicks X 10 IC

Squats X 10 IC

Oops – the Q set his block down -5 burpees OYO – run up the hill and back down.

It’s June 11, so time for some 11’s with the blocks.

1st Pair – Curls for the Girls and Shoulder Press

2nd Pair – Bent Over Rows and Squats

Q dropped his block again – 5 burpees and run up the hill and back down.

3rd Pair – BBSU and Flutterkicks

Put blocks up – take a loop around the small parking lot on the way.

Mosey to the shovel flags.

American hammer X 11 IC

As all Arena pax know, YHC always does two final exercises to remember our lost F3 and FiA pax:

Merkins for Digits – 30, or as many as possible, on YHC’s count – pause – do last 6 together for a total of 36.

Flutter kicks for Cheech, 30 IC, pause, and then 8 more together for Cheech – 38 total.

Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” We all have issues to deal with every day. Marriage, children, work, co-workers, friends – there are a lot of challenges every day. We have to persevere and remember that God can work through us to meet those challenges. He can get it done when we can’t. Count your blessings and have a great day!
