Cinder Block Beatdown

26 pax rolled into the depot for a Gerrymander comeback Q since leaving the depot for the Foxhole-LM.  The mumble chatter was strong at first but cut short after the first direction was given to grab a cinder block and circle up.  With the mud run 4 days away YHC decided to prep the pax by putting together a small group circuit workout to emphasize teamwork.





Power Clean with Blocks x 10 IC

Alternating Merkins on block x 15 OYO

Cinder Block Swings x 20 OYO

Across Body Cinder Block Swings x 20 each side OYO

  1. Bummer I missed this. I like a good challenge. Something about a number of stations that compels me to want to get to all of them – no matter what.
