Yah for Bricks!!!

Weather: 65 Degrees  Humidity: 78%  Wind: NE @ 11mph Pressure: Oh yes!

YHC was honored once again to lead PAX into the gloom towards an unknown goal. There may be running. There may be bricks. There may even been some merkins (guaranteed). But nevertheless 18 fellow pax chose to follow me not knowing what was in store. Had they known, perhaps they would have made another choice today. Perhaps a good morning of fartsacking? We can’t think of what would have been, lets talk about what did go down!

The Thang:

BOM for a quick prayer giving thanks for our appendages and the ability to use them.

Mosey up towards the field of dreams and turn two of the Crypt entrance, during the mosey we reversed it for a little backwards moseying.

Grab a pair of bricks…These are my bricks. There are many like them, but these red ones are mine.

COP to do our warm up.

Side Straddle Hop x 15 IC

Windmill x 20 IC

Squat x 20 IC

Thru-the-tunnel x 15 IC

After a nice little warm up we decided to take a little mosey down to the crypt wall. Not unlike the great wall of China, there was a lot of ups, downs, and plenty of bricks.

Start out by laying prostrate on top of the wall, face up. We needed a good firm back support for the next set of exercises…

Grab your bricks and follow YHC at a good pace. While taking a nice walk….

Shoulder Press x 15 IC

Then we start to lunge as we make our way back up to the field of dreams…

Once we reach the pinnacle we go ahead and deposit our bricks to give them some R&R

Line up on the field, count off….this left us with 18 PAX which turned into 9 teams. YHC had to take one for the team and do the next few exercises on his own.

Partner up for some partner squats x 1min AMRAP

Drop-it-Like-a-Squat

Then we hit the deck…grab your partner’s ankles and hold on tight….it’s time for the Iron Cross!! Remember to keep the legs nice and stiff while on your back.

Leg Lift

Iron Cross x 1min AMRAP

We switch with our partners because some guys like being on top. It’s all about the position!

Iron Cross x 1 min AMRAP

Pax follow YHC towards the tree line and down the hill. They had no idea what we were doing but soon discovered this after making it through the pines.

Circle up near the cars for a good old fashion Merkin-go-round. Everyone planks it up and we do Merkins in turn. YHC starts with 4 Merkins and then it goes to the left. Every remains planked until we go all the way around down to 0 Merkins.

08StandardPushup

That’s it folks! All done for the day, don’t forget to tip your waitresses!!
