Mosey to the block pile and grab a block. Mosey back to the driveway.

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 – for one set of exercises – before Quest put his down. 5 Burpees.

Shoulder press X 10 IC

Bent over rows X 10 IC

BBSU X 10 OYO with block

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

1st Pair – Curls for the Girls and Shoulder Press

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

2nd Pair – Bent Over Rows and Squats

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

1 Thessalonians 5:11 “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”  It’s easy to get caught up in negative conversation, but let’s set the example and build one another up instead of tearing others down.
