Wandering Block Party

Four Station Block Relay – The original idea for this workout had us moving between stations relay style with blocks. Since we didn’t have quite enough PAX to make this happen, we stayed together and probably had more fun as a group anyway.

Conditions: A beautiful breeze



The Thang:

Each PAX grabbed a block and used it as necessary for the following stations and rounds. Climbing up the stairs with the blocks to reach each station (located approximately 100 yards apart) caused quite a bit of panting.

Devo: Habit #1 of mentally tough people:

You have to fight when you already feel defeated. A reporter once asked Muhammad Ali how many sit-ups he does every day. He responded, “I don’t count my sit-ups, I only start counting when it starts hurting, when I feel pain, cause that’s when it really matters.” The same applies to success in the workplace. You always have two choices when things begin to get tough: you can either overcome an obstacle and grow in the process or let it beat you. Humans are creatures of habit. If you quit when things get tough, it gets that much easier to quit the next time. On the other hand, if you force yourself to push through a challenge, the strength begins to grow in you.
