Block Brigade


11 pax joined YHC for an upper body beatdown.  The theme was “dig a hole and fill it up”.  Therefore, most of the time was spent moving the block pile from one spot to another using various methods of passing it off.  I also wanted to keep things easy on the legs for those #HIMs that just finished the BRR and decided to do the harder thing and post.  Hopefully the Pax enjoyed a variation from the norm

Conditions: 75ish and humid

Mosey to the wall for Donkey Kick-Offs

Donkey Kick-Offs – get in plank position, feet toward the wall.  Donkey kick touching the wall for prescribed number of reps.  On the last rep, keep feet on the wall and hold same number of seconds as reps.  We did 5-10-15-10-5, recovering between each set

Mosey to block pile – each pax grab a block

Cinder Block Brigade –  the idea was to form a line and move the block down the parking lot and back by passing your block to the pax next to you.  The pax in the front sets his block on the ground and begins stacking the blocks as they come to him.  Pax in back will move to the front, grabbing a block from the pile and continue passing.  Each pax follows to the front until we have passed all the blocks for 2 rounds.  Methods of passing include:

Side by side facing school, side by side facing parking lot, side by side alternating pax facing school and parking lot, front to back passing overhead, front to back passing between legs.

We stopped along the way to do block merkins x 15 and curls for the girls x 30.  The goal was to go all the way to the end of the parking lot and back but time ran short.  Modified and overhead carried the blocks back to the original pile.

Mosey back to the courtyard and partner up

Broken Wheelbarrow to the 4th light pole and back.  Broken Wheelbarrow is similar to the Wheelbarrow except partner standing can only hold one leg of partner wheelbarrowing.  This was a pax favorite
