It was a crisp spring morning perfect setting to get some quality work in. So without delay Yhc and 11 friends gathered at Marthas for a fun filled morning. Quick disclaimer and warmup with 10 each SSH, Merkins and LBCs.
Several years ago Santa left me extra blocks from a wall built for my garden. These make great gifts which I was ready to share. According to Rudolph our weight expert each block weighed at least 100lbs (at least that what I heard him say). With block in hand we ran to the old Harris Tetter parking lot where we did three exercises at each of the four light poles on the corners. First round was 5 Blockees, 5 Squat thrusts and 5 Jump squats. Mumblechatter almost non-existent – probably because everyone was so happy I wasn’t running them 8 miles this morning. Next round was 10 curls, 10 overhead presses and 10 tricep extensions. After these two rounds I was ready for a break but pushed on with a round of Dora inspired with blocks – 100 merkins (on the block made it more like diamond Merkins), 200 LBCs and 300 squats with blocks.
Noting that time was on our side we did another round of Around the Lights this time with 15 Rocky Balboas, 10 straight arm block raises and 15 flutter kicks with block in air. Time was quickly running out so fellowship mosey back to start for COT and namorma
Thought for the day: Put as much effort into spiritual growth as we do strengthening our bodies
1Timothy 4:8 – “For physical training is of some value, but Godliness has value for all things, holding promises for both the present life and the life to come”
