Mose to Cougar’s house to pickup a few more cinder blocks.

On the way travel back, Block party at every intersection:
First intersection:  Overhead Press x10 IC  those without a block did merkins
While holding the flag off the ground performed one armed merkins.  TCLAPS!

Broke into two groups of three for relays.  On this day we had seven so two men run in the third position.

Relays started with two men (1st and 3rd runner) on one side of carpool circle and one (2nd runner) at the other.  The distance between the men was approximately 35-40 yds.

The 1st runner starts the relay running with the block while the other runners perform an exercise until they are tagged to run.  The exercises chosen and the duration are at the Q’s discretion.  The object while performing this routine is to never place the block on the ground.

1st interval:  Exercise – Genuine x 3 lengths each runner

2nd interval:  Exercise – Kettle bell swings x3 lengths each runner

3rd interval:  Exercise – American hammers (with block) x2 lengths

Mosey to the curb in front of the schools entrance.

Mercy Street Webbs:  PAX on their back with head on the curb.  Block raised above their chest.  1st count: With the arms out straight lower the block just behind the head and return then perform 4 presses.  2nd count:  lower the block behind the head x2 then perform 8 presses.  So on and so forth through 5 counts.

Peoples chair with the block:  1 min in the seated position with the block on the PAX lap then overhead presses x10 IC.  Rinse and repeat x3

Cougar forgot that we were starting the Saturday morning earlier.  He and his M were leisurely sipping coffee in the glow of a Christmas tree lights when out in the lawn there arose such a clatter.  He sprang from his couch to see what was the matter. And what to his wondering eyes did appear, but seven brawny men embarrassed it‘s clear.  With a little, old leader, wearing gear that didn’t match, he new in a minute it must be Escape Hatch.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, and handed each a block…man, what a jerk!  They sprang to their feet and were off with a trot, all in the hopes that they wouldn’t be shot.

But Cougar heard him exclaim as they ran out of sight, “Check your pants Bollywood! What you did just at right!”
