4 Men planted the shovel flag at #PowderKeg to work off Christmas indulgences.

YHC was still recovering from an @Flay leg assault the previous day, so the workout was destined to be slanted towards the upper body.

The Thang:

SSH x25
IW x20
Merkins x10

Mosey to the shed and grab a cinder block
21’s – curl set with 7 reps from bottom to half way, 7 reps from top down to half way, 7 full reps
Flutters x20 with brick overhead
Prisoner squats x10
(Q fail – can’t recall this exercise between 21’s)

Back to the brick pile – exchange for a smaller brick

Mosey to the parking lot – Cora Dora
Russian twist x100
Freddy Mercury x200
Dolly x300
Partner running carried brick with them

Drop the bricks (we’ll come back for them later) and mosey to the steps
Joe Hendricks up the steps, then 5 burpees
repeato for all 3 set of steps

Mosey to the far side of the property to a short, steep hill

Big Ben (for 3 mins)
Plank position and rotate to whatever clock position called out by YHC.

Short mosey to long paved hill
One person runs the hill while the other 3 perform core exercise until it’s their turn to run. Once all 4 guys have run, change the exercise
Oblique crunches
Back scratchers

Mosey back to the parking lot and pick up your bring. Continue mosey to brick pile. WAIT….
10 squats (slow count). Now you can put your brick on the pile.

Mosey back to the flag.

Naked Moleskin
– Always great to see the guys at #Powderkeg
– 300 Dolly’s are crappy. Add a brick and it’s #sucktastic
– Domer gave me the workout title when he commented that “carrying these bricks is like the UPS olympics”. Partly in reference to the fact that UPS is @BrownShorts’ employer.
– No time left for 6MOM but we got plenty of core work in

Prayer Requests
– Domer’s family
– Sherpa as he performs God’s work in Nepal
– YHC’s co-worker who is in critical condition after a brain aneurism
– YHC’s friend who’s nephew died in a car accident on Christmas Day

– New Year’s Day Convergence at #TheMainThang
– Sign up for the Drifter 6k

See ya in the gloom…..
