Post Christmas Block Party


23 Men including 4 visitors from North Carolina and 1 FNG arrived at Dogwood Dell to burn off some those Christmas calories. At 5:25 YHC climbed out his car, open the back and say grab a block. At 5:30 we got to work.

this is how it when down

With cinder blocks in hand mosey to the circle in front of the amphitheater

COP (ALL IC) – SSH, DQ, Hillbillies, Merkins, LBC’s, Dying Cockroach, Arm Circles


Mosey to the top of the Amphitheater

Descending Ladder – Start with 18 Decline Merkins with Hands on the block, then 17 and so on till you reach the bottom. Circle around to the six. YHC called audible for the six then PAX completed 5 Decline Merkins with Block IC.

Ascending Ladder – Start with 1 Step Up with Block overhead (or modify to holding infront when needed), then 2 and so till you reach the top. Hold plank on your block for the six

Mosey back to the circle

11’s – Circle up, Start with on Elf on the Shelf ( Start with the block on the ground beside you. Grab the block and lift it from the ground across your body reaching up as high as you can. Like putting it on a shelf. After a set from right to left then do left to right.) then Bear Crawl while dragging the block between your leg. Once to the center complete 10 Sit up + Press, then Bear Crawl with your block back to the edge of the center. Rinse and Repeat till Q called time

Mosey back to the SF

3 MOM – Boat and Canoe on the Q’s command

Numberama, Namerama, and Announcements. Kubota took us out


YHC had planned to use the blocks at some point this week and WDog just seemed fitting. It was nice to change the pace from an AO we mostly run at to a ground and pound.

Sorry YHC didn’t have enough blocks to go around. Wasn’t planning on a PAX so large today but also glad to see some many out today.

Welcome to Key Grip (Brother-in-law to Kubota)! Hope to have you back again soon!


Marmaduke is still collecting coats. Up to 90 from what we heard. Let’s get him to 100!




  1. Thanks for bringing the blocks out, Spit, NOT! Nice Q. Those 11’s were tough and we only made it to 4/7! Thanks for welcoming Key Grip this morning. Spit-mania continues tomorrow. See ya in the gloom!
