Block Thursday


16 Men of The Gloom arrived on another glorious morning to enjoy some cinder block fun.

5:30 came, YHC called “let mosey”, then headed to the car and open the trunk. Everyone grabbed a block and off we went.

This how it went down

Short mosey to the grassy area next to the parking lot

COP (ALL IC) – SSH, DQ, Hillbillies, Tempo LBC’s, Merkins (On Cinder Block), Arm Circles


Mosey to the tennis court

Dora – 100 Workins (on the cinder blocks), 200 Goblet Squats, 300 sit up + press. Partner completes suicides using the tennis court lines

Mosey to the blacktop

Merkin Row – Line up the cinder block in a straight line with plank length between each block. Moving down the line completing Right Arm on Block Merkin, Regular Merkin, and Left Arm on Block Merkin. Rinse and Repeat touching each block

Triple Check – Balls to the Wall, Good Mornings, and Run to fence and back

 Hallelujah Mosey back to the SF for Numberrama, Namerama, Announcements and YHC took us out.


Another Q, another cinder block workout. Some of the PAX had a feeling it was coming but lucky YHC was able to surprise most. Apologizes go out to Handshake and Loose Goose for getting a double dose of cinder block this week. Hopefully changing the exercises made it better (probability not)

Despite the large amount of sit up reps, the PAX pushed through in great time

Mumble Chatter seemed to be focused around teams completing the Dora but also Lab Rat sharing his bathroom “needed”

  1. Great job fellas! Enjoy teaming up with Handshake, Lab Rat, and Pucker.


  2. Swirly (F3 Corporate) on

    Love me some blocks !
    Merkin row was tough…
    Great Q Spit.
    Way to work guys.
    See y’all in the gloom..

  3. Dude, that was a bear! I never thought the sit up presses were going to end. The Merkin Row was a heck of a challenge to! My shoulders are toast!

  4. Nice one, Spit! I agree that Merkin Row was tough and seemed to never end. Way to partner up to Keymaster, Loose Goose and Handshake.

  5. I can’t remember a more difficult Dora. Smoker! Apparently not for Bodos though, who found time to juggle is F3 water to wine after the beatdown.

  6. Vinny that was just a deflection to hide my pain. A bad day to not bring gloves. Great Q Spit!!
