Ahhhh, That Nostalgic Smell of Brick Dust in the Morning


What do you get when you mix sweat, brick dust, and a glorious 70 degree sunrise? Well friends, that’s the Forge beating HIM’s into razor sharp blades for massive Kingdom impact. Forever written into the anals of the revered Smokefest Scrolls, this routine will be one to tell the grandchildren:



  • Mosey the upper loop and circle up
  • Welcome & Disclaimer
  • Variable IC Reps to get the muscles warm top to bottom

COP #1:

  • Mosey past YHC’s truck to collect the BRICK COUPONS (2 per PAX)
  • Alternate x5 Hand-Release (Brick-Slide) Merkins with x5 WWII (Holding Bricks overhead) at each light pole going down to the Culdesac (about 12 stops)

***LIFO brothers SNUFF & BONE THUGS arrive fashionably late, blissfully brickless, and were sent back to the top of the AO to collect their bricks – and off they skipped holding hands into the gloom…***

COP #2:

  • Circle up in the Culdsac for IC reps of the following exercises WHILE holding bricks in hand:
  • “Brick Press Hops” – SSH’s but with Brick Press on top
  • Don Briqotez
  • Ukraine Soldiers with Bricks held straight out in front
  • T-plank Brick Circles, ea side
  • American Brick Hammers
  • 2-ct Flutters w Bricks held over/behind head

COP #3:

  • Mosey back up to the lower lot with one Brick Burpee at each light pole (***pick up SNUFF & THUGS en route***)
  • DORA: Moving partner Brick Crawls (bear crawls with bricks in hand) to the top of the grassy hill, then runs down to switch.
  • x100 HRM’s (Brick-slide Merkins)
  • x200 Straight Leg Raises (bricks held above/behind head)
  • x300 Moroccan Night Bricks

Mosey BTTF for COT:

  • Group Picture with Bricks 
  • Counterama # 10
  • Namerama
  • Announcerama (see Comments)
  • YHC took the PAX out in Prayer

NMS: We may never use our thumbs again, but it was worth it! Shout out to JUDGE celebrating his 33rd Birthday today – YHC hopes you see this little workout as the best possible gift. The sky was unreal as we started the morning, and the sweat was pouring by the end. YHC had a moment of deep nostalgia while doing Brick Slide Merkins, as childhood memories of shooting cap guns filled my mind (apparently similar to the smell of brick dust on pavement). GREAT work today crushing this workout fellas – appreciate ya’ll investing the labor of love. SYITG, DTH
