Intro: The Ditch keeps growing. This morning was no exception with 15 weirdos rolling out into the heat and humidity, with 1 FNG. YHC wanted to leave the AO, while having the PAX in constant motion.
Disclaimer: Given to 1 FNG. To everyone – scale, modify or replace.
Warmup: Arm circles (no cadence, continue until all of the late PAX get in the circle), World’s Greatest Stretch
Thang: Partner-up, grab a block each, then line-up on the basketball court. Partner 1 will do situps with feet in block. Partner 2 will do merkins on the block. 2 minutes, max effort. Switch and repeat.
Staying paired, the PAX moved out in two columns with the blocks in a Mule Train. As they walked in formation, each PAX performed either curls, OHP, tri extensions, or Cussack. Blocks would not be carried on the shoulders. The team at the end of the formation performed 5 blockees, then ran to catch up with the formation. Reaching the formation, the team would move to the front, while the next team stopped to do their 5 blockees. Rinse and repeat until the formation reached the playground (about 1/3 mile). Thanks to Belding for the idea.
At the playground, each team bear crawled in succession from the entrance to the first picnic table (bench dips until the next team arrived), then to the swings (swing crunches until the next team arrived), then to the monkey bars (pullups until the next team arrived), then to the picnic table (step-ups until the next team arrived, then the other side of the picnic table (inclined merkins), then bear crawl to the entrance. Rinse and repeat for two rounds.
Mule Train back to the AO.
Mary: Dammits x15, stow blocks.

Devo: A timely message from James 2:1. “My dear brothers and sisters, how can you claim to have faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ if you favor some people over others?”
Black, white, brown, yellow, Catholic, Protestant, Methodist, etc, etc, we are all children of God.
Moleskin: Welcome FNG Sunshine, Marcus Britt. Marcus is a big dude, who played offensive line at SC State, and has an even bigger personality. Come back again, brother.
