F3nation.com describes Black Jack as…
“Start on the sideline of a football field. Perform 1 Merkin – run to other sideline – perform 20 LBCs. Run back and do 2 Merkins. Run back for 19 LBCs. Repeat until you do 20 Merkins and 1 LBC, running between the sidelines. Always adds up to 21 – BLACK JACK!”
YHC decided to modify a bit and use a combo of a Big Boy Sit-up/Overhead Press on one end and Block Swing on the other. Oh, and instead of going sideline to sideline, the PAX went end zone to end zone. One hundred beautiful yards between each exercise.
Mary: No time and the core was smoked anyway.

Devo: Ezra 7:10 – “For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the Law of the Lord, and to do it, and to teach statutes and ordinances in Israel.”
Ezra resolved to follow and serve God. Whether it be a physical challenge (like the Black Jack) or mental, emotional, or other type of struggle, we must have resolve and perseverance to finish the task before us.
Moleskin: This was a grind, but the PAX seemed to like Black Jack. YHC will admit that the combo Big Boy Sit-up/Overhead press looked better on paper. The house won the day as no one successfully completed although one man made it all the way from 20 Sit-ups / 1 Block Swing to 4 Sit-ups 17 Swings. Strong work!
