YHC set up 6 stations, each with its own exercise.
- Curls 4 the Girls
- Squats with a Block
- Box Cutters
- Tricep Extensions
- 4 Count Lunges
- Flutter Kicks
Pax got in a line at the first station and started doing curls OYO. Once the minimum number of reps were met, the first pax would move to the next station and complete the next exercise. Remaining pax would stay at the first station, doing curls until it was their turn. Pax would move 1 station at a time in turn, carrying their block and completing at least the minimum number of reps or more if the station in front of them was not empty. First pax would get to station 6 and keep doing Flutter Kicks until the 6 was in and would reverse back through the ladder, with all pax following in the same order they ascended. First round was all pax completing a minimum of 5 reps. Round 2, YHC split the pax into 2 groups but increased the number or reps to 10. For Round 3, the pax shuffled order, dropped their blocks, and complete 7 reps of Alternating Shoulder Taps, Monkey Humpers, Freddie Mercurys, Merkins, Calf Raises and LBCs.
Teams finished up together with 7 alternating shoulder taps right on time before stowing the blocks

Devo: YHC brought up multiple current events where people expressing themselves on social media has caused issues. It is frustrating because we are in America and have freedom of speech, but those that complain about intolerance are those that are the most intolerant. People get their feelings hurt and feel justified to lash out and hurt back. It turns into a While thinking and pray about these different situations, YHC was reminded of Micah 6:8. The Message reads “But He’s already made it plain how to live, what to do, what GOD is looking for in men and women. It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor, be compassionate and loyal in your love, and don’t take yourself to seriously – take God seriously.” It’s a good thing to take up a just cause, express yourself and fight for what you believe in. No one can take that from you. But in the end we need to make sure that we aren’t taking ourselves “too seriously” and taking our fight to the point where we aren’t showing grace, love and compassion.
Moleskin: During “team” rounds, the Pax from opposite teams were actually completing the stations together before moving on and not making it a race. Awesome to see them push each other and it will probably be a nice modification for the next time YHC pulls out this workout.
