Given the recent warm weather and approaching spring break, YHC decided it was time for the Spartan to undertake some body sculpting via the lifting of heavy objects. With 20 cinder blocks in tow, YHC showed up to MBE to find a robust number of PAX punctually awaiting an AM beatdown. And they kept coming. 21 PAX eventually posted on this damp but temperate morning at MBE. A record for the Spartan to the knowledge of YHC. And one more than anticipated. Thanks to those who generously donated some of their curls and presses to their fellow cinder-block-less PAX.

Mosey to MBE field
- Block Webbs – Swole brother of Jack Webb – Incline merkin on cinder block (CB) then shoulder press from knees: 1:1 ratio, start 1:1, then 2:2, and so on – we made it to 8:8 which was to exhaustion for YHC (will work on this and aspire to 10:10 next time the blocks come out)
- Flutter Presses – Flutter kicks IC to 5 with CB on chest; then five presses with CB, maintains six inches position while pressing beginning on second set. Can’t remember how many sets we did, I think 4.
- Colt 45s – Curls: start at flex position go down to 90 degrees, do x reps; go to bottom or extending positon then go up to 90 degrees, do x reps; then full curl for x reps; did 5-5-5, 10-10-10, and 15-15-15.

First PAX from group 1 does the shuttle run by picking up a CB at the other groups line, returns CB to his line, then retrieves the second CB, then returns brick to his starting spot. Meanwhile partner is doing 10 burpees. PAX from group 2 finish burpees then do shuttle run while PAX from group 1 do burpees. Rinse and repeat x 3.
