Block Party

Block Party


30 brave men dug their cold weather gear out of storage for a below 30 degree workout and signed up for an adventurous morning!

Warm Up:

Mosey to the bus lot and circle up:

  • SSH
  • Imperial Walkers
  • Low Slow Squats

The Rolling Hills of Olde Providence:

Starting at the entrance of OP, run to Foxworth with exercises at each streetlight (5 Merkins on the left, 5 Squats on the right).  Lunge walk up Foxworth and then a Mosey to YHC’s house to begin the fun.

Cinder Block Relay:  Break up into groups of 3 and traverse Bedfordshire to Foxworth, handing the cinder block off to your partner at intersections.  Mary and plank while you wait.

Mosey down Bedfordshire to Knightswood and do 5 burpees at each stoplight on your way back to Windyrush.

Once back at OP Elementary we did a variety of partner exercises (Dips, Carolina Dry Docks, Wall Sits and Step Ups).  Was it variety or struggling to fill time?…..

Mosey back to launch for some quick Mary and DONE!


The most Epic move of the morning was the turnout and donations of food for Loaves and Fishes.  Blown away at the impact of F3Nation and what the Lord can do as we live out Proverbs 27:17, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another”.


  • Orange Whip is hosting Q school this Saturday after Rock Zero.  Come workout at 7:00 then join the instruction.  Whether you’ve never lead a workout, need a refresher, or want to get better, its a great opportunity.
  • Great turnout to start the Area 51 food drive for Loaves and Fishes (see Udder’s picture on Slack), but it’s not your only opportunity to give:
    • Next opportunity is Saturday at Rock Zero – 7:00am workout
    • If those options don’t work for you, reach out to Voodoo, Cheese Curd, Hoover, Orange Whip, Geraldo, Flipper, or Udder to coordinate a drop-off.
    • There is also an Amazon wish list (check Slack for details)
  • There was a peaceful transfer of power as Gummy has fulfilled his reign at Hydra and Sprockets decided it was easier just to move away.  I’m sure there was a big push by Gummy on who would make the introductions, but it was Sprockets displaying his poetic prowess and subtle jabs in introducing Jet Fuel and Slingshot as the new Hydra Site Q’s.
  • Sprockets last Area 51 Q (until we put him on the schedule when he’s in town) is December 5th at Rock Zero.  Come see him off and celebrate his birthday!
