11 men met to get stronger this morning and we gained 2 additional pax by the time our warm-up was completed. I know tomorrow is Veteran’s Day and have a huge amount of respect for all veterans so I wanted to do something a little different. Each exercise that we completed was for a count of 11 (In Cadence) to commemorate November 11th. Throughout the workout, I also read a little about the history of Veteran’s Day to make us all more aware of how this holiday began and became what it is today.
The workout went a little like this:
Imperial Storm Troopers
Alternating Toe Touches Mosey to Block pile
Grab a block. Complete the exercise and then Sprint to other end and back
Front Squat and Press
Extended Arm Squat
Overhead Lunge Walk Run (with block) long way around to short wall
Incline Merkin (without block)
Decline Merkin (without block)
Wall Sit with overhead claps (without block)
Merkin with hands on block
Peter Parker with hands on block
Parker Peter with hands on block
Wall Sit with overhead press of block
Kettle Bell Swings
Bent Over Rows
Clean and Press
Mosey Around Parking Lot and head to Brick Pile. Put Blocks up and Mosey back to Flag
Wide Armed Merkins
The extra weight that we carried around symbolized the extra weight Veteran’s carry every day. They gained this weight while protecting our freedoms. The least we can do is say thank you.
COT – Moment of Silence and then Prayer
Prayer Request: Cousin Eddie’s Mother-in-law is not doing well
Moleskin: Thank a Veteran, not just on Veteran’s Day but every day you see one.
