Folsom Jail Break

Today 9 men entered the Gloom to get better, luckily all 9 made it back alive.  YHC zigged when the PAX expected a zag, and there was plenty of lively conversation about the increased gravitational resistance to the normal direction the PAX takes, this made the Q smile just a little.  After the warm up a long mosy to the start point which was kinda like a saturday night dance party with the street lights flickering on and off.  From there a ridiculous semblance of a suicide with pain stations, it is march after all and how better to get in the March Madness Spirit.


20 IW IC
20 Don Quixote IC
25 LBCs IC
25 Rosalitas IC



Mosey to start point, then on about 400m stretch with 3 stops, 1 at the start and then 1 at each of the next 3 speed bumps somewhat evenly spread apart we did an increasing number of exercises at each stop with a return back to the beginning after each set.

Set 1 – 10 Merkins
Set 2 – 20 Heels to Heaven
Set 3 – 30 Squat Jumps
Set 4 – 40 LBCs

A round of planks and Flutter Kicks (50) while we waited on the 6.

If that was the shampoo there was a conditioner planned, yet time would not allow this time. A mosey back to the flag with a little race action at the end, too close to call. This left us just enough time for some peoples favorite round of Mary.

#TheStorm: Cinder Blocks And Bellies

16 PAX (including 2 FNGs) showed up for a cinder block beat down.

This was my first chance to post in awhile due to my coaching schedule, my sons sports schedule, and other things that have come up.  I figured I might as well Q on my return. My goal was to make this a good upper body workout.  I enjoyed the mumble chatter today and really enjoyed Mayor and Godfather discussing who’s belly helped them the most when doing curls with a cinder block.
