With the Rooster going on and Montross having the Q at Painlab, I wasn’t sure how many PAX would actually show at Folsom for my Q on Saturday. But true to form, Folsom never disappoints. 19 total PAX, including 2 FNG’s that Sparky has been EHing for a couple of weeks, eager to push the rock for the next hour. Here’s what we did:
Full disclaimer…I’m an idiot, modify as needed, etc, etc..
Warmup with SSH’s, Don Q’s and Moroccan Nightclubs, all x10IC then head for the tennis courts.
Time for a little DORA with a twist…AKA SWIPER!!
Partner up and both PAX start together on the sideline of Court 1. Partner wheelbarrow across first court and then perform 20 Burpee’s as a team. Reverse positions for partner wheelbarrow across second court then perform 100 Merkins as a team. Continue in this fashion across all six courts with 20 Burpee’s at third court, 200 LBC’s at fourth court, 20 Burpee’s at fifth court and 300 Squats at the last court. When your team is finished, don’t plank for the six, go back and pick them up.
After this we did a little cool down running by doing Figure 8’s through the courts. Run the baselines and Karaoke across the sidelines of each court to the opposite end. Rinse and repeat with NUR instead of run.
The parking lots at Folsom are almost as bad as the one’s at Mt. Hollywood, so while we’re on the courts let’s go ahead and do some core work. Grab a different partner and perform the following:
One partner runs down and back while the other does AMRAP of the called exercise then flapjack. Exercises were:
Mosey down to the amphitheater for some work on the upper and lower body. Three round of each of the following:
1 min wall sit then 10 Hip Slappers
20 Jump Squats, 20 Dips, 20 Rocky Balboa’s and 20 Derkins (no rest between exercises)
Finish it off with a mosey to the park entrance and back to the start.

How many of you have tried to EH someone on to have them say something like, “I need to get in better shape before I join you guys” or “I would just slow you down or be way behind”? I heard a motivational quote the other day that offers a good response. I don’t know who said it, but I like it.
“Dead last finish is greater than did not finish, which trumps DID NOT START!”
Convergence 3/30 at Folsom, 7am start time
Nomads going to AG Middle in Charlotte 3/9 check Slack or Twitter for meeting times and place for Clown Car

Sargento’s family had multiple family members pass in the last few days
Chief’s friend has a child with spinal bifida
Welcome Bo and Luke, two FNG’s that Sparky EH’d and Madden named. Not sure they’ve ever seen the Dukes of Hazzard, but it’s definitely fitting coming from Folsom.
Thanks to Montross for allowing me to Q. Folsom is a great AO and if you haven’t had a chance to post there I strongly encourage you to give it a try. The mumble chatter is nonstop, the fellowship is great, the workouts are painful and the Coffeerama is the best in all of F3.
YHC took us out.
