10 PAX showed up this morning to get some work in at Folsom. For my first Q, I struggled with coming up with something that would push all of us. I noticed sometimes at Folsom and as I visited other AO’s that Q’s would use music in the exercises.  It dawned on me that it would be better to push to a time over a quantity for my first Q. Hence “Mandelbrot Set – The Story of Big Pappy” was born.

Warm up – Some toy soldiers, daisy pickers, and  Moroccan Nightclubs

The Thang:

Act I  Pappy’s Childhood Years – Run to 4th tennis court and do  20 x XCrunches  then run back and do 20 x LBC’s .  Repeat until Act I is over.

    • Hunger Strike  – Temple of the Dog – I was poor.
    • Sabotage – Beastie Boys – Reason I was poor.
    • Peaches – Presidents of the United States – I moved from the north to the south.

Act II Pappy’s Young Adult Years – Run to 4th tennis court and do 10 merkins then run back and do 10 shoulder touches. Repeat until Act II is over.

    • Mandelbrot Set – Jonathan Coulton – Found that I had a god given gift of understanding advanced mathematics
    • Drunken Sailor – Blaggards – I liked to drink
    • The Gates – Da Vinci’s Notebook – Found that I could code and loved to write code
    • The Most Beautiful Girl in the Room – Flight of the Conchords – Met my M.

Act III Pappy’s Adult Years – Run to 3rd tennis court and do 3 burbees then run back and do 30 monkey humpers. Repeat until Act III is over.

    • RE: Brains – Jonathan Coulton – What it feels like working in a cube everyday.
    • The Backpack Song – Nerf Herder – People with multiple kids would understand.

    • God’s Gonna cut you down – Johnny Cash – For F3 Nothing.
    • Dust in the Wind – Kansas – Your my boy F3 Blue
    • Better Man – Pearl Jam – For F3 Pearl Jam

I overheard a PAX saying he was not sure if he was going to throw up from the music or the workout. Mission Accomplished.

Thanks to all that came out. It was a pleasure to lead a group of fine men that have lead me over the past several months to better health and a better lifestyle.
