Name that tune

It was rainy this morning, so much so that Dirt and Watts Up suspended their EC until YHC arrived for the beatdown. We even drove over to the covered area at the school building in order to stay dry.

After a head count it was determined that 4 guys were manly enough to come out this morning. Rocks were found and pushed. Here’s what happened…

With YHC being pressed for preparation time, I went with old faithful, The Deck Of Death! We did whatever the card said to do. It was fun.

Probably the more important part of todays workout was that there was musical accompaniment to go along with the beatdown. YHC has had this playlist ready since January but hadn’t found the right time to bless the HIM with it. Unfortunately, Big Pappy coincidentally beat me to the punch with his 80s TV show theme song playlist several weeks ago. Gotta strike while the iron is hot! My TV theme song list was a little broader in scope though, covering shows from the 50’s all the way til now.

The songs we heard this morning included the themes from Rawhide, Mr. Ed, Sesame Street, What’s Happening!!, The Andy Griffith Show, The Monkeys, Stranger Things, The Brady Bunch, Knight Rider, The Mandalorian, The Muppet Show, The Addams Family, Twilight Zone, Mission: Impossible, Fresh Prince of Belair, Gilligan’s Island, Hawaii Five-0, The Jeffersons, The Simpsons, Sanford and Son, GI Joe, Scooby Doo, The A Team, Growing Pains, Miami Vice, CHiPs, Family Ties, Yellowstone and even the Olympics. We didn’t have time to get to Fat Albert, Inspector Gadget, The Pink Panther, The Golden Girls, The Flintstones or The Beverly Hillbillies but rest assured, the hits will be back.

Thanks for the opportunity to lead today men. I hope you had fun!

Voting Irregularities

I put a poll on GroupMe for input yesterday: Rain was expected this morning so should I 1)Q the whole workout in the shelter or 2) stay in the rain the whole time. The final vote was 9-3 to stay in the rain. Despite having 12 votes, only 7 posted on a wet and chilly morning at Folsom. I think there may have been some absentee Kotter votes!!!!

No FNGs, we did a quick warmup and off we went.

11s on the hill between the parking lot and driveway to the old animal shelter – Merkins on one end, Jump Squats on the other.

Mosey to the flag pole. Roundup called some more Merkins while I grabbed the six. Elbow to knee in cadence and b
Big Boys to give the six a quick opportunity for a breather.

Short mosey to the upper parking lot. Originally, I wanted to do more 11s but time was running low so we just did the exercises – 2 sets – 15 each in cadence of Mike Tysons and Tiger Squats.

Mosey to the ampitheater for wall work. 3 sets of Australian Mountain Climbers and Elbow to Knees – 15 in cadence. As a bonus, Roundup called 30 Hip Slappers.

Mosey back to the parking lot.

Prayer Requests: MW’s family and friends, Pappy’s family, Stogie’s dad, all the men here today, the 5k

I heard the rain pouring at 4:30 am amd I knew it would be a rough one. It was, however, a great time spent with great men and I think I got a little better. Thanks for the push from you all and for the opportunity to lead!
