Folsom is a unique type of place. The HIMs are proud, and why shouldn’t they be? They rock! The AO is sprawling with lots of different things to do. When I requested the Q from Wichita he asked if there would be a playlist. Does he even know me? As I was walking up to the circle of HIM before the workout I heard some guys ask where my speaker was. This is what happened…

Disclaimer – I’m a pro, do what I say unless you want to modify, then do whatever you need to do.

Warmup – Goofballs, Don Quixotes and the patented Sargento Right over Left. Most of these guys hadn’t seen this one before so it was pretty funny.

Mosey, being sure to pick up the JBL on the way past my car. Begin Killer Playlist!!!

Route 66 – Do Merkins at each light. When it was apparent we wouldn’t get to the required 11 lights YHC Omaha’d to include trees and even large shrubs (We want a shrubbery!!! See the clip with the Knights who say Nigh from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, it’s hilarious) so we could get the number. Mission accomplished!

Pledge of Allegiance

Mosey to the horse track where the big steps are.

Triple Nickel – At the bottom do Derkins, lunge to the top and do WWI’s all x5.

Mosey back down to the start and go to the tennis courts.

4 Corner Escalator – In honor of my dad’s 72nd birthday today, we would use that number as the guide.

  • Corner 1 – 18 Merkins
  • Corner 2 – 18 Merkins & 36 Lunges (some guys tried to forget about the Merkins)
  • Corner 3- 18 Merkins, 36 Lunges and 54 Flutter Kicks count R leg only.
  • Corner 4 – 18 Merkins, 36 Lunges, 54 Flutter Kicks & 72 CDDs.

Mosey in reverse to retrieve the JBL then back to the corner we ended the exercises on. Do it all in reverse! This was a great way to finish the workout and made for a lot of pain.  Even swole ‘ole Wirenut said that for a spaghetti armed runner I sure do a lot of Merkins. I’ll take that as a compliment! Thanks for the opportunity to lead men!
