I just had the Folsom Q Saturday and noticed an opening in the schedule for Tuesday. I volunteered for the opportunity for back to back Qs. I have been posting regularly at Midoriyama and it has been a minute since I hit Folsom on a weekday. It was a good opportunity to see some of the men I haven’t seen much recently. Sparky must already be doing boat thangs as he was not there. Unfortunately, there was no Huck sighting either! However, 13 solid HIM showed up this morning to put in werk!

I gave the guys a disclaimer and got in a few reps to warmup. Westside, once again, was not there so I won’t go into the details here. I will only say it was a thorough and complete warmup.

Mosey toward the flag at the park entrance.  At each light pole, we do:
10 Merkins
10 American Hammers
10 Peter Parkers
We added a set at the fork in the road for good measure.  The guys got in some Mary as I grabbed the Six.


We take the scenic route back to main parking lot and, again, at each light pole, we do:
10 Merkins
10 American Hammers
10 Peter Parkers
I made a mental note that Spackle was getting it done. My man was cranking out merkins like Wichita does!

Mosey on to the Ampitheater for some in-cadence work!
3 sets each
25 LBCs IC
20 Flutter Kicks IC
15 Shoulder Taps IC
10 Hip Slappers IC
10 Dirty Hookups IC
Time limited me to only 2 sets on Saturday so we had to get in the full deal today. Ball Joint had some concerns on my shoulder taps so I reassured him that I did indeed complete every rep I called. For sure, if I Q it, I’m gonna do it.

Mosey back to the parking lot, burpees while Ball Joint got the Six.  I got 7 burpees in.  I am sure some guys got 8 or 9.

A few minutes left so we did a few rounds of Waterfall Merkins and then a few minutes of Mary. Sarlacc tried to hijack my Q and spent what seemed like 29 minutes doing things with our finters and arms, so I had to assert my Q authority a bit LOL. I wanted to make sure Spackle had a chance to call a few reps too!
