It was a beautiful Saturday morning at Folsom with a strong showing of HIMs. On this morning, we had an 80’s themed work out highlighting a few events in a decade that was lead by the our 40th President Ronald Reagan.  We that knowledge we kept it simple. The reps will always by 40.

To start, we honored two great boxers. We staying in the lower lot and did Mike Tyson on one side of the parking lot and Rocky Balboas on the other side. Westside looked at YHC in disgust and shame. There was no proper warm up and the struggle was real.

We continued back and forth with the 40 Rocky Balboas and 40 Mike Tyson listen to:

  • Eye of the Tiger – Survivor
  • No Easy Way Out – Robert Tepper
  • Pushin’ – Frank Stallone
  • Gonna Fly Now – Bill Conti

The next song was the Airwolf theme song and that was our queue to take a quick mosey to the amphitheater. There we honored the fall of the Berlin wall by doing Australian mountain climbers and wall sits. As we work through the reps back forth, a PAX would take a cinder block and throw it up the hill and then down. YHC expected for the cinder block to break as a visual to the Berlin wall falling, but not by the method of which it happened. Mayor threw the block like he was in Highland games shattering as it landed. Beetle Baily sure has an arm, he was throwing the shambles of stone all over the place.

The playlist continued on with:

  • Looking For Freedom – David Hassellhoff
  • 99 Red Balloons – Nena

Once the Sweet Child of Mine from Guns and Roses came on, we wrapped at the amphitheater and headed down to the lower parking . Here we did dips and steps ups to honor Live Aid. A concert that generated revenue for famine in Ethiopia.

The playlist continue with:

  • Money For Nothing (Live at Live Aid, Wembley Stadium) – Dire Straits

The Ghostbusters theme song played next and it was our queue make our way over to the lower lot.  Mayor was 1st. Please congratulate him. There were tears of joy at the accomplishment that was achieved in this act.

At the bottom of the  parking lot we did LBC’s at every other parking spot. Tator Hole really shined. This man can do LBC’s quickly and  a lot of them.

The playlist continues on with:

  • Little Red Corvette – Prince
  • We Built This City – Starship

Our last stop was the upper shelter.  This is were we spoke of the wild diets of 80’s. The cabbage diet, the grapefruit diet, and the liquid protein diet.  Wichita gave us his thoughts and we listened.

We wrapped up the playlist with Eat It by Weird Al Yankovic and took the short mosey to start.

We did the the pledged and completed the COT.
