After a recent Q at Old School YHC knew that a Folsom Q was in order as well.  The land of beards, trucks, excessive mumblechatter,  and “candor”.  YHC arrived after setting up a pain station on the way in and was immediately met with “you aren’t in a truck” and “you don’t even have a beard!”  While all the trucks were parked on the right side of the parking lot, YHC put his sedan on the other side all by itself and was shamed for this move as well.

Unfortunately, my 2.0 had “borrowed” my JBL speaker and the bluetooth wasn’t connecting immediately when it was time to start the workout.  (Technical Difficulties)

Gear Wrench hit me with “I remember my first Q too!”   You have to appreciate good candor!

Once the music started playing, we opened up to the patented “Raining Blood” warmup to get the blood flowing and then moseyed to the tennis courts.  We alternated bear crawling one tennis court and then doing hand release merkin burpee long jumps across the next all the way to the end and then moseyed back.  Once we regrouped we moseyed to the flag at the front of the park for the pledge.  Then we moseyed to the parking lot for the Thang:

Pick a parking spot.  Each spot had a sheet of paper with a number of reps for an exercise.  These included 10 burpees, 10 8-Count Bodybuilders, 20 Squat Jumps, 30 merkins, 40 LBC’s, 60 calf raises, 50 Plank Jacks, 70 seal jacks, and 80 Flutters.  After an exercise take a lap around the lot and return to the next parking spot to the right of the original space.  Most PAX were close to finishing two rounds.

At the bottom of the concrete bleachers, 10 lunges each leg and then step up to the next stair and do 5 squats on each step to the top and do 10 more lunges each leg.  We then moseyed back to the start for some Mary led by Sarlacc and then closed with this:  All Pax try to get to 100 reps of each exercise with the first PAX hitting 100 calling it out so the rest stop.  Wichita was the early favorite to complete 100 merkins.  I am not sure who finished first but Hacksaw jumped up and let out a scream of motivation.  I think the next exercise was 100 mountain climbers and then we closed out with 100 High knees.

Due to Hacksaw being today’s war daddy as well as getting in EC and his enthusiasm to attach each rep like his namesack “Hacksaw Buzz Sawyer”, he earned MVP for the workout.  Great example Hacksaw!

Lots of prayer requests:

We followed up with a quality breakfast at Time Out.

Happy 4th of July men.  We are blessed to be Americans and to live free!
