It was a good morning at Folsom with the avoidance of a skunk we started out with a basic warm up losing up the shoulders. After the warmup it was time for the best middle school game created. Dodgeball.

We had 10 balls of 5 different colors. If you got “out” you had to perform the exercises to get back into the game.

  • Red Ball – 10 Merkins
  • Blue Ball – 50 LBC’s
  • Purple Ball – 50 Calve Raisers
  • Yellow ball – 10 Hand Release Merkins
  • Green Ball – 5 Burpees

Gearwrench was out of the gate with clever throws and insane acrobats. The HIM sacrificed his body out there. The clear MVP.

Stogie had his moment getting Gearwrench with the Burpee ball when he wasn’t looking. Gearwrench looked like Tommy from the Karate Kid when that ball from Stogie hit him.

The wise Oompa Loompa stood close to the net hiding in plain sight and getting people out left and right. We learned the Westside had no clue of the rules of dodgeball. He would slap the ball away with his hand not realizing he was out. He got the hang of it has time went on.

At halftime, we did a round Iron hulks counting up to 10 merkins. There was a nice burn in the shoulders now.

Back to the second half, Pony Boy was getting frustrated as although YHC is fat and slow, YHC does have hands.  The second half was much slower than the first. The quantity of exercises began to set in.  The burpee ball was the devil.

Once time was up, we fellowshipped back to the flag for COT and pledge.
