Good turnout this am-disclaimer, warmup then head to the short wall for some step ups then on to the thang at the bank-today it was gonna be Walls of Jericho. I went to the Snowbird Wilderness Outfitter BE STRONG men’s retreat this past weekend. I had heard about it before but finally was able to make it work-highly recommend you try to go. Look it up or as Sparky, Freight, Medicine Woman, and probably a few other Folsom regulars who may have gone or heard about it. We learned about Joshua and part of the discussion covered the story about the walls of Jericho so that was our thang today.

7 exercises with 7 reps each then mosey around the bank X 7 rounds. I tried to help teach the “how to count” thing to Fountainhead but he wasn’t having any of it. He came up with his own method and did just fine. At some point he will likely Q a workout and will survive I am sure.

Here are our 7 exercises: Merkins, Squats, Big Boys, Imperial Walkers, Mountain Climbers, LBCs, then…….(drumroll please)…….Jillian Michaels. The JM’s were a definite crowd pleaser. We got thru it, hit some more step ups, then finished with the COT. Along the way Roscoe entertained us with random info on Jillian Michaels and various appropriate and inappropriate jokes. I tried to give some background on what I learned this weekend about Joshua and suggest you read about Joshua when you have some time. Key words to focus on are obey and courage.

**HONORABLE MENTION: Watt’s Up posted with a bum knee, stayed the whole time and did his own thing in the parking lot at Pelican’s. What a great example-don’t let what you CANNOT do interfere what you CAN do.

thanks for the opportunity to lead-Whoopee
