Misfire’s Nearly Flawless Q at Hammer

16 men made the wise decision to get up early today to better themselves and their fellow PAX this morning at Hammer. Work was done. Mumble chatter was strong. The Q was nearly flawless. The only possible error by YHC was forgetting to grab my cell phone to record the Name-o-Rama until after the Count-o-Rama began. I’ll do better next time, I promise.

Conditions – 43 degrees, pretty nice for January

3rd Round Push

RA’s little runner’s arms were getting tired, so we did 10 squat ladder burpees instead of merkins. Same thing – 1st one with 10 squats, 2nd with 9, etc down to 1.

3rd Round Pull

  • 5 pull-ups, 10 iron cross, 15 SSH OYO

Name-o-Rama (only slight mistake by the Q here, but he’s really good)


Hammer seems to be a place of very set habits and routines. Deville is always late. He’s lucky Wally stayed back and waited on him because I was going to hide to try and punish him for his tardiness. He’ll figure it out soon. Gaston’s beard is always sweaty. Good thing he can take a shower after the workout…oh wait, his hot water was out at home. He cheerfully explained how he left his storage room flooded by his hot water heater to come to the boot camp. I hope nobody ran into him today. McNugget always attempts to get too close to everyone throughout the workout. Very handsy dude. He also always wears 3 too many layers. You would’ve thought it was -10 degrees based on what he had on to start. Pinkman always cheats on his reps. He basically skips, flops, and rolls around on the ground for 45 mins. He’s probably not going to be sore tomorrow. Zima always wears Tennersee clothes. I mean you can set your clock by these things. Like. Clock. Work.

Finally, the PAX didn’t realize it at the time, but this nearly flawless workout tricked them into happily doing the following reps:

  • 165 merkins
  • 55 squats
  • 75 pull-ups
  • 150 iron cross
  • 250 SSH
  • 165 abs movements in 6MOM


  • Welcome Three Way from Charlotte.
  • Dealers Choice on Thurs.
  • Prayers for Bankhead, the Leighton’s, Wally’s friend Erica, and Detour’s grandfather.
