Weather – 74 degrees, 94% humidity, overcast, WTF, summer is back?
Splinter was supposed to be our final Q of the month and was going to serve as the last installment of 3 straight #Reynolds Week(s) boot camps at #Hammer, but a call to the bullpen was made after his Fri football game was rescheduled for Mon night in Cheraw. YHC stepped up to take over in Splinter’s absence. Don’t worry though, Splinter will bring the madness on Thursday! T-claps to the convincing W at Cheraw for River Bluff.
Anyway, 13 faithful PAX, including 1 FNG, 1 repeat visitor from Charlotte, and the legendary Subprime, descended on the unseasonably warm and soggy gloom at #Hammer. After a little warm up in the COP that included some horrific cadence from YHC and some ridiculing from Ice 9 on a few of the exercises, the real work began. The PAX pushed through and killed it in these generally poor conditions.
Warm-up fast mosey lap around the football field, then to middle of field, circle up

Slow big boy situps (3 counts down, 1 count up) 39

Mosey to 50 yard line of football field, line up across 50 with partner
100 partner merkins (50 each, 1st partner does 10 while 2nd partner holds low plank, flap jack until each get to 50, don’t let knees or body touch the ground until both are finished) then sprint to end line and back with your partner
100 partner squats (50 each, 1st partner does 10 while 2nd partner holds air chair, flap jack until each get to 50, don’t come out of squat stance until both are finished) then sprint to end line and back with your partner

25 Russian twists (count 1 side) OYO, right into
Rinse and repeat
Done, mosey to COT
Thanks to Ice 9 for coming back to #Hammer for a 2nd time in 2 weeks while he was down in Columbia for training. He definitely made his presence felt. Don’t be a stranger if you are back in town again.
Welcome to Tom Bolton (FNG Bear Back). Per Supbrime, Tom managed to block his own punter’s punt with his ass at Dreher while serving as the punter’s protector (called the bear back at Dreher) so the naming routine was short and sweet.
I’ll be sure to work on my squat cadence before my next Q…
