  • Beautifully cool dark morning to stand among real men and get the day started right. YHC was impressed with the fact that Mr Roper & Shakedown maintained Mumble Chatter for the entirely of the Knollercoaster. YHC was not so impressed that none of the PAX kept the count going during the 8-ct Burpees …extra Burpees were rewarded. Some commentary was made that YHC’s routines rarely leave the PAX a moment of rest – which will be taken as a complement, thank you very much! YHC enjoyed partnering up with Fresh Prince and Handshake. Solid work fellas! And it turns out that shooting “Rock” every single time will get you into the final rounds, but not enough to beat out the wiley ways of Last Call & HoneyDo. Strong win boys. Keep posting fellas, and keep headlocking those sad clowns you just KNOW need F3. SYITG!

  1. Enjoyed my first visit to the Forge, solid AO. The Box Jumps after the Donkey kicks were not pretty!

  2. DTH-excellent Q and always learning new warm up exercises such as the Harry (dancers?). We definitely need to shout out better for the 8 count burpees… I was gasping for air after 10! I had to bring Opus to make sure we could find the Forge! Will be back to this awesome beat down venue! Cheers fellas!

  3. It was fun watching Tobit, who makes everything look easy, almost fall over with the Hairy Rocketts. Always good to know a PAX members Kryptonite.
