Off Grid Grind


The Forge School welcomed four pupils of the Gloom for a Field trip day. According to the hazy red sunrise, here’s where the PAX ventured to find their beloved beatdown:


SLAUGHTER START: Bearpees – x10 reps of bear crawl x5 paces followed by a Burpee

COP #1:

  • Circle up for the usual Tryhard Warmerama – a comprehensive review of the Lexicon, getting everything stretched and warmed up, top to bottom

COP #2:

  • Mosey the 1/4 mile to Tyhard’s House 
  • Grab a couple Bricks and mosey to the bottom of THE Stratford Hill
  • x100 Shoulder Tap Brick Merkins
  • x200 Brick Am. Ham’s (single ct)
  • x300 Squat Overhead Brick Press (audible after the first 100 to be just squats with the bricks in hand)
  • Moving partner carries bricks via Bernie Sanders up hill to mailbox (x40 yards), then simple Mosey back down

COP #3:

  • Keep your Partner to surmount the hill
  • P1 – Brick Lunges (carrying x4) uphill
  • P2 – x5 WWII (feet uphill), then Bear Crawl to catch P1 and switch
  • Return Bricks

COP #4:

  • Mosey BTTF
  • x1 min of Flutters OYO


  • Counterama # 4
  • Namerama
  • Announcerama (see Comments)
  • YHC took the PAX out in Prayer

NMS: YHC enjoyed the company of a few of the finest Forge PAX. The inspiration to bring the PAX over to YHC’s house came after the Snuff clown car yesterday, but in true Summer Tour style, Snuff chose Timberwolf this AM and missed the field trip. Your loss bro! JK, we’ll return to that massive hill again sometime soon. Thx for sharing the morning with me gents! SYITG, YHC, DTH
