If This is a Preview of What’s to Come…

  • QIC: Feud
  • The PAX: Sasquatch, Gladiator, What Up, Crotchless, 4-Way, Big Bird, Feud

7 HIM of Fleming Island rolled into the gloomidity for their shot at the Iron Pax Challenge Week 0 “warm-up”.  When YHC arrived to measure out the field for the 400 m run portion of the beatdown, he thought to himself, “this humidity should make things…. fun.”  Ok, so he really was thinking of another descriptor, but how can you not have fun when doing IPC with friends


  • SSH x20 IC
  • Squats x10 IC
  • Merkins x10 IC
  • BBSU x15
  • Bonnie Blairs x5 OYO
  • Burpees x5 OYO (for the late arriving Big Bird)

Now that the Pax know what’s on the agenda today, we got to work…

The Thang

It’s the IPC pre-season, and Week 0 is upon us.  When YHC heard about the beatdown, he thought it sounded awfully familiar… with the emphasis on awful… Come to find out it was the same beatdown as Week 1, IPC 2018. 

For time:

Four Rounds (cue the Rocky music to help keep us going):

  • 50 Squats
  • 40 Big Boy Sit-ups
  • 30 Merkins
  • 20 Bonnie Blairs
  • 10 Burpees
  • 400m Run

After smoking Week 0 of the IPC, the Pax moseyed to the play-ground for a 6-pack ladder, repeating at the top:

  • 5 pull-ups/1 werkin, 4 pull-ups/2 werkins ….. 1 pull-up/5 werkins…. 5 pull-ups/1 werkin

Return to COP for Dealers Choice

  • Crotchless: Raise the roof and Bonnie Blairs (really?)
  • Sasquatch: Monkey Humpers and Michael Phelps (now that is more like it)
  • What Up: LBAC backwards and Burpees (seriously? Bada Bing, we need to talk)
  • 4-Way: LBAC forwards and a standing 10-count (now that’s what I’m talking about)
  • Feud: Lyndsay Lohans (even better)


Awesome work done by the men of Asgard.  They killed the IPC Week 0 beatdown.  All agreed that it sucked, but they were looking forward to what is in store for the upcoming weeks. 

Big Bird stepped forward and reminded us the importance of consistency.  Two years ago, he was smoking the IPC beatdowns.  Fast forward to today, he admitted being an example of what happens when you are not consistent with keeping fit or eating right. BB brought up the passing of Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther among others), and how life is short.  He encouraged the Pax to be a positive influence on others while we have the time.  That is what makes us HIM.
