Hamlet brought the pain from the get-go at DMZ.  YHC was hurtin’ from the off as the CDDs, then dips & derkins demanded some mumblechatter early on.  Then came COP, but it was not your momma’s COP as Hamlet threw in the Circle of Death….and there was much silence among the pax.

The 180 foot crabwalk from home plate to 2nd base was particularly unsavory – thank you very little Hamlet.

Great to have 3 FNGs with us; one of whom – Kiwi – lives in Greenville and will hopefully join the Swamp Rabbit pax in the near future.  Hope to see Love Boat and Soft Top back at DMZ among other workouts – good work fellas.

And T-claps to Hannibal for his first weekday post – strong work for the heretofore weekend-only warrior.

Nicely done Hamlet.  Look forward to you Q-ing many more DMZ sessions in the coming months.

Good stuff, Hamlet. I’ll never look at an SSH the same after that Circle of Death nonsense.
