Triple Triple Nickel (wanted to call it the Colt 45 but that’s already in the exicon)

YHC had a really well thought out, elaborate Q planned out, but then thought “that never works.”  So, Plan B: the ole’ Triple Nickel with Burpees always gases everyone.  What if we did three Triple Nickels in the same BD?


  • SSHs
  • Sun-gods IN CADENCE
  • Reverse Sun-gods IN CADENCE

Note to self: gotta talk to Exile about teaching proper Sun-gods counting form at the next Q School…


The Thang:

Triple Nickel #1

  • 5 Burpees
  • run up three stories of stairs
  • 5 Burpees
  • run back down the stairs
  • rinse and repeat for 5 total sets

Mosey over to the trolley tent that is suspiciously close to the hill that goes up to Gunnin Rd…

Triple Nickel #2

  • 5 BIBS (Bonnie Blairs, Incline Merkins, Big Boys, Squats)
  • Run up the hill
  • 5 BIBS
  • Run down the hill
  • Rinse and repeat for 5 total sets

Mosey back to the parking lot by the flag

Triple Nickel #3

  • 5 Mike Tysons
  • Lt. Dan down the parking lot (Lt. Dan description from the exicon: A Squat and 2 Single-leg Lunge combination in ascending rep counts of each, usually up to 10. From Forrest Gump, Lt. Dan “ain’t got no legs.”)
  • 5 Mike Tysons
  • Lt. Dan back down the parking lot
  • Rinse and repeat for 5 total sets

We didn’t quite have enough time to complete the trifecta, but had enough to understand why it’s called the Lt. Dan.


Several of us on the way to becoming new dads, or dads to even larger families.  Very cool stage of life, and very much a stage of life where we need to lean on the brothers around us.

Got a nice regular south side crew at The Colosseum these days and I love the vibe here.  Everyone works hard; everyone encourages the man next to him; and we have great coffeeteria!
