Hammertime

Okay, I just bought a 16lb sledge over the weekend for striking. It is fairly heavy, and I consider myself fairly strong.

What in god’s name would this be used for?

You could seriously whip ass at that carnival game where you bash the gophers as they come up.

Dude I can hardly do sessions on the tire with a 16 pound sledge.

The man that could do “sessions” on the tire with a 150lb sledge would have to be like 700lbs of lean mass.

A 16# sledge is a key to the city (anyone see SWAT?).

I’d use it to intimidate the punk a$$ boys that want to date my 14 year old daughter.

grab the handle at the very bottum with one hand. hold it up high in front of yourself (like a front lateral raise) and then pivot your wrist and lower the hammer towards your nose. only using your one hand…

So you can wear a polyester vest and not look too gay.

We used to do that with an 8lb. double sided axe. It’s all fun and games till someone gets hurt. Then it’s a sport!
I have a 16 pounder from when I used to break concrete. Still works well for fixing lawnmowers, making miscelaneous adjustments to almost anything, and is more fun than duct tape.
