Spring Break


Five strong snubbed Spring Break convention and converged early in an elementary school parking lot to throw around some kettlebells. Here is what happened.

The Thang

Mosey to school entrance for COP:
* big arm circles, IC, X 10, forward, backward, sideways
* hip circles, IC X 10, clockwise then counterclockwise
* invisible jumprope, IC, X 20
* mountain climbers, IC X 20
* copperhead squats, IC X 10
* merkins, IC X 10

Mosey to track for Four Corners. Exercises were:
* Turkish get-ups X 10 (5 each side)
* goblet squats X 20
* one-legged rows X 30 (15 each side)
* kettelbell swings X 40

Circle-up with our backs facing. Pass kettlebells clockwise like a one-way American Hammer X 25; reverso X 25.

Catch-me-if-you-can around track. One partner performs death crawl, while the other partner carries kettlebell around the track.

Mosey to VF. Numberama, namerama, YHC took us out.

It was a beautiful spring morning, offering little excuse, for most of us, to evade a workout. Three of five were LIFOs this morning, but only just. Mud Face, Spit, and Chewie came in hot, just in time for COP. YHC was especially impressed with Chewie’s first post to Manndate. He certainly could have used Spring Break as an excuse, but he didn’t. And he pushed himself hard the full 45 minutes. Well done. The apple does not fall far from the tree.

YHC was pleased to hear grunts throughout the Turkish get-ups, but the sounds of struggle didn’t keep Spit from maintaining his usual place in the lead group. Opus flew through the second round of Four Corners. YHC knows this is his Spring Break, too. The dedication is noted.

  1. Great to have you Q again Helix! It’s been to long. Awesome job!

    Really enjoy the COP this morning. It seem to help straight out those muscles we would be using today.

    Glad to have Chewy out as well!

  2. Ouch! Please don’t forget to email or text me if you plan to attend the 2.0 workout at Gridiron on Saturday. We need a headcount of kids to make sure we have enough treats on hand.
