YHC had never Q’ed a Kettlebell workout before — thanks to the PAX for their understanding and patience!
We started out with an aimless kettlebell mosey to emulate the section of the movie when the fictional band gets lost within the maze of the arena and can’t find its way to the stage.  The rest of the workout was devoted to the theme of 11’s.  Nigel Tufnel, lead guitarist for Spinal Tap, is showing his amp to the interviewer and explains that his amp is special because all the knobs are numbered to 11. (see the clip).

The hardest part of being the Q is knowing how long something is going to take.  Elevens take a long time…  Modification was necessary, but the PAX took it in stride.

We ended up doing 77 ww2 situps this morning for those who are participating in the May challenge.

On a side note, thanks for Mudface for teaching us the correct way for doing Boat Canoes.
