The Real Swirly Posts at Circus


Nine of the faithful posted on a humid morning at Circus Maximus. Both staff parking lots are being repaved, so the pax gathered on the south side of the school instead of the staff parking lot near the bus loop. This is how the workout went, more or less:

COP warmup sequence

10 minute EMOM rotating between (i) right kb lunge, right kb snatch, right kb side lunge, and (ii) standing row.

10 minute EMOM rotating between (i) left kb lunge, left kb snatch, left kb side lunge, and (ii) halo.

Mosey to basketball court for a brief intermission from kettlebess.  Do traditional suicides, then bearcrawl from end to end.

Remainder of workout was an AMRAP sequence consisting of 5 burpees, 20 kb swings, 20 sit and press, run around gate that was about 100m away, rinse and repeat.

We were joined today by another Swirly, who hails from Raleigh. Since that Swirly claims to have been named 4 years ago, we will henceforth refer to him as the “Real Swirly.”  We discussed renaming RVA’s Swirly, and several excellent variations were suggested, including “Chunky Swirly”, which is defined by Urban Dictionary as follows:

“A bully manuever. The act of shoving a victim’s face into a toilet bowl full of feces, urine and paper as it flushes. As in: Alvin failed to provide Hank with his lunch money. As a punishment Hank gave Alvin a chunky swirly.

No renaming action was taken. Great job, men! Jville
