Is it me?


3 hardy (enough) souls roused themselves out of their fartsacks and arrived to pass around some kettlebells.  Here is what happened.

Mosey to loop for some solo KB work, Mudface Q

First exercise, which will be called the KB pivot–PAX line up single file, first PAX lifts the KB, turns at waist (feet don’t move) and hands off to PAX directly behind, then runs to end of line.  You only need 1 KB for this, and we used Mudface’s 40 pounder.  Repeat process until you get to the end of the loop, then repeat going the other way to starting point.

Second exercise, called the Lumberjack, PAX lines up slightly more than shoulder width apart.  First PAX lifts KB from outside their left foot, up in one smooth motion to extend above their head, then down to place on outside of their right foot, where next PAX retrieves it and repeats.  PAX runs to end of line after doing exercise.  Continue until end of loop is reached, then reverse until starting point is reached.

Switch Q to No Idea

11’s with Goblet squats and that thing where you lie on your 6, lift KB up, down behind your head, then back to center and press up.

Mosey to SF for COT, numberama, namerama, Chewy took us out.



Mudface sent out a message yesterday that MANNdate lacked a Q for today, and received no offers to Q.  That was a clue to how this morning would go.  YHC texted Mudface last night suggesting a joint Q, and Mudface hinted that he had some solo KB workouts in mind.  When YHC arrived to find only Mudface and Chewy in parking lot, it dawned on him that perhaps the reason no one took the Q yesterday was because no one else was coming, which was quickly confirmed.  YHC has Q’d twice this week, with a total of 2 other PAX showing up–does YHC smell worse than normal?  The solo KB workout was made much tougher with just a few people, as by the time you ran to the back of the line it was your turn to grab the KB again.  YHC also had more planned, but the solo KB exercises ran long.  Mudface promises to bring these back soon, along with a few others.  There was a lot of mumble chatter during COP because we couldn’t hear Chewy count, so Mudface picked Chewy’s least favorite exercise and we did it until he started counting.  The solo KB workouts really emphasized form, which was great and ensured the PAX paid close attention.  Hope to see greater numbers next week when some of the regulars return from trips and health concerns.

As usual, I have No Idea what I’m doing.
