13 kettle bell fighters took over the MANNDate parking lot and engaged in a battle that went something like this…
Mosey around the parking and then circle up for the COP all IC- 30 SSHs, 10 copperhead squats, 30 LBCs, 10 don quixotes, arm circles

Sit-Up and Go
Pair up. One partner does sit-up presses while the other walks around the bus loop with kettlebell raised high. Continue until each goes around the bus loop.
The Beast Mother

Numberama, Namerama, Announcements, YHC took us out.
We had a record number this morning for MANNDate with 13 with the PAX. The parking lot was full of cars and everyone was ready to get to work.
The mumble chatter was kicked off by Emoji and he never stopped. He seems to enjoy yelling out “MY FAVORITE” after each exercise is announced. The FNG gave him a classic “What is up with this dude?” look that Emoji receives frequently from those who have never met the man.
The announcement and description of the Swing & Squat ladder brought mostly groans from the PAX except Helix. He responded positively and he backed it up with his hard work.
Mudface provided verbal assistance those who needed help with technique. He shared additional words with YHC and seemed to enjoy egging on everyone. That is one of his many gifts!
The PAX enjoyed throwing out ideas for the FNG. He sealed the deal when he said that he did not want to have any more children… “Snip Snip” was born! We also renamed another member of the PAX. He shared that he enjoyed playing pool so we named him 8-Ball. YHC is grateful that we didn’t fall into the pre-Helix trap of naming him “Black Balls” or something along those lines.
The PAX shared in lots of laughter and kettle bell pain this morning – a perfect combination!
