Climbing the Rep Ladder


Seven men of steel assembled at Circus Maximus to throw around the KB this morning.  Lots of fresh faces and for the first time ever, no audible flatulence (can you guess who was sadly missed?).  Here is how it went down:

  • COP
    • 30 SSH
    • 15 IW
    • 15 DQ
    • 15 helicopters
    • 10 HRM
    • 40 2x LBC
    • 10 Suzanne Somers –each leg
    • 40 APD
  • Lucky Bus Loop – do KB around the worlds while moving around the bus loop, stopping at the four quadrants of the bus loop, perform 15 reps of a certain exercise, adding a new exercise for each quadrant, with a total of 7 at the end
    • Lawnmower pulls – each arm (7x)
    • High pulls (6x)
    • Sit ‘n presses (5x)
    • 2x one-armed KB swings (4x)
    • 2x American hammers (3x)
    • Snatches (2x)
    • Weighted squat thrusts
  • Run the bus loop
  • Boat/canoe
  • COT with YHC taking us out

Solid work from the PAX.  T-claps to Mouse Trap for some solid headlocks.  FNG Tulip and Tobit did exemplary work for their first foray into KBs.  Honeydo slammed the 35 pounder around, and Offshore and Lighthouse quietly went about their work.  Not much mumblechatter.  This was one of those quietly deceptive workouts that really adds up.  Its cumulative impact is something the Ms will be grateful for later.  It was a privilege to start the day with these men. Do not be strangers to the Circus!

God is good all of the time!

  1. Thanks for taking pity on us and sparing the 8th round. This one was brutal. I still stand by the Swiss Miss name but welcome Tulip.
    Good to have our SOJ visitors.

  2. Great Q, Attila! Thanks for having us! I plan to return more regularly to Circus to keep getting better!

    Great work by Tulip (Ankur) on his first post. We’ll have to get him connected to F3 in NoVA, so he can keep posting!

  3. Surprised there was no mention of drive-bys by Johnsonville and Earthworm after the COT was already done? Were you trying to deprive them of the privilege of making the backblast?

    I’m disappointed they didn’t drive by during the workout and heckle the PAX, rather than after it was over.
