Adventures in Kettlebelling


7 HIM’s ventured off campus along with their 30 pound metallic friend. Getting-squashed-by-cars-while-bearcrawling mumble chatter lightened the mood on this dreary and humid day. Here is a brief summary for your viewing pleasure:

Mosey to the side of the High School for Warmarama: Ukranian Soldiers, Helicopters, Monkey Love Makers, Plank Jacks, Mummy Kicks, Alabama Prom Dates, Runner’s Stretches. Back to the Flag to pick up the kettlebell.

Exercise One: Indigenous People’s run – man in the back does 5 upright lifts, passes the kettle, then run to the front. We crossed Forest Hill Avenue and set up shop in DTH’s driveway.

Exercise Two: Kettle and Hills

Round One: One PAX runs up the hill and back with the Kettlebell. Remainder do ab exercises: WWII sit ups, Flutter Kicks, Hello Dollies, Crunchy Frogs, American Hammers, Heels to Heaven, LBC’s.

Round Two: One PAX does lawnmower pulls with the Kettle. All others go up the hill completing various exercises: Bear Crawl, Bernie Sanders, Lunge Walk, Karaoke, Side Plank Walk, Squatting Side Shuffles, Bernie Mummy Walks.

Exercise Three: Indigenous People’s Run – back to the flag. Man in the back does Sumo Squats with the Kettlebell.

Exercise Four: Kettlebell Ring of Fire. PAX holds plank while everyone completes 25 bench presses with the Kettle.

Mosey to the lower hill for Exercise Five: Murder Gorillas across the hill followed by 5 overhead lifts with the Kettle. We finished three rounds, then reversed direction for an extended version.

Back towards the flag – One minute of Victory Hill to finish things out.


Florence took us out.

Final Thoughts: Fun times at the FORGE with a lot of running for a quasi Kettlebell workout. Way to push through fellas. I considered “Watch your Manhole” as a backblast title. Will put that one in the queue for a later date. Lots of great events coming up:

Friday: RAMM Gears bike/other modes of transportation. The Murph is happening at Twin Team

Saturday: House Party’s VQ at Rock N Roll! Come out and support him. School of Rock (kid’s workout) to follow at 8am. All ages are welcome. Morning Wood run is also happening at 6:30 that day if you want to complete the trifecta.

Workout at the Bridge in C’ville.
