9 headbangers came to Circus Magazine’s inaugural kettlebell workout. According to the groupies, the setlist went something like this:

Animal, Def Leppard: warmups of SSH, Arm Circles, Helicopters, Crunchy Frogs

Nothin’ But A Good Time, Poison: Walk to the courtyard and do some curls for the girls until the song ends

Dr. Feelgood, Motley Crue: Rotate through 10 Goblet Squats, 10 Guitar Strums, 10 merkins until the song ends

Dude Looks Like a Lady, Aerosmith: 10 Curtsey lunges with bell, 10 Swingers, 10 Jazzercise (no bell) each side through the song

Lick it up, KISS: 10 Lawn Mowers each arm, 10 Goblet Squats, 10 Dips (no bell) through the song

Run to the Hills, Iron Maiden: Step Ups with Bell, run to the hills and back during the chorus and repeat

Still of the Night, Whitesnake: 10 two count hammers with bell, 10 Headbangers (skull crushers), 10 Tawny Kitean Prom Dates

Hells Bells, AC DC: 10 Bench Press, 10 Sit and press, 10 WWII (no bell)

The Final Countdown, Europe: Partner up. One does Burpees while the other does a courtyard lap and switch

Here I Go Again, Whitesnake: Walk back to the flag, on six for ~two minutes of 6 inches and then reverse crunches

Lots of mumble chatter about wives and girlfriends and girlfriends of wives. This great music brings it out. That and bad gas. Great to see Handshake and EF Hutton join the fan club. A famous rock star once said: “It’s such a fine line between stupid, and uh…clever”. Not sure which side of the line this workout was on but hope it was fun.
