A familiar number for this KB AO, but some different faces. With no Q on the schedule, YHC served as host. On a humid and dark morning, 3 noble warriors and their assorted weights tackled the gloom.

A ready five, unbowed by overnight thunderstorms, posted for this morning’s Circus Maximus. Following a brief exchange of (un)pleasantries (poison ivy is not an STD), we started the day with Burpees x 5, SSHs x 20, IWs x 15, Merkins x 10 (stopped at 5 in error but came back with another 5 later), Copperhead Squats x 10, LBCs x 25, Weighted Standing Side Bends x 10 (each side), DQs x 15, and Arm Circles (single arm alternating, big only, forward and reverse). Stay in place for 8 minute Even Minute Odd Minute (EMOM) starting with Kettlebell Swings – 15…

Seven of the faithful, including one newcomer to Circus, met early morning last Thursday with kettlebells in hand. White deer entered the school parking lot, located very close to many residences, leaning on the car horn. Soooo, we may be looking for a new AO soon. In any case, this is what went down (more or less) after YHC Johnsonville took the Q: Standard rounds of warmups, including SSH (of course), Don Quiotes, Cherry Pickers, Merkins, LBCs, Arm Circles, etc. Run the loop. Mosey with KBs over near bus pickup/dropoff area by school. Jack Webbish COP, except 1 burpee, 4…

No Q signed up and an empty parking lot up until the last minute. Thankfully Loose Goose came to the rescue, and Johnsonville came in hot after he realized his chauffeur was fart sacking. YHC, having started to map out a personal workout, took the Q and off we went: COP30 SSH15 Russian soldiers15 helicopters20 HRM10 2x Suzanne Somers, each leg40 2x LBC20 APDMosey to the bus loop for a beast, remaining under weight at all timesLawnmower pullsSit ‘n pressesOne handed swingsHalosLungesHigh pullsRun the bus loopHuddle up for some Mary15 skull crushers20 overhead pulls15 2x weighted American hammers25 weighted APDBoat/canoeCOT…

YHC showed up super early for this one and waited for someone else to take on the kettlebell challenge today. No one did, so YHC went for a run that went something like this. Run South on Pump for as long as the sidewalk allowed. Take some side jaunts into various neighborhoods to get to 4 miles. See ya in the gloom!
