YHC was nervous to Q his first kettlebell workout and so the eyes were open long before the alarm was due to go off (thankfully remembering to turn it off, personal experience suggests that M’s do not like that). Kettlebell videos were watched on youtube, pictures of Russian military men demonstrating form were viewed, some of the moves were practiced (in the spirit of if you can’t Q it…) and subsequently discarded and eventually a plan was made up which went something like this for the 8 pax that showed up in the fog to swing some bells:
Quick lap around the track (which it turns out is .2 of a mile)
SSH x 25
IW x 20 (many pax excited for the Star Wars debut)
cover off on your bells
10 full start/stop swings
The format was explained as some type of movement and then some type of 10 swings, could be regular 10 swings, could be one handed could be doubles with your partner while they plank, so you can just imagine the variety!
Also mixed in a random round of LBCs x 20 and on the partner work the planking was almost as tough as the movement.
A couple of crowd favourites at the end, thanks to Witch Doctor for the Swing and Squat, to Mighty Mite for the Kettlebell burpees (crowd pleaser in the most sarcastic way), Goblet squats and a few swings to finish it off.
The pax kept it moving pretty well, so much so apparently that the site Q himself left with 15 min to go, mumbling something about some type of youth athletic competition, anyway thanks for bringing the speaker and letting YHC Q it was truly and honour. Destiny really hung in there, many grunts and groans were heard throughout, names will not be mentioned on those since likely the YHC was a big part of it. Always good to see Mighty Mite who makes YHC feel like a homebody, looking forward to seeing you move over the holidays brother. Witch Doctor was quietly getting at it and Geraldo was throwing the Ruck on and around (literally) throughout, kudos on that one! Ickey issued the 55lb challenge to YHC which I at least tried (gotta know one’s limitations, not as strong as Ickey just yet). Anyway, comments always expected below.
