  • The kettlebell was the originally used as a measuring weight in 18th century agrarian Russia.  Not long after, a couple of proto-F3 comrades get the CSAUP idea to swing them about in a show of virility and strength.   Three hundred years later they still swing.
  • The first KB workout is in the books and no one threw out a back, crushed a skull or broke a foot (though there may be a few bruised radii or ulnae and some sore backs).  TClaps.  A little more discussion on technique today to aid KB FNGs.  Expect less yapping and more swinging in future weeks.
  • Tights bullying is having salutary effects:  only Crab Cake and Callaway in tights this morning.  YHC will not rest until Skunk Works is a tights-free workout.  I am TR, and I approve this message.
  • YHC took in an abandoned 20# DB.  It will be at Death Valley tomorrow.
  • Own up to your Leatherneck commitment by 11-15 or be replaced by an alternate.  Link is HERE.

Enjoyed it. The Lougainis and Mason Twists were a strong finish. Though I’m thinking I may “chip a few pounds” off my kettlebell… #muscles-I-never-knew-I-had.

Don’t worry. The bullying doesn’t bother me. The temp will be low enough at Death Valley tomorrow to bring my tights back out of the closet. With age comes wisdom, right, Calloway?
