Weekend in New England

Weekend in New England

Thirty two men, including two FNGs, postponed their vacations to squeeze in one more Skunk before hitting the beach.  The have the fever and there’s only one cure: more kettlebell.


  • Plank
  • Log Roll 3x to left
  • Log Roll 3x to right
  • SSH x21
  • Slow Squats x 20 (3 ct down, 1 ct up)


  • Did a bunch of swings, alternating with jump squats (sans KB).
  • Did some goblet squats and one-handed alternating swings.
  • There were farmer lunge walks and some running, then backwards lunge walks with one KB (in goblet hold position).  Threw in some good mornings for the hammies…
  • Some Mary with KB.
  • Two-handed swings for 2 min to finish it up



Didn’t feel like the Q had the A game going for the Pax today–didn’t feel the usual creative juices flowing, so I was going to make up for lack of creativity with lack of common decency and just two-hand swing us all into a trip to the chiropractor.  But even that was didn’t work out as planned, as only 3 of 32 made it through the 3rd of 4th round up the pyramid (the plan was to go up to 100, then back down to 40 in 20-count increments).  So everything after the 80 swings–10 minutes in–was pretty much improvised on the spot.  It happens.  They can’t all be “Mandy.”  Sometimes you have to suffer “Weekend in New England,” too.
Still, there were many strong performances out there this morning, most notably by Wolfman’s lower GI tract.  #walkingfarts  
Glad to have Fishwrap join us in the 51 gloom, meeting his EH, Inky, the newest and most exquisitely tatted Pax in A51.  Probably not the best idea to borrow one of ‘Wraps bells the first time out.  He’s a bit freakish, you know.
Also welcome to FNG Clown Car, another Hempstead resident kidnapped from his house and stuffed in the back of M-Bananas’ minivan.  With as many clowns as that car has hauled, that’s got to be one foul smelling van.  Skunk-like, even.
  • A51 Fourth of July convergence at S. CLT MS, from 0700 to 0800.  No other workouts that day.
  • Back to regular schedule on Friday.

Must be burnout pal. You can only Q so many workouts in a 10 day period. Time for some other lads to step up and take the reigns. Snakebite, Good Hands, Busch, Chaps…the Q is calling!

For a makeup as you go routine my upper body is still feeling the many KB swings. Need to definitely get some new blood out there on Q. I am sure there is a Q in waiting in the clown car.

Crabcake, I’ve got it tomorrow at DV. lace em tight, I have a feeling we’re going to be feeling like a stock car by the time we leave. For the record that felt just as well planned and executed as ever. The Clemson Tigers tree ornament that TR let me borrow is marinating into my shoulders pretty well.

Yeah that felt like typical TR christening another FNG. He gets that look in his eyes whenever the clown car shows up with another newbie and he proceeds to KB-swing them into submission. Great workout. My shoulders are still burning. Good Hands Q coming soon to Day Zero.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
