You Won’t Believe What NC Drivers are Saying about this Backblast

Twelve angry men came to rage against the machine (the machine being Brown’s ad-infested Pandora playlist, “Songs I Still Hate 20 Years Later”).  After an implied disclaimer and inferred acquiescence, we proceeded thusly:


  • 2H Swings x 20
  • SSH x 10
  • 2H Swings x 20
  • I Walker x 10
  • 2H Swings x 20
  • S/Low Squat x 10
  • 1H Swings x 10 ea side


Eleven (or as they say in Florence, “lebb’n”–one syllable with a silent N) Minutes of Moderate Discomfort – Don’t put bell down until the end, all exercises 30 sec each

  • Snatch – L
  • Snatch – R
  • Reverse Lunge – L
  • Reverse Lunge – R
  • High Pull – L
  • High Pull – R
  • One Legged RDL – L
  • One Legged RDL – R
  • Clean – L
  • Clean – R
  • 1H Swing – L
  • 1H Swing – R
  • Press – L
  • Press – R
  • 2H Swing x 2 (1 min total)
  • Viking Press – L
  • Viking Press – R
  • Louganis
  • Louganis (no press)

Core Circuit

  • Hanging Knees to Elbows x 10
  • Dolly with KB Press (until Knees to E’s return)
  • Knees to Es x 10
  • Flutter with KB Press
  • Knees to Es x 10
  • Pullovers
  • Knees to Es x 10
  • Glute Bridge with 1 Arm KB Press x5 ea side

Repeat 11 Min Complex and Core Circuit

COT (with KB locked out overhead)

The RumpleMoleskine

  • Nothing simple about a complex.  It was bad enough the first time through but second time was just plain hurtful.  Good work if you made it through to the end without putting down your bell or fast forwarding through commercials.
  • The keen observer will note that there is only 10 minutes of exercises listed. So sue me (the timer counts the transitions, too).
  • Rediscovered the hanging knee raise Qing Joust last week.  Those will stick with you for a few days. Like the Jelly of the Month, it the gift that keeps on giving.
  • Thanks to Brown for bringing the iPod Wallet, Speaker and Shave Kit his kids gave him for Father’s Day.  Good to have tunes distract us from the pain.
  • Good to have Splinter as Site FNG at Meathead.  We expect to see more of you (and less of your sleeves) in the near future.
  • TClaps to Stone Cold, at his first workout since FINALLY running the NYC marathon.  Came back with suspect stories of passing Tiki Barber at Mile 20.  Sure thing, big man.


  • Shoes
  • Joe Davis Run
  • Be on the lookout for Thanksgiving morning convergence news.
  • A51 Christmas Party preblast will hit the interweb in the next day or so.

Great work TR! 11 minutes doesn’t seem like much til you put a KB in your hand. Complexes is putting what we did nicely. Btw, the speaker is also waterproof, floats, has GPS, and a bottle opener. Costco gift of the year for 2012!

The music coming out of that speaker made me want to couple skate with you.

I audibled pretty quick and brought it home strong with Metallica. I hurried so you wouldn’t grab anyone’s hand!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
