Slippery Bells at Skunkworks

15 hearty souls thrived in the morning drizzle and slung some metal at Skunkworks on a morning that made the Q feel right at home.

After Brown called in injured with a “tennis elbow” I was left with coming up with something to burn a few calories prior to the New Year festivities. Poor Brown was getting abused after bailing on his Q on a mass email. Watch out for a rename when the lad returns to the fold as “Serena” and “Martina’ could be contenders and who knows where it can deviate from there…
A few technical issues on the Pill front and timer front today with the steady drizzle but it wasn’t long before the hip-hop hoorays were pumping the pax through the rounds. The drizzle took its toll more so on Busch apparent “60 pounder” which flew through the air during the alternating swings narrowly missing the high tech gadgets in the center of the circle. When the kettlebell finally came to rest the number 60 had fallen off revealing a cork like substance for all to see. We may need an official scale at the next Skunkworks to verify the true weight and substance of the bell in question…
Other than that good work today from everyone present.

I guess it’s progress that I survive this beatdown.

Thanks Busch for hanging back with me and pushing me to sprint. #ISI

I was seriously winded by the end and not feeling so good. Didn’t spill merlot though, but felt like it would happen.

Great workout Bulldog – way to keep us moving and doing a sneaky amount of burpees.

Good to see Drop Thrill pushing it and rethinking that supper from last night.

Best thing about the NannerBurpees is that, after all of the situating, positioning, aligning, and contemplating, you end up doing like two total burpees for the entire workout.

Burpees are not a kettlebell exercise…Unless you put your dry hands on top of two humongous kettlebells while you do a few.
