If you’re looking for a BOGO deal on a warm Sunday afternoon, you’ve come to the right place. This is a combo backblast/preblast for Saturday’s Olympus where we concluded Ickey Shuffle’s Fighting Shape plan and the next kettlebell program that will start tomorrow at Swole and continue for the next 6 weeks at Swole/Meathead/Olympus.
I pulled up to Calvary around 6:55 and found a few cars waiting for me. The Worm, Kryzezwski (I’m never going to spell that without some sort of autocorrect helping me), and Mighty Mite were there, but only BLC’s swagger wagon was in attendance. I began unloading the bells and Tupelo’s native son came jogging up. #strong
After a quick disclaimer (don’t hurt yourself), we started with the warm up:
Sufficiently warmed up, it was time for the main event:
Rest 2:00, then repeato for 5 total rounds.
Rest 2:00, then repeato for 5 total rounds. Wild Turkey wrapped up his 8 mile ruck and jumped in for the last 2 rounds. #badtiming
A few minutes left, so we went right to the Mary portion of the morning’s activities:
The End. Circle up with the Rock pax, led by Magoo. The Rock had an FNG (Percy, from Memphis) and BLC took us all out.
As promised, we’ll be starting a new program tomorrow at Swole. I’ll be the Q and Mighty Mite will Q at Meathead on Wednesday (now that it’s written here, he has no choice). The next program is another one from Joe Daniels, who came up with the Kettlebell Only Muscle Gain (KBOMG) program we did a few months ago. You know what that means: a multi-colored spreadsheet with lots of video links and some weird exercises. This program will have a mix of singles and doubles, so either bring doubles to the workouts or check out the program the night before. The Q could also post on Slack the day before if he was really on the ball…
Here’s the link to the Swing this Kettlebell Complex ProgramSwing this Kettlebell Complex Program. It is structured as a warm up (Q’s discretion), a main complex, and a finisher. The Q can add carries, Mary, or additional KB work if there’s extra time.
