Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing.

Tweet-E kept wishing he’d not eaten those three pancakes at I-Hop last night, and I think Tank ripped through the workout and left his Kettlebell in a hasty retreat…so now there is an extra one in the bunch for next week.  Podunk and Swirly had a great time at their first attempt at the Ropes & Bells…looking forward to seeing them out next week with I-Beam on Q!

Mr. Olympia and Flying Tweet-E

Conditions – 40s and clear

Tweet-E decided to pick the highest wall he could find (chest-high) to do his box-jumps.  He did them all (3+rounds!) and every rep on that wall.  I wouldn’t want to be in his house tonight…the PAX stuck with manageable height walls for a solid workout under I-Beam’s tutelage.

Arnold Schwarzenegger – Nov 17, 2003 inauguration as California governor
Early in your career, before you became Mr. Olympia, your legs weren’t on par with your upper body. How did you bring them up?
(with accent) “With legs, the key is to shock them to experience substantial growth.”

“Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given you by prophecy when the council of elders laid their hands on you. Practice these things, immerse yourself in them, so that all may see your progress.”
1 Timothy 4:14-15 ESV
