CROSSFIT SUFFOLK: Powered By SPARTAN PERFORMANCE

Steve L. and his young padawan!

THE OTHER PANDEMIC

THE 10,000 KETTLEBELL SWING WORKOUT Some of us have gone through this workout with good results. If you are stuck in the house with a kettlebell it’s a good time to give this a go! IT’S NOT 10,000 SWINGS IN ONE WORKOUT. Don’t be silly.

YOU PROBABLY DON’T NEED TO WEAR A MASK WHILE YOU RUN

FACING the wall is the RX (“as prescribed”) version of this exercise. Start in a push-up position and “walk” your feet up the wall. If you find this psychologically difficult try the below version, back to the wall. If it is physically impossible the below version will be as well.
No Handstand? Do this.
THIS THE THE SPRINTER LUNGE WITH KNEE RAISE
Scale this to a box, a step, an ottoman or a chair
Scaling the one-legged squat
GO TO 6:09 OF THIS VIDEO. There are about a thousand videos of “reverse plank”, or so it seems. This is the only version that I like. It’s NOT the one you see. You need to go to 6:09 of the video. The Reverse Plank is facing upward (looking at ceiling), you make contact with the back of your heels, your arms(palms up) and the back of head ONLY. Squeeze (“pinch”) your shoulder blades together the entire time you are in the reverse plank.

    Great comment day yesterday. Who knew the combination of Norris and lentils would generate an outpouring of love. I love when I go check the site and see comments. It makes me feel connected to everyone.

    Great to see Bevin up and about. Glad you are on the mend. Hopefully we will all see each other soon.

    Steve, next time you workout I insist you wear matching tutus. What a cutie!
    {BTW why does it look like there is 4 feet of snow outside Steve’s window in April?}

    Happy Friday y’all.

      Janie,

      If there’s 2 things that get the people going it’s food and Norris!

      Everybody loves to eat and everybody loves themselves some Norris.

    Amie,

    When read “Georgetown” I thought, “Hmmm..I like the way that sounds.”

    I may submit to get Holbrook changed to Georgetown. 🙂

    You can never go wrong with lots of kettlebell swings. Good job!

      I will sign that petition.
      Instead of the Georgetown bulldog mascot we will have the Finn-bar mascot. T-shirts for everyone. Or should we get Finn-bar masks? Look at that face! Whose my goodest boy? And I mean Finn not Georgetown

    Jane’s comments are awesome.
    Amie, I will gladly change my address to Georgetown, send me the petition lol .
    George I will definitely bother you about the kettlebell challenge. I’m having a hard time not working out even though I know I need to rest and recover. But man do I miss lifting somewhat heavy and somewhat faster then slow lol.
