For Whom the Bells Toll

Recommended Posts

Ordered some kettlebells. Ended up ordering from Amazon but it will take a couple of weeks to get here. Three different vendors, three different brands. 10, 20, 40 lbs.

 

In the meantime I want to rig something up and get started. I too want to be on the verge of puking and have my lower back act up.

If this wasn't a callout to @Burton and @Kimbo, I don't know what it is. lol

 

I'm not really into fetish porn.

 

About the only thing I really like is watching women of similar age to me getting taken to the bone zone.

 

The only problem is that they are always having sex with dudes who look either  12 years old or 35 and it's called stepmom either way.

 

That doesn't really do it for me but it's all that's out there.

 

Where's the "hey, these two met at the farmers market and are going at it like normal people" type of porn?

 

Maybe that's the new fetish or something?

I've noticed an interesting fetish trend...women who supposedly have their head/upper body "stuck" under something...sometimes it's the edge of a bed, sometimes it's under the sink. I guess it's sort of like "rape-lite" or something? To me it's just plain odd.

May I recommend jerking off with your non dominant hand while eating a bone in ham and and wearing a 75 lb weighted vest? 

 

Expert level is to run in place while watching All In The Family.

It's really dumb.  I saw one where she was at "stuck" in a fucking washing machine.

 

Who the fuck watches this shit?

Is that really a fetish? I think we’ve all found ourselves unwillingly having sex while stuck in a household appliance at some point, right. Right? Guys?

 

I've found myself often referring to your mothers as washing machines because of how many loads they're always taking so kinda?

I'm thinking about ordering some, too.

 

Did you pick a specific brand? Or should I just order whatever's cheap?

Order whatever is available the soonest.  Most are cast iron, so it doesn't matter what you buy. I think one or two where Amazon Essentials

I can definitely feel the 200 from yesterday in my hamstrings and glutes.

 

I did 300 this morning with my piddly 5kg dumbbell. Those 50 rep sets are quite the cardio, but I think I like the 10/15/25/50 rep scheme better than just doing 4x25 since I need the cardio. Honestly I might just move to 25/25/50 depending on how things go with the heavier weight.

 

I am going to try to escalate at 100 per day until I am doing 500 for a few days before moving to the 12kg kettlebell that is currently being shipped to me. It is crazy to me that even doing these with essentially no weight is enough to make me sore. Not sure if that is a testament to how effective the movement is or how out of shape I was. It's crazy to me you guys are doing 500 of these at 20kg+.

You guys are making me want to buy a kettlebell. The worst thing about the pandemic for me has been the gym closure, which has made me a fat slob. I just went for my first 5km jog this weekend and it was the hardest thing I've done since getting back into shape after breaking my ankle. 😩

When did you break your ankle? And how did it heal up? Back to normal?

I broke my ankle in the fall of 2012 playing racquetball. Broke the end of my fibula off and tore all the ligaments connecting my leg to my foot, resulting in completely unhooking my foot from my leg (other than skin/blood vessels). Had reconstructive surgery and it took about 6 months before I could really start running again. It has completely healed now and there are only two residual side effects:

1. I have a metal plate + screws under my skin on my ankle. This causes me pain when sitting with my legs crossed and wearing high top sneakers/boots because the metal plate pinches my skin against the ground/shoe.

2. I have limited ankle dorsiflexion. This causes issues doing proper squats without decent sized wedges under my heels because I'm both asymmetrical and unable to go sufficiently deep.

Got 240 in 12 sets (so, x20) in 27:46. Avg HR was 133, max 174. Thinking tomorrow should be a lower volume. 

 

Observations:

 

- Even after 2 weeks of swings and light DB work, my arms are swelling. My arm comfortable fit in my bloodpressure cuff before this week. Now the damned thing is ready to pop off everytime I use it.

- My chest-in spite of not doing any anterior chest work-is tightening up and thickening up like I am.

Got my wife's carnival-sized tent up in the back yard for the kids to chill in tonight. Gonna make smores by the fire pit and try and chill. Week 10 has been the worst week of this whole scene, by far. Fed and watered the garden in advance of the blistering heat wave approaching the west coast.

Did my first day of 500 this morning, but it was broken up by the needs of my baby, so i had much longer recovery between a couple of the sets. Nonetheless, this means that tomorrow I am going to go up in weight and down in reps and try to work my way back up.

Decided to get right to it this morning, since the heat is coming on, now. Had a cup of coffee and then did 200 swings. Kind of felt shitty, TBH. The last 2 sets required more time to recover, and then I couldn't get my HR to recover for longer than I wanted. Probably should have hydrated before getting down with the swings.

 

10Sx20R in 20:30. Avg HR 124, Max HR 160. 

 

Now it's time to hide inside and try to stay cool.
