Marisa: Andrea hates me right now.I could never hate or dislike Marisa. She is so appropriate, polite and personable but, man, she behaves as if she works for Beat Downs “R” Us.
Me: Hate is such a strong word. How about intensely dislike?
With two kettlebells, we did front squats, 30 box jumps, the suitcase deadlift (15), 25 box jumps, calf lifts (15), 20 box jumps, cleans (10 right and left), snatches, 15 box jumps, lunges, rows and then push-ups.
Let me back up and say that I was already wasted from the warm-up and by the time we got to the third round of front squats, box jumps, deadlifts, calf lifts etc., I was speechless.
I was just about green with envy when this one woman snatched 36 pounds especially since I don’t know how to do the snatch but I only had a few moments to dwell on greenness because a whole lot of my energy was devoted to not falling too far behind the three women who were jumping and swinging like crazy.
Last week, this woman asked if we could do the Turkish Get-Up towards the end of the class and I called her Little Miss Turkish Get-Up as in Little Miss Goody Two-Shoes.
As we walked toward our cars, LMTGU said That was a tough class. I didn’t even think about asking for the Turkish Get-Up today.
