I'm totally excited!
For anyone who cares, you may know I've been pining about a kick-ass holiday where I get exhausted beyond belief.
This is what I will be doing.
Be sure to watch the video clips because web page sales pitch is just annoying as fuck. There is a video clip menu to see some amazing stuff in small doses.
Holy. Shit. 3 days with the Evil Russian.
I can't wait until Pavel kicks my ass.
(some points made here:
yeah I linked to Superfriends cuz that's where I wrote all that shit and I'm not writing it again)
I think I'm in love with Pavel.
He looks just like my first IT boss who was a wrestling champion in high school and a workout freak. Instead of doing work, some days we would go on these rollerblading trips where we would stop at the park and do a workout on the monkey bars. What a life. He had this friend who had a French girlfriend who was bi- and they threw us together to see if we would fuck. She sat in my lap in the back seat of the car on "field trips". sigh.
There are stories I haven't told...
We're just coming back from a day in Seaside OR, stopping in Portland for a night. We ate too much almost everywhere, and the only exercise was digging in the sand by the ocean.

So are you combining kettle balling with the hacking course? A true mind and body experience!
One thing I wished I would have learned was not to let go of the weight above my head. It hurts. I hope they cover that in your class.
Have fun. Be hard.

"One thing I wished I would have learned was not to let go of the weight above my head. "
Ah. That explains it.
> Ah. That explains it.
Why I have to replace so many weights because they get dented? Yes it does.

Yeah Ward, I can't sit around on the beach more than a day or two, even though I fantasize doing that for long periods.
Sounds like you had fun. That's what counts.
SoP, I can't afford to do the IT thing and the physical thing. The physical thing wins.
It isn't that I think kettleballing is so great. I'm sure it will be a wonderful experience. What is cool is meeting Pavel, someone who became successful and has inspired others to follow him.
Plus having him kick my ass to new heights.
It is not so easy to push yourself past your limits. It is very cool to have someone else push you a bit and discover how much potential you have.
People who haven't been to the edge don't really understand this concept. I imagine by the time you are 30 you have had some sort of experience with it. If you haven't, you really don't know what you are missing.
This "going to the edge" experience can be mental, physical. Nothing like thinking you are going to die--and then you don't. ')
This is not an "adrenaline" thing. It is something other than that.
I'm sure someone has a link handy that makes my fun, exciting thing seem pedestrian.
Go ahead. Ruin it. That's what CoT is all about.
> This is not an "adrenaline" thing. It is something other than that.
If CoT doesn't understand that, then they're all morons and not worth your time.

I like using the kettlebells -- they will definitely kick your ass. Much more effective than dumbbells.
But I don't think I'm ready for something like in the videos...

"real men play golf."
Somewhere on Pavel's site (dragondoor.com) you will find a video on how kettlebells improve your golf. BWAAAAAHAAAHAAA! Pavel sell you SOMEthink. Somethink for you, you skinny pencil neck no muscle having noodle penis!
Yeah, xampl. I have work to do. I'm not ready, either.
Today, my legs feel like rubber.
> Somethink for you, you skinny pencil neck no muscle having noodle penis!
kettleballing can improve your penis?

i am not particularly ripped, but the one thing I am not is pencil necked. I have trouble buying shirts I can button up. It's a pain in the arse.

That's cool. You don't have to buy into his game. It's something _I'm_ into, for reasons I know not. Pain, exhaustion--if he were training on swinging from trees, I would probably sign up.
If buttoning the collar of your shirt causes you to have a pain in the ass, you're putting it on wrong.
