Class Juggling

Because I had to honor a cake order, I had a choice of either making the cake first, after office, and then heading to RPM, (coz on Wednesdays I have dinner with inlaws, in a far away place), OR, get the workout over and done with after work, and then bake, before going off for dinner.

After perusing the online schedule, (which isn't necessarily always updated, but to a large degree, say 95%, reliable), I noticed that Mr Cool was teaching pump. That kinda tied in with my plan, but actually, I probably would have gone for pump regardless of who was teaching. It just made it slightly less torturous that it was Mr Cool. But actually, I was wrong. Physically, it was probably more torturous. The guy is seamless!!! You'd think the bar and weights were part of his anatomy. He does it with such ease, not hint of pain, no grimace....Mr Robot is also like that, but Mr Cool's weights are more, eg, 10kg each side for chest, etc....He did that biceps track with the 24 singles at the end, and looked like he was lifting a feather duster. I pity these replacement instructors, for the 45 minute class, coz the MJH crowd somehow have grown accustomed to the "10 tracks in 45 mins" thingie, and when Mr Cool went from Clean and Press to Lunges, there was an audible wave of disgruntlement, and someone shouted out, "lunges? noooo, triceps!". Mr Cool being super cool, took it all in his stride, and nonchalantly went on to do all 10.

Lionheart was there as well, as usual, carrying obscenely heavy weights. Should change his name to Atlas. (there, the fler who was carrying the world on his shoulders, in the Hercules labour tales, same series as where Cerberus appears. Incidentally, Cherubim, formerly known as Cerberus, has left the hallowed halls of FF. We will miss her. Joke aside, and bad nickname aside, she really is a lovely friendly person, and wherever you are, we wish you well!!!)

Eh, i also did Mr Cool's class in yr FPI's club yest. And he did the killer 24 singles too. so thats 2x 24 in a space of a few hrs. How does he do that?

Needless to say, we were all screaming in pain by the time 12 was up...
And he proudly exclaimed at the end, with his biceps all pumped up, that's the most singles EVER for biceps.

Thank you very much!

correction. OFPI. "outoing".

mr cool is really cool lah though. yes, he made that same announcement about 24 singles being the most in BP history. i think i can only manage about 21. he very clever, he broke up the counting into sets of 4, so its not so daunting. 4, 3, 2, 1...again, 4, 3, 2, 1..etc. if he had gone, yar, another 22 more, i think psychologically more daunting.
