Max got some new, heavier kettlebells, and celebrated with a WOD designed to let us play with them (if we could).

Kettlebell Swing 18-15-12-9-6
Kettlebell Clean and Push-Press, each arm 15-12-9-6-3
Kettlebell Snatch, each arm 12-9-6-3-1

Swing: 2p - 2p - 80# - 88# - 88#
Clean/PP: 1p - 1p - 1.25p - 1.5p - 1.5p
Snatch: 1.25p - 1.25p - 1.5p - 1.5p - 1.5p

My shoulders are fried, and my hands very tender - ripped a little bit, but didn't pull any callouses off.

The new 80 and 88# kettlebells are pretty tough to use. The handles are thicker, very rough, and the opening is smaller such that putting both my hands in there smashes my knuckles together. Definitely not something I can do a lot of volume with with any comfort level. There's also a 97#, but that beast is just too damn heavy to get overhead.
