Our leader Justin here at Cantankerous Old Coots keeps us hacks jumping. I toe the line pretty well remembering all the old tricks I learned at work for keeping the boss happy. Bob is another matter altogether. Bob is a ‘my way or the highway’ kind of guy and sometimes it’s all Justin can do to keep Bob focused and on target- or even present. I rail about Justin from time to time but so far, he’s been the one keeping the wheels on the bus here at COC, slave driver though he may me.

What with being a stay at home Dad, web entrepreneur and running his own blog, you can imagine that Justin’s life is full of challenges. Mere mortals like me constantly ask;  How does he cope? How does he maintain his balance and joi de vivre amidst this busy cacophony? I confess that I don’t have a clue. It would be beyond my meager abilities which are strained daily just pulling my weight here at Coots.

Still from time to time even Justin needs to fill his tank and refresh his spirit. He retreats to a quiet place and lets his spirit flow. He plays his kettlebells.

Justin will never acknowledge his talent. He disclaims any praise or attention and refuses to perform publicly. But his skill is legendary. No one has yet captured Justin performing either on video or audio. He keeps his light under a bushel, so to speak. Still, careful research has uncovered kettlebell masters who inspire and encourage Justin to grow his talent. You can get a small idea about the power of Justin’s talent from these videos . These powerful performances will give you an idea of what a kettlebell master like Justin can do.

Sometimes whtn Justin gets into his groove, the spirit takes him places where mere mortals only dream of going. Listen to those mellow sounds and then tell Justin that you want him to share his music with the rest of us.  Mellow out with this second video and then send him a message here at Coots or at Justin’s Brainpan. Tell him you want to know the magic of kettlebell music.  Talent like Justin’s deserves sharing.

  1. Wow…the wife and I have had two “sound Baths” at the Integratron out by Joshua Tree park, California. Just like the ringing bells sound. So deep and resonating throughout the whole body. A must see if out there.

  2. Hansi,
    I wonder if this is another of Justin’s enterprises?

  3. Not one of my deals ralph. I never qite looked at kettlebells as wonder music makers. I guess I need to work out a module for that as well, I am close to putting out a stay at home dad course, I should include some kettlebells. and grouting backsplashes…..
    Thanks for the encouragement Ralph but I never knew I was that much of a tyrant, I thought you were carrying this site on your own.
    It all hurts my brain right now

  4. Justin,
    Someday you will stop muffling that talent and let it out. Now about those oil stains. You won’t those posts when?

  5. oil stain posts next week provided Bob can survive the weekend!
