Here is our weekly “5-Bullet Friday”; a list of CF related stuff we’re enjoying or pondering here at MtB. As often as we can, we’ll bring you a guest Master who’ll share their “5 bullets”.
Who we’re following on social media…
We’re getting all gymnasty after reading today’s “Meet the Masters” interview with @pamelagnon.
We’re following @cfgymnastics, @coachkeithpettit (a gymnastics coach of 30+ years) and Pamela’s collaborator in a new project – Zach Long.
Comp we’re entering…
Battle of Britain Online Qualifiers
One of the UK’s top Throwdowns starts with the January Qualifiers. Why not ramp up your Open prep by taking part? One Masters category (M&F) for anyone 40+ by 21st April (day of the Finals).

What we’re putting in our kitbag…
A CaliCure Hand File Sand Bar. They’re freshly available in the UK (the stock sold out in 48 hours, though) and allow you to gently sand down your callouses to prevent ripping. Follow @calicureuk on instagram for updates on new stock – your hands will will thank you!
Quote we’re pondering…#1
One from our current favourite read – Tribe of Mentors:
“The disease of our times is that we live on the surface. We’re like the Platte River, a mile wide and an inch deep.” Steven Pressfield
Thinking about ways to get deeper…
Quote we’re pondering…#2
Another one from our current favourite read – Tribe of Mentors:
“If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.” Marcus Aurelius (Emperor of Rome and Stoic Philosopher)
We’ll be remembering this the next time we’re deep in the pain cave!
Have a great weekend!
