Yeah, a lot of the moves have military analog (this one especially).

Speaking of Spartans, I'm just finishing up a teaching company course on the Peloponnesian War.

It's really quite excellent (and pricey, wait for it to go on sale for 70 bucks or get it for free from the library).

I showed my wife this move tonight and she in turn taught me a wonderful variation. Squat deep on the pull back and pop up as you thrust on the 45-degree angle.

She called it Spear the Horseman and it captures the move perfectly. Smile

I love this variant. Works the whole body at once. We'll be doing it regularly.

As a side note, we tend to squat deep when doing Churn the Butter and Tuck Bales also. I just didn't think about adding it to this move. What a great feeling!

That is a nice idea... simple, whole body, and with a direct "historical" analogy.

Hey, there's dignity in manual labor -- at least as much as in killing people, I think.

Somehow working on a train doesn't have the same primal appeal after a day of dealing with co-workers and bosses... Twisted Evil
