08/23/05 CCB Masters Gloves, Nekked, Paddles

It’s been way too long since I had my Masters team do a fistglove set. Today is the day! The idea of this main set is to experience what it’s like to add surface area to your hands. You do a short set with fistgloves. Then you repeat the set with nekked hands. Then you repeat it again with paddles. We did not count strokes today, but if you want to add an extra challenge to this, count strokes on the fistglove set and try to maintain the same stroke count with nekked hands AND with paddles. Have fun.
