AthleteI am Camille Leblanc-Bazinet and I have dedicated my life to CrossFit. AMA!

Jun 5th 2017 by CamilleLBaz • 24 Questions • 83 Points

We will be departing from Brussels, Belgium on July 1st as a part of the Mongolia Charity Rally, and we will be driving 11,226 miles to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia all in the pursuit of delivering an ambulance to be used in rural Mongolia’s fledgling healthcare system. We purchased an Ambulance last week, and had it inspected by a mechanic. Besides a few minor issues, she’s almost prepped for the journey. Our tentative route is below. It currently takes us through 23 countries where 20 languages are spoken, and 16 different currencies are used. If you have any suggestions for places to go, things to pack, skills to learn, please let us know. Otherwise, ask away!

Edit 2: Thanks for all the support guys. We'll try to answer the questions as soon as possible. I honestly didn't even think we would make it off the "new" page. I added the donation page for those who are interested. https://www.youcaring.com/onesmallsteppeandgohelpcharity-693232

Edit 3: Here is our playlist. Add some songs if you like! https://open.spotify.com/user/2g3n/playlist/4IaDXkaE85Kwju2Tgao5eE?play=true&utm_source=open.spotify.com&utm_medium=open

Edit 4: Due to numerous questions/comments, all donations and contributions we have received are going to a cash donation for the charity and towards the purchase price of the vehicle. All other expenses are coming out of our pockets.

Edit 5: Sorry guys, but it is getting pretty late here, and I've been at it for over 12 hours. I'll answer some more in the morning. Thanks for all the support!

Q:

Hi Camille, meant to ask this earlier but as a college student I have a hard time balancing school work and gym life. I saw that you earned your degree in chemical engineering. How were you able to juggle both at once? Thanks for doing this AMA for all your fans. :)

A:

When you're doing those pull-ups that landed you on the front page, which muscles are you NOT working out?


Q:

So I just google mapped it and it looks like the "fastest" route is only about 5300 miles. Why is it so important to more than double your mileage just to hit the 23 countries? You would go through 7 if you took this faster route (although a lot of Siberia)

A:

i think like during final.. i would put my fitness a little on the side like not kill myself in training but maybe just run to clear my mind for more study :) and when school is a little more relax i focus more on training... laos make sure you know exactly the order of your priority... ex I'm okay getting B-C at school but not okay not qualifying for the games ;)


Q:

My calves... lmao

A:

The route was a little bit of a challenge to come up with. Obviously we aren't taking the fastest route, but we thought it would be the prime combination of both sight seeing, safety, and speed. Going the Northern route, we would possibly pass through Ukraine, and due to all the conflicts there, we decided against it. Also, if we went farther North, we would spend a lot more time in Russia, and with the visa requirements for Russia, we decided it was easier to stay in Russia for the shortest amount of time possible. However, we decided not to go as far South as some teams. There are a few who are going through Iran! As Americans, we decided that would not be a good idea. As for the twists and turns in our route that seem a little random. We will be visiting some friends along the way, but when you're 3000 miles away from home, 200 extra miles doesn't seem to far to visit an old friend. Thanks for the Question!

Edit: Thanks for the Reddit gold!


Q:

I got to watch your heats live in San Antonio this year. A good friend of mine was also competing. The divide skill wise between the top tier athletes and everyone else was staggering to see in person. When you first started out competing did you get the feeling that you were no where near the same level as the the top tier athletes?

A:

No


Q:

Have any of you seen Long Way Round? It's not an exact match to your trip, but the first few episodes touch on the difficulties regarding paperwork, border crossings, and check points. I'm rewatching the show now so it just came to mind while reading your title, but maybe the series could raise concerns you might not have considered and provide some helpful tips!

A:

i think when i started competing and up to this day is was always just for the love of being part of it... back then i was just impress and inspired by the stronger athlete but i never felt not part of it :)


Q:

Hahaha that's why I said it!

A:

I actually came across that movie the other day. I haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but maybe we could get together as a group to watch it. It would probably be a good resource. Thanks for the suggestion!


Q:

Hi Camille! Just wanted to say hell of a job, I'm also a recently graduated Chemical Engineer, pairing that with your level crossfit must have been a hell of a commitment. Just wondering, how did you prioritise effectively and decide when one had to come before the other?

A:

What is the hardest exercise you do that appears easy to the average person, and what is the easiest one you do that looks hard?


Q:

Yo I'm from Mongolia and that's really tight. I'll be there in August if you wanna meet up!

Unfortunately Mongolia is very much still a developing country that is having a hard time catching up to the modern world. There is political corruption, alcohol abuse is rampant and we are landlocked so we simply sell our natural resources with no infrastructure in place to adequately grow as a nation.

It's the least densely populated country in the world, and the country side is very old-fashioned. Outhouses, wells and farming.

Thanks for making the country a little better. :)

A:

I think like you said its figuring whats you priority.. I think at a point i figured out i can go to school forever.. not that i recommend it hahaha but i don't know how long my athlete career will be... so i think my mantra for school became D for diploma at the end haha and i took off a lot of anxiety once i was okay not getting A in everything


Q:

Well I broke my wrist 3 months ago and so doing a handstand is super difficult for me to do.

Those sideways pull-ups and front-levers are easy for me but look really hard! Because if you haven't trained for it they kind of are.

A:

Great to hear from you! We would definitely love to meet up once we reach Mongolia in early to mid August. Please PM us, and we can try to set something up.

We appreciate the great thoughts and love to see people from Mongolia seeing this as well. Thank you!


Q:

What position did you play in rugby?

A:

Any advice on getting strong enough to front lever? How long can you hold one? Also do you rock climb at all? If you built up finger strength i feel like you would crush it.


Q:

How feasible will the upkeep of the ambulance be when it is in service in Mongolia? An ambulance that you cant get parts for isnt much help. Sorry to be a downer.

A:

number 12 or 13 i did both/ got tackle quite a bit hahaha


Q:

I climb v6-v8 and I can hold a 20 second front lever. Get ab slings and realllllly push your core on those!

A:

Good question. So, actually, that is a struggle with any vehicle in Mongolia. Unfortunately, their vehicle market is quite not as up to par with other European and Asian nations. So, we attempted to find a vehicle that would be more common to find parts with while also being in the market we were purchasing it from (Ford Transit). This is also where the charity comes in. Our cash donation, deposits, and the charity's resources will be utilized to maintain it long after we are gone.


Q:

Hey Camille! Hope you're doing well after regionals! Was wondering, what does your training schedule look like pre-open and post games? How many times do you train a week/day? And any advice to someone trying to get to the games/regionals?

A:

How long until you fully conquer gravity?


Q:

I can't help but notice your map showing you traveling through what appears to be North Ossetia and Inigushetia, what sort of precautions are you taking to handle the instability and corruption in these areas!?

A:

right now all my life is pretty much dedicated to train recover and eat well... i train around 6 hours a day right now with i wouldn't recommend anyone else to do lol unless they did qualified for the games... if you are trying to do better in the open or get to regional i would say make sure to focus on your weakness and build your GPP


Q:

Couple months

A:

I haven't heard many specific situations in those areas, but I have heard about just general corruption in that area. Are there specific things that have happened recently? I have heard about Chechnya and the specific issues they are having there, so we are planning to avoid it. As far as precautions, we are driving through there as fast as possible, as we have no stops planned until Volgograd. Do you have any advice or suggestions? We have a lot to plan for, so any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.


Q:

Camille! Big fan!

What's Dave Lipson's guilty pleasure movie that he cries in every time?

How do you take your Tim Horton's coffee when you're back in Canada. Do you miss Timbits?

Good luck this year! Hope you can fight your way back to the top of the podium. You're a great role model to young girls and women out there.

I got gilded?! Sweet! Thanks, internet stranger!

A:

As a former really fat guy but still currently kinda fat guy who goes to the gym 4-5 nights a week, pull ups are the one thing I cannot succeed at. Do you have any recommendations from a broader view of what I can do to get to a point where I can do real pull-ups? Killer videos tho man keep it up!


Q:

Ya, I don't see why people are being so snarky about this. It's okay to help people and make an adventure out of it. Fuck the haters I think these guys are awesome

A:

hahaha those are great question... dave mostly cries during transformer or rudy... hahah tim hortons is not for coffee but definitely for tidbits hahaha i do miss them a tone... my parents always bring me some back when they visit


Q:

Try doing negatives but for those of a heavier stature need to focus on building the tendons and muscles in isolation first because you'll get injured if you don't.

A:

I think you're awesome


Q:

Hey Camille! Thanks for doing this! I'm a big fan and will be rooting you on in madison!

How do you feel about the criticism that doing crossfit makes people prone to injuries, especially for beginners?

How long do you think you'll be competing in the games as an individual?

A:

Uhhhhh, do you fuck with the war?


Q:

How do you get back? That's a long walk.

A:

Crossfit is base on teaching movement in a rehabilitation way...we teach people how to move again via functional movement and the first effect of that should be being more prepare to face life and build an edge against decrepitude. People are more prone to injury by doing nothing and the reward is way greater then the risk... I think ill be competing for a couple more year and hopefully try tokyo in 2020


Q:

Lil Dicky!

A:

None of us are runners, so we aren't planning to Forrest Gump and run cross continent. Ulaanbaatar is our final destination, and we just booked flights to fly back to London from Ulaanbaatar via Beijing. There are no direct flights unfortunately. It's around 16 hours with the layover so it's not bad. I have heard of a few people taking the Trans-Siberian railway from Ulaanbaatar back to Moscow and then flying from there.


Q:

Hey Camille! Big fan! I've always wanted to know, in the 2011 CrossFit games, final event, iit appears your Concept rower malfunctioned. What was going through your mind during that final event?

A:

How long has it taken you to build your strength as you have?


Q:

How... How long did it take for you to figure out how to spell that?

Just kidding. Despite the naysayers, I agree, one of the points is to raise awareness, and donate a usable vehicle to a country in need of it. I look forwards to your pictures from your journey! Don't die!

A:

hahaha yes my rower wasn't working... in my head i was just hoping no one would see me cry but then i looked up and my face was a close up on the jumbotrone hahahaha so bad lol


Q:

Since High School, I am 26 now so I would say about 10 years or a little more.

A:

Thanks! Be sure to follow us on Facebook or our website to keep up with us this summer.


Q:

Excited to see you compete at the Games this year!

When you have a training day or event that goes south, what helps you rally and get back in the game?

Also, who have been inspirational people in your life and why?

A:

How was your strength in high school?


Q:

How much effort is required so that you all can get the necessary visa and passport stuff required? Otherwise it looks awesome!

A:

i think one of my biggest inspiration is my mom and my dad... I think when we see end product of people succeeding we don't really see the hard work that goes behind but i grew up with a mom and a dad that just worked so hard and never complain ... so i think they both are my biggest inspiration and some of the people i always want to make proud


Q:

My brother was a rower and I competed against him doing pull-ups all the time, I would say about average for that age. Nothing special.

A:

Surprisingly it was pretty easy! Of the countries we are going through, the only ones we needed to get visas for were Turkey and Russia. The Turkish visa was online, and it was instant approval. Russia was a little bit more paperwork. You need to get an invitation from a travel company and then you need to go get an actual visa from the consulate itself. Lucky for us one of the members of our team lives near the consulate in Houston. The hardest part for paperwork was the insurance on a car driven by 5 people all under 25...


Q:

I was spectating at the crossfit games when you won it all in 2014. It was an awesome weekend and people going crazy when you went unbroken on the pull up bar for the pull ups, chest to bar and bar muscle ups. Good luck this year in Madison, WI.

My question is what's your favorite place to get poutine in Montréal? And what do you like on your poutine?

A:

What is your drive to stay in shape? What goes through your head in those difficult moments when you don't want to work out but you have to?


Q:

Who do you think will be the first to breakdown and want to go home?

A:

haha thanks for the support buddy.. La banquise has really good poutine and i like the italian kind :P


Q:

Oh shit this is a good one. My drive is for the people who can't do it. A best friend passed away about a month ago who I served with. He can no longer do it, so I do my best to go harder for the both of us. I am not perfect but I try as best I can.

A:

Definitely Murphy. He needs chocolate milk to keep his weight up, and I imagine there won't be much past Turkey. I foresee this leading to a mental breakdown, followed by a bit of arguing, followed by Murphy getting out of the ambulance and walking off into the middle of the Mongolian steppe never to be seen again...


Q:

haha awesome. Thanks for replying! I love La Banquise! I'll have to try the italian style.

A:

Sorry for your buddy, man. Great reason to keep on keeping on - I'm super jealous. You look fantastic!


Q:

Will you keep the lights and siren on the whole trip?

A:

its like spaghetti sauce on top


Q:

Thank you!

A:

Unfortunately, that's probably not legal, but being bold students, we may or may not give it a try.


Q:

Hi Camille, big fan here!! You're the only crossfitter I follow on Instagram and I followed you because you're also a chemical engineer. I'm a chemical engineering student (should be graduating this December) and I started crossfit last August and fell in love with it. My questions: how did you manage to balance between crossfit and pro crossfit? Did you attend classes? Or did you have to take online classes? How long did it take you to finish the degree? Do you have any idea what fugacity is?

Also, I love how your name sounds!! Camille Lablanc-Bazinet.

A:

What exercises do you do for the legs?


Q:

I love that you guys are going to try and do something good but looking at that ambulance and then thinking ahead another 12000 miles...are you not just going to be delivering a piece of junk there? Why not just send them the money instead?

A:

Congrats on your degree its no joke... i had to take lots of class at distance or half presence because of pairing with travel and competing... not easy to study in hotel and plane but you do what you have to do :) my degree took 6-1/2 year hahaha ye si know what fugacity is hahaha


Q:

Pull-ups

A:

The reason for delivering the car, is that the industry in Mongolia is far behind that of Europe and the US, so they can't just buy an ambulance. The ambulances have to be imported from somewhere else. While it might get a little beat up on the way there, we are having skid plates installed along with some other precautions to keep it in the best condition possible. The charity we are working with coordinates with the Mongolian government to approve the vehicles in order to make sure they are vehicles the government actually wants. Also, if the ambulance is going to be used in rural Mongolia where there are no roads, driving it there is a testament to the fact that it can actually do its job when it gets there. Thanks for the question!


Q:

About how often do you eat cheat meals? Do you ever feel guilty after? This is Brandee and im running out of ideas by the way lol ;)

A:

How do you like your coffee?


Q:

What made you decide to go north of the Caspian Sea instead of south, through Iran?

Sounds like you are well prepared anyway. I did the Mongol Rally in 2003 so I can confirm it's an awesome trip. Hundreds, if not thousands, of people do the same thing as you every year so you will have loads of support. Enjoy!

A:

hahaha i don't feel guilty after a cheat meal because i know i work hard for it and i eat good the rest of the time... but right now no real cheat meal until the game... normally ill go for ice cream or pizza


Q:

Lots of cream and sugar

A:

Thanks for the question. Being students, we are on a tight budget, and from what we researched, the Iranian visa itself is quite expensive and they tax the vehicle itself as well. So, we decided that would be too costly. That would also require another visa to go through Turkmenistan. We are excited for the route we are taking though! Can't wait!


Q:

Any tips on ring muscle ups?

A:

Get ready for this one. Favorite supplement?


Q:

I had a friend do the London version of this rally. I have no questions but share a couple of tips if you'd like to read them.

1) get the European AAA-equivalent (ARC?) membership. You got the ambulance checked out, but it may not always cooperate.

2) Keep vodka bottles with you in Russia. For "gifts" (when official-types stop your vehicle). I have no idea about crossing borders with liquor, so maybe try to stock up fairly soon after crossing.

Friend's team ran out of gas, had the damn thing break down multiple times, and they even tipped it on its side in Mongolia after another truck coming head on at them was taking his half in the middle. I think it was a much older vehicle and I'm glad to see that Mongolia is enforcing some standards in these kinds of rallies. Best of luck to you!

A:

practice the basic of gymnastic and master them :)


Q:

Amino Energy

A:

Those are some very good suggestions. The vodka bottles will definitely come in handy! Did they end up making it to the end?


Q:

My gf refuses to try weight lifting cause she says she doesn't want to look manly. How could best show her this isn't what happens when women lift?

A:

Do you recommend rowing machines as an "at home" exercise? I do Jiu Jitsu, and do a little mountain biking, but I'm still in need of more core strength and (a lot of) conditioning. I'm 41, 6'3", about 240-250 lbs.


Q:

Hey guys. My question: Do you want a beer? I literally live on your route (south Germany) and would happily invite you for one...

A:

i think once women start lifting and it boost their confidence everything changes


Q:

Get some ab straps. I owe a lot of my core strength to them!

A:

Heck yes. I'll PM you, and we could figure things out! Prost!


Q:

Oh my gosh... I'm speechless. I am your biggest fan!!! What is your favorite dessert to splurge on?! Thanks for answering - you're awesome! Rooting for you all the way!

A:

Do you have a story about a time when your muscles and ability to lift your body/ do crazy athletic shit came in handy in the real world? It looks cool in the gym and all, but has it ever come in clutch falling off a cliff or something practical? Thank you for your service !


Q:

Are you planning to change the oil a few times on the way?

A:

thanks :) anything chocolate... haha


Q:

Actually the opposite, my over confidence got me a broken wrist 3 months ago...

A:

We will definitely have to change it at least twice. As far as I know, oil has to be changed about every 3,000 miles, and since we are going over 10,000, we should probably have to change it 3 times. I have seen pictures of people doing it in previous rallies, and they found some janky little car lift/bridge type thing so they could get under their cars. It's sure to be an interesting sight seeing five college age guys changing the oil on an ambulance.


Q:

My girlfriend is next to me right now, you are a huge inspiration and motivator for her. She wants to wish you the best of luck this year at the games and hopes all your hard work pays off. How do you keep your nerves at bay before a big event? What is your favourite way to relax after a huge competition? P.S. Hi to Dave and Max.

A:

Were you doin flips and shit or just fast pull ups for the ladies? Glad to see you can grip and everything well again it seems


Q:

Prep it with full synthetic oil. 10k is a cakewalk for modern vehicles.

A:

thanks :) favorite way to realx=do nothing hahaha maybe movie time and hike... with dave and Max of course... snuggle time is life


Q:

Competing my third year for Ninja Warrior and they had this local competition where I just muscled up onto the thing and fell onto the concrete from about 14 feet up. The exact wrong way to do it!

A:

Synthetic oil it is then! Thanks for the suggestion! Glad to hear it shouldn't be much trouble


Q:

At my box I find that I'm always trying to do better than one of two others because we're very similarly built or have the same general capacity. Do you have any friendly rivalries within the sport? Women that you feel that you match up well against and mentally want to beat?

A:

3rd year? what's the farthest you've gotten and what are your weak points on the course?


Q:

wtf for?

Asking for a friend.

A:

hahaha thats cool... having people to compete with is just the best... lets say i have 39 other girls i will compete for the tittle of the fittest soon :P


Q:

The JUMPING SPIDER 3 times has taken me out. Hip flexor flexibility.

A:

Great question! I'm surprised it took this long to get that question directly. That's the first question all of our friends (and in particular our moms who think we're going to die) ask us. Actually though, we had some friends have the adventure of a lifetime doing a similar rally a couple of years back. We wanted to seek the same adventure but thought buying a car then junking it upon arrival seemed kind of wasteful. So, we sought to find something that had a charitable aspect to this. We then came across the Mongolia Charity Rally, which aims to help improve Mongolia's fledgling healthcare infrastructure by raising awareness in a unique manner (the wild adventure), raising funds, and donating a vehicle that had stringent requirements by the charity as well as Mongolian government to qualify. We found that this rally was perfect for us. We are aiding the Mongolian government in a manner out of the ordinary/other than simply donating cash. We are able to directly impact people and see it for ourselves while also having a fulfilling adventure of a lifetime.


Q:

Can you confirm this redditors comment about Ninja Warrior: This show is bullshit.

A:

Sounds like a really exciting journey. How long will it take you to complete? How many other groups will there be? Have you collected all of the funds you need?


Q:

Nothings perfect. It rained right before I went and I still had to go.

A:

Right now we have planned for about 6 weeks with a little contingency included in there. We included about a day for each border crossing, because we were advised that after the EU each border crossing takes a very long time. After that we added an extra few days in Mongolia so that we could experience our final destination and to account for any breakdowns or other random problems. Last I heard there were around 10 groups participating. Many will be driving ambulances, and one team I heard was driving a fire truck! We have collected some funds from family and friends, but as a group of college students, we are searching for all the help we can get. If you're interested, the donation page is linked at the top of our Facebook page above, through the Donate Now button.


Q:

Good attitude here I like it

A:

How often are you stopping for bathroom breaks?


Q:

Nope!

A:

That is honestly a question I have never thought about haha. As found on bladderandbowel.org, the average person goes to the bathroom about 6-7 times a day. I would guess that means we'll need to stop about 4 times each day for at least 41 seconds: 10 to run to the bathroom, 21 to pee (the amount of time it takes every mammal to go to the bathroom no matter the size), and 10 to run back. That will add at least two whole hours of bathroom stops


Q:

Do you have any gymnastic, dance or performance background?

Some of the moves in the longer video where you show some amazing locking of position (fake stairs/steps) are the kind of moves people practice for ages.

You're like a super mime!

A:

And 0 seconds for washing your hands


Q:

Haha I am an amateur rock climber so that helps!

A:

It's the little things that we're clearly going to struggle with


Q:

What's your favorite flavor of Crayola?

A:

Where'd you get that logo??? It looks awesome!


Q:

Red Brick Shit House

A:

First we had to come up with the name which probably took a month (We're a very indecisive group). Then since we chose One Small Steppe, we decided it need to be an astronaut. With that idea, we sent it off to one of our friends (Shoutout to Kat), and she made this masterpiece of a design!


Q:

[deleted]

A:

How much beer do 5 Belgians need to go 10,000 miles?


Q:

Consistency is key because you start to not see instant results and get discouraged. So stick with it!!


Q:

How long have you had your dog for? Could you tell us more about the dog?

A:

How large would you estimate the size of your ambulance to be if its volume was measured in opossums?


Q:

Lol he's not mine!!

A:

about tree fitty


Q:

You can still post pics and share info on the dog. We'd be okay with that.


Q:

What exercise regimen would you recommend to get close to the shape you are in now?

  • What's your diet, routine, etc.?
A:

My diet is just don't eat shit all the time. Put down the cookies once in a while but I don't count my Macros or get too into it.

Right now I am on a routine that is 500 pull-ups, 1 gallon of water, and 500 crunches a day for 30 days.. lol today is day 1 but successful so far!


Q:

Does Gunny know you're famous?

A:

LMFAO, that was funny.


Q:

Do u even lift bro?

A:

I partake, on occasion.


Q:

hello ridiculously-photogenic-pull-up-rowing-machine-marine-guy! here are some awkwardly forward questions:

How tall are you and how much do you weigh?

What's the best fitness advice you've ever received?

What's the best fitness advice you'd give someone working on getting in shape?

Thanks!

A:

5'11" 175

Remember the guy who quit? No one does...

It's going to be hard at first and you'll want to quit but don't.


Q:

Have you ever been approached to make a ridiculous infomercial for like Mike Eckert's totally insane ridiculous rowing in the air workout?

A:

Hahaha no but I think you're on to something!


Q:

When's leg day?

A:

I just yawned.... I can't do leg day today...


Q:

What are you favorite basic exercises?

A:

Pull-ups, I hold the world record for most in 60 seconds


A:

lol yeah I had inflamed tendons for a week after that one!


Q:

How long have you been a Marine?

A:

4 years


Q:

If you had one story to tell people what would it be?

A:

My dad once told me while I was competing, he said, why not you. I couldn't give him an answer and I wound up winning.


Q:

Are you single?

A:

Nope!


Q:

What running regimen do you do/use?

Who is your inspiration for being a better athlete or person overall?

And what is your favorite base you've been stationed at?

Thanks!

A:

I am not the best runner but I can still make around an 18 min 3 mile. Short interval training to get the HR up helps!

I have met a lot of good and bad people and I choose to take the best qualities from them and try to inspire others. My dad would be someone I would like to be like as a person.

Iwakuni Japan!!


Q:

Does your dog enjoy showing off his bunghole as a general rule or was this a special treat just for us? 😜

A:

Just for you all ;)


Q:

Hello Mr. Eckert! I'm about to head into my freshman year at college and want to put my time in summer to good use, physically. I've gone to the gym to work out 4x a week but want a better routine instead of what I'm doing now. Could you share your routine me/ what you think would be good for an 18 year old guy? You look amazing btw holy moly

A:

I personally use Time as my coach. Everything is at the top of the minute and you just go till you drop. Specifically though it would take me a while to make a specific routine for you because I am a personal trainer as well. My website will be up soon and that will help you a lot so keep in touch!


Q:

How much can you bench?

A:

275 was my max, but now... after a broken wrist I haven't even tried.


Q:
