Exercise of the Week
The Sledgehammer Strike. Got a couple of tyres, a [sledgehammer](http://www.straighttothebar.com/sledgehammers/) and a few minutes to spare? Brilliant.
Incidentally, in this particularly case, [Rob](http://www.straighttothebar.com/v2/member.php?u=66) is raising money for *[Children in Distress](http://www.childrenindistress.org/news.php?pid=158)*. To throw a couple of bucks his way, head over to [Just Giving](http://www.justgiving.com/rob-russell/). Fantastic idea.
