Need More Kettlebell








My newest heroine…So I’m a little bit behind on my training, but can easily get back on course – it just means doing some back-to-back days.

Overall I am finding it easier and easier to swing the 12kg, but I wouldn’t say it’s a piece of cake yet. I think I’m going to find a 10min cycle at that weight challenging. But I think I’ll learn a lot and being competing at heavier loads in no time.

GS Swing 3min, 1 hand switch X2 sets – 1 min breaks between setsΒ (12kg)
This is seriously my least favourite part of the entire workout. It is the brussel sprouts (which I hate) of kettlebell.

GS Cleans – 6min – 10rpm – 1 hand switch.Β This was relatively challenging – as in I was completely done at the end of 6min, but it could have been worse. I split it evenly with 3min on each arm.

GS Cleans – 8min – 8rpm – switch hand every min. I thought Boris must have been going soft, this was much easier than I expected. I think I’m getting the hang of the rack position and using it properly to help “rest”. Or at least I’m learning to get as comfortable as possible under the circumstances πŸ˜‰ This was one of the few moments of the workout where 12kg was starting to feel too light.

My Leader didn’t state how much rest I could take between sets. I would say I took 90sec between sets.

1 Arm Overhead Hold Walks -4 laps X2 sets – 30sec breaks.Β I used 12kg for this. It might have been too light but with only 30 sec rest I just knew 16kg would kick my ass in an impossible way. Next time it comes up I will try 16kg for sure. 4 laps was challenging, but I made sure that I walked at a slow and controlled pace.

Farmer Holds OK Grip – 1min holds X 4 sets – 30 sec breaks. This nearly killed me πŸ˜‰ I used a 24kg bell and every set was a challenge. My grip was shot by the end. I think Boris would have approved.

Hey Boris – In 3 more days I’ll need more workouts! πŸ™‚
