I work 12 hour shifts, at night, all night (and they usually last about 13 hours- and I don’t sit the entire time or even 1/2 the time). I do not want my training to take a back seat because of my work schedule, so I try to get in a lift, absolutely no longer… Continue reading Need a quick workout? Here is an idea:
It has been many weeks, 6, 8? or so that I have not been training- for a competition. It has been refreshing, and definitely necessary for my psyche. I am struggling, because training for something is so important to me, keeps me motivated, and getting stronger, but taking some time away from HAVING to do… Continue reading A different point of view….
I know it has been a few days since I posted. I will be honest, I have been busy. Something about working nights makes me less effective at getting normal, everyday things done. As far as my training, I am working towards my goals in OALC with the 24kg. I have my doubts sometimes. I… Continue reading Updates and kettlebell things.
I don’t think we swing enough. I don’t think you have to swing a lot, but it is vital in your kettlebell sport progression. I want to share a portion of a little workout I put together for Lynn. Simple, effective, sweaty, swinging! Make sure you are warmed up. Make sure you have chalk and… Continue reading Swing a little this, Swing a little that.
Exercise is super important, especially if you want to be healthy. It isn’t the only way to be healthy, but it plays a large part. I think exercise is different from training, and training for performance versus aesthetics is vastly different. You can definitely benefit both ways, but your priority will lead to different outcomes.… Continue reading What are you training for? Are you training at all?
….Especially when I have not shoveled it in a year. And, I usually enjoy it. Gets me outside when I wanna be in my house, with my fuzzy slippers and something warm to drink. So I had a long, long day at work, left into a blizzard, finally made it home, ate, and shoveled- for… Continue reading Yes, I count shoveling as exercise…
….I put my thang down, flip it and reverse it…. Yes, I just quoted Missy Elliot. I guess I was unsure of how to start this post. I think the next few weeks are going to be busy- work, (and more work because I picked up overtime- I am down to one job at the… Continue reading Is it worth it, lemme work it…..
I hope that everyone had a really nice Thanksgiving holiday. I was able to spend a few days with my family, and it was absolutely wonderful (with the exception of acquiring food poisoning on Thanksgiving- at least I didn’t gain any weight!). My family means everything to me, and I love spending time with them.… Continue reading OOOOO my legs!
Given that today is Thanksgiving, mom’s favorite holiday, I will be with my family, and my workout will consist of something in the hotel gym in the morning and filling my belly and my heart for the rest of the day. (We were supposed to run a 5K but it is super slick outside!) I… Continue reading Workout update dos (2) and Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Here is my lift from Monday 11/24. Rowed 1000m and did my typical warm up. Then did 3 rounds of push-ups, lunges (8 per side- all different styles), abdominals, and dips (5-6 reps per round). I started with double lean forwards and from that position (bells overhead) I went into a rack position for 30… Continue reading Workout update uno.
