KB Challenge Week 3

August 18,2014: Monday..Overhead press with swings. Gotta go heavier! Gotta go faster! That was what I repeated last night while falling asleep. I woke up this morning thinking the same thing.

KB Swings End of Week 2

August 15, 2014: Friday! Yay! Front squats with swings..not so YaY. This day is the hardest of all the four days so I knew that my time would be slower today and my record breaking pace would come to an end with the squats. Today I RAMPed up to the weight that I’d use on […]

Week 2 Day 3… Even Faster!

August 14, 2014: Tired is not the word that I’d use to describe how I felt when I woke up this morning. Exhausted didn’t cut it either. But that doesn’t matter! Today is swings with dips. I’ve started working on a strategy to get through this challenge. During the first series of 10,15,25… I’ll try […]

It took literally more than 15 minutes at the McDonald’s drive through at 5am this morning to get a simple coffee. See where this is going? Anyways […]

Day 3 Kettlebell Challenge

August 7, 2014: Today I chose to sleep in…. for 30 minutes longer. Was that the difference? When I finally arrived to open up the gym I didn’t quite know how to describe how I was feeling or what mood I was in. I felt like I could just reach out and punch the first […]

My 10,000 Kettlebell Swings Challenge

10,ooo is huge number! It’s huge because through most of my entire life of training I never went past 100 reps on a good day and that day was a long, long time ago.  I decided to put up a challenge to myself. Not a typical “I’m getting back in shape” challenge that I always […]
