The Power of Working on the Kettlebell Basics, a Workout and a Video (mostly about food)

Before leaving for NJ/NY last week to train with Master RKC Phil Ross, I wanted to make sure to make the absolute most of the training time up there, so over the past few weeks I had ramped up both my strength endurance activities, as well as generally the high intensity cardio (heavy swings, sprawls*, Ultimate Sandbag drills like rotational lunges, and things that nearly have me falling on my face like a whole bunch of kettlebell snatches then a quick lap around a track x4 etc).

Unboxing This Week's Delivery from Space Girl Organics! [VIDEO]

After mentioning Space Girl Organics to a new friend on a recently flight, I was inspired to make a new (and somewhat better lit) unboxing video for today's "standard vegetable fresh" delivery.  I mean... I had to unpack it to put it all in the fridge anyway, right?  So Karen I hope you enjoy this (or have time to watch) but here are the goodies I received today!  (And how I plan to use at least some of it!)


The Scorcher: a Kettlebell and Bodyweight Workout

For whatever reason it seemed like we all had a bit of extra energy to burn off this week, so I planned a real fun one.  Part challenge, part skills, part mobility, with a little extra dose of extreme cardio (it is if the kettlebell swings are heavy enough).  I am super proud to report that my little band of kettlebell buddies are so advanced at this point that everyone who showed up on Tuesday did their heavy swings with the 32kg. And we ONLY do legit swings on my watch, so the amount of sheer power generated by this small training group is very off the charts.

Strategy Wednesday: A Visit to the Floatation Tanks...

[Warning, this is not a normal post about exercise or food.  It gets a little weird and silly in places, so if you don't feel like reading it, no hard feelings, there will be more talk about exercise and food coming later in the week.]

Whenever possible, I try to take at least a small part of each Wednesday (at least an hour, hopefully much more) for redirection, goal setting, strategy, assessment, and if at all possible some form of relaxation/reflection.  Sometimes, if things are not too hectic (and that's cause enough for reflection...) I'll even take the whole day.

Pushmi-Pullyu Workout for Kettlebells and Bodyweight Exercises

Pushmi-Pullyu kettlebell and bodyweight workout

This wasn't just an excuse to make a silly graphic, I promise.

Forgot to share this one from a recent advanced fun session -- we did this one with fairly heavy kettlebells, but never compromising form. 

We started with a Primal Move warm up then went through the Trifecta from Paul Wade (good stuff -- bridge, l-sit, twist). Did a quick 20 swings with a moderate sized kettlebell the proceeded with 5 rounds of this interesting combo, resting as necessary:

  • 3 dead hang pull ups immediately followed by 3 per side kettlebell military presses

Good Things

Pavel's HardStyle Abs is not for sissies.  A great review for anyone who has attended the RKC Level 2 Workshop or who missed the old Bodyweight Workshop back in the day.  As well as a great intro to this powerful method of training.  These deceptively simple but difficult exercises build a strong, injury-resistant body that just happens to also look great.  Get it NOW!
