Today I decided to perform the Boost Max VO2 Snatch Training Protocol. Again my hands still are not where they need to be in order to go all out, but I am growing weary and frustrated with them. Even though I have received proper training I don't seem to get the feel for how to [...]

082208- My 3 Mile Run Day

So I decided to run 3 miles today. I haven't run anything beyond a few quarter mile sprints in a given workout for months- maybe not at all this year. Of course I train cardio as I work with Kettlebells and perform HIIT training regularly, but the long distance stuff is something I shy away [...]

Today I wanted to challenge myself a bit more than I have. My energy levels were back- for the most part- and so I wanted to see what I can handle with the 24kg Jerks. I decided to do a 10 Min. Set and dragged one of my clients into the fun as well. :)Workout:Movement [...]

This Weekend

I held my first Kettlebell Essentials Workshop and it went VERY well. 7 people went from being unsure about kettlebells to confident with the basic lifts. The Essentials class focuses primarily on the Swings and Turkish Get-ups, but I also introduce the Clean and the Push Press. I first began each movement module with demonstration [...]

I haven't been feeling well at all for the past couple days so I took the last 2 off from training. Normally I would have trained, but my body was lacking energy due to recovery that I was forced to wait it out. Today I am feeling much better, but still not 100%. I knew [...]
