One of the great things about kettlebells is that they are portable. We traveled to be with my wife's family for the forth of july and I didn't want to miss a workout so i took my kbells. At first I grabbed the 24kgs and then i thought maybe i'll "practice" with the 16kgs. After reading Mark Reifkin's blog I thought 16kgs may be plenty, especially since i'm putting them in the back of my accord with my two kids.
As Rif pointed out, light does not mean easy. I tried a freestyle workout again focusing on snatches. I mixed double snatches with double jerks, double front squats, pistols, swings, pushups, halo's and windmills. I got smoked. Period. Double snatches with 16kgs will put something on you, especially when you go from one exercise to another. I stayed fresh for each exercise but Holy Cow Batman, what a workout. Or should I say "practice." After all, I was practicing, trying to use perfect form, trying to concentrate and learn from my body.
You get out of it what you put in to it. That's what I learned today. Oh, I still like the freestyle workout. I do feel fresh and strong while doing it. I especially feel good through out the day after i've done it. Happy 4th!
