Yesterday, I practiced a few pistols and handstand pushups for about 30 minutes. Today, I’m still keeping it simple, just doing swings and get-ups. Simple and sinister, so says Enter the Kettlebell. Still trying to concentrate on what my body is doing and how it feels. Really trying to make my swings “pretty”.
A- TGU for 5 minutes
32kg x 6 reps per side
B- 2 hand swings w/ 32kg
15 reps x 7 sets; 30 second rest b/w sets = 105 reps
C- Swings Proper w/ 16kg
10/10 x 10 sets; 30 seconds rest between sets = 200 reps
Get-ups felt heavy; 5 minutes was all I needed. Swings were good. Used a hook grip through-out and tried never to squeeze the bell. Hip hinge was good and crisp, good stretch in hamstrings. Felt fresh when I finished. I’m just so happy to be able to swing.
That’s it, real simple. May or may not workout tomorrow. If I do, it will probably be mostly “Resilient” exercises. I have my first Intro to Kettlebells workshop tomorrow. Hopefully all will go well. Time to grow! The journey has just begun.
