Tonight, and the last few nights I have felt like I was on a never ending treadmill…
Anybody ever feel that?
Too much work, too much mommy/wife/housewife stuff and not enough time to just stop and think.
Go Ahead, Stop and Think about all those things you never have time to think about. I’ll wait.. Now, once you’re done thinking, my first thought is how can I fit my workout into my day? Do I need to get up early, will it fit in at lunch, or is there time after school. Personally, I usually have time in one of those three spots to get a workout in and I plan everything else around that.
Technically, Wednesdays are rest days for me, however, today I worked on skills instead. Keeps me moving and doing something even if it isn’t lifting. My skills included Turkish Get-Ups and Core work on the GHD machine. I’ve talked about Kettlebells a lot here on this website as I am a firm believer in their powers to make women stronger and more confident just by swinging one bell. Just learning one movement can work your strength as well as get your heart pumping.
Then, in my inbox of 100′s of emails a day, I found this gem . It’s about women kettlebell lifters and how they are passionate about KB’s enough that they will compete in it as a sport! It sounds like technique is a big deal in these lifts! The Kettlebell lifts olympic lifts- snatch, cleans, presses, jerks, and swings just to name a few. This stuff looks fun, exciting and a new way to improve my lifting technique along with improving strength and body composition! I can’t think of a reason not to try it!
How many of you have tried the Long Cycle with a 53 pound Kettlbell?
