Clean & Press - A Warm Sunday in NY

I've been itching to add another day of practice to my kettlebell sessions. I now do a steady 3 days each week with a little extra here and there, but nothing consistent or too substantial. I felt pretty relaxed today and in good spirits so decided to throw in a ladder of Clean & Presses along with a little bit of Waiter's Walks and Farmer's Walks since it is a pretty warm day here for January - about 40 degrees F.

Clean & Presses: 16kg - 5/5, 24kg - 3 Ladders/2 Rungs each

Waiter's Walk: 16kg - 3 laps of approx 180 feet each lap, 90 ft in L arm/90 ft return in R arm

Farmer's Walk: 16kg - 2 laps, same as above

These made my day. Felt good and feel ready to tackle some Snatches tomorrow morning.

And oh yeah, I ordered the Kettlebell Basics DVD by Brett Jones and Michael Castrogiovanni!

Try add the double front squat or single front squat somewhere.
This can be technique oriented, meaning you don't have to go for heavy strength deal. I'm sure DVD covers it well.

You read my mind. After reading Brett's article, I realized that I need to start including more squats. I was going to start them tomorrow. I am going to alternate front squats and pistols. I'm thinking of starting a Mon/Tues - Thurs/Fri routine this week.

After reading the contents of Brett's video, I'm very excited to get it. Looks like a lot of good stuff is covered.
