I've registered to attend the American Kettlebell Club's Fitness Certification being held here in NY on May 24th. Being held over the course of one day, right here in my own backyard, was an opportunity I thought I shouldn't pass up. I am only a bit familiar with the AKC methods and this being fitness-oriented rather than girevoy sport-oriented, it had a greater appeal to jump in feet first and learn some more about kettlebells. So it should be cool.
I'm still registered and planning to attend the RKC Cert in August, being held at UCLA. And all of my current training is focused on being strong for the event. With that, I received some advice from Lauren Brooks, RKC to go back to swinging the 32kg for reps to help activate the hips more while de-emphasizing the knees. So that's what today's session consisted of...
2-Hand Swings: 32kg - 20, 30, 30, 20, 25 (total of 125 swings)
Last night was I got home from work I had a package waiting for me. Franklin Herman and I agreed to swap kettlebell DVD's. He was to lend me his Mike Mahler DVD and I was to lend him my Brett Jones DVD. Well, to my joy of joys not only did Franklin send the Mahler DVD over, but also included a surprise - the Steve Cotter Encyclopedia of Kettlebell Lifting DVD! I felt like it was Christmas. Thank you Franklin!! This is going to be a great weekend!
OK, time to rest up and get to work. Swing 'em high y'all!
