Independence Day Workout

Happy Independence Day everyone!

Thanks to our forefathers, you are now free to speak, live and swing your kettlebells!

Today I worked through my second day of 4-minute sets. I went for an 'advanced' routine today, the one dubbed the "CinciNasty" by the American Kettlebell Club. Here's how it looked...

1-Arm Jerk: 12kg - 4 minutes (32L/32R)

Snatch: 12kg - 4 minutes (32L/32R)

Long Cycle: 12kg - 4 minutes (20L/20R)

Swing: 16kg - 20/20 (1.5 minutes)

All felt good up until about the last 2 minutes of the Long Cycle when it started to feel taxing. But I simply tried to relax and focus on my breathing while keeping good form. And you know what, before I knew it, the set was over!

Only recently have I reintroduced the Swing as my finisher and already I can feel the difference throwing those into the end of my session. My body is feeling more fluid with them and my breathing is getting better synchronized with the movement. Nice!!

That's it for today. Enjoy your freedom everyone! And let's all remember and pray for our soldiers who are putting their lives on the line every day for what this country was created for. God bless them and all of us here on Earth!

Nice work Mr. Brewer. Although I deeply wish that we could live in a world without war I totally share your sentiments about the soldiers doing their best to grant us our liberty. All the best to you on this freedom day and also to those ensuring that it remains so.
