It's not as bad as it sounds. Actually, it's not really bad at all.
Lately I have been pushing things forward, working with the 24kg and 28kg bells. Well I started to develop some muscle soreness in my forearms. To give myself the chance to heal and get stronger I decided to drop down for the rest of this week and work with the 16kg bells. Here's today's session....
Jerk: 2 x 16kg - 7 minutes for total of 58 jerks
Snatch: 16kg - 6 minutes for total of 92 snatches
Jump Rope: 2 min on / 1 min off for 5 rounds
I could have pushed for longer sets with these, but that would have defeated the purpose of active rest. I do notice that my muscular endurance has dropped since working with the heavier bells. As such, I think I am going to drop down in bell size for a bit longer and work on my endurance and pace, you know some of the "finer" points of kettlebell lifting.
