Man, Field, Kettlebell

There’s something about the experience of driving out to a nice spot, taking just a kettlebell and yourself, and getting a gut-busting workout. It’s kind of amazing, really, My workout today consisted of:

3 min jog to warm-up, along with 30 bodywt squats, 20 push-ups, and 1 min of planks

15 min of easy kb circut, ‘groving’ swings, snatches, cleans and front squats

99 24k snatches in 5 minutes – did 20 on the minute (10 right, 10 left) for each of five minutes

This was a simply brutal workout – I have no other way of describing it. It probably took me 30 minutes to stop sweating. However, I think a couple things I need to work on are as follows:

-Overhead lockout strength – the ability to ‘rest’ with the kb in the overhead position is key to saving time, instead of having to rest with the kb on the ground

-Quick hand switch – need to figure out how to switch hands without taking a half swing in between.

That’s about it! See you all tomorrow … more snatching on the agenda …
