Since I got a comment today from someone enthusiastic about kettlebells and asking if I’d stuck with them, I decided I better get back to working out with them.
Tonight I wedged myself off the couch and did about 10 minutes total of kettlebell work (gasping by the end of it). I used the Tabata Spring timing (20 seconds work, 10 seconds rest) and did the following:
- Warm-up with 2 Turkish get-ups each side
- Swings (right)

- Cleans (right)

- Good Mornings
- Snatches (right)

- Overhead press (right)

- Cool down
Yeow! I feel good! Na na na na na na na….
A good start I think, especially since it’s been about 4 months since I worked with Kettlebells. I’ll keep using the Tabata Sprint timing and gradually add minutes, exercises, and increase weight as I increase my fitness.
Also, I discovered a woman I think is kinda inspiring. Pamela MacElree. I think she’s connected with Kettlebell Athletics and you can find a lot of video’s of her out on YouTube with both her own account and Kettlebell Athletics. What I like most about her – she’s not a waif. And I kinda suspect that if I could drop all my extra weight, I’d have a figure like hers. Motivation baby, yeah.
