If you haven’t tried a few kettlebell exercises you are really missing it out. They are very challenging! Maybe it’s because of the weight distribution? If you think about the shape of a kettlebell vs the shape of a hand weights. During this particular crossfit work out we were doing cleans and because I let the kettlebell fly around too much I had a nasty bruise on my forearm. It’s possible that I should have gone heavier.
You can read more about proper form here.
My coach specifically states, “it should land as light as a feather and cause no bruising or pain to either the forearm…”

My strength coach has finally revealed the Super Secret Diet Protocol. You are going to find everything you need to know about weight loss in that article. Lately my weight has been bouncing all over the place. It’s time to get back to logging food. I find that the majority of my weight gain can always be traced back to what I’m eating. It’s because simple to trace and find but because I’m inconsistent it only take a matter of a few weeks to pack on the pounds.
I’m focusing on everything again because I signed up for a 5 mile race for the 4th of July. The last thing I want to do is run with added weight in the heat. It’s awful! I’m going to do everything in my power to get off as much as I can before that run. Wish me luck! What about you? Any goals that you have set for yourself?
Logged on my new challenge for June!
